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: Mister Roberts
Complete Monster: Morton figures out that Roberts would do anything for the men on the Reluctant. So when they get into port where liberty (shore leave) was expected, Morton cancels liberty and then uses it to force a deal from Roberts: No more letters asking for transfers, no more talking back to the Captain in front of the crew, and Roberts tells no one about the deal. Morton knows Roberts can't refuse, and that Roberts won't go back on his word.
And afterward, Morton uses Roberts' agreed-upon silence to trick the crew into thinking Roberts is angling for a promotion instead of sticking with them. The bastard.
Sequelitis: Ensign Pulver, made with a different cast and wiping away Pulver's ending moment of awesome in the original.
