So I got a YKTTW up for an emotional eater which is a person after a fight or gets stressed they ear (like Drowning My Sorrows but for food) there is some question of their relationship and overlap with sister tropes.

Any help in there would be greatly appreciated.grin

Comfort Food is the more common term for that sort of thing I believe.

[up] Try Lost and Found for that kind of question.

This YKTTW needs some assistance to distinguish it from Nightmare Fuel and also to prevent from taking up its problems.

The stealth guy!

laconic: the go to guy for sneaking around

we seem to lack a trope for general stealth people.

Can anyone come up with a better name for Level Up, Speed Up? I'm concerned because most of the examples don't actually have levels.
Rhymes with "Protracted."
I'm currently making a YKTTW, Rock of Limitless Water, that could really use some more related tropes to cement its place as to where it fits. Also, another index or two if possible, as well as a better name - it's plenty clear, but it's neither concise nor witty.
The work on Loads and Loads of Races is languishing for lack of YKTTW attention. I am here to request help, since I don't know jack about YKTTW.

Loads and Loads of Races had missing supertrope syndrome. The original games-only definition has been transplanted to the new subtrope Massive Race Selection (which could use a better description and needs example sorting by somebody familiar with both video games and tabletop games — knowing only the latter, I did the best I could, but...)

Loads and Loads of Races itself is now the name of the new supertrope, which is not medium-specific. It needs more feedback about the description, more hats, and more details about the examples. Some of them are game examples, and I need somebody familiar with those games to make certain they are not actually examples of the subtrope.

All help appreciated.

I think this is the link:

Unfettered Hero Needs More Examples, and please check if you like the description and name while you're there.

Much appreciated!

Could use name suggestions and/or votes on the name deciding crowner for No Such Thing as a Deprecated Weapon.

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

To keep up with [up][up] also take a look at this YKTTW since they're part of a concentrated effort.

I'd like some help with and attention given a YKTTW I posted a couple days ago

Horror's Key Keeper


I think it needs work before it's ready, (and probably one or two more examples). I'm actually not certain what it needs, I just know it needs work. The description probably needs improving, could anyone give some assistance?

Would like to get more hands for the "Internal Game System" YKTTW:


I started it after a TRS decision, and it seems to have stalled—I'd add to it, but I have nothing of value to add.

Settling the Frontier is close to launchable, but I'd really like to have more anime, film, and western animation examples before sending it out the door, as well as more historical examples (got plenty of Speculative Fiction).
Speaking words of fandom: let it squee, let it squee.
Under The Colonial Yoke needs a name, and probably something else.
Animal Interaction Parallel:Sometimes an animal (or two animals) can be symbolic of the relationship(s) between two or more characters (humans or anthropomorphized animals) in a work. If the characters are human, these animals will generally be their pets, but in works of fantasy it's not uncommon for the characters to be transformed into animals and have to work together to return to safety and human form, learning more about each other along the way. Can be case of Truth in Television in that pets' behaviour tends to reflect their masters' moods.

Related to What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?. Subtrope of Animal Motifs.

After several billion suggestions, it still Needs a Better Title

I put up a YKTTW called Surprisingly Bad English. Needs More Examples and some feedback would also be appreciated.

Sliding Scale of Eye Detail. An attempt to classify broad, cross-cultural patterns in how human eyes are drawn, along with what sorts of characters have which style. Grew out of the TRS thread on Tsurime; I realized we needed supertropes, and this is intended to be a start.

What I don't know is how to format it, and where to put examples (if any; I put in one example to illustrate each level). Pics might also help.
