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.
Draco in Leather Pants: Subverted, while the story is sympathetic toward Tarrlok, it does not condone the evil things he's done. It takes Tarrlok some time and hard-earned Character Development to become repentant of what he had done; even then the narrative reminds us that Tarrlok's is not a good man.
Friendly Fandoms: The writer of Strings, Lantur and the writer of We Were Friends, with-the-villain enjoy each others work and the fans like imagine that both stories are part of the same narrative.
