Useful Notes

aka: Useful Note
"I believe our future depends powerfully on how well we understand this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky."

Useful notes on a variety of subjects, the purpose of which is threefold:

  1. To debunk common media stereotypes.
  2. To help you understand some media better.
  3. To educate, inform, and sometimes entertain.

The Law of Wiki Expansion states that every specialized wiki will accumulate useful notes like these as it grows. Note, however, that this is not supposed to be an index of everything that exists in the real world — that is the purview of The Other Wiki. We are a site about media and storytelling. As a rule of thumb, items to be added should either be commonly featured in media, or related to its creation in some way.

Useful Notes articles are not tropes and are not to be included in a work's trope list.
