I believe that some time ago there was a Self-Demonstrating Article version of this trope written in the form of an explorer's/scientist's log. Does anyone know what happened to it?

...Okay, seeing as how the trope's name has nothing to do with the trope itself, there has to be a Trope Namer. It isn't identified in the description, though, so I'm clueless as to what it is. Can we get someone on this?

(I know, Repair, Don't Respond, but I can't repair because I don't know what the Trope Namer is.)

The trope name is a reference to Fisher King, which is another trope. That one credits the legendarium of King Arthur.

I feel like Silent Hill should have an entry here, but I haven't played much of the games, didn't pay much attention to the movie, and it was years ago that I read the comic book. Rather than just putting in the entry with no description, I'm making this topic first so bigger fans of the franchise can weigh in on the Fisher Kingdom-ness of Silent Hill.

Definitely so. Silent Hill changes to reflect the inner turmoil of the protagonist, as do its inhabitants. Which would make it the Life Link kind, with hints of Physical Warping: the protagonists get randomly teleported into different dimensions or locations and have their clothes changed. The protagonist of Silent Hill: Downpour gets turned into a Humanoid Abomination monster, and back again, during the course of the story.

edit: And I'll just copy-paste this into the examples...
