All in-universe (IU) articles are to be written in the '''past tense''', from the perspective of someone from the future documenting factual events. All articles for ''characters, places, objects,'' and ''events'' within the show's fictional world are written in the past tense style. This creates consistency across all in-universe articles and eliminates the necessity of subjectively deciding when an unresolved loose end is no longer "current" or "recent."
