[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=000000000000000000000c5d&page=2079#51961 There I am]].

I am an American Troper (male), hailing specifically from the State of Wisconsin. I am an older teenager, entering my third year of high school. [[BreadEggsMilkSquick I may or may not be an Evil Genius]].

I, as one may be able to tell from my handle, wish to join my nation's military. For those who don't live State-side, "USAF" stands for United States Air Force. I can't really be bothered to give a list of things I like here... so I won't. I do work on original fiction, and I am a former fanfiction writer. For those who want to know more about my original work (I pity you), go to my [[http://usaf713.deviantart.com/ deviantART page]].

I ''used to'' write for [=FanFiction.net=], but I gave up on it after realizing I didn't have enough time to commit to it, my real world obligations, and my original fiction. I also didn't feel that subjecting my readers (as few as they were) to constant ScheduleSlip was right, and most of the stories I had going or in my head weren't particularly good anyhow (I'm simply not cut out for fanfiction, really).

If one would, for whatever reason, want to reach me, one could usually find me on the OTC or, as of recently, Writer's Block forums here on the wiki. I occasionally visit Worldbuilding and Yack Fest, too, although any of the other forums and you can't really even rely on me being a lurker.

[[TheUglyBarnacle I present to you the greatest story ever told, and the greatest trope page ever written.]]

[[folder: Catch Phrases]]
!!! {{Catch Phrase}}s:

* "Bleh..." (followed by an opinion that is A. Morally dubious, B. Political FlameBait, or C. Playing Devil's Advocate).
* "Right..." (in reaction to something I seriously doubt).
* "[[FlatWhat Lol, wut?]]" (in reaction to something I am generally led to believe is BlatantLies, or which is incredibly insulting in a way that would seem to invoke PoesLaw or HanlonsRazor to me).
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hW7F0SZLiJc Music for the mood...]]" ([[CaptainObvious potholed to a YouTube link appropriate to the mood, naturally]])
* [[HypocriticalHumor Christ(!)]] (followed by some indignant/mock surprise remark).
* "...AndThatWouldBeWrong..." (immediately following something that is incredibly morally dubious and/or flat out wrong).
* "The end." (Immediately following some situation written as a short, BeigeProse story. Potholed to HappyEnding, DownerEnding, or BittersweetEnding, as necessary).
* "Just because you can, doesn't mean you ''should''."
* "[Insert trust/throwing/can't throw government joke here]" (The original format was "I trust government as far as I can throw it. [[CaptainObvious And I can't throw government]]." But that's rather verbose, so... this one will probably vary every time I type it._
* More will be added as I notice them. Tropers are free to add to this list, too, if they know of one I use a lot that isn't already here.

[[folder: Personal Tropes]]
!!!This Troper provides examples of:
* ArmchairMilitary: Engages in the second aspect of this trope often.
* BerserkButton: Now comes in list form!
** Slavery.
** Claiming that slavery wasn't the primary cause for the AmericanCivilWar.
** America's role in general during the ColdWar. Specifically, I didn't like it.
** US Foreign Policy... sucks...
** Animals rights and the idea of abolishing pet ownership.
** [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Rape]].
** American Exceptionalism/Imperialism; Anti-Americanism. I hate both.
** Hyphenated-Americanism. You're American first, if you're a citizen of this country.
** Libertarianism and violent revolution.
** PoliticallyCorrectHistory.
** Israel. Specifically, the circumstances of its founding, the US's relationship with it, and it's current situation regarding human rights and its neighbors in the Middle East.
** 9/11 ('''especially''' jokes about 9/11).
* BornInTheWrongCentury: Actually, I was born in the right century, but not in the right decade. I should have been born somewhere around 1921-25, so that I could fight in WorldWarTwo.
* BrilliantButLazy: "Brilliant" being subjective. [[TakeThatMe This is also the reason I'm destined to never accomplish much in life]].
* CharacterAlignment: Varies between Neutral Good, Lawful Neutral, and Neutral.
* CloudCuckooLander: I can often come across as this, when I'm not [[DeadpanSnarker deadpanning]].
* CreatorBreakdown
* CulturalCringe: Sometimes. I will still vehemently defend my country's place in the world if I have a leg to stand on, however.
* DeadpanSnarker: Though it's usually not very funny, since I'm not much good at comedy in general.
* {{Eagleland}}: My place of origin.
* FridgeBrilliance: Has a strange habit of writing a HandWave, then finding out it actually has a basis in reality. Some examples include:
** Writing that the Grim Reaper has a scythe which can morph into a sword, merely so he would be able to actually fight with it. Then finding out that folklore says that he would appear to peasants with a scythe and royalty with a sword.
** Writing that a {{Steampunk}} race fuels their fusion power with water, then finding out that water actually contains usable fuel for fusion power.
* GenreDeconstruction: My primary writing form.
* GoldenMeanFallacy: My entire political ideology can come across as this.
* GrammarNazi: Often PlayedForLaughs on my part. This trait is {{Flanderized}} on the Internet...
* HanlonsRazor: ...is your friend. See HumansAreMorons.
* HumansAreBastards: I do not subscribe to this view. However...
* HumansAreMorons: ...I do often believe that this is true.
* KnightInSourArmor
* LiteralMinded: Sometimes. Likes to use this as a counter-argument style, as well.
* MisplacedNationalism: Sometimes. It tends to come up despite my best efforts, and I end up regretting it later, usually...
* MoralDissonance: Between my stance on violence and patriotic duty.
* MyCountryRightOrWrong
* MyersBriggs: '''ENFP'''
* NayTheist: A variant. I ''believe'' there is a god, but I also think we couldn't prove it either way. If we ever do prove it, then I certainly wouldn't worship any god that created humans, because, well, as far as I can see, said god has been doing a pretty poor job...
* NightmareFetishist: My first reaction upon seeing [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]]: "Oh, that's so ''awesome''!" Second reaction: "Shiiiit, I'm not sleeping tonight."
* NoIndoorVoice: Very, painfully true.
* NonSequitur: Applied often and without restraint.
* OlderThanTheyLook: If I shave, anyhow. When I do, I look about 12.
* OpinionMyopia: I get hit particularly hard by this.
* PatrioticFervor: Depends on my mood.
* PingPongNaivete
* RaisedCatholic: But no longer a practicing member.
* ReluctantWarrior: I don't like war or violence. However, I love my country. Therefore, I am joining my nation's military.
* RousseauWasRight: Firmly believes so. Or rather, used to firmly believe so. I believe people are born as a "blank slate," but with no moral predisposition. Morality, in my opinion, is a product of environment, not some inherent trait.
* SingleIssueWonk: '''Capital Punishment'''.
** Also, the copyright laws.
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: An idealist, albeit a profoundly pessimistic one.
* SpeculativeFiction: About the only thing I do.
* TheGodsMustBeLazy: As far as I can determine.
* TheLinus
* WallOfText: I can write really long forum posts if I want. It bothers some people, apparently...
* WideEyedIdealist: Formerly.
