[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=nydxi5bwikla5klf8ykx4scj&page=221#5503 We Are Our Author Avatars]] is a SpinOff of Roleplay/WeAreOurAvatars, where players play their Author Avatars. The name is now known as "Across Universes". Likewise with the Discussion and Sign-Up Sheet as well.

The narrative is broken up into universes which feature the same characters but playing out an appropriate role for their universe. Occasionally the perspective shifts to another AlternateUniverse. The themes so far.

* Normalverse: a group of old friends all end up on a previously deserted island. Everyone knows eachother but they're not sure how.
* Fantasyverse: A village is destroyed and all the members are forced to flee. They quest to find a new home and make profit after their adventures.
* Neotokyoverse: A city centuries into the future. Technology had greatly advanced and high tech deliverymen called Railers complete missions throughout the city, while Soul Hacker's investigate paranormal activity.
* Superheroverse: A city filled with crime superheroes and supervillains. Both the police and the superpowerd vigilantes work to combat the [[CardboardPrison constantly escaping]] criminal underground.
* Pokeverse: In the setting of the {{Pokemon}} games, specifically Kanto. A mysterious Team Universe is arriving throughout the region, with unclear goals but dangerous tactics. But the Pokemon world still runs as usual despite all this.
* Pirateverse: Captain Beat and her crewmates are currently travelling the world. They stop in the port town of San Jorge for a raid only to meet complications by the Navy. Turns into a hunt for PlotCoupons held by [[OurMonstersAreDifferent a different kind of monster.]]
* Christmasverse: Happy holidays. A world where all the Winter holidays interact.
* Greekverse: AncientGrome. The God's play with mortals. Sending them on quest to prove themselves worthy.
* Futureverse: The gang's part of a ''Franchise/StarTrek''-like organization which keeps the peace.
* Wildwestverse: ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Vigilantes, Outlaws, and Sheriffs, oh my!
* Noirverse: Gangs, Serial Killers, and Dectectives are the norm.
* Storybookverse: Various characters from stories of old interact and have adventures.
* Steampunkverse: Lots of steam, lack of technology, and other various things.
* Horrorverse: MonsterMash, with a side of suspense!
* Spyrverse: A dark and crazy villain tries to cause trouble, while spies with gadgets are in a race against eachother to save the world.

The first three arcs has Tropers/SukeSho (now Tropers/{{Saturn}}) as the GameMaster but the position was officially abdicated to Tropers/RhymeBeat, then recently , the GameMaster position has changed to positions and now officialy belongs to Tropers/RhymeBeat, Tropers/{{Imca}} and Tropers/ShiningKnight. Tropers/RevolverZen was a previous GM but he quit the RP.

The game is currently in limbo.

* QuicksandBox: Some players left due to feeling that there was too much freedom, to the point there is no way to ''know what to do''

** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] constantly by 'Nix via his thoughts.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Rhyme Beat somehow finds new ways to spell her own name wrong in-game, ''especially'' during the Pirateverse. Constantly joked about, but all in good fun.
** Given a good {{Callback}} later. In order to avoid being overheard by Ajay Beat writes down what she's trying to say. The results [[RougeAnglesOfSatin were exactly what you'd expect from a pirate living in the 16th century.]]
* SpoonyBard: Greekverse Rhyme.
* StraightGay: Xavier isn't particularly [[IncrediblyLamePun flaming]] despite the Fire based team in Pokeverse.
** Jack Beat is this in Christmasverse. Though he's not as apparent about it as Xavier, hoo boy.
* StatusQuoIsGod: Invoked far too often, to the point of being unrealistic because of how the game works. When an Universe changes, everybody comes into the new one as new characters. Apparently some characters act like this isn't the case.

* TheMole: 'Nix in Pirateverse.
** Seems to be Ajay's plan so far, in the same universe, no less.

** [[spoiler: Dana]] as the murderer of her brother and Penny in Noriverse,
* TheStoic: 'Nix is usually calm, though he rathers enjoys his Jester persona.
* TangledFamilyTree: The Warrior family. Counting the in-laws nearly all the cast is there somewhere.
* ThisIsMyNameOnForeign: In Neo-Tokyoverse Ozzie is a nickname for Azumi and Rhyme is [[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Raimu]].
* ThoseTwoGuys: Grant and [[strike: Jackson]] Johnson. Other various team-ups have happened throughout the roleplay too. Few are nearly as important.
* TooMuchInformation: Many, many times.
* UnequalRites: Clerics and Witches use two types of magic that cancel eachother out.
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Michael/ Miguel doesn't ever catch a break with Norma.
* YouHaveFailedMe: The Emperor in Greekverse doesn't take Monster's that lose well.
* WeaksauceWeakness: The problem with having three heads? Breathing smoke. Yeah, quite the situation for Hydronix.
** How do you defeat Gregory(atleast in Greekverse)? Threaten to cut his hair.

* {{Yandere}}: Estelle Marsh.
