''The Golden Week'' is a {{Furry Webcomic|s}} created by Douglas Kim ([[http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kimmykun/ Kimmykun]]). The comic features the budding relationship between a lion reporter named Derek and a dalmatian high schooler named Scott. The problem is that Derek is 26 and Scott is 18, and while they are both legal, they still struggle because of stigmas around them.

The website can be found [[http://goldenweekcomic.com/archiveenglish/ here]].

''The Golden Week''

-->-- '''Brian''', ''Series/{{Spaced}}''

A character noted for their obsession with another character. They claim that the motivation for their morally outrageous acts
is a {{Furry Webcomic|s}} created by Douglas Kim ([[http://www.furaffinity.net/user/kimmykun/ Kimmykun]]). The comic features simple wish to gain attention from the budding crush-ee. Alternatively, the obsession may be explained as a misguided desire to "protect" [[note]](which often translates to ''isolate'' or ''smother'')[[/note]] the crush-ee, whether or not the crush-ee wants or needs such "protection". In any case, the more sincere they seem, the [[TermsOfEndangerment creepier they are.]]

Why does this happen? Because LoveMakesYouEvil, and "IfICantHaveYou, No One Will!"

There'll usually be a DoubleStandard at play with this trope. Male stalkers are more likely to be portrayed unsympathetically, and as an actual danger to their object of obsession. [[StalkingIsFunnyIfItIsFemaleAfterMale Female stalkers]], by contrast, are likely to be portrayed sympathetically, and typically portrayed as [[{{Moe}} charming or cute]] (though ''beware'' the WomanScorned!).[[note]]Partly due to perceptions of vulnerability given average differences in physical strength, and partly due to [[AManIsAlwaysEager the assumption that males aren't as picky when it comes to love or sex in the first place]].[[/note]]

!!Related Tropes:
* This can be a minor character who is [[TheDarkSide seduced to evil]] by the TragicDream of being able to get who they want.
* If the stalker manages to score ''because'' he's a stalker, it's because the target believes StalkingIsLove.
* If the stalker is chasing a celebrity, especially one who didn't know them before the stalking began, they're a LoonyFan.
* If the stalker sticks to a "hands-off" approach and simply attempts to spy on their target in explicit situations, they are ThePeepingTom.
* If the stalker wants their target's DNA as much as (if not more than) their love, that's a StalkerWithATestTube.
* Contrast with AbhorrentAdmirer, where a HollywoodHomely or average woman is considered the worst thing in the world simply because she is attracted to the protagonist, even though no stalking takes place. See also AllTakeAndNoGive.
* If a male stalker is particularly WrongGenreSavvy about his role and reception, he's most likely also a PrinceCharmingWannabe or convinced he's a DoggedNiceGuy. Can easily double as a CrazyJealousGuy. A HollywoodRestrainingOrder may be mentioned.
* If the stalker's [[LoveMakesYouCrazy crush makes them go]] AxCrazy at anyone who tries to interfere or even [[IfICantHaveYou the crush-ee]], the stalker is a {{Yandere}}, especially if she's female.
* Compare AND contrast with StalkerWithoutACrush, who can either seem similar to this through the "DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything" approach and/or become this through CharacterDevelopment.
* If the stalker once had a romantic
relationship between a lion reporter named Derek and a dalmatian high schooler named Scott. The problem is that Derek is 26 and Scott is 18, and while they are both legal, they still struggle because of stigmas around them.

This can be a minor character who is [[TheDarkSide seduced to evil]] by the TragicDream of being able to get who they want.

If the stalker manages to score ''because'' he's a stalker, it's because the target believes StalkingIsLove.

If the stalker is chasing a celebrity, especially one who didn't know them before the stalking began, they're a LoonyFan.

If the stalker sticks to a "hands-off" approach and simply attempts to spy on their target in explicit situations, they are ThePeepingTom.

If the stalker wants their target's DNA as much as (if not more than) their love, that's a StalkerWithATestTube.
