Misused: Slap Slap Kiss get usage counts

What do mean?

Please specify which ones you don't agree with since my perusal shows they are about actual slapping and kissing.

Actually, looking at it again I realize that I was misreading which assessments applied to which examples - they are correct. Though I'd bet actual money that most if not all of the "unclear" examples are incorrect: what you're calling "no context" is mostly cases of "this relationship is like this", which fits with the confusion with Belligerent Sexual Tension.

No, the other one.
If it actually ends up with kissing (or more), is it really Belligerent Sexual Tension? Isn't that when they dance around that with fighting and stuff?

Based on the discussion in this thread, here's a crowner. I have not added renaming to the crowner since I don't see a strong case for that, but if you can make one, feel free to put it on the crowner anyway.

Special trousers. Very heroic.
Most of those 'unclear' ones looked wrong to me. This trope is a specific moment, not something that happens all the time in a relationship.

Would it perhaps be more feasible to redirect this trope to Belligerent Sexual Tension (or vice versa) and relaunch the page this is supposed to be?

Belligerent Sexual Tension has 17999 inbounds.

"Redirect and relaunch" is basically "merge, then go to YKTTW for another page".

And yes, BST is much bigger/prominent than SSK.

Crowner's hooked.
I added two options. I'm against simply merging the two tropes and leaving it at that.

Downvoted the YKTTW option.

I'd like to point out that eliminating this trope page would be a grave mistake.

This is a trope that has been around since at least 1938: Witness this clip.

It has also commented on in various media, quite far from just movie critics. So it is a well known trope with the general public: http://shoemoneytonight.tumblr.com/post/9252827994/via-dinosaur-comics-t-rex-knows-whats-up

As for the name. I suppose we could rename it, though the only thing I can think of that could be clearer is to add "Scene" on the end. However, I do think this is the pre-existing name for it. Do we have any film students or professionals out there reading the thread? Is this a standard term for this kind of thing or not?

[up] If you think this is a preexisting term, you should give us some proof of that.

If it's a preexisting term, it's not a common enough one to compensate for how easy it apparently is to misunderstand.

Too many inbounds to change for this weak a reason. Also... 13 people voting is not enough participation to determine anything.

You need to Get Known to get one of those.
