Help! I is stuck in the interwebs!

Specifically, I found a link to the TV Tropes wiki. And it's awesome. And huge. I'm currently going through the fan-speak category, but there's so much other stuff I'm having to not let myself be distracted by yet. Oh, don't let the name put you off, it's not just TV - it's TV, films, books, anime, comics. I've been reading about Plot Induced Stupidity and the Idiot Ball; Hannibal Lectures; and a varity of fanfic tropes. The Draco In Leather Pants article, about horrible characters who are loved and reinterpreted by the fans, is great. I've finally found the exact definition of a Woobie, and yes, I'm quite vulnerable to woobieness. It talks about hurt/comfort fics, too, which...yeah. That's been a kink of mine since long before I knew about fanfic. I'm a bit worried by it being called "a disturbing hurt/comfort dynamic"; I always saw it as being a pretty harmless tendency!

I like their error message too, haven't seen a good error message for a while:
The database hates you right now. The entry might exist or it might not exist. We would clear this mystery up for you, if we could get to the database. We tried to look it up, but the database puked up an error:Can't connect to My SQL server on 'localhost' (10048)


Also, I want a brain cell, and also a Roomba. Although I'd have to keep my floors clearer for a Roomba to work.

Ooh, that is cool. I could see myself whiling away a good fews hours just surfing through random entries. Thanks.

Having spent several hours on it last night, I have come to the conclusion that I could spend weeks reading it. I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or not...

Nextian-cutie has a Roomba. It's great for terrorizing cats, apparently.

Oh crap, not another interesting and very hyperlinked wiki... I *always* get stuck in a link-tree on these things! :(

Oh thank you for the Woobie reference! I thought I was the only one that used that word, nobody else I know does. No idea where I picked it up from originally though...

I'm pretty sure I picked it up from somebody calling Ianto a woobie in Torchwood, and I had no idea what they were on about, but it sounded right, somehow.
