YMMV: Illium

  • Genius Bonus: Catching all of the various literary references from the overt to the subtle make reading these novels a rip-roaring ride for those inclined towards voracious reading habits.
  • Ho Yay: Mahnmut believes he sees this in Shakespeare's 116 sonnet to the mysterious "Young Man." In a feverish dream though, Mahnmut's dream version of Shakespeare is quick to disabuse him of the notion. Played straight with Achilles and Patroclus though, much to Hockenberry's disgust.
