One of the main reasons why I like TV Tropes so much is because of my love of stories. I love stories in any medium, and in any genre, so long as they're done well. It matters much less to me whether or not a story has a happy or a sad ending, or what the subject matter is, or whether the characters are even likeable, so long as it's well done. Maybe it makes me a bit of a story connoisseur... there are some stories I absolutely didn't enjoy for varying reasons, while admitting wholeheartedly that they were well done and that it was specifically because of my own hang-ups that I didn't like them. TheSorrowsOfYoungWerther is probably the best example. I absolutely loathe Werther as a character, which makes the whole things a pain to read... but it's really well-written, with good characterization and description, and a decent plot. I'm the same way with {{Fargo}}, for the most part, and a lot of other works. Let it not be said that I can't appreciate quality.

[[FavoriteTrope Favorite Tropes]]: I generally appreciate these tropes a lot when done right, though none of them should be used in just any situation. A lot of them are favorites due to aligning well with my personal sensibilities. I'm also more likely to play these straight in my own stories.

* My taste in music is hard to pin down entirely, but can probably best be described as having two facets. The primary facet is for "orchestral" music, along the lines or classical and instrumental music, opera and ballet music, and especially film/game/show scores. The secondary facet is generally more modern, focusing mostly on classic and some contemporary rock, and mostly on the softer end of the scale. One of the only things that don't neatly fit into either of the categories are musical scores, which can probably be lumped into scores in general. If I have a favorite musical genre, it is "scores"... if that counts as a genre.

Aside from that... well, occasionally I'll put up examples, but mostly I just correct grammar.
