    We all knew the relationship between plot and flags.
    Not only it's on the novels, it's can be found in any forms of story telling.
    And yet, what was the best and the worst way of raising the flag? Im curious...
    Nor did i know that fame and the infamous flag words, but most of the time i knew the type of the raised flag.

    Like
    "what could go wrong" = death, trouble, direct karmic backlash. Ahh... Sweet flag

    A flag is a plot twist that the readers expect, but comes as an unpleasant surprise to the character who raised it(?)

    I think I don't make sense anymore... :blobdizzy::blobsweat_2:

    And the reason of it? Was it because of my last thread?

    If someone says the phrase "Did it die?" after a tough battle, then the author will most likely use it as a "revival spell" that not only points out the fact that it did not die, but has also made it even stronger.

    No, it's because you're a white guy talking about flags.

    it's not a specific example but the cliche soldier says, right before a huge battle, "when i return home i'm going to marry my sweetheart." I swear i read a novel once that actually had a bit that made fun of that specific version of the cliche'd trope.

    When two characters have a fight due to a misunderstanding, and then one of the characters was going to apologize 'the next time they meet'
    Usually after that the other character will die, enter a comatose state, or maybe the one who was going to apologize suddenly has a traffic accident and lost their memory.

    ...maybe I watch too much soap opera.

    Then there's the old classic: "It's quiet." and it's variant "It's quiet. Too quiet."

    The sisserou parrot is sometimes coloured either blue or purple (the parrot's actual colour).

    The presence of a rainbow in the coat of arms makes the flag of Nicaragua one of only two flags of a sovereign state to include the color purple, alongside the flag of Dominica.

    i stand corrected, now it is time to nuke them, so that my stupid fact is truth again

    "Maybe It's just my imagination" *Mc brushes it off* flag

    Whenever this happens another shit person would pop up.

    This Pisses me a lot when this happens especially if the mc got caught off guard, can't they at least have awareness?! Can't they at least become paranoid or something?!

    Or what’s also really common: they (particularly if they’re family members or mentors of the MC) make up and have a “I see that you were right all along moment,” and then the non MC character immediately dies in the “noble” sacrifice, often for absolutely nothing.
