Weekend Challenge: The Parent Trope

Happy Friday, everyone!

This weekend is Mother's Day, so I bring you a collection of 109 parental tropes I collected from TVTropes. And, in honor of all the Mr Moms, out there, I've included some Dad-specific tropes, though ANY of these can easily be interchangeable/interpreted per your preferred fandom.

You can request as many prompts as you like - just give me the number(s) or ask for random!

a roleplay snippet between John Constantine and two OMCs:

“Just because I’m Manfred’s son,” Rafe was muttering over the edge of his beer to the two men beside him, the three blocking the double-doored rear passage from the Banquet Hall into the rear gardens, “doesn’t mean a damn thing. For all his money and influence, I’m still also the son of Blanche Becker…and the bitch never let me forget it after his death.”

“She might have gotten the bank account but I think you came out ahead on that count.” John downed his third shot for the evening and was already itching for another. Something was grating on his psychic nerves and he couldn’t put his finger on it.

Or maybe it was a combination of watching Murdock and Tamara…and seeing the young Spock loitering in her orbit. The latter was actually a good thing, since Tamara gaining the Vulcan as Companion was one step closer to hopefully severing her ties with her troublesome Mate.

Discussion - 100 words - (Who Will Take the Kids?) - Original
“Billy, this is not something you worry about before the baby is born.”

“Why not? You know all the shit that could come flying down on me.”

“I could handle it.”

“But what about you? What if something happens to you and then where does she go? We’re not exactly swimming in friends here.”

“What about your mom and dad?”

“My parents are old and it’ll be like we’re placing her with strangers.”

“They are our best alternative.”


“So there shouldn’t be a problem. By the way, your mom is coming to help when the baby is born.”
