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.

Day Of The Dead by William-Adolphe Bouguereau

Cquote1.svg

 Laugh, and the world laughs with you;

Weep, and you weep alone.

For this sad old earth must borrow its mirth,

But has grief enough of its own.

Cquote2.svg


Tropes used to evoke or convey sadness and melancholy. Happiness Tropes are their natural opposite.


Good God, there's a lot more of these than there are Happiness Tropes, aren't there?

Just because sadness comes in more varieties than happiness doesn't mean that it's more prevalent.
