This "Former Main Characters" page isn' working out. With the shift from season 6 to 7, we now have the main character of the first six seasons jettisoned from the Main Characters page simply because they're missing out for one reason. It seems to make more sense just to split it up by main heroes, main villains, and then put the more minor Regular Cast Members on the other pages.

Is there any point in keeping the Lacey part of Belle's entry under spoilers anymore? That happened way back in season 2 and for only a few episodes at that.

I had some difficulty with an addition to Emma Swan's Character sheet in the area of Despair Event Horizon given the events of "Best Laid Plans" and "Sympathy for the De Vil." Can someone input some data in this area?

The Despair Event Horizon trope is about a character who, as the trope page points out, lost all hope, not merely getting depressed, upset, or bored. Right now, Emma is pissed at her parents because of their unspeakable act (ie. sacrifying a child in order to be sure that their own would be pure of heart). That doesn't mean she "lost all hope". There is no despair here, just horror and fury. Therefore I removed it, since it was a misuse of the trope. Also, you can't list a trope which may or may not happen. Based on the facts we have, Emma didn't cross it. Only when (and only if) she does cross it we should list it on this page, not before. Now, we can wonder if other tropes could be used to describe her state of mind. I just added The Corruptible, and Emma may be a candidate for the Sanity Slippage one (as she may comes off as a little unhinged during those two episodes), though I'm not quite sure this one should be added yet.

Can we maybe get a different picture for Hook? This one kind of hard to make out, given how dark it is, and it only has him in profile.

Will Scarlet is a regular, as opposed to a cast member. Wouldn't it make more sense to move him from this page into the Wonderland or Storybrooke pages?

He was introduced as a main character, as I understand it. However I'd like to ask if that means we can stick Advertised Extra up there, at least for the first half of season 4.

Is this appropriate for Snow White:
- Abusive Parent: Technically, yes. She screwed up her daughter's life by sending her to Maine in a wardrobe. Then, she said she was a first time mother, when she most definitely was not. Then, she yelled at her already struggling with magic daughter. All the things just listed can - and will - mentally scar someone. So, yes, Snow is an abusive parent.

Wow that's Ron the Death Eater. The guy apparently forget why Snow abandonned Emma.

And that Snow, in pretty much every sense of the word, actually is a first-time mother, at least with a newborn. Was it an insensitive thing to say? Yeah. Was it abusive? HELL NO. Also, yelling at your child makes you abusive? Well, apparently my parents were, then, though both they and I would strongly disagree.

Since Red's being demoted to extra, should we move Red to the former main character section?
06:01:51 PM Apr 30th 2013
Should we add Neal to the main characters? He's been in practically all the episodes since "Manhattan". According to Twitter, he'll be in the last three episodes as well.

It seems the page is broken. Should we just move the former main characters off?
07:58:05 AM Mar 28th 2013
I'm pretty sure you're right...this happens when the page is too big. So do it, and if it doesn't work, we can bring up the problem on Ask the Tropers.

Just make a redlink (Characters.Once Upon A Time Former Main Characters) and hit the edit button on the new page. Copy and paste the relevant section over, update the main character page with a link to the new one, and make sure to properly set the page type for the new page. Page type is on the left side of the screen, under tools, near the top.

I would propose a change in Emma's picture quote from "You wanna change things? You're gonna have to go out there and change them yourself because there are no fairy godmothers in this world" to "Love is Strength" after the event in "Queen of Hearts."

She hasn't quite yet embraced The Power of Love entirely yet. Give it until the end of the season, and then we might have something.
