And the Chalk threads don't necessarily involve Milliways at all, though I think there's a sort of implication that they're part of a Milliways-containing multiverse.

...and now I'm thinking we need terms for the degrees of relatedness. I think it goes: World -> Sheaf -> Continuity -> Genre.

Come to think of it, Elcenia-the-continuity is a member of the Effulgenceoid-genre on its own.

How is Elcenia-continuity an Effulgenceoid?

Well, the premise is "Rhysel in the summoning circle", so it's as qualified as any Chalk thread. The only unusual thing about it is that it contains only original settings, so it's not any kind of crossover fanfiction.

The more general pattern is: highly proactive characters make interdimensional first contact, resulting in sharing magic/technology for mutual fun and profit and social benefit. Those aren't the only template attractors (e.g., there's usually a romance subplot), but that's the basic shape of the plot.

It makes me very happy that the quote from Wikipedia here is (1) actually taken from Wikipedia and (2) taken from the 2008 version of Wikipedia, not the 2014 version!
