My Tropes I

Came up a list of Tropes to describe what kind of person I am. Doesn’t feel quite complete yet but it should do for now. For those of you not familiar with TvTropes, feel free to click on the links to find out what these phrases mean. Try not to get addicted to the site though, TvTropes will ruin your life after all.

  • A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Read - Mine especially. Very messy in there. For one thing my mind likes switching between and mixing and matching English, Malay, Japanese and German. Then there’s the buzzing of lesser important thought trains among the few main few.
  • Absent Minded Professor - Without being an actual professor, this does apply to me.
  • Are You Sure You Want To Do That - My curiosity elicits this out of my friends from time to time. Especially frequent during Chemistry practicals.
  • Bag Of Holding - I have a knack for stuffing loads of things into places.
  • Batman Gambit - I pull these out to get someone else do something for me.
  • Bowties Are Cool - My reaction whenever my cousins tell me to shave off my goatee. I’m trying grow a beard here.
  • Brilliant But Lazy - I blame it on my need for efficiency. If the result is not worth the effort then I'm not doing it.
  • Buffy Speak - I have trouble explaining things to people.
  • Cloudcuckoolander - Everyone who knows me will unanimously agree on this. I'm just a few steps behind the 11th Doctor in terms of this.
  • Disorganized Outline Speech - Bad at explaining things.
  • Does Not Understand Sarcasm - Half the time. The rest of the time I do it on purpose to bug people.
  • Dual Wielding - I can do this with Shiinai (bamboo blades) now. Pens too.
  • Epileptic Trees - I’m guessing this applies given the odd rumors I’ve heard about myself over the years.
  • Everybody Hates Mathematics - Everyone thinks I’m an inversion of this just because I’m good at it. I don’t especially like it any more than I do with other fields of study.
  • Evil Laugh
  • Genre Savvy - Combine reading loads of manga and wasting time on TvTropes instead of Wikipedia and you get this.
  • Go Mad From The Revelation - Subverted. I tinker too much with metaphysics and philosophy in my head and have realized some horribly depressing implications about the nature of humans, their belief systems and reality. I’ve actually learnt to appreciate things more because of this.
  • Gratuitous Japanese - I have avoided this as much as possible. Sadly, it doesn’t stop other people from doing it.
  • Grey And Gray Morality - Everything is relative. Nothing is truly absolute.
  • Hates Being Touched - Hate is a little exaggerated but yeah.
  • Honor Before Reason - My sense of responsibility outdoes my own personal gain every single damn time. Strangely enough, I’ve pretty much thrown out all traces of shame and guilt out of my emotional system so it’s a matter of pride more than anything else.
  • I Thought Everyone Could Do That - So much so that I don’t trust my preconception of what’s normal anymore.
  • Ignored Epiphany - Those revelations of despair that made would make people go mad? Ignoring them doesn’t make them any less true but dwelling on them isn’t exactly fun.
  • Lack Of Empathy - I have no idea how to console people other than to point out what they can do about their situation.
  • Magnum Opus Dissonance - Apparently my best poem was one about taking over the world with robot penguins and flying turtles that I wrote on the fly for a class. I was flabbergasted when it won 1st place in the interclass poetry competition that year.
  • Memetic Badass - My reputation back during my last few years of school.
  • More Than Meets The Eye - Surprise seems to be my forte. One way or another, I surprise everyone somehow.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant - Especially true to my cousins.
  • No Sympathy - Almost. Just very, very, very little.
  • Not So Stoic - I don’t like to smile for two reasons: It wastes energy and it looks quite sinister. I’m actually quite a unique individual.
  • Psycho Supporter - I’m more likely to root for the guys who make things “interesting”.
  • Psychotic Smirk - Whenever I get amused, it starts looking like this.
  • Refuge In Audacity - I’ve pulled a number of these to get out trouble. 100% success rate so far.
  • Reluctant Warrior - I don’t like fighting because it’s pointless and detrimental to all parties involved. However, I am stronger than I look and I wouldn’t mind a fight to see how I fare if I couldn’t avoid it.
  • Ridiculous Procrastinator - I should really nip this habit in the bud. Sure, I pull it off brilliantly but it’s not a good habit to have.
  • Right Behind Me - I pull these on a lot of people.
  • Screw Politeness Im A Senior - I didn’t even bother trying to remember their real names. They still respect me for some reason though.
  • Secret Identity - Several. I enjoy using them to steer things towards a certain direction.
  • Serious Business - Food is the only real thing that has a chance of getting to me. I’ve actually felt depressed over not getting a slice of pizza that a teacher treated my class to in time.
  • She Is Not My Girlfriend - I’m known for not showing any interest in relationships so for some reason I’ve had clear things up whenever a few of my juniors got mistaken as such. All of them happened in my last year of school for some reason.
  • Sweet Tooth - An outright curse if you ask me.
  • Talking To Himself - Occasionally.
  • Talking Your Way Out - My ability to reason and negotiate with people is very useful.
  • The Nicknamer - Main reason is because I can never remember people’s actual names.
  • The Reason You Suck Speech - Counterattacked with a particularly brutal one when someone tried to pull of these on me. Not only was it full of holes and disgustingly desperate and delusional, it showed me just how much time I wasted trying to be an actual friend to that person.
  • There Are Two Kinds Of People In The World - A) Idiots – Those who do stupid things knowing what will come of it and do it anyway. B) Morons – Those who do stupid things thinking that they know what will come of it. I consider myself to be the former.
  • Think Nothing Of It - Apparently my values are so different from others that I can’t tell the difference between a noble act and a trivial one. My sense of morality might be a little warped by the way.
  • Took A Level In Badass - Taking it right now. Progressing quite well.
  • Ubermensch - Going through the motions of being a Nihilist without even knowing that term, I came out of it with an unusually positive view of reality.
  • Weirdness Coupon - Had and abused this during my school years.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years - Part of my reputation, even now. It’s weird having people I barely know come up to me for advice. I’ve had an unusually high number of advice seekers concerning their love lives which is just weird.
