... all the pronouns




Tvtropes.org is a website dedicated to cataloguing 'tropes'; recurring characters, events and themes in literature, and presenting them in a way useful to writers looking for better ways to break down and analyse manuscripts.

Or it's meant to be. In reality it's a haven for neckbeards:

quote:

This Troper combines Jerkass with Grammar Nazi. It's quite possibly the worst combination one could get. I've been known to punch my best friends in the stomach over a tense error or for no reason at all. My standard greeting is either a glomp with bonus pressure or just a standard mauling. However, when their grammar is correct, or I just don't feel like it, I'm a pretty likable guy. My friends say I'm a nice guy even when I'm mauling them though.

quote:

This Troper belongs a few centuries in the future. Well, at least 40 years in the future (the time scientists predict curing aging which makes us immortal unless effected by outside forces), as this tropers lifelong goal is immortality. Oh, and I happen to also be a socialist who has a dislike for communism AND capitalism (both are too far on the scale, while socialism is the best of both worlds). Also, I am too intelligent for many of my peers.

quote:

This Troper will often go a few weeks without showering/brushing her teeth and instead living chaotically and playing games, studying, and dealing with her family/friends.
Bigots:

quote:

Okay, maybe I have not described it well enough it IS them saying "Black people aren't attractive." I believe my older brother's words were that he finds their skulls to be too spherical. Monkey-like.

quote:

You can't legislate equal pay when one side is willing to work twice as hard for twice as long in much more dangerous jobs. In order to bring about equal wages and complete equality, women themselves have to step up and do these things. Work the 60-80 hour weeks, put their necks on the line to advance their career sacrificing their families and social livelihoods like men do.

quote:

To better illustrate, my aunt is lesbian. I really don't want to think about it. I've meet her, talked and all, but as long as they keep to themselves, I have no problem dealing with them. They too understand this. I don't want to think about it, but as long as I don't need to see/hear what happens after I leave, I can live with the situation. Acting any other way would go against my moral code.

quote:

Mostly handicapped people. A little courtesy and understanding is great, but I think it's BS to expect handouts because there's something wrong with you.
assholes:

quote:

This Troper was having a terrible week. Like, everything was terrible. On Friday I... knocked over my rootbeer while pouring it. My sister said for me to clean it up and I punched her in the face. A second later I wondered why the heck I did it.

quote:

This troper took a few levels when, after years of being a Woobie so pitiful Shinji would say what the heck is wrong with you, I had enough of a girl I liked always going for this tall, blond guy. When they were talking right in front of me in the street and holding arms and talking and all that, I said, "Shut. The. Hell. Up." The boy looks around and walks over, trying to look menacing. Martial arts studies come in. I take a punch to the forehead and then slide under and punch him in the stomach, he goes backwards and I land another one to his face. I then go berserk and full body tackle him. He managed to crawl away, and say, "That kid...is inhuman!"

quote:

This troper has been faced with the dilemma of what to do when the child hits first. Due to being subjected to playground violence as a child, being hit by someone tends to make me react violently and instantly, without thinking. I'm in my early twenties now and have a niece who's a toddler that thinks she can get her way by hitting people who are much bigger and stronger than she is. It is exceedingly hard not to react violently back, but I do try not to give in to my urges to chokeslam her every time she hits me. He doesn't want to, and it's a reflex he's trying to unlearn.
budding psychopaths:

quote:

People have to push me incredibly far to provoke retaliation. I'm twenty years old and only really resorted to physical violence one or two times. Still, I have something to say before the next time around, "This day is the day your life's end begins. For your defeat at my hands will be swift and painful. Once you are no longer capable of resisting I will come inside you and make you my woman."

quote:

This troper used to be na´ve but soon found out that humanity is full of brutal idiots, He often has brief thoughts of massacre.

quote:

This troper knows how to cook and prepare human flesh as well as skin someone else and use their flesh and hair for warmth. If they just recently died, who's going to miss 'em?

quote:

This troper would want nothing more than to deprive all others of any kind of relationships, due to failed relationships in his own life, and always taking the absence of evidence of new relationships in his life to be evidence that it will never happen again, not ever, at least not in a manner of rudimentary satisfaction. So, he plans the destruction of sexuality itself, not just in humans but in all terrestrial life, to the logical extreme of having a seldom-spoken wish ''to kill all lifeforms that reproduce sexually in some way, including a huge amount of Earth's biosphere'' - but oddly, he would wish to shed his organic body and become a Virtual Ghost, to take control of the US and Chinese defence systems at the same time to bring about Phase 1 - global thermonuclear war. He would simply use a hooker but deeply ingrained mental programming prevents him from doing so as much as a I Cannot Self Terminate prevents The Terminator from destroying itself - also he considers himself an "omega male" when in fact he's probably only a low-grade beta at the worst.

quote:

I wanna mess you up so bad now. I wanna rip off your skin and pound your face into a bloody pulp and tear out all your hair and bust your ribs and break all your fingers like chicken bones and take big huge bites out of your tender flesh and just draw these big red lines with my scalpel and punch your stomach until you puke and step on your toes and just rip you apart with my bare hands.
and this:


There are four main sections to tear into:

Troper Tales, in which the site's users ("tropers") talk about how similar to anime characters they are and how UNIQUE and SPECIAL everyone finds them.
The Forums, in which the tropers talk about how UNIQUE and SPECIAL they were during their day and which anime characters they want to sleep with.
Your Mileage May Vary, In which occurs
and Tvtropes proper, which has something to do with writing.

New edits can be found under 'tools' in the top-lefthand corner of the site. Simply open that up and search for 'tales' or 'ymmv' to see any new entries.

There are two spinoff sites:

Fetish Fuel, in which tropers talk in more depth about which anime characters or children they want to sleep with.
and It Just Bugs Me, which isn't perfectly sperg-free but seems to be showing signs of improvement.

Here is a youtube channel dedicated to dramatic readings of tvtropes and here is their forum.

Go forth goons and bring back the best examples of these sad excuses for human beings.

Disclaimer: The last tvtropes thread here on SA ended in a raid that got the thread closed down. Please resist the urge to make changes to the wiki itself or post on the forums. It's funnier if you let the tropers dig their own holes.

UPDATE 01/08/11: The Troper Tales revamp has finally launched. An archive may be found here.

UPDATE September '11: The troper tales relaunch has been cancelled and some tropers are trying to rebuild offsite. Troper tales is dead! Long live troper tales!

Just a tip for anyone looking for Troper tales pages in specific: When on a trope page (a normal section on TVtropes) up at the top but under the search bar etc. should be a bunch of buttons starting with two red speech bubbles, and optional components such as "Laconic", "YMMV", and "TroperTales". If a trope has a TroperTales, you can reach it from there with a click.

This came in handy when I wanted to check if surprise sex Is Love had a Troper Tales page. It didn't, thank Christ.

You're like me. When I started reading the site, "This Troper" was allowed on the main pages. They created TroperTales (which I would never click on when browsing) and it apparently went downhill like you wouldn't believe.

While Troper Tales and Fetish Fuel are inexcusable, it may be worth noting that Your Mileage May Vary is there to prevent gigantic sprawling flamewars over stupid helldump bullshit, not to accuse people of being bad people for thinking child-sex is disgusting.

It's funny how even though the staff of TVTropes are okay people and seem to actually care about the wiki's quality (hence ghettoing Troper Tales and throwing Fetish Fuel off the site entirely), the site's users are worse than goddamned GameFAQs.

If I remember correctly, it's that she's able to 'bond' to fictional characters and talk to them. Like, even if she's not seen the show their from or something. She tries to reform villains and stuff. I want to believe she's a really elaborate troll.

This is my personal favorite, from the Sarcasm Mode page.

Strange example for this troper, who's arch-nemesis used Sarcasm Mode while this troper was pissed off, saying things like "Oh no, [This Troper] is angry. Everybody run." in a sarcastic tone. Understandably, this did not help my annger, and I ended up throwing my lunchbox at him.

They believe that anime and video game characters exist in a seperate universe and speak to the 'Bonder' in their dreams. They can then 'bond' with them by absorbing a small part of their souls. DarkLadyCelebrian is of their more outspoken representatives on the internet. She almost started a cult in the tvtropes forums by saying "it's just as valid as christianity".

Alright, you know how some people think they are the reincarnation of Napoleon, or his ~soulmate~, or whatever? Now instead of Napoleon, it's Sephiroth, or Harry Potter, or someone else who is goddamn fictional. That's soulbonding.

One exception to the mods is Madrugada. He proved himself a huge shithead last thread, basically not wanting any change that would make TVTropes better, and banned a couple of guys for disagreeing.

That aside, like Ironicus mentioned, check out CrazyGoggs' Youtube for a whole lot of this poo poo. They're up to 68 episodes now, and I think it's by the same girl who made all those parody videos of Chris-chan.

I still really like TVTropes for the informative and interesting articles regarding writing and cool shows I've never heard of. In fact, it's pretty much how I found these forums: by clicking "Random Article" and landing on their Let's Play page. "Talking over video games? Sounds kind of boring...oh hey I heard Sonic 2006 was awful why would anyone play that?"

But speaking of which, while I will defend a lot of the articles the Let's Play page in question has it's own brand of stupid...

There are individual articles for Let's Players.

And Troper Tales and all that related crap needs to burn, it's idiotic, it's creepy, and it adds absolutely nothing of value to anything. I'll be actively following this thread to see and post any of the abominations that show up there. Ugh.

Me too. When I first saw TroperTales, I actually thought it was boring and went back to the regular articles right away. Didn't know it was such a huge trainwreck until these forums and CrazyGoggs got a hold of them. The main articles are actually really fun reads for the most part. Except the anime, fan fiction, and webcomic sections. And visual novels when they fill up the games category.

Anyway, saw this in the Fandom!Secrets thread.

Morbid curiosity got the best of me.

Happened once to this troper back in 2006 while she was raiding in World of Warcraft. Actually we fought Razorgore that day, it was the tenth try (or the twentieth, whatever) and it was the first time the fight went on longer as usual ... so unfortunately ... well. But of course we wiped again shortly after AND it caused a serious argument with this tropers boyfriend - "WTF? You rather pee your pants instead of leaving that GAME for 5 min???"

I'm glad I hate MMO's.

E: vvvv YMMV is an excuse for sperglords to sperg outside of troper tales and the other discussion pages. It needs to go the same way as This Troper and red-link every time someone tries to use it.

The Picard Maneuver


I'm loving the "Awesome Moments" pages because every single entry in each catergory is so incredibly full of poo poo. This is a sampling just from the "Standing Up To Bullies" section:

quote:

This troper was usually verbally harassed by these two females..(whores) in school... this troper couldn't bring himself to hit them to shut them up.. since retaliation always made him look bad, since he's 6 foot 4 and they are below 5 foot 6... so what did him and his Nakama do when they ran into them at the movies?? Insult them and make them look immature... It was especially funny since the boys they were with were our good friends and laughed with us as we tore them a new one... after that the following week at a special school event, we ended up in a brawl with one of the girl's older brothers and their friends... who do you think won??

quote:

This troperette and her friend Kaycee (ADHD girl) have an odd habit of carrying around toy guns and knives, and pointy umbrellas. Now, one rainy day, this guy walks up to us and says "Gimme your money and everything else you got on you or I will shoot your brains out" in Tagalog. I have the tendency to speak big words when mad, so:
Me: I do not believe you will. My friend and I shall now continue our journey to our residence.

Dude won't believe me. He whips out his knife and snarls, "Don't joke" in Tagalog again. Keep in mind, Kay and I carry around toy guns and knives and pointy umbrellas. Guess what we both did? Yep. Kaycee whipped out a toy knife and gun while I just started poking him with my umbrella. We kept it up till we turned him in at the police station, where Kay said this priceless line:
Kaycee: Thanks for playing! We were wondering what to do with these toys. Ooo, is that a cell?

The guy is now in jail and crying over the fact that he got tricked by a girl wielding toys and poked all over by a girl with a pointy umbrella.

quote:

This troper and his family have quite a few since all while growing up he was the small and cried easily and knew more than most. Most never knew of our a hidden centers of rage.

* First one came when I was 5 and playing at a park when this bully decides it was fun to insult me so I just turned around socked the kid in the face and broke his nose.
* Fifth grade every moron liked to play "Open Chest" and I wasn't playing around them but instead was waiting in line to go on a field trip I wanted to go on really badly when this idiot comes and hits me in my stomach while shouting "Open Chest!" I land on my knee and just growl (really bad sign) and just charge after the kid. Everyone in my class only seen me get that mad once and one girl locked my arms up and tried to hold me back and was failing and it basically turned into EVERYONE from my class grabbing the girl and the next person as they tried to stop me while I was walking forward while pulling all the students with every step. The kid who punched me looked like he was about to poo poo a brick.
* Junior year of high school, a group of jerkasses liked to pick on me a lot and on a particular day when everyone was lining up to leave class, they were shoving the resident stoner into me and when I pushed the jackass off me they would shove him right back into me. Getting more and more pissed I just said gently caress it, got out of line and put down my bookbag before grabbing the largest of the bullies by the scruff of his jacket pulling him towards me, picking him up off the ground, and then throwing him into a corner. Said bully is looking dumbfounded before he gets back up and gets up in my face spouting off empty threats while I look back at him with a cold stare before going to pick up my bookbag since I could tell he was more afraid of what I could possibly do due despite my smaller size. The news soon circulated around school and he only resorted to saying poo poo from a distance rather than get near me after that point.
* Same year, one of the same morons goes digging into my bookbag to get a broken (no wristband) watch out after I told him three times not to go digging through my stuff. After the third attempt I get up and tell him that I'm not playing around. The idiot thinks he's sly tries to hit me with a with sloppy right hook which I duck under and as it sails over I shoot back up and in the same motion I grab his larynx and dig my fingernails into it causing the kid's eyes to go wide. As I let go I tell him and the whole class that was watching that if I wanted to I could've killed him. Class starting talking about how that was a lie when the substitute teacher that was watching just chimed in and confirmed my badass threat for me causing them to look at me with a tad bit of fear.
* Jerkass roommate in college threatened our autistic roommate causing me to become mightily pissed since the threat is what woke me up from my peaceful sleep. I get up stalk towards the rear end in a top hat with a unamused glare and in a cold tone stated that he was not going to do anything and that if I ever heard that if he even attempted to harm the other roommates I would basically turn him into a twitching heap. Pretty much the only Standing Up to Bullies CMOA I have that doesn't resort with me using physical force.
* And this one isn't me but it goes to my younger brother who at age 3 charged out of our house and spear tackled one from a group of bullies that were doing their best to get me into trouble.
* This one makes our family laugh to this day. After getting punched in the stomach this troper's parents went down to the bullies house to tell their parents to keep their son away from me. Now the bullies dad took affront to my parents coming down and started listing off his rank as being a Chief Petty Officer to which my dad responds that he is also and for "the bitch to bring it" and my Mom who was pregnant with my baby sister at the time was getting up in the bullies mother's face. They scared them so much that the bullies dad forced him to leave me alone and the bullies mom became damned scared of my mom, going as far to duck and sneak around a supermarket when she saw my mom.

And by the way, gently caress Jehovah's Witnesses :

quote:

When this Troper spent time at his uncle's, he loves to observe his sword collection, all of then were blunt edged so they were safe and harmless but you couldn't tell that just by looking, One day, a couple of Jehovah's witnesses or something similar showed up on his doorstep, he spent about 20 minutes trying to get them to clear off but they wouldn't budge, seeing at how my uncle was struggling with them, and just a few feet away were essentially a bunch of glorified realistic-looking toy swords, it didn't take me long to grab a (insanely cool looking) Black Dait˘ (A Japanese Longsword) and head towards the door.
Uncle: FECK OFF
Jehovah's witnesses: *Generic religious banter*
Troper; *appears in door frame* Hey (begins to unsheathe sword ) does this look sharp to you?
Jehovah's witnesses: *Already running away*

quote:

This Troper is very Jewish. The first Shabbat after he'd bought his house, his doorbell rang. He answered to find a couple of Mormons or Jehovah's Witnesses or something like that at his door. In attempting to make his point, he greeted them with "Shabbat Shalom, how can I help you?" First question they asked: "Do you believe in G-d?" I look slowly at the Mezuzah affixed to my door, showing off the Kippah (Yamulka) I'm wearing, then slowly down at the Star of David hanging on my highly visible necklace. "No. I believe in the Flying fuckin' Spaghetti Monster. Of course I believe in G-d, you schmuck!" They look at each other, look at me, one says, "Have a blessed day," and quickly got off my property. I never did figure out who they were from, but they haven't come back since. This was in the Summer of 2007.

quote:

At times, it seems This Troper's father is a walking Crowning Moment of Awesome. The incident that springs to mind most immediately is the following. We live near an enclave of Jehovah's Witnesses, and for years they pestered us godless heathens, trying to convert us to their religion (as they are wont to do). My father finally got sick of it, and one day as they came to make another attempt, he was just out of the shower. So my father, a soaking wet, hairy, middle-aged man, greets them at the door. Naked. They have not come back since.

From what I've seen, basically any sort of self aggrandizing tropes (Awesome Moments), or "desirable" traits tropes (Deadpan Snarker) end up showing these people's true character. These are the things they find awesome. These are the things they find witty. They can label themselves however they want, but if you read some of those "snarky comebacks" you get to see just how amazingly witty they really are.

Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn't, so it doesn't.


This one was already posted in the F!S thread, but it deserves repeating because I honestly don't know if there has ever been a more perfect description of the most annoying person on the planet:

quote:

This Troper is a cross between Manic Pixie Dream Girl, Cloudcuckoolander, The Stoic, The Smart Guy and Deadpan Snarker. No, I don't know how it works, either! She wants to major in astrophysics and double minor in theatre and Roman history. Don't ask. I'm a deadpan snarker and stoic inside my own head, although I will do whatever I want outside my head. If that includes jumping up in the middle of class, begging my history teacher if please please please please please can we take a two-minute break because it's snowing for the first time this year and I want to dance in it?! and wearing things like a pink flapper hat, a black-and-grey striped gothy dress, hippie-esque jewelry, and black tights with ballerina shoes (not ballet flats; her roommate's legit toe shoes) to class. On the other hand, I can out-snark everyone I know, and am ridiculously cynical- I have decided that since humanity on the whole is quite boring, I will simply create my own amusement. I will sing- very loudly- while playing center midfield on my field hockey game, simply because it confuses the other team when an opposing player is singing strange songs at the top of her lungs while twirling her sparkly-blue-hockey-tape-decorated field hockey stick. I am known for being somewhat of a pathological white liar; no-one ever knows quite what I had for breakfast, even if they do know my deepest darkest secrets. I also have the highest GPA in my school, which is probably the only reason my teachers tolerate me, seeing as I'm famous for doing papers the period before they're due and never studying for tests (until my grades start dropping, then I actually work). My friends know the line "Hey, I'm bored! C'mon [name]-" * grabs [name's] wrist* "-let's go cause havoc!" is to be feared. It usually entails the like of organising treasure hunts, delivering candy to random classes, or coating someone with sparkly glitter. But the people who think I'm constantly peppy and upbeat are usually quite confused when they hear my cynical rants- which are usually delivered in a peppy, upbeat tone.

This quote is the one that comes to mind for me (and many other people, I would imagine) anytime TroperTales is discussed, I believe it was from the "Crowning Moment of Awesome" trope:

quote:

The second involves a mugger on the NYC subway late at night. The guy pulled a knife on me, and stabbed my right shoulder when I refused to hand over my wallet by saying, "I have no intention of giving you my money. It's bad enough I pay taxes!" I clamped down on the pain long enough to pull the knife out of my shoulder, give the guy a Kubrick Stare over the tops of my glasses, and ask, "Did it ever occur to you that I might be left-handed?" I then drove the knife into his shoulder, broke the blade off, and got off at the next stop to get my shoulder stitched and report the incident to the NYPD.

I know mocking Hetalia has been done into the ground but this page has to be seen to be believed. It's huge.

Feel free to repost stuff from the f!s thread that I haven't put here. The only reason I didn't post it all is because I didn't want to bloat the OP.

Thanks Ironicus. Edited into the OP.

Orthodox Jew. I think they're not allowed to say/write the name of god.
e: f, b

Little bit of detail, for some Jews, particularly more orthodox ones, writing out God is a sort of consecration, and requires special consideration. Like, prayer books that have God written in them have to be treated in a certain way. So a lot of them when writing God on something intended to be thrown away censor out the o. Some consider the internet to be a part of this and censor it, others don't.

That's nothing. The crossover ship page used to have an entry for someone who shipped Chip Cheezum (the guy I LP with) with Susie Summers, a character from Killer7 who is the diembodied head of a preteen. It got edited out.

This is even funnier than all those fandom secrets about you two.

From that page of horror:

--Canada also has the added bonus of being bilingually French and the Mountie uniforms...and America, I mean honestly, have one of the closest international relationships in the world.--

Alas, poor Johnny! I knew him, Mark, a fellow of infinite greetings, of most questionable fancy. He hath pet me on my head a thousand times, and now how abhorr'd in my imagination it is! My dick rises at it.



Here's something from Please Wake Up that starts out but then goes



Wait, what?

I need you to wear this. I need you to wear this all the time. It's office policy.

If you value your faith in the human race, don't ever go to the Troper Tales page for "Brilliant but Lazy". It is literally - I mean literally - the most aggravating collection of smug, vain assholes I have ever experienced in my entire life.

Back when I still had an account on the site and used it, I tried to convince people to tear that page apart just because of how excrutiatingly terrible it made everything look. They kept it up. I think my useless moaning might still be on its discussion page somewhere.

It wasn't always like this, it used to be a reasonably helpful and interesting resource (at least, definitely, a way to kill some time!) that was not infested with terrifying nerds.

edit: Wait, maybe they did take it down! Or maybe I can't navigate the site anymore? Whatever, not taking the time to find out.

From the Troper Tales; Bishonen section. A bishonen is a generic anime pretty boy.

quote:

This Troper would've been one if he wasn't so fat. Now he looks even more like a toddler.

quote:

This troper lives across the hall from a shotacon example. Drives him nuts.

Gonna pause to say that shotacon refers to underage boys. I do believe this man is saying that he lives across from a boy he finds sexually attractive and this causes him frustration. But I hope to God I am wrong.

quote:

For a little bit, Troper had a slight thing for a freshman bishonen (she's a sophomore) who goes to her school. Impossibly tall and thin, big pretty dark eyes (I was never close enough to tell what color), smooth blond, wavy hair that would have made Fai jealous, and as was revealed when he ended up in my gym class, no leg hair. Unfortunately, the crushes I have are... odd. It wasn't so much outright crushing as... subconscious Yaoi Fangirl fantasies that manifested themselves as crushing, because during the period I "liked" him, I was convinced he was gay because of observations and little rumors I caught floating around. Then it turned out he was actually straight and he started dating someone I used to be friends with, and so the "crush" mysteriously vanished. He's still VERY pretty though.

quote:

This gay troper is the epitome of real-life bishonen, tall, skinny, long limbs, large blue eyes, medium-length auburn hair that curls at the end, and feminine-ish features, effeminate mannerisms, the only time I am ever compared to my father is when it's about my height(I'm 6 ft 3.5 in). Yoai fangirls get really exited when they find out I'm gay, and even more exited when they find out I like yaoi.

quote:

When I started Middle School- I had the most passionate crush on a boy. He was the perfect example of bishonen. Although he was shorter than the girls, he had the perfect baby face, long straight, dark brown hair that was a little bit above his shoulders, large almond shaped dark eyes, and slightly tan skin. Later I learned he was Japanese/American/Italian, and due to my new obsession with anime at the time, I fell in love even more with him than I already had. He even liked manga + anime like I did. But, due to my obsession with him, I really scared him off. Recently, I saw him when we went to our schoolwide choir concert, and he didn't look like he was happy to see me, 3 years AFTER the fact.

So a lot of tropers think they're pretty boys, some want these pretty boys to make out with other pretty boys, and some are completely incapable of initiating romantic relationships without looking like stalkers. Nothing new, then. Oh and there are some pedophiles in the wood shed.
