(See plots don't have to be original.)

Rookie needs to be a little more careful linking to Tv Tropes all willynilly.

That's how lives are ruined.

Whelk, did you not miss the warning?
Spoilers ahoy for many shows including Fringe, The X-Files, Twin Peaks, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Battlestar Galactica, as well as The Epic of Gilgamesh!
Or are you referring to the timesink that is 'Tropes?

Spoilers are one thing.

Linking to TV Tropes should require a parental consent form.

Good article. One of my daughters is an aspiring writer, and I'll point her to this.

So if I read that article correctly, all the time I spend on MetaFilter is adding tools to my belt!

Whatever happened to grumblebee? I always felt bad when he'd disagree with me because I wanted to respond to him but his comments were so long I'd reach my next birthday and then the next and then the next and then die and be reincarnated before I had the chance to finish reading one. He still around?

LOL. uhm, hai?

(I suppose I owe you a drink. next time I'm in NYC. did they ever re-open Revival?)
posted by Afroblanco at 12:27 AM on January 10, 2013


I didn't even know they closed Revival.

I'm still around. I was made an admin on quora.com (my profile), and that takes up a large portion of my online time (and gives me a huge appreciation of Matt, Jess, Cortex, etc). I still read mefi several times a day and post every once in a while.

I've somehow managed to avoid Tropes all this time, but this has completely sucked me in. Fuck!

Huh. I totally remember that grumblebee comment because I thought it was brilliant but somehow, at the time, I didn't fave it.

Going to remedy that.

Judging by some of the things the Something Awful thread about that site dug up (especially before they spun off Fetish Fuel and deleted most of the rape tropes) that's pretty true.
