Games and Tropes

I had a relatively light day at the game convention. I didn't get into either a morning or an evening game so I got to sleep in a little and then get home by 8:30. Only two games in the afternoon - Terraforming Mars and Aeon's End. I have an early day tomorrow, though. I got into the Buffy RPG and it starts at 8am. I'm going to have to leave by 6:30 if I want to get there on time. Stupid rush hour traffic.

I used my time at home to get caught up on LJ, only to get lost in trope lists, courtesy of thenewbuzwuzz. I ended up creating a preliminary list with ellimists.tumblr.com, then plugged all the tropes that were tied for number 1 into Pairwisest. This is what popped out:

1. Accidentally Fell In Love With The Mission Target
2. Enemies to Friends to Lovers
3. Groundhog Day/Karmic Time Loop
4. SnowedIn Cabin/Isolated Together For Extended Period of Time
5. Adopting/Raising a Baby
6. Hot Single Parent(s)
7. Found Families
8. Friends to Lovers
9. Everyone is Evil/Mirrorverse AU
10. Reincarnation/25 Lives AU

Most of these are no surprise at all. I've written a lot of these, and they easily describe some of my favorite fics across fandoms. If I'm surprised by anything, it's that numbers 3 and 5 are as high as they are, and that number 6 isn't in the top three.
