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 Doll's 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.
