A bastion of useless knowledge which, once you've been ensnared, is impossible to escape from--and you'll love it! Cataloguing effectively every story-telling trope imaginable this site will keep you amused and filled with trivia for countless hours, days even, ever time you so much as visit it.
Such an interesting website. Went through and looked at a few of the Characterisation articles and I love all the examples of different works that were provided. I hope to be able to dig deeper into this site in my spare time.
While fun and funny, TV Tropes is a stealthy source of research info. Whether you're a writer trying to break down a popular genre or a fan trying to pin point why you love a certain movie so much, TVT has all the answers with a fun, friendly, and snarky tone about it.
Very entertaining. Gives you names for things you noticed and lets you know you aren't alone in your observations. Cons: You may end up accidentally using the terms you learn there and that may offend some people (though they aren't profane).
