    Unfortunately, there will always be the readers/viewers who just don't get the subtle meanings in your creation, as there will also always be the readers/watchers who over analyze everything they can get their hands on. For fanfiction specifically, the great thing about working in an area where your readers can directly talk to you (a thread) is that they can ask questions, so if they don't get something, they'll probably ask about it. You can also add authors' notes at the end in spoilers, that explain the symbolism for those who can't or don't want to figure it out themselves. Because of that, it's much less necessary to hit people around the head with your symbolism, and just leave it subtle.

    thank you for waiting!
