So I have been tearing my hair out for a while over a conundrum/paradox/whatever. While I pretty much agree with Boots’ inversion theory, Hussie officially placed the classes on a line, with the most active a female class and the two most passive male classes. Some of you may remember "this hilarious chart," but it doesn’t really look like a line. A while ago I figured out a theoretical way the two could be combined nicely, but it didn’t really work and after something like two hours of bashing my brains out I gave up. I figured out a way it could possibly (possibly) work, so without further ado:
First, we have to ignore the chart above and flip Heir and Sylph. I used to be a staunch believer of Maid/Heir Witch/Sylph, but I’m not really sure anymore. Whatever, it has to be like that for this to work, at least as far as I have been able to tell. The new chart looks like this:
Unfortunately, the keywords all go to hell and I’m way too lazy to come up with new ones that work. Anyways, I next order the active/passive pairs on an approximate scale from active to passive, with opposite keywords on opposite ends. I’m not going to write up all the assumptions I have to make, but Steal ends up being the most active keyword, and whatever Knights/Pages have is the most passive keyword. Destroy is the second most active keyword, with whatever maids/heirs do as the second most passive. Know (Mage/Seer) and the Witch/Sylph keyword (change/alter still works?) end up in the middle:
Next, we divide them into active and passive, and put the passive on top, giving us this:
This has the two most passive classes male, the most active class female. But even more importantly, it maintains both the Active/Passive duality, shown in purple, where the most active active class would switch to the most active passive class, and the inversion duality in green, where the most active class becomes the most passive class.
Hell, I just noticed that, from passive to active, Heir, Bard, Rogue, Page, Sylph, Seer, Mage, Maid, Knight, Thief, Prince, Witch works if the purple is inversion and the green is active/passive, which is just as good, if not better.
Anyways, either one of those combinations not only follows Andrew’s line scheme, but also provides an easy way to find both the active/passive duality, and the class to which they would invert!
Edit: Also, if the aspects were on some sort of line, you could make a cool grid.
