TRS discussion on Woobie isn't finished yet, is it?

You have got to be kidding me. The Woobie is enough of a gargantuan mess as it is without making something like this.

I honestly want to say 'cut this'.

I'm not really sure it's all that different from Crapsack World "but I feel sorry for everyone"! Hm.

Yeah, this seems quite redundant.

No, the other one.
A Crapsack World filled with sympathetic characters. This would be a separate trope if Crapsack World directly implied crapsack characters.

However, I could also see it as a subtrope of Crapsack World, but then we'd need to move all examples of World Of Woobie from Crapsack World to World Of Woobie, as duplicate examples would be extraneous. Considering the size of Crapsack World, it may be an idea to split off subtropes from it. It should probably also fall under White and Grey Morality or White And Black Morality. If there's no significant white side, it's not the right trope.

[up] I agree with all. Crapsack World needs to be splited. As for this one, I have to ask: is it really an arguable trope ? I highly doubt about this one.

[up]I disagree - as things stand, Crapsack World is not limited solely to cases where all the characters are unlikeable, and since there's already tropes for that I see no reason to split this.

As for this, I say cut it. We do not need more Woobie tropes, especially ones that are as dubious as this.

I assume that we now delete the wicks (or move them to more appropriate tropes ad hoc) and cutlist this?

Hacked away the wicks, except for the subjective indexes and the locked YMMV.Wreck It Ralph.

Did the locked one and the redirect. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
