Subject: Trope Month game 1: Random prompts!

Welcome to Etoile's Trope Month! For the next month, I will be posting games that deal with tropes and the glorious, terrible, addictive website known as TV Tropes.

For the first game, I have decided to start with something simple. Please write a short piece making use of at least three of the following tropes (bonus points for using more four or even all five of them):

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheDitz
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WatchingTheSunset
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/WhoWouldBeStupidEnough
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LessDisturbingInContext
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NewYearsResolution

You can play with any of these tropes in any way you want ( http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PlayingWithATrope ), and you are allowed to use either new characters or pre-existing characters as you desire. In case you're wondering, these were chosen by hitting the "random" button and weeding out the ones that were either too genre-specific or would have put the "rating" of the game higher than what I want.

I would also like to remind you that the final game, to be posted July 8, will be "Trope Your Characters", in which you pick a handful of characters and look through the characterization tropes ( http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CharacterizationTropes among other indices) and find as many tropes that apply to your characters as you can and then post them for the rest of us to see. Feel free to start researching now! In addition, suggestions for additional trope games would be greatly appreciated, and feel free to ask me if you have any questions.

Happy troping!
