: Yeah, I'll change the name to Hump or Die
. The vulgarity is just distracting and infantile.
: Sorry for the vulgarity :( Hump or Die
doesn't cover it well enough. I'm not sure, what about Mate or Die
? Not vulgar but covers the fact the point is to have sex better.
: Okay, I'll run it. Not prudes, but it is best to save the punchiest words for the punchiest uses.;-)
: Yeah, it's a bad idea to use things like that in trope titles. It lowers the tone of the website and reduces the impact when we want to use an obscenity for a better reason.
Man Called True
: Personally, I like "Mate or Die" best of the three names - if only because I keep saying it in the same tone of voice as that "Skate or die!" announcement from 720
BT The P
: I'd like to point out that Screw Or Die rhymes nicely with Do or Die. Just saying. Also, this is quite possibly the second-lamest fanfic plot since Thag Sue scribbled the first Mammoth/Mastodon pairing on a cave wall.
: Yeah, I second Screw Or Die
. It's so obvious that I first thought it was the "offensive" original name that got changed before I checked the page history.
: Eh...oops. Anyway: Naming issue aside, isn't this just Deus Sex Machina
: It's a subtrope of it; the question is wether or not it's common enough to merit its own entry.
: Find a case where someone chooses "die", and it'll stand on its own. :)
