And yeah, I've completed NaNoWriMo in 2010, with a TropeOverdosed book about a rescue from an enemy organization that succeeds, but incurs their wrath. It ends with a BolivianArmyEnding.



%%You should really read through the Trope List. It took me a weekend to scour through TroperTales to find most of these tropes.

to:

%%You should really read through the Trope List. It took me a weekend to scour through TroperTales to find most of these tropes.
List.



* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: Justified, because this is a clandestine organization based off the SCPFoundation. They have created fusion reactors, weapons capable of manipulating gravity, robbing all the kinetic energy from a target, and have particle accelerators capable of generating a kilogram of antimatter every week, and can successfully store it.



* AFatherToHisMen: Major Andrew, despite being one of the enemies, treats his men extremely well. When the other antagonists betray him, he decides to side with the protagonists instead, which isn't so difficult since he's ex-colleagues with Treble.
* AIisACrapshoot: Zigzagged. On one hand, all four supercomputers are shown to have gained sentience, and they are more than capable of destroying the world. Three of them, being created and raised by Graves, are responsible to stay with him and, as long as he stays loyal, and not turn into an OmnicidalManiac, they won't. The last one is kept in check by the rest.
* AllCarsArePintos: Averted. Nobody buys crappy cars. The only times cars explode in a fireball is when they're filled with military explosives.



* AnyoneCanDie:
** A whole lot of mooks die. Just when you thought nobody named would die, a guy seen in a flashback as a date rapist comes back as a soldier and tries to kill one of the main character with a shaped nuclear charge. His tank is promptly bounced around for an unspecified length of time. Once he climbs out to escape, he is shot in the head with an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolaser electrolaser]] casually.
** As for important characters, the enemy kills off one of the few people who can pull off a counterattack, General Chekhov with a fuel-air bomb. The main characters haven't found out yet.



* BadassBoast: Everything is possible. The impossible just takes longer.

to:

* BadassBoast: Everything is possible. The impossible just takes longer.In NaNoWriMo 2010, all the main characters, and a few side characters got their badass boasts. Most were immediately followed by the listener asking how long it took them to think of it.



* BeachEpisode: Treble lamented that they lost the chance to have a BeachEpisode in NaNoWriMo 2010, after they blew up two robots (modeled after NGE's Israfel) with 43 megatons of antimatter.
* BFG: Half the weapons seen are this. The other half are BFSes.



* BolivianArmyEnding: At the end of NaNoWriMo 2010, the base is surrounded by an enemy fleet. All communications with the outside world has been jammed, and their only General is dead.



* CallingTheirAttacks: The giant robot in the story connected with the HyperspaceArsenal, summoned a humongous drill, and called out "Giga! Drill! Breaker!"



* CaughtTheHeartOnHisSleeve: Yamato successfully does it to Treble. She makes a note to thank the resident LovableSexManiac, who happens to be female.



* ChunkySalsaRule: In NaNoWriMo 2010, Treble killed Aizen with a bolt of electricity to his head, that turned it into something resembling chunky salsa.



* ConversationalTroping: Chekhov would bring up tropes, Treble would deconstruct them, and they would reconstruct them. Smith would listen in on them, make notes, and upload them on their universe's version of TvTropes.
* CoolShades: Treble and Yamato have them. Treble's shades are actually Gendo's shades.



* CrazyAwesome: In 2010's NaNoWriMo, one of the main characters, Graves, has access to the resident supercomputers. He turns his HyperspaceArsenal into a humongous weapons storage facility, with almost every weapon from every genre in human-sized and Eva-sized. The jury's out on whether [[AwesomeMoments his most awesome moment was when he built a giant mecha from construction vehicles, or when he used his Hyperspace Arsenal to rip the kidneys out of five mooks to diffuse an one-sided]] MexicanStandoff.



* DualWielding: Dual telescopic batons + Two BadassNormal out for revenge + Lots of enemy Mooks + ConservationOfNinjutsu = Awesome ShoutOut to [[{{FanFic/ptitle0028gzjm}} Kyon: Big Damn Hero]] .

to:

* DressedToKill: Invoked, discussed, then subverted in a few thousand words during NaNoWriMo 2010. Inspired me into making the PlayingWith page for this trope.
* DualWielding: Dual telescopic batons + Two BadassNormal out for revenge BadassNormals + Lots of enemy Mooks + ConservationOfNinjutsu = Awesome ShoutOut to [[{{FanFic/ptitle0028gzjm}} Kyon: Big Damn Hero]] .Hero]].
* DynamicEntry: Subverted in NaNoWriMo 2010. Treble and Yamato walk into an enemy's room brazenly, and the only thing that stops them from shooting is their icy glares, and a few preparations made beforehand. Then they begin their CurbStompBattle, as mentioned above in DualWielding.



* FlatWhat: Very often in NaNoWriMo 2010, because characters take turns being the OnlySaneMan.



** Further explored in NaNoWriMo 2010, where the General is revealed to be a chess grandmaster, and built an airtight identity for himself in his spare time.



* GodwinsLaw: Treble and Chekhov start arguing after Treble compares Chekhov's porn to a certain novel-writing competition. It soon degenerates into an argument on who is more like Hitler.
* GroinAttack: Often invoked in NaNoWriMo 2010, because nobody cares for honorable fighting.
* GunsAkimbo: In NaNoWriMo 2010, Yamato accuses Treble being Type 2 whenever he can. He admits it, but explains he does it Type 1 instead.



* HollywoodHacking: Subverted. Graves can type that fast, because his MacGuffin grants him skill in his bodies, to counteract the fact that if he couldn't control it properly, he'd die much faster. Smith duly notes that Graves would make an excellent Yuki Nagato.



* HuskyRusskie: The General, from my stories is one. He isn't named Ivan, Vladimir, Yuri, Dmitri, or Boris though.

to:

* HyperspaceArsenal: Reconstructed into a real pocket dimension, filled with things including a continent-sized fusion reactor to power Graves's creations, science-fiction weapons that doubles as shoutouts and it can be used as a weapon or communication device. For example, when the enemy started using ultra-wideband radar to jam communications, Graves switched to using his HyperspaceArsenal as one by opening two portals for himself and his supercomputers.
* HuskyRusskie: The General, General Chekhov, from my stories is one. He isn't named Ivan, Vladimir, Yuri, Dmitri, or Boris though.



* IGotThis: Subverted. Aizen tries to defend Andrew after he meets Treble. With a shaped nuclear charge. Graves sends the charge into outer space, then slams the tank on the ground repeatedly, stopping a thousand words later, or about a minute later, or sixty hits later.



* KillItWithFire: After an unfortunate incident during a Biology practical, where I accidentally destroyed a Bunsen burner with ethanol, I am not allowed to handle gas taps or bunsen burners. Like that ever stopped a pyromaniac...

** In NaNoWriMo 2010, the enemy summoned Israfel, which got promptly destroyed by antimatter bombs. When it rebuilt itself, a fuel-air bomb was used. It didn't die, but it was weakened considerably.



* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: After Graves and Smith looked through Chekhov's internet history, they discover a video involving squids. They decide to never speak of that again.



* MagnificentBastard[=/=]ManipulativeBastard: Yamato. The whole plot started because she wanted to meet with Treble's ex-colleague in the enemy organization. It just went OffTheRails, with a BolivianArmyEnding, but she'd find a way to factor that into her plans. Somehow.
* MediumAwareness: Treble often speculates that he, and the other main characters are pawns in a story. He's correct, but the characters often question him when they end up in a sticky situation.
* MoreDakka: When it's just you and a few other people facing off a real army, you'd tend to invoke this trope sooner or later. Played straight in NaNoWriMo 2010.



* NoDoubtTheYearsHaveChangedMe: Said by Soryu, in an attempt to get Treble to remember him. Once he does, the plot starts rolling.



* PityTheKidnapper: Soryu, after being kidnapped, proceeds to piss off the kidnappers by rambling, and talking non-stop. He's soon rescued, and somehow knocks out everybody. One of them had a broken kneecap, while another guard had all his fingernails removed.



* RuleOfCool: In the aforementioned MUN, the Crisis Room threw crap at the LTTE, at one point sending a genocidal coalition and decimating our troops between the second and third day. We sent numerous directives, all plainly suicidal and stupid, including a kamikaze bombing run (where all 60 planes crashed into each other simultaneously, detonating all the bombs on board, and creating a spectacular explosion that the Sri Lankan government enjoyed tremendously), 20,000 child suicide bombers (they succeeded, only to have the UN Peacekeepers we called to handle to genocide to come in right in the middle of the fiasco) and OneHundredAndEight assassination attempts against the only minister who actually did anything in the Sri Lankan cabinet, the Minister of Foriegn Affairs.

**
In NaNoWriMo 2010, while everything was extremely realistic, excluding the science fiction weapons, one incident stood out. In an attempt to invoke DramaticEntry, Treble, and his ex-colleague, Soryu, detonated charges in the parking lot, culminating in an "ingeniously rigged small scale implosion-type nuclear fusion charge". It was immediately lampshaded, after the cries of pain due to the intense light, because it did not kill them from the overpressure, nor the radiation.

* ShoutOut: The more, the merrier. One of the things I want is to create a series, where all the characters are Expies from different animes, and they have more shoutouts than LuckyStar.

to:

* ShownTheirWork: NaNoWriMo 2010 is filled with accurate calculations, but they've been fudged a little, because we don't need to know how far something flew, right down the fourth decimal point. Also, the sole K-ON shout out was a perfect description of Ritsu's main drum set, a yellow Rick Marotta Signature Yamaha Hipgig. And a set of Avedis Zildjian cymbals.

* TemptingFate: Every other event in the MUN is, or borders on TemptingFate.

to:

* TemptingFate: TakeThat: Treble compares the plot of the porn Chekhov watches to [[NaNoWriMo a 50,000 word novel churned out in thirty days]].
* {{Technobabble}}: Invoked in NaNoWriMo 2010. Used only in a scene, where Graves weaponizes it, and knocks out Smith for fun. As it turns out, knocking him out made it impossible for them to know about the invasion fleet twenty kilometers behind them.
* TemptingFate:
**

** Often in NaNoWriMo 2010. Lampshaded all the time too, with various references to Fate being a temperamental woman who screams at characters and points the middle finger at them.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWorkBetterWithBullets: Justified. Graves held up his hands, opened portals in their magazines, and began dumping them on the floor. When the soldiers didn't surrender, he followed up on his threat, and began dumping their kidneys on the floor.


Added DiffLines:

* ToThePain: After Aizen was introduced as a date rapist, he meets Treble, Chekhov and Graves. Who proceed to make him piss in his pants from pure terror. Then he gets three tranquilizer darts to the neck. What makes this different from HumiliationConga is that Aizen is tortured slowly by Soryu, with the [[SpectacledSadist sadistic geek]] explaining whatever he does. All the reader sees is Soryu removing all of Aizen's fingernails with pliers for the first three, and a hammer and iron wedges for the remaining seven. The doctor also uses a sledgehammer to his kneecaps. The last we see of it was Soryu gagging Aizen, then smiling, saying that he would now begin the true torture.


Added DiffLines:

* UriahGambit: In the enemy organization of NaNoWriMo 2010, not following orders can lead to this.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatMeasureIsAMook: Graves muses about that in NaNoWriMo 2010 and it sounds awfully like the page introduction. He decides that it doesn't matter.


Added DiffLines:

* WhoWantsToLiveForever[=/=]LivingForeverIsAwesome: Graves often muses on those two topics, being a mortal trapped in a MacGuffin that uploads his mind into any body, organic or electronic on contact. He tends not to show it, but is seen at the start wishing for his death. At the end of the NaNoWriMo 2010 novel, he gave up, and decided that he should live, at least to make sure that his organization would survive as long as possible.


Added DiffLines:

* XanatosSpeedChess: Yamato plays a mean game of XanatosSpeedChess.


Added DiffLines:

* ZettaiRyouiki: Yamato once pulled this off, and her uncle, Treble, had trouble tearing his eyes off her.
