Looks like you decided to have a look at my page. Go ahead, keep looking at it.
I'm just some nerd whose name is Matt. I joined this site in February 2015. note And yes, my username is a pun on WMG. Because Incredibly Lame Pun is my middle name.
I like a lot of stuff. While I obviously don't know everything about every work of fiction ever, there's a good chance I at least looked up some of whatever work you're thinking about. TVTropes helps discovering new works, of course.
Feel free to PM me if you have anything to ask. I'll answer as soon as possible.
You can find me on:
- ComicFury as Matt Comics. I happen to be the author of The Redac, if you like crazy Life Embellished webcomics.
- Kongregate as Onewa7. (I'm mostly there for the badges.)
- DeviantArt as Hellfire-Herschel. (I don't use it very often, but still occasionally check it)
Folders full of stuff
Tropes I launched
Tropes I grabbed, improved and launched from YKTTW
- Alliance of Alternates
- Fictional Earth
- Magnus Means Mage
- Noiseless Walker note
- Quest to the West
- Too Qualified to Apply
Tropes I didn't launch, but still significantly worked on
- Cold-Blooded Whatever (remade from a discarded draft by Pistols At Dawn)
- Extradimensional Power Source
- Fire/Ice Duo (made by Snowy 66)
Work pages I worked on at some point
- Added/corrected a lot of things in Excalibur.
- Dramatically improved West Coast Avengers. note
- Reorganized and fleshed out X-Factor.
Character pages I made or improved
- Crystal Story characters. Go play it. It's a cool game.
- Improved the Rain characters page, organizing everything in neat folders. I also occasionally work on the main page.
- Added info to some Naruto arcs. (those are actually my first contributions to TV Tropes!)
- Fixing continuity mistakes/crosswicking/cleaning up Marvel examples and pages. This is gonna happen more and more as my readthrough progresses and I slowly become a living Marvel Comics database.
- Notably, I had to make many examples sound timeless again because a lot of tropers forgot storylines aren't upcoming anymore.
- Made Cross Through readable again. Not sure why it was a wall of text-ish mess of unsorted examples in the first place.
Written in the third person. Just imagine you're watching a documentary about me. It should be helpful if someone has the crazy idea to make a webcomic about tropers.
- Above Good and Evil: Either that or Blue and Orange Morality. The WMG doesn't care about following other people's definitions of, well, everything when he can keep cosmic balance just fine by doing things his way. Don't worry, he got standards and is generally a nice guy.
- Animal Motifs: Quite a lot, Depending on the Writer. The WMG is most commonly associated with wolves and foxes. People often compare him to his pet cat. Bears are sometimes brought up as the WMG's distant relatives. He also has affinities with toads, lizards and ravens, being able to imitate their sounds. His incredible memory and the way he blows his nose have had him called an elephant at times. Either way, he's a zoological nightmare for us poor scientists.
- Asexuality: This creature doesn't seem interested in the lustful behavior lower organisms engage in.
- Beware the Nice Ones: This mellow critter can be very aggressive if you manage to piss him off. Rumors say he got quite a list of berserk buttons, but they're a secret. (until they're pressed, at least)
- Big Eater: self-explanatory.
- Bishōnen: self-explanatory.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: The WMG's default state of mind, especially about things people ask him to do. He has shown more concern for his own projects. In such cases he's simply brilliant... except he still procrastinates quite a lot.
- Brown Eyes: The WMG makes this usually dull color look very cool.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: "Look, a flying pizza!" This is only one of the many weird things the WMG can say. One wonders what's going on in his brain at times.
- Dark Is Not Evil: self-explanatory.
- Deadpan Snarker: oh so much.
- Idiot Hair: No matter how much the WMG takes care of his mane, there's always some asymmetric parts.
- Immortality Seeker: Immortality seems to be one of this creature's goals. He has been seen studying elixirs, bloodstones, dragon blood and pretty much any immortality scheme you can think of. He has been heard saying he'd like to "play every videogame ever" which admittedly would take centuries.
- Incredibly Lame Pun: The WMG is really fond of them.
- The Klutz: The WMG broke, damaged or just dropped a lot of things.
- Metaphorgotten: A recurring part of his dialogue.
- Nightmare Fetishist: The WMG loves spooky imagery. (as long as it isn't gore, anyway) There's a reason The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline are two of his favorite works.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: The WMG often thinks this is the best option.
- Purple Is Powerful: And his favorite color.
- Sophisticated as Hell: Despite his love of unusual words this critter also swears a lot. Lesser swears, though. note If a Precision F-Strike happens, you know you angered him.
- True Neutral: Probably the alignment that fits him best.
- Virtue/Vice Codification: If the WMG was a personified sin, he'd be Pride. If he was a personified virtue, he'd be Diligence or Chastity. how about both?
- I tend to be an Entry Pimp for Marvel, many webcomics, and animes I like. And I tend to be a Serial Tweaker too. May Odin bless the TVTropes servers.
- I can't stand pedantry and anti-intellectualism, envious and jealous people and all that stuff, and vinegar.
- I'll never be fully satisfied with this troper page. I'll always find something to improve, edit, reword, cut or add. Perfectionism is a long and difficult task.
- I am very much part of the TONGS. My spoiler policy is: unless it's really necessary for the example (or a case of It Was His Sled), avoid spoilering things, even with spoiler tags. Many people will thank you. Trust me.
- Vagueness is your friend. While context is very important, you can carefully word your example to avoid unnecessary details that could spoil other things. That way you'll manage to tell your major plot point example without spoiling more than absolutely necessary.
- This is the end of the page. You can go home now.
