• 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.


This a Just For Fun page

People having varied tastes means they also have personal tiers of quality. This is the top tier—works you think are just that good. They are So Cool It's Awesome.

The works you just want to tell all your friends about, unless they already like it too. If you had a Top Ten List of your favorite works in a medium/genre/etc., these would be it. When the corollary of Sturgeon's Law states the remaining ten percent are worth dying for, these are those works.

Often these works are just obscure things you really like, and sometimes they can become blockbusters, often influencing other works.

But be careful about Fan Myopia. Not everyone will feel the same way, and there might even be Hype Backlash for some people. In those cases, it's often best just to sing the praises of your favorite works and then let others make their own judgements (or not bother if they are prone to being Fan Haters).

Related, somewhat, to So Bad It's Good and polar opposite of So Bad It's Horrible. May lead to Awesomeness Withdrawal.

No examples, please; Put examples in Gushing About Shows You Like (for works, although that can have merely liked works gushed about).
