TV Tropes

Quite possibly one of the biggest time sucks on the Web (be sure to set a timer or arrange for someone who cares about you to rescue you after a certain period of time), but also a wealth of reference material and examples in multiple medias (books, comics, tv, movies, radio, games, art, music, fanfic, you name it) about characters and plotting ... the good, the bad, and everything in between. To start exploring, either scroll down a bit to find the main trope list in the left sidebar or search a favourite title, character, creator, or known-trope-of-interest in the search box at the top. Everything is connected to everything, so once you get yourself started you could end up anywhere!

Also a great place to find new reading/viewing/listening (plug in something you like and get tons of references to similar entertainments)
