In case you don't know, in Homestuck, all SBURB/SGRUB players are graced with a "title." Examples include "Seer of Light," "Knight of Blood," and "Witch of Space." These titles are made up of the format "(CLASS) of (ASPECT)." Discounting the master classes, with 12 known classes and 12 known aspects, 144 total title combinations are possible.
At the time of writing, our knowledge of Homestuck's Class and Aspect system is pretty cloudy. There are multiple theories and fan ideas about it, and until Andrew Hussie graces us with more concrete explanations, we're left guessing. This title generation method is steeped in the only reliable information we have: canon characters, their titles, and their characteristics. My friend Ryan and I spent a lot of time analyzing the characters and how they related to their titles. We cross-referenced their commonalities and made this test with the information we gleaned. It is my hope that the test, staying true to the canon characters, stays true to how Classes and Aspects truly work.
A bit of fan-inspired guesswork is incorporated as well. Homestuck titles contain gender-exclusive classes, and since the canon information we have on this is incomplete, I will adhere to the W/Sy+Mg/Se theory's assumptions in this respect.
This part is fairly simple. Read the following descriptions and pick the one that most describes yourself. The boxes are color-coded for any-gender, male-only, and female-only. It is likely that you will not be able to fit perfectly into any box; just go with the box that you most strongly relate to in light of a realistic evaluation of your own personality. Take note of your CLASS NUMBER labelled CN1, CN2, ect, and write it down for later.
If you are unsure about what box to choose, it is acceptable to ask for a close friend's help.

Calculating your aspect is more time-consuming, so be sure to set aside 10-20 minutes for this section. Below are 12 numbered ASPECT BOXES and 12 DRAGGABLE aspect tiles. PLEASE READ OR USE THIS CHART because it's helpful to know a fuller description of every aspect before you begin.
If you cannot drag the aspect tiles around (ie you're on a phone or other incompatible browser), then make a list of the questions and write your answers down. Just remember, there are 12 questions and 12 aspects, so each aspect should be used at least once, and there should be no duplicate answers.
Feel free to take your time. Some aspects might fit in multiple boxes, but shuffling is likely necessary and there should only be 1 aspect in each box by the time you're done! So shuffle the aspects around until they ALL fit. If you are ever in severe doubt, go with your gut feeling. But try to make your answers as accurate as you possibly can.
|1. Which aspect do you scorn publicly?
||2. Which aspect have you both accepted and rejected?
||3. Which aspect do you deserve to have but unfairly don't have?
|4. Which aspect would be on the cover of your biography?
||5. Which aspect do you feel you have the most potential in mastering?
||6. Which aspect are you most familiar with?
|7. Which aspect seems to chase you?
||8. Which aspect do you always find yourself running from?
||9. Which aspect is important in your personal code?
|10. Which aspect do you respect reverently from afar?
||11. Which aspect do you pursue the most?
||12. Which aspect do you pursue in secret?
Use this table to determine what your class is. Simply find your CLASS NUMBER in the table below. The class next to it is your very own!!
You will need your class (calculated above) to find your aspect. Simply find the row with your class and it will tell you which ASPECT BOX answer to use.

Please look at THIS (fan-inspired) CHEAT SHEET to decode your powers and abilities! Remember, the cheat sheet only gives you a guideline, and it's not necessarily accurate. I encourage you to really use your imagination to come up with something neat!!!
I hope you enjoyed!

How can I contact you?
The best way to reach me is on deviantART, my username is thezules, but you can also reach me by my tumblr askboxes: jzu (normal blog) and tyeplikeroxy (homestuck blog)! I also regularly check the MSPA forums, so you can message me there under my screenname Zules.
I disagree with your analysis of the classpect system! Will you hear me out?
If you disagree with my decision to adhere to W/Sy+Mg/Se (Witch-Sylph & Mage-Seer pairing) or if you disagree with my gender assignments, please do not bother contacting me as we could debate all day on something like that. I don't see myself changing that unless there is more canon exposition on classpects that contradicts my assumptions.
However, if you have input on the other parts of the test, such as the way I decided to characterize the classes or the questions I used in the aspect portion, I will be happy to hear from you as long as you stay friendly and cooperative. :)
Can't I just figure out my Class, then go to the aspect box that corresponds and answer that question only?
Yes you can, and nobody's stopping you. However, doing the full method and fitting every aspect in each square is preferable for two reasons:
1. You don't subconsciously disregard the single question and choose your favorite aspect
2. To give every aspect, even the less popular ones, a chance
I'm unhappy with my title! I don't think it fits me at all; are you sure your test is accurate?
I'm supremely confident in the ability of my test to determine a realistic title for everyone. Remember, sometimes characters in the story get titles that they aren't comfortable with so that they can be challanged and so that they can expand their potential (the Page of Breath, anyone? How about our dear Seer of Light?). Also, if you are a Prince or a Bard, remember that you are a DESTROYER and therefore it's probably a good thing if you don't like your aspect.
But try your title on for size for a few days. It might take a while to get used to, but I'm sure it'll grow on you!
