The Heart Thingy YKTTW Discussion
|The Heart Thingy|
A love trope. Perhaps this Needs a Better Title. It's currently titled in reference to a Doonesbury strip (see below). In manga, anime, comic strips and comic books, characters who are in love have little hearts materialize around their heads. For added effect or irony, said hearts may actually materialize and drop around in the character's wake like so much litter.
