Ambiguous Name (New Alt Names crowner 10/5/2015): Mac Guffin Girl get usage counts

Troper B: This would work better if it's a trope for a character who isn't necessarily in distress, just sought after. Basically a Living MacGuffin.
Troper C: Note that the example you started with wasn't really in immediate danger.
Troper D: (Also, Trope Namer Syndrome.)
Troper A: Good points. *launch as Living MacGuffin* I guess you could ask the original sponsor about it if you really wanted (he's still around), but I don't think it's ambiguous. (A princess who everyone wants is a Living Macguffin, so that's not a contradiction.)

- The title is perfect for the supertrope we want.
- The examples and wicks all universally match the definition of the supertrope we want.
- Everyone already assumes it means the same thing as the supertrope we want.
- The current description is so close to the supertrope we want that it needs only a few minor tweaks to the syntax to get it where it needs to be.
- The current description is wonky and poorly-written enough that it needs to be rewritten no matter what we do.
- It has hundreds of wicks and inbounds already.
