* EducationMama This troper's father berated her mother for only caring if this troper was smart, not socially competent. Her mother [[ComebackTomorrow later admitted to this troper]] that her response should've been that he only cares [[BrainlessBeauty what she looks like]] or [[PopularIsDumb how popular she is]].

* {{Tomboy}} Not so much of the plays-sports-and-likes-trucks variety, but of the nerdy gamer variety.
** OneOfTheGuys Most of this troper's friends are male. This was even true as a preschooler, though she went through a phase in school in which she picked up a couple female friends, some of which have stuck around.
** RealWomenNeverWearDresses This troper generally hates them because you can't pull your knees up to your chest without someone getting a PantyShot (unless you wear a SkirtOverSlacks, which this troper never bothers to do). [[KatanasAreJustBetter A kimono is okay]], but [[AwesomeButImpractical not really practical, either]]. Perfume is obnoxious if it sets off allergies. And makeup is just obnoxious, period.
** TomboyAndGirlyGirl Some of this troper's closest female friends are amusingly feminine.
* TomboyishName This troper's online handle is actually derived from her first dog. Said dog was female and, at least later in life, developed the habit of squatting to pee with one leg raised.



* ActingYourIntellectualAge This troper's logical skills have usually been several years ahead of her chronological age, but her emotional and social skills tend to be either at or below her age. This occasionally results in self-amusement when this troper realizes she's going through a "new" psychological stage or life experience that most peers went through some years ago.



* GeniusSlob This troper's room is a mess, and she showers twice a week unless absolutely necessary (those two showers are taken prior to church; if she were an atheist, she'd never bathe). She also likes to rewear the same set of clothes each day between showers because it cuts down on the laundry.



* GibberingGenius Not usually, but if she has a lot to explain or is worried the other person will get bored or interrupt her due to a short attention span, this troper's mind can get ahead of her mouth and she'll end up skipping, transposing, or simply portmanteau-ing words.
* GoodWithNumbers This troper once impressed a fabric cutter by calculating the addition of various parts of a yard in her head (e.g. 7/8 + 3/4 + 3/8 = 2 yards). However, she's only good at very basic math; anything more takes paper or a calculator.
** Her mother is also a fan of math, and was an accountant [[FemaleSuccessIsFamily before she had children]].



* NervesOfSteel Usually [[{{Foil}} played against]] her more emotional mother with grief.



* [[ThatOneGuy That One Girl]] This troper has been known to become this any time the teacher plays a game that involves answering questions. Of particular hilarity was her college nutrition class, where she was made scorekeeper for a game of [[InNameOnly pseudo-Jeopardy]] because she had finished reading the question, all four multiple-choice answers, and hit the buzzer for her team before ''anyone else even finished the question''. The rest of the class just sort of gave up after a few rounds until this troper was forced to be scorekeeper.

The rest of the class just sort of gave up after a few rounds until this troper was forced to be scorekeeper.



* SmartPeoplePlayChess Averted. This troper hates chess because it takes too much thinking to be rightly termed a "game" and is too useless to serve a function aside from [[TheChessmaster good]] [[XanatosSpeedChess metaphors]].



* SuperSpeedReading This troper has never clocked herself, but she's always been fast. It tends to drive other people a little crazy in school.

*** If it's black, he totally stole it from MasiOka; this troper once had a dream with both of them, and naturally, her animus was blond for that segment ([[InsaneTrollLogic because Masi only has one copy of his hair, of course, and they can't ''both'' be growing it at once!]]).
** ShadowArchetype This troper has seen ''two'' manifestations of her Shadow in dreams. The first was an {{Acrofatic}} KnifeNut girl who fought with an [[BFS over-sized kitchen knife]] (though it was average-sized at best for a sword, ''it was a kitchen knife'' and thus huge for its function). The second was a mentally retarded and incredibly rich FatIdiot who had never been denied anything in life, because people felt sorry for him and always did exactly as he wanted. Unfortunately for this troper, he wanted to marry her, and she was apparently the first person ever to not bend over backwards to his will (this resulted in an annoying chase dream).

* DreamPeople: This troper has several. They're usually NoNameGiven.
** [[GirlOfMyDreams Guy Of My Dreams]] There's a guy who repeatedly appears in this troper's dreams who she refers to as her animus for lack of a better title. He's tall and slim, with fair skin and eyes that shift between yellow and grey (which is totally impossible, but [[RealDreamsAreWeirder dreams are like that]]). His hair is either black or blond, depending on mood, but is stable for each individual dream. He's also mellow, quiet, and has a decidedly "safe" aura to him. As far as this troper can tell, he's an amalgam of everything she likes and admires about the male gender, representing what she'd like in the ideal man

** SpiritAdvisor An old man, tall, thin, kind, and grandfatherly. He represents this troper's general unconsciousness and would dispense sagely advice...except that he only knows what this troper already knows. He may have a new interpretation of the information, though.
*** NonHumanSidekick He has a pet hawk (or falcon, whichever) that [[RuleOfCool can hover like a hummingbird]].

* CrypticConversation One of this troper's biggest pet peeves is ambiguity. She most often runs into it at church, in which people ask for prayers "for personal problems" and forgiveness for "bad decisions"...but don't actually spill the juicy beans as to what's going on!
** In case you can't tell, yes, this troper is a nosy sort. It's less about having something to hang over others' heads and more about having all the facts.

* TrademarkFavoriteFood Milk. Oh so much.
** If they weren't expensive/a pain to acquire, sushi and azuki-flavor daifuku mochi might be contenders.
* VitriolicBestBuds Considering that this troper tends to put all her spunk into verbal sparring, many of her relationships are like this. It's usually never extremely vitriolic, but she'll argue if Oreos or M&Ms make the better ice cream topping ''just to have something to argue about'' (for the record, it's M&Ms).
* WhoNeedsEnemies This troper dislikes the saying, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." She prefers "The enemy of my enemy is a potentially interesting person who needs to be investigated," as it's closer to the truth.
* WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent This troper's father wishes she was quiet, demure, and girly. In case you hadn't gathered it from the rest of the page, ''this troper is none of those''.



* IncorruptiblePurePureness As pointed out above, chastity is one subject this troper ''will not'' budge on, for ''any'' reason.
** WhatYouAreInTheDark She's also quite certain that if she were of the mind to, she could get away with quite a bit. She's rather annoyed when people say her parents raised her well, as this seems to tie her morals to them, simultaneously insulting both her own moral fiber and her skills at sneakery!



** Funny story time: they took a personality test that claimed it measured masculinity vs. femininity. Said male friend was labeled "masculine", while this troper was labeled "gender transcendent". ''However'', when comparing the individual ''components'' of masculinity, such as assertiveness, competitiveness, etc., this troper was ''consistently'' higher than her friend. And looking at feminine components, such as empathy, she was the same or ''lower'' than him. YouFailLogicForever, test creators.

* {{Determinator}} This troper's general approach to life as a whole. She greatly disagrees with [=DNR=]s, and has two common quotations to sum up such:
--->"Hey, don't give up yet. Life ain't over 'till you stop breathing, and then [[CPRCleanPrettyReliable there's always CPR]]."
--->"I need a [=DNNR=]: Do Not ''Not'' Resuscitate. I want them to try, and try, and try again, until it's a fool's errand. And then, try one more time, just to be sure."

This troper finds the symbolism of cut flowers more fitting to death than love: you want grief to end, just like a cut flower wilts.

** LeaningOnTheFurniture Sometimes played straight with her own belongings, but usually averted as this troper avoids touching or disturbing anything any more than she has to.



* ForgetsToEat She did this off and on throughout her teens and can still fall victim to it. In particular, lunch is likely to be forgotten because she tends to wake up around noon, such that breakfast is at the traditional "lunch" time and she then eats dinner with her family in the evening, at which point she realizes she completely forgot about that middle meal.

* InnocentlyInsensitive This troper is known to say things that rub people the wrong way. Nine times out of ten, she doesn't really get ''why'' it bugs them. For example: why can't you criticize someone's cooking? If it's bad, shouldn't they be ''told'' it's bad so they'll have incentive to get ''better'', instead of everybody choking down the food and pretending it was delicious so they'll have to repeat the process again?
** JustJokingJustification Likewise, she says things that tend to rub people the wrong way when she ''honestly did'' mean them as jokes.



* NotAMorningPerson This troper likes to get up about noon; anything earlier will likely get you a bleary-eyed "Up? Why, something interesting? No? Sleep then." "Morning" to her is "any time within one to three hours of waking up, whatever time that may be on the clock." She really, ''really'' wonders if she doesn't have [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delayed_sleep_phase_syndrome delayed sleep phase syndrome]] because whether she goes to bed at 3:00 AM or 11:00 PM, she seems to wake up at about the same time: noon. Even if she manages to get up early, she'll be so sleepy she goes back to bed later that day before rousing for her evening activities.
** HeavySleeper Played straight and averted. Played straight with her mother, who woke this troper up all through her school years, and many "mundane" noises: if nothing unusual or interesting is happening (school is not interesting; the building will still be there at noon just as well as it will be at eight), this troper will sleep right through it, even if it's fairly loud (or, if woken, she'll go right back to sleep once determining the noisemaker is boring). Averted, however, in that a certain sense of watchfulness pervades even her sleep, and should a person ''other'' than her mother enter the room, she'll wake up almost immediately.
** {{Sleepyhead}} One of the most annoying things this troper does: falling asleep during the sermon in morning church services. Staying awake in others is less of a task, but this troper is always quite happy if she can stay awake during the morning ones.
* NotBad This troper finds overly-gushing sentiments to be too schmaltzy for everyday life (and even for a lot of special occasions). Even if she's quite pleased, the signs may be subtle, and moreso the closer she is to the person who did a good job.
* PastimesProvePersonality Surprisingly, this troper matches several:
** Drawing - this one, at least, doesn't fit so well, as this troper is neither a soft-spoken sentimentalist nor a loony emo. She does, however, have a surprisingly rich inner world, complete with strange and quirky characters and even some BizarreAlienBiology.
** Computer Games - introverted and darn proud of it. This troper isn't likely to ''actually'' believe she's turned into some sort of game creature, but it's a fun fantasy to entertain (plus, there's no better way to blow off steam than to [[StuffBlowingUp Blow Stuff Up]]).
** Reading - again with the quietness, and this troper actually has been known to be ''capable'' of reading above her grade level, though she often finds that even as an adult, the "young adult" section has a better plot line with more fun and less angst.
* ThePigPen This troper showers about twice a week, before church (possibly more often if she's got a date or job - or if she gets physically dirty from anything other than her own daily sweat). Naturally, she tends to smell a bit (or rather, be told she smells) by the time a shower day rolls around.
** TrashOfTheTitans Her room is...[[{{Understatement}} messy]]. [[BerserkButton And you'd better not touch it.]]
* PoliteVillainsRudeHeroes This troper's general mindset is that you should never trust someone who's being ''too'' polite. Exceptions can be made for Asians, because it tends to be more ingrained in their culture than most Americans. There's still a point where you have to suspect a round of PolitenessJudo may be in play, though...
* RidiculousProcrastinator This troper will put off doing things until the last possible minute. She's been known to pull all-nighters to finish a month-long project that she just started the day before.
* SicklyNeuroticGeek Right down to the allergies. This troper has a personal stash of Zyrtec and Sudophed (the ''real'' pseudoephedrine, not the phenelephrine "[=PE=]" version). She can also discuss medical procedures on the level of some med students, despite not being interested in the medical field.
* TerrifiedOfGerms This troper's father likes to berate her for this one (her brother joins in on it if he's feeling rather cranky that day). This troper would like to remind him that there are plenty of alternatives to touching other people in greeting.
** As an aside, bacteria [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorum_sensing may actually be capable of "plotting"]] quite well for unicellular microorganisms, waiting to strike until there's enough of them to overwhelm the immune system. Sneaky little evil boogers!



** PetTheDog Likewise. For all her crabbiness at her own species, this troper can be usually nice to the furry sort.



** BlackAndWhiteBeauty For [[FromACertainPointOfView a certain value of "beauty"]], at least.



* ThePigPen This troper showers about twice a week, before church (possibly more often if she's got a date or job - or if she gets physically dirty from anything other than her own daily sweat). Naturally, she tends to smell a bit (or rather, be told she smells) by the time a shower day rolls around.

* ThePigPen PlainJane Type two.
** HollywoodHomely
This troper showers likes to joke about twice being able to play the ugly girl in a week, before church (possibly more often if she's got a date show or job - or if she gets physically dirty from anything other than movie by just forgetting her own daily sweat).

*** MoodSwinger Usually brought on by the hormones. You like your head attached, yes? Don't bug this troper when she's [=PMS=]ing.

* CrazyCatLady This troper has sometimes joked that she would turn into this, if it weren't for the fact that she's discovered that she likes having a deep, personal relationship to her pets, and this gets more and more difficult the higher the number gets. One is good, two is fine, five is pushing it, and over ten is just impossible.



[[folder:CharacterizationTropes]]
* AfraidOfNeedles Due to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperalgesia hyperalgesia]], which means that what others describe as a tiny prick feels like a butcher knife to her (she also has a generalized fear of ''any'' sharp object being pointed at her, but has no issues with the ''sight'' of a sharp object such as TV sword fights). Also, fear (or any strong emotion) tends to set all her senses on edge, making the feeling ''even stronger''.
* AmbiguouslyAutistic This troper's mother believes she may have a form of Asperger's, which explains why she is NotGoodWithPeople. Her father uses it as an insult and claims "The autism's kicking in" when she violates social protocol.
* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder This troper is known to start things without finishing them. In school, she forced herself to at least finish a page of her sketchbook before moving on; she has never made that rule for other projects because she knows she'd never ''start'' anything for fear of having to actually ''finish it''. As a result, her hard drive is littered with little projects that have never seen the light of day.
* BerserkButton This troper has a couple:
** HatesBeingTouched With a vengeance. This troper can count on one hand the number of people she'll enjoy or even ''tolerate'' physical contact with, at least in part due to her nerves resending the "You've been touched" message repeatedly long after the person's hand has left.
*** HandOff Offering a handshake usually gets you a blank stare. Depending on how close you are, this troper may step or even jump back if she feels her personal space is being invaded. She's also been known to sit down, where ever she may be at the moment, to avoid a hug.
* MamaBear You do not mess with this troper's dogs. ''Ever''.
** {{Protectorate}} By extension, you do not mess with ''other'' dogs. Nor do you mess with her friends.
** MostAnnoyingSound Babies and vacuum cleaners. Also, did you know that a fork or knife slipping on the plate sounds ''just like'' NailsOnABlackboard? And people wonder why this troper prefers biting and chewing her meat to cutting it...or just softer meat. Fish falls apart much easier than pork.
** RoyalWe Used by this troper's father in a most condescending manner. ''She absolutely hates the trope as a result.''
* {{Bookworm}}
* CreatureOfHabit Despite her quirky, off-the-wall commentary, this troper's physical existence is actually quite predictable. She'd be perfectly content to spend all her time at home, in front of the computer, TV, or game system, and consider a trip to the grocery store to read ingredient labels (and make fun of the dumb ones) "adventurous".
* CulturalRebel Your so-called [[BrattyTeenageDaughter "average" American girl]] is [[ExtraversionTropes outgoing]], [[MsFanservice flirty]], [[IBrokeANail image-obcessed]] and [[AllWomenLoveShoes shoe-loving]], [[HormoneAddledTeenager a little bit boy-crazy]], and [[MyBiologicalClockIsTicking wants to have a baby as soon as possible]]. This troper finds that "average" American girl tollerable at best, annoyingly shallow and vapid at worst.
* DaddysGirl Averted, and averted hard. This troper does not get along with her father and describes their relationship more as angry tenement neighbors than family: someone you see in the hallway and avoid talking to.
* DoesNotKnowHowToSayThanks Mostly because it tends to be very awkward. She also Does Not Know How To Accept Thanks.
* DontCallMeSir This troper generally dislikes terms of deference, with the assumption that if you ''need'' to use them, then the person in question is too scary for you to bother talking to in the first place. She does occasionally use "Mister or Miss First Name" (always "Miss", never "Missus", even if the woman is married) for professors or parents of her similarly-grown friends, but her response is always "Yeah" or "Uh-huh", not "Yes ma'am/sir".
* DontYouDarePityMe This troper dislikes being seen as emotionally weak, and thus dislikes pity as well. She especially hates people who say "Sorry" in response to a death that they could do ''nothing'' to prevent. "Sorry" is a word of appology, of taking responsibility for a wrong; it should not be used to mean "It can't be helped, but I wish bad things didn't happen to nice people like you."
* ForgetsToEat She did this off and on throughout her teens and can still fall victim to it. In particular, lunch is likely to be forgotten because she tends to wake up around noon, such that breakfast is at the traditional "lunch" time and she then eats dinner with her family in the evening, at which point she realizes she completely forgot about that middle meal.
* LazyBum If she could, this troper wouldn't work a day in her life (she finds the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cowbird mother cowbird]] to be quite a clever critter, even if she doesn't get any cards in May). But since she finds [[GoldDigger marrying for money]] [[MarryForLove instead of love]] ''incredibly'' distasteful, isn't foolish enough to waste her money on lotto tickets, and doesn't have any rich relatives, she's decided instead to just find a job that's actually somewhat enjoyable.
[[/folder]]



** SourPrudes This troper is rather disgusted with those who are loose with their morals and pants: not only are they setting themselves up for trouble, but they make it more difficult to find a male who is willing to wait for the honeymoon (and dang near ''impossible'' to find one who's [[AManIsNotAVirgin been waiting all his life]]).

*EncyclopedicKnowledge This troper is known for being a fountain of useless (though usually interesting or at least unusual, and sometimes even useful) facts.



* HatesBeingTouched With a vengeance. This troper can count on one hand the number of people she'll enjoy or even ''tolerate'' physical contact with, at least in part due to her nerves resending the "You've been touched" message repeatedly long after the person's hand has left.

Naturally cause for plenty of friction, as her father [[IJustWantToBeNormal wants to be normal normal]] [[WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent and have his family appear as normal as possible]], and this troper...[[{{Understatement}} doesn't]].

** OneOfTheGuys Most of this troper's friends are male. This was even true as a preschooler, though she went through a phase in school in which she picked up a couple female friends, some of which have stuck around.
