True Love's Kiss is a trope that is fairly popular, mainly in Disney-related fandoms. When two characters who are considered to be in True Love kiss, it usually cures whatever magical spell/curse that one character (usually the female) is in. For example, in Snow White the Evil Queen puts Snow White under a sleeping curse and only Prince Charming can cure her because their love is True Love.
This is a very common trope that can be seen in Once Upon a Time show AND fandom.
