Follow TV Tropes
Sounds like an Unusual Euphemism for sex, right? Or maybe Spy Speak for sex? Nope, it's pretty much "a pick up line that works instantly" or "onscreen Instant Seduction"
Somehow has 101 inbounds, but only 20 wicks.
I had originally put this as Ambiguous Name, but I changed it to Needs Help because the description is kind of excessively long and detailed, and the examples are riddled with ZC Es and just plain pickup lines. So it seems like it needs some cleanup.
EDIT: As a side note, I also suspect that Instant Seduction gets misused as this trope a lot (since nothing about Instant Seduction's name indicates that it's offscreen). I'm going to do a wick check on Instant Seduction at some point to confirm. Just something to keep in mind.

Okay, Instant Seduction wick check:
Accidental Pornomancer: Tough to tell, it doesn't seem to be "offscreen"
Bitter Moon: ZCE
Cabin Fever: Code Word Coitus
Charlie Chaplin: Correct
Cruel Intentions: Code Word Coitus
Delivery Guy Infiltration: Code Word Coitus
Divine Date: Misuse
Don Giovanni: Code Word Coitus
Evil Dead: Code Word Coitus
Fate Oath Alternative: Unclear, but I believe correct
Those... aren't good numbers. 6/10 are wrong.
Honestly, I don't see why we need separate tropes for onscreen Instant Seduction and offscreen.

I'm not seeing the distinction between these tropes. There's not even a real on-screen/off-screen difference; the header may state that but the examples don't bear it out.
Just merging them into Instant Seduction seems best.
Supporting a merge, here.
I'm certainly in favor of a merge.
sounds like a plan. If I knew how to make crowners I'd whip up a page action crowner right now for this
@tryrar: See How Crowners Work.
Merging has 10 supports and no opposes.
Almost two weeks in, 11 for merge, 0 against. Is that enough for a merge?

I would wait for a handful more votes.
Calling for a merge.
Instant Seduction is more of an offscreen moment. Do we remove the references to it being offscreen during the merge?

Since it already had examples with onscreen seduction, yes.
I took care of the merge, tagging and description rewrite. The only remaining wick is on a locked page and the request in the edit requests thread is already pending.
