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.
YMMV: The Mark of the Lion
Poison Is Evil: In the first book, Julia poisons her abusive husband to be rid of him. It's tempting to count this as an inversion since he was such a vicious brute, but considering that its opened the door for her to do worse things afterwards, it could still count as a straight example. It pretty much depends on how you weigh the picture as a whole, since itís pretty ugly no matter what.
