Talk:List of recurring themes

From Heroes Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a page I've been wanting to make for a while now. Bear with me while I make it. :) ---- 01:54, 4 January 2007 (EST)

  • Some other big ones to consider: Family, Fate vs. Free Will, Loyalty vs. Treachery.--Hardvice (talk) 02:49, 4 January 2007 (EST)
  • Oh, and of course Heroism—Hiro's quest as hero's quest, his comments to Ando about the nature of a hero, Peter as Claire's hero, sacrifice as a theme (Eden, Niki, Peter), different characters reactions to their abilities (reluctance, exploitation, acceptance, etc.)--Hardvice (talk) 03:02, 4 January 2007 (EST)
  • Also, we should probably consider a "recurring themes" category for these articles.--Hardvice (talk) 03:06, 4 January 2007 (EST)
  • I think this page is a great idea. I've been wanting to make a Heroism page for awhile - it consumes so much of Hiro's and Peter's (and others') conversation. - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:30, 4 January 2007 (EST)
  • I think we should add vengeance to this. Claire crashing Brody's car,Jessica shooting D.L., Sylar maight be doing something for revenge too. Heroe 22:48, 16 January 2007 (EST)
    • Absolutely. Personally, I would call it "revenge" (to allow for verbs: [[revenge]]s, [[revenge]]d), but that's neither here nor there. Good idea. Avoid speculating about Sylar's motives, though. - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:05, 16 January 2007 (EST)

Specialness vs. normalcy?

When I first watched Heroes (getting caught up on DVD before the 2nd season), one theme that seemed to be always popping up again was "Specialness vs. normalcy." Sylar kills people in an eternal quest to be the 'most special;' this quest for specialness is pushed for by his mother. In contrast, Claire finds that she is special but works viciously to be the opposite: normal. HRG also sacrifices much for the sake of Claire's normalcy. However, in the end, Claire accepts her specialness while Sylar (in the scene with his mother) tries to be normal. Certainly there are other examples (Peter wanting to be special and Nathan wanting to be normal, just to name a few), but I think there's enough to make a 'theme' page for this. What do the more experienced people here think? --Rekidk 13:22, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

  • I'm not opposed to it, but I'd much rather call it "singularity" or "uniqueness" than "specialness". I'd start it out as a user page (something like "User:Rekidk/Uniqueness vs. normalcy") and see where it goes from there. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:11, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

God and Religion

I think we should add a "God & Religion" page. With all the religous references in this sci-fi show (the Japanese meaning behind the symbol, Sandra's talk about faith in Company Man), it would be a fitting page to have in this category.--CelestialMystic 23:22, 1 March 2007 (EST)

  • Agree. I put that on my user page as an article I'd like to see. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:41, 1 March 2007 (EST)
  • I agree too.Heroe 19:03, 9 March 2007 (EST)

Naming convention

I think we need to watch the case for these articles. For instance in "Blank vs. Something", "Something" should be lower case. As an example, in context proper capitalization would be: "This is a discussion of fate vs. free will." (Admin 18:22, 4 January 2007 (EST))
