 Style: The traffic in men: female kinship in three novels by George Eliot
She describes Eliot's use of "other" women as part of a narrative strategy that, before it defers to the marriage plot, simply defers it, as a narrative of female sameness and differentiation unfolds (50).
In theorizing what she has called "sororophobia," Helena Michie has described this gesture as part of a "submerged counter-narrative - the sister plot - which interacts in complex ways with the dominant romance plot" (50).
It does not contradict the narrative of the traffic in women to say that underlying the marriages is an exchange the Oedipal theory does not cover, an exchange between two women that tells the story in a different voice.

 The Forge :: View topic - RPGs and Soap Operas [LONG]
Most explicit narrative models in RPGs depend upon the notion of “arc.” Discussions of session, in particular, strongly encourage this traditional narrative structure: beginning (problem, premise, issue), middle (development, tension, conflict), climax, denouement.(1) The campaign as well often follows this structure, with a series of somewhat episodic sessions building overall to a grand story arc.
Similarly, concluding with a Background plot can set the stage effectively for the next session, and act as a cool-down, but it may be equally appropriate to end with the climax of a plot that is finishing up.
In a related vein, the group plot must move to incorporate all the others.

 English Composition 1: The Narrative Essay
Narratives, as stories, should include these story conventions: a plot (so tell your readers what is happening), including setting and characters; a climax (a peak experience often leading to the thesis, the important realization); and an ending (explaining how the incident resolved itself, also alluding to how the narrative's thesis comes to it full realization).
owever, whether you use narrative as the rhetorical mode of the essay as a whole or just of a single paragraph within an essay, there are some principles and conventions of the narrative that readers commonly expect.
Even if the essay as a whole primarily uses another method of development, the narrative paragraph can be incorporated into an essay to support a topic sentence in a particular paragraph and to establish a bit of ethical appeal at the same time.
