Episode One Hundred And Eighteen – The Winter of our Discotheque

Episode 118 - The Winter Of Our Discotheque

Genre-themed Librarians battle the forces of evil. Quietly.

A venue shared between the Summer & Winter Courts of Faerie transitions from a generations-long reign of summer into an unexpected winter primacy.

A nightclub which serves as a refuge from the dark.

Plucky clubbers work together to save their beloved nightclub, without 100% understanding the backstory as to why it’s being sold.

Strange happenings at the all-ages venue need to be investigated, even though that place is totally lame. Also, that super-hot new kid might be there.

Is there a space for a Meddling Kids vs. Criminals game where harming the kids is simply not done, and the surprisingly ethical mobsters instead use social pressures to keep the little brats in line?

    TV Tropes calls it “Saving the Orphanage.” https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SavingTheOrphanage

    When the “save the whatever” plotline came up, my thoughts went swiftly to a pair of parodies: Weird Al showcase UHF (save the independent TV station) and The Blues Brothers (which actually is about saving an orphanage).

      It’s so ubiquitous it was weirdly hard to think of examples. Many the more recent examples seem to twists or subverted. An ascended cliche?
