Hello! What is that (i don't know if it's a literary device or not) thing of writing where you deny something by over explaining it? It is used a lot in the podcast 'Welcome to Nightvale'. Like if you say 'there is nothing there. There is definitely not a green bottle that i stole from my mother when she was out of the house.' Or something like that.
It can be considered sarcasm or reverse psychology in some situations, but if there is a name for this, I can’t figure out what it is.
I believe that trope is called the ‘Suspiciously Specific Denial’. Or at least, very closely related to it.
