What's the difference between this trope and Fragile Flower?

No, seriously. What's the difference?

Shrinking Violet is very shy, Fragile Flower is prone to crying. They're both vulnerable characters but they show it in different ways.

Why isn't Atoli from the dot.hack(.hack) universe(G.U era, at least, since that's where she 1st appeared) listed in either the Video Games or Anime + Manga sections, if I may ask? She was listed as a Shrinking Violet in her tv tropes profile in the dot.hack characters list, yet she isn't listed for some reason or another.

Why is Hinata still in this? She hasn't showed the traits of this trope since Part I and her first appearance of Part II, because she hadn't seen Naruto for three years. She's more a Shy Blue Haired Yamato Nadeshiko now. She doesn't shrink away from attention anymore, but she doesn't purposely draw it to her, either. I don't think that's a Shrinking Violet.

Out of curiosity, what is the Trope Namer?

(Oops, I meant to start a new topic.)

Because she WAS a Shrinking Violet. She'll always have been a Shrinking Violet, even if she isn't one now, and that qualifies her for the trope.

Character development doesn't change who they WERE.
