Bujold, you BASTARD.

I'm happy to see it used to mean, "you are a person who is stretching custom in ways I don't like!"

I generally to use it as "You are a person who has done something that has hurt someone else, and that pisses me off". I can get pretty wrapped up in good stories, such that when the author does something horrible to a character, I feel angry / sad / hurt / gutted / whatever.

I get over it a lot faster when the injured party is an imaginary character, though, and can wryly agree with jhetley that the author is doing zir job and making the story compelling.
