Tropers: Aspie

Hey there. I'm Aspie. Won't tell you my real name cause I don't know who you are. What?! That does not make me a Conspiracy Theorist! Take that back! Well, to prove I'm not one, I will tell you some things about myself. I live in the great state of Washington where I attend Seattle University. I'm 23 years old and I'm currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice with a specialization in Forensic Psychology. (And yes, I do watch Criminal Minds.) My favorite type of literature is the detective novel. (Big shocker right?) I also love anime and manga. My favorite (naturally) is Case Closed. My favorite authors are Lisa Gardner and Robert Crais, and my favorite band is Nickelback.

Tropes I've Launched:

Oh, and one more thing: I have Asperger Syndrome.

Tropes this troper provides examples of:

Tropes used in my writing:

  • Big Bad Friend: The stalker in "Memento Mori" turns out to be the main character's best friend.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: The main character in "Diary of a Demon Exchange Student" addresses the reader a couple of times during the story. Justified, as she's using a magic crystal to record her words, thoughts, and actions as the events of the story unfold around her.
  • Bookworm: Caitlin Myles, the protagonist of "The Book Jumper": In her very first scene, she's in the library of a juvenile detention center, reading The Inferno and gets annoyed with a guard for interrupting her.
  • Conveniently an Orphan: Caitlin Myles again. Her parents were killed in a car accident while she was in juvie, so now she has to live with her uncle, also known as the lawyer who secured her an early release.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Demons in "Diary of a Demon Exchange Student": Pure-bred demons have dark green scales and orange eyes, giving them an unpleasant reptilian look, but they are no more inclined to evil than the average human would be.
  • Easy Amnesia: Averted in "Memento Mori", my first novel. The main character spends most of the novel having no clue who she is or why some anonymous stalker is threatening her. The memories come back slowly and only in response to various stimuli.
  • Half-Demon Hybrid: I will be introducing some of these as "Diary of a Demon Exchange Student" progresses. I've already conceived of a race of lion-esque demons called Sekhmites (so named because the first ones were the product of a careless fling between a demon and the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet.)
  • Involuntary Shapeshifting: The Evil Plan of the villain in "Diary of a Demon Exchange Student" includes forcibly causing demons in the mortal world to assume their original forms.
  • Just Got Out of Jail: Caitlin Myles at the beginning "The Book Jumper."
  • Our Demons Are Different: The protagonist of my second novel, "Diary of a Demon Exchange Student" is a demon, but she is much different than the typical image of demons. As I pointed out to someone who compared my story to The Screwtape Letters:
    Me: There are three key differences in the story I'm writing: 1) My demons aren't from Hell. 2) My main character, though a demon, is not evil. 3) My demons want to study humans, not corrupt them. They're more like scientists, acting out of a mix of academic curiosity and the desire to improve their own society.
  • Our Souls Are Different: In "Diary Of A Demon Exchange Student", even demons can be born with souls, though this is a rarity, only occurring in about one in one-hundred thousand demons. The main character likens it to a genetic mutation.
  • Portal Book: Played with in my current project "The Book Jumper": The main character can enter books, but the ability to do so comes from her, not from the book. To an ordinary human, it would just be a book. Also, once she enters, she's stuck there until she the story in the book is resolved.
  • Shout-Out: In "Diary of a Demon Exchange Student", the World Gate attendant mentions that the idea of using a mirror to travel between worlds came from a book in the mortal world.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Demons in "Diary of a Demon Exchange Student", though they require the aid of external magic to do so. The magic of the World Gate (a mirror that acts as a portal to the human world) also allows demons to take on a mortal form. Most demons become humans, though becoming something other than a human is allowed. Once the form is chosen, the demon is stuck with it for the duration of their stay, though they are given magic rings that temporarily restore their demonic form, in case of emergencies.

Some Stuff I Like

Things I don't like

Justin Bieber - Because if people with a meidocre singing voice were meant to be stars, I would've been huge.

Some fan-made music video's I created.

  • Dark Cloud 2 - Livin On A Prayer. This one was my first. Oh, and I have my first name at the end of this one, so if you wanna know it, there it is. Also, I do know that I wrote gamestop instead of gamespot.
  • Death Note - Taking Back Control. This is my personal favorite. Enjoy.
  • Naruto - Faith. Uses clips solely from episode one of Naruto. I had fun with this one.
  • Victorious - Dance Forever I didn't like this one as much as the others, since one of the source videos I used was really grainy and there wasn't a lot of selection either, but I couldn't bring myself to delete it.

Put comments and stuff here. Have fun, but please sign them.

You sound a lot like me. Maybe because of Asperger Syndrome. Rainbow Dust

You sound quite different from me. I wish I had something to specialize in, but I'm just a clerk. Your tastes are different too. Officially diagnosed with AS? Bonsai Forest
Yes. When I was six.

I got Aspergers too, but I'm not lucky in love or in life. But I see you like Victorious which I like too. Let me guess- you're a dude, right? Arnoldmcguire335
Yes. I am a guy. I checked out your page, we have quite a bit in common. I see your also a fan of H 20 Just Add Water. I got hooked on that after I checked it out on youtube and watched all three seasons in a week and a half.

It's all right. We all know who you are... (as you can guess, I like to mess with conspiracy theorists' minds. Amused Troper Guy
That's okay, I'm not really a Conspiracy Theorist. I just pretend to be one for laughs. Or maybe I am.

Hello, fellow Aspie. Kind of like Rainbow Dust, you do sound a lot like me. I also love Criminal Minds. I'm interested in pursuing a career in forensics, like working in a crime lab or something. What can you tell me about the field of forensics? —Indigo12ash
