Follow TV Tropes
As the New Year is slowly but surely drawing closer, this fun idea occurred to me recently. What are your favorite memories of TV Tropes? :)
When Afterwards used to gush about Kingdom Hearts and complain about Kingdom Hearts III
Managing to help create a community in Forum Games that is The Murderverse.
Simply finding it, many years ago. The wiki gives a descriptive word for so many re-occurring things in fiction, most of which I already knew about but couldn't describe in few words. For many years I felt frustrated because I had so few friends and acquaintances who were as pop-culture savvy as me, which made it difficult for me to explain various simple concepts and realizations, without first in-depth talking about a piece of fiction that you'd expect most people to be already familiar with.
I couldn't agree more. :)
I have two favorite memories.
One was when I became known as the troper with smoochable and punchable crushes.
The other was when I broke a troper by saying I wanted to kiss Red guy and Duck.
The Toonami Thread is always fun to hang out in, but one of the jokes we made sticks out in particular in my memory. We made this funny exchange about the opening line in FLCL Progressive.
"The world must be destroyed before it can become beautiful." "Oh yeah? Watch the ending of Avengers: Infinity War and then get back to us on that. " "Haruko, I don't feel so good..."
Reading the Heartwarming Pages.
And Meeting in no particular order James Shields, Bright Light,darkabomination, Demetrios, Gunheart,fishysaur and others.

Joining Anti-Necro and finding a community of people.
Later migrating to the Trash Heap after the Meltdown.
Starting the forum thread for Kurzgesagt was something I did. But the "favorite memory" part comes in when other tropers started partaking in the thread too.
Like Mara, running into this website. :)
Specifically first making my account. I had lurked for years beforehand but finally getting in on it felt magical. It hasn't even been a year and it already feels like the magic is gone. Site's still perfectly fine though.

Launching False Prophet—my first ever TLP—with no one having anything negative to say about it.
I remember when Huney B's birthday co-incided wuth anti-necro reaching page 1000, that was a nice day
I remember when I first READ TV Tropes! Those really were the days!
This funny exchange I inadvertently made in the Headscratchers section for Futurama.
Remember Anti-Necro? I actually really liked that place for a while.
I remember how I first stumbled onto this site. My grandmother sent me a series of books called The Fionavar Tapestry. I'm not into High Fantasy so I looked it up and found the page for it.
Been browsing ever since.
I know everybody has a love/hate relationship with YouTube's comment section, but I do like this memory of it. Somebody on YouTube once quoted my entry on the Nightmare Fuel page. The one that said that the super-scary sheep the White Queen turned into is the kind of sheep Satan counts when he has trouble falling asleep.
The whole Wiki Walk experience. There's nothing quite like it. Looking up my favorite works and going straight to the Character pages never gets old.
Oh and I was pretty active with WMG at one point.
Good times, good times.

Bump with one I recently remembered. I felt very flattered when Ferret (who I miss ) sad it was rad that a few of my characters have Irish names. :)

How well does it match the trope?
