Playing With / Nature Lover

Basic Trope: A character loves natural surroundings.
  • Straight: Arthur gets a house at the edge of the city, where there are trees and fields, goes out into the countryside in his spare time, and for lunch always goes into the park.
  • Exaggerated: Beatrice lives in the forest and never comes out; she once was in the city and felt ill after an hour of seeing no plants.
  • Downplayed: Constantine sometimes walks in the park during lunch.
  • Justified: Some of Fiona's best memories take place outdoors, so she spends time there whenever she can.
  • Inverted: Donata lives in the city and goes out of her way to avoid the park and anywhere else with growing plants.
  • Subverted: Edgar lives in the suburbs and explains later he can't afford to live in closer.
  • Double Subverted: Francine laments how she has to live out in the countryside for the expense, but secretly loves it and claims that to avoid being belittled in the office.
  • Parodied: Arthur's house resembles a jungle on the inside, complete with stereotypical jungle noises, because he refuses to eliminate any form of nature in his surroundings.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: None of the characters have a preference for natural surroundings.
  • Enforced: ???
  • Lampshaded: "There's nothing I love more than a nice walk in the forest."
  • Invoked: "The MacGuffin's out at the mountain cottage? Ah, well, a chance to hike through the great outdoors."
  • Exploited: The Big Bad gives Marguerite a job out in the countryside, knowing she will jump at it and leave the city open for him.
  • Defied: ???
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
