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.
An example: At the height of his...erm evil, Zyn apparently has taken to stealing from the Muggles, injuring them, setting fire/blowing things up, and psychologically breaking various Muggles into being his lackeys. The author even calls him a "terrorist". The rest of the Muggles act like he's a standard rebellious teenager, shaking their heads and referring to his behavior as "naughty pranks".
Anvilicious: According to the prologue, the nuclear wars could ultimately be traced back to the abuse of eminent domain laws...which, according to the author, are inherently evil anyway.
Author's Saving Throw: There's a revised version that drops the discussion of eminent domain and the "piercing screams for help" line, among others. Sadly, only the prologue appears to have gotten any attention.
Designated Hero: Rah, who does absolutely nothing to try to help Zyn when he goes off on his downward spiral. Even after we're told that Zyn is forcing Muggles into submission to obey him and attacking other people, Rah doesn't do a freaking thing!
Heck, Rah never does anything heroic at all!
Designated Villain: The book makes every effort to make readers believe that Zyn is a horrible person, even calling him and his followers "terrorists" at one point. The only things we actually see him do on screen is act ridiculously nasty towards his followers and plan to move to an island.
