I'd like to ask then, What is dramatic?Nathan_H said:
Things are hopefully suspenseful, but not dramatic. I mean, it all depends on the messenger, and the message. If no one cares, it's just nothing.
I think it's sometimes lazy to use the unknown as the source of drama, instead of the way there. It's the means to something, not that something. The unknown is the carrier, not the message.
And I don't buy that things are dramatic because they're unknown. Things are maybe interesting because we learn only a bit at a time, or it makes us lean in to something, attracts us to something, but the unknown loses it's appeal.
Things are dramatic because they're in opposition, they just start off unknown.
