It's been a minute, hasn't it? Well, we're back...and maybe slightly different?
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! Disappointed in You
: One character fails at something. Instead of being angry, another character is morose. They don't yell at the first character or ask them "What Were You Thinking?" or anything dramatic like that. Instead, they calmly, sadly and often regretfully tell the other person that they've let them down. Someway, somehow, they've set the second character's hopes for them high and then failed to deliver. May be worded as "I'm disappointed in you," or "You disappoint me," or at a stretch "I expected better/more of you." However it's worded, the issue isn't one of outrage or indignation — merely that the speaker has been let down by the other and they feel like a fool for believing there would be any other outcome.( Collapse )Hero Academy
: Many fictional worlds show a hero working his way to fight and stop some great evil. Sometimes they're princes or knights fighting to save a damsel in distress, maybe they're mercenaries fighting evil for a paycheck or a regular person relying strictly on his wits and luck. Either way, they were defined as heroes on their respective stories.
But what if being a hero alone is to be considered a job?( Collapse )
