Another useful skill is to be able to deconstruct media content into component parts. What I like so much about this site is that it is like having an instant English professor to go through all of your favorite books, movies, and TV shows.

Tropes are basically story telling devices that take on a wide variety of forms.

We often notice them while watching a horror movie and the camera starts following the girl in the dark room and the string ensemble music starts to ratchet up the tension.

Much better than the old Cliffs Notes and Sparknotes you may have hypothetically used to survive the dreaded morning high school English class quiz! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since this is a gun oriented blog, here is a giant list of gunplay tropes!
