Warnings: none, angsting?

Peter had once loved classic literature, Shakespeare’s dramas especially. There was nothing like a good twist of words as the characters spoke circles around their less intelligent counterparts, and the way the right words whispered in the right, or wrong, ears could set about the most drastic of consequences.  After dealing with fae folk and his time in Eichen, listening to the crazed ramblings of his fellow prisoners, he couldn’t bear to read it anymore, much less listen to it; all the clever rhyming was now sweet sounding poison that drove him to nightmares.

Thursday Tropes: Week 5

no title

This time around...A. FULL. YEAR. OF. TROPES!

Some Thursdays will have 2 tropes, some will have 3, but I think the majority will have 1 that's really popular.

Descriptions will be pulled from TV Tropes and a link provided if you want more information.

The rules? They're simple. Write at least 250 words or create 2 icons/1 banner. Anything from suggestive to outright porn is allowed.

This week, there are 2 tropes!

Black-Tie Infiltration: Despite the name, the event doesn't need to be a black-tie affair. Any sort of exclusive or "by-invitation-only" event with a sufficiently large number of guests, a dress code, and a need for security would qualify. Often it's an opportunity for the heroes to dress up.

This is a Sub-Trope of The Infiltration and incorporates Hidden in Plain Sight on the part of the infiltrators.

Race for Your Love: Most commonly found in Romantic Comedies, Race For Your Love usually occurs five minutes or so before the credits roll.

A low-impact way to Earn Your Happy Ending. If the race is really lost, may result in Air Voyance. A subtrope of Grand Romantic Gesture. Compare the Big Heroic Run, where there is usually much more than just a relationship at stake.

(both of these are self-explanatory, right?)
