Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I've never understood the "Hufflepuff's are particularly good finders!" joke.

Should these be moved to Web Original perhaps?

with the inevitable 'AVP3quel', shouldn't we think about giving the shows their own individual pages?

Am I the only one who thinks there needs to be a section for tropes that are used in both musicals? It would streamline this page a great deal.

(I'm brand new, so I don't know if this was addressed before. If it was, bear with me.)

Why was the bomb sandwich addressed as a Big Lipped Alligator Moment? It was for the sake of a joke, and a bit of foreshadowing to Snape killing Dumbledore.

Delete it. These people don't understand what the trope means.

what happened to the mention of the Foe Yay/Ho Yay between Ron & Snape?

Probably moved to a YMMV tab.

Except that this page doesn't have one of those tabs.

  • During the Pensieve Flashback in the "Guys Like Potter" number, Lily flirts with James Potter and accepts a date with him... Right after he tormented Snape (and before Snape called her "Mudblood").  *

Kick the Dog is a cruel action meant to show a character as villainous. Team Starkid was not trying to expose Lily's jerkass nature. This was a JOKE. A single joke meant to parody the All Girls Want Bad Boys fallacy. All the characters have jerkass lines for the sake of being funny. If that counts as kicking the dog, then Ron and Dumbledore would have kicked the dog to death before intermission.

Lily is not meant to be a villainous character. The whole Snape/Lily storyline was done as a parody of the "Nice Guy" mindset, and demonizing Lily here is Completely Missing the Point. While Snape was portrayed sympathetically, being a self-described "Nice Guy" is not a desirable thing.

The 'Throw It In' for Voldemort's killing people line at the end of AVPM... I've heard that they changed that line for every show, and that's the one that worked best. So it isn't a throw-it-in. But that's just what I've heard. Is there any proof it was improvised?

I changed the page image to the AVPM cartoon art — it just seemed appropriate. But if people don't like it, I can restore the original.

If I want to list AVPM or AVPS as an example on a trope page, should I put it under Theatre or Web Original?

Most people put it under Theatre

what Tropes would apply to the following two scenes?

1) Hermione gives Harry & Ron a wrapped gift that is quite obviously a book, but they think it might be a puppy

2) Seamus using himself as a footstool for Harry, and a bench for Cho

3) Draco casually admitting that he's a racist who hates the Irish, gingers, mudbloods, and Gryffindor house, before asking Harry if he wants to be friends

Hm! I don't know if any of those are tropes...yet. Might want to check Lost and Found. Otherwise, try proposing them on YKTTW. Possible titles-

1) Obvious Object Could Be Anything 2) Human Footstool (Human Furniture would be broader) 3) Proud To Be A Bigot

3) Could be a parody of Designated Villain.

why was every single edit I made just undone? all I was doing was moving examples of the second play out of the list of tropes of the first one

Happened to me, too. ^ It's probably some sort of glitch.

That said, you simply deleted a lot of those examples instead of moving them to the lower section, so people are bound to restore them regardless of whether they're in the right place; it's valid material that belongs on the page.

I was going to move them, but my 20 minutes had expired

Okay, is there any particular reason every single edit I just made was reverted? Including fixing a typo?

I'm going to assume it was an accident or some kind of glitch. Perhaps some of that was intentional reversion on grounds of a bad edit. However, seeing as even perfectly rational edits were reversed, I don't know which of my edits were reverted because they were bad and which were just reverted blindly.

I'm kind of inclined to just blindly restore all of those edits. Should I?

Okay, never mind. It looks like an accident, so I'll just assume it was one. If it wasn't, well, we can work that out later.

Would anyone who knows what stuff was cut for the YouTube version care to elaborate on the nature of these scenes/jokes? I think it would not be an unwarranted addition to the show's page.

What would that entail, exactly? The 'nature' of those scenes were that they contained dirty humour. What else would you like us to say?

It was just a handful of dirty comments like when the Trio is squished under the invisibility cloak there's a joke about how Ron's wand is poking Harry, then Hermione says "Shh! Someone's coming!" and Ron says "It's not me I swear!" So nothing particularly important. The only one that really made a difference was when Dumbledore was talking about his love for Snape he says if a snake bit him he would suck the poison, even if it bit him in the wiener. They left the follow up to the joke near the end of the play, but it's funnier with that set up joke earlier on.

Why is Ginny called a Manic Pixie Dream Girl on both the main troper page and the character tropes page— both with the explaination that she can be "A little spacey, at times." When does she open Harry up to the great, wonderful adventure of life? Did I miss something?
