Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Unlike the Medal of Honor, the Param Vir Chakra is only given for "rarest of the rare gallantry which is beyond the call of duty and which in normal life is considered impossible to do."

That's right, you actually have to break the laws of reality just to be eligible. It has only been awarded 21 times, and two thirds of the people who earned it died in the process.

There are some things which you cannot do. There are some limits on even a Noble's actions.
Never learn these limits. Never accept them. You are a Lord or Lady of this earth.

"I too believed time travel to be nothing more than a fallacy. Something that humans could only dream of... make movies of. Write stories about.
But as I delved more into my research in physics, I began to see things that my other colleagues, and theorists of the past, could never seem to see.
I started piercing things together, one by one, until I had finally found the solution.
Once I had my solution, the only remaining thing necessary was to execute it.
This took much of my wealth and investment... to develop something that could trump reality. Something only thought to exist within the imagination.
And it was worth every penny."
