Whoniverse: Class Appreciation Week – Day 4 – Favorite Theme: Inverted Tropes

Charlie is the white male protagonist–the alien prince without a people.  This is meant to be his tragic backstory.  She’s just the terrorist who attacked his people.  And yet…?  This becomes her story.  She is a freedom fighter against an oppressive regime.  The ‘tragic prince’ is the heir to a morally questionable monarchy.  He is not the hero (nor is she the villain) one would expect.

How To: Identify Major Themes in a Story.

If you struggle to understand how to find the themes and motifs in a novel or play, here are a few ways to break it down. I will be using Disney’s The Little Mermaid as my example.

1. Start by looking at the motives of the main character, and how the secondary characters support or discourage the protagonist’s goals. Ariel’s main goal is to become human and several themes stem from this. These themes include the desire to be someone else (identity crisis), the dangers of the human world (Sebastian and her father are against humans), and independence (disobeying her father, learning who to trust and not to trust).

2. Look at the background information of the protagonist. What physical and familial aspects are emphasized about your character? The Little Mermaid focuses on how Ariel is a teenager with an over protective father. Therefore, there is a strong theme of family and the theme of growing up in the story. Consider how your novel or play, focuses or doesn’t focus, on family connections, age, gender, and the culture of the story (including social class, race, and religion if applicable).

3. Analyze the setting, it’s often a character itself too. How the story’s location is portrayed is an important motif and sets the mood of the plot. In the Little Mermaid, there is the setting of the sea, which is bright, colourful and safe. There is also the setting of land, which is new, exciting but also dangerous. These two settings are like characters in the sense that they both have depth and stereotypes made about them. The sea is familiar to Ariel but there is a dark side to it, like Ursula. The land is assumed to be totally unsafe and evil, but it has beauty and good qualities just as much as the sea.

4. Finally, you can look at how the story’s main conflict is expressed. How are the repeating metaphors related to the conflict. The problem could be related to nature, death, animals etc. Ariel’s conflict of wanting to be human is expressed through sacrifice, nature and youth. A main metaphor in this story is voice: the power of words, the loss of  identity, and communication both romantically and platonically.

Go check out the blogs I used gifs from! :)

Hey kids. I’ve noticed a disturbing trend in my followers, and I need to address it before it becomes an even bigger problem. I have it very plainly written in my rules that I am NOT interested in writing with duplicates of my muse, and I am very uncomfortable being followed by people who write Guy too. Especially when those people reblog gif sets from me and then start talking about wanting to make Guy their newest “theme” for their multi-muse less than 36 hours after I made a new theme for this blog. No, I’m not even trying to be vague here. 

I’ll quote directly from my rules, since they were clearly not read:

“- I will not follow back other portrayals of the same muse and frankly have no interest in any following me. All portrayals that follow me will be blocked and ignored.”

I am not a resource for you, nor am I someone to “borrow” ideas from. Anyone who has a problem with that can unfollow me now. Thank you.
