Prone to Tears sounds nice; it could overlap with Tender Tears.

I don't like any of the proposed names except Prone to Tears, which isn't great, but it's way better than the others. Especially Crybaby.

[up] I agree with that as well.

Bumping as there is a Single Proposition crowner attached now.

Monaka from Dragon Ball Super is a Fragile Flower that is not a shrinking violet. He cries a lot, faints easily, and is somewhat of a coward, but is not shy but is not afraid of social interaction.

I'd argue that shrinking violet is really the page that needs renaming. Fragile flower is the more obvious title to me, but I do agree that the overlapping floral theme may be causing misuse.

That's why he wants you to have the money. Not so you can buy 14 Cadillacs but so you can help build up the wastes

Isn't the wrong crowner hooked? We are talking rename options already.

[up]No, a "Should this be renamed?" crowner is supposed to come before a "What should this be renamed to?" crowner. That said, I think it's been long enough (close to two months) that the former can be called in favor of renaming (especially since there are far more yeas than nays), and the latter can be hooked.

Calling in favor of rename. Now, let's brainstorm possible new names.

[up] There is already a rename crowner with possible names that should be hooked; Prone to Tears already has a good consensus behind it although perhaps it's still early to call.

It's looks like Prone to Tears is the clear winner

Current description could also use a re-write to make it less gendered and more distinct from Shrinking Violet.

Here's a rewrite of the description: Sandbox.Prone To Tears. We need to ditch the current illustration (and maybe the page quote) for not illustrating the trope.

May I replace the trope image with this? It suits the trope better.

There should probably be a separate Image pickin' thread about this, I'm not sure this is the best place to hash out the image. Suggestion is definitely an improvement over current but still might be too close to Shrinking Violet?

Any comments on Sandbox.Prone To Tears? I'd like to make the move soon.

Overall it's good, but I'd like to change paragraphs 3&4 to the following:

This can go several ways; making the audience sympathetic, comedic exaggeration of realistic people, or triggering a sense of protectiveness. A Drama Queen tries to invoke sympathy, but often ends up creating Wangst. Comedic examples are often the Butt-Monkey, as they are easy and amusing to abuse. Moe characters, such as the "Sad Girl In Snow", often prompt feelings of protectiveness both In-Universe and in audiences.

Well, the image depicts her crying, doesn't it? The current image doesn't even show that.

I turned Fragile Flower into a redirect. Should the old image be retained, at least temporarily, since the new image doesn't seem to have gone through Image Pickin'?

Alternative Titles: Fragile Flower

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
What should Fragile Flower be renamed to?
