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.

We all know it can be fun to read terrible fanfics... but what about having them read... to you?! ...in a dramatic, BOOMING voice, just so that all of the Narm can be fully appreciated? This... is where the Dramatic Reading comes in. You can expect almost every bad fanfic that becomes infamous to have at least one Dramatic Reading. And often, other media such as published books can get Dramatic Readings if they're sufficiently infamous.

Also see Large Ham and What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome?.

Don't confuse this trope with "Podfics", which are more like audiobooks for ordinary and even quality fanfics (albeit many podficcers can do Dramatic Readings on the side)

Examples of Dramatic Reading include:


Examples from fiction

  • In A Clockwork Orange, Alex and his goons break into a writer's house. Alex mocks the writer by reading his work-in-progress in a "sort of very high type preaching voice".
