Age: Young Adult

Nationality: British

Western Zodiac: Gemini

"Canon, The children in my care, varying in age and need, have universally a destitution. I do what I can, between my own wealth and what others give to them. If you would come and tithe to the children of the Serene House, I assure you it would be most appreciated. They may put them to what use they will, though I will advise; some come and go from the orphanage freely, as a safe haven. I only require that they do not endanger the safety of others, nor create trouble while they are here. Sincerely, Laura Serene-Cress, Monster-Hunter"

A TV Tropes greenhorn who's In need of friends, advice, direction and the name of Mr Eaten. Just started out and I'm drowning in a sea/zee of tropes/rules/admin/Tribbles. Send help! or a TV trope guide for dummies...

Due to having Developmental Coordination Disorder/Developmental Dyspraxia (DCD) a neurological condition that causes hand-eye coordination issues as other problems. I have issues with spelling, Punctuation and grammar. Not good things to have issues with on a wiki site but I'll try to persevere. But in all honesty advice on how to create or use trope pantheon templates, How to use images and general advice would be appreciated.

Favorite works of The Punslinger:

    Fan Works 

    Films — Animation 

    Films — Live-Action 

  • A Face Like Glass: Read this as a kid, the twists and turns are well thought out and the story has good pacing. Worth a read to those who like High Fantasy with a sprinkle of Low Fantasy and mystery and intrigue.
  • Demon Road: A great trilogy by Derek Landy about a Loser Protagonist who's finds out her parents are literally demons and they want to eat her. An amazing thrill ride with some interesting new takes on vampires, demons, haunted cars, hell and The Devil (The Blood Dimmed King really should appear in a future novel). Oh and one of the best Xanatos Speed Chess by a hero I've seen in a long time.

    Live-Action TV 
  • DCI Banks: Another great crime show. Responsible for one of favourite lines: "You're the least worst candidate for the job.
  • The Goodies: Great comedy show that was a favourite of mine growing up (had a few sets on DVD).
  • Inspector George Gently: Period crime drama that was not afraid to show the attitude of the time. Dealing with topics like Dirty Cop's, homophobia, racism and sexism. One stubborn old man refuses to let prejudice get in the way of catching the culpable.
  • In the Flesh: An interesting short run series about the aftermath of a Zombie Apocalypse that deals with the human side of things and the struggle to deal with choices made before and during the outbreak on a much smaller scale.
  • Mock the Week: One of my favourite BBC Panel Game's. I really enjoyed the Between the Lines and Newsreel segments. My favourite panellists have got to be Hugh Dennis, Ed's Byrne and Gamble, Milton Jones (my spirit animal), Russel Howard, Miles Jupp and of course the King who Crosses the Line Twice: Frankie Boyle.
  • Silent Witness: Quality British Forensic Drama that's been running since 1996. My favourite episode so far is "In a lonely place" for it's Grim Up North setting and a story that slowly unfolds from a simple murder to a hunt for a Complete Monster of a Serial Killer with Red Herring's and thread spotting galore.
  • Vera: Another excellent crime drama from Oop North with a great detective who is 50% frumpy to 50% snark.

  • Aviators: Great artist with wide range of songs. Done especially good collaborations over the years. Well worth a listen.
  • Florence + the Machine: Been listening to her songs for a long time now. We with DCD have to stick together...
  • Iron Maiden:
  • Miracle of Sound: The best filk singer out there bar none. I'm really thinking of buying some of his albums for my MP3.
  • Of Monsters and Men: An amazing band that I had the luck to find online. I bought their first album and loved it. Favourite song is "King and Lionheart".
  • Sabaton: Great power metal band from Sweden! My current favourite song is "Shiroyama".

    Video Games 
  • BioShock: Despite it's age this is still a firm favourite, due to it's well written story and how well designed the setting was. However the "Brass Balls" achievement can go do one
    • Bioshock 2: Was the first game in the series I played, yes really.
      • Minerva's Den was a great piece of DLC with a really intriguing mini story.
    • Bioshock Infinite: Liked the gun style and vigors, Played through the story multiple times and 100% completed it (see achievements).
  • Borderlands: Mained Roland, beat the main game and all the story DLC. Thought it was fun but the sequal is a definite improvement.
  • Dawn of the Dragons: Been playing since secondary school. I'll keep grinding till I die. Also some of the magics and generals are really good for an avatar and the Black Comedy of some lore is fun to read through.
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution: ♫Broken body built anew / Spirit lingers, torn in two / Metal fingers grip my heart so cold♪. Great game with a awesome narrative but that pacifist achievement was downright nasty and I never asked for that (You can't kill anyone during the prologue and you have NO none-lethal abilities).
  • Dishonoured: Amazing Steampunk world with a dark atmosphere and fascinating lore and story. The ability to be a non-lethal assassin who makes his victim's wish he only killed them cathartic. I've not 100%'ed it because I never want to put the characters I grew to respect through the hell that is High Chaos. Revenge solves everything.
  • Dragon's Dogma: An amazing JRPG with some really neat little things like height and encumbrance being a real mechanic. The boss fight against the Griffin and Dragon were really well paced as well. But fair warning the Dark Arisen expansion is nasty, Bitterblack Isle is not for the underleveled.
  • Fallen London: A reckoning is not to be postponed indefinitely. Amazing blend of Black Comedy and Gothic Horror that I'd recommend to all. I even spent real world money on it on a monthly basis, which is something ElectronicArts can try to get me to do but never succeed. My personal recommendations for exceptional stories are HOJOTOHO!, For all The Saints, Tauroktonos, The Garden Embassy and Noises from Upstairs''.
  • Fallout 3: Fun fact about this one, to get all the alignment achievements I kept the megaton quest open and used that to massively shift my karma rating to the desired level. Hellfire armour and Shishkebab for the win!
  • Far Cry 3: Beat it all, even that broken Co-Op mode.
  • L.A. Noire: Immersive Noir mystery with some really intresting ideas and a story with interesting twists and turns (Roy Earle turning into a corpse sadly did not happen). The driving was underwhelming but the cars were great (The Fetch Quest's could go do one). Favourite missions were the DLC Nicholson Electroplating and the finale A Different Kind of War.
  • Legacy of a Thousand Suns: I played this game right up until it's end. Found the Flavour Text interesting and enjoyed the art of the various ships and crew. I also really liked how they managed to merge the story of DOTD and the characters from it to the main storyline and was happy to see the campaign through to it's finale.
  • Mass Effect: Elphis Shepherd the paragon Earthborn infiltrator managed to slog through the combat and actually enjoy the storyline and the character interactions.
  • RAGE: An unpolished gem of a game. The combat was engaging and the weapons were awesome and brutal to use (such as the nail-gun and mind control bolts). It's less impressive part 2 can be compensated for the DLC which adds a boss fight against an airship.
  • Red Dead Redemption: Possibly the best western game ever made with a story that tugged at my cold apathetic gamer heart. I actually played the good guy and did no wrong. Even managed to get 100%, here's to you Mr Marston.
  • Town of Salem: Always a nice to play a couple of games and I enjoy the awesome and madcap moments you can have such as the time I performed a Mutual Kill on Werewolf Manga Minx as a Veteran causing her to rage or when I as Darth Binks the Arsonist burned 5 people to death all at once!

    Web Comics 

    Western Animation 
  • Over the Garden Wall: In such a short time this series managed to tell a story that is beautiful, sad, funny and scary. Gorgeous art as well.

Miscellaneous of The Punslinger:



    To-Do List: 

The page quote for Gardening-Variety Weapon seems quite poor. Since the game is on it's last legs how about an example From Dawn of the Dragons? (If people want to keep the current I'll make a quotes page instead)

A humble farmhand's tool. Built for menial labour. But in times of war, when enemies threaten solider and civilian, those sharp metal prongs can be put to deadly use.
Flavour Text of the Pitchfork, Dawn of the Dragons

I Am Not Him and Contrasting Sequel Main Character are the same quote. Which needs to be changed?

I also want to put forward a suggestion to the replace the current quote for Gambling Tropes with Miracle of Sound's Filk Song about Fallout: New Vegas, as I feel it covers more tropes than simply betting large amount of money. Thoughts on it's suitability?

To tip the odds and rig the game
Deal another hand and play
Every card a shift of circumstance
Let every bettor stake their claim
Deal another hand and play

Deliberately disappearing dead body:

Bob has just found Alice's body, he confirm's she's really dead and isn't pretending. However something distract's Bob for a short amount of time and when he return's Alice's corpse has gone missing...

Some reason's for the body vanishing include:

  • The killer has taken the body to dispose of it, Or to Gaslight other characters.
  • Someone's been a bit peckish...
  • The Victim was killed in a way that eventually resulted in No Body Left Behind
  • The Victim was the victim of a Ret-Gone (Likely that character's will not remember there ever being a body)
  • Someone (Including the victim) has brought them Back from the Dead and they've simply walked off.
  • There was never a body there and Bob is having Hallucinations brought on by some Sanity Slippage.

Not Never Found the Body because both character's and the audience know/knew the character is dead. May provoke the reaction of It Was There I Swear. Possible Sub-Trope of Horror Tropes and Paranoia Fuel

And when everything is upside down
When you’re yelling but you make no sound
Life is gonna spin you round
Oh and get a little bit stranger
When everything is upside down
A tremor in the underground
The nights are gonna take this town
Oh and get a little bit stranger
Lost in the spaces behind
Hold out a hand in your mind
Don’t have to face it aloneUpside Down, Miracle of Sound
