leads and supporting players

GA
this relates back to sticky characters
a Supporting or a Lead could be equally sticky

"...the Leads are the ones with the most screen time, for whatever reeason."

Screen Time could be due to character controversy, people connections, character concept, execution of spotlight, or combinations. When characters easily 'clump together' and have 'sticky strands' even while apart, they get more screen time.

"So we could give various PCs explicit screen time and 'lead time' just by crossing through 'their' threads heavily. Thinking, for example, day two and Julian being a central character all day.

This would mean lots of threads with Julian, the hunt, and Arden events."

So again, it is a communal (meta) sense of character that leads to sticky play?
