tropes. I know these days they're politely called 'Artistic License', but in many cases the creators shouldn't be allowed to hide behind the 'artistic license' excuse.

Added DiffLines:

** ScrewedByTheNetwork: Can be summed up by a clueless network executive thinking "I don't get this show. Better make sure this show gets cancelled so I don't take the fall if it fails." And I HATE when this happens.

Added DiffLines:

* TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong: Don't get me started on the whole 'groupthink is good, thinking for yourself is bad' thing. Granted, the complainer shouldn't always be ''right'', either, but when this trope is played straight, it's very, very disturbing.

Added DiffLines:

* MyNameIsInigoMontoya: RuleOfCool, mostly.

* PaintingTheFourthWall: It can enhance the experience somewhat.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: It's nice that some people have principles.


Added DiffLines:

* ViewersAreMorons: I hate it when producers treat the viewers like idiots.
* VoicesAreMental: Really, really annoying when people actually treat it like the voices have somehow swapped. I have ''never'' liked this trope, and consider it a subtrope of ViewersAreMorons.


On the other side, there are tropes I ''despise''. These are my [[PetPeeveTrope Pet Peeve Tropes]], which I will certainly take pains to avoid playing straight in works of fiction I might create. These are tropes that I feel should be subverted, defied, or just averted whenever possible:

* YoYoPlotpoint: Writers shouldn't unresolve plot points that were already satisfactorily resolved unless their story is set in a different continuity then the story where the points were resolved.
* Most of the 'You Fail' tropes.


* WomenInRefrigerators: Granted, a character being StuffedInTheFridge just to piss off the protagonist is something that's pretty tired regardless of gender, but when a whole bunch of female characters end up this way, there's some pretty UnfortunateImplications here.

it pisses off just about anyone who'd rather see women as actual characters in the stories and not just plot devices.


* TrueArtIsAngsty: This is a fallacy that has resulted in a number of really bad works of fiction.
