Some people have been expressing some confusion regarding certain relationships in the story (particularly in regards to Emily and Maria), so I decided to make a little chart to explain the important relationships. It's crazy convoluted, so this is probably as simplistic as I can make it. Sorry for that. Hopefully, it's at least semi decipherable.
All information here has been established somewhere within the 677 story pages currently available online (as of this writing). If you don't remember where, I'll be happy drop some links. Do be aware that anything could change at the drop of a hat too, and for all we know this could be dated by the time p.678 goes up (I don't think it actually will in this case, but hypothetically speaking).
And yes, there are other characters in the story, but I'm just focusing on the ones you should be aware of (mostly in the school setting).
UPDATE - Thank you for your reminders of all the things left off the chart. Most of which I am aware of, but left off for one of a few reasons:
1. I assume the reader knows already
2. I didn't think a it was as relevant anymore
3. I really couldn't fit it because two characters are miles away from each other on the chart
I do not claim this to be a perfect or complete list of relationships. Just some reminders of things I deemed important (and in some cases, thought some might forget).
Pretty easy to follow, at least for me
Is it weird that I ship Father Quentin and Brother Arthur?
@SHIPLORD: Yes, but don't sweat it.
@SHIPLORD: Nope! I ship it too! XD *high five*
Quick someone start a Fanfic with Randy going out with both Debbie and Rob :P
wait wait...Kellen used to be engaged to Chase???
I don't remember reading that @_@ I think i missed it somewhere,,,
It was mentioned quite a while ago, so in fairness, I'm sure a lot of people forgot:
Puddle is pet of Rain but nothing returned? Puddle would be sad to hear that : /
Also would think a lot more arrows going to puddle like "Finds cute", "completely adores" and "wishes was his/her 's pet"
Wouldn't have surprised me if Puddle -> Fara "bit finger once when not fed enough with rain away"
Also Ana to Gavin would have suspected something even if enjoys company more than average...
It's not perfect, I know. There's definitely still a lot not accounted for. I think this is okay for now though. You've got the really important things here.
@LittleLynn84: Yeah I was mostly joking around :p
Seems pretty decent at least for the basics / starting point without any unofficial shippings :p
I do not remember Alison for the life of me...
Technically, she's never directly appeared outside of being talked about, and one flashback, but she does get mentioned enough for me to think she's worth including. See these pages:
Wasn't it Fara that kissed Heather when they were drunk? Not Jessica? I've read through Rain like three times...I'm pretty sure it was Fara cause Kylie took pictures of them which where promptly deleted :P
Regardless, I love this chart ^.^ It isn't hard to follow at all :P
Yes. Fara and Heather did drunken kiss each other. But much more recently, Jessica did the same while intoxicated. ^_^
I opted out of Fara and Heather's drunken kiss because I didn't think it was as relevant since it was so long ago with nothing ever coming from it (also because they're nowhere near each other on the chart). :P
Feeling a little dumb for this. Is the reason for Kylie being in purple rather than pink or blue representative of being true gender neutral?
I ask as it seems that you have all other characters coloured as they normally present, (using the old assumption Pink = fem, Blue = mas)
@Damoinion: Kylie is Gender Fluid and sometimes goes toward male and other times goes toward female. so..... blue + pink = purple...
I suspect she doesn't quite completely fit one way or the other. so a true purple...
What Steph said. Blue is used here for those who identify as male, and pink is for those who identify as female. Kylie identifies as both (albeit at separate times), so I used purple. ^_^
Thanks for that. My bad phrasing actually, I meant gender fluid in my head, came out inaccurate in my attempt to clarify.
Wait, when did Kylie show boobs to Gavin? That's the only bit I don't remember.
It fairness, it was some time ago.
Maybe it's just my fuzzy memory, but didn't Maria once have a crush on Rain? Or is that too old to be relevant on the chart?
She did. She still kinda does, despite happily being in a relationship. That's actually one of the few things I accidentally left off the chart. I've been considering going back and adding Maria's "lingering one-sided crush" on Rain to it.
Looks more like a graphic from a science class.
I love this graph a lot. I'm a real sucker for graphical presentation of information as well as story structure, so this is right in my alley.
Randy really needs to get in a relationship. I'm sure there is a nice boy or girl somewhere in our cast :)
