PostSubject: Felarya Tropes, the Description and Assigning Of   Wed Oct 28, 2009 10:16 pm

Let's redux this stuff.

We'll try to not delve into another edit war spawned from haet about the topic ITT. I'll tell you how we can do that.

Firstly let's backtrack and go at this topic in a sensible manner. For now, let's all agree to leave the TVtropes article on Felarya completely blank for the time being. Having anything up there is only going to be a distraction to discussion.

Proposed entries can be posted here, and we can discuss them. This thread will serve to hammer out assigning and descriptions of tropes found in Felarya.

If the TVtropes article containing a finished product of this thread, is deemed to be offensive, damaging or whatever, judgment can be cast upon it and it shall be smitten.

So let's talk about the things that point out parallels with other things from other things, otherwise known as 'tropes' for the sake that it probably can't harm you, like that spider near your toes.

This is what was needed from the start. Unfortunately, I can not contribute at the moment. The Flash wiki is eating my time like crisis eating nekos.

Okay, I guess let's start with Cute Monster Girls, as it applies to just about every major character. Any arguments against it?

Nope. I think that it's a given that that trope applies. Razz

Nah, it's fine. I think a few of us, myself included, got a little carried away with it. Leave that behind. Water under the bridge and all that rot.

Now, enough of that and lets get cracking.

Well, without specifying any particular characters, the tropes that come to mind for Felarya itself would probably include:

- Animesque: Goes without saying

- I'm a Humanitarian

- The Hunger: Humans turned into predators have this.

- Cute MonsterGirls:

- Cat girls:

- Attack of the fifty foot whatever: Ditto.

- Your mileage may vary: Let's face it.

- Reptiles are abhorrent: an aversion seems noteworthy.

- Big Creepy Crawlies: Tonorions, dridders, boom bees....

- Author Appeal/Fetish Fuel: Do I need to say anything?

- Always a bigger fish: Often ignored, but one of the defining traits of Felarya.

- Humans are bastards: Goes against everything Felarya is meant to be, but has a habit of being invoked every single goddamn chance it gets.

- Crossover: Half the characters are from other worlds/unpublished franchises.

- Our monsters are different.

- Crystal Dragon Jesus: The Felaryan goddesses.

- Kick the Dog/Pet the Dog: Prettymuch every other action between every character is either or...

- Bare your midriff: I defy you to name ONE clothed female characterwhoisn'tLea who doesn't display this!



Regarding characters, I think to avoid confusion/overload, we should cite only characters in the wiki.


That said....


- Friendly Neighborhood Giantess: Jade/Fiona

- Raised by humans(wolves): Fiona, Scala, Rin....

- Was once a man: several characters I can't be bothered to name.

- Action girl: Every other character

- BFS: Verdant Fury

- Crazy Awesome: Terror and Ryla, mainly.

- The goggles do nothing: Averted: Anna's first appearance had her wearing them.

- Back from the dead/whatever the trope is involving an author cave in: Anna

I haven't had the time to check yet what these famous tropes are exactly but it looks intriguing ^^

I saw the previous thread only after it was locked. I'm warning a certain set of people though, I'm no longer in the good mood I was when I came back from China. My patience is wearing seriously thin on a certain number of points.
So I advise some people to keep a low profile and above all to keep the tone of the discussion CIVIL.

It was no one person's fault. You made a mistake of making the page before everyone could contribute. Not a big deal. MOST TVtropes pages dont' get creator consent. But given how interactive the community is with the world, most of us wanted some say on what went in. And some of us lost our heads more than others.

Really, it was a dysfunction caused by mistakes on all sides, an no one should feel particularly ashamed about it.

You really ought to check them out. They'll keep you on the computer all day, but they're really informative and I find they give you a really thorough grasp of how a good(or bad) story plays out.

I've read alot of the tropes, and I think Gregole nailed a good portion of the ones that apply to Felarya. I'll be on Tv Tropes to see if there's any other tropes to consider.

Tv Tropes... I have yet to recover all the hours lost in that site, though I wouldn't say I've lost or wasted my time there. xD

But a Tv Tropes Felarya article? Hmm... I have some serious doubts about it. I don't know how people would react about such thing being there, and we should be careful with the tropes included...

Throwing my own to cents in here.

I've got to agree with Feadraug TV Tropes is all well and good, but. . .maybe putting a Felarya page up there is a bad idea, it might get unwanted attention, from trolls and what not.

Then again it might not.

Some of us may not find it necessary, but Felarya's growing in recognition. I think it's best if we make the article now, and all agree on what it should say, lest someone else make it and be less careful about it.

Good list.

To which I would suggest adding: Death World ; Everything Trying To Kill You.

Good thread so far. I'll be the childish one that gets these out of the way:
- Most Common Superpower
- Gag Boobs

And for slightly more serious ones:
- Determinator - Quite a high number of characaters, mostly when there friends are in trouble or when it comes to finding food
- Immune to Bullets/Five Round Rapid - Unfortunatly quite a few stories have these as well, although it seems to be averted with increasing frequency in recent ones

I'll post some more later

I see your point... I'm not 100% against it, I just have my doubts. Dunno... it is TV Tropes, it's awesome and all, but what if then it reaches... let's say... Encyclopedia Dramatica? Oh well, I hope that day never arrives... Razz

I won't stop you guys. I'd rather sit back and see how this keeps developing. And if I change my mind, help in this.

Yeah, but you only have an ED because of that argument with Generationslayer.


Really, who gives a shit if Felarya gets ED'd? Make us the butt-monkey of a respectable community with a genuine sense of humor, THEN maybe I'll be worried.

TRUE though it may result in more spamming and harrassent which could get annoying. Also I don't really see that last part happening.
