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 Obernewtyn Chronicles
Alternative Character Interpretation: Atthis is a Magnificent Bastard who has cunningly manipulated people and events, playing off of the fears and hopes of entire species to warp any respective mythologies within a one hundred mile radius of Elspeth, in order to make her their Chosen One, and hence make sure that the believers of said mythologies will sacrifice both their own lives and that of their followers for her sake.
Foe Yay: Elspeth and Ariel. Especially in The Keeping Place.
