Alright.

Can you please if it's not too much to ask give me an example of a subplot being use?


To pull an rough outline of an example, in one of Jim Butcher's Dresden File series a supporting character, Bob the Skull, convinces the main character, Harry Dresden, to let him have a night on the town for services rendered to the main plot. While Harry continues on the main plot, Bob has his night on the town with some of the results of that night being referenced later. It informs on Bob's character, as well as Harry's thoughts and reactions to Bob's choices, and impacts how they interact later on.
