The Real Life sections refers to some actors as aversions and some as subversions when it's the same scenario: child star becomes a successful adult.

For the sake of consistency, I want to fix it, but which should it be? I wanna go with aversion (Real Life does not set up tropes to subvert) but I'm not sure.

Most of them should be aversions, I'd think— a subversion might be someone who looked like they were going to turn into the stereotypical train wreck but actually got beyond it (Drew Barrymore being the best example here).
