OK, here's the deal. Who is Kahran042? An ordinary guy, a "cyber-drifter" if you will, just trying to carve his niche into the Internet. I post in a lot of places, sometimes under different names.

* {{LEGO}}

* NotAlwaysRight
* Thuryl's PhantasyStar and MightAndMagic LetsPlay s.

This user (I don't really consider myself a "troper") provides examples of:
* ApologizesALot

* BewareTheNiceOnes
* BiTheWay
* BigEater
* BrilliantButLazy

* [[CrazyCatLady Crazy Cat Guy]] / KindheartedCatLover, depending on who you ask.
* DeadpanSnarker (Or, at least that's how I like to think of myself.)

* DoubleJump (I can't be the only one who's tried to do it in RealLife...right?)
* EvilLaugh
* GrumpyBear
* HeavySleeper

* InsultToRocks (one of my favorite rebuttals)
* [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Jerk With A Heart Of Some Sort Of Precious Metal]]

* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Crabs?]]

Since there isn't really a page for this, I thought I'd put it here. It's a variant on FavoriteTrope where I don't necessarily like the trope itself, but find the page to be an interesting place.
* InterfaceSpoiler
* LongSongShortScene
* UniqueEnemy

And, since TroperTales was overhauled, I thought I'd put this up here:

Since I put up my favorite tropes, I might as well include their evil counterpart, the PetPeeveTrope s. It should be noted that I don't always hate these, but they're more often done poorly than not, so...

[[folder:My pet peeve tropes]]
* AManIsNotAVirgin
* AbuseIsOkayWhenItIsFemaleOnMale

* CantArgueWithElves / ScrewYouElves: Why can't we just have a happy medium between the two?
* CatsAreMean
* CerebusSyndrome
* ComplainingAboutPeopleNotLikingTheShow
* DudeNotFunny: '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Humor. Is. Subjective.]]''''' It is funny to me. And if it isn't funny to me, it's probably funny to somebody.
* EverybodyHatesHades
* FanHater: Because which is more pathetic - liking or not liking a fictional character, or hating real people for the fictional characters they happen to like or dislike?
* GirlsNeedRoleModels
* HeteronormativeCrusader
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer
* ImAManICantHelpIt
* IntendedAudienceReaction
* MarySue
* MoralGuardians
* MySisterIsOffLimits
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: Because it strikes me as being kind of judgmental against monsters that ''aren't'' "different."
* RealIsBrown
* RealMenHateSugar
* RememberTheNewGuy
* ShallowParody: If you're not going to try to understand something, then why bother parodying it?
* ShipTease / ShipperOnDeck: It's easier for me to not hate official couples if the writers aren't shoving them down my throat through their characters.
* ShutUpHannibal
* SoapboxSadie
* StopHavingFunGuys, and their weapons, the...
** CharacterTiers

Finally, the "Unspeakable Tropes." These are tropes that, although I don't really have a problem with the tropes themselves, I detest the way that they're primarily used on this wiki to belittle and demean people for daring to have different opinions from the majority or shut down any theories that a character might not be as [[DesignatedHero per]][[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic fect]] or [[DesignatedVillain dem]][[UnintentionallySympathetic onic]] as they're intended to be, or that just really annoy me for one reason or another. Due to this, I will not link to them, mention them by name, or visit their pages. Hence, I'm listing them here with all vowels, spaces, and capitalization removed to avoid linking to them or being tempted to visit them. By the way, the order has no real significance. It's just the order in which it occurred to me that I should avoid having anything to do with that page.

[[folder:The Unspeakable Tropes]]
* I. drcnlthrpnts
* II. rnthdthtr
* III. fndmb
* IV. htdmb
* V. dfrrshp
* VI. mrlvnthrzn
* VII. krmhdn
* VIII. msmdfndm
* IX. cmpltmnstr

BTW, if you can guess where I got the spelling of "theater" in my favorites section, you get a cookie.
