In my story, everyone, mostly the protagonist (IC), is concerned about getting two characters (antagonist and main character) to reconcile and accept each other. I thought that would make the Overall Story about Manipulation, but I don’t understand whether the issue/Story Goal would be Changing One’s Nature (since the protagonist wants to change the antagonist’s mind to accept the main character, and while that’s going on, he tries to change everyone’s natures for the better) or Playing a Role (the protagonist and antagonist have a relationship that’s been complicated by the main character and the protagonist wants everyone to get along.). If I select Playing a Role, Changing One’s Nature could be the Requirement, which could work-- people changing themselves to make their roles in a family work like the The Rebel Without a Cause goal and requirement examples.
To complicate it further, the Romeo and Juliet example mentions a Story Goal about the friar trying to get the families to reconcile, and that’s listed as Doing, which I did not expect. I don’t know if that’s related to his activity of trying to marry the two, which is lumped in with reconciling the families, or if any reconciliation would be Doing. I suppose some activity would be involved in changing the opinions of people, but one could say that about any Throughline. I’m still fuzzy on the actual steps the characters will go about to achieve this goal, so my Story Form isn’t set in stone.
