- That's an interesting look. I'd go a step further and note that the image you use to illustrate the structure is particularly apt because the reason for the difference between "Larroes Catch Meddlers" and a typical pulp story is that most pulp stories are heroic, while this one is a tragedy - and the plot structure you've offered is the Elizabethan tragedy structure.
The key difference is that heroic action is driven by the heroes' virtues; tragedy is driven by the protagonists' failings.23w
