How did you first come across TVTropes?:
I don't remember the details, but I was browsing the pokemon forums on GameFAQs, and someone linked to an article on T Vtropes. I don't remember wich one, but someoone on the forums mentioned reading the entire "glitch city article". I imputed 'glitch city' iinto the search box on tvtropes and got to the LONG pokemon nightmare fuel page. from then on, I visited tvtropes often. Yes, I did become addicted to T Vtropes because of reading about the hidden horror in pokemon.

The names of the electrical charges really ought to be swapped. It is just DUMB that the place with MORE electrons is NEGATIVELY charged.
Too much adorableness
Irregular Webcomic!...funnily enough after I saw TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life article the first time I quit the site (only a day or 2 after I started visiting the site)...then I came back afterfor some reason I started thinking about the site again... It feels funny to realize the IW linked to this site even before The Great Crash...

Am binging yuri.
I think it was the Nationstates forum. I remember hearing about TV Tropes from there, anyway.

Thunder, Perfect Mind
I was looking up information on the cassette release Baby Sex by The Residents; their page here was one of the first results. Love at first sight, mang.
Princess of Hell
I was linked here by someone on Game FAQS. That was in July 2010, but I didn't join until the middle of August.
Okay, who put the dead dragon in my bed?
I was looking through the Game FAQS Fallout 3 message boards and I found a link to Oh Crap!. I didn't actually enter the forums until a couple months later though.

Came across Staff Chick article when browsing on various forums (can't remember where I found it exactly).
Mystical Monkey Master
link from another forum
I was looking for writing advice for a story (specifically advice about writing a believable romance). I don't remember which page I started on, but I think I read every romance trope before my Wiki Walk took me elsewhere. I never did complete that story . . .
Group project in creative writing class. One of my classmates sent me there to look up some terms.

I changed accounts.
Linked to some trope from some writing forum wiki probably. Found myself hooked to reading tropes. Then noticed that there was a forum and was immediately like "hey! I like forums!" "hey, I've never been on a fourm; what's it like?" and joined.
I am now known as Flyboy.
I think I got here through a random link in the Final Fantasy Wiki. Interestingly, while I've known about this place since before the famous "lampshade-T" logo, I didn't sign up for a wiki account for a while longer. Can't remember the date, but I've been here a while now... it's been one hell of a fun ride so far.

Saw a thread about it on another site; looked like a barrel of laughs.
All I do, is sit down at the computer, and start hittin' the keys. Getting them in the right order, that's the trick.
Beware the Crazy Man.
Final Fantasy, Foreign Policy, and Bollywood. Helluva combo, that...
I've long forgotten why I was doing that, but I found the wiki while googling for information about the Xylophone Gag. So, I was actually looking for a trope.

I was checking out Irrel's AU (http://irrel.deviantart.com/gallery/14180) and found her gushing about ending up on Tv Tropes, I googled it and...here I am.
