|Stories - Part Five: Relationships and Communication
Relationships are about how people like or dislike each other. If they like each other then they collaborate; if they dislike each other then they compete. The extremes of relationships are Love and Hate.
The following questions about relationship come up in stories:
We know that Sherlock Holmes never gets the girl, while James Bond always does. Popeye constantly has to fight Bluto to keep him away from Olive Oyl, while Prince Charming has to fight off all the ladies that are after him. The 'perfect relationship' with a happy-ever-after ending rarely comes in reality, but the potential is always there. Stories are able to get closer to it than most people do in real life, and that is what makes stories interesting. But to do so, the elements of the story must have some credibility.
