    TVtropes will ruin your life...

    Post by Crackle on Wed Jan 30, 2013 12:51 pm

    Due to a recent obsession, I've decided to start up a thread along the same lines as the Did You Know thread and the Theme Song thread, but with one major change: Tropes! This is another great way to tell other people about your character, help you nail down your characters personality, figure out what to do with them in the future/make them grow beyond the usual, easily recognizable, frequently recycled character that they are now. For those of you unfamiliar with TVtropes, I encourage you to spend some time on the site and get to know it a bit, but BE CAREFUL! If you are already familiar with the site and have a few tropes that describe your character on hand, link them here! In the interest of not having a long list of overlapping or closely related tropes, keep it to the top 5 tropes that you think apply to, describe, or are somehow relevant to your character. I'll start!

    Crackles top 5 tropes:

    Deus is a great many things. At least, that's how I feel.

    One of the main things I was going for with her:

    Literally everyone's reaction to her:

    Deus definitely has this:

    Sanc is, like most characters, filled with the darn things, though I do try and tear apart tropes I intentionally use to give my characters a set of flaws and strengths. Needless to say, I don't always get it right

    Still, should be interesting to see who among us has wasted their lives on the site

    Right, onwards to the tropes;

    Sanctity is very much the defector from decadence, thanks to his past. This gives him some heavy atoner qualities.

    And, well, that's about it, though he does show some adorkable qualities when around beautiful mares. Or stallions.

    Damnit, bad Sanc' that's nine out of your five tropes. TEN!. Damnit, you should probably wrap up now, this is more typing than your actual posts.

    Well, Samedi knows how to dress:

    He is a bit manipulative and can trick people, so I guess this fits as well:

    I may put up more later.

    Lets see...

    It´s fairly obvious that Xeshir doesn´t have a lot of standarts and is skilled in bed (or so it seems)

    Begin raised in a tribe exclusively focused on war makes her a good martial artist even if she doesn´t look like one and a good shooter.

    With foals, especially her little sister, she could be considered a reliable sister.

    I´m missing so many other categories, but I´ll keep it hidden until more of her story is revealed.

    I really don't know how to classify Wisteria. Cool and Forward? Apathetic and Party-loving? She just really seems to go with the flow, unless the mood for action seizes her, and then she tries to do something without being the center of attention.

    ...Nope, can't really find anything. Too much work.

    My alts are [amnesiac with split-personality] and [believes that life is wasted on the living]

    Okay Mix is a pony who will try anything to talk someone out of something evil, but to an extent. Mix is also very protective of Cass. Mix has a tendancy to be kinky, but not going into detail, basically giving the witnesses decide what's happening Mix will use this action many times.

    More may be added...

    Can't find a lot of them but I found one.

    If there are foals around being threatened then Aura might become a Mama Bear (Cause Aura has kids). She also hates her first name since her entire family By their last names. When she is dealt with an insult from males she usually Ignores them.

    Well let's start with the easiest one seriously Scrap stop breathing my air., then we get to the most stereotypical qualities the pseudo raider outlaw, the salty veteran (despite the trope breaking age i think it still fits), the obvious moral niche, and the reason why I will die at the age of 57.
