Cleaning up the Glasses Threads:

Is this thread still live? Have we ever figured out what to do with meganekko? It's become "girls with glasses in anime" and is rapidly become "girls with glasses in anything", or even "characters with glasses in anything"; I just saw the Doctor from Dr Who on there.

I see the Awesomeness.
Advice would be to turn it into a fanspeak term with lampshades/mentions only. Or make a Meganekko Fetishist or something for characters that explicitly prefer them.

I put meganekko in TRS.

I have also axed the examples on megane (which seemed to be a popular choice), and am thinking of deleting the wicks to it in work trope lists on the grounds of not being a trope (except where they explicitly refer to the term, for example, in character nicknames). Opinions?

Nerd Glasses launched, needs to be crosswicked. Real Life is biting me, I'll try to get to it later or tomorrow.

Sorry, for being absent on this thread, I lost interest. Anyway you don't really need to crosswick, the trope still kept it's 616 wicks. However, I will move Nerd Glasses wicks that are actually Opaque Nerd Glasses to that trope. Are there any other tropes that need fixing?
