das is a Russian student who nonetheless mostly surfs the English-speaking part of the Internet, and has been doing so for long enough to become addicted to webcomics, though he is also very interested in literature. Having discovered this wiki comparatively recently, he has set out on a dangerous, yet glorious quest to fill it with more random information. More specifically, he yearns to one day fill this entire wiki with examples from relatively obscure Russian (and maybe Polish) literature that most people here will likely never have even heard about, but he hasn't made much progress yet. If a trope example is from an obscure Russian science fiction novel and is needlessly hyperbolic and long-winded despite the best of efforts, it's probably the work of das. And now you know.
