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 War of the Flowers
Complete Monster: There are several truly despicable characters here, but probably the worst are Hellebore's two sons- biological son Anton, who is the fairy equivalent of a sociopathic Mad Scientist, and the adopted Terrible Child, who, as his name suggests, is an avatar of pure evil.
Harsher in Hindsight: Williams was tempted (possibly pressured) to remove the initial attack by the dragons because of something that happened during writing: 9-11-01. The similarity is striking and, for some, unpleasant.
