YKTTW workstation thread:

 176 TParadox, Mon, 13th Feb '12 10:27:09 PM Relationship Status: Non-Canon
Don't be the penis.
I have a stalled YKTTW that I'm trying to decide is worth the distinction from You Watch Too Much X.

Think of the mooks!
I have this one which I think is ready to go, but I want a few more opinions before launching it.

I think we should use this thread to improve YKTT Ws that have major problems and are likely to end up in the TRS.

Let The Wookiee Win is likely to end up in the TRS as-is.

Not only does the name (which I personally like) not fit our rules, but I just did a MAJOR edit on the description and would like some input. The description had previously said "Essentially, one character is known for a much more violent form of knocking the board over: don't beat them unless you want to suffer the consequences." No wonder it got so many examples that I did not move to the main post.

[up] Yeah. But one major problem with this thread right now is that the OP appears to have completely abandoned/forgotten this thread, as s/he has ceased updating the first post.

Yeah, the OP was last updated/edited in 2010. Not to mention that I don't think we need to have a "list" as long as the thread is used on a regular basis and people know to look at it.

Well, the updating was for the sake of those who don't have the thread on their watchlist (nor are planning to for any given number of possible jusitifcations, but are interested in helping out anyway), especially those who were new to the thread's idea in the first place. It would save them the effort of having to comb through the entire thread for YKTTW drafts that are still in need of help.

That said, here is a bunch of mine:

Look at what I just made: YKTTW Workstation List

Now YOU can help maintain the list instead of rellying on one person and change it however you like!

Also, I think it could help with the general cleanup. Discard what you think has a clear reason to be discarded and put everything else you care about on that list.

@Marq FJA: You might want to reword the OP for "Tomboy With A Feminine Side". If Akane doesn't count then something clearly isn't getting through (to me at least...maybe that's the problem).
 185 Marq FJA, Wed, 22nd Feb '12 5:05:14 AM from Saudi Arabia Relationship Status: Shipping fictional characters

Akane Tendo doesn't qualify because she is simply a Tomboy whose depiction is much truer to the average real-life tomboy; to quote the Tomboy article:
While Tomboys are subject to Flanderization, according to which they all hate "girly things" (the color pink, dressing up, playing house, shopping), most in real life simply (sometimes unwittingly) happen to fall outside of gender norms in a few respects; aside from these "quirks", a Tomboy might also have "feminine" interests.
Akane never had to hide her femininity from the public (she wears feminine clothes as frequently as most other characters), and is normally a moderately feminine (but still assertive) girl in personality, her being a dedicated martial artist notwithstanding.

That said, how does my recent tweak to the draft look? [1]

I'm trying to put together a trope for the flipside of Covert Pervert; a nice, respectable, non-skeevy character (frequently a teen girl), who nonetheless will openly squee, drool and perv over whatever thing turns her on. I'm having a tough time getting the idea across, and I'm wondering whether it's just that I'm terrible at writing YKTT Ws or if this not common enough of a thing for people to get the drift.

The trope that you describe cannot be the flipside of Covert Pervert as I understand it. Covert Pervert is about a generally polite and/or reserved person who has Hidden Depths of considerable sexual boldness/naughtiness/raunchiness/"pervertedness". Textbook examples: Retsu Unohana (see Bleach on the Beach) and Nodoka Miyazaki (One word: "Saishoudoukin").

[up] "Covert Pervert is about a generally polite and/or reserved person who has Hidden Depths of considerable sexual boldness/naughtiness/raunchiness/"pervertedness"."

Yes, I'm looking for a generally polite and/or reserved person who has totally not hidden elements of sexual boldness/naughtiness/raunchiness/"pervertedness". So a nice, quiet, modest 14 year old girl who lights up like a Christmas tree over the chance at seeing her male cousin crossdress and gets massive nosebleeds when he gets a Panty Shot and has no problem telling her mother (the costume deisgner) all about how his Playboy Bunny suit ought to be pink, not black. But she's still a nice, quiet, modest 14 year old girl.

Seeking for Light
If someone could help me come up with a better name for this YKTTW (Proud, Dark, and Handsome/Proud Handsome Man), it would be much appreciated, as that's the only thing it needs to launch.

Need some name votes on this YKTTW. I want to make sure it gets launched with the best possible name, because it's a fairly widespread trope.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

This is a mess right now. I'm not even sure if I have one genre or two, and what feedback I've been getting indicates that the description needs work and the name even more so.

Technically, you don't really need to have five hats for a launch. It's just a way to guage how much "active" support is for the draft, which isn't entirely accurate or reliable. Many people simply forget the whole feature, others don't come back to check if their suggestions for improving a previously weak draft have been taken, and a myriad of other possible reasons.

Meaningless Acronym sounds too much like Fun with Acronyms for my tastes, especially where the examples are concerned.

I've adopted a YKTTW for "glasses fetish", and it seems about ready to go except for the name. There's a name crowner, but it's not getting many votes. Opinions would be appreciated.

I've brought up this YKTTW eariler in this thread, but I thought I would see if I could get any last minute feedback on it, because the discussion is stalling. My suggestion at this point is to make it an Internal Subtrope.
