is the most common online pseudonym of ... well, the lurker-turned-semi-troper named Luo. He has a bit of an Unlucky Everydude
complex, which predictably has a tendency to make him bitter at times. Luo is a milder form of Otaku
of the anime/manga and gaming varieties who is prone to bouts of Gratuitous (and occasionally inaccurate) Japanese
. He was motivated to create a handle after reading the Troper Tales
section, and while he's horrible at finding new tropes, he's gotten better at recognizing known ones since he started coming here. He's very slowly starting to come out his shell by adding to references he has particular knowledge of, his current addiction being The Prince of Tennis
for some odd reason.
Luo may not be a hero, but he definitely has a thing for redheads
, so he jokes about the trope when asked about that particular preference. Same goes for Meganekkos
and Christmas Cakes
(though the latter doesn't apply as much anymore since he got older). He has also stated jokingly that his version of a dream girl would be somewhat of a cross between a Magical Girlfriend
and a Gamer Chick
, though he admits the former is unrealistic and that his fixation on the latter is because he doesn't know any personally. Despite being commonly thought of as a geek or a nerd, Luo doesn't have any Geeky Turn Ons
that he really knows of, but has been mercilessly teased a couple of times for his preference for intellectually stimulating conversation and cuddling at times (as opposed to the usual thing that happens when a man and a woman get together
Luo hopes to make meaningful contributions, and discover more tropes that could become his favorites and get worked into this page somehow.
