Hello, Gosicrystal here. Joined the website on a kinda curious date (June 9, 2016 — if you've played Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, you know why) and have been editing a lot since then. Among my contributions, I have added trope and work examples, corrected bad indentation, commented out and filled Zero Context Examples (just a trope and a character, for example), folderized example lists, improved example sorting... Lots of things. I even single-handedly created and launched the page about Arc Style: Baseball!! 3D, an obscure arcade baseball game.


My hobbies are video gaming and drawing. And of course, TV Tropes. I spend a lot of time every day in YouTube, too. My favorite YouTubers are RanguGamer (yeah, I speak Spanish) and Pharaoh2091.

     Favorite videogames  
  • Fire Emblem games are indisputably my favorite of all time. They marked a turning point in my gaming life. Special mentions go to:
    • Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. People say the story is boring, but I think it's pretty good. It taps into the familiar while spinning it in new directions. The gameplay is weird for sure, but charming.
    • Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. Nintendo apparently gifted it to me as per the Ambassador Program in 3DS. I had no idea what I was getting into, but boy did I discover a great franchise. Anime + Chess + RPG = Fun.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask: Being a fan of Time Travel plots, it was obvious I would be interested in a game with a "Groundhog Day" Loop mechanic. I had heard and seen the virtues of this jewel on the internet, but I really understood just how good it is when I played it myself. It's one of the most artistic and abstract installments of the Zelda series; a masterpiece that combines despair, determination, death, grief, and hope brilliantly with its gameplay, visuals and soundtrack.
  • Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective: A mind-blowing Nintendo DS game with a really good plot, adorable characters, good music and interesting gameplay mechanics. Plus, it has Time Travel, a theme I love!
  • Minecraft: Definitely one of the best games ever made, and still improving. Letting you create the world you want with its simple mechanics is absolutely unique.
  • Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations: The third game of the main Ace Attorney series. It's a peak of quality that some may say has already been surpassed by Investigations 2, but which I treasure in my mind as the best Ace Attorney ever.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword: A game that has created a lot of controversy but which has gotten to me with its beautiful graphic style and OST. It feels like a fresh wind in the franchise.
  • Arc Style: Baseball!! 3D: This is a not-too-good casual baseball game with bad music and stupid AI, but I have spent hundreds of hours having fun playing with my custom characters. Seriously, playing with Expies of characters from Ghost Trick, One Piece and Pokémon is a joy, as long as you know how to make them look alike!
  • Mario Super Sluggers, which I absolutely love but can't play because I have a PAL Wii U and the game will only work in an NTSC one.
  • Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors: A visual novel that inspired horror on me, but which I grew very fond of by the end of it. Seriously, it needs to be known better.
  • Portal: Puzzle solving with portable worm holes? Shut up and take my money!

     Tropes that apply to me  
  • Favorite Trope:
  • Pet-Peeve Trope:
    • Smart People Wear Glasses. I can't understand how there are people in real life who automatically think that a person with glasses must be smart. It just means that they can't see well. Period. They could be a dumbass and still wear glasses.
    • How We Got Here. Seriously, just go in chronological order. I despise being presented with a climactic 20-second scene at the beginning and then see "72 hours earlier". I just don't like going from climax to anticlimax like that. I can deal with this trope only if the episode is In Medias Res and the flashback showing how they got there is presented late in the episode and briefly.
    • The Unreveal and Ambiguous Ending. I guess I'm just a curious person who likes to be told everything. I don't like unresolved mysteries after a work ends.
  • Troper Types:
    • Trope Editor. Most of what I do in this wiki is fix indentation, comment out zero context examples and give them context, fix typos, evaluate whether a spoiler tag is overly long or short... That kind of things.
    • The Advertiser, if you couldn't tell by the "Favorite videogames of all time" section. If a work that I like doesn't have many wicks, I'm happy to create them.
    • The Art Museum Curator. I check Image Pickin' often to see what new threads arise and how can I help to choose a better pic for any given page. Crowner voting and giving my thumbs up/down to proposals are the things I do most, although I sometimes reply to lateral issues and trains of thought someone else posts.
