Does Supernatural Have a Problem with Representation and Diversity: A Mathematical Study

At the end of season 12, another fan favorite minority character, Eileen, was killed. This has come in a long line of favorite SPN characters who were people of color, women, lgbt+, and/or disabled being killed seemingly before their time. This, like other instances with such characters like Kevin and Charlie, sparked outrage from many fans. Some called the move sexist and ableist. Many said it was not inherently bad that Eileen died, but the way it was done was disgraceful and unworthy of such a beloved character. Other fans fought back against these claims, citing that everyone dies in supernatural and that no one should be immune. Besides, others said, with more representation, shouldn’t that mean more death?

But is there actually more representation? And is the death count equal? Are we being persuaded by biases and personal agendas?

After the season 12 finale, I’ve set out to see if there is a quantifiable difference in representation, huge differences that can be backed up by numbers and not just perception. Much of this is going to cover gender and race, as those are the easiest diversity angles to notice, but I will touch upon other areas. This information was not compiled to confirm any set of biases, but instead answer these questions at the heart of the debate and anger. Some of the information complied is quite obvious, but having set numbers is vital in these debates.

The rest, which is a lot, is under the cut:

Do you have a female spectrum? Can you please please do one for Hermione, Ginny, Luna, Pansy, and Daphne?

I like to think my female characters are too complex to be measured in any linear way, but I did come up with this handy illustrated guide:

Where the X axis is the level of sanity and the Y axis is the extent of their confidence. As you can see in this expert chart of mathematical and artistic brilliance, Pansy is extremely sane and extremely insecure, while Luna is extremely confident and also completely bananas.


Some More Notes on Shape

The below examples and graphs are for all artists to remember–this applies to background design, prop design, package design, painting, as well as logo and character design. This is important to remember when thumbnailing a character. Everything should reinforce your message for instant readability, especially shape.

Where do you think the Marauders & Mulciber & Avery & Snape would be, on the male character spectrum?

James is on the far left of Charming Rogue (not quite as far as Harry, he’s got a little asshole in him too) and Darian is far to the right of Charming Asshole (much further than Draco). The others don’t apply because, as I should have specified in the first place, this is a means by which I chart the qualities of my romantic heroes, so none of the others technically fall into that category

In honor of Homestuck drawing to a close, I thought I might update the graphs I did 3 years ago about what Homestuck fandom looked like over on Archive of Our Own.  The first few graphs (completion, ratings, etc) turned out very similar, so I just did comparison versions for the figures that changed significantly.

Dave Strider remains a fandom favorite and doesn’t stop from getting higher.  The John/Dave pairing made it through on top for the long haul. Meanwhile, over the past few years Dave/Karkat has risen through the ranks from rarepair to fanon fave to canon.  Rosemary remains the unsinkable ship. <3

Awww I’m feeling all nostalgic now.

annnnd I’ve put the clean 2016 versions of the top 10 character and pairings graphs under the cut in case you don’t want to wrestle through the comparison versions.

this upd8 made me figure something out about quadrants

it’s gonna probably get rambly and complicated and include positive and negative discussion on multiple ships [but honestly i really don’t know any other way to describe my thought process with how i came to this conclusion???] so please bear with me and don’t take it personally, at the end of the day this is just my opinion and you don’t have to agree with everything.

A month later Cinnamon was working on a school project with Juniper after school. She leaned in close so as not to be overheard “is your brother dating anyone?”

“Not that I’m aware of” Juniper mumbled only half listening. She wanted to finish this chapter before turning her attention to the project. It was difficult to keep the characters straight. It seemed that the author had given each character five or six names. She was almost tempted to graph the characters out so that she could keep track of who was who. She spent most of her time trying to figure who was who and getting nothing out of the book.

“You wouldn’t mind if I asked him out” Cinnamon persisted.

“What?” Juni asked lifting her face from the book “ask who out?”

“Your brother” the girl hissed letting her irritation show “haven’t you been listening?”

I was looking over your posts about ao3 stats for homestuck (they're really cool!) and I was wondering how did you gather the raw data? Is it mostly manually looking stuff up and recording it or is there a reasonable way to automate it? I kind of wanted to make a chart of a bunch of ships but I'm not sure if there's a good way to extract all of the info I want from ao3

I did it hella manually. There might be a way to automate it, but I don’t know it!

@toastystats @theorigamiphoenix, thoughts?

For me it was a lotta searches and data entry– it started out just doing shipping graphs by character and I was putting out a couple week or something? I think the first one was enough months before the last one that I actually went back and re-updated the numbers.

One thing I’d recommend is digging out the info on how to do fancy custom searches. There’s definitely more utility in the AO3 search filters than is obvious.
