    Citing the performance hierarchy from "Family Guy": legitimate theatre, musical theatre, stand-up, ventriloquism, magic, mime.

    Is there an associated hierarchy for literature? Music?

    Wrong. The answer is Ionian.

    If this is performance arts, shouldn't opera and modern dance be there somewhere? If musical theatre is there, surely so should other hybrids.

    You'll have to ask the guy who wrote that episode of the family guy.

    There is a scale for literature, but no one can agree if fantasy fiction is at the top or the bottom.

    fantasy fiction?!?!?! at the top?!?!?!?!?!?!?! 😲

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA 😵

    Dude, you really crack me.

    The debate actually is if fantasy fiction is in the bottom next to religious pamphlets or in the 2nd worst.

    i suppose Homer's Oddysey is an example of fantasy literature of a high order, and there are other classical examples, but the modern dungeons and dragons stuff? well, i haven't come across any. i think writers who want to write about 'serious' themes, and actually have something new to say, just avoid the genre. maybe there's just something inherently non-serious about writing about dragons and things in this day and age.
