My novel has a plot say... a band of sorcerers are summoned for help by a remote town infested by a mysterious creature (later discovered to be a werewolf). The story details are... During the course of inspection by the sorcerers, the Mayor's daughter charms one of the sorcerers and eventually tricks to believe her father is the creature leading him to murder her father. Then she plays innocent before the townsfolk and gets him caught for the murder an has him burned at stake.
This is just a very small part of my story and is similar to the story in a music video, just there are monks in the video instead of sorcerers and the girl 'seduces' one of them and has him murder both her parents as they are hindrance to their love, and she has him burned at stake.
Will this cause me problems?Also to mention, the motives for the murder are totally different... In my book it is because the girl's father is a suspected werewolf, and in the video it is because he is a hindrance to their love. Can i continue working on my novel under this assurance? Also, the story happens to be from a music video a friend came across and informed me, and not from another author's literary creation... Can this be overlooked under the context of "scenes a faire" as such story-lines are common and a necessity of the genre. Please advice! Thanks and regards!
