Because there wasn't an option for 'Near Identical Title.'

Windowstothe Soul deals with eye colours signifying elemental alignment.

Windows of the Soul deals with eyes conveying emotion.

Rename is obviously in order. Something to the point like Elemental Eyes should work.

Also, minor nitpick, the title is also formatted incorrectly. Trope titles are supposed to have each word capitalized.
Don't we already have Elemental Eye Colors?

No, the other one.
So we've gone from duplicate name with one trope to duplicate trope with another. Fun. Made worse by Windows of the Soul actually using the phrase "windows to the soul" more than once.

I think the description of Windows to the Soul is a bit vague and indecisive about what it really is. Elemental powers? Elemental association? Personality? Alignment? Seems kind of like a Super Trope of the Meaningful Eye Colours kind of thing, sort of like Common Eye Colors.

Also a little too eager to point out that some colours are common for Mary Sue characters.

[up][up]So we do. On closer inspection it seems Windowstothe Soul is actually more about eye colour indicating personality type. However the elemental affinity references are an obvious focus (extending to the page image). Also, dont we already have a list of eye colour tropes that go into associated personality types? Is this trope even necessary?

EDIT: Ninja'd

No, the other one.
I haven't checked that thread, but aren't the eye colour tropes going through the appearance trope clean up project? Anyone knows where Common Eye Colors stands there?

We haven't quite gotten to Common Eye Colours, but it's on the list. There are a lot of appearance tropes and they're all a mess.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Maybe we shouldn't worry about this and let the appearance trope clean up project take care of it, but it looks to me like the best thing to do is to cut Windows to the Soul and then we don't have a duplicate name or trope.

Not so. The link was included for reference purposes only. It is pretty closely linked to what we're working on now, so it's probably best if we keep it in that thread.

No worries. The wording was ambiguous. Anyway, locking this and directing all interest to the appearance trope thread.

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