Thursday Tropes: Week 24

It's been a minute, hasn't it? Well, we're back...and maybe slightly different?

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!

All Guys Want Sorority Women: A Sister Trope to All Guys Want Cheerleaders. But what could be better than a teenage hottie jumping around in a skimpy outfit? How about a twenty-something hottie walking around in a skimpy outfit? Not only is she more likely to be more developed (and of legal age), she's also more likely to be... how do you say... experienced.

A Sorority Woman has similarities to a Cheerleader, in that she is part of a close knit, almost exclusively-female group, is almost by definition drop-dead gorgeous, and generally presumed to be loose in morals. The main advantage in films, however, is that, as almost every Sorority Woman is above the age of consent, it's way easier to show them in sexy lingerie, drinking alcohol, taking a shower, (maybe even without a Modesty Towel!) or actually having sex.

And, to top it all off, they often used to be cheerleaders in their former days — some of them are still cheerleaders! — which makes the stereotype even more perfect.

Muggles: In a story with Differently Powered Individuals, or a Witch Species, you'll usually have a group of individuals who don't have those powers—muggles. Ordinary people. Those who are not special, like the favored of the plot. Mundane folk who are only aware of their own small section of reality. The source from which most characters spring.

They're the "normal" for those who crave it and those who would hate it if it happened. Ironically, Muggles often treat extraordinary people like crap, because Muggles are All of the Other Reindeer—although sometimes this happens the other way around, more cynical super-people looking down on them as Innocent Bystanders—a pathetically bland, underdeveloped species.

The most common Secret Identity pretends to be this.
