My Name is Trope-tan, and this is my website. For this sort of Opening Narration, we talk about what kind of tropes we're dealing with, and how long we have been doing so. It's a bit like an Expository Theme Tune, but with a monologue instead of lyrics. Leaning on the Fourth Wall is normal, so don't get yourself in a bind if I sound like I'm addressing the audience directly, cause I most likely am. Anyway, that's how I roll and this is where we start the examples.Examples:Film
When I was little girl, I had an imaginary friend, and when I grew up he came back. He's called The Doctor and he comes from somewhere else. He's got a box called the TARDIS that's bigger on the inside and can travel anywhere in time and space. I ran away with him, and we've been running ever since.
That's when I realized that I had to change, so I made a list of everything bad I've ever done and one by one I'm gonna make up for all my mistakes. I'm just trying to be a better person. My Name Is Earl.
I'm Rick Harrison, and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man, and my son, Big Hoss. Everything in here has a story and a price. One thing I've learned after twenty-one years—you never know what is gonna come through that door.
Ever wish you could live your last week over again? Well, my name's Frank B. Parker and I get to all the time. I work for a secret government project experimenting in time travel. When things really get messed up, I'm the guinea pig they send back to fix everything. Catch is, I can only go back seven days.
My name is Sydney Bristow. Seven years ago I was recruited by a secret branch of the CIA called SD-6. I was sworn to secrecy, but I couldn't keep it from my fianc". And when the head of SD-6 found out, he had him killed. That's when I learned the truth: SD-6 is not part of the CIA. I've been working for the very people I thought I was fighting against. So, I went to the only place that could help me take them down. Now I'm a double agent for the CIA, where my handler is a man named Michael Vaughn. Only one other person knows the truth about what I do, another double agent inside SD-6. Someone I hardly know - my father.
This is Carlo's Bakery ... This is the crew, mia famiglia. We're going to take this bakery to the top. They call me Buddy. I'm the boss.

Five hats means that five tropers think it is ready to publish.
You are saying that you think this draft is ready to be published. That means the description is not ambiguous,
it doesn't duplicate an existing trope, there are at least three examples, and the title makes sense.
Is that what you meant to do?
You are saying this draft has a ready-to-publish hat it does not deserve and you are taking it back.
