Alright, I removed tropes that went against Creator Page Guidelines, specifically these points:

What should not go on creator pages:

  • Tropes applied to the creator as if they are a fictional character. Please resist the urge to apply character tropes to Real Life people. We've had a lot of Square Peg, Round Trope issues in the past with this, so as a general guideline, it's best to apply No Real Life Examples, Please! to creators. If it seems harmless, it might be overlooked Just for Fun, and there is an exception for Conversational Troping as mentioned above, but on the whole this is something best avoided.
  • Tropes that apply to individual works they've created. Any tropes listed should be relevant to their work as a whole, not to just one work. So if a trope only applies to one work they've made, please list it on that work's page instead.
  • Drooling. In the past, we've had pages for actresses that consisted primarily of gushing about how hot they are. This is not okay. It's inappropriate and will not be tolerated.

I may have missed some, but if I wrongfully removed any, please bring the point here instead of adding it back in. Thanks!

  • Cute Shotaro Boy: Though he's older than the usual instances, he does look it at times.
    Colfer: Yeah, and honestly, I hate being so young because I feel like those are the kind of questions I never get asked. Usually people ask us, “Who’s your favorite Jonas brother?” rather than “What were you feeling in this scene?”

One, Cute Shotaro Boy has been renamed to Adorably Precocious Child. Two, this trope is highly misused and this example suggests that it does not apply; please check the definition at Adorably Precocious Child before re-adding.

Isn't this a little premature? As an actor, Colfer has not yet built a body of work outside of Glee, and doesn't warrant his own page more than any other tv actor in their first big role. In fact, he and Amber Riley have the least professional experience out of the original cast. This page sounds more like a love letter to him than anything else.

No such thing as notability? I do agree it's a little OTT in its fawning, though.

Except that he's big in the (very large) fandom. Really, really big. No such thing as notability and all that, but honestly he IS a very notable figure in today's popular culture.

I still have the image of a group of people circle jerking to a giant portrait of Chris Colfer while reading his trope page.
