Just For Fun: Where Are You From?
Here at TV Tropes, we're an international bunch. Submit your current location or place of origin and find out who else lives nearby.

And, if you feel like it, you can add a pin on this map. (You do need to have a Google account to edit the map.) If you can't register with Google for some reason, and you want to be on the map, PM Madrugada with infomation that will allow her to figure out where to put your pin, and she'll add you.

(Please don't include full addresses. You probably wouldn't want any of the Tropers turning up at your house for dinner unexpectedly. Probably.)
