Oh look, I've finally updated my image. And this caption is from years ago.

Enough expository banter! Today we fight like men! And ladies! And ladies who dress like men! For bwburke94... IT IS DESCRIBING TIME!

I'm a troper from Massachusetts. Real name Brendan Burke, which I make no attempt to hide. I'm also occasionally a fanfic writer... well, I would be, except for Schedule Slip.


I have received a Made of Win on two occasions:
A contribution I have made has been listed on Funny/TV Tropes on at least three occasions:
  • For a creatively-worded The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess joke on Hello, [Insert Name Here]. The gag still exists, but some idiot decided to explain the joke and the entry was removed from Funny/ for that reason. note 
  • Advertisement:
  • For creating the (now redlinked) SelfDemonstrating.Denning page.
    Denning: "This is a message from Lord Nergal. I await you on the Dread Isle. This is a message from Lord Nergal..."
  • For participating in the Beast/Bowser Bohemian Parody ATT thread, though I admit I was merely a contributor and not the only person behind it.

Tropes and Useful Notes applying to myself:

Tropes applying to my "Circle B" logo and its later variants:

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b45_256px.png
  • Logo Joke: Several - most of which were recreated when I updated my logo later on.
    • The original Circle B (September 2013) had only one variant, coloring the circle red and white (mimicking a Poké Ball) for Pokémon fansites.
    • The second incarnation of the logo (February 2014) had three variants — the Pokémon variant returned, along with new variants for Fan Fiction Dot Net note  and the Out Of The Park Baseball forums note .
    • The third incarnation of the logo (September 2014) introduced three new variants, all involving changing the B to another letter: two for my bwburkeMusic and bwburkeGaming YouTube channels note , and one for my 20th birthday Facebook profile picture note . In addition, the OOTP variant was redesigned note  to avoid confusion between my avatar and that of a forum administrator.
    • The third-and-a-half incarnation (November 2014) note  had one new variant, for Gallifrey Base note .
    • The fourth incarnation introduced variants for (deep breath...) TV Tropes note , YouTube again note , Skype note , Fan Fiction Dot Net again note , SportsLogos.net note , Twitter twice note , chess.com note , and so on. All previous variants were also revamped for the new color scheme.
    • The fourth-and-a-half incarnation (December 2015/January 2016) note  has far too many variants to note, as this was the point I started doing logo variants for every site I use the logo on.

Tropes applying to me on This Very Wiki:

  • Catch-Phrase: In my edit summaries.
    • "CLOUD-TO-BUTT ALERT!" Context 
    • "It's Chekhov with an H." Context 
    • "It's spelled [name] dammit" Context 
    • "This is not Attack of the The Eye Creatures" Context 
    • "_______ are not _______." Context 
    • "Worm examples go in Literature." Context 
    • Former catchphrases:
      • "Anti-natter-fication" Context 
      • "Into every generation, ________ is born." Context 

Tropes applying to my other Internet hobbies:

  • I was a regular on BrantSteele (the site with the Hunger Games simulator) long before it became popular.
  • Ascended Meme: I named my Wikia bot account "Quit In Protest Bot", as a reference to my infamous rant on Survivor ORG Wiki.
  • Overly Preprepared Gag: Seems to be my specialty.
    • I joined Smogon in 2010 specifically to make a Metang@ joke on New Year's Eve of 2012, two and a half years later. The site admins were not amused.
    • In early 2012, I created a new Wikipedia Sock Puppet account. Its name, when anagrammed, foreshadowed the account's main purpose... which wouldn't become clear until over a year later in 2013.
    • I topped 2012's Smogon prank with a 2013 joke on a sports message board (which will remain unnamed) that I had set up with a gag on a different board in 2005.
  • Significant Anagram: I tend to anagram my name or my other common aliases when I need to act "anonymously". It never works.
