Assumed Trope

Name Space:

Trope
Another type of Playing With A Trope I've seen a few times, where the characters of the story assume a trope to be true. They may be Genre Savvy, Wrong Genre Savvy, whatever, but the trope is assumed to be present.

For example: there's a YKTTW in here called Women Waste Money. In A Dolls House by Henrik Ibsen, it's not known if Nora is indeed a spendthrift--but her husband calls her Squanderbird.

In one story I've seen, a woman expects to be Stood Up because she "knows" it will be a Prank Date--so she doesn't fall for it. She ends up standing her date up.

Three days must pass before this YKTTW is Launchworthy or Discardable
