Creation and purpose of TV Tropes:
- Well, duh. Didn't you get the memo?
- We can safely say this is a self-fulfilling/vicious circle sort of thing. Who writes about writers? Other writers.
- A very long list of personal anecdotes was originally given here, but was cut for being First-Person Writing. So, confirmed?
- Alternatively: TVTropes ruined your life Thirty-Five Minutes Ago.
- It can cause you to open multiple browsers, too. How else can you compare corollaries between shows and characters?
- We do?
- Shesama is just a really respectable transvestite ninja cook!
- Considering how often I end up on a page I already thought I'd read, only to find it has changed beyond all recognition, I'm guessing I got the Microsoft version.
- I choose to resent that. Bloody Mac/Linux users...
- I have this variation:No:
Start surfing in YouTube, DeviantArt, other wikis or Brawl Inthe Family
- Hm. That could also apply to Star Trek, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Futurama, and every other Trope Overdosed universe. Except I'm fans of those.
- Not to mention Haruhi, Warhammer 40,000, and Survival of the Fittest.
- And Avatar: The Last Airbender. Don't forget that one.
- Don't forget xkcd. And Cracked.
- And WMG was to evangelize... Evangelion (pun intended)!
- The concept of page images was made to evangelize The Order of the Stick, Girl Genius, and Sinfest.
- You know what, let's just say TV Tropes was created to evangelize everything and leave it at that.
- Really, people are just constantly losing when they come here. By the way, you just lost.
- *** it!
- Actually, no, I have immunity.
- Alternately, there's a second version of the Game on TV Tropes where the objective it to lose as often as possible, thus increasing traffic through TV Tropes.
- My social life was already destroyed way before. Nice try, though.
- There is one mythical troper who is immune to that effect. That troper... it's me! I'm even immune to saying Candle Jack. See, I didn't disappear in the mid sent...
ence. Sorry, I had to sneeze.
There, I went and finished the two sentences for him. Isn't that nice of me?Yes, you are a nice person. Anyone else want to join in on our invisible conversation?
- TV Tropes: Emperor of Mankind.
- BLASPHEMY! MADNESS!!
- Summary Execution! * BLAM*
- Actually, it's going to eventually be forcibly taken over by Wikipedia. In that way, Wikipedia will have most of the world's knowledge, and since Knowledge Is Power, it's part of Jimbo Wales' plan for omnipotence. OUR ONLY HOPE IS TO RESIST TAKEOVER!
- Which created TV Tropes: The TV Show in the process.
- And their leader is a Magnificent Bastard whose wars are always won, Exactly as Planned. Truly a formidable force.
It's a website dedicated to ruining the vocabulary of anyone, excess snarkiness, and coming up with insane/inane theories on nearly everything. Many sites outside of TV Tropes tend to look upon it with disdain, because tropers will always come in, use obscure and hard-to-understand terms, demand that everyone understand these terms immediately, spam the website with links to TV Tropes, pimp TV Tropes at every opportunity, and so forth. This naturally will annoy people. Even 4chan is annoyed by TV Tropes.
Tropers don't mean to troll, they just do it automatically as a result of their programming.
Also: Troper is just a few letters away from Troller
Wait, how come we are saying TV Tropes is a kind of Virus? Let's reverse-engineer TV Tropes' anatomy for a bit. These Tropes? These mimetic, harmless Tropes which serve as TV Tropes' and contemporary fiction's backbone? They are the primary genetic material. This entire website is just a capsule designed to ensure that the genetic-code (Tropes) are safe. Try taking a Wiki Walk for example. Oh look! Interesting words are on the way! Let's see.... (uses Tabbed Browsing many times) Congratulations, bub. You just infected yourself with the Virus' code. Now before your eyes you will see your life being ruined bit by bit while the virus remakes your brain in its own image. However, this Virus, TV Tropes, is smart enough to keep a list of infected media, in the form of the Contributors pages (the people infected by Tropes) and the Main pages (fiction and entire domains and media infected by Tropes) to ensure the evolution and survival of the Tropeic genetic code.
There are many effects of the Virus, and some of them includes:
- For the ordinary average joe, a ruined life. When the ordinary man infects himself with the Trope virus, he ceases to become ordinary. At first, the ordinary man cannot see fiction in the usual way before. Then he cannot see Real Life in the usual way before. This is actually the Virus corrupting the person's soul. His perception is slowly corrupted, causing his social, and later physical, life to be ruined...before his own eyes.
- Epileptic Trees. Epileptic Trees are mutated plants which were infected with special variations of the Trope virus, and emit special electromagnetic and metaphysical waves which cause any viewer to kill the author and create random plots in any media so more Epileptic Trees can grow on those media. They are found mostly abundant in Lost Island, showing that Lost Island is actually one of Tropes' most infected domains. Tokyo-3 is also near another massive Epileptic tree forest.
- Delusions of random symbolism, most specifically, delusions that everyone is actually Jesus and everywhere is Purgatory. When the Trope virus gets into your neurons, it first struggles against the Religion viruses (for reasons of preserving civility, this is solely meant for
pseudoscientific purposes), and eventually, the Trope virus merges with the dominant Christianity strain. The eventual effect? Perceiving Jesus everywhere. The Christianity Strain might make you only see a single Jesus, but when the Christianity Strain combines with the Trope Virus, it destroys the psyche so much that the poor victim ends up seeing Jesuses everywhere.
- Like the above, delusions that everything is about sex. This happens when the Trope Virus merges with the Freudian Id (the unconscious part of the mind that functions according to the Pleasure Principle, in other words, the part of the mind which is responsible for sexual desire). Thus, the Trope Virus redirects the Libidinal flow of the Id to the senses. The effects include perceiving everything that is longer than it is wide and penetrates something as a penis.
- Another variation of the Trope Virus is one that infects bugs. Arthropodus Tropeis are a brand new species of insects that were infected with the "codename: It Just Bugs Me" genetic code. A. Tropeis latches itself onto a hapless person, causing the person to be irritated, but somehow, A. Tropeis alters the person's perception, causing him to notice even the slightest mistake, and make twisted logic on it. This is called by experts as "Fridge Logic".
- Special mutated beings called Tropers. Tropers might look like your average human at first, but they are actually a subspecies of humanity that was so used to the Trope virus they end up loving it. We would tell you how a Troper functions. Remember the Diclonius? Diclonius are a subspecies of humanity that were born because their parents were infected by the vector virus, but through the vector virus, they gained special powers. They can use their vectors to manipulate objects around them. Most Diclonius have ruined social lives, shunned by the normal populace around them. Well the Troper works the same. Simply replace Diclonius with Troper and Vectors with Tropes. Tropers are a class of humanity that were created because of the Trope Virus, but through the trope virus, they gained special powers. They can use their tropes to manipulate objects (specifically, the plot that keeps everything running) around them. Most Tropers have ruined social lives, shunned by the populace around them. Unlike Diclonius, however (Diclonius deal with the social stigma through mass murder), most Tropers are hikikomorized since their ability to function in Real Life has been stripped away, but a miniature special group of Genre Savvy Tropers can deal with the plot of Real Life.
- The most obvious symptom that marks terminal Trope infection: No Fourth Wall. A Fourth Wall is what keeps reality and fiction apart. We would tell you how the Fourth Wall functions. Remember the AT Field? An AT Field is what keeps humans apart. Destroying the AT Field will result in a Mind Screw called Instrumentality, where all humans are merged together in an archetypal existence. A similar effect will happen if the Fourth Wall is finally destroyed, causing all continuities to merge into one single Mega Crossover. Why does the Tropes carry this risk? Answer: Tropes know no boundaries. They treat Real Life as just another domain bounded by Narrative Causality for them to subject into mimesis, and thus infect. Unlike Wikipedia (which is still bounded by deletions) and more like Spiral Power, Tropes will simply expand to incorporate all media and break any walls in the way. Still not convinced? See This page for evidence.
- So, The Virus Tropes? Holy shit. Even the name matches.
- Other symptoms: Tabbed Browsing, love for fictional characters, Breaking the Fourth Wall, Magnificent Bastardry, nihilism, immorality, complete immorality, Black-and-Gray Morality, Blue-and-Orange Morality, overuse of "Xanatos Gambits", overuse of "Xanatos Gambits" even though he isn't Xanatos, overuse of "Chessmaster" even though he is a total flop in chess, hating God, believing in the "Awesome", believing in the "Awesome" even though it isn't Awesome in normal standards, genre savviness, genre blindness, contractual genre blindness, using dangerous substances called "Applied Phlebotinum", turning into a Large Ham, breaking cute characters (and sometimes ending up being the one broken), believing that all psychology was invented by Sigmund Freud, believing in Sigmund Freud to the point of seeing phallic imagery everywhere, believing in Sigmund Freud to the point of explaining how one became evil, worshipping Time Lords, worshipping Haruhi Suzumiya, worshipping both Haruhi Suzumiya and the Time Lords, worshipping Time Lords and Haruhi Suzumiya along with Shinji Ikari and the entire setting of Warhammer 40,000, most especially Warhammer 40000 (with Chainswords, I mind you), killing the author with fire, killing everything with fire, killing yourself, Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking. There are many more, countless to be exact, but jaywalking is always the last symptom. See the Main Tropes Index for all the effects (and strains) of the virus.
The Trope Virus is considered by many to be an incurable and highly-contagious disease, to the extent that only a full Exterminatus can destroy the virus, along with the rest of the world. However, being infected by the Trope Virus isn't always bad. With the right infections and enough skill, the virus will actually enhance your life and curse you with awesome. Also, the Troper Tales page shows how these surviving tropers dealt with the Apocalypse.
- This one guess? This one is true. Although TV Tropes and other metaphysical viruses are better known as memes (not the Memetic Mutation ones, but the concept Richard Dawkins originally created to describe how mimetic pieces of culture and religion are spread).
- Also, Carl Jung still lives, and is a key editor. Because this WMG needs to get even better
I just saw the Real Life Wild Mass Guesses and it seems TV Tropes is in support of Solipsism (it encourages people to treat Real Life as a thing you can inject with fanon). TV Tropes originally had the sole purpose of comparing fiction using omnipresent (but hidden) ideas and plot devices called "tropes", which are usually the common but subtle things found in seemingly different works of fiction. However, by including Real Life in its catalogue of Tropes, TV Tropes revealed its true colors: promoting Solipsism and treating Reality as another work of fiction which is nothing more but a shadow of these Tropes and an imagination that we have created.
- Apparently, they succeeded.
- I originally thought Idealism is a more appropriate term (Idealism is also the denial of objective reality, but it supports the existence of God or gods), but I prefer solipsism to add an existentialist touch.
- Eventually, once it has enough power, it shall reboot the universe in its own image. All existence shall be replaced by a trope-rich multiverse governed by the Theory of Narrative Causality.
- And some say this has already happened...
- Therefore, the TV Tropes Wiki will eventually become Haruhi Suzumiya.
- Which of course means the reboot will happen August 8th this year. Goodie.
- And which also means that the World Creation Project will eventually grow to include aliens, time travellers, and espers. And Kyon... who is also the Doctor.
- The Great Server Crash of '08 was actually caused by the Wiki practicing its powers. How do we know? The Erased From Existence Trope Launch Pad draft had the most replies at the time- an act of unconscious voting by the hive mind on a course of action.
- Alternatively The Great Crash was an external force trying to stop the wiki before it fully awakened.
- Bloody time travelers, always thinking they know what's best. That's what it was. They tried to prevent some horrible alternate future caused by the Tropes Wiki. And what did we do? We rebuilt the *** thing. Oh dear god, we've doomed the earth.
- "Doomed?" Why? That sounds awesome! I could finally pursue my secret dream of becoming an exciting vigilante superhero.
- In truth, I'm some sort of opposite Haruhi, as I always am bored, and bad things happen when I'm amused.
- Nah, some people are too much of morons to be tropers.
- I am not sure TV Tropes is, but I know Homestuck is. Which, by the way, corrupted me! why don't you join us?
- Not true. You might also be a Mauve Shirt, a Recurring Extra, or an Ensemble Dark Horse, among many others possibilities.
- Real Life has loads of characters.
- When I look into the mirror, all I see is an eggpla...
- <Chomp> :-P Hmmmmm eggplant!
- I'm seeing two watermelons... Oh, wait.
- I don't see anything. Oh, wait...forget I said anything.
- Really? I see some mechanical- oh... oh god...
However, the (possibly time-travelling) schemers know we naturally gravitate towards places where information can be shared, so they disguised their 'superhero-spawning matchmaker site' as the fun, snarky wiki we know and love.
This explains why every Troper Tales page results in proposals of marriage and child-bearing, not to mention Troper Shipping; we're being shepherded into making good partnership choices to produce 'superior stock'. Eventually, our descendants will develop psychic powers and other mutations (or just L/Batman / Monk-level brilliance) and be drafted as supersoldiers by whoever's running the show.
However, this gambit is only a small part of an entire network of plans by the schemers' opposition; the 'tropes-as-MacGuffin' ploy is played straight in the above strategy, but subverted overall, because as long as this site remains operational, its description and demystification of narrative devices robs them of their power when people attempt to invoke them in the real world. All of our knowledge can be preserved here to guide the generations that follow, and no good troper would Jump At The Call without asking a lot of questions first; questions whose answers would no doubt lead to most of them forming La Résistance.
Just think; a world where every superhero is meta-aware, all the time...
Note: Only one operative of the singular conspiracy is aware of the wider Gambit Roulette in play; his efforts to abort the mission resulted in the Great Crash.
- So it's a breeding program designed to produce people who are either prescient or immune to prescience. Obviously, it's either the Bene Gesserit or Leto II.
- Hey, Genre Savvy heroes are always the best kind!
- There's only one solution then. Gather up all the tropers into one nation, the Tropics of TV. Then, our social lives will BE TV Tropes, and we can use our superior genes to create a race of super tropers that will defend the world from vampires, monsters, aliens, espers, evil time travellers and other bad guys. After that, we take their stuff, their powers and their knowledge to rule the world! HA HA HA!
- Espers aren't really evil, but I'd be wary about the the sliders...
- How will we incorporate their knowledge and powers? Well, we would be a nation of nerds, so no doubt any turncoat or non-bad extranormal entities would end up adding to the gene pool.
There are no links, to other Trope pages, you just think there are. Your mind creates the pages you think you see. In fact if once you’ve visited TV Tropes, even if you physically write a new website address, you don’t leave you just think you do.
There is no escape!!!
One day the world of fiction will get so huge it'll rip a hole through the universe and the world will be invaded by Cliches, Scrappys, and Sues, all using the power of tropes to conquer us, summoning an Apocalypse Wow and using the power of Plot Hole(s) to destroy us.
Someone from the future lives in this dark future and went back to create This Very Wiki as a training ground, so when the time comes, we can ban together and use all of our Genre Savvy knowledge to defend our world.
Trope-tan, Crystal Dragon Jesus, Alice and Bob and This Troper will all be Chekhov's Gunman, and play huge parts in the war.
It will be called the Trope War, and it'll inspire the greatest story ever!
...We must be prepared.
- Plot twist- They've already done this. All of the media we see today came to be due to the centuries-long work of the survivors of an apocalypse too long ago to remember. (Possibly the sinking of Atlantis, along with its huge empire?) The wiki was left behind by them to use should the same ever happen again.
- It's spelt "it's".
- Tropers are Evas that are used to review Angels / Fiction.
He always references movies and tv, hangs a lampshade on almost anything and has a personality like some of us tropers. He is our creator and our god and so we must watch the show he has created that will soon present his creation of the site.
- Makes you speak in incomprehensible gibberish? Check. Reprogams your mind? Have you ever watched a show quite the same after visiting this site?
- On the note, the Wiki is a anarcho-communist cabal to undermine the concept of intelligent property.
- The wiki will become a Culture Mind when they finally decide to contact us.
- On the note, the Wiki is a anarcho-communist cabal to undermine the concept of intelligent property.
- You laugh, but some of us already do this.
- Just for the record, I've once said something like "You're saying he made all that money by working at a Burger Fool? That's like saying Epileptic Trees exist."
- Darmok: his eyes are opened!
- Blink Dawg gets what you're trying to do, but the actual quote is "Sokath, his eyes uncovered!".
- Oh, and also for the record, I, the same troper as above, have found Spock Speak to be a really good way of temporarily controlling your anger. You hide it within a pure logic masquerade, and at least it won't explode. Check this dialog: "It is likely that the attachment process will last for a sizeable amount of time, considering the lack of wi-fi network signal power... HAAAAAAA!!! 'BOUT TIME YOU ATTACHED THIS SH** , YOU MOTHERF*** ING SH** -A** CLUNKER!!!"
- Wasn't that the plot of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Darmok"? I remember there was this race who spoke only with references to old legends or something like that.
- When the great Anti-Fan/Anti-Creativity Attack comes, we will need to use it to defend ourselves.
- Ow, that is painful to think about.
- Well, you will. I'm just a Squishy Wizard.
- Don't hold out on us! Linear Warriors, Quadratic Wizards man!
- It's fine if he doesn't show up, by then we'll have gone through the Plus Game a few times anyway...
- I'm going to use a Game Shark.
- Impossible, someone will create a new trope, when we least expect! I bet there's already something to do with the LHC costumes in western cosplay conventions on board!
- Not clothes?
- We get clothes for defeating the Bonus Boss. A lampshade-shaped hat with no status effects and a Cloth shirt that lets you gain tropes without a minimum Notability score for examples. ...Wait. That (along with our logo) implies that we're already on the New Game Plus. Cool.
- Unfortunately, there will be one flaw in the plan. As every trope is subverted or deconstructed, a new one is born in its place as a result of everyone swarming to use the new trope. Think about it. Anti-Hero was formerly a Deconstruction of The Hero, but then it became so popular that it became a trope in itself. Wait, there's another closely-related flaw. Many tropes exist in a dichotomy, so subverting one is merely falling into another, and Take a Third Option is a trope in itself. A third flaw is that a Subverted Trope is not necessarily an indicator of quality, and several times actually is very annoying. So Once Again, the Day Is Saved, thanks to: The Fridge Logic!
- Besides, someone did that same plot already.
- Nah, maybe the Humanity will invent new, inimaginable tropes by this day. They're just like Pokémon.
- Jossed. WhatsApp is.
- That's actually the Sailor Trope's transformation phrase.
- TROPER PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWER MAKE UP!!1!11
- PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWER! ...itty bitty server space.
- ...Holy *** , that actually makes sense.
- You know, that does make sense!
- Eccentrica Gallumbitis, the Triple-Breasted Whore of Eroticon Six, or GTFO.
- You know, that does make sense!
- I realized that upon seeing the Amazon Kindle advertised with "wireless access to Wikipedia (among others)." That's The Guide, right there.
- My mind is now officially blown.
- And the Tropes Mirror Wiki is the guide 2.0.
- Crowning Moments, Nightmare Fuel and other YMMV items will have to be split into ones from individual episodes/chapters. And then individual scenes/pages.
- Troper Tales will overtake the forum.
- Edit wars will rage unchecked over the pages. Rule of Fun will throw custard pies with sniper-like accuracy against Serious Business wonks. Bluenose Bowdlerisers will make everything Lighter and Softer. Unthinking editors will commit acts of Rouge Angles of Satin.
- Trope Launch Pad will become a battleground of bickering over whether or not to include new entries.
- Entry Pimps will race to get their favourite work Trope Overdosed as a badge of honour.
- Dogs and cats will live together.
- Mass Hysteria!
- So, can I Shameless Self-Promote my fanfiction rite nao? Before it's The End of the World as We Know It?
- You mean a Scooty-Puff Sr. The Scooty-Puff Jr. sucks.
- 26% complete...
- Say, do you have to read each trope's entry completely? Do you have to read the examples too?
- Every word. Every letter. Even the ads. No one said becoming a god was easy.
- Not just some random god's powers. You get Haruhi's powers. Unfortunately for you, you don't get to know it, either. Also, laws about rape will apply to you.
- if that's the case kneel bitches
- Could someone tell me if this WMG is compatible with any variants of TV Tropes being a Hive Mind?
- Well, everybody gets their information there, so it's not like there would be a Wikipedia page to prove it existed...
- Tropers are actually unconscious Composers, drawn to the Wiki in order to be exposed to Narrativium, gain knowledge and wisdom, and, in the fullness of time, ascend in order to mend and weave the Great Plotline. All humans, ultimately, have this potential for ascension, but many unconsciously suppress it in order to keep the Universe from becoming a fanfic.
- Some really wish to have more time, not only for the tropes, but for everything. We aren't Time Lords after all, are we?
- Of course we aren't Time Lords. That is totally untrue. Why? Who suggested otherwise? And when did they say I was a Time Lord?
- No, I'm not :P
- Who? Me?
- Not always... Except if you're talking about these. Well, as far as I know, I'm still alive, but maybe reincarnation exists?
- I have never even BEEN to Purgatory!
- Stuck in Purgatory? Nah, the skiing's just that good up at 10000 ft.
- The Great Crash was the result of a climactic battle between the Aliens and The Men in Black. While the MIB's tried to destroy the wiki, the Aliens ultimately won.
- Of course we are aliens, MIB itself said that every clever/intelligent/famous person might be an alien in disguise! (Even though I do believe in Michael Jackson's part...)
- If so, he is one hell of a Mary Sue! (I don't care if it's Marty Stu, after all, he was a girl before, right?)
- This movie does exist?!? WANT.
- I like Nodwick, but it isn't that good.
- But then, Neon Genesis Evangelion isn't that good, but has way more entries than Planet Survival, which also has a Crapsack World, but it's just way more upbeat!
- Either we're all the same person from alternate realities, and TV Tropes is inter-, intra-, and extra dimensional, or
- We're in a perverse form of reincarnation: When one of us dies in the future, we're re-incarnated as a new person in the past. How do you keep track of the timeline? Someone has died in the future, been reborn, become a nerd, and logged onto here whenever a new contributor pops up.
- Third theory: We're all different regenerations of the same Time Lord, and TV Tropes Wiki is its/our TARDIS.
- Our Time Lord designation is "The Troper". The reason we haven't run out of regenerations is because of the massive power of all the information stored in the wiki. This is why we cannot stay away from the wiki. However, the extended regenerations have screwed up our ability to remember our past lives, which is why we can't instinctively tell we are a Time Lord, and why most of us can't use the wiki to travel Spacetime. We survived the last time war because we were busy cataloging all the Tropes, and weren't around to get owned, but The Doctor doesn't know we survived. Not that we could leave, anyway.
- Fourth theory: We're all different regenerations of the same Time Lord, and TV Tropes Wiki is its/our TARDIS and we regenerate in alternate realities.
- It might mean that all of us use glasses and have huge boobs. No exceptions.
- In that case, Jossed.
- Fifth Theory: We are all Sockpuppets of the same guy suffering from The Schizophrenia Conspiracy.
- Hinduism. Just Hinduism.
- I only wrote that to make you feel better. Actually, I am the Solipsist and you are all figments of my imagination. TAKE THAT! (I know, I just said that to parts of myself. But I don't need to explain this to you, because you are me.)
- Of course. We're all our own Author Avatars!
- So, I'm a WMG character? Eww.
- Yeah, I remember when that pesky hacker invaded three of my e-mails because he didn't like me anymore... What a jerk.
- The Word of God has Jossed this. MWA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
- Don't worry, there's plenty of troll on the IRC channel, I'm afraid.
- There always is. It's an IRC Channel, after all. BTW, have you ever heard of funnels?
- Good grief, you sure have a lot of time on your hands.
- And since we're all Time Lords that makes you The Master, and me The Doctor!
- No, these two people are named Alice and Bob.
- Quit Astroturfing (I'm sure we can excuse an Entry Pimp or three thousand if it's done by at least 50% of the troper populace) and stop making your Sock Puppets get into edit wars. It's getting annoying.
- That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.
- If that is meant to include this particular WMG (and it must; you said 'all') then... AUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
- Every time someone adds an entry about a certain work of fiction, it becomes true to that work in the real world unless it directly contradicts something by a previous editor.
- Actually, I was forcibly snatched from my fictional universe by some unknown being or force — and tossed into this terrible Real Life. Everything's unbearably mundane, there's no supernatural, everything is more deadly and more difficult to do, and the Rule of Cool manifests irresponsibly rarely. I want to go back where I belong, and thus work on abolishing the fourth wall, for the benefit of all the other potential 'verse-shifted.
- What if, rather than being here to destroy the Fourth Wall, our original (fictional) homes were destroyed, and us tropers are trying to recreate them via tropes?
- ...Curse you.
- I'm sorry, but in order to prevent a Logic Bomb, this theory must be jossed. "If TV Tropes is all a lie, then TV Tropes is not addictive, but I am addicted to it, so TV Tropes must be completely true, but..."
I mean, apart from you, who would spend their life witting Tropes?
Look at the Fanfic Recs page. I assure you, at least nine out of ten fanfictions have a troper as their writer. It's not like people are using Sock Puppets to rec their own fic. Or that tropers are recommending their own fics.
Unfortunate Implications are actually a sentient Hive Mind hellbent on destroying all entertainment, creativity, and imagination by offending the weak-minded, making writers take so many precautions that entertainment itself is not entertaining. The Troper that proposed Unfortunate Implications knew this and made it to increase awareness of the subject and to make future writers try their absolute hardest to prevent Unfortunate Implications from appearing in their stories.
- Coincidentally, LHC created Sailor Trope.
- No. But I'm not that Young or a Nerds, so I'm safe.
- I'm a nerd. Does the fact that I'm almost 20 complicate things?
- Oh, Crap!! Don't you know that when Light and Dark are out of balance, it could potentially cause The End of the World as We Know It?! (Seriously; look up antimatter if you don't believe me...)
- It ain't affecting me, though.....
If that's not enough to convince you, Trope Co. deals in tropes, and there is currently no trope describing a benevolent company.
- There's a little flaw in your plan: what if we are alerting people against the very ones you accuse us to be?
- ED-tan begs to differ. She says she was the Magnificent Bastard of the trio.
Which studios is up for speculation, but NBCUniversal is almost certainly among them.
- That explains why no one knows what site they were on, everyone else would get sucked in.
- Or he wants to promote his new album. Not nearly as wild, though.
- Actually, one of these theories is correct; that theory is "One of these theories is actually correct."
- So whatever you do, don't read any further.
- Possibly the Haruhi one.
- Logic Bomb!
- Blink Dawg is lying.
- Why wouldn't they?
- If so, Evangelion is in a really near future. Maybe in Islamic 2014.
- Ugh, my mind...
