The Semi-Official QC Relationship Chart
« on: 26 Apr 2020, 03:32 »

Jeph has retweeted the attached image on his Twitter feed.


(by Peter Ravn Rasmussen)

I hope that everyone else found this as fascinating as I do (and Jeph does, apparently). Anybody think that he missed anything?

Missed items: link from Pintsize to literally everyone, including looping bac to himself, labelled “trolling” also Pintsize’s unnamed pink crush/ex-boyfriend is missing along with the rest of the robo-cafe crew, Corpse Witch, Punchbot, Seven, Crushbot, and quite a few more of the robot cast.

I don't see Jones.

I do like that the arrows are directional or multi-directional where applicable.

EDIT: Did anyone else forgot about Meena, Peter, Ellen, and/or Dave?

I feel like there ought to be some sort of line between Faye and Dora, even if I'm not sure what exactly it should say.

Wait, do you think Nelson could be Pintsize’s ex? We never did get his name…

Unlikely, but possible.

Didn't Ellen used to live with Natasha?  (At least to the extent anyone could live with Natasha.)

It really makes me sad to see that Emily only gets the one line.  Connecting her to Claire would save me tissues.

I can see this,  with the modifications mentioned,(and possibly more),  offered up on Topaco.

Interesting to see the "Former Crush" only go one way from Marten to Faye?

I thought it was mutual?

I think that there's a degree of 'in the eye of the beholder' in that particular element of this.

You could interpret Faye's behaviour as teasing but that she never let things get too far because, in the end, she knew that The Talk would have to happen sooner or later (and she wanted it to happen later). Not necessarily a praiseworthy or mature action. However, one that would have been very human on her part. Personally, I agree with you but I'm not the guy making the relationship web, am I? :-P

For me, I think that the chart needs more work done in terms of Emily. "Weird but genuine friend' between Claire and Emily and between Marten and Emily. Emily is friends with everyone, I think; however, the reciprocal isn't always true but I think it is particularly notable in these cases.

I think some quite important relationships are left out simply to prevent the chart becoming too messed up with crossing lines.  This leaves some people apparently isolated.  For instance, where is the "band" relationship between Marten, Amir and Hanners?

This will need to be updated to a 3D rendered molecular model if you want everything all in one place.
It would be a cool VR visualization but a whole lot of work and limited audience.

More practically a series of  relationship overlays for the characters.
Base layer - characters - this will be the greatest logistics challenge
Toggled overlays - colour keyed arrows to class of relationship

I remember doing something like this in autocad eons ago and a friend converted that onto Flash (ugh) to make it usable to everyone without an autocad file display app.

Plus a line from Sam to Faye labelled Mentor/Idol or something to that affect. Hard to fit into it in a flat chart without crossing over or looping around a bunch.

That could be an icon like the locations. Affiliation?
