On a related note, I would prefer for the picture to be taken off Sick and Wrong. The page is supposed to be in-universe examples only, not a place for us to stick everything that upsets us, and the picture is an example of the latter. I don't support sexualising children, but having that picture on the page invites Trope Decay.

Rin's a great example, but that'll never fly around here.
Oh! What about...oh whats her name...the little western gothloli in Ore Tachi Ni Tsubasa Wa Nai? There might be a good scene with subs that express this. I'll try to check tomorrow if I get a chance.
(ugh, just realized how much work the work page for that needs...)

I think this is the safest image that can be used for this trope, something else would either be not representative of the trope or considered pedobait.
The Sick and Wrong image can perfectly be changed to something else, while this would be harder, plus the image fits here way better than in the other trope.
No, I think it would be better for sick and wrong, I don't think just because it's not some in universe example-doesn't mean it would lead to trope decay...
Besides, in-universe example right here on TV Tropes...it sure is something we would all consider...Sick and Wrong!
If we're gonna keep going back and forth on which trope the image fits more, we should just scrap the image entirely and focus our energy on finding new images for both tropes. Really, it seems that the image only fits either trope due to justifications and concessions, and that shouldn't be needed.
In short, we can do better.
How about this one for Fille Fatale, cropped out of the Skip Beat! that rd85jejfcd3qujtw3940ri suggested on the first page. She's freakin' 7 and it sure looks like she knows exactly what she's doing to him.

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
The one in post 31, right?
I didn't get the trope from the Evangeline picture, because I didn't get an immediate sense of the character's age. It also looks like we're past the seductive behavior bit. The Skip Beat! pic is kinda long and text heavy but it seems more on the money.
