Tropers / Tobydelgato

Tobydelgato is a young American woman who also likes to contribute to TV Tropes and takes herself far too seriously. She likes video games just a little too much and loves to write and draw and then—

—Okay, no more Third-Person Person, I promise.

Anyway, yeah, I love writing and drawing, and at one point I had a Deviant ART page but I'm ashamed of what's up there. I was also once a Fan Fiction writer, but now I find I prefer writing original work. I am also a lazy slob who likes to procrastinate and only barely meets deadlines for essays and such. I should probably work on that.

I also tend to think in terms of tropes, and actively think up several minor tropes I'm going to use in a work while I'm writing it. It can be maddening sometimes.

Tropes about me:

  • Berserk Button: Several, though being called stupid or being told to shut up makes me Hulk Out.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: I used to get in-school suspension a lot when I was in elementary school. Now people can't believe it!
  • Brainy Brunette: Then again, so is my mother, so it runs in the family.
  • Brainy Specs: I have them. They are not the most flattering, but I don't really care.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Oh, yeah, A's are nice and all, but so are other things, like video games...
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Most of the time.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Also most of the time.
  • Fan Hater: I used to be one, until I realized that I was being a complete idiot about things like books and movies. Now I can't stand them.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: How some people feel about me.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Not in Real Life, but on the internet I tend to go by some very ambiguous names.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: My username on several websites (including here). I also love to greet people with 'Hola' and read things out loud in Spanish just to keep myself fresh.
  • Kind Hearted Cat Lover: At least, to my own cat.
  • Kuudere: I'm ice cold to strangers but I can't shut up around my friends and family.
  • Older Than They Look: In my senior year of high school, I was mistaken for a sophomore. I have had several people ask if I'm a freshman already, and this is my second year of college. Granted, being short and awkward-looking doesn't help things.
  • Perpetual Frowner: To the point where my own friends think I'm incredibly unhappy or always angry, when really I'm just either very deep in thought or minding my own business.
  • Ridiculous Procrastinator: Hohoho, yes.
  • Shrinking Violet: You will never find me at parties or talking to someone without being spoken to first. In fact I generally like to avoid people when I can, as I have a crippling fear of being berated.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Then again, I actively try to show as little emotion as possible when I'm not talking to someone.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Steak. And strawberries, at least according to my dad.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: I actually enjoy doing laundry and vacuuming, but I can't cook worth a darn. I would say I'm modest and demure, but then this would just seem like one big joke, wouldn't it?
