'''Work In Progress'''

Half-assed EntryPimp for FanFic/TheNeverendingRoad.
Aside from that... well, occasionally I'll put up examples, but mostly I just correct grammar.

One of these days I intend to create a page for ''Satan: His Psychotherapy and Cure by the Unfortunate Dr. Kassler, J.S.P.S.''

''Very'' rare poster on the forums.

One of the main reasons why I like TV Tropes so much is because of my love of stories. I love stories in any medium, and in any genre, so long as they're done well. It matters much less to me whether or not a story has a happy or a sad ending, or what the subject matter is, or whether the characters are even likeable, so long as it's well done. Maybe it makes me a bit of a story connoisseur... there are some stories I absolutely didn't enjoy for varying reasons, while admitting wholeheartedly that they were well done and that it was specifically because of my own hang-ups that I didn't like them. TheSorrowsOfYoungWerther is probably the best example. I absolutely loathe Werther as a character, which makes the whole things a pain to read... but it's really well-written, with good characterization and description, and a decent plot. I'm the same way with {{Fargo}}, for the most part, and a lot of other works. Let it not be said that I can't appreciate quality.

One of my great passions is history, and I think a lot of that is because it's kind of like the greatest, most intricate and in-depth story ever, and I often say that the most well-realized characters in fiction pale in comparison to the nuance of real people.

My personal brand of WishFulfillment fantasy is verbally confronting villains from fiction and trying to get them to make [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turns]], because I can't let them hurt people or myself, nor can I hurt them or let them be hurt. Annoyingly, my logical mind only goes so far, and the fantasy either stops somewhere where an impasse is reached or some other failure in my goal occurs (like them not heeding me and trying to hurt me). I suppose there are good and bad ways to look at that. On the one hand, it shows a rather grandiose and arrogant kind of ChronicHeroSyndrome on my part, while on the other it kind of shows I can make a realistic assessment of my abilities.

[[FavoriteTrope Favorite Tropes]]: I generally appreciate these tropes a lot when done right, though none of them should be used in just any situation. A lot of them are favorites due to aligning well with my personal sensibilities. I'm also more likely to play these straight in my own stories.

* AffablyEvil
* AnyoneCanDie
* ChronicHeroSyndrome and SamaritanSyndrome
* DarkIsNotEvil and LightIsNotGood
* EarnYourHappyEnding, BittersweetEnding, and DownerEnding (when they're well done)
* TheFederation
* TheFettered and TheUnfettered
* GoodIsNotDumb, GoodIsNotNice, and GoodIsNotSoft
* HelpingWouldBeKillstealing
* HeroOfAnotherStory (one of my very favorites)
* HeroicVow
* HumansAreFlawed and HumansAreSurvivors
* LivingForeverIsAwesome and general aversions and subversions of WhoWantsToLiveForever
* ScrewDestiny (another of my most loved tropes)
* StarfishAliens
* TakeAThirdOption (another of my favorites)
* ThouShaltNotKill
* ToBeAMaster
* TragicDream
* TrueCompanions
* WarIsHell
* [[AvertedTrope aversions]] and [[SubvertedTrope subversions]] of the WhatMeasureIsAnIndex
* WhatYouAreInTheDark

[[PetPeeveTrope Pet Peeve Tropes]]: These lists mostly apply only when played straight, and none of them can break a work on their own.

* most of the HollywoodIndex, with a few AcceptableBreaksFromReality, like HollywoodDarkness, being the exceptions
* everything in the TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs index, because I consider the tropes irresponsible
* all of the [[DoubleStandard Double Standards]], on principle
* all LogicalFallacies, on principle
* AboveGoodAndEvil (though BlueAndOrangeMorality and moral relativism are okay)
* AlwaysChaoticEvil (carries UnfortunateImplications)
* AmbitionIsEvil (problematic FamilyUnfriendlyAesop)
* BeautyEqualsGoodness (carries UnfortunateImplications)
* BookDumb (anti-intellectualism)
* CompleteMonster (because no one is)
* DeathByAdaptation and SparedByTheAdaptation (mostly because it often seems like a change for the sake of it)
* DumbIsGood (anti-intellectualism)
* FanDumb (well, it bothers me in real life, anyway)
* GuideDangIt (bad game design)
* HappinessInSlavery (massive UnfortunateImplications)
* ImmortalityImmorality, NoTranshumanismAllowed, ScaleOfScientificSins, and ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow (philosophically opposed)
* InformedAttribute (bad writing!)
* InsaneEqualsViolent (UnfortunateImplications)
* MoralEventHorizon (possibly my most hated single trope, because I'm philosophically opposed to the idea of an act or person being irredeemable)
* MyCountryRightOrWrong and MyMasterRightOrWrong (philosophically opposed)
* ShippingGoggles, DieForOurShip, ShipToShipCombat (basically any time when {{Shipping}} derails {{Canon}} or makes people out of character, or turns into a RomanticPlotTumor)
* ViewersAreMorons (another big one)
* WarIsGlorious (philosophically opposed)
