Yes, I did try that. But for some reason the drop down search function did not work (on ipad). Maybe I was just typing "relationship throughline."
Now, I am able to access these articles through my desktop. Thanks.
On the "Emotional Ladder" article, you say
the impact of these emotions on the Premise is not yet fully understood.
I think this is the struggle I'm having. Trying to find the connection.
But in light of the Emotional Ladder article, I have a feeling RS feeds into OS solution. At least that's how in my story the Solution is able to be achieved: because of how they dealt with the RS issue, with the final tip-angle of the Issue/Counterpoint they arrived at the RS Solution and so avoided the OS Consequence.
In fact, in the Re-Imagining the Key Relationships article, it seems that for each of the stories mentioned, also, until the RS gets to a certain point the OS Solution CANNOT kick in appropriately.
Luke: Until he starts to believe all the things Obiwan told him, he cannot shoot the Deathstar.
Will Hunting: Until he is willing to bend to the therapist and until he is willing to let his "brother" go, he cannot find resolution.
Rick/Ilsa: Until Rick is able to forgive Ilsa's betrayal, he cannot give up the bar in order to let Ilsa leave.
Maybe I'm confusing the IC with the RS. On the other hand, maybe this is why for so many years, the RS was considered to be IC/MC. I think there is a balance-angle that needs to happen BETWEEN them (or even with an external non-IC romance character) that bolsters the MC or Protagonist to be able to reach the solution and not fold to the Consequence.
The IC is also compelling them, actively maneuvering to challenge them in that throughline. But maybe the "space between them" also has to be just-so.
If I recall, in Lord of the Flies, it's not till the IC is killed that the OS is solved.
I've read both things. The RS is NOT related to OS, and then the quote above, that the RS connection in the story PREMISE is not understood. The Premise is a line from story goal to MC focus to OS Solution to Judgment. I think in there we need consequence/RS.
