Hello all! Jedd-the-Jedi here, from Sunny Singapore
! I was introduced to TV Tropes by my best friend, and the sheer number of examples of tropes here boggles the mind. It's hard to choose a favourite trope, but mine would have to be Beethoven Was an Alien Spy
because it's not enough that presidents were just presidents or founding fathers just founded their fathers - they must be something cooler! I'm also a big fan of Hey, It's That Guy!
! because I have been doing that (playing six degrees using actors and films) ever since I was a kid, and it helps Mum understand several films better. For example:
"Hector Barbossa makes a decent living as a tailor working in Panama, and is married to Helen Tasker and they have nice kids, one of who is Harry Potter. And then James Bond screws everything up. "
I'm a self-professed fanboy, a nerd through and through. I've been fans of various things since I was really young, from musical conductors, to dinosaurs, to Star Wars
, through to Batman
. I also enjoy 80s spectacle musical theatre (even though I was born in the early 90s), especially The Phantom of the Opera
and Les MisÚrables
Many tropes are so appropriately named I'm hitting myself over the head asking "why didn't I think of that first?" But then of course I wouldn't have, due to hitting myself over the head one too many times.
