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.

"Never delete anything. If you canít stand to look at it, just change the font to white and keep going." (from a 2011 pep talk by Erin Morgenstern)
