I suppose it depends on the actual placement of the throughlines in the domains.
You could have it upside down, technically, if you switch the throughlines. You’re still in Progress - Doing - Being - Preconscious, but saying something else.
Maybe it’s inside out of happy-joy-joy: “Oh, great! (sarcastically)”
Hopeful vs Hopes dashed because of the judgment Bad.
Silence of the Lamb and Cloudy_with a Chance of Meatballs
Both have the same placement of domain and throughline, and both Progress upper right quad.
One is bad dark broody, hopes dashed; one is good, thoughtful, upbeat
Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs has deep themes: Worry, Knowledge, Wisdom, Threat with success good
Silence of the Lambs has Confidence, Thought, Enlightenment, Security–which seem less heavy but with success bad
Looking at the Progress stories sorted (on Subtext) by Judgment, and compared with the MC/IC/RS in Progress, I don’t get a lightweight feel on that quad. I get “thoughtful”: Hope is on the line.
And if that’s the case, my Progress story is in that quad. Hope on the line. This is what is common between Meatballs and Lambs.
In itself, Progress is dealing with the sliding scale, and a person’s perspective for which direction it will/should move. I don’t think we can say that every story out there deals with hope. Sure, people have hope, but the tension inside the “evolution” flavor is hopes and dreams. (Which makes sense All Benchmarks will be in the “losses/gains striving” bottom-left domain).
