It's also known as "Fanon":

"Fanon, also known as generally accepted 'Headcanons' among fanfic writers and Roleplay crowds, is the set of theories based on that material which, while they generally seem to be the 'obvious' or 'only' interpretation of canonical fact, are not actually part of the canon. Occasionally, the explanation seems good enough to just be 'common sense.'"

People thought the movie Coneheads was intended to be a scathing look at America's immigration policy. Yet the people behind the film were saying, "nope...we just wanted to make a funny movie about space-people with coned craniums."

I've seen that artists' other comics, and I think they're cute. But I don't take them too seriously.

Your dream, Herald (or one of them)--they're all finally falling in love with tropes and partially admitting it.
Hm... would this be "hell freezing over", or "end of the world" type events?
