Why did you have to link to tvtropes? I was going to get something done today! I was going to be productive! Now all my hopes and dreams lie shattered, drowned in open tabs
That aside, this is awesome, a really wonderful idea!
However, I don't get how those story molecules are constructed. Are there special rules to it, which I'm missing? Do you only focus on particular aspects of the story?
For example, in the Star Wars molecule, I'm missing quite a bit:
- The Hero (Luke Skywalker)
- The Anti-Hero (Han Solo)
- The Chessmaster (Emperor Palpatine)
- Rebel Leader (Leia Organa)
- Complete Monster (Emperor Palpatine/Grand Moff Tarkin)
- Villain Protagonist (Darth Vader)
- Mooks (Stormtroopers!)
- Rule of Cool (Lightsabers, flying the Falcon into the insides of the 2nd Deathstar, AT-ATs, the Force, ...)
- The Hero's Journey (Luke Skywalker)
All of which are pretty important to the story, and I don't think you could really describe Star Wars without any of them.
