• 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.

A Fandom and Shipping phenomenon, most of them based on Live Journal. A Kink Meme is where a user (usually anonymously, though the rules on this differ between kink memes) posts both a pairing and a kink (or some kind of basic plot setup, or some other stipulation). Another user then anonymously fills this request with either art or Fanfic.

While kink memes, true to their name, usually contain plenty of smut, it is usually permissible to request Fluff or drama fic with no sex or shipping elements as well.

Tropes commonly found in kink memes include:
  1. The memes themselves can be considered examples, but this also tends to be invoked.
  2. Duh.
  3. Any meme that gets big enough will inevitably develop a few In Jokes that reach this status.
  4. When the fandom itself isn't RPF-oriented, this can come in the form of Character X paired with Real Person Y. The latter is often the former's creator/actor/voice actor.
