With Buzzcomix putting Earthsong into the Hall of Death, we need some new publicity. TV Tropes is a fantastic way to get it. But the new Earthsong page needs some Wiki Magic, people. let's get the comic out there and get it known.

And we can have a nice discussion about the horrendously life-stealing nature of TV Tropes wile we're at it =D

Oh, yes, yes. It's addictive. I didn't know you could add stuff to it, though...

It's a wiki, and there is no such thing a notability there. Ergo, you can add any series/comic/book/whatever you fancy, though you must run new tropes through the ykttw, which is the tool for running new tropes past the masses.

The bigger the ES article gets, the more likely we are to see new readers.

And remember, tropes are not bad.

Very interesting! I had no idea such a thing existed ( there `s a long list of things that I don`t know exist out there on the intarwebs).

And, strictly speaking, it`s actually just `Earthsong`. No `saga`business - that`s just the url.

Bah :shakefish:

I swear it used to be the saga of earthsong...

But, having the book sat next to me, it clearly isn't at the moment. Editing, unless someone else already has... Or is... Who's the UnknownTroper who's busy on the page, then?

Perhaps these can be added to the page?

Fish Out of Water
Cute Little Fangs -- K'Thonya, Felucca, Neuria, Tristram...the list may go on. Smile
Defrosting the Ice Queen -- Perhaps Gwen's future...and Nanashi's as well.
Cute Bruiser -- For our cute little to-be-introduced girl. Smile
Handsome Lech -- For another to-be-introduced Mandy. Smile
First Kiss -- For our K'Thonya.
Sacrificial Lamb -- Poor Richard...
Red Shirt -- While not exactly seen in Earthsong, blue skin generally = death/unlucky.
Anyone Can Die -- Unless something's changed, we really don't know what's going to happen--and the Lady's mentioned one of the Guard dying soon. At least, in predux.

In the old forum. I don't know if it still applies...but we're getting closer and closer to that point in Redux. Smile I'm guessing one of the Guard dies or gets sent home when they rescue Willow--and my guess is either Gwen or Tengu.

I will die if it's Tengu.

My guess would be Nanashi actually, I remember the two people who Nan chose to take with her to the Badlands (not naming them to avoid spoilers) but Nan's loss would hurt the Haven's Guard the most so it'd be more dramatic for her to die.

Also, she's the one I like least so I wouldn't be as upset if she died.

*Flees from the rightful off-topic poodling.*

Perpetuating the off-topic poodling ability, I would seriously be sad if Nanashi was the one to go. Nanashi is my favorite...

Back to TV Tropes: That site is as bad as Wikipedia. One glance at a useful entry somehow evolves into a two hour reading binge, ending at a topic completely unrelated but equally fascinating. I avoid them both, for they are my weakness. Like Kryptonite, only geekier...

TVT?

Oh, I am all over this.

New First Comics (Redux)
Mineral Macguffin (Soulstones)
All Your Powers Combined (Nan)
Really Seven Hundred Years Old (Almost everyone)
Proud Warrior Race Guy (Fel)
Perpetual Frowner (Gwen)
The One Guy (Z)

I'll have to see if I can do some work actually editing the page later >_>

I LOVE TVT!

That wasn't meant to be all caps, but grammar made it so.

@ Mane: I'd say keep things that haven't happened yet and are only speculation out of it Very Happy

Adding: Timey Wimey Ball, Personality Powers (hey, maybe we could retroactively figure out Willow's power...), Superspeed, Dumb Muscle, Kill it with Fire, Shock and Awe, Voluntary Shapeshifting, Elemental Powers and more previously mentioned by others, as well as a whole plethora of others.

EDIT: There, I added Amazon Brigade, Animesque, Blow You Away, Dumb Muscle, Elemental Powers, The Five Man Band Part, Genki Girl, Healing Hands, Invisible Man, Intangible Man, Life Energy, Mind Over Matter, Mineral McGuffin, Motor Mouth, New First Comics, Perpetual Frowner, Personality Powers, Pink Bishoujo Ghetto, Playing With Fire, Prehensile Hair, Proud Warrior Race Guy, Required Secondary Powers, Rubber Man, Shock and Awe, Super Mode, Super Senses, The One Guy, The Toblerone, Timey Wimey Ball and Voluntary Shapeshifting. And 30 is where I stop.

Have you added ES to all those pages as well?

EDIT: no, you haven't. It's FAR more useful to spread the ES wicks through the wiki than it is to link out to them from one page. links out don't gain new traffic. Links in do.

And I might prune out some of the more...esoteric wicks you've added. Some of them don't make a lot of sense.

Yes, that might be a god idea. O_o I think I went a little overboard, perhaps. I tend to do that.

No, I didn't. I was intending to it today, because it took long enough to stick them in in the first place. I'll get on it!
