I wonder how did people ever find their way into tvtropes when its almost unheard off to begin with. For me I never knew anything about tropes or tvtropes before.

I found tvtropes when I was reading stuff on Gundam in wikipedia, then when I read Tomino's page I clicked the link that says Kill 'em All. Then I found myself into tvtropes.

How did you found tvtropes?

I was browsing the Battleships Forever forum, and spotted someone linking to Rule of Cool on here. Followed the link, browsed around, and the rest is history.

A webcomic called Frederick the Great linked to Historical Villain Upgrade (or was it hero upgrade? Not 100% sure) in its funny comments under the comic pages. That was mid 2008. And thus an addiction was born. Huzzah!

See ALL the stars!
I can't remember how, but the first page I found was Raised by Wolves. It was possibly on a Dr. Who forum, because I vaguely remember it having something to do with The Sarah Jane Adventures.
Da Rules excuse all the inaccuracy in the world. Listen to them, not me.
I was on GameFAQs reading a forum thread when someone linked to The AI Is A Cheating Bastard.
This post is called, "We hate you, please die."
I was searching for my favorite movie quote ever: "But for Me, It Was Tuesday". Guess what popped up?

Fairly sure it was a Wikipedia link, but it's so long ago that I can't remember the page. I didn't really get what the site was about, though, and I just browsed a few articles and left.

I rediscovered it shortly afterwards while Googling terms used in my media studies class. I started using this site to help me understand the course.

All the Webcomics. Every single one.

About three years ago, now. Took me that long to be bored enough to enter the forums.

I was on Game FA Qs reading a forum thread when someone linked to The AI Is A Cheating Bastard.

Same here except with a different trope. I was browsing the Cartoons and Animation board and came across a topic about the annoying amount if fat, lazy, stupid husbands/dads in cartoons with a link to either Lazy Husband or Bumbling Dad (I can't remember which). I'd seen links to this "Tv Tropes" thing before, but never actually followed the links. This time, though, I decided to check it out.

I got in and was reading when I saw a link to another page. Thinking it to be harmless I decided to open another tab and read on. We all know how the rest of the story goes.

I was looking for information on Devil Survivor and tvtropes was one of the links that popped up. At first I was like "What the hell is this shit??" but I warmed up to it.

I was googling for tsundere, doesn't know what it is at that time. That was last year.
Can you trust a future people talking about fish when you are hungry?

I found it through the Spiderweb Software forums, which have several tropers on them.

I found it sometime online, then forgot about it.

Then a friend re-showed it to me and I've been around since then.

I never did decide whether to kill him or thank him.

I got home one night and my older brother would not stop bugging me to look at this awesome website he'd found tongue First page I ever read was Deadpan Snarker. That was a few years ago.

I think that he found the site while looking for a Deus Ex walkthrough.

Remember that grand list of console RPG cliches and the list of things a realistic evil overlord would do? I tried to find an anime version of that cliches list and after finding a few and feeling unsatisfied, I accidentally stumbled upon this place.

I submitted "Hurt/Comfort" into a search engine. I thought it was a comedy site at first.

A link from the Giant In The Playground forums. It was to either Pet or Kick the Dog, I forget which.

I googled something (I think it was an anime series, but I'm not sure) and this link was one of the top ones. By clicking on the link I passed the event horizon.
A poster from the Sluggy Freelance forum wouldn't stop linking to This Wiki. What can i say? I fell hard for the Schmuck Bait.

I googled something to do with awesome moments in Harry Potter and the rest is history.

Was bored at work and found that this was a fun site that government computers don't block.

I found a link to Xanatos Gambit. Fitting as in hindsight I think it was a Xanatos Gambit by the wiki to get me over here.
