Needs Help (supertrope titles crowner 3/9/14): Wet Sari Scene get usage counts

[up][up]Wet Sari Scene is a bad name for it because this trope is not exclusive to Bollywood and saris. The trope name implies that it is a trope within one specific genre, which it is not.

As stated on the last page the options we have so far are

Rename

Trope Transplant to new name, and make Wet Sari Scene a Sub-Trope.

Leave as is

Another option is to keep the name, but expand the definition. Even if saris are an Indian clothing item, it's reasonably well known.

That's probably the least-work solution.

Reclocking; has anything been done with this yet?
Doesn't look like it yet.

I think we might need a crowner for alternative titles. I'd quite like Wet Look Fanservice.

I'd be fine with either of those, but I lean toward Wet Clothing Fanservice...any ideas beyond these?

Definitely not a weirdo
If I were the type of person to overuse alliteration, I would suggest Sexy Soaked Shirt.

[up]...that's actually pretty clever. [tup] Even if it doesn't become the name, I'd be fine with making it a redirect.

[up][up] Sounds good to me.

[up][up][up] I quite like it as well, even if it's not entirely alliterative (s-s-sh).

+1 to Sexy Soaked Shirt
Yeah, I guess we need to pick a new name and transplant the current trope there, and then make Wet Sari Scene a subtrope.

I'm fine with either Sexy Soaked Shirt Scene or Wet Colthing Fanservice

Calling crowner for Sexy Soaked Shirt.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

OK, I'm willing to do the work on this trope. "To do" list:

I've added the star to this thread; how's the work coming?
I have to apologize. I'm quite busy in RL and cannot do much wiki work... Hopefully it gets better soon.

Finally I have some time for nice little troping. cool

EDIT: There is another draft related to these tropes, Kiss in the Rain.

OK, most work is done. I've done the clean-up (from about 200 wicks to 25 that should be ok). Sexy Soaked Shirt is cross-wicked sufficiently.

However, I don't much like the Example As Thesis at the beginning of the description. I think it should be trimmed or cut.

Alternative Titles: Wet Sari Scene
9th Mar '14 7:29:43 PM
Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
Deciding on a name for the supertrope that Wet Sari Scene will branch off from.
