Tropers / The Renaissance Raver

"Eh? The frell...!? An update!? When the heck...!?"

"She updated?"

"She updated."

"And she organized it."

"And she organized it? ...yeah, hell froze over."

The Renaissance Raver


Dark room. No windows, no lamps, no nothing. ...No, wait, one thing. The familiar glow of a computer screen. But no one's there. there?

"Looking for someone?"

You jump and turn behind you. It's a girl, 17 years of age. Black Tripp pants, black boots, black tank top, blonde hair pulled back into a ponytail. Lots of glowing things on her, too - glowsticks, glow bracelets, glow necklaces, glow earrings. On her head were a pair of goggles and a pair of headphones. She flips on a light switch near the wall.

How the hell someone manages to combine cyberpunk, rave scene, and Elizabethan England is something you probably don't want to think about right now.

"Ah, stumbled to my little corner of TV Tropes, did you? Sure you didn't get lost? Eyh, grab a seat (if you can find one) and I might as well bore ya to death if you got nothing else better to do..."

What's With the Weird Name?

The girl gives you a strange look when you ask about her username.

"No, I'm not referring to The Renaissance Man - I'm only a frelling junior in high school. I'm talking about Ye Goode Olde Days of Elizabethan England. I'm American, sure, but end of June every summer, it's a time warp to June 1585 and Bedlam on the West Coast. Complete with Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe, but then again, you were considered educated back then if you could spell a single word who knows how many ways.

"As for the raving? Convention Raves. Only ones I ever go to. Then again, the only two cons I ever go to have the only security team I trust with my life, too."

Apparently, she's not going to just sit around and talk about nothing...

"No duh, Sherlock, I'm not gonna sit here and talk to you about nothing. That would be literally boring you to death."

The girl shrugs, taking her seat in front of the computer and then leaning back in the chair, putting her feet up on the desk.

"Well, what else d'ya wanna know? Or are ya gonna just skim through this and get back to the Contributer's page or something?"

Pet Peeves

"Idiots who try to bother me when they've got nothing better to do, grammar mistakes on paper, and bread products left in the kitchen sink. Misspelling my real name or not noticing the frelling 'n' at the end of it. Unnecessary homework."


"Well, yeah, what about 'em? You got a problem? ...Oh, yeah - you wanna know what they are other than the obvious. Yeah, yeah, I get'cha...

"Lessee here... the basic stuff? Singing, reading, writing, surfing the net, playing video games, playing tabletop RP Gs, acting. Reading and writing what? Manga and videogame fanfiction, primarily. And mangas themselves, too, can't forget those...

"...And whatever I get stuck with for IB English. Crime and Punishment is not fun, really, even if you do like reading about people descending into insanity."
