Trope Shelf.
« on: June 29, 2022, 05:40:50 AM »
I’m creating this space as a tool for other writers to receive inspiration.
90lbsofdynamite  used to do a very strong trope system for the story contest and I’m going to add it here.

This is for anyone who wishes to look be inspired and add their own tropes and maybe someone might carry on a story that one feels lacking in writing.
I for one struggle with male POVs yet there are many male based ideas floating about.

So this is for anyone who

Needs ideas
Wants to share ideas
Discuss ideas.
Looking to write their first story
And anything else anyone wants to add so it’s in a nice handy click away.

So today I’m putting forward the following summer tropes.

A quiet peaceful  picnic gone wrong.

A music festival setting, think Woodstock 99!

Beach party mayhem. Spring Break, holiday resort etc

A dangerous ice cream man.

Cruise ship, crewmember being a predator victim wealthy tourists.

4th Of July themed story.

Gay Pride themed story.

Have fun and again welcome to any tropes that people have in their shelf in their head.

Thanks Jess, these are good ideas.  Let me add a couple.



Camping misadventure

Tourists getting in over their heads with the locals

Senior Week From Hell

College Orientation/Arriving at college (especially a RavishU themed story)

Protest gone wrong

School/class/band trip.  Might have to get creative with the rules here, could always make it a college team.

Always close the program you were running before exiting the holodeck

I saw a few on DA and my own ideas:
A "patient" in a mental hospital(DA);
Boy learns that his crush has a drone(original);
Girl gets caught by a wild or supernatural creature(the ending of a story I have here);
Blackmailed into submission.

Great ideas and I may even take a few of them on board.

A patient in a mental hospital couldn’t be anymore vulnerable to abuse
Or in the case of being a rapist, he’d be the ultimate danger. Deranged, sick in the head, without a care for the consequences. Good idea!

Blackmail is always a sexy theme for me. The forced yet gentle approach to be taken against my will is a hot topic and quite realistic in the big picture.

Great ideas. Protests are certainly in vogue at the moment in the real world so plenty of ideas to be hatched in there.

Yes the days of school trips gone bad seem over on here.
Camping is a dangerous thing to do at the best of times and I can see a realistic story being portrayed with that

A good tongue in cheek RU story is needed I think with authors and members as characters. Has been done before by our most passionate member here but could do with a reboot.

Great ideas Lt Broccoli

Today’s tropes are fairly realistic.

Former college mate catches up with an old friend of the opposite gender. He used to like her but was rejected many times in collage.  and finds she now shows him interest due to his financial success so he finds a way of humiliating her.

A usually uneventful routine walk has bad results.

An deranged fan tracks down the OnlyFans model and teaches her how to reject him.

A lesbian daughter hates her father’s  new homophobic gold digging partner. (Definitely one for the guys)

Dancing with a man who wants more than a kiss and phone number.

Another one I can bring:
Girl decides to break up because her boyfriend doesn't earn money easily. He decides to get revenge.

Jess, that deranged fan one I did in one story of mine. But didn't include rape in mine.

I must take a look at that and a consensual story on that line makes sense too.

Really like the boyfriend getting angry at her leaving him  a revenge story can remove a lot of rationalities to a rapist. He just wants revenge and to hell with the consequences.

Well it's about time that i let go a few that been rattling around my story mind!

A scientist  tests out a new formula that alters the mind of male test subjects

A pair of sisters plagued by a group of men who wants their property!

An innocents adventures in a notorious red light district of a major city!

A groupie meets the band they idolize  and winds up being taken by the band as a personal sex slave!
When I get around to it, I'll write

That suggestion is the classic "Your business is never gonna take off" trope.

Some ideas, free to use, off the top of my head.
Love the HistBuff stories. Originally i discovered RU because I wondered about the nuns of Congo.....
But history gives us many settings for possible stories.
All and every war in history, with both sides possible rapist and victims.
An unfortunate read of "Loins of Amon", a classic porn novel from Olympia press introduced me to the concept.
It might be tempting to open a history of the world, let it fall open at a random place, and set a rape story in that historical setting, that particular conflict, from Gilgamesh fucking every bride in mighty Ur, to what sad atrocity might be found in tomorrows news.
But just to mention a few, which might have the soothing distance of time:
London under the blackout of the Blitz.
The Zulu wars, and all the African colonial conflicts of the 19th and 20th century.
Vikings , Vandals , Huns and every wandering tribe from the migration period.
It is actually historically possible that a French or Burgundian maid might be gang raped by a viking, a hun and an arab if they by chance cought her in their respective raids
The pirates of the Carribean, note Defoe's note about Blackbeard's wife  which I have posted elsewhere.
The Romans and almost everybody else, from Pict druidesses to Persians princeses, Batavian milkmaids to Mauritanian shepherdesses.

The
I am for interracial sex,; white fucking black, black fucking white, and everybody fucking asian girls.
