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.
What Do You Mean, It's Not Political?: The plot of Edward Red seems to mimic the very real contemporary problem Britain has over what distance they should maintain, if any, from the rest of Europe, as well as the issue of becoming a part of the global European currency.
What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: In the plot of Jake Black, the Big Bad's plan is to merge an alternate, "chaos" dimension with ours, causing the world to be submerged in darkness. The final battle between him and Jake takes place on a bridge that extends over the top of this surging darkness Bearing in mind that the entire plot of the story so far has revolved around whether or not Jake would finally descend into "darkness" and kill the villain...yeah.
