[up][up] Your most common problem is the kind of run-on sentences known as "comma splices". You can read more about them and different ways of fixing them here. I would recommend not using the same kind of fix too many times in a row.

EDITED, and thanks :)

some tropes for

YMMV ONE PIECE

  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Whenever there is a discussion about a Straw Hat who hasn't received much screentime recently, the one most frequently brought up is Chopper who, since Thriller Bark, hasn't received a moment which showcased his abilities and only served as device to heal the crewmembers or as a mascot.

for One Piece in general

a brief description and tropes for Fishman Island

Thanks to being located indide a giant bubble, it allows land-races to breathe and live inside, while the giant tree Eve provides light hundreds of meters below the sea.

  • Awesome Underwater World: Fishman Island is known as "underwater paradise" and truly deserves its title. It's a bright and wacky version of Atlantis, with colorful buildings made or covered by giant corals.
  • Fantastic Racism: Fishmen and Merfolk have been the subject of racism and slavery by humans, especially the celestial dragons. As a result, the inhabitants of Fishman island have a lot of prejudices toward humans to the point they become ingrained in the entire society, a problem which Otohime fought hard to remove. It gets partially solved only after the Strawhats save the island, proving not all humans are bad.
  • Underwater City: The city is located below the redline, inside a giant bubble therefore allowing land-races to breath in the island. Being underwater, it's very difficult to reach, and only 30% of the ships survive the travel.

  • Our Mermaids Are Different: Merfolk in One Piece's world resembles classic mermaids, with a human upper body and a fish tail. However, the fish-type changes from mermaid to mermaid, covering all species of fish, from goldfish to shark, and even mollusks like Hyouzou, a blue-rings octopus merman. They can breed with humans, creating mermaid-human hibrids, or with fishmen, with whom they can give birth to either fishmen or merfolk, but not hybrids. Female mermaids' tails split when they reach the age of 30, allowing them to walk on land.

[up]

  • In the phrase "showcased his strenght", you misspelled "strength". Swap the "h" and the "t" around.
  • Here on this wiki we're not supposed to put two tropes on the same bullet point like you did with "Our Mermaids Are Different-Fish People". They each get their own bullet point like this:


  • In the phrase "it allows land-races to breath and live inside", you used the noun "breath" where you need the verb "breathe" instead.
  • "provides light even houndreds meters below the sea"... at least two mistakes here:
    • I'm not sure why the word "even" is in there
    • "houndreds" makes me picture red hound dogs [lol] — you misspelled "hundreds".
    • You need to put "of" in between "hundreds" and "meters" like this: "hundreds of meters"
  • In the phrase "It's a bright and whacky version of Atlantis" I'm pretty sure it's spelled "wacky" (and the computer agrees with me, there's a red wavy line under "whacky" and none under "wacky") — other than that, your spelling and grammar is great with the Awesome Underwater World entry.
  • The phrase "As result the inhabitants" needs a comma and an "a" thusly: "As a result, the inhabitants"
  • In the phrase "become ingraned in the entire society", "ingraned" is supposed to be spelled "ingrained".
  • Multiple mistakes in the phrase "Female mermaids' tail splits up"
    • "tail" needs to be plural "tails"
    • likewise "splits" needs to be "split"
    • The phrase "split up" is used when referring to groups (for example Let's Split Up, Gang), not anatomy. So take out the "up" and leave the "split".
    • (this is more of a nitpick) I personally would add an extra phrase to describe how the tails split, like "split in half" or "split vertically down the middle".
  • In the phrase "only the 30% of the ships" you have an extra "the" — one before the "30%" needs to be removed, thusly: "only 30% of the ships"

[up] x 5 @mmiovv2

I will correct your post here.

I'm not sure what's the problem exactly with this page, <- space although I was rushing it due to the 3 days thing, <- space unless I'm misunderstanding and my page isn't gonna get nuked after 3 days (I'm a newbie here), <- space but even with that, <- comma I kept polishing it to be as easy to understand as much as possible. <- period However, people in the discussion kept suggesting that its grammar is still horrible with it, <- space so please could somebody help?

1. Whenever the letter I is used by someone to refer to themselves, it is always capitalized. E.g. I, I'm, I'll, etc.

2. The first word of a sentence is always capitalized.

3. Whenever you use a comma in a sentence, you always put a space after it.

If you follow these simple rules, about half of your problems in that post go away.

You should also try to get a spelling checker.

~FigureGunplaFan, this post:

  • Works like films get italicized, i.e. Spider-Man.
  • How do you know this is in response to that?
  • It does not meet the description of Creator Backlash, which is backlash against a work or part of the work that becomes popular. Backlashing against a media company is not the same.
  • The grammar is fine.

~FigureGunplaFan, this post:

  • The cover art for the anime's 9th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Box (Forever Edition) features a pose from Nozomi and Eli's pose that makes it look like they're dry-humping.
    • The write-up is longer than it has to be, and is fairly awkward. If you're trying to emphasize the pose, consider putting it towards the beginning of the sentence instead of the end. A more succinct write-up would be something like "Nozomi and Eli's pose on [x] cover makes it look like they're dry-humping."
    • That being said, I'm shying away from using "dry humping" because it seems more...vulgar than it has to be.

    • Again, please italicize film pages. Please see How to Create a Works Page.
    • I replaced "a" with "the", because you are identifying Dark Fate as the sole accepted work by James Cameron, in explicit contrast to the others.

The Aristocats

  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Roquefort becomes a father, in the Disney Marie book by Kitty Richards, which takes place after the events of the film. The book introduces a new character named "Roquefort Jr" who is his son. Roquefort Jr looks exactly like Roquefort but with a different fur color and much smaller. Roquefort Jr serves as Marie's companion and bodyguard throughout the book.

  • Big Sister Instinct: While Marie is only a kitten, she plays the big sister role in the Kitty Richards book with Roquefort Jr. In the book, Marie decides to travel around Paris, France for the day with Roquefort Jr as a bodyguard and companion. However, Marie spots the young mouse about to get eaten by a stray kitten. She tries to politically ask him to leave Roquefort Jr alone until she hisses at him scaring the kitten and saving the mouse's life.

  • Nightmare Face: Marie uses this as a scare tactic in order to rescue Roquefort Jr from a stray kitten in the Kitty Richards book.

Roquefort becomes a father <- no comma in the Disney Marie book by Kitty Richards, which takes place after the events of the film. The book introduces a new character named "Roquefort Jr.", <- comma who is his son. Roquefort Jr. looks exactly like Roquefort, <- comma but with a different fur color and much smaller. Roquefort Jr. serves as Marie's companion and bodyguard throughout the book.

While Marie is only a kitten, she plays the big sister role in the Kitty Richards book with Roquefort Jr. In the book, Marie decides to travel around Paris, France for the day, <- comma with Roquefort Jr. as a bodyguard and companion. However, Marie spots the young mouse (What young mouse?) about to get eaten by a stray kitten. She tries to politically ask him to leave Roquefort Jr. alone until she hisses at him, <- comma scaring the kitten and saving the mouse's life.

^ You could change "the young mouse" (which implies that the reader already knows who they are) to "a young mouse", which doesn't.

In the Kitty Richards book, Marie uses this as a scare tactic in order to rescue Roquefort Jr. from a stray kitten.

New work page working in progress:

Work: Toys / 30 Minutes Missions

Laconic: A model kit series which allows you to mass produce grunt robots within 30 minutes and customize them.


Toys / 30 Minutes Missions

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/30_minutes_missions_logo.png

30 Minutes Missions is a model kit series developed by Bandai. It consists of mass-produced mecha units with modular runner placements, interchangeable parts and limitless possibilities of customization. True to its name, all the kits only require 30 minutes or less to build, and the 30mm adapters are compatible with all of the previous High Grade model kits developed by Bandai, allowing the players to create their own Ace Custom units from scratch.

Several decades has passed since a mysterious incident known as "Skyfall", when a space transition gate known as the "Gate" appeared on the Earth orbit.

Wars and conflicts are still happening around the world, but a new weapon has changed the ways of modern combat. The weapon in question is the Extended Armament & Module Assemble & Combine System, also known as the EXAMACS, a type of mass-produced mecha units with modular and interchangeable parts, allowing them to adapt to various environments and situations easily. The introduction of the EXAMACS has drastically changed the military balance of the world.

At the end of the year 2XXX, the same space transition gate has appeared again above the Earth orbit.

As the Gate appears, an alien race known as the Byron suddenly emerge from the Gate and attacks every nation on Earth with the Portanova units, a series of mecha units similar to the EXAMACS.

The nations throughout the world decide to form the Earth Alliance Force to fend off the Byron Army, and the war between the Earth Alliance Force and Byron Army is cut off and dropped.

This work provides examples of:

  • Ace Custom: Even though the units are meant to be mass-produced units, you can attach various armor parts and weapons to build your own unique unit.
  • Humongous Mecha: The kits are in 1/144 scale like the rest of the High Grade model kits made by Bandai, meaning that they're almost as tall as a Mobile Suit.
  • Mecha Expansion Pack: The Option Armor and Option Weapon sets provide addition armor parts and weapons for your EXAMACS units, they also happen to be literal expansion packs as they are sold separately.
  • Mook Mobile: The major selling point of the series is that you can easily build an army of mass-produced grunt units. 30 minutes or less per unit if you skip the panel lining and painting.
  • Palette Swap: The EXAMACS units and Option Armor parts are available in various different colors, allowing you to mix-and-match the the color palettes if you have multiple kits with different colors.
