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: Hollow Kingdom Trilogy
Draco in Leather Pants: Marak Sixfinger and almost every Marak in fanfiction. During test readings, the readers would dislike Kate for not immediately falling in love with Marak even though he was attempting to kidnap her and force her into marriage.
Jerkass Woobie: Til. Yeah, she's not a very nice person, at all, but she didn't have the easiest of childhoods. What with Kate, who shies away from confrontation, for a foster mother, and Marak...just Marak for a foster father, and being raised in a rather hostile environment where just about everyone had magic except her, constantly overshadowed by her foster brother - really, is it surprising she grows into such a nasty, bitter adult? "Small wonder that Til doesn't do so well."
