The Secret Life Of The Backyard Kids

Name Space:
Page Type:
The Secret Life of the Backyard Kids is probably the most famous Backyard Sports Fan Fic that doesn't have anything to do with sports. It was written by a girl known as rose64bud in deviantART, who started publishing it in November 2011 and has yet to complete it.

TSLOTBK is different from most fanfictions written by teenage girls. There's Ho Yay but no slash, and no Mary Sue. It's late 2008, and Jorge Garcia had just outran Pablo Sanchez on all fours, but he doesn't know why. He finds out he has magic powers, and that the reason he outran Pablo was because he was so powerful. He uses his powers to defeat an Alpha Bitch Complete Monster, Tiffany Stevens, all the while, trying to live a normal life. What's more, Achmed starts a budding romance with Samantha Pearce, even though Tiffany is his girlfriend.

Also, in a (probable) life-threatening situation for Jorge, he transforms into a panther to protect himself, and gains Super Strength and Super Speed from the experience. He tries to live a normal life while his shell peeks out, and tries to keep his identity secret from his friends Dmitri, Achmed, Angela, Reese, and Tony. But Tiffany is always after him...

It's on deviantART here.

Why is everyone fall for Jorge?

    The goal of a work page is that it should be understood by someone that hasn't read the work.

    No Zero Context Examples. Don't just list the trope, or the trope and a name. Give at least one full sentence explaining how it applies.

    Avoid Word Cruft like "And How" or "of course!"

    Make sure you are looking up the definitions of all the trope you link and that your use of the trope fits the definition.

    Some of the things you list are subjective tropes. Ho Yay and The Woobie, for example. They belong on the YMMV tab when you create the page.

    Cute Shotaro Boy has been renamed. Don't use the old name, and make sure your usage matches the current trope definition.

    I forgot to mention:

    Type Labels Are Not Examples

    Works Pages Are A Free Launch. And you definitely have enough tropes to fill the page out.

    I do want to bring attention to this awesome fanfic, which is why I made a ykttw for it.

    So if we want to submit a series we post it in YKTTW?

    No no no no, you just make the page for the series. YKTTW is for potential tropes.

    Go forth and make a page for this. Works pages don't need to go through YKTTW. Your examples need a bit more explanation of how Character X invokes Trope Y. It's also worth adding your new work page to Pages Needing Wicks if you don't personally have the time to go and add the work's examples to the relevant trope pages.
