Admiration Tropes

Go To

Admiration: Our polite recognition of another's resemblance to ourselves.

Admiration of varying kinds can make several important tropes, showing aspects of our characters. It can range from Bob feeling respect for Alice, to feeling deep camaraderie with her, to outright worshiping her.

But admiration is not always a good thing. Bad things can result, depending on the circumstances and who the giver(s) and receiver(s) are.
