Can anything have a franchise?

What are the limits of a franchise? TV shows and movies traditionally have franchises, but what about basic things like atoms, or questions, or personal interests?

Yeah sure… why not :smiley:

Shelly, my question to you is, can you have a franchise, can you have a saga.

I think the ultimate question is if anything in reality can be a story - can the history of any atom be made into a franchise, no different to Star Wars?

Got an interesting choice of a saga…The shelly and trixie saga…
