Tropers / Inept Troper

As my user name suggests, I am an inept troper.

I discovered the TV Tropes Wiki in late 2008, and it soon became my favourite website - it was the kind of thing that I had been looking for for a while and I enjoyed the atmosphere/feel of the wiki. I began contributing to the site in early 2009.

Thanks to TV Tropes, I've discovered a whole load of interesting information that I might not have encountered otherwise, and generally I've quite enjoyed spending time on the site.

Unfortunately, recently various things have been preventing me from visiting and contributing to the site all that much. Also, the actions of certain people have slowly been bringing about the destruction of the atmosphere that I enjoyed. This has left me feeling very depressed.

I like a fair number of fictional works, a lot of them in the realms of sci-fi/fantasy and a fair number of them anime/manga-related. I would like to write a story of my own someday and have gathered hundreds of little ideas, but I've never managed to get going.

    Tropes and other things which could apply to me 
  • Apologises A Fair Bit: Something I tend to do.
  • Asperger Syndrome: Not severe, but enough to have a noticeable impact.
  • Berserk Button: I have a few, though I tend to keep my anger bottled up rather than letting it out. A fair number of them also act as Depression Buttons. Also rather annoyingly, some of them I find difficult to describe properly.
  • BSOD: I've been in a Troping-related one from late 2012 onwards, which has unfortunately affected both my contribution to the site and my enjoyment in browsing it, as well as being a major contributing factor towards my depression.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: A problem I have a fair amount of time - I often know what I want to get across, but I find either can't find the words to get it across or find myself hesitating in doing so.
  • Death Glare: I've been noted to give these when I'm cross.
  • Fatal Flaw: Hesitation, probably.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Even when I'm not particularly cross.
  • Poor Social and Communication Skills: A major problem for me (it's always been one and it's been getting worse in recent years). I'm quite often unable to get most of my thoughts into words properly, take quite a lot of time attempting to do so and what I get down is often miscommunicated. I also have a tendency to be a bit vague at times.
  • Ridiculous Procrastinator: I tend to put off things longer than I should. This page is proof of that.
  • Self-Deprecation: To a certain extent.
  • The Quiet One: I don't talk very much normally, both on the internet and in real life, partly because I have a tendency to be quiet, partly because I'm a bit shy, and partly because of problems I have communicating with others (which is quite frustrating).
  • Understatement: I have a tendency for these.
