Click Here for Trope-y Goodness

This is a pretty cool site, it has a massive compilation of tropes (ex. The Black Guy Always Dies First, Last Stands, Guns Never Needing Reloading, Main Characters can't die, etc) and it's really fun, for me, at least, to peruse.

Bewarned that this website is a CLUSTERFUCK of spoilers, and they cover some things up but not all. If you're halfway through a novel or show, don't look at its page, because it will be spoiled.

They have a handy-dandy iPod app, too.

Now that I'm done being a walking advertisement, thoughts on this? I like it, it's interesting to see how often things show up, or how they're subverted.

You will trap your soul in there forever. That is all.

Does it have short stories and things such as "The Most Dangerous Game"?

It has nearly everything you can think of, Patches. If you look up an individual trope they have the works divided up by sections such as "Western Animation", "Live Action Film", "Literature", etc.

I've browsed it. But never extended periods.

Mostly when Tex links me to an article.
