YMMV / The Dreamer

Go To

  • Alternate Character Interpretation:Or rather, Alternate Event Interpretation. On this page of the dreamer, 3rd panel, Alexander seems to recall fondly on the dancing, and since dancing with the same man who was not your blood relation more than once was a social taboo, one can only guess what he meant by the dancing... however, it could also be interpretated as simply dancing, although that seems like a slim chance.

  • Crack Pairing: You would be surprised about how many people ship Alex/Bea...
  • Dry Docking: Lora Innes probably hasn't given Nathan Hale a love interest precisely because of this.
  • Dry Docked Ship: Alex/Bea, if some of the hints are correct.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Alexander Hamilton, obviously. Also, Nathan Hale.
    • Don't forget Freddy and John.
  • Estrogen Brigade: Practically every single male character is this. Nathan has a very large fanbase concerning this trope.
    • He has a good following in life, too. It was said that "all the girls in New Haven fell in love with him." His lady admirers were equal to, if not surpassing, the fawning females filling the fanbase.
  • HoYay: Alan/Nathan. Especially when they fought. And don't tell me you can't see Knowlton/Alan or even Alan/Hamilton!
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Some of the fans read it just for Nathan Hale and Alexander Hamilton.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name:
    • Balan or Bealan (Alan/Bea)
    • Whato or Bean (Ben/Bea)
    • Bale, Bathan, Whale, Beat (Nathan/Bea)
    • Whamilton, Balex, Bealex, Bamilton, Bealexander Whamilton (Alex/Bea)

    • Frea, Beaddy (Freddy/Bea)
    • Byvette, Bowe, Whowe (Bea/Yvette)
    • Biz, Beabeth (Bea/Liz)
    • Bohn, Jea, Dreamcest (John/Bea)
    • Jizz, Lohn (John/Liz)
    • Jen, Jato, Mulliben (John/Ben)
    • Fizz, Fizzy (Freddy/Liz)
    • Bizzy, Benz, Waco (Ben/Liz)
  • Relationship Writing Fumble: Probably one of the reasons why there are Alexander/Beatrice shippers, since they (or at least Alexander)seemed rather chummy for merely being friends.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Alan/Bea to some fans.
  • Unfortunate Implications: At a Comic-Con panel on cover designs, Lora remarked that the cover for he second issue, of Allen pointing a gun at Ben, no longer worked considering the rise in racial tensions.

How well does it match the trope?
