Also someone awesome, and I forgot who, and I’m terribly, terribly sorry for that, created this Tv Tropes page for Waifs and Strays.I have lost some recommenders, though I’ve gained some new ones, and I hope that more regular updates (Or any updates at all.

But I’m very grateful and if I recall the person who did it, I’ll give you full credit!
