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?)
