Book referenceEdit

When is the book ever referenced as a book? From what I can tell, only the character Jekyll and his alter ego, Mr. Hyde are referenced. If this book was seen somewhere (such as Alexandria Books), please add it. Otherwise, this page should be split into a fictional character page for Jekyll, and an alias/fictional character page for Hyde. --LauraCC (talk) 16:29, August 9, 2016 (UTC)

I refer you to the former "Wright Brothers" page. That term was never used (to my knowledge, not even in an okudagram), but both brothers were mentioned separately, so they got separate pages.

Jekyll is mentioned once in the same breath as Hyde, and Hyde is mentioned one additional time. --LauraCC (talk) 15:51, August 10, 2016 (UTC)

This character, and his alter ego, are only referenced in relation to the story they are from. The Wright Brothers are "real", and actually real, people, and not the same person. If you want to create redirects for the categories, go ahead, but this page should not be split up based on the rationale presented. - Archduk3 00:58, December 24, 2016 (UTC)

Would the redirect pages be named:

  • "Doctor Jekyll"/"Jekyll"
  • "Mister Hyde"/"Hyde" --LauraCC (talk) 14:50, December 24, 2016 (UTC)
I think it should be turned into one or two pages on the character(s). Jonah isn't merged into Bible just because he was only referred to in relation to the story he is from. This is the norm for for fictional characters that are mentioned, I can't think of any examples where they were handled like Archduk3 says it should be. And besides, having an article on a book that wasn't mentioned is in itself problematic at worse, and inelegant at best. -- Capricorn (talk) 17:47, December 24, 2016 (UTC)
I would say that Jonah should be merged into the Bible, or at least something similar to the metaphor page, if not that, since these references aren't really about the characters, but the analogy. If you're looking for a parallel with something, we don't have a page for the sabot wearing workers from 400 years ago, at least not one I'm aware of, but we do have one for the point, which was the shoes. The point here is the story these characters are in. That said, pages don't get titles, so no Dr. or Mr. - Archduk3 16:59, December 30, 2016 (UTC)

Now we do. :) --LauraCC (talk) 15:57, December 31, 2016 (UTC)
