Character Tropes and Other Fun Stuff

Post by Echo on Thu Jul 07, 2011 2:24 am

Yeah! Just something to do for fun! But it's not quite a game.

Have you ever been listing to a song and thinking, "My God(s)! This song is perfect for Character X!" Have you stumbled across a trope that just seems to match Character Y perfectly? Have you found a picture that's just the spitting image of Character Z?

Well, dude, don't keep these things to yourself! Share them!

Basically, whenever you find something [on the internet] that you think is a good match for yours or someone else's character on here, post it! We can all share and enjoy it Very Happy

By the way, if you're unfamiliar with tropes, check out this website. But be warned...now there's no turning back! *laughs maniacally and vanishes*

Andrew http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JwL1XLiDpc

This song just kinda discribes his mood.

"I saw a ghost on the stairs,
And sheets on the tables and chairs,
The silverware swam with the sharks in the sink,
Even so, I don't know, what to think.
I've been longing for,
Daisies to push through the floor,
And I wish that plant life would grow all around me,
So I won't feel dead anymore.
So I won't feel dead anymore."
~ Plant Life by Owl City

Alright, maybe I'm just going crazy over this song/band because...well, I literally just discovered them a few minutes ago and loved it. But you know, as I was listening I couldn't help but think...hey. Cricket's mindset. It's got just the right amount of quirky harmonies, random tidbits of strange instruments, and optimistic lyrics...though the tune is shadowed at times by dark swings. In a nutshell? Quirky. Lurve it.

Btw. The video has a wierd tidbit at the end...not part of the Cricket-ness xD Just a warning.

*scampers off to look for songs and such that resemble other charries*

Sarah's song to Peter http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNrWiOFOO28&feature=related

Reason I chose this song...
Sarah: "I have very strong feelings for him. I mean...I can't bring myself to say the 'L' word, but...yeah. I don't think he feels the same way, though...".

Peter's song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXmLRHnoSAs

Reason I chose this song...
KISS HER PETER!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and just so you know, I won't be putting anything up if the creator of the character does not agree that it is a match. They gotta say something.

Alright, this isn't the spitting image of one character in particular, but it's the spitting image of the book I'm planning to write! ([insert title here], Cricket and Co.'s story) This trope is titled Dwindling Party.

Great! I'll add them to the Catalogue Smile

Here's one that applies to NEARLY EVERY CHARACTER HERE: Dark And Troubled Past. This one's so omnipresent that I'll just add it as new characters get added. I'll add it with them.

For Senet and Cricket: Angst? What Angst?

Jacky, would you say that The Woobie applies to Cricket?

For Peter: Determinator, Iron Woobie

I cheat. This is off of Devianart. It just so happened to match the image in my head which I have tried and failed many a time to put on paper xD The text was added later, but I forgot to save an unedited copy. Ah well. Wink

Mr.Face- debatably aComplete monster

Really YMMV though...

Auda is most definitely a Crapsack World

Updated the Catalogue! Also, guys, for the pictures, I would appreciate it if you gave me the direct link to the picture rather than the link to the page the picture is on. That way, I don't have to hunt anything down!

Alright people with crapsack/extreme/odd settings: Check this out. Does this look familiar to you?

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IsItAlwaysLikeThis

I think this trop describes a few settings on here...what comes to mind is Auda, Pete's story (since from what I know it has no one set setting) and possibly Luna Nuova. Anyone else? Hm?

T.Mor:
You al already know he works as a Punch Clock Villian
As a result of this...He ends up with Bad Dreams Although...He's not really all that stoic...Er...

Will send more as I find them...

And Jacky...That is at one point August's reaction to Auda...The riots particularly...xD

For relationships!

Cricket and Marley will always be best friends.
They will also always have their little scenes such as this, being the competetive peeps they are.

Invis asked me to find a song, we both agreed that Clocks by Coldplay was the best choice.

Ezra

One good trait to discribe his guilt would be My God, What Have I Done?, because of this he sometimes locks himself away because he feels like this

Dorian is pretty much a Psycho For Hire, though admittedly, a lot of those symptoms don't match up at all. Like the sporting chance thing.
