Do we need to send in the peacekeeping forces here?

That was what TVTropes would call one of Hanners's "Crowning Moments of Glory".

The actual trope is Crowning Moment of Awesome. Or it used to be, until they renamed it.  :facepalm:

AprilArcus,

I'm willing to call a truce if you are. 

We really don't need an angry Hanners all up in our business. 



That sounds a lot worse than I meant it to...   :-P

It is very recent. It seems that too many people were sticking just any old ordinary moment of awesome into Crowning Moment of Awesome, so the tvtropes mods responded with nukes.

I figured it had to be something like this. I mean, you can only have one Crowning Moment of Awesome. Like new Battlestar Galactica. When Galactica jumps to New Caprica during the break out, proving that--unlike most modern SciFi spaceships, battlestars can not fly. Now, one can debate if this was THE CMoA for the series, but if it's not, it's not. You can break it down by character, but you can still only have one per character.

Or Rebuild of Evangelion. Lots of truly awesome stuff, and plenty of characters to have their own CMoA. Focus on Shinji. Here's a guy who is anti-(as in "not at all")heroic that there's at least one whole youtube series devoted to making fun of him. He really is kinda pathetic. In all fairness, he's supposed to be the kid off the street, thrown into an impossible situation. He's just more realistic than that trope usually is. So, during Evangelion 2.0 when Shinji restarts his power depleted EVA by sheer force of will, and proceeds to (rather casually) kick the shit out of the most powerful angel faced so far, then proceeds (Again, basically by will alone) to initiate 4th Impact... that's a CROWNING Moment of Awesome.

I'm going to stand behind that one as not something you can argue with.

But there's someone--maybe on this forum--who would argue. And that's why a CMoA page, with examples, on a wiki is just not possible.

Also, THIS may be Hannelore's CMoA. Jeph says in the news post "She yelled so hard Faye sobered up and Angus didnt need glasses anymore"

I checked. Angus never wears glasses again.

I'm wondering if Hannelore made some comment about Angus's glasses that so hurt him, emotionally, that he HAD to use contacts from that day forward for his self-image's sake!  :-o

The glasses vaporized and Angus's corneas spontaneously reshaped.

No, no, no. Angus, in panel four, is holding his glasses, looking stunned. If she hurt his feelings over them, I would assume he'd be looking at the glasses not the windows. Since he has them in hand they weren't vaporized.

The word of god is in the news post. Hanners's intimidate roll was so high it shocked Faye sober and corrected Angus's vision. Then she made a soothing cup of herbal tea.

Hannelore is not to be trifled with.

The lenses vaporized. I'm going to stand with my headcannon to the end.

He's got half rims. If the vaporized her wouldn't have his thumb against the right lens... because it wouldn't be there.

The recoil on those things is a bitch.
