Query about the following. If this was Actor Allusion wouldn't it mean that the reason Casey and her mother are singing the song be because something happened in their lives that the lyrics are connected to? As far as I know, they duet the song because they happen to be a mother/daughter singing team, which gives extra characterisation to a song that's about a mother and daughter. Wouldn't that be the opposite of the Actor Allusion trope?

Actor Allusion:
  • The full version of "Red Like Roses Part II" turns out to be a duet between singer Casey Lee Williams and her mother Sandy Lee Casey. This leads to quite a bit of Reality Subtext in the song itself.

Brought to the Discussion page the following What Could Have Been entries; no matter how calmly worded any example might be, the source is biased, unverified and this wiki has rules about importing drama. No matter what the truth of Shane's letter may or may not be, using its contents on this wiki would be importing drama. I think the wisest course of action is for all of us to avoid trying to pull any tropes out of his letter.

  • According to Shane's letter, Volume 3 would have had:
    • Raven was supposed to fight Team JNPR suddenly in a cafe, her reasons unknown.
    • Winter Schnee was supposedly designed with Monty's wife in mind for both design and voice.
    • Yang vs. Adam was supposed to happen in Volume 3 and not be the life-altering Curb-Stomp Battle it ended up being.
    • Pyrrha vs. Cinder would have ended with Jaune entering the battle and, because of his inexperience, cause Pyrrha to die, turning Pyrrha's death into a Stuffed In The Fridge moment and making it Jaune's I Let Gwen Stacy Die moment instead of Ruby's Traumatic Superpower Awakening moment.

I agree, we can't use part of the letter without triggering the flame bait that goes with it.

Can we leave the Flame Bait aspects of Shane's letter out of this page? His claims are currently unfounded and very clearly biased.

Agreed. I think it's best if fans don't go looking for any tropes in that letter and leave it as an issue the individual and his former employer need to work out between them.
