Technically a Smile is when the narration (or narrator, in the case of first-person) notes that the mere fact of baring one's teeth doesn't necessarily make a "smile", in the sense of an expression designed to convey friendliness, happiness or harmlessness.
Humans are one of the few creatures to bare their teeth as anything other than a threat; this trope comes into play during those times when a "smile" conveys something more... animalistic. Look for the phrase "didn't reach his/her eyes" to appear.
Alright, it's a race to the bottom of the page. Let's see who's faster: Boys in one team, Girls in the other. First team to get there wins the title of "Best Gender" for all eternity. On your marks, get set, go!
Yes, it seems the men and women of fiction are always fighting. They're from two different planets, and all that, and with their differences always comes a lot of tension...often romantic tension, but still, tension nonetheless. And, of course, nobody wants to admit that the other "side" might just be better than they are. So how better to settle it than a proper competition?
