So, you're spending many (way ''too'' many) hours reading TVTropes. You remember exactly every JustForFun/TropesOfLegend and know by heart the whole CanonicalListOfSubtleTropeDistinctions. But still, even if it might [[TvTropesWillRuinYourLife ruin]] your life, TVTropes might also make it better in many areas. Besides, who needs a social life? \\

* Critical thinking! First, because carefully analyzing a work and breaking it down into its component tropes teaches you to carefully watch TV with a judging mind instead of just passively accepting the show. Second, because there's a reason you've became so acquainted with negative tropes, such as AuthorTract or DarthWiki/WallBanger, as well as potentially negative tropes like FauxSymbolism: because they give you a solid base to justify why a show is bad!

** But don't forget that TropesAreNotBad! You can discover fresh tropes that would never have occurred to you and use them in your writing. Or you can take old {{Discredited Trope}}s and [[SubvertedTrope subvert]] or [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruct]] them in exciting new ways.

->According to some, a comprehensive knowledge of TV Tropes (which I won't link to, saving you all [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife time, money and time]]) is a reasonable substitute for a degree in English Lit, years of training in the field of psychoanalysis and, in extreme cases, a medical license.

* Although TV Tropes has its downs, it's still a really great place (sorta like real life). It helps you learn about awesome media and cool tropes to use! It's funny, it's heartwarming, it's awesome, and it's everything you wanted!
