Still new. Still learning. Asking questions and making mistakes.

One last voting bump.

Calling the crowner in favor of expanding the trope.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Reopening per request.
My request, FYI. I'll work on a draft for a replacement description and post sometime tonight or tomorrow night. Once I get comments and such, I'll replace the current.

If it matters, I agree with the leading crowner option.
Here's my draft for the main part of the description:

A Domino Revelation occurs when the revelation of a previously hidden truth leads to another revelation, then another, like the knocking over of dominoes. Often evoked in fantasy works, where the revelation that one mythological or legendary species exists leads to finding out that many more also do, and works featuring conspiracy theories, where finding the shadowy figures behind a seemingly minor crime opens up a vista of sinister plots all emanating from the same source.

My main concern is figuring out new related tropes for the next paragraphs, since all the ones given in the current description assume this trope specific to The Masquerade and all that. Thoughts?

No, the other one.
I'd suggest something like this. I prefer the first sentence on its own, since that emphasises the definition. It's really a simple trope, so I don't think we need a particularly long description.

To help with visibility, it can perhaps be included in links from other more popular page descriptions.

All Myths Are True is a common end result when all dominoes have fallen. May overlap with The Masquerade or The Conspiracy where the protagonist is introduced to their secrets.

No, the other one.
Are there situations other than those where it might pop up? Outside The Masquerade, The Conspiracy, and All Myths Are True?

I'm also adding it to The Secret Index.

Those are probably the two most significant. Ummm... Love Dodecahedron, maybe?

I guess there's the one where one person's secret getting spilled causes a string of confessions from everyone else. Or like what happens in this Cracked video here.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

No, the other one.
I don't think those are significant to add. That video should be an example, though.

So, objections or revisions before putting it up?

[up][up][up][up] Ooh, I like the pointing out of the romantic plot as another possible source. If not Love Dodecahedron, exactly, then some other similar.

Slight revision with a bit about romance, then:


A Domino Revelation occurs when the revelation of a previously hidden truth leads to another revelation, then another, like the knocking over of dominoes.

Often evoked in fantasy works, where the revelation that one mythological or legendary species exists leads to finding out that many more also do, and works featuring conspiracy theories, where finding the shadowy figures behind a seemingly minor crime opens up a vista of sinister plots all emanating from the same source. In romance, one confession can often lead the way to one or several more.

All Myths Are True is a common end result when all dominoes have fallen. May overlap with The Masquerade or The Conspiracy where the protagonist is introduced to their secrets.

Let's get this done. I think [up] looks okay to me. If no one has any objections, I'm gonna cut, paste, and holler (sounds like a seamstress cheerleader).

Oh, right, there was this one... We've already gone through the asking for objections part, with stalling as a result, so I'm updating with the last description proposal.

Is there anything more to be done, or can we just finally lock it and be done?

Fortunately, since the narrower definition is part of the new, expanded definition, and vice versa, we don't need to check for misuse.

I don't think there's anything else...?
49 AnotherDuck2nd Apr 2013 10:12:33 AM from Stockholm , Relationship Status: In season
No, the other one.
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. It's far less problematic to expand a trope than narrow it down.

Hollering for lock.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
