Tropers / Rise from Your Grave

Rise from Your Grave is a troper from New England. He's been troping since 2011, though he had two accounts here prior to this one, hence the name. No, he doesn't want to talk about those ones. Let's just say he knows the rules now. Mostly.

Primarily a typo-correcting Lone Wolf (his most frequently-used edit reason is "Minor edit(s)."), his writing style tends to be long, descriptive, and usually formal. Yes, he was (and still is) a Wikipedia editor. While some aspects of TV Tropes tend to bother him even to this day, such as how the site still can't do text formatting in Pot Holes, he's become comfortable editing here ever since.

He has his own Sandbox page located here.

(Also, yes I did refer to myself in the third-person writing that description.)

Some pages he has significantly worked on include (along with some personal comments in parentheses):

    open/close all folders 

    Created pages 
Pages here that this troper has made.
  • Achievement HunterRooster Teeth's gaming division. Rise from Your Grave originally created this page when tropes for this division overwhelmed their parent company's own page. The page was initially under the Main namespace because RfYG was unsure exactly which namespace to put it under. Another troper moved it to the Creator namespace where it now stands, but this had the side effect of causing the Main namespace to be locked, preventing any opportunities for a potential trope with the name "Achievement Hunter" being made. (Sorry. Anyway, I no longer watch the group's videos as much as I used to.)
  • Burnout Paradise — 2008 open world racing video game developed by Criterion Games, and currently the last main title in the Burnout series. (One of my favorite games, Paradise is so distinctive from the rest of its series that it deserved its own page.)
  • The Crew — 2014 open world racing MMO published by Ubisoft. (The game's okay, but I like it more for its massive open world than for its driving, which isn't that great, and multiplayer aspects, which I don't tend to get involved in anyway.)
  • Gavin Free — British filmmaker and slow-motion cinematographer working for Rooster Teeth and the company's Achievement Hunter division. When Free's folder on AH's Characters sheet got too big, he had to have his own page.
  • Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch — 2005 Direct-to-Video animated film in the Lilo & Stitch franchise, and Interquel to both the first film and Stitch! The Movie. RfYG moved the film's tropes (along with those of its short film, The Origin of Stitch) to its own page and provided a lengthier description for it, allowing for the first film's tropes to be the sole focus of its page (for now). This also allowed this film to have some of its own subpages instead of being sectioned in the subpages of the first film and the franchise.
  • Recap.Lilo And Stitch The Series — Recap page for episodes in Lilo & Stitch: The Series, the first sequel spin-off TV series in the Lilo & Stitch franchise. Right now, there is only one Recap page for an episode in this series ("Angel").
  • Michael Jones — American actor working for Rooster Teeth and the company's Achievement Hunter division. Like Gavin Free above, Jones also needed his own page due to the number of tropes he has, especially since he was also starting to appear in other works outside of the company at the time.
  • Need for Speed — 2014 film adaptation of the video game series of the same name. (I only made this page in preparation for the film's then-upcoming release at the time; I never actually saw it.)
  • Need for Speed: Underground — Sub-series of Need for Speed games focused on tuners and urban car culture. Considering the popularity of this sub-series, it had to be made eventually, so RfYG took it upon himself to do so. (I only played the second game. I enjoyed it more when I was younger.)
  • Ray Narvaez, Jr. — American Let's Player and voice actor who previously worked for Achievement Hunter. At first, Narvaez didn't need one of his own, but when he departed Rooster Teeth in April 2015, his tropes had to be moved from the AH Characters sheet to his own page so people can continue providing tropes for his work and videos done after AH.
  • Ultimate Sidemen — British gaming group on YouTube. Created as the group became increasingly popular during 2014, which was when the troper started watching their videos. Before then, only two of the group's members had pages here made by another troper. (I still watch their videos to this day; I enjoy their Cards Against Humanity videos most. Don't care for their FIFA videos.)
    Reworked pages 
Pages that were already made before by others here, but this troper has significantly reworked into their current states (or at least an earlier version thereof). Subpages that this troper created as a result of reworkings are included here.
  • Forza — Semi-sim racing video game franchise published by Microsoft Studios. The page was originally created here under the series' initial name Forza Motorsport. When Forza Horizon became a series, RfYG reworked the introduction to show its then-newfound prominence alongside the older Motorsport series—including folders detailing both series individually—and also provided a new image featuring the franchise's logo and the logos of both series. He later moved the page to its current name after noticing the franchise's Wikipedia article having been moved to the shorter name as well, which is justified considering Horizon 3's announcement. (I do enjoy this series, yes. I'm more biased towards Horizon, however.)
  • Characters.Lilo And Stitch — The Characters sheet for the Lilo & Stitch franchise. Previously, it was just a long, somewhat disorganized sheet of characters and their tropes that appear in the franchise. RfYG first separated them into sections based on their debuts and their roles. Then, he decided to put them into different pages based solely on their roles (with the exception of the Stitch! anime's already-made Characters sheet) and convert the main Characters page for the franchise into an index. He created different pages for the titular duo of Lilo Pelekai and Stitch, the franchise's major and minor recurring characters, and the many experiments, the last of which allowed for the creation of folders covering many other recurring experiments. An image was later provided for the index page, and Characters.LiloAndStitchTheSeries would be created as a redirect.
  • Need for SpeedRacing video game series published by Electronic Arts. RfYG provided many different logo images on the top (the page initially showed the cover of the first game), separated the list of games into eras, then later moved said list to a Recap page, and reworked the description. He also provided some trope examples to both the Video Game and YMMV pages. (NFS is one of my favorite video game franchises.)
    • Need for Speed: Most Wanted — Two games in the Need for Speed series with open worlds and Hot Pursuits. The page was originally created by another troper who only made it focused on the 2005 original. When RfYG found out about this page and its 2005 bias, he had to change it up so it covers both that game and the 2012 game of the same name. New image, rewritten description, redone and expanded trope list, the works. (For the record, I have played and enjoyed both games as they are, but I didn't want one game to be the only occupant of the Most Wanted title here.)
  • ReactThe Fine Brothers' metaseries of reaction videos. The page was originally created here as "Kids React To" under the Web Video namespace, even though what is now the first React show has always been titled just Kids React. RfYG moved the page to WebVideo.KidsReact first, then as Teens, Elders, and YouTubers React came along, he moved it again to its current name. Combined with the increasing popularity of the shows at the time, the troper believes that both page moves helped tropers find the page and make countless contributions to it since. RfYG would later organize the page's tropes list into folders separating tropes found in either one of the different React shows or throughout the whole metaseries, as well as providing an image. (I stopped working on the page as much after it was heavily expanded, then later just stopped watching the series outright in 2016. Not because of the "React World" debacle, I just simply lost interest.)
  • Characters.Rooster Teeth — The Characters sheet for the Austin, Texas-based production company. First, RfYG simply moved the Achievement Hunter employees to their own Characters sheet, then later he decided to separate all the employees into different pages (creating pages for The Original Six founders and the company's other employees and collaborators) and convert the main RT characters sheet to an index.

    Significantly-edited pages 
Pages that this troper has (what he believes are) significant contributions to here, but have neither created nor heavily reworked.
  • TV Tropes — This very wiki. (I was the one who provided the current first line on the page. I thought that what is now the second line on the page was a little too insensitive to start out with, so added a nice little informal line to make the page seem more welcoming. It's not much of a contribution, but sometimes it's the little things that count.)
