• 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.

In the spirit of wiki open sharing, we reveal the one reliable source for true fanon.

Let's face it — Fanon is fun. Sure we don't promote it, but it has to start somewhere.

This is the garden where we plant our Epileptic Trees. What's your silly or not-so-silly pet theory on a story you enjoyed?

A proper wild mass guess has a few key assumptions:

As long as a theory at least sounds like a theory, always assume that it's something meaningful for its writer, no matter how improbable, contradictory or even Jossed it is, so let your hair down and play along with it. But don't let whole pages devolve into Grand Unifying Guesses, overused Stock Epileptic Trees, memes, conversational forums and similar misplaced humour. For ideas, try to solve the plot holes that don't make any sense.

To connect your silly ideas with other works, please see Grand Unifying Guesses. If no Wild Mass Guessing page currently exists for the work you wish to guess about, feel free to add one. Just type WMG / Name Of Show in your html bar, edit the page, and voila! It should appear as an icon on the main page.

Warning: Prolonged exposure to these pages will result in them making sense. Take a break after every half hour of exposure.

Obviously spoilers ahoy. You sort of need to know plotpoints to make a Wild Mass Guess, so you may want to wait until you've seen or read a work before reading the WMG page for it.
