[[{{Meta}} Tropes about tropes]]. It is easy to get this confused with a category for tropes that share some commonality or are tropes that are particularly universal. That's not what this is about. It is about how tropes [[TropeMakers come into existence]], live, mutate, [[EvolvingTrope evolve]], and [[ForgottenTrope die]].
