1Frodobatmanvader is a full-fledged, life-ruined troper. A father of one, and a husband (also of one), I stumbled upon T Vtropes when I was poking around Google for Sci-Fi cliches and haven't been the same since. I am fond of [[{{Pothole}} potholes]], wish that I could have a TVtropes Dictionary (that would automatically update, of course), and wish that I could convert all of my friends and family to this site.²²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:Image Pickin's I've Been Involved With:]]²[[AC:Found Pictures For]]²I love finding images for tropes. You're always bound to see my participation in a dozen or so ImagePickin Conversations at any given time.²* [[Webcomic/AlienLovesPredator AlienLovesPredator]]: Right before I made this entry, in fact.²* CryonicsFailure: formerly "Popsicle Splat."²* CosmicHorrorStory: I feel it's my personal CrowningMomentOfAwesome, if I may be so bold.²* EternalEngine: Currently in the midst of this discussion here: [[ !!]]²* {{Grendel}}²* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "Hey, Oscar Wylde- It's ''clobberin' time!''²²[[AC:Edited Found Pics/Suggested Captions:]]²* DullEyesOfUnhappiness: Cropped the two pics together, and my suggested caption was actually chosen. Yay!²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Tropes that apply to {{ThisTroper}}:]]²* ActualPacifist²* AddictionDisplacement: My weapon of choice against my obsessive personality.²* AllWorkVsAllPlay: My wife and I, at times.²* ApologizesALot²* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: To the point that I have yet to finish a single story.²* AttentionDeficitOohShiny²* [[BrilliantButLazy Brilliant but la--]]²* ConversationalTroping²* HappilyMarried²* JadeColoredGlasses²* NinjaEditor: It's rare site to see a post I've made that doesn't feature the "edited on..." footnote.²* PickyEater: My whole life, I've had issues with the texture of most fruits. Yes, the whole food group.²* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: More so verbally than textually.²* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Graham crackers & milk! (tm)²* TheMovieBuff: A bit rusty since fatherhood happened; I confess that mostly I use ThisVeryWiki to keep up appearances.²* WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma: Guilty as charged.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Pet Peeves]]²[[AC: {{PetPeeveTrope}}s]]²* RapeAsComedy: At least, when it's applied to women. Yeah, I know that's [[RapeIsOkWhenItsFemaleOnMale a double standard]]²* SacrificialLion: I love a good twist, but more often than not this trope is used as a [[ShockingSwerve twist for the sake of a twist]] rather than adding something to the story.²²[[AC: Wiki Editing Pet Peeves]]²* '''X. Just...X''': [[BerserkButton Really!!?]] You actually [[FanMyopia think I automatically know what you're talking about]] based on the title alone!? You couldn't, I don't know, ''ELABORATE!?'' Grr.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: My Obsession With Trilogies & Franchises]]²My favorite tales invariably tend to be in the form of epic, inter-connecting [[RuleOfThree trilogies]]. The important thing to me is that As a result, I tend to ''hate'' [[TwoPartTrilogy Two-Part Trilogies]] and TrilogyCreep.²²[[AC: These ones you could guess from my handle:]]²* StarWars: The originals, thankyouverymuch. (Though as I've gotten older I've developed criticisms for [[ReturnOfTheJedi Jedi]].)²* TheLordOfTheRings: Perhaps, to me, the most important entry of all my favorited things.²* TheDarkKnightSaga: Grew up on Burton's {{Film/Batman}}, but I'm pleasantly surprised at how [[ChristopherNolan Nolan's]] saga is holding my attention.²²[[AC: Others:]]²* BackToTheFuture: Perhaps the only time that a TwoPartTrilogy ''worked''.²* TheMatrix: JumpedTheShark way too fast; it had so much [[RuinedForever potential]]. Sob.²* TheBourneSeries: Tight pacing and storytelling.²²[[AC: My "Unofficially Collected Trilogies"]][[labelnote:Γ]] This means that they're really separate works that [[DeathOfTheAuthor aren't meant to create an interconnected trilogy by their respective makers]], but I [[SpiritualSuccessor consider them as such anyway]], either due to complementary themes or other reasons.[[/labelnote]]²* [[YourMindMakesItReal ''Your Mind Makes It Real'' Trilogy]]: Distillation of PostCyberPunk, with {{Inception}}, DarkCity, and the first [[TheMatrix Matrix]]²* [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel ''80's Monsters are Better'' Trilogy]]: The [[TheBlob Blob]], [[TheFly Fly]], [[TheThing Thing]] 80's remakes.²* [[GothSpirals Stop-Motion Impressionism Trilogy]]: Made up of TheNightmareBeforeChristmas, CorpseBride, and {{Coraline}}. [[labelnote:∅]]JamesAndTheGiantPeach, though made by HenrySelick, just doesn't have the whole Gothic-related motif going on, so I discount it[[/labelnote]]²* More to add as I think of 'em.²²[[AC: Other Non-Trilogy Franchises I like:]]²* {{Film/Alien}}: The first is psychological horror perfection, the second is deservedly one of the most influential action-suspense films of all time, the 3rd and 4th are incredibly flawed but still viable works of art. [[AlienVsPredator AVP]], however, doesn't exist [[FanDiscontinuity outside of comic books]].²* JamesBond: I was already a fan during the Brosnan years, but the [[CasinoRoyale re]][[QuantumOfSolace tool]] was a breath of fresh air I didn't know the series needed.²* More to add as I think of 'em.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Music I Like]]²* ToriAmos²* {{Radiohead}}²* MassiveAttack²* [[DaftPunk The Tron: Legacy Soundtrack]]²* FlorenceAndTheMachine²[[/folder]]²²[[folder: Vandalism]]²''Vagrants Welcome!''²* Thanks for the comment on my page! - FrodoGoofballCoTV²[[/folder]]²
