Playing With: Fille Fatale

Basic Trope: An underage girl who is unusually sexually precocious and makes advance toward much older men (among others).
  • Straight: 15 year old Alice dresses as provocatively as she can get away with and openly tries to seduce her teacher, Mr. Charles.
  • Exaggerated: 7 year old Beth mainly dresses in fetish gear as she uses drugs and blackmail to turn her Uncle into her sex slave.
  • Downplayed:
    • 15 year old Alice likes short skirts, and she flutters her eyelashes at her teacher if she wants him to cancel her detention or not assign homework, but her intentions beyond that are as innocent as any teenager's could be.
    • 15 year old Alice dresses as provocatively as she can get away with and openly tries to seduce Bob, an 18 year old high school senior.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted:
    • Teacher Mrs. Robinson dresses as provocatively as she can get away with and tries to seduce her 15 year old student, Chuck.
    • Kidanova
  • Subverted: Alice is totally innocent in her unintentional flirtation and would be shocked if Mr. Charles responded to the apparent advances.
  • Double Subverted: ... However the shock is pleasant as she is genuinely interested despite not activly seeking such attention.
  • Parodied: Mr. Charles' entire homeroom is filled with examples of every sexual fantasy schoolgirl archetype imaginable, and they all are very clear about wanting him.
  • Zig Zagged: Alice appears to be a normal teen, but is actually a flirtatious girl at her core. This is because of sexual abuse as a child, which she had mistaken for love and affection. She has learned that it's wrong, though she does not care because she does find it fun.
  • Averted: Alice finds her teacher attractive but would never even think of participating in any romantic, let alone sexual, relationship.
  • Enforced: "Having a teacher chase a fifteen year old would get us in trouble." "Why not have the fifteen year old chase him?"
  • Lampshaded: "Alice, aren't you cold?"
  • Invoked: "Mr. Charles, would you mind giving me... Private... Biology lessons after school?"
  • Exploited: Mr. Charles takes advantage of her because she's attracted to him, even though he's an adult and should know better.
  • Defied:
    • "What do you think I am, some sort of skank?!?"
    • "Alice, go home and change into something appropriate (kids these days, ugh)."
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: "Hasn't anyone thought to call a guidance councilor on that kid?"
  • Deconstructed: Alice has been sexually abused for years, and cannot get her mind around the idea of seeking approval from adults in a non-sexual manner. If Mr. Charles does cave, he is wracked with guilt, assuming he is not a sexual predator in his own right.
  • Reconstructed:
  • Played For Laughs:
    • Alice shows up to school while wearing only skimpy lingerie, flashes her teacher, and no one notices or acknowledges her behavior at all to her frustration. When she gives up and actually dresses appropriately, the teachers call her out on dressing "scandalously". This is despite the fact that she's wearing the exact same thing as everyone else.
    • Mr. Charles cranks the air conditioning whenever Alice dresses inappropriately.
    • When Alice asks Mr. Charles for some "private" lessons, he accepts. And when she comes, he forces her to study.
  • Played For Drama: Alice's behavior is shown to be a coping method after being abused. She's currently on the verge of suicide out of a confused desire for love. Mr. Charles must tread carefully for her sake to avoid it ending in disaster or scandal.
