23rd Oct: It's time for the Second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest! Details here
"There's a man going around taking names
And he decides who to free and who to blame
Everybody won't be treated all the same
There'll be a golden ladder reaching down
When the Man comes around - Johnny Cash, When The Man Comes Around.
So, here you are. Along a single troper's page about the many random things he or she may like. You may have clicked on it accidentally, or you may have enjoyed something of theirs and wanted to see what else they enjoy, or maybe you just hit the random button and managed to come over here. But that is your call. At some point, you will scroll the mouse down, maybe see a banner add of two, and maybe you will stop to chuckle. "Hey, I've been in that situation." You might think, or "Hey, this person has a point!" or even more so "Hey, this person seems so SILLY!" that the irony, coincidental, or whatever the actual term they use up in the ivory schools is gets played for laughs, and everyone goes their happy ways. But this is you we are talking about, and maybe you just don't like that. Maybe you come down here, and you find that it all seems arrogant, or that it tries too hard to be funny, or even that it is just another troper looking for their 5 minutes of fame. You can think that, I have no reason to stop you. Hell I have no reason to stop you from doing anything you want to in this world. Or the right, do I? If you stop a bank robbery, and then find out it was a test by the store to see just how good it's own security was, did you do the right thing? Did you have the right to stop it? You would hope so, since common sense says it IS a bank robbery. However, you interfered with businesses, with the firm that acted out the robbery and the bank who needed to test their skills. And so, being on the case of neutrality, the judge lets you off with a warning, telling you to not try and stop bank robbers when you see them. There is that pesky irony again perhaps. But you continue on your merry way, and you see someone have their purse stolen. So, what do you do? Do you chase after the robber, like what was expected of you? Do you stay still and watch, because the judge told you so? Or do you realize that everything above is one massive in joke, and stop reading the passage before it's too late? So, here you are.
