I asked this question earlier:
In constructing a story, I plan on following the following patterns:
The Hero's Journey: The Hero's Journey
The Villain's Quest: The Villain's Quest
My question is, what would be the structure of "The Guardian's Journey"?
After talking with my sister, who has a Masters in Education and English, I discovered that what I'm looking for doesn't actually exist. She suggested that I do my own research to create this new thing. Again, this is "The Hero's Journey" mixed with "The Goddess's Journey", "The Villain's Journey", and "The Guardian's Journey".
This is literary research, which is something I'm not really experienced in. Where do I start, and what would be the process in this case?
