Could we just... not have Death anymore?
9:3 in favour of the change. StarSword and I are prepared to do most of the grunt work on the execution. Anyone think we need more time?
I feel like it is too weak of a support for such a major action.

Yeah, 12 votes is not much.

13:4 in favour, now. Weird that we've attracted more votes today than in half a week. waii

Calling for the proposed fixes.

So, has anyone a description for the new trope?

You are of Bajor.
YKTTW is up. Here's what I've got for the current description:
The thing about adaptations and remakes is that they often have to tell the same basic story as the original work in a reduced span of time. Sometimes this leads to stuff being introduced relatively earlier than the original brought them into the picture. This can apply to characters, tech, plots, almost anything, but the basic principle is the same regardless.

This is easier to see when items are introduced in a different order than in the original: whichever item(s) appear first become examples of this trope. This is by no means required, however.

Compare <insert tropes here; I got nothing ATM>.

Is there anything else to do here? This has been gathering dust since September.
This is my signature

Uh, yes. In fact, absolutely nothing from the crowner's actually been done yet.

ETA: Although if we only got one of the three done, the first would obviously be the most important.

Bump. This has been gathering dust since April. Are we going to do something or not?
This is my signature

Has there been a Sandbox for a new description? Like I said in April, if nothing else, that should be the main step taken.

anything done yet?
Don't forget to adjust the laconic and the mentioning of Early-Bird Cameo on Chekhov's Gunman. There may be more related trope pages that still refer to the old definition of Early-Bird Cameo.

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