Needs Help: Protected By A Child get usage counts

This trope really could use some reworking. There's definitely a valid trope here, but it's muddied beneath the poorly written Example as a Thesis description. It basically passes the trope off as an overly specific version of Go Through Me. Also, the YKTTW for this trope only has 5 replies, indicating that it was rush-launched. That seems to be the main problem here: the trope simply wasn't cooked enough.

It's got plenty of examples and it looks like it was cross-wicked at launch. I think just re-working the description is all that's needed here.

At it's core, the trope seems to be "character can't bring himself to kill another character because a) a child would witness it or b) a child would have to be harmed to do so."
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.
Wow. This thread died fast.

Aaaaaaaand there's just not enough interest here.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
