Re: Well...

>>Oh, thanks so much for this list! I guess I should've thought about searching online, but I didn't think it'd be worth it to go through all the chaff when I own a number of books on writing.<<

Glad I could help! It took me a few minutes to refine the search to find what I wanted, but I knew it had to be out there.

It's not so much whether one has books on writing, as the right book for the current dilemma.

>> and amazingly enough they don't seem to have a specific trope page for "hypnotic/brainwashing drug"! <<

Huh ... you should suggest that to them. It's a recognizable trope.

Hmm, that's true.

Yeah, I was surprised. I thought maybe I wasn't looking harder enough, but I couldn't find the page under the "Mind Control" tropes page or the "Drugs" page. I thought it'd be a subset of "Mind Control Devices" but it wasn't there either. So instead I'm simply re-reading my original inspiration for the idea (the main storyline of the manga Gunsmith Cats) and trying to figure out what I can use and what I need to change. I'll probably poke around on the general mind control pages again and see if anyone added drug-related ones in there.
