I’m new to this forum, and I apologize in advance if this is a repeat question.
I’ve read the Dramatica book. I’ve not yet bought the software. I’ve read many of the articles over on Narrative First (to further understand terminology), and this particular article caught my interest (regarding The Fault in Our Stars): https://narrativefirst.com/articles/the-fault-in-our-stars-an-anatomy-of-an-analysis
If I understand correctly, the 3D structure of Dramatica should line up properly. So, for instance, if my Overall Story Goal is Conceiving an Idea (within the Psychology class), then if I go one level down (to Variations), I see a quad of Permission/Deficiency, Expediency/Need. This seems to differ (in terminology) from the Narrative First article. They assign a quad in the Mind quad (Certainty/Potentiality and Probability/Possibility) that is in a DIFFERENT TYPE.
And then I realized that there’s an app called Subtext, which may or may not have different terms from Dramatica, but they still seem related somehow, because the author of Narrative First articles seems to be an expert in Dramatica.
Have the terms changed since the Dramatica book was placed online? Is Subtext a different beast altogether?
Thank you for your help. I may be simply looking at things incorrectly.
