//This is what I think should happen:
// Create a new entry for Archetypal Character
and put the current Archetype
entry in there.
// Add an entry for Archetypal Theme
// Add an entry for Archetypal Plot
// New description for Archetype
, something like "An Archetype
is a universal theme, story or
character which is so fundamental that regardless of how many times it is used (or mis-used)
it never becomes stale, dated or cliched. As opposed to a trope which starts out as a good idea
(otherwise it would never be used enough to become a trope) but eventually becomes overused,
tired or obsolete."
//As it stands we're limited to character archtypes which is incomplete.
//While avoiding turning this site into a bunch of unreadable Lit Crit
mumbo jumbo is a Good Thing, IMHO if we ignore well established concepts we're in danger of creating our own Elephant in the Living Room
