Is a twentysomething troper in the vague direction of Arizona. Loves to write, and really, really needs to go over her pseudo-novel and clean out some of the artifacts of her... less-good-writing
days. Naturally, she loves TV Tropes
because it helps her with her writing, and even serves as a profound source of inspiration.
According to her friends, family, and accquaintances, she knows "something about everything"
, and as such, adds lots of different kinds of examples to the Wiki. (To herself, she feels pretty dumb compared to other people.) She's familiar with a pretty wide range of "stuff," from the most Trope Overdosed
shows out there to obscure children's books. In particular, she adds stuff from Nintendo games, 90's animated movies (and Pixar
), and random fantasy novels. (Yet, oddly enough, has not
read anything in The Wheel of Time
or A Song of Ice and Fire
Among her cohorts
, she is the Gamer Chick
, Insufferable Geniusnote
, The Snark Knight
, and occasionally the Lovable Coward
and Covert Pervert
. She finds it hilarious that she is also apparently very desirable

Stuff I Entry Pimp
- Psychonauts, although there seem to be some surprisingly dedicated fans of it here. Thus, I often find good Psychonauts examples taken. D'awww. (Alternatively, D'artagnan.)
- Beyond Good & Evil.
I think I've added over half its examples by now. If you see an example from this game somewhere, it has an almost 90% likelihood of having been added or tweaked in some fashion by me, to the point where I'm more surprised to see examples from it that I didn't add. I need a hobby.
- Chibi Robo. Made the page for it, too.
- Monster Rancher. Somebody needs to love this series... Looks like it has to be me, since I almost single-handedly populated it.
- Banjo-Kazooie. How did we get a trope named after one of its levels, and all those examples, without giving it a page?
- Magi-Nation. I recently rediscovered all my old cards. Nostalgia overwhelemed me, and I couldn't help myself.
- Diana Wynne Jones. Just the author in general. (If I hear another random Internet-goer use the name "Hauru", I'ma cap some-bod-ay.)
- Fossil Fighters, because dinosaurs are awesome.
- Various Harvest Moon games, especially DS (Cute) and/or Animal Parade. Repeated references to Carter are because I married him in Cute.
- The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and other Nintendo odd's bods

It feels good to knock things down
It feels good to see the disgust in their eyes
It feels good and I'm gonna go wild

with me. It makes it worth it. :') ~ Pirka
- Hi. Just wanted to say I like "A Charlie Brown Christmas" also. It's a Christmas classic for TV. Also, I believe life is better with friends, not enemies. (8^) -AlBundyFan365
- OMG EEGEES. They are the best thing. Tho I am usually boring and just get the lemon flavor.note -Merton
- Thanks for the Harvest Moon suggestion. You seem like a neat person. :) -snailbait
- When a troper gets her own quotes page and nobody objects, you can just tell that she's awesome. -The Hero Hartmut
- Anyone who entry pimps Chibi Robo deserves a cookie in my book.-DrStarky
- I still have no idea what's in that thread you made about me, but the mere fact that you're planning something— a conspiracy! >w>— tells me that you are made of crowning moments. Of awe-inspiring awesomeness. You rock, ma'am. -D Jay 32
- Anyone promoting A Charlie Brown Christmas is aces on my book. - Amused Troper Guy
I Blame TV Tropes For My Addiction To The Following:
Just for Fun
, here is a list of tropes that I have used in my own writing.
In my original fantasy stories:
Stuff in progress that I'm working on; probably not interesting to you
Banjo the Honey Bear
One of the two heroes of the series, and the one who does most of the legwork. For the most part, Banjo is an easygoing, not-always-very-bright
bear whose biggest loves in life are good food, good naps, and, for reasons that are difficult to fathom,
hanging out with Kazooie. However, he's not beyond adventuring, especially if a witch is threatening to cut into his relaxation time!
- Big Brother Instinct: Even if he's not the most adventurous sort, he'll still do whatever it takes to save Tooty.
- Dumb Muscle: He gets a little smarter with each passing game, being almost up to Kazooie levels of snark in Nuts and Bolts.
- Genre Savvy: He becomes this in Tooie, but almost in a Genre Blind way. If that makes sense. (Being Genre Savvy is just sort of the way people are in the Banjoverse, and most of them aren't really Genre Savvy that they're Genre Savvy except Kazooie.)
- Non-Action Guy: Most of the time, but he can be brave and daring when he needs to be.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Honey, of course. It even heals him!
- Vague Age: He seems to be old enough to live by himself, but he doesn't age significantly between Tooie and Nuts and Bolts despite ten years passing. His voice gets deeper between Kazooie and Tooie; maybe he hit puberty?
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Him and Kazooie, of course.
- Vocal Evolution: Sports a much deeper voice in Tooie, and every game after. Possibly he grew up a little.
Banjo's best friend is a breegull—specifically, a Red Crested Breegull, and most of the time, she lives in his backpack. Unlike him, she is often chomping at the bit for adventure, and unlike him, she's very, very snarky
and often rude. Despite this, she's not all bad
, and if you hurt Banjo under her watch, there will be hell to pay.
- Action Girl: Definitely!
- Butt Monkey: The world seems to enjoy using her as not just a punching bag, but a weapon.
- Deadpan Snarker: Oh yes. So very much.
- Feather Fingers: Has them in Nuts and Bolts.
- Genki Girl: In the first game, although she was still snarky, she was surprisingly much more earnest—she genuinely seemed to be enjoying her adventure, and had fun. In Tooie and afterwards, she's much more rude.
- Jumped at the Call: "Come on, Banjo, I want to go on an adventure!"
- Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: She had absolutely none until Nuts and Bolts, causing much Viewer Gender Confusion. When she got redesigned, she picked up long eyelashes, more ornate "hair," and feminine curves.
- Viewer Gender Confusion: Oh yes. Rude, crude, and the physical powerhouse of the pair? Hello, confusion!
