Are you like me, and do you sometimes wonder what tropes would be mentioned on the Tropes.com page dedicated to your work, if it ever became public? Do you already have your suspicions of some of the tropes that you've used?

Feel free to move this to the writers forum if it should go there, I wasn't sure because this is a thread about writing rather than a thread sharing my writing.

Man I would love the shit out of having a page on TVTropes.

I think this is semi-relevant. I've been toying around with writing a zombie movie that plays with all the tropes. It hasn't gotten further than me having the idea. :p

The idea is golden though!

EoFF TV Tropes page?

I have a weird theory: of all the writers I know, the more acquainted one is with TVTropes, the better they are at writing and storytelling. Not even making this up.

EoFF TV Tropes page?

I'll name one or two that might pertain to me along with a TV Tropes-esque description...

Accentuate The Negative: Try telling him to put a black mage in his party.
Ascended Fanboy / One Of Us: What he'd be if he had a trope page based on him :P
Berserk Button: The mention of the band Enter Shikari sometimes causes him to fly into an irrational fit of rage, as does hearing their frontman's voice. Also see ItIsPronouncedTropay below.
Bi The Way: Rarely ever mentions it. Other female characters claiming to have a finely tuned gaydar immediately get confused though.
The Big Guy
Caustic Critic: In his (no longer online) "review" where he played Final Fantasy XIII and yelled at it a lot.
It Is Pronounced "Tro-pay" / Spell My Name With An "S": It's either ReloadPsi or ReloadXPsi. Not Reload Psi, and especially not Reload PSI. And if you dare pronounce the "X" or the "P"...
Shout Out: His name, while very loosely based on his real name in a BroadStrokes sense, alludes to Guilty Gear XX #Reload.
TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Vocabulary: He speaks fluent Tropese, even when it's inappropriate.
The Annotated Series: One of their annotators.
Too Kinky To Torture: Of the blunt force variety. Don't beat him up if you know what's good for your own dignity; you'd be better off shooting him instead.
