I'm always looking for ways to get inspired. Tvtropes seemed like some good inspiration, so I decided to lay down my roots here. I'm a Hawaiian note born in England and at present living in Texas. But one day (if I'm still using this site), you'll all learn that I will have made it back to my true roots. (in Hawaii) Alter ego of Camron Song. Your tropes for myself:Perhaps it's not proper to call myself a "contributor" since I haven't put out any tropes yet, but I'm still here to spellcheck everyone else's. ;)
