Hi. TV Tropes: A wiki that catalogs tropes, conventions of storytelling. Tropes aren't cliches. Cliches are trite and boring. We want witty and informal. We like original thought. There's no such thing as notability here. The site's called TV Tropes because we started with TV. Now we cover all media types, because tropes are everywhere. No bashing allowed. All tropes are listed here. Have fun!
