So, this is my Author Avatar, also named Cutegirl920fire or CG for short! Just your typical pig gal.

Hullo, this is Cutegirl920fire. If you wanna listen to some background music as you read this, I suggest these two; a more calm one and a more energetic one here. Now, I will tell you the following:

    Historical Figures I'm Quite Interested In 
Aside from Marie Antoinette, there quite a few Historical Domain Characters who peek a decent amount of my interest; list is in order of how much interest I have for them; if there's a tie (as in I find two figures equally fascinating) then alphabetical order; those who don't have a Useful Notes page on TV Tropes will be italicized.
  • Marie-Thérèse Charlotte: Daughter of Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI, only one of her immediate family to survive the French Revolution, given the title of Madame Royalenote  at one point and was technically Queen of France for twenty minutes. If The Woobie allowed real-life examples, I would've put her on there.
  • Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova: Youngest daughter of Nicholas II, you probably best know her from the Don Bluth movie based off her. No, she did not survive.
  • Elizabeth I: Queen of England and last ruler of the Tudor Dynasty. Died a virgin.
  • Josephine Baker: An American-born French actress, activist, and spy. She was a pretty iconic gal during the Roaring Twenties, wore the Banana skirt, and helped out the French Resistance during World War II. A fabulous woman and wonderful Bi icon.
  • Anne Boleyn: Second wife of Henry VIII and mother of Elizabeth I. Quite a feisty lady but was hated by England due to wearing yellow clothes at Katherine of Aragon's funeral and other things. Of all the miscarriages, Liz was the only one who made it, but she's a girl, so Henry wasn't happy. Later lost her head due to (false) charges of adultery and incest.
  • Queen Victoria: Queen of the UK, known for expanding the British Empire hard, and her reign is considered a pretty influential era. Did not say "We are not amused".
  • Maria Theresa: Sole female Habsburg ruler, fought her way for accession, did some reforms, and had a rivalry with Frederick the Great. Had 16 kids, including Marie Antoinette.
    Works of Fiction That I Enjoy 
In Order of those I'm the most invested in; favs bolded.
     The Genres I Like the Most 
  • Historical Fiction: This one becomes a no-brainer, with the whole history nerd part.
  • Fantasy: I'm the one who'll always like something fantastical in nature and one of my favorite genres in general.
    • Urban Fantasy: This is probably my favorite subgenre of Fantasy aside from Historical Fantasy and Dark Fantasy, the mix of the ordinary and the magical make a nice pair in my opinion.
    • Dark Fantasy: I always have a thing for darker stuff (even long before I got in history, which has a rather consistent habit of getting dark), so throw it in fantasy, I'll going to enjoy it in some way or another.
  • Historical Fantasy: It's essentially two genres I happen to love did a Fusion Dance!
  • Supernatural Fiction: Similar concept as the Fantasy one, so I'd come to like this one as well (however, I'm not really into Paranormal Romance
  • Sci-Fi: Even if it's not entirely possible to achieve in real life, futuristic technology is Rule of Cool at its finest, since just like its Fantasy sibling, there's a lot to wonder about with them.
    • Science Fantasy: Similar to Urban Fantasy, it mixes too contrasting things (in this case, Sci-Fi and Fantasy) and the result is a definitely interesting fusion.
  • Horror: Even though I'm long out of my hardcore horror fan phase (which quickly evolved into a hardcore Saw fan), I'll still enjoy a good horror story since I'm into morbid stuff in general (a trait that's been with me since I was a kid).

    Some Genres I'm Not Really Into 
  • Romance: I'm just not really into it in general, though I somewhat get the appeal (There are exceptions, however, such as Lore Olympus)
    • Erotic Literature, Hentai, etc: You see, I'm kinda squeamish when it comes to sex scenes (probably has something to do with my parents telling me to cover my eyes when one appeared when I was younger, which is understandable), but I don't mind them being there (I would skip them anyway). When there's a whole genre dedicated to sex, you probably won't catch me reading them.
    Some Tropes That I Happen To Like 
  • Historical Domain Character: I love it when historical figures appear in stories even if it's not a period drama (bonus points if they're somewhat important in the plot), hence why I enjoy works that have it as part of their premise, such as the Fate Series.
    • Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: Similar to the above trope, I personally think it's awesome to have historical figures in your story. It makes it better if they that led a cool secret life behind the scenes (especially if it's supernatural or fantastical in nature).
    • Historical Domain Superperson: No, the reason that I like this trope has nothing to do with the fact it's the first trope I drafted and launched (mostly). You see, it's the concept of the trope; superpowered historical figures are way up my alley.
    • No Historical Figures Were Harmed: Basically, when you wanna use a Historical Domain Character but it'll break the immersion to your 100% fantastical world (whether it'll be fantasy or sci-fi), so you make an original character based on them with the Serial Numbers Filed Off (or just a name change). I like seeing historical allusions in fiction and this is one of the ways to achieve that.
  • Alternate History: Alternate History is Exactly What It Says on the Tin and it's quite fascinating to think what could've happened (i.e the French and Russian Monarchies are still around)
  • Elseworld (The Historical kind): Somewhat of an overlap with Historical Fantasy, I think it's pretty cool to see what fictional characters would do if they were just teleported to a historical era.
  • Archived Army: The concept of a group of historical figures just teaming up and fighting some crap for whatever reason is a huge cool factor for me. Bonus points if they have superpowers/magic/etc.
  • Shown Their Work: This doesn't just apply to history; I always appreciate it every time someone does the research since it's a sign someone really cares about their work.
  • Royal Blood: Fun fact, even before Marie Antoinette I was into other (fictional) royal women such as Princess Peach, Lizzie Hearts, and Princess Aurora, so that probably explains why I'm into royalty (just not the current ones; I'm only into those who are fictional or those who are dead for at minimum a century)
  • Mystical White Hair: Blame Marie Antoinette for that one.
  • Woobie and any of its sub-tropes: I don't know why, but I find characters who went through a lot of stuff in their lives quite compelling, especially if they're well written.
  • Broken Bird: Same as above.
  • Fantasy Kitchen Sink: I really like the concept of this trope, as you can get super creative with all of the fantastical characters and creatures you yeet into a story.
     Some Tropes That I'm Not Too Fond Of 
  • Hollywood History: I'm willing to accept a few historical inaccuracies and/or leaving out some stuff here and there, if it's Played for Laughs, pacing, takes place in an urban fantasy/supernatural/sci-fi setting (after all magic tends to mess up stuff and there's the Beethoven Was an Alien Spy trope to consider), or not exactly meant to be historically accuratenote , but if the work keeps getting its facts wrong for no good reason, then I'm going to get quite annoyed.
  • Death Is Cheap: I never liked this trope at all, because it essentially makes death in a particular work/series pointless to do (after all why would you be sad over a character's death if you know you they will come back sooner or later?). The only uses of this trope that I'm okay with if it's in a parody or resurrection is already established beforehand has certain conditions and there are a few consequences for it (whether it'll be psychological or physical).
  • First Law of Resurrection: Resurrection in fiction is a mixed bag for me. I don't mind it if it's the premise to begin with (i.e a bunch of people came back from the dead but don't know why), already established in the story if it's not the central premise and in that case, some form of Equivalent Exchange is at play. However, if it comes out of nowhere and has no good reason other than the writer wants to bring back a certain character, then that's a total Ass Pull and weakens the emotional impact of death in that particular work.
  • Black Dude Dies First: I don't feel comfortable with the concept of this trope, however, I am willing to tolerate it if it happens in a work that has racism as one of its central themes since this would probably help get the point across.
  • Bury Your Gays: Similar concept with the above trope, except with LBGTQ+ characters. Like the above trope, I am willing to tolerate it if it happens in a work with homophobia/transphobia as one of its central themes.
  • Angst? What Angst?: Unless a character is repressing their memories, it makes no sense why no one wouldn't be even slightly affected by a traumatic event.
  • Coitus Ensues: I'm fine with sex scenes in fiction, even if I'm going to skip them. They're kinda required in erotica. However, if they come up out of absolutely nowhere (or just to have an '"excuse" for killing off that one blonde in a horror movie), then that wastes time that could've led to developing the characters, their relationship, the plot, etc.
    • Sex Equals Death: Just really unnecessary and pointless other than to have a steamy scene, which you could have many other ways to implement that in without damaging much of the plot.
  • Romanticized Abuse: Probably Unfortunate Implications at it's "finest", abuse isn't pretty.
  • Status Quo Is God: It gets repetitive and very predictable after a while, plus I prefer an ongoing story and character development. I'm a bit more accepting of this in animated comedies, but even then, I have a limit.
    Some Stuff I Did On TV Tropes 

    Tropes That Apply To My Avatar Gallery 
Why make a list describing tropes to yourself when you can do that to your avatar gallery?
  • Action Girl: Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Lian, Quetz Samba, Haru, Sersi, Lakshimbai (both IRL and Fate), Eris and Sona from Gearbreakers all apply.
  • Alternate Self: Hoo boi
    • As you would've expected, I have several versions of Marie Antoinette in my avatar (IRL version, Kirsten Dunst version, FGO versionnote , Rose of Versailles version, Innocent manga version, Mr. Peabody & Sherman version, OverSimplified version, the Clone High version, and Grimms Notes versionnote .
    • Anastasia Romanov: IRL version, FGO versionnote , and Don Bluth version.
    • Marie-Therese Charlotte: Teen version and adult version.
    • Louis XVI: IRL version, Innocent manga version, and Oversimplified version.
    • Queen Victoria: IRL version and The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! version.
    • Black Widow: MCU version and one of the comic versions (IDK which one tho).
    • Lakshimbai: IRL version and FGO version.
    • And that's not even getting into the fact some of them (mostly the versions of Marie Antoinette) have different outfits as some of my avatars.
  • An Ice Person: FGO Anastasia's abilities are based around ice with her Caster variant's NP using Viy to freeze enemies to death while the Archer variant uses Viy to turn them into an ice cream thing.
  • Badass Santa: All of the Santa Servants from FGO serve as this. They are dressed up as Santa but as they're still decently powerful Servants, so they will probably kick your butt hard. IDK about Santa Nero AKA Padoru tho, she might be too wholesome to cause harm.
  • Bookends: Each page in my gallery starts with and ends with a Marie Antoinette avatar. In fact these Maries would share a connection beyond being portrayals of Marie Antoinette with the exception of Page 2.
  • Cast of Snowflakes: Even if you count the different versions of Marie Antoinette, all of my avatars are quite varied in terms of art style, appearance/design, and medium.
  • The Fashionista: Naturally, Marie Antoinette and not just the IRL version. IIRC, the FGO and ROV versions have numerous outfits, implying this for the former and probably confirmed in-story for the latter.
  • Follow the Leader: Meta-example, 'cause why not, tho this entry will not be harsh. Ever since I created this section and other people saw it, I noticed that other Tropers are having their own "Tropes that apply to their avatar gallery'' in their pages. I don't mind this at all, since, after all, I don't own the concept. If you wanna have that on your Tropers page, go for it!
  • Fountain of Memes: I have some memey avatars such as Wabuu, that edited pic of Louis XVI saying "whoops", Grape-kun, that Distung avatar shared to me by DontJinxMe, Oversimified Louis XVI saying "Ooohhhh noooo!" and that Zelda CDI dude saying "Rogue launching is illegal, you know".
  • Historical Domain Character: A decent amount of them are historical figures, such as Marie Antoinette, Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova, Marie-Therese Charlotte, Elizabeth I, and Josephine Baker.
  • Historical Domain Superperson: The historical Servants (such as FGO!Marie, FGO!Anastasia, and FGO!Lakshimbai) and Don Bluth!Rasputin have supernatural abilities.
  • Mon: I have a few Pokémon avatars such as Wooper, Slowpoke, Lugia, Mightyena, and Froslass.
  • Mystical White Hair:
    • FGO!Marie (all versions), FGO!Anastasia (both Caster and Archer), FGO!Lakshimbai, Lore Olympus!Hades, Queen Arshtat, Jalter Lily, and Santa Karna have varying shades of white hair and all have superpowers and/or supernatural in nature.
    • Invoked but subverted by my Angelic Goddess look from Time Princess. She's dressed up as a goddess, hence the name, and has white hair, but is just a normal gal.
  • Royal Blood: A good amount of them (including like most of the historical figures) are royalty; in fact, it'll be easier to list the aversions.
  • Improbably Female Cast: I have at least several dozen avatars and I think only a quarter of them aren't female.
  • Overused Copycat Character: I have so many Marie Antoinette avatars that it's probably ridiculous. In fact, Page 7 consists of nothing but different versions of Marie!
  • Playing Against Type:
    • There's that one piano avatar who's really out of place, but it was shared to me and it's cute, so I don't mind it that much.
    • And there's Subject 9 but I like spooky things.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: The aforementioned Subject 9.
