Tropers / Tre

Hi, I'm Tre. This is my page, but you already knew that.

I'm twenty-one, black, autistic, a college student at the University of Kentucky, a radio DJ, male enough (he/his and they/them pronouns are both fine), a writer, a technology junkie, a purveyor of platformers, and a pop culture aficionado. I also make Electronic Music as Trevor Whatevr, with five EPs and three albums under my belt.

My radio show is called Whatevr Works, and it airs on WRFL-FM. It airs on Fridays from 12 to 2 p.m. EST. I like to play things in the general realm of the electronic, though pop, rock and hip-hop is also welcome as long as it fits the vibe — I draw from a rather diverse palette of tunes.

Most of my web presence beyond TVT is over on Tumblr at Trespeak, a mess of memes and nonsense that's become my Internet home. I also run a proper blog called the Tremulous One, which is basically just a place for me to ramble about things, and Unzipped, a second haven for even more memes (and occasional serious matters).

I had a novel series in the works, but at this point in time it's kind of dead (though I'm not ruling out the possibility of coming back to it).

I was a Troper (initially joining in March 2010 as Trerox, dropping the "rox" that July), then I wasn't, and now I am again. I left because I was bored with the site, but the time away gave me enough distance that I felt like coming back to see how things evolved would be worth it.

My friend and labelmate planet Jane has a Twitch channel where I make regular appearances, usually alongside fellow Diamondfish artist Silence and Secrecy (aka JHM / Sredni Vashtar) on Fridays. I also run a Discord server named In Search Of..., where my real-life friends and internet buds have converged into this neat little community.

Drop me a line!

The pride and joy of my old page, my avatar machine! Back from the dead (or Darth Wiki, as it were) because I missed it, now with updated pics. :D (Click the folder to turn it on/off.)


     works and other things I love 

     musicians I like 

(because I felt like I needed to have a separate section for this! no particular order, just compiling a list here — a list that is probably doomed to be perpetually incomplete, but a list nonetheless)

    Pages I've launched or Entry Pimped 

     Don't trip over the tropes 
  • Autism: Better believe it.
  • Asexual: Somewhere in the relative area; I'm not completely dismissive of having a relationship with a lady at some point, but it isn't a priority of mine.
  • Black and Nerdy: An example for the textbooks.
  • Blind Without 'Em: I'm nearsighted as fuck! Spent a long time knowing my vision had started to go in my later teens, but didn't bother to get glasses until I was 21.
  • Characterization Marches On: Before I left TVT I was pretty much "that gonzo self-promoting writer dude" and had a tendency to play up my weirder traits; getting older and having taken a break gave me a bit of time to evolve and move past that, though. (I still self-promote, of course, but not to a point where it could be considered a defining character trait as it was before.)
  • Extraverted Nerd: -shrug- Maybe? (At the very least I'm not the Urkelian stereotype this implies.)
  • Fan Nickname: Not really a fan type of thing, but my Rayman fanaticism gave rise to the nickname Treman with my friends. It stuck.
  • I Have Many Names: Most of which are variants of the names Trevor or Tre, neither of which is my legal name but both of which I identify with anyway.
  • Lovable Nerd: Hopefully.
  • Must Have Caffeine: I'm a twentysomething in the 2010s. This is pretty much a given.
  • Myers–Briggs: I'm an INFP.
  • Nerd
  • Proud to Be a Geek: Embrace the nerdery!
  • Put on a Bus: I took a two-year sabbatical from the site between mid-2012 and 2014, coming back during the summer of that year.
  • Self-Deprecation: Old habits die hard.
  • Shout-Out: Frequently pop up in both my works and my overall presentation.
  • Writer's Block: My biggest foe.

Tropes about my music have been moved to Trevor Whatevr.

     and some quick things before you go 
Until next time, tropers. ^_^
