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.
Crack Pairing: The story initially began as a self-imposed challenge by the author, who wanted to see if she could convincingly write a romantic relationship between Syaoran and Kurogane.

The Woobie: Syaoran has a pretty miserable time in this story.
