So far, all I know is that Adult Fear as split feels a bit People Sit on Chairs in my opinion as added realism or giving threats a certain tangibility as a driving point for drama is very common to the point of being an Omnipresent Trope. Then there's if such stuff can mix with more supernatural or magical based concepts not to mention the name which skews slightly towards a weird SciFi Ghettoisation of non-realistic elements in a story and implies childishness if they're not "realistic". This one is a tough trope and somewhat in a grey area but I'm still inviting anyone to look over the sandboxed articles and edit them if there's anything to fix.

Second opinion still requested for Sandbox.Adult Fear and Sandbox.Parental Fear, current issues are getting the sandboxed pages into a working order and questions over if Adult Fear is a trope or not.
A Wizard boyIn order:
I didn't fix that because I figured Wiki Magic would help with that once the gruntwork was done. It didn't so I'll go about rewriting the intro but I invite anyone at all to take a swipe at it. One question though, is it becoming a thing to lead a trope page with a one sentence Laconic version? Parental Fear is primarily about parents worrying about kids in peril and general uselessness to do anything about said kids in peril, like Adult Fear I'll tweak the description so it's clearer. Is Adult Fear manageable? Don't know, it's got a few troubles that Parental Fear being split from it introduces as Parental Fear is far more definable whereas Adult Fear lacked it to the point it needed that split so yeah, most likely does but need more input really.
A Wizard boyThe first sentence laconic definition is a personal preference, so that people get the idea of the trope straightaway. What do you want to leave to Wiki Magic?
Fixing the bits I missed like the description or bad examples and finding a home for the lost ones I couldn't define at the bottom. If Wiki Magic isn't the right term, exchange with wanting the TRS folk to help with the R bit.
A Wizard boyBumping for more attention.
Some nice helping hand stuff while this was fading away. Still need to work out what to do with the uncertain ones at the bottom because if nobody's going to sort them I might just delete them from both.
One problem which is actually a bit too hard to ignore is that a lot of the examples are written in the worst way possible, I can see these moving to Special Projects after this is done just to get rid of the narminess most examples have.

I say we split the tropes. That would be a lot better.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
