YMMV / Reconstructing Amelia

Go To

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Zadie a lesbian (or bisexual woman) that's in love with Dylan? It's damn hard to say. Dylan says she's not, but Zadie's over-protectiveness of Dylan stems into obsession, and she's obviously very jealous of anyone else Dylan gets close to. And technically, Dylan never says Zadie isn't gay - she just says they were never together. It's entirely possible that Zadie has unrequited feelings for Dylan that Dylan either doesn't notice or chooses to ignore.
  • Les Yay:
    • Zadie and Dylan are so close, even Amelia wonders if there's something deeper there.
    • Amelia's admiration of Dylan veers into this at times. Which turns out to be 100% intentional — Amelia's a lesbian.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Zadie outing Amelia, which leads to her school-wide humiliation.
  • The Woobie: Amelia and Kate, the former after she joins the Magpies and the latter after Amelia dies.
    • Jerkass Woobie: Sylvia.
      • For a brief moment towards the end, Zadie becomes a Jerkass Woobie as well. With a mother like that, it's not much surprise she's so messed up. And it's hard not to pity her when her own mother believes she killed Amelia, and Zadie is very clearly hurt.


How well does it match the trope?
