Clock is set; was anything ever done with this?

Slightly modifying an old post:

Tropes are ready at Sandbox.Adoptive Peer Parent, Sandbox.Supernaturally Young Parent, or Sandbox.Mum Looks Like Your Sis (which will be named Mum Looks Like A Sister when launched). I'll swap them in, with the subtropes listed on Absurdly Youthful Mother as:

But before that, we still need to decide on whether to do a disambiguation/index, or a supertrope. Do we need a crowner, or can we just go with it?

I am still in support of supertrope, for the record.
Bump again. I'm also still in support of a supertrope. Can we please just do that, or do we need another crowner?

I'm good with a supertrope.
I'm gonna give it another hour for people to voice dissent, then I'll go with the supertrope. This has been waiting way too long.
Swapped the sandboxes in, moved the examples on Absurdly Youthful Mother to appropriate subpages, and left those that didn't have a subpage on the main page. Now we just have the fun part left: The wicks.

Willbyr, can you change the thread title to something along the lines of "Wick cleanup"?

[up] Done. [tup]
How is this not Playing Gertrude?

Absurdly Youthful Mother is character age. Playing Gertrude is actress age.

Both result in someone who looks much to young to be the mother, but one is In-Universe and the other is just a casting issue.
[up] Fair enough. But then we have a case of misuse at hand. For Absurdly Youthful Mother to apply (and not Playing Gertrude) the age of the too-young character must be verifiable within the story (e.g. daughter is second grade and mother mentions she is 26). Otherwise it is only a perceptional "looking too young" for the role which is Playing Gertrude. This can be attributed to miscasting or poor drawing skills for non-live action. In any case, the character is probably meant to be older than appears. When I go through the examples, I see a lot of examples (Film, TV, Video Games) that talk about the young look of the character without a reference to an actual "absurdly young age" stated in the story.

Umm, what is happening with the current on-page examples?
They count as examples of the supertrope, as they don't fit into the subtropes.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Mum Looks Like Your Sis

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:
