Thursday Tropes: Week 6

In my defense, I spent 8 hours in the ER with the lady I care for, then when I got home, I got about 6 or 7 hours of sleep, before doing my online class. Then I had to return phone calls and play phone tag...and yeah. Just now sitting down to catch up on LJ!

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 is 1 trope!

Inheritance Murder: Sometimes, the prospect of legally inheriting something can prompt the heir to speed up the process by way of murder.

Often, the heirs are just impatient for wealth or power - they want it now, not eventually, and see no reason to wait. Other times, they're worried that an inheritance which they're currently in line for will be changed to leave them nothing - if they don't inherit quickly, it might be too late.

Typically, inheriting will require a will, so tropes relating to that are often in play. A variant is for the murderer to be not the beneficiary of inheritance but the person who'd administer it, which may let them get their hands on it just as well. Another variant, especially in more modern works, is for the murderer to be after not an inheritance but an insurance payout, a different way to benefit from offing your nearest and dearest.
