A Father to His Men: Mason Abusive Parents: Thomas' dad, and Kat's parents (according to her.) Ambiguously Gay: Although Chris claimed that Hayley was homosexual, it could be that he assumed by him and the cast that he was due to his behavior and crossdressing. Hayley himself, however, said nothing about the matter as of yet. Attention Whore: Genevieve and Hayley stand out as prime examples. Author Tract: This happens on occasion on the "Author Remarks" sections that appear before and after a chapter. See "Getting Crap Past the Radar." for one specific example. Bare Your Midriff: Felicity, Jazmin, Kat & Stephanie Belief Makes You Stupid: David. Justified, due to his upbringing. Bitch in Sheeps Clothing: Felicity Break the Haughty: Paisley. It was broken really fast, as she went home first. Breaking the Fourth Wall: This is brought up on occasion. The Bully: Blake, to Thomas and Zayden. Casanova Wannabe: Jacob Chivalrous Pervert: Jacob Cloudcuckoolander: Many people are this Augustus. His philosophical discussions and specifically, his manner of speaking. David, solely due to his extreme naivety. Emphasize on extreme. Ethelinda, although she technically doesn't count from her point of view. But from Chris' and the rest of the contestants, she is seen as one. Even worse, some campers see her as a fake phony due to her overall appearance and her seemingly outlandish claims of possessing magic powers, clairvoyance and levitation ability. Hayley, enough said. Iris, and how Tania, although she could be considered the lightest example. She is highly optimistic, compared to most of the cast. Her randomness and quirky nature also puts her on this spot. Zayden, his constant daydreaming discract him from reality. Crossdresser: Hayley Dark and Troubled Past: This seems to be a recurring theme to many of the characters. Hayley and Iris are lightly implied to have this. It is implied that Kat and Zayden also have this type of past. But two characters who are confirmed tho have this past are: Mason, his parents kicked him out of the house and was sent to boot camp due to his former rebellious nature. Thomas, for crying out loud, he was kicked out of the house by his father at age six'. Then he was put in an adoptive home where his peers continued to bully him. Deadpan Snarker: Although they are a few, Lois takes the crown with this trope. The Ditz: Felicity, Subverted, she knows . exactly what's going on and doesn't give a fuck about anyone else Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Seth has this attitude, saying that sympathy crap doesn't work. Does Not Like Magic: The reason why, according to Ethelinda, her homeworld “Ithika” detests Earth. Dumb Blonde: Felicity Subverted, she is not as dumb as you think. Elderly Immortal: Ethelinda is 1,459 years old! This is one of the statements that the contestants deem nothing more then a silly lie. Expy: Eyes Always Shut: Augustus whenever he talks. Fearless Fool: Blake Garage Band: Seth's band, "The Grudge." Gender-Equal Ensemble: Having the exact same ensemble as canon (11 females, 11 males.) Genre Savvy: Michele Getting Crap Past the Radar: The author heavily disagrees with censorship, explaining that it infringes artistic freedom. Therefore, any material from the fic that would normally be censored would not be. This is done on purpose. God is Good: David specifically said that God will "fix everything bad eventually." Go-Getter Girl: Paisley & Stephanie Granola Girl: Michele & Paisley Hates Everyone Equally: Many characters. Specific examples include Genevieve and Seth. Hormone-Addled Teenager: Big-Daddy and Jacob, the former's case is a hundred time's worse though. It's All About Me: Blake & Genevieve Jerkass: There's quite a handful. Big-Daddy, Blake, Felicity, Genevieve, Jazmin, Paisley, Seth. Laughing Mad: Iris' signature laugh. Lazy Bum: Zayden Like Is, Like, A Comma: Felicity, as a part of her strategy. The Load: Big-Daddy Madame Swears a Lot: Felicity, but only when using the confessionals, and how Magic Music: How Ethelinda casts her magic. Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Tania is this to Thomas. Manipulative Bitch: Genevieve, mostly during eliminations. Nice People: David, Ethelinda, Michele and Tania. Nightmare Fetishist: Iris ObfuscatingStupidity: Felicty, although a couple of others use this trope too. Odd Friendship: There's quite a few in this fic. The Philosopher: Augustus Politically Incorrect Villain: Felicity with her strong hatred for gays and people of other ethnicities other then her own. Pretty Boy: Seth, according to Hayley and Stephanie. The Prima Donna: Genevieve, and how Red Oni, Blue Oni: Mason is red, the energetic, emotional one whilst Nigel is blue, the more calm, rational one. Rich Bitch: Genevieve The Runaway: Kat - the main basis of her backstory. Sarcasm-Blind: David is completely oblivious to Lois' sarcasm. Justified, he was isolated from the modern world. Sassy Black Woman: Jazmin, played straight. Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Augustus' type of speech. Small Name, Big Ego: Blake, and how Shrinking Violet: Thomas, and how Soapbox Sadie: Paisley Stepford Smile: This is a tactic used by a lot of people. Felicity stands out as the prime example. Team Parents Mason, for the Killer Conquerors Michele, for the Screaming Crybabies Tomboy and Girly Girl: Kat - Tomboy, Stephanie - Girly Girl Too Dumb to Live: Big-Daddy, and ''how' True Blue Femininity: Felicity - her blue jacket and blue pants. The Unintelligible - Big-Daddy, every sentence he speaks is hard to understand. Valley Girl: Stephanie, but downplayed. She does not say "like" every five seconds and seems to have some sort of intelligence. Felicity appears to be this. But really, it's a part of her facade. Villain with Good Publicity: Felicity and Genevieve. Wide-Eyed Idealist: David and Mason You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Paisley Younger than They Look: Lois, her picture makes her look more like she's in her 30's.
