Slap Slap Kiss, Tall Dark And Snarky, and Other Things

Just some (light) reading fare for a lovely Sunday evening. If you haven't checked it out already, the Gone with the Wind entry on offers a pretty long and amusing list of the main tropes/themes from our favorite book and movie.  

Some of my favorites? 
  • Manipulative Bastard: Scarlett and Rhett both revel in this. Naturally, it makes their relationship somewhat difficult. 
  • Slap Slap Kiss: Rhett and Scarlett are all over this one.
  • Unreliable Narrator: If you ignore Scarlett's obstinate insistence throughout the book that she loves Ashley and that Rhett doesn't love her, you can actually see the evidence to the contrary very clearly.
The full list is available here: 


  1. I love TV.Tropes! If I recall correctly, I believe I introduced young Bugsie to the website...

  2. And many an hour was lost as result :P
