I'm not sure how long this game will last.
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage - Basically a website that lists the elements of a story.
For example, for Jame's Cameron's Avatar.
Aliens Speaking English (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AliensSpeakingEnglish): Justified, since they were taught it. Also, some of the humans can speak Na'Vi.
Death Glare (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/DeathGlare): Jake gets a nice long one from almost everyone in the Omaticaya tribe during his first night at Hometree.
So what this game is about is to get one of your stories and list several tropes down, and why it has that trope (unless it's self-explanatory)
I'll use Roses to start and give you an example.
Break the Cutie (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BreakTheCutie)
Hoist by his own Petard (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HoistByHisOwnPetard) - Inverted by the fact that it's the protagonist that gets hurt by the roses.
