I'm a college student, a writer, an artist, and an astrologer. A vegetarian. I am rarely on this site but I will keep it up though. However if you want to read anything by me click one of the following links.
I love death tropes and half of my favourites -- listed and unlisted -- involve human mortality. What better way to begin a story than with death? It forces the writer to be creative in where the story goes from there. I've never written a story -- fanfic or original fiction -- where death hadn't been a major theme in it.' Ten Little Murder Victims is a favourite of mine because you get to solve the murder mystery along with the the characters. The reasons why I like 'Anyone Can Die' and 'Life/Death Juxtaposition' is because death is unavoidable but it isn't the end; the world doesn't stop when someone dies, you need to grieve and afterward you begin again. These last two overlap with romantic tropes but they're still very much death tropes. Life can't stop love and neither can death, 'Together in Death' and 'Reincarnation Romances' show that love triumphs over all. Also Reincarnation Romances have similarities to love at first sight without the cliches. Like that trope the lovers have an instant connection but instead of dating or marrying immediately the lovers need to get to know each other again before they know they're in love.
Ambiguity Tropes (No Antagonist, Ambiguous Ending, and Maybe Ever After). Ambiguous endings are my favourite endings because it shows that life often doesn't wrap itself in a neat little bow. Does the princess send her lover to the other woman or the tiger in 'Lady and the Tiger?' We don't know, and stories like these let the outcome be up to reader interpretation. I love stories have concrete endings but I love stories where you're not entirely sure if the couple got together or not. They may hold hands or say, "What now?" but for all we know they could've ended their relationship too.
“What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic." -- Carl Sagan
"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame." -- Song of Songs
