TVTropes is very much like any addiction : once you're in , you're so for quite a very long time !

And ever...

I LOVE this and wanted to use it with my students. Unfortunately, some of the language caused my admin to be concerned. Wish there was a PG version.

I love you so much for Cloud Cuckoolander. There always needs to be a Ccl in every story.

Settings, Laws and Plots column need to be JUST Laws and Plots. Settings could easily make an entire column if not multiple columns.
