Laws and Formulas
"It was against the law
It was against the law
Oh what the mama saw
It was against the law"
Paul Simon, "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard"

Some tropes seem to be an expression of an underlying law of fiction. This category attempts to collect these fundamental elements. If some of these entries seem a bit tongue-in-cheek to you ... well, you should probably just get used to that feeling. And yes, sometimes there are two or more that are directly contradictory. We don't write them. We just catalog them.

If you're looking for an index for tropes about actual laws, try The Courtroom Index, Crime and Punishment Tropes, and/or Cops and Detectives.
