!!! Tropes associated with TheHarmonVerse

* {{Adorkable}}: Almost all of the [[OriginalCharacter OCs]] in the HarmonVerse have their moments.
** Examples:
*** Jack and his love of Barry Manilow and all around closet geekiness
*** Mitchell in general
*** Michelle and her love of [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Ezio Auditore da Firenze]]
*** Dylan and his love of [[ProfessionalWrestling Mickie James]]
*** Daniel and his open [[BuffySpeak nerdiness]]. He becomes friends with Artie through referencing Firefly, and Gone Rampant has said that Daniel goes to conventions like ComicCon as a cosplayer for the kicks.
*** Ridley and her almost-encyclopediac knowledge of the works of JossWhedon.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Where do we start...
* CodeName: Jack has a tenedancy to give most of his friends and associates nicknames, but has given most of the [[OriginalCharacter OCs]] code names derived from the nursurey rhyme Tinker, Tailor and as an allusion to TinkerTailorSoldierSpy.
* DeadpanSnarker: Quite a few characters (Sue, Jack, Puck, pretty much everyone who's a snarker in Glee itself), but this is Daniel's defining character trait.
** Meta-Fictional: [[WorldOfSnark All of the writers in this universe are this to some degree]].
* DependingOnTheWriter: In the hands of Soulless Warlock and Gone Rampant, the HarmonVerse takes on a more surreal and absurd turn while Cola-Flavoured-Sherbert and ZeroBen's interpretation of it are more realistic...Well, as realistic as a universe centered around ''{{Glee}}'' can be. The character portrayals are pretty consistent, however.
* DestinationDefenestration: Jack and Daniel have both been thrown out of and through windows - and this was before they even got to Sectionals.
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: The end result of pissing Jack off. He also tends to do this a lot himself...as does Daniel.
* DysfunctionalFamily: Despite their rather [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming moments,]] the Harmon family is this in spades. [[spoiler:Michelle]] seems to be a part of one as well. The Mayhew family also pretty much embodies this trope.
* FamilyBusiness: HarmCo is a great example of this trope.
* GenderBender: One for most of the Glee characters in an AlternateUniverse chapter of Pack. Turns out to only be a semi-version, as Soulless Warlock said in a private message that characters like Burt and Carole are still the same.
* HappilyMarried: The older couples tend to have this.
** Kristopher Harmon and Lisa Puckerman. Despite both of them going through bitter divorces years earlier and a 17-year age gap, the two are pretty happy together.
** Dylan's parents, Matthew and Dawn Armstrong. Until [[spoiler: they died]].
** There's no idication that Daniel's parents were unhappily married before [[spoiler: their deaths]].
*** [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Tropers/GoneRampant Gone Rampant]] [[WordOfGod confirmed]] they were happily married.
** Mitchell's parents seem to be reasonably happy.
** Ridley's foster parents, Craig and Erica Robinson, are very happy together. It is also implied that Ridley's mother and stepfather, Elise and Byron, were happily married [[spoiler: though their marriage imploded after Elise was arrested for art forgery.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Jack, Mitchell, Dylan and Daniel to each other - while they all show up in See It My Way, A Different Point Of View, He's Alive/Through Our Eyes and Recap, they're all lesser characters in those works outside of their own.
* HypotheticalCasting: Generally, actors are chosen from Broadway shows or talent competitions - so far, [[NextToNormal Aaron Tveit]]. [[SpringAwakening Jonathan B Wright]], [[SoYouThinkYouCanDance Neil Haskell]], [[TheNewsroom John Gallagher Jr]], Music/ArianaGrande, VanessaHudgens, and NathanFillion have been cast in the series.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Happens quite a bit, [[LoveMartyr Michelle with Mitchell]], [[StalkerWithACrush Daniel with Rachel]], [[AllLoveIsUnrequited Jack with Rachel]], and [[HopelessSuitor Dylan and Brittany]] [[spoiler:until Season Three]].
* ImagineSpot: Happens quite a bit, mostly in the form of flashbacks, but there have been several traditional uses of this trope (As with Glee itself, "Brittany/Britney" contains a good amount of it).
* IfItsYouItsOkay: Played straight (no pun intended) with [[spoiler: Jack and Ethan]] at some point in season three. Though it's more than likely [[spoiler:Jack]] is [[ExperimentedInCollege experimenting]]
* KickTheDog: Happens quite a few times in both TheHarmonVerse canon and non-canon.
* LoveDodecahedron
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Played straight in most part, Jack, Daniel and Dylan are definately not, it's implied that Alex, Ethan and Trevor are not, leaving Mitchell as the odd man out.
* MeetCute: Although they didn't meet that way, Mitchell and Michelle have tendency to collide, trip and fall in each other's prescene.
* MoralityPet
** Kristopher, Rachel, Kurt and later [[spoiler:Puck and Beth]] for Jack
** Mitchell for Quinn
** Rachel and his [[ParentalSubstitute Uncle Joshua]] for Daniel
** Strangely, Jack for Ridley
* OddFriendship: Jack and just about anyone he is friends with that isn't Rachel. He is [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]], [[JerkAss rude]], and [[ComedicSociopath mildly demented]], but he [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold always comes through in the end]].
* RememberTheNewGuy: Averted and possibly subverted. Considering that the whole deal with the glee club is taking in talent, it allows for the new characters to jump into the story at any given interval.
* SelfDeprecation: Most of the OC's have moments where they take shots at themselves, and the authors also do this in the notes.
* ShoutOut: Jack's behaviour, clothing style and personality sometimes mirror Sheldon from TheBigBangTheory, Sterling Archer from {{Archer}}, Pierce from Series/{{Community}} and Barney from Series/HowIMetYourMother.
** Daniel takes visual cues from [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Angel]] and has a deadpan behaviour similar to Sherlock in the BBC 2010 remake.
* SpinOff: Red Vs Glee, which focuses on stories in the RedVsBlue universe.
* StalkerWithACrush: Daniel and, on occassion, Jack and Mitchell. Though this is mostly PlayedForLaughs.
* TheStationsOfTheCanon: There are some divergences from canon with the relationships, but the main arcs are mostly faithful to the show.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Jack and Daniel. Sue and Puck are this as well.
* TrueCompanions: The entire Glee club, whether they be canon or fanon, exemplify this trope.
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Jack and Daniel's primary function.
* WorldOfSnark: It's Glee. Everyone's had a shot at it one time or another.

[[folder: Main Characters]]

!! Jack Harmon (Created by Soulless Warlock)

The eponymous character in the universe and the protagonist of the See It My Way series, which covers the first three seasons of the show. He can best be described as Jesse St. James on steroids and wants nothing more than to become a star of stage and screen. He is talented, but arrogant as hell and is not afraid to tell the members of New Directions what he is thinking at all times.

----
* TheAce: Taken to riduclous extremes
* ActuallyADoombot: A Running Gag in TheHarmonVerse. See below for more.
* AmbiguouslyBi: See ReallyGetsAround for more details. This gains more merit when you realise that Jack has never stated ''why'' he wants to kiss everyone on the [[FanNickname "Gliss List"]]...
* AmbitionIsEvil: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] as Jack's ambitions and ends are not evil, merely a matter of how he achieves them that can be [[WhatTheHellHero questioned]].
* AnythingThatMoves: Implied. Ties into AmbiguouslyBi.
* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: Once stated that after all the chemicals he's been exposed to, Jack is incapable of either getting sick or being poisoned.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Jack has a tendency to become distracted by either the thoughts in his head or by whatever it is that is holding his interest, sometimes at the detriment of those around him.
* AttentionWhore
* BadassNormal
* BadassInANiceSuit: His basic clothes in Seasons 1 and 2 were this, and he has some nice ones for Season 3.
* CampStraight: He's called Rachel Berry with a Five O'Clock shadow for a reason.
* TheCasanova: There's a reason he can get [[AnythingThatMoves anything that moves]]
* ComedicSociopath
* CovertPervert
* CrazyPrepared: He calls himself the master of the elaborate setup for a reason.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DrillSergeantNasty: In Red Vs Glee.
* EthicalSlut: He may [[ReallyGetsAround sleep around]] but he makes it a point not to sleep with people who are in relationships.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Makes it quite clear that he won't prank Quinn while she's pregnant.
* FaceHeelTurn and HeelFaceTurn: Does this little two-step at least once in a story.
* GeniusDitz: He's remarkably intelligent, but his arrogance, paranoia and [[AmbiguousDisorder possible Austim]] make him come off as an idiot.
* HandsomeDevil
* HiddenDepths: There are reasons why he acts certain ways, we just haven't seen them yet.
* HollywoodDateless: Deconstructed in various stories
* InnerMonologue: More like a inner dialogue, but you work with what you got.
* ItsAllAboutMe
* {{Jerkass}}: Guilty as charged.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his [[TheStoic carefully constructed veener]] that makes him come off as [[ItsAllAboutMe selfish]], [[RefugeInAudacity abrasive]], and [[{{Pride}} arrogant]], Jack actually cares about the glee club, its members and it's success [[spoiler:going so far as to quit in order to protect from legal reprocussions if his revenge plan against Vocal Adrenaline failed.]]
* KnightInSourArmour: He complains anything that isn't good for him.
* LargeHam: When he's not [[TheStoic the stoic]]
** The expression JACK HARMON UNDERSTUDIES FOR NO MAN comes to mind.
* LonelyRichKid: Subverted. His pride keeps him from interacting with others despite the fact that he has friends.
* MissingMom: A major arc in Season Two
* NayTheist
* NeverMyFault: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] as Jack will admit to situations being his fault to himself and Rachel, but will never admit to the situation to anyone else. It's part of his [[CharacterDevelopment character arc]] for him to admit to such transgressions to his other friends.
* NonIdleRich: Could become a star based on his family's bankbook alone, but chooses not to.
* NotSoStoic: Happens during Seasons Three a lot
* OriginalCharacter
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero
* ReallyGetsAround: To the point that one of his goals is to kiss every member of the Glee Club before he graduates. [[BiTheWay Regardless]] [[HoYay of gender]]. He's been with more people offscreen then ''Brittany and Santana combined.''
* RunningGag: Several. This includes:
** His declining mental state.
** [[ActuallyADoombot Being a robot.]]
** His skills, which range from [[CombatPragmatist multiple]] [[ImprobableAimingSkills combat]] [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown skills,]] breaking and entering, and in the words of Gone Rampant: [[BadassDriver "Every now and then, Jack needs to get somewhere in a hurry, so he channels Steve McQueen, circa Bullet".]]
** Him giving nicknames to nearly every character in Glee, with the exception of Mr. Schuester and the rest of the adult characters on the show.
** Him being a light sleeper.
** His ability to read minds, which he claims not to have.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Basically the street where he lives

* TheStoic: Sam has said he had "mad Vulcan skills"
* ThirdPersonPerson: Slips into this on occassion.
* UndyingLoyalty: His relationships with Rachel, Kurt and his father exemplify this trope.

* VillainProtagonist: Could be considered this on some level
* VitriolicBestBuds
* WhatTheHellHero: Frequently guilty of these sorts of actions
* YouNeedToGetLaid: [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] as not getting laid is not the reason he's a pain in the ass nor is the fact that he has gotten laid makes him such, he's just that way naturally.

[[folder: Minor Characters]]

!! Kristopher Harmon (Created by SoullessWarlock)
----

* DeadpanSnarker: Jack gets it from him
* MadScientist
* NonIdleRich
* OpenMindedParent
* OriginalCharacter
* OverprotectiveDad: He has a bodyguard follow Jack everywhere he goes
