Tropers / Swim To The Moon

Go To

Oh boy. Am I really trying to sum myself up with tropes? Am I that bored? Well, here goes.

I'm Scott, I'm 23 years old, I live in Useful Notes/Edmonton, Canada and I am a nerd. Well I wouldn't be using this site if I wasn't, would I?

I cosplay, I travel, and I follow Iron Maiden around. I've seen them a total of 14 times.

My name comes from the final track on Between The Buried And Me's The Great Misdirect album. TROPES THAT APPLY TO ME:


  • Adaptation Distillation: I am very tolerant of this under the condition that the story doesn't suffer.
  • Adorkable: That seems to be where my life is headed.
  • Beat: I seem to do this a lot.
  • Beserk Button: A lot of them:
    • Being asked the same question twice
    • Asking someone a simple question only to get a long, rambling answer.
    • People who don't listen.
    • People who can't be bothered to read simple instructions.
    • Armchair activists.
    • NATTER. If I see any, I remove it.
    • Elitists.
    • People who call themselves "Warrior poet" or claim to be badass on this page.
      • Cosplay elitists in particular; people thinking that "unless you made your costume, you aren't a real cosplayer" or openly criticizing other cosplayers. Can't we all just get along?
    • People thinking that gay men not being Camp Gay/Effeminate means "Internalized homophobia" or being a "self hating gay".

  • Black Comedy: My sense of humour in a nutshell.
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: I casually make these kinds of sentences.
  • Catchphrase: "Jesus Christ on a fishstick!!!"
  • Couldn't Find a Pen: I can't be trusted with pens. I lose them a lot.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Distracted by the Sexy: I am easily distracted by hot guys. Seriously. Even at work.
  • Evil Laugh: I can master these with much ease. My laugh already sounds sinister enough on its own.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Thanks to the Maiden fanclub, I seem to have a rather alarming amount of British friends.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: I often swear in foreign languages for no reason.
  • Metal Scream: I specialize in these too. I have a very high falsetto range and so when singing metal tunes, I can effortlessly slide into my head voice and slip out one hell of a scream.

  • Must Have Caffiene: Not an extreme example, but if there isn't coffee readily available in the early morning on weekdays, then fuck right off.
  • Nerd: Believe it.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: My philosophy in life. If you can effortlessly quote Doctor Who, then there's one way to my pants- I mean heart...
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: I fucking swear a lot, even in front of kids, motherfuckers.
  • Straight Gay: I'm openly gay. But I don't hang around crowds of gay guys, 90% of my friends are straight, I don't obssess over fashion or have emotionally charged freakouts, I can't stand gay bars or clubs and would rather have a nice night with some friends at the pub, and I listen to heavy metal.
  • The Klutz: I am ridiculously klutzy. I break glasses with much ease, I trip over objects on a daily basis, I bump into people too easily, and my bouts of Distracted by the Sexy certainly contribute.
