Tropes may be brand new but seem trite and hackneyed; they may be thousands of years old but seem fresh and new. [[TropesAreTools They are not bad, they are not good;]] they are simply tools that a creator of a work of art uses to express their ideas to the audience.

A {{trope}} is a storytelling device or convention, a shortcut for describing situations the storyteller can reasonably assume the audience will recognize. Tropes are the means by which a story is told by anyone who has a story to tell. We collect them, for the fun involved.

Tropes may be brand new but seem trite and hackneyed; they may be thousands of years old but seem fresh and new. [[TropesAreTools They are not bad, they are not good;]] they are simply tools that a creator of a work of art uses to express their ideas to the audience.

Here is a list of indexes, split into conceptual groups. At the bottom of each trope page you will find a convenient '''Next''' or '''Previous''' link that allows browsing alphabetically. You may, however, want to take along a supply of NarniaTime.
