I am thinking about a story, where a lot happens in OS terms.
The IC’s are also interesting and the RS to the MC also.
Several places to visit, several problems occur along the way.
To illustrate all that, I have a kid following a journey.
That kid is moved on from place to place, by the different IC people.
But the kid is basically a passenger, a vehicle to show what is happening in the OS.
So that is only a player in Dramatica terms, if I understand it correctly.
The people that move the kid, are players in their particular place where they are working and not moving, illustrating some IC characteristics.
And there isn’t (yet?) a change versus steadfast arc between the IC’s and the MC.
The kid accepts what is happening.
A story without an MC seems strange to me.
But a story missing a conflict is a tale.
The only thing I can come up with now, is perhaps Forrest Gump, which has Jenny, Bubba and Dan as IC’s.
Or Oliver Twist from Charles Dickens seems also possible (not sure if that is Dramatica proven Grand Argument Story)
I was wondering if that is possible, and if there are examples.
Or should the MC not be a person perhaps but a system, government, worldview? Would that work?
Any thoughts or help is appreciated very much.
