These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Green Snake
Alternative Character Interpretation - Green Snake's motivation for killing the scholar. Being new to emotion, she is quite childlike and simple. She is only beginning to understand love and jealousy. When her sister dies saving her child, she sees love is unselfish even to death. In her mind, no-one would want to live after seeing their true love die, so she spares the scholar from suffering by running him through.
