|Stock Epileptic Trees|
Things that are frequently proposed in fan theories at a rate disproportionate to their occurance in actual works of ficton. Examples:
- They died in the first episode and now they're all in Purgatory! Explicitly Jossed by the creators of LOST, among other writers. There was an infamous (false) rumor that this was how DungeonsAndDragons would end. I am unaware of any series that has actually ended this way.
- Luke, I Am Your Father. A legitimate trope, but fans take it way too far, especially with their tendency to assume that the Big Bad is the father of The Hero even when there is obvious evidence against it.
- All Just a Dream. This arguably reflects either some fans' lack of faith in the writers or their lack of imagination; revealing that the whole story was a dream as a Deus ex Machina has been a Dead Horse Trope for quite a while.
- TimeLord is a form of this unique to this wiki, although it's tongue-in-cheek.
