    That was purely based on who was in the top 10 posters, and could've been 10 females or 0 I did notice it at the time and thought it was funny though. I also strongly disagree with Jinx's assessments!
    Rosa the wife/mother (in TAY), Porom the child, Rydia the whore

    It fits XD

    Also, it's an actual trope!
    It's 100% a thing. You can also sub out maiden and crone, but it for sure works.
    But hey, you know me. I'll never pass up a chance to call Freya a whore. :^)

    (inb4 she colberts me)
    How am I just seeing you all call me this, you hooligans. All of you are banned.

    Quistis and Freya are "just there for the T&A"? That's the "archetype" you'd assign to them?
    Quistis hangs around because she wants to get into some edgy seventeen year old's pants.

    Freya ... poor girl just wants her lover to remember her again.... she also wants to fight for Burmecia and see it recover.

    They are completely different characters.

    Iím not sure Quina would appreciate the fact youíre trying to confine him/her into the gender binary

    Quina is technically genderless, right? If that's the case then I don't think Quina counts into this.

    Technically labeling their gender as him/her is also confining them inside the gender binary!

    I believe they use s/he and his/her, not she/he.

    That said, s/he is still inside the gender binary! There's nothing wrong with being part of the gender binary!

    But if youíre both parts of the binary, is it still a binary to you?

    By the very definition of "both" and "binary", yes, yes it is.

    But ... binary is one or the other. One and the other makes a third option of both
