RumBelle needs their own set of friends. People like Belle but it also seems like they keep her out of the loop because of Rumple. How about Alice, Cyrus, Knave and Anastasia? Belle can help Knave get them caught up on technology.
They can raid the library and keep an eye on Rumple. Cyrus can relate to being hundreds of years old. Knave can be snarky all day every day with the Dark One. Both Alice and Anastasia know what it’s like to estranged from family. Want to see my Wonderland crew on a regular basis.
