Tropers / Riley1s Cool
An approximation of my appearance, except prettier.

Hello. I am a contributor on TV Tropes, as you can tell. While you're here, you may as well learn a little bit about me. I am a teenage boy, who thinks of real life in trope terms, to avoid being depressed. I try to be optimistic, but it takes effort. I am not a Nice Guy, nor am I a Jerk with a Heart of Gold. I am the opposite of Magnificent Bastard, instead thinking I am. Despite everything, I have some level of humility. I am a fan of the following works:

Long list, I know. I also gave myself my very own speech, as mysterious, definitely-not-ripping-anyone-off I for Identity of the Newlluminati. Oh, yeah, and I may have created four pages:

All of them need much love.

Tropes I have found about myself:

  • Creator Breakdown: As of 2015, I have had enough of everyone's bullshit. I am a lot less personable, due to having some serious issues with the people in charge of my life. I am done standing by and listening to others in higher positions telling me who I am. The exception to this is This Very Wiki, where I try to obey orders the best I can. Why? Because so do the people in charge, unlike most people who are in higher positions than me, who are utter hypocrites.
  • The Social Darwinist: An odd variation. I actually don't give a damn about physical ability, but I feel the lazy and apathetic have no place on this planet, or at the very least, near me. This includes me.
  • Death Seeker: I was. Now, however, I resent the idea of it, even trying to stop other people like it. Why? Because if I have the will to live, then everyone should.
  • Leitmotif: Circus For A Psycho and Enemies.
  • Doomy Doom with extra doom and doom on top of DOOM: I really like saying the word doom. Really.
  • Berserk Button: Several, due to Hair-Trigger Temper. Examples are:
    • Mocking me for my bisexuality.
    • Mocking my intelligence.
    • Outwitting me in any way.
    • A serious one: Mocking anime, (Especially Blue Exorcist) Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, or Fallout: New Vegas will not make me angry, it will make me rip your throat out. Just sayin'.
    • I have no issue with the Furry Fandom, or bronies, but I am strictly a Type 2, and I am especially not a brony.
    • It is FALL OUT BOY. That is the band. It is not Fall Out Boys. None of them are "the Fall Out Boy".
    • No, you will NEVER punish me for what someone else did. This is a good way to make me snap, due to frequently having to endure it. If you try it, don't expect me to just take it, I will go against it, and I will not stop until I win.
    • Oh, sorry, you want something worse than that? When something minor is your fault, you don't have to admit it. But when said something will end with someone else punished? Don't you dare say Never My Fault. Worse yet is being blamed for things I didn't fucking do, which I hate having done to me.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: I will get irritated at anything.
  • Back Stab: One of my favorite things to write into stories.
  • The Chessmaster: I am fairly good at tricking people into doing really stupid things.
  • Deadpan you get the idea: What? You read this page, and haven't noticed already?
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Well, card-carrying Jerk Ass, not villain, but I am fairly close to the mark.
  • Slasher Smile: Goes hand in hand with psychotic smirk for me when I, you know, feel like it.
  • Hidden Depths: After my massive hamminess and stupidness-acting, I made a post on the Moral Guardians discussion page showing rational thought, and also saw from both sides of an arguement. Neither was exactly right, neither was exactly wrong.
  • Technology Marches On: I write this crap with an iPad.
  • Fake Nationality: When voice-chatting, I tend to use a British accent more often than not. It makes me sound older, and we all know about how adults treat the younger people online. Be honest. You know they treat them like crap.
  • Paranoia Fuel: I am constantly paranoid. My biggest fear is "not being alone in the darkness".
  • Nightmare Fuel: Invoked. I use my general casual demeanor as an intimidation tactic.
  • Manipulative Bastard: I have orchestrated (subtly) several things I regret. But they were awesome and I loved doing them. So... 50/50 regret?
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: One of my most common annoyances. My big question is usually: Why does X not just kill Y?
    • One of the reasons I root for the Red Hood in Batman: Under The Red Hood. He does have a point when he says to kill The Joker and I find his death to be a bit of a tearjerker.
    • A firm believer in it in real life. I believe killing is wrong, unless it is 100% necessary.
  • Bi the Way: Openly bi. I also like writing characters this way. It's... not that prominent unless one shows me Roman Torchwick.
  • Darker and Edgier: I believe it can be done to a certain level. Unlike RWBY. Have I mentioned I used to like RWBY? I've also done this as of my Villainous Breakdown.
  • Chaotic Neutral: My general attitude.
  • Ax-Crazy: While not really Ax-Crazy, per se, I am very quick to violence.
  • Anti-Hero: Nominal or Unscrupulous.
  • Hikikomori: One could apply this to me. Averted, as I have actual human relationships, though.
  • Emo Teen: I'm growing out of it.
  • Harmless Villain: I try to be threatening. At my best moments, I'm a Jerk Ass. At my worst, I am this.
  • Nice Hat: My baseball cap, and fedora. Adding to this is a expensive checkered fabric top hat I once bought from a renaissance faire, which was the last of the specific form of fabric they had.
  • Bomb Throwing Anarchist: Deconstructed. I am somewhat this, but I also know the real definition of anarchy, and tend towards that as my actual philosophy.
  • Affably Evil?: While, once again, not evil, I am a complete Jerk Ass. While, just from a casual conversation with me, you'd know, but I maintain a standard of politeness when on the internet. Mainly so I can be a Jerk Ass by acting smarter than others.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Yes. I will pepper in swearing even when it makes zip for sense.
    • Especially when I rant.
  • Insistent Terminology:
    • I am biromantic, not bisexual.
    • As mentioned on Berserk Button, Fall Out Boy.
    • I tend to identify easier as "Riley" than my real name, with it even listed as my real name multiple times.
    • I am a (hotheaded) pacifist.
  • Black and Gray Morality: How I see the world. In the end, I'm firmly rooting for Gray.
  • Had to Come to Prison to Be a Crook: A lot of the darker parts of my personality are influenced by being constantly being screwed over for others' misdeeds and by the people in charge who refuse to take responsibility for what they do.
  • Evil is Cool: I attempt to make this image of myself in the eyes of others. It sure as hell isn't working.
  • Verbal Tic: "So..." "Well" and general stuttering.
  • Character Tic: Twitching and knuckle-cracking.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Kinda. Not anymore.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Prone to them, because Teens Are Monsters. If you want evidence, check out how saltalicious I can be when someone conflicts with me, talking in bold and being incapable of actual logic.

Normally I would be inclined to ignore the ignorance of these infirm idiots, and not involve innocents such as yourselves. However, tonight I feel that like Icarus, they have flown too high, and it is time to clip the imbeciles’ wings. I beg you not to idolize me, for I am simply inquiring upon the ivy of the human impact. I am ionized with might, to improve and inflict upon those who would invite me to their fools’ inquiry. Instead, I implore you to remember the Invasion of Indianapolis, and inform you that it is indeed I, I for Identity. I illuminate that you may understand this. Farewell, all. And understand this message. Cue Smoke Out.
