Merge with Fictional universe[edit]

There doesn't appear to be any established distinction between a fictional universe and a fictional setting, so the two don't really need to be distinct. Serendipodous 13:47, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Yes there is because a fictional universe is a complete different topic than fictional setting
Got a reference for that? Serendipodous 03:09, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure I may agree somewhat, but the argument is weak. Is there a tautologist in the house? —Aladdin Sane (talk) 08:19, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
This is one of those times when Wikipedia really collapses as a resource. Everyone knows what a fictional universe is, everyone can explain what a fictional universe is, but no one (that I can find) has left a citation explaining what a fictional universe is. And until we can find one, we can't have an article on it. Serendipodous 14:01, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Name change to Setting (narrative)[edit]

All the other basic literary elements have been described as so (conflict, plot, character), so why not this one? - (talk) 20:19, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Citation error[edit]

I wanted to correct the format of this citation from the section "role of setting", but as it makes no sense to me I'm posting it here - feel free to correct it:
