Anoniguy, another random Troper with some amateur writing/comicking/animation experience, but no pro work. I possess the superpower of Bad Spelling.
I found my way to TV Tropes through discussion of AvatartheLastAirbender, and have been completely hooked ever since. I spend most of my time lurking, but now and then do a little contribution and editing, mostly on the Berserk page. I am really bad at this wiki thing so far, but I am learning.
I think the coolest thing about this place is that, in the course of my reading, I have run into so man incredibly rewarding works that I might never have heard of otherwise. And my understanding of the structures of stories, character interaction and so forth has grown enormously. It gives one a lot more tools for critical reading.
And it's funny, man.
And the one article I definitely intend to make... Karuizawa Syndrome: A manga by Yoshihisa Tagami from 1980 about a young photographer who sleeps around.
