And stopping Alistair isn\\\'t taking a third option. You actually don\\\'t have any option when he sacrifices himself to kill the archdemon. More to the point, however, the \\\"very bad precedent\\\" is nonsense. Why yes, the trope is notably averted in quite a few cases. No, that doesn\\\'t obligate us to list all of the aversions (and the thing about TV tropes is that you\\\'re not obligated to much at all), just like I don\\\'t list virtually every level in the game for MalevolentArchitecture or every staff in the game for MagicWand, etc., etc. Instead we just list the ones we like and the ones that are relevant. Which brings us back to context, the entry I added it to was about \\\'\\\'taking a third option with Connor\\\'\\\'. It is within this specific context that this entry becomes quite relevant and fitting.

CAPTCHA: dickiest... huh.

Edit CAPTCHA: dominate. HAH!

DamselOfDistress, it\'s completely possible to play a trope straight and avert it in the same work, even in the same scene, even at the same moment. That\'s not a contradiction. Just because it\'s an AvertedTrope doesn\'t mean that in the entire work the trope must never appear. It just means there is an incident where the trope is averted.
