[[http://everything2.com/ Everything2]], (AKA Everything, AKA E2) is a cross between a {{wiki|Tropes}} and a massive multi-user {{blog}}.

Each page of Everything2 is called a "node". A node is just a title -- a topic for discussion or elucidation. Attached to the node are "writeups" -- written descriptions, essays, anecdotes, fiction or poetry on the subject of the node.

A node without any writeups -- that is, created in anticipation of some other user's writeup -- is called a "nodeshell". It is surprisingly common practice for some noder to create a bizarre, contrived node name[[note]]for instance, [[http://everything2.com/title/Your%2520hands%2520do%2520the%2520work%2520of%252010%252C000%2520highly%2520trained%2520lesbian%2520jumping%2520beans "Your hands do the work of 10,000 highly trained lesbian jumping beans"]][[/note]] without specifying a writeup to go with it, instead waiting patiently for some other user to write their own interpretation of that title. This (creating a writeup for an intentionally empty node) is known as a "nodeshell rescue".

(This explains those occasions where a node's title proclaims one opinion loud and clear, but has a corresponding writeup that has a more reserved opinion of the subject.)

Also contains categories -- lists of collected nodes sharing a like premise or theme.

Home to such fiction series as ''Literature/NewYorkMagician'', ''Literature/FineStructure'', the ''Literature/MetroCityChronicles'', and ''Literature/TheManWithTheTerribleEyes''. See also [[http://everything2.com/title/tv+tropes tv tropes@Everything2.com]]
