TV Tropes Monday: New Year’s Resolutions


Tweet of the Day: World Building: Magic Systems

Believe it or not, I like to think of this trope as a character trope.

Why?

Because the making of new year’s resolutions as well as the nature of said resolutions can reveal a lot about a character. What they wish to accomplish tells us a lot about their hopes and fears. Characters who make resolutions show a need to bring their lives under their control while those that don’t either already feel in control or believe that trying to control it is beyond their means. And, whether they keep said promises, for how long or if at all shows the character will or lack there of.

So, are you one to make and keep new year’s resolutions?
