I'm DJay32. I'm twenty-two. I identify, these days, as "not really British" and "not sure if real." I joined TV Tropes for the support and the incredibly caring community people have around here, and I stayed for the sheer addiction of categorizing tropes in day-to-day situations.
Specific stories that have tropes pages:
- OH GOD THE RAPTURE IS BURNING: An apocalypse written and felt. Currently being changed into an actual final draft, so working on this tropes page is not my priority yet. One book down, one to go!
- Topography Genera: Lots and lots of blogs about science and water. Now a book!
- Viceking's Graab: An endless labyrinth tomb of words. Difficult to get a grip on, let alone make tropes for, but the story is complete, so there is that. Well. Mostly.
To any and all vandalists: I love and wholly support you in every sense of our words.
HUG!!!!!!!Because you totally deserve it. ~PasswordForgettingTroper
- Cerulean Skies, here! Dude, you need a hug. I hope it gets better for you. *hugs!*

- Holy mother of Celestia...Dude, you deserve a hug. Props to you for even being strong enough to ask for help.

- Nth-ded. And I didn't even read the whole thread, just the first page of the thread and then this part, and it still almost made me cry to see how far you've come in between. Can't wait to read the other 66 pages leading up to this part. I'm so happy for you that things are better, that this hasn't ended in tragedy, that there are happy endings (except without the "ending", because you've still got a lot of life ahead of you!), et cetera. I know it was an awesome moment for me, hopefully it was just as awesome for you! - NoriMori
- Woobie: You could be the TV Tropes Official Woobie.
- Nightmare Fuel: The blogs.
- Why Did It Have To Be Spiders His house seems infested with the things.
Tropes applying to Massive Story Inside (by the Tropers)
Could someone.. help? A bit? Please? *Massive Story Inside* is a TV Tropes thread started in November 2010. Initiated as a desperate call for help from an abused teen in a toxic home, the thread grew into an ongoing account of his life and travails as DJay fought to survive and to find a better life away from his tyrannical and physically abusive father.
And when we say the thread grew, we do mean grew. As of this writing, the thread is 115 pages long and counting, with a post count of 2,872 posts covering a period of ten months. In that time, a great number of tropers have come and gone, though a core group has stayed through most of it, and has lead to some Thread Hopping from newcomers.
The thread provides examples of:
- Abusive Parents: Unfortunately, for the most part they seem to not want to acknowledge it, or simply don't realize what they're doing.
- Adults Are Useless: Several social workers came and spoke with the family. Nothing happened.
- Subverted by Iaculus
- Angrish: Various reactions to DJay's dad taking control of the discussion with the social worker in January.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family
- Berserk Button: DJay's dad has.. quite a few.
- Blatant Lies: "Don't go to the doctor/do this or that; we're gonna feed you a lot more from now on."
- Brain Bleach: That kid's gonna need a lot.
- Calling the Old Man Out: It's been attempted, but only led to more trouble.
- Crowning Momentof Awesome: Many.
- DJay might be able to go to America — if he can pay for the ticket. So what happens?
Iaculus and Antony get together the £809 in less than two weeks, each trading off outdoing each other and downplaying it on the thread.OK, perhaps I should clarify this. The ticket ended up costing £809 due to the relatively close date. Mark had agreed to split the price fifty-fifty, but seeing as it was pricier than anticipated, I made it clear that he didn't need to hold up his side of the bargain if he felt this would hurt his wallet too much.So he sent me £500 instead.
- DJay might be able to go to America — if he can pay for the ticket. So what happens?
- Berserk Button: DJay's dad has.. a few.
- Disc-One Final Dungeon: The interview with the social worker.
- Disproportionate Retribution: DJay's father has bruised him for trying to walk out of an argument, to name one example.
- Earn Your Happy Ending: So far, though time will tell if it lasts.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: DJay's father again.
- Hope Spot: Social worker, Spain..
- The Insomniac: DJay has nothing to sleep for, no school to prepare for.
- Ironic Echo: Unintentionally, and yet so fitting. Wow. Just... Wow.
- It Got Worse: Several times. ..more than several. Countless.
- I Will Show You Abuse: Yes, this was actually said by his father.
- Karma Houdini: What with how often the authorities don't do anything, and with even the social services concluding DJay was "not at risk," it's pretty safe to say his father is this.
- Kick the Dog: When DJay's mom tried to strangle him.
- Machiavelli Was Wrong
- Misery Builds Character: Can happen while reading the thread.
- Or maybe the trope was added because it applies to DJay's life.
- Mood-Swinger: DJay isn't 100% emotionally stable.
- Mood Whiplash: Can frequently happen
- Overly Long Name: "The Fountain in the Presence of Metropolis, pt. 3: The Return of the Giant Count of Tuscany who Lies Down on Broadway," movement twelve: The Willing Well V: Exogenesis part four: The Seventh Degree of Inner Turbulence: Post-Apocalypse in 148/8. note
- Race Against the Clock: DJay's greencard, since he is out of the States, expires on August 7th, 2011. It doesn't look like his parents intend on returning before then, so some tropers chip in and buy him a plane ticket.
- Recap Episode: The thread so far is recapped in a few posts.
- Stockholm Syndrome: Especially evident in the early pages, though the tropers manage to help DJay out of it in most cases.
- Take a Third Option: The choice was between stay in England with whatever new friends DJay might make, or move to an undetermined state in America with no certainty if life would get better. He was able to go back to the state he came from, to finish high school, and without his own family. All thanks to tropers.
- Troll: Averted and lampshaded. "When I first started reading, I suspected that you were a troll, and the whole thing would end in Bel Air. The more I read, however, the more I really, really wished it would."
- The Un-Favourite
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy
- Wham Line: "We can't foster sixteen-year olds."
- What Could Have Been: On the very first page, post 21, DJay almost decides to just not post anymore. But after several days, he posts again and hasn't stopped since. The whole thread could have been cut short. Very short. There's no telling what might have become of him.
