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.

Fox, Warrior, Elf, Prince.

Sylphe's gifts are now sought out by thieves, kings, and wholesome adventure-type folk... like us!

Kit was a fox until a senile witch turned her not-quite human. Nigel's been cursed to follow someone who is "a girl but not a girl, and neither human, dwarf, nor elf." Thankfully there were no "transvestite hermaphrodite gnomes" around, so instead he's left following a Cute Fox Girl. Larina left a remote elven sanctuary only to have a Possession Stone lodged in her forehead. Now random ghosts can take over her body. It's "kind of a pain, you know?"

This intrepid trio sets out to find ancient relics left over from when a legendary being called Sylphe ended the last great war. Along the way they pick up a loser prince who plays the lute, a clumsy thaumaturge-in-training who looks like a demon, and manage to leave a trail of failure in their wake.

Fey Winds updates every Tuesday and is lushly illustrated and wittily written. Contains that rare, delicate blend of rich backstory, realistic character development, quick action, dry humor (much of it lampshading), tasteful fanservice, and subtle self-awareness to keep the characters intriguing, the fantasy setting fresh, and the story moving at a proper pace, not to mention totally unbiased TV Tropes writeups. Referential jokes show up now and again.

 Lord of the Dying Light: No need to get up. Oh wait, that's right, you can't. ...Did you say something?

Sid: He was going to ask you what your grand scheme was! So we can... bask in the glow of your evil genius!

Lord of the Dying Light: No more explaining.

    • Keep in mind it was intentional.
  • Meaningful Names
    • Kit is short for Kitsune.
      • Not to mention meaning "young fox" (or other small fur-bearing animal).
    • Nigel is derived from Nathaniel, which means "gift from God". He is a war-golem, animated by captured elementals and a stolen soul. So he is literally powered by spiritual energy.
    • The Sylphe, a powerful spirit, refers to "Sylph," a term for elementals or faeries of the air.
    • The Big Bad is named after the legendary hero of Norse mythology, Sigurd.
  • The Mole: Zeph
  • My Friends and Zoidberg: "I need your help. Sid's too, I suppose... to a slightly lesser degree."
  • Names to Run Away From Really Fast: Lord of Darkne the Dying Light.
  • Odd-Shaped Panel
  • Overly Long Name: Prince Sidney Theodorus Cassian Merriweather Findain VIII. Mercifully, he only ever goes by Sid in the actual comic. His brother's name is slightly shorter — Dorian Norwood Anson Findain VI.
  • Quirky Miniboss Squad: The Minionz!
  • Raised by Wolves: Kit, who was raised by foxes.
    • Rather, Kit, who was a fox.
  • Reverse Grip: Kit holds her left-hand sword this way.
  • Riddle Me This: Played with. Early in their quest for the Sylphe's artifacts, the heroes decide to consult a sage who spoke in riddles. Note the past tense.
  • Sarashi: Kit's preferred form of underwear.
  • Shirtless Scene: After Kit rips off the dress that was hampering her in battle, Nigel follows suit...

 Sid: Why did Nigel take off all HIS clothes, too?

Larina: I... don't know. Solidarity?
