Hello and welcome to my userpage. I'm just a Troper
that discovered TV Tropes
because of a coincidence. I quickly became addicted
and lurked around for a pretty long time, always imagining what edits I'd make if I were a member. Then I thought that if I joined TV Tropes
, I could make those edits and get done with TV Tropes forever
. It didn't work
Main pages that I've written:
My Playing With pages (44 in total, because writing this kind of page is probably what I do best) note :
My favourite works and creators:

Tropes that apply to me and reactions I have
Aspiring Mathematician of Brilliant Laziness
Maths ~Angelic Version~
- Afraid of Needles: I once felt faint when I tried to inject an orange with water. I'm not exactly a badass, though, so I'm not sure if this trope really applies.
- Angst Aversion: I often read the ending of a work in advance because I don't like spending a lot of time getting into a work that will just depress me in the end anyway.
- Apologises a Lot: Sorry about this!
- Artifact Username: Kind of.
- My username was derived from the song title "Healing Vision (Angelic Mix)" (the banner writes it with tildes and not parentheses) from Dance Dance Revolution. I chose it many years ago because I wanted to join a DDR forum and needed a username. However, I never joined because I was too shy. I decided to return later because I thought the forum and the community would always be there. I was wrong. When I tried to come back some years later, DDR had been declared Deader Than Disco. However, I kept the username to remind myself to always join the fun before it's too late.
- However, "Maths" is still right because I like mathematics, and "Angelic Version" refers to the fact that I try to be polite and positive on the Internet. You can say that while the structure of the name is an artifact, the individual components are still relevant.
- Author Appeal:
- Berserk Button:
- I have quite a few, but I'm Genre Savvy enough not to tell you what they are.
- However, it's no secret that I really hate Tangled. Let's just say that it pushed Berserk Buttons I didn't even know I had.
- Blessed with Suck: I sometimes feel this way about my mathematical skills.
- Book Dumb: Played with. I have decent grades in some subjects, while some of the others would have been better if I really cared. Also, if we interpret the trope literally, it applies because I hate books.
- Boss Subtitles: I'm not a boss in any game, but I've given myself a subtitle anyway.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: Lazy is played straight, while brilliant is zig-zagged.
- Captain Obvious: I often end up becoming this.
- Catch Phrase:
- "Unfair! I didn't see it (coming)!" (Said after making a mistake caused by not seeing something.)
Maths: Unfair! I didn't see it coming!
Alice: I ate too much candy floss before riding the roller coaster, so I threw up all over Bob, who was sick on me afterwards.
Maths: Too much information.
- "I'm fine, ___(person)" (Usually means "I'm not fine, but I don't want to bother you with it".)
Charlotte: Maths... You have like one evening to do that huge project that you were supposed to spend the whole month on... Do you want me to help you?
Maths: I'm fine, Charlotte.
- "That's slightly suboptimal." (Used as a reaction to something bad. Usually an understatement to comment on a hypothetical situation.)
Dina: You really need to start working on your project.
Maths: What happens if I don't?
Dina: You'll do badly and probably fail.
Maths: That's slightly suboptimal.
- "Isn't that commutative?" (Another way of saying "Does the order matter?".)
Ethan: Do your homework first. Then you can check Facebook.
Maths: Isn't that commutative?
- "I consider ___(verb)" (Precedes something I really ought to do.)
(Maths's project is due in 12 hours.)
Maths: I consider starting on my project.
- "No comment" and "Maybe" (Used as a response to yes/no-questions when it's really obvious that the answer won't be what the asker wants to hear.)
Flora: Have you done your homework?
Maths: No comment.
- "I/We assume without loss of generality that..." (Precedes something I think is probable.)
Maths: I assume that without loss of generality.
- Cursed with Awesome: As a Shrinking Violet, I don't have a social life (in Real Life), except for having some friends that I've met because of our common interest in mathematics. This means that I have more time for homework, mathematics, TV Tropes, various other interests, and my Internet friends, as well as being safer from negative influences.
- Deadpan Snarker: I occasionally try to be one, but rarely pull it off well.
- Doing It for the Art: My motivation for Touhou Danmakufu scripting.
- Ending Aversion: Similarly to Angst Aversion, I often read the ending in advance because I don't want to waste time on something that will ultimately leave me disappointed.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: As someone that isn't too fond of swearing (and isn't allowed to anyway), I usually end up using these or Unusual Euphemisms.
- Grammar Nazi: Downplayed, as I try to get rid of my grammar nazi tendencies. I think being a Grammar Nazi is impolite at times. If I find a mistake somewhere I can edit it, I usually do. If I can't edit it, I'll usually forgive it because I understand what the author meant anyway. However, if the writing looks like They Just Didn't Care (as in several spelling errors a sentence, consistently writing "u" for "you", no puntuation or capitalization, etc.), on the other hand... example of what not to do
- Hair Decorations: I usually wear a hair band to keep my hair away from my eyes. I honestly don't care if it you think it makes me look younger than I am.
- Learnt English from Watching Television: I did take English classes too, but I feel that I learnt more from watching TV, playing games, and reading on the Internet.
- Lucky Charms Title: Zig-zagged. From the most to the least preferable version, my username can be written "Maths ~Angelic Version~", "Maths -Angelic Version-", "Maths (Angelic Version)", "Maths Angelic Version", or "MathsAngelicVersion". I accept all of them. You can also just call me "Maths".
- No Sense of Direction
- Not a Morning Person: I'd probably be nocturnal of I could.
- Picky Eater
- Ridiculous Procrastinator: I'll write an explanation and find a better joke soon.
- Self-Deprecation: Some of this page.
- Straight Edge
- Sweet Tooth
- The Teetotaler: I'm old enough to drink now, but I still don't want to.
- Tempting Fate: Browsing TV Tropes after midnight. What could possibly go wrong?
- Third-Person Person: Averted, even for my userpage because Maths thinks it sounds annoying and pretentious.
- True Neutral: At least that's what the alignment test I took said. Actually, I took five tests a long while ago and got five different resultsnote , but I feel that True Neutral is the one that fits me the best. I think I have Neutral Good tendencies, though.
- You Make Me Sic: I have a bad habit of doing this, and of shoehorning it into most of the dialogue I try to write.
- Wanton Cruelty to the Common Comma: Expect me to lampshade particularly egregious examples.
- What an Idiot: Probably applies:
- Auto-Scrolling Level: I like going through levels at my own pace.
- Big Boo's Haunt: I think these are the least enjoyable Mario levels because I dislike the atmosphere and because these levels often rely on annoying tricks and gimmicks.
- Brought Down to Normal: When it happens to a protagonist that had cool and/or useful powers, I find it pretty sad.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome
- Deconstruction: Unless it deconstructs something I don't like. I want fiction because it's not reality. I want fiction because X is possible in fiction, but not in reality. I don't want fiction because I want to know what kind of stupid tragic consequences X would have in Real Life.
- Or, in the words of Cliché: "Lol, tropes are stupid. I'm so edgy." It's more of a complaint about the use of the word "deconstruction", but you get the idea.
- Determinator when subverted and the determinator suddenly gives up for a stupid reason.
- Downer Ending, Sudden Downer Ending, Shaggy Dog Story, Shoot the Shaggy Dog, etc.: As from the explanation why Shoot the Shaggy Dog is one of Sturgeon's Tropes: "You can tell a grim story about life's futility that audiences will find effective and moving, but usually, audiences will feel that you wasted their time with pointless, depressing crap." My version of that: "You can tell a tragic story that I find moving, but most of the time, I'll fell that you wasted my time with pointless, depressing crap."
- Eureka Moment: Feels like an Ass Pull, a Shocking Swerve or a Deus ex Machina when done badly.
- Fake Difficulty in most, if not all, of its forms.
- Fake Longevity: Don't ask me to beat the game again with a different character. If I enjoy the game and think it's worth doing, I'll replay it anyway.
- Genius Book Club: When their intelligence is shown by reading "classics" like Shakespeare. I swear, I'll never understand why reading a fictional story about two stupid lovers that end up dying implies that you're smart. However, I do understand when they read science or something like that.
- Gift of the Magi Plot: I know it's supposed to be heartwarming, but I just find it stupid.
- No Ending: I got into this stupid thing because I wanted a resolution!
- Reading Is Cool Aesop: Unless it's a rare example about characters appreciating something that isn't novels. See Genius Book Club.
- Under the Sea: Most of the time, I end up getting annoyed by the swimming controls.
