Howdy friends, and happy (late) fourth of July to you all from this limey bast-- Anyway, I have a little update for you all, and a question. There might be a couple of interesting things in here somewhere:
Almost finished the Physics Domain (not as easy as you might expect!), and can confirm: one of the types has a full, completed quad. I'll let you take a wild guess which of the four Physics types has all four subgenres identified...
Some interesting patterns are emerging. The big one: as @actingpower spotted initially, the subgenres do, in fact, appear to line up with the thematic issues below their individual Types. I didn't look to the issues when researching, but they do appear to be lining up in hindsight. However, the Issues of the stories themselves don't line up with their subgenres (which I expected). For example, Collateral and Finding Nemo share a storyform but are in different subgenres. So that's interesting.
I'm also starting to think these contextual subgenres work as 'sub-types' to some degree and have some form of fractal logic of their own, but I'll explore that theory a little bit more when I come back with the Physics stuff.
Right. A question:
- I'm considering skipping the consequences this time as I'm finding that the Consequences, by and large, are just reflections of the concern subgenres with very small variations and can feel a bit repetitive. So it's up to you guys, and I'll only ask this one time: do you want the consequences? (EDIT: My lawyer has advised me to stress heavily that this is NOT a threat.)
I also intend to go through the Psychology types and polish them up a little bit to reflect the stuff I've learnt while researching all of this, so look for that at some point this week.
Thank you for reading this far.
