About Us

Describe Tropers group here.
OK, but it will contain lots and lots of spoilers, in-jokes and potholes!
Tropers group is here to spread the power of TV Tropes to the realm of llamas and deviants. We connect our two worlds with just one rule - the Rule of Cool. We search for tropes in our art and we draw Trope-tan the TV Tropes mascot, we illustrate our favorite tropes and draw our Troper Tales or things that bug us.
Aside from that, we are just a cozy place for all tropers here on dA. Make yourself at home and feel free to speak Tropey! This part of intertubes will understand you.
Our gallery doesn't have over nine thousand deviations, but you can't find enough evidence that yes, TV Trope Will Ruin Your Life - but it will do it in a very inspirative sort of way!

For the newcomers:
* Have a look at our gallery system and rules
* Add yourself to the nicknames conversion chart

Remember the Time...
"I ever tell you about the time I visited a prison and met this intern who kept leaving the cell doors open? Well, one day, he and his boss got trapped in one of the cells together, and the boss gave the poor guy a really long lecture about how badly he sucked at his job. Before he could tell him he was fired, though, an inmate in the same cell told them both to close the door because he was feeling a draft."
"...I don't get it."
"Weren't you paying attention?"
"To what?"
"The story."
"Then not really. I was waiting for the punchline."
"The story is the punchline; I said the intern kept leaving the cell doors open."
"But how did he and his boss get trapped in a cell?"
"Comedic stupidity, dude. Comedic stupidity."

What is a...?
A late night program on a dusty TV blips snippets of political campaign hooey. Its lone witness peels the remote from the couch and turns off the TV. He stands up, shakes his head, and stretches to see his wife.
"To think that you watch TV just to see the campaign ads," she says. "You know they're just glorified car commercials, right?"
"Pretty much," he replies with a dangle of his arm. "But it kind of gets me thinking."
"About what?"
He pauses. "What does it mean to be an adult?"
"You mean besides growing up, getting a job, settling down, raising a family, and realizing that contrary to popular belief, the world is neither all bright and kind nor all dark and cruel?"
"Yes: our maturity."
He slogs his way to the remote and blips the TV to life, wherein an episode of a controversial sitcom showcases a crowd of grown adults griping over a petty squabble.
"Now that I think of it," she muses, fingering her chin, "despite all the talk about 'being the grown up', adults ar

Movie Trailers
You know how sometimes when you see a trailer for a movie, you know immediately that its just spoiled the entire movie? Its a bit annoying, but I got to thinking and realized that they were actually doing me a favor. See, the movies with this sort of trailer are almost always shitty movies that no one in their right mind would ever want to see. So they decided that having you waste your time and money watching that shitty movie, they'd give you all the funny lines, all the cool special effects, and the entire plot in about 15 minutes, free of charge. You didn't want to see the movie, and now you don't need to. Wasn't that nice of them?
Hell, I wish they did that for other products as well. Could you imagine that?
"Hey buddy, you wanna buy this car?"
"No, actually. I don't want to buy that car."
"Of course you don't. This car is a piece of shit. Its a death trap. Only an idiot would want this car. So here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna give you all the good features in mob

...disappointed by the motive of another:…

"Clank: There must be another way to make a home for your people!
Chairman Drek: You think that's what this is about? Who do you think polluted our last world? I did! This is about one thing and one thing only: cash, and lots of it. See, I've been paid for every square inch of my new world. Once the new inhabitants move in, I'll begin polluting this world as well, and the whole thing starts all over again. Ah... brilliant.
Clank: Why, you... you evil little...
—Ratchet & Clank (2002)"

"Sly: So, before we finish this, let me get one thing straight: you came after the Coopers because of what happened to your father?
Le Paradox: No, you imbecile! I came after the Coopers to prove that Le Paradox is the greatest thief who has ever lived! Is there any doubt? Ask yourself this: if the Coopers were truly the greatest thieves in history, and I have stolen their most valued possessions, then what does that make me?
Sly: Ummm... an idiot? You had it made! You could have been the biggest thief of all time, but you had to target my ancestors and blow your own cover. You exposed your operation because of your ego! No Cooper would've done that. And for the record, can you really say you stole the canes? Seems like your "friends" did all the real work.
—Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time"

"In Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension, Alternate!Doof's tragic back story is that he lost a toy train as a child. Immediately lampshaded by Prime!Doof who lists off tragic back story after tragic back story."

Edward attacked Shou upon realizing that the talking chimera from two years ago was his wife and that the new one was his dog and child.
As you should know, Shou did that crud in an attempt to remain a state alchemist, what's more is that he not only expected what he did to his family to be acceptable, but also expected it to be rewarding.
He was scheduled to be stripped of his certification and court martialed, but that never happened due to the state alchemist killer called Scar getting to Tucker first.
•This might be a meta example as Shou's motive for his actions disappointed everyone in real life too(Including the author).

In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Venom Snake and his buddies find out that Huey Emmerich murdered Dr. Strangelove, the reason: she was against their son, Hal, being a test subject in his mad experiments.
Needless to say, many people who knew(including both the characters and everyone in real life) were outraged by this.

*pokes it with a stick*

Anyone alive in here? Trying to submit stuff and it seems like everyone fell asleep over here.
Drakonee Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Student General Artist
Uh, sorry about that. It seems that from the admins I am the only one more or less active... well, less. I try to sort out the submissions as often as I can, but not as often as it should be done.
NanoElite666 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No worries. :) I figured that was something of the case, so I just figured I'd poke with a stick and see what happened. =P
Drakonee Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Student General Artist
Well, I guess that worked! :XD: *sigh* I suppose I'll have to call for volunteers sooner or later. I really wanted to get this group more active... but right now I'm glad when I can get myself moving, art-wise. Talk about carmic retribution :D
SpaceJawa Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012
I know what you mean. Oddly enough, I've seen other people's stuff be accepted, but overall there doesn't seem to be much activity around these parts.
NanoElite666 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I saw some stuff show up a week or so ago, which was before I tried submitting stuff. Haven't seen anything since then I don't think.
Sabraia Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
Do I have to be an actual troper to join, or is this group open to anyone?
Drakonee Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2012  Student General Artist
No, this group is for anyone :)
(sorry for the late reply)
