Shouldn't the character page somehow be linked to the comic book, like have a line say "go to this page (link) for their comic book characterization" or something? Alot of the tropes mentioned here for the characters such as Bigby and Snow especially originates from the comic. I don't know, it feels like it dismisses where the characters actually come from. Not to sound like I'm complaining, just wondering.

Put a note in the description, I'd say.

Why is Faith "an obscure Fable from French folklore", when she is clearly referenced by her German name Allerleirauh from the well-known German version of the fairy tale?

In researching the fable when I was writing her entry, I used her game-given description of 'donkey-skin girl', and she is clearly described as such in the French story. The German tale uses furs from many different creatures.

Regards the 'Ship Tease' trope under Bigby; yes, CK, I'm well aware that Snow & Bigby end up together in the comics. This is not the comics, however, so it applies here(and could even be said to apply all the way up to the Storybook Love arc until Snow tells him that she 'is' interested).

CK? Either way, I think it's fine. You could add something explaining the situation, something like "* Ship Tease: With Snow, although it appears to be one-sided. She does eventually begin to show feelings towards Bigby later in the storyline, and especially later in the comics."

Yah, CK. "ConfuzzledKoala.";) It's just personal preference with me, in that I don't see any point in listing Tropes that apply to a later incarnation of the property. *shrugs*

Well, it sounds good, although I should point out that it wasn't me who changed the description in the first place. :P But I'd have to agree if a trope was specific to a later incarnation, especially since there is a Fables page, and a Characters/Fables page.

Pertaining to this dialogue.

Bigby: I just want you to be careful. I almost lost you once.
Snow: I'm not yours to lose!

Isn't that simply just one optional situation which can only come about if the player chooses wrongly, and not necessarily indicative that the Ship Tease is one-sided considering the context of the scene.

Also, there were some other scenes of the two together which were more indicative of a definite shared Ship Tease than anything else.

The Taxi scene where Bigby and Snow go to the Trip Trap bar comes to mind. It kinda screamed Ship Tease especially with the awkward start.

There was also the scene I believe wherein Snow was worried about Bigby after their initial encounter with Bloody Mary.

At the very least some amount of sexual tension can be interpreted from alot of their scenes together apart from that single dialogue which can avoided.

Thing is, since this is a prequel, we know where they'll end up. Is there a Foregone Conclusion flavor of romance tropes?

Should Faith's name, and her death, from Episode 1 be spoiler-tagged? It usually is on the main page, but here it sometimes is and sometimes isn't. I think it should be, but what do you guys think?

I'd say no. Personal opinion: if you're deep enough into a game that you're looking at its character sheet on TV Tropes, I think you should be prepared for the possibility of spoilers.

More objectively: Faith shows up for ten minutes at the start of episode 1. We learn her name in the very next chapter of the story. There is nothing plot-related that could be spoilered by knowing that the woman whose murder kicks off the plot is called Faith.

Well how about we leave her name unmarked, as it's not really plot-related, but tag her death, as it is about a third of the way through the first episode before it happens, and it's a pretty shocking moment at that. If this proves to be to hard or obnoxious, we can always just change it back later. What do you say?

There's been a lot of changes regarding this lately, so I thought I'd just open it up for discussion: Do you guys think Bloody Mary qualifies as a Spoiler Character - A character whose entire existence is a spoiler, and such their entry is hidden in a "Spoiler Character" folder?

I don't think that her name constitutes a spoiler.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
