Good

if at the end of the story the Main Character is no longer nagged by his personal problems, the judgment of the story can be said to be Good

This dynamic defines where the Author sees the story developing from an objective point-of-view. In this case, that Plot Dynamic would be if at the end of the story the Main Character is no longer nagged by his personal problems, the judgment of the story can be said to be Good. For example:

  • a group of widows overcomes a long history of prejudice
  • a group of critics feels at peace with their decision
  • a group of capitalists enjoys a moment of peace

Original Dramatica® Definition:

The Main Character ultimately succeeds in resolving his personal problems -- Even though the effort to achieve the story's goal may result in success, this is not necessarily a good thing for the Main Character. In fact, success might be obtained in the objective story even though the Main Character fails to resolve his personal problems. Similarly, the effort to achieve the story goal might end in failure yet the Main Character ends up overcoming his personal problems. Regardless of whether the objective story ends in Success or Failure, if the Main Character succeeds in resolving his personal problems the outcome is deemed Good.
