Fair enough.

For reference, here is what I've done so far. (I'll be adding more information later, obviously.)

I was thinking about writing analysis on Vampires Are Sex Gods when I read this thread and noticed that Juan Carlos was working on it... but then apparently abandoned, as there is no Analysis page for this trope. It looks really good, so I'd rather not hijack your work without you knowing. So are you still working on it? And if not, can I use parts of your text in my analysis?

I was thinking of writing an essay for Outlast and it's DLC Whistleblower, with a focus of analyzing the story. Within the essay, I wanted to address two questions that kept popping up in my brain during the game:

1. Can this game be considered homophobic? 2. Does this game stigmatize the mentally ill? (Think the trope Insane Equals Violent)

I know both of those questions are pretty loaded, so I'll present the short answers now as follows:

1. The game is very vague about its presentation, so it may be one of those if-you're-looking-for-it kind of themes. 2. No, not if you take a closer look at the game's layout, the documents in game and how the characters interact with each other.

For question 1 I wanted to analyze the antagonists in the game and the threat level that they present to the player character, and whether or not it is in fact homophobia on the part of the developers or just them putting on an extra level of fear for players who are already there.

For question 2 I wanted to point out the different levels in the game, particularly the prison area, since it wouldn't be much of a stretch to guess that a good portion of the violent patients in the game come from there. Also, from the documents the player finds, up until relocation to Mount Massive most of the patients weren't violent to begin with.

Basically I'd like to know if I'm headed in the right direction with this essay or if there are some flaws or confusion in the setup I've presented here. Constructive criticism is welcome.

Posting it here because it's related to this thread's topic.

Sandbox.Analysis Anti Villain is apparently a draft Analysis/ page by ~randomtroper89. Does anybody disagree with launching it?

Okay I don't think quite yet, but where getting here. We still need the remove the examples. Perhaps the more descriptive examples could be moved to the pages, while the zero context should be removed outright.

Also I'm not sure what we should do with the type V examples. I don't think Designated Villain quite fits, because it refers to villains who are treated like evil by the work despite not being so.

So, I made an Analysis page for The Nightmare Before Christmas (here) relating the film to the German Expressionism movement. It's not the most in-depth page, but first things first I want to check that it's appropriate for the site. I had originally thought, well, if I relate it to the tropes the movement used... The end result, however, doesn't actually link much to tropes on the site, just the occasional old work.

I'd make the case, though, that e.g. using set design and lighting to convey a mood, using the visual trappings of another genre, etc. are all fundamentally tropes.

I want to write a semi-analysis of Sponge Bob Square Pants, but there's already something there. Does that mean I'm prevented from writing any else there?

This has come up in the past. My sense is that writing a new Analysis beneath the previous one, under its own header, may make sense.

[up] OK then; it'll take a little while to write but I'll get on it today.

So I want to write an analysis on Shipping in the Arrowverse, similar to the one written about the nickelodeon one. My questions are: Is this okay? I talk about tropes obviously, but it's also about fandom. Can I use links as evidence/references? Is it going to be removed if someone doesn't agree or thinks it's controversial? [lol]

[up] Sorry I'm late.

...I think it's fine, if there's something good to be said about it. Controversial stuff doesn't ALWAYS stay in YMMV, as long as you try to keep it neutral and informative rather than persuasive, which sounds like what you're doing.

You're in the clear!

Hello. It’s nice to meet you. I wrote an analysis (On the morality in Kung Fu Panda film series) of Kung Fu Panda. Do you think the analysis I wrote is good enough?

Can I add a "Heroic Tropes Outside of White" to the Magic the Gathering analysis page? I have a lot of ideas about that.

Hi, I'm thinking of writing an analysis page for Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors as I find the page too long. As a start, I'm thinking of transferring the list of elements and what they are strong/weak to the analysis page. On the way, I want to expand on it, giving one element a folder, then a list of elements in bulletin form, write what's their relation and the reason behind it and, finally, list out examples of such relation. I am currently writing a sample on my sandbox page.

[ADDED] To avoid duplicate combinations, I have made everything branches points instead.

Gender-Blender Name is a wordy mix of examples and explanations. I think the explanations and general examples should be moved to a Useful Notes or Analysis page.

How well does it match the trope?
