YMMV: Northland Series
- Alternative Character Interpretation: Does Koschei actually love Laika? He seems to respect her, he never rapes her (though that isn't really his style in mythology anyway), and he helps the good guys in the final battle, even though the Directions can't force him to.
- Word of God says yes, he does.
- HOLY COW, that was dumb. Never mind.
- Crazy Awesome: Drake Firebrace.
- Squick: The reindeer urine, for a start.
