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.

Esoteric Happy Ending: Both Jack and Thorgil die (but fortunately, they're taken to the Islands of the Blessed to become bards). Their families are left to mourn.
