Tropes and cliches

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 8, 2016, 7:47 AM

Zime's Ramblings

I appreciated everyone's responses on the journal about Mary Sues.
The majority of us agreed that Mary Sue/ Gary Stu can be very appropriate depending on the story that's being told. :thumbsup:
Most of the characters that came up were comic book characters, classic literature characters and anime characters. All loveable despite being in the Sue category.

So let's talk about cliches and tropes now!

I firmly believe that cliches and tropes don't mean a damn thing.
In my mind a story is either well told or poorly told; A movie/book/TV show can be awesome in spite of being cliche if it's well made and engaging.
True, it helps to be original, but there are many, many stories I adore in spite of being predicable. A recent example: Disney's new live action Cinderella is cliche AND has a Mary Sue, but it's beautifully made, engaging, has loveable characters and is simple but well told.

What do you guys think? Do people throw around the words "trope" and "cliche" in a contemptuous way too often?

Zime howdy?! :glomp:
Hope you're doing well and have spend a good weekend. Just wanted to pass by to say hi and thank you a lot for Jupiter! Is the most cool and fun webcomic I've seen in years 😄
And yours are the most amazing and creative stories I've seen in my life!

Zimeta, your art is truly great. I read May The Rain Come and I was hooked instantly. Jupiter is so amazing too! I can tell you put a lot of thought and detail in each page. God bless you!

I would love to donate to your group if it wasn't choosing to follow a corrupted Walt Disney Animation Studio while blindly glorifying all that computer animated garbage that's been destroying their feature animation department, so fuck you I guess.

I have my own Disney group now. And my group exists to remind everyone of what the true animation of Disney was and what it's supposed to be. There won't be any false ideas spread from me regarding what's currently been coming out of that studio.
