- No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous-
Almost, at times, the Fool.The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, TS Eliot
Sabre's Edge is the handle of a longtime lurker-turned-troper-proper, who was moved to register due to The Situation. He customarily wears his Nice Hat while troping the web fantastic and is in the process of tracking down his previously-anonymous Tropers' Tales entries and linking them to this page.
College-aged, male, and Californian. Eagle Scout and Armchair Military, but tries to avoid the nastier aspects of that trope. Not actually a swordsman or a fencer (despite what the hastily-thought-up-name might have you believe); is rather more at home with a .22 bolt-action carbine, although he does not own one and rarely gets to use one. (Occasions where he does get to use one to punch holes in paper targets usually are accompanied by some degree of squeeing.)
List of applicable tropes will be occasionally updated. Was engaged in a detect-localize-acquire exercise, in ASW terms, as a familiarization exercise to TV Tropes for a friend.
For the sake of that friend, let's just say that said friend is playing the role of a carrier with a full deck of antisub helos, with this troper playing the role of the hunted sub. Finally detected, localized, and acquired. Welcome to TV Tropes, C.
Now has a dedicated Twitter account to join the growing number of Tropers with it, here.
- Asian and Nerdy: proudly so.
- Author Catchphrase: tendency to abuse emdashes, parentheses, and ellipses. Working on fixing it.
- British English: despite being an Eaglelander by residence.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: so, who's up for a round of Quiz Bowl?
- Chivalrous Pervert: You said it yourself. :P -Nekoalexa
- Costume Inertia: subverted in the matter of headgear, where he alternates between three Nice Hats. Played straight in terms of clothing and forum paraphernalia.
- Ditzy Genius or Genius Ditz: one of the two. Not sure which.
- Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory ~ betterthanstrawberry
- I Love Nuclear Power ~ betterthanstrawberry
- Military Mashup Machine: A cross between a shipyard and an AWACS would probably require some radical imagining of the topography. ~ betterthanstrawberry
- Protagonist-Centered Morality: Are we not allowed to ship you back? :/ Noaqiyeum
- Pungeon Master: don't get him started on any puns related with shipping.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: occasionally, perhaps.
- Shipper on Deck: You seem rather fond of the Eldritch ships - StolenByFaeries
- Of course, all shipping is done as a matter of Rule of Funny.
- The Ship Yard —Earl of Sandvich
- Don't I wish I'd thought that one up...!
- Talks like a Simile: has a tendency to slip semi-obscure military/naval-related metaphors and similes into his speech. It's like the Son Tay raid: if I can get away with it, no matter how belated it is...
- Team Mom ~ betterthanstrawberry
- You Are in Command Now: I've been a bit member and part-assistant GM in two RPs so far (Wizards Vs Muggles and Kingdom Hearts Twilight Of The Stars). In both cases I ended up taking overall control, at least for the time being. Reluctant Dragon Ascendant.
