Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Something*Positive is a Slice of Life webcomic by Randal Keith "R.K." Milholland based on the life and trials of Davan MacIntire, a put-upon, misanthropic author stand-in, and his best friends Aubrey Chorde, Pee-Jee Shou, and Jason Pratchett, who originated as caricatures of Milholland's real-life friends. The supporting cast includes Davan's acerbic but loving family, African-American Wiccan Kim Anansie, Pee-Jee's long-time gay man-crush Jhim Midgett, "pint-sized bisexual" T-Bob, reformed obsessive geek Mike Dowden, vain waste-of-space Kharisma Valetti, and Davan's hairless, amorphous cat Choo-Choo Bear. The cast is enormous, and various members pop in and out over the years.Most of the comic's humor is incredibly dark and cynical, with glee for potential offense; few demographics have avoided skewering by the author's strawman constructs — it is remarkably fair and balanced in that approach. However, moments of sympathy sometimes rise to the surface, as the characters may be jerks (an admitted fact by Milholland himself), but they do love each other deeply, and go out of their way to help one another. Common elements include the stupidity of the common man, geek culture, tabletop gaming, and Davan's seemingly endless parade of psychotic girlfriends.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Expect a lot of Take That!. To fans of the comic (particularly stupid e-mails are almost always revealed to the fans on the comic's web page, or even in actual comics), to fans of certain shows or genres, and especially to Milholland himself, as well as his comic. It's equal-opportunity cruelty at its finest and most vulgar.The title was created when the real Aubrey told Milholland to "shut up and do something positive for once."Connects to the Walkyverse in a number of ways: Choo Choo Bear's offspring with Sprinkles have found their way into several strips, and Davan is also friends with GWS's Candy and Queen of Wands' Kestrel. Milholland has also done some guest strips for Questionable Content that may or may not be canon; Jeph Jacques isn't telling.

Tempting Fate
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_15b2cab3
comment
Tempting Fate: Kharisma... Right here. And it ties in with a Genre Savvy moment, to boot. Randy lampshades it with this comic, saying "I love that I can just have Davan and Vanessa being nice and readers begin to panic." Mike hopes that he'll be done working a fast-food job soon. When he gets to the Kwispy Burger, he discovers it's being shut down thanks to an arsonist attack. One of PeeJee's employees attempts to freak her out with a Shock Site. She doesn't react because "You've gotta work to find something to freak me out." Cue Davan accepting her challenge, giving her nightmares in the process. Not long after, Chirag encounters a customer who was dissatisfied with "Have a nice day", instead wanting to hear "Have a blessed day" - Chirag obliges in a way that makes the customer regret not accepting "nice". Jason, during the 2020 quarantine, complains about how oddly boring the real-life Sci-Fi has become.

Ripped from the Headlines: As an actor/writer of a sitcom, Monette joins the 2007 Writer's Strike. In a more comedic vein, their D&D group isn't great with social issues involved in the game. And during the quarantine, we get a list of "2020 Specific D&D classes", including: "Zoommancer", "The Recorded Bigot", "The Self-Martyr", and "The Plague Rat".

Gratuitous Spanish
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_16178c64
comment
Gratuitous Spanish: Pepito before Davan discovered that he spoke perfect English. Not only his Spanish was gratuitous, it was grammatically disastrous; Word of God says that Milholland hated Pepito as a character, so he never bothered with good Spanish for Pepito even when his readers offered to do so for him. Predictably, Milholland killed him as gruesomely as he could fathom.

Genre Savvy: Pee-Jee is. She knows that happy people proclaiming their joy are just asking for it. Similarly, during the Catgirl rampage, the group Jason and Davan find themselves in realize they wouldn't survive an actual horror movie, but it needs one more element to be complete... and then Roger pulls a (possible) Dying Declaration of Love, so the entire group gets mad at him for effectively dooming them.

Hypocritical Heartwarming
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_18f2b2b
comment
Hypocritical Heartwarming: Fred provides a decent example. And Davan has one later on, basing a villain in a musical on Fred... because Fred is the most interesting person he knows, and the villain has to be the most interesting character in the show. And Davan gets Fred again later on as payback for Fred telling him "You're the dumbest thing that ever came out of me" due to Davan's momentary Sarcasm Blindness. And Fred gets his own payback later on. Davan and Rory also have this dynamic.

Oblivious to His Own Description: Davan tells PeeJee he used to have a crush on a girl, but she didn't return the sentiment. They became really good friends and it ended up being for the best. PeeJee insults the girl for not realizing Davan's great, he replies that, no, she's one of his favorite people. He says goodbye and hangs up. PeeJee catches on and blushes.

Black Comedy
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_222dc873
comment
Black Comedy: Just how dark the humour gets varies from story to story, but the comic has no qualms about "going there" and includes Dead Baby Comedy, Undignified Deaths, Black Comedy Rape, general crushing of people's spirits and bright spots of hope and love. The first strip features an at-home abortion joke, setting the stage for things to come. Anyone who's read Something Positive has nothing to complain about: This strip is completely up-front with how offensive it is from the word go. As another example, Jason once bought Davan a sex doll as a joke gift - except the "doll" turned out to be a modified corpse. Especially, perhaps, but certainly not exclusively, as can be seen in this 2010 strip: Then there's his Halloween tradition of The Last Of The Trick-or-Treaters comics, which feature various supernatural monsters murdering trick-or-treating kids.

Magnificent Bastard
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_23015b1f
comment
The most epic (and possibly deliberate) use was Monette's baby — she had a big pregnancy storyline, and then one strip showed her sad while somebody mentioned that she "lost her baby". It was done either really clumsily, or very Magnificent Bastardly by Randy, to the point where fans re-scoured recent Archival updates to find out when the baby really died. Turns out, that was the first time it was mentioned.

The Un-Reveal: While Davan confessing his love for an as yet unrevealed person does not fully qualify for this trope, later Choo-choo Bear sets up the perfect UnReveal when the name of the person Davan called was about to be shown. Considering the time period and his then relationship status with the rest of the cast, it was most likely Branwen, though almost ten years later and Randy still hasn't named who exactly.

During the 2020 quarantine, PamJee tells her mother she's kind of sick of her face, only to be shocked that she said it back and goes to complain to Jason.

Oblivious to Love: Mike, as the Pythagorean, gets a phone number and a teasing smile about "needing help" around the house. He suggests calling a handyman. Tamara knows he's gotten around fifty of said numbers (women and men), not one of which he ever picked up on the connotation for. It gets even worse: Tamara herself gave Mike her own number four times before he got the hint she wanted to date him. Davan proves himself as such here when Cora invites him on a coffee date - he figures she just really likes coffee. His namesake wasn't much better. Gregory is completely oblivious to his co-"Liberator"'s obvious crush on him.

Lampshade Hanging: Davan's Speech Bubble is covered up for a second time when he tells PeeJee who he called at the con (see Painting the Medium below), this time by Choo-Choo Bear bursting out of his ice cream. PeeJee reasonably says that this makes no sense: After years of teasing, we finally get to see the horrors of Shazam Wil-Wheaton Dowden's face. As Silas points out, it's not that horrible. The cast list say that Kestrel "never seems to remember to fill in her last name on forms". She's the only one non-nicknamed character without a full name, because she was inherited from another author who didn't give a surname.

Perp Sweating: After Monette inadvertently cuts up some of Fred's antique comics, everyone in the family lets her know that he will be beyond angry. It instead leads to a Milholland Relationship Moment.

Made Myself Sad: The entire D&D group when playing as students in a Monster high school - they did everything right and became social pariahs, which is just depressing as real high school. After Halloween 2020, during which Fred passed away, Monette and Dahlia joke about the situation, subsequently making themselves sad.

Even Evil Has Standards: After Cab gets a girlfriend that is indirectly racist around PeeJee, she hatches a plan to not only quit her job, but do so in a way that, in her mind, will spectacularly show Cab just how racist his girlfriend is being by turning the tables. This plan apparently involves some obscenely racist stuff that Pee Jee ropes Kim into buying; and after Kim buys the stuff she (and everyone else made aware of the plan) realises that there is, unbelievably, a limit to how horrible they can be. A supervillain talked a blogger out of harming a cat beyond tying it up, saying "I'm evil but not a dick" as rationale.

Out of Focus
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_32da91b8
comment
Out of Focus: With the aforementioned Loads and Loads of Characters, this happens a lot. The occasional minor character will only appear a total of five times in six years [Davan's Furry friend Andy], and often a year goes by between Jhim or Anna's appearances, and both were once major characters (Jhim especially, once a part of the core cast). Clair, a previously major cast member, disappeared for years, and then showed up engaged and about to move away. Kim and Kestrel, major co-workers of Aubrey's and former major cast-members, also fall out of focus for six months at a time. Most of this is done to reflect on Real Life: It's (sort of) based on Milholland's experiences. People do vanish from your life only to reappear out of nowhere.

This Is Wrong on So Many Levels: Davan doesn't want to leave Choo-Choo Bear behind when he goes with Kim to Salem, so he dresses him up appropriately as "Droog-Droog Bear, A Clockwork Pussy." Apparently, Choo-Choo's a big fan of the movie.

Girl-on-Girl Is Hot: Jason has drawn Aubrey/PeeJee yuri. And just when you think his dreams have come true... And later, he learns that Aubrey had woken up next to PeeJee after a night of drinking. Naked. Also mentioned here God Himself thinks so, too. In fact, He came up with the "being gay is a sin" thing as part of a Batman Gambit to get lesbians to have sex in order to spite Him, which He gets to watch and is even notified about when it happens due to them invoking His name.

Noodle Incident: Whatever Mike did to get Tamara to leave him at that Nerdrotica Christmas Party, an unusual departure from Show, Don't Tell. And whatever happened to Davan's namesake involved a "very confused vampire hunter" and a flaming wheat thresher. Vanessa apparently has multiple incidents involving TTRPGs, including one "intentional grease fire". The reason Grant is so scared of animals is related to chinchillas and servals, but we're never told why.

Transparent Closet: A couple of cases: Lisa was never fooling her family for a second, though she thought she was and was deathly embarrassed of her orientation. Even from the time she was a kid, it was pretty blatant - as her father put it, "The nicest closets have glass doors." The minor character Chirag is both very obviously gay and very determined that it doesn't get out. He's not operating off the usual reasons, though — he thinks his parents would be a bit TOO supportive, and isn't prepared to settle down with just the one guy yet. When the truth comes out, he's proven right. Rory's attempts to ask PeeJee about her new boyfriend tip her off easily.

Adult Fear

Adult Fear: In the "Just Today" story arc, Davan's father Fred has to deal with being diagnosed with Alzheimer's. He asks his wife Faye to take the day off from work to spend time with him so he can tell her. In the end, he can't bring himself to tell her and they just spend a peaceful day together. As they go to bed for the night, she thanks him for spending the day with her and they share a goodnight kiss (the caption for this strip is "Sometimes it's about life...". The next morning, Fred realizes that Faye died in her sleep (the caption here: "Sometimes, it's about fear"). Fred's own declining health, and the impact it has on his family, is another source of this. Several comics have shown him momentarily mistaking a loved one for someone long dead (Monette for Rose, Rory for Scotty), or acknowledging his mortality and limitations. Often it's played for dark humor, but some times it's played completely straight. And then Fred suddenly dies on Halloween Night 2020 and Davan is the one who finds his body the next morning. As the rest of the cast has matured and settled down, they've had to confront subjects like financial insecurity and debt, uncertain futures in education and work, and raising children in need of advice and support. Played for Laughs when Rory uses some in the Haunted House, because "it's more effective to use people's real fears of what can't be avoided against them to get what you want." One of the reasons why Rory is afraid of coming out as pansexual is because he's fully aware that there's a lot of prejudice against LBGT+ people and that even his own friends or other people he likes could start hating him for his sexual orientation. Halloween 2020 ends with Davan finding his dad's body after the latter had stayed up late to greet Trick-Or-Treaters.

Leaning on the Fourth Wall
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_4a3e547f
comment
Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Panels 2 and 3 of this strip, where a drunk guy complains about webcomic authors, reserving his greatest vitriol for "that Milholland hack" and the predictable nature of his current storyline. (It doesn't quite turn out that way.) Pee-Jee once asked the question, "Why does everything that happens around here revolve around sex?" Davan mumbles, "Bad writing." But, like the first example, he was reading a book and muttering to himself to justify the fourth wall breakage. Multiple examples in this strip. When Jason wonders where comic characters go after their strip ends, Aubrey suggests "the background of another crappier comic", before they discuss Helen (inherited from Penny and Aggie which had just concluded) and mention Kestrel (inherited from Queen of Wands when it ended). Regarding Helen, Kim tells Aubrey that "She's well-meaning, but whenever she's around, people get really pissed for some reason." Any time she appeared in S*P, Milholland would get angry emails from P&A fans upset about how he wrote her (more than for every other crossover combined, apparently.) Aubrey says she doesn't want her business to be a "dumping ground for other people's damaged goods." This refers to the reason P&A writer T. Campbell gave Helen's character to Milholland: he felt her problems now ran too deep for his own comic's setting and characters to help her out of them. Nancy quite possibly makes one of the most subtle variations of this trope after commenting that thousands of people would be looking up Pythagoras after Mike's superhero reveal.

Death of the Author
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_4a44d616
comment
Death of the Author: invoked Referenced in the catgirls arc. This trope appears to be something of a sore spot with the author. Discussed and deconstructed In-Universe when Shazam sees that Mike is getting rid of his books written by Orson Scott Card and J. K. Rowling, as well as all related memorabilia, because he doesn't want to support those authors anymore after their homophobic and transphobic comments, despite still loving the stories they wrote. And it wasn't even the first time, though he tried striking a delicate balance.

Black Comedy Rape
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_4c851777
comment
Black Comedy Rape: Kim has a fetish for unconscious men (and yes, it is an actual thing). Which the others didn't know when they asked her to look after Davan while he was whacked out on medication, and she takes advantage of him Mike and the Redneck Trees. Initially, nothing actually happens to Mike. Deep-Immersion Gaming is a visual device, not something that actually affects the characters. It's not shown how graphically it was described to him, although based on his reaction, probably "very". Then, thanks to Davan's good memory, it was reenacted. And he was actually almost publicly sodomized by a man in a tree costume. But since he was an unsympathetic Jerkass, it was played for laughs, though PeeJee disagreed and intervened. Years later, Mike's girlfriend had one in a cyberpunk game, triggered by a request for "Root access." Then it happened again when Davan and Scotty thought Aubrey's boyfriend was cheating on her. The rejection letter Davan sends to the writer of a bad play claims that "A better title for your play would be 'Rape-Rape: A Tale of Rapening'. Also, your next play should have a little less rape in it."

Harsher in Hindsight

Harsher in Hindsight: An in-universe example. When Davan expresses mixed feelings about not being Rory's father, because the other guy wants nothing to do with him, Tamara (who had a deadbeat father) sarcastically mentions that her father was amazing as a role model for what not to be when you grow up. A few years down the road, Peejee discovers that Rory is keeping a horrible, profanity-laden letter from his biological father to remind him who he doesn't want to be when he grows up. Another one in "The Future Predicted" has Rory reading the gamebook for Cyberpunk and at first not believing that the game's version of the year 2020 having cyberjacks and running in cyberspace lined up with the real year until his mother pointed out the part about "politics, police states and corporations."

Kavorka Man: Jason. Davan also has aspects of this, on the occasions that he actually cares enough to try. For example, the first words he spoke to Branwen (whom he would later go on to date for over a year) were something along the lines of "Hey, want to go have sex?" to which she answered in the affirmative. Despite supposedly being hideous, Davan has slept with about five or six attractive women in nine years, two of them very regularly — not a bad run.

It's like we're in a comic strip, but the artist is too goddamn lazy to draw in the background like he usually does." Of course, there's a perfectly good explanation: it's in storage. In this strip, fearing he's about to killed by rampaging catgirls, Davan phones one of his friends and admits he loves them, but will deny saying it if he lives, while in the foreground:

Country Matters: Despite the Cluster F-Bomb he's rather notorious for, Randy is very antsy about this word, so far only using it twice, once when Mike (when he was still a full-blown Jerkass) is very annoyed with PeeJee, and even he stammers a bit, and once indirectly when Davan's Girl of the Week, trying to justify her cheating (by framing it as exploring an Open Relationship), asks if she's "being too blunt," and Davan replies she's "in the rhyming neighborhood." Apparently, a woman walked out of a panel discussion when he said it in Real Life.

No Bisexuals: Vanessa had to put up with this mindset from an ex-girlfriend. Rory went online to research pansexuality, running into this type of mindset coupled with Depraved Bisexual.

IntercontinuityCrossover
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_5b351f0d
comment
Intercontinuity Crossover: Many. Something Positive seems to be a sort of hub-world for webcomics. The first was with Queen of Wands, to the point where Kestrel entered S* P after Queen of Wands ended. A more in-depth explanation can be found here. There was also a crossover with Scandal Sheet. And cameo appearances by Jay from FLEM Comics, Jennie from The Devil's Panties and The Pet Professional. One comic also mentioned that Aubrey used to own a mini-lop with a fondness for sharp objects, but her mother gave it to a pet shop. Davan and Nancy also had a cameo in Questionable Content. The Teddy Bear Liberation Front also showed up in some Milholland-written Punch an' Pie guest strips. There was a crossover with Girls with Slingshots, as Davan attends the wedding of two minor characters from that strip. Choo-Choo Bear is the father of kittens with Sprinkles from GWS, one of whom has been adopted by Leslie from Shortpacked!. Don, the protagonist of Deranged, is frequently seen as a player in Davan's RPG sessions. Helen, a supporting character from Penny and Aggie, has appeared for a storyline in which she's interviewing for a job (meaning she might stay). PeeJee and Aubrey visit a shop named What's New, with Phil Foglio visible behind the desk, here. Choo-Choo Bear also met up with Eben and Snooch from Two Lumps back in the day. And two crossovers into the parallel universe of the Unshelved book club.

Pædo Hunt: Mike shared a video of a school play Aubrey was in on the internet, and ends up being pursued by the police and an angry mob. The play was The Hobbit, and Aubrey wore a nude, glittering bodystocking. Oh, and she was 13 at the time. Later, Kharisma's life is endangered after the warden at her prison started claiming she was in for child molestation, a claim Nancy Grace happily ran with for ratings. Aubrey once wrote a 'zine article entitled "Boners At Half Mast: A List of the Creepy Men at Anime Cons Who Stopped Hitting On Me Because I Turned Eighteen."

Not long after, Davan meets Mr. Sanderson, a wealthy producer who takes a liking to him and eventually offers him a job.

Not Disabled In VR: Davan introduces his family to role-playing games (specifically a superheroic one). His sister, who's a wheelchair user, spends the session describing her character dancing around.

Strawman Political: Arguably the most frequent criticism of the strip. Many a random passerby or lesser castmember has touted some weakly-held opinion that Milholland or the cast views as idiotic, and is then berated for it.

Straw Feminist: The Womyn's Front group on Anna's college campus lied to men willing to have their picture taken for a sexual safety campaign and instead used their images for a scare campaign about how any man could be a sexual predator. Agnes, though, takes the cake. Davan has to watch a play that runs with this trope as part of his job under Mr. Sanderson.

Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: By Aubrey's own admission, practically everything PamJee does runs on this trope. Her kitten fits her personality rather well. Prior to this was a one-off strip where Davan was playing an abusive father, but the kid creeped him out - mainly by being way too interested in the choking.

Real Life Writes the Plot
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_786bf97f
comment
Real Life Writes the Plot: Milholland has confirmed that at least one character has left the strip for a while for 're-tooling', as the real-life friend the character was based off of had 'betrayed' him, and he felt he couldn't write the character the same way. Spin-off strip "Midnight Macabre" was put on hold for the same reason — implying that Lisa was the character in question. The strip for March 20 2013 ends with a flashforward panel of a teenaged Rory and Nick talking at school. Unfortunately, the date given is "April 23 2020". When that date rolled around, in the middle of the Covid 19 pandemic, Randy had to establish that yes, Rory and his friends really are breaking lockdown and meeting up at the school.

What Happened to the Mouse?
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_863fa679
comment
What Happened to the Mouse?: A few subplots have been dropped over the years, as different parts of character's lives get ignored (or just not focused on). Davan and Jason were initially supposed to be producing Titus Andronicus (even auditioning for it), but it got dropped when he moved to Texas. Later strips involve a play Davan re-wrote instead. Certain subplots seem to have been dropped, only to reappear later on (such as Monette's "Big Secret" — which turned out to be her TV show, and Davan and Jason's work on Neko-Neko Holy-Chan). New character Bian was introduced, but then went several months before actually meeting any of the recurring cast. The most epic (and possibly deliberate) use was Monette's baby — she had a big pregnancy storyline, and then one strip showed her sad while somebody mentioned that she "lost her baby". It was done either really clumsily, or very Magnificent Bastardly by Randy, to the point where fans re-scoured recent Archival updates to find out when the baby really died. Turns out, that was the first time it was mentioned.

Protagonist-Centered Morality
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_89434320
comment
Protagonist-Centered Morality: From an objective point of view, the protagonists are not just as bad as many of the people the comic considers antagonists... they're worse. The majority of behaviors that are often decried in the more serious moments... emotional abuse, dishonesty, disrespect, hurling insults, assault... are things that the main characters do for fun the rest of the time. Because being rude to people in your gaming group is terrible, but convincing random children that their parents don't love them is hilarious.

Asshole Victim
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_8ed5c6e4
comment
Asshole Victim: Some, but not all include... Mike had a series of humiliations and painful encounters, which he generally brought upon himself through thoughtless, stupid and hostile behavior. Pepito acted like a jerk to everyone after he inherited Avogadro's fortune, and when he returned to the spotlight at a convention he was torn apart by rampaging catgirls because he was dressed as their favorite character. He was later seen in Hell, once again Avogadro's sex toy. Kyle repeatedly lied and cheated to one of the main cast, and when caught was beaten and hospitalised. PeeJee had a coworker who threatened to charge her with sexual harassment when PeeJee rebuffed her advances. She was suddenly eaten by a trap-door alligator that struck from the air conditioning. Kharisma was a Rich Bitch and Brainless Beauty who really pushed this with her treatment of others, then scarred her face, tried to get Avogardo's fortune and was convicted of murder, went to prison and risked being killed, was broken out (and was still at risk of death) and lives a semi-criminal life putting her through a lot of Character Development. Kharisma's quasi-boyfriend, Gregory, inflicted an ironic punishment on a fellow inmate.

This Explains So Much: Aubrey finds Rose's character sheet, and Davan points out that it likely explains his dim views on romance and relationships. A later strip shows Eva's conversation with Davan's parents, who were full of Hypocritical Heartwarming at the time. And another explain's Ollie's behavior when Davan is told that Avogadro was his uncle.

Branwen was supposed to be a brief encounter before Davan drove her away, but someone close to Randy told him "You know, you could let Davan catch a break once in a while." She was with him for about a year, her influence lasted longer, and she's remembered as "the good one" among a string of crazy and faithless romantic mistakes. (Until Vanessa appeared.)

Absent Animal Companion: Planned but then averted. Word of God says that the original plan was that Davan would (reluctantly) adopt Choo-Choo Bear, who would then disappear for years until a dark Brick Joke where they discover his corpse behind the sofa or something. Perhaps due to his popularity, he's remained a part of the cast, even though he should be pushing forty by now.

It continues with a different gay friend who also notes that Davan sets his Gaydar off something fierce, and who'd assumed that Davan's bitchiness was just due to being closeted.

comment
Benevolent Boss: Sanderson, mostly after hiring Davan to manage his theatre interests. He's a bit selfish and stubborn about his whims, but he genuinely likes Davan. Mike's boss, Eric, at the Kwispy Burger also counts — right away, he lets Mike know that nope, the customer's not always right, and minimum-wage employees still deserve at least some respect. When the restraunt is attacked by arsonists, forcing it to be closed down, Eric makes sure to give all the employees severance pay with their last paychecks (Even adding two months worth of pay to Mike's paycheck to thank him for a decade of work) and tells Mike that if he opens up another restaurant, he'll give Mike a job if he hasn't found another job by then.

 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_a4c37cbe
comment
Mood Whiplash: Heartwarming moments tarnished by thoughtlessness or brutal honesty, the funny antics that lead to a awful consequence, terrible misfortune capped with a punchline and the odd Milholland Relationship Moment. It happens fairly often. The biggest example is likely the strip after Faye's death, in which Fred quietly states that if life was unfair, it was unfair in his favor due to being Happily Married for nearly 40 years with her. Then we get the Alt Text. Chirag mourns the death of an online friend - by masturbating to every shirtless pic he'd received from him.

Enfant Terrible: The catgirls, especially in the grip of Fan Disillusionment. Jason and Aubrey's adopted daughter, Pam Jee, is also this now and then. Before she could speak complete sentences, she figured out that she could cover her teeth in hot sauce so that when she bit someone (namely, Davan) it would add to the pain. They've also determined the types of mischievous giggles she emits when she's still a toddler.

Ascended Extra: Fluffmodeus started here. Now he's a part of Kharisma's life. (The Rant below the comic reads "I am seriously tempted to put the little blue thing into the main comic unless ransom demands are met." Presumably, they were not.) Branwen was supposed to be a brief encounter before Davan drove her away, but someone close to Randy told him "You know, you could let Davan catch a break once in a while." She was with him for about a year, her influence lasted longer, and she's remembered as "the good one" among a string of crazy and faithless romantic mistakes. (Until Vanessa appeared.) Kwispie, a penguin with bacon for arms that was part of a few gag strips in 2011 became the mascot at Mike's new Burger Fool position.

Parody: Occasional parodies of long-established cartoons like Garfield. This one is kind of a cross between Garfield and Conan the Barbarian. "By Crom's beard, I HATE MONDAYS!" Disney buying Marvel (at the time this was posted, they was just planning it) leads to one of Spider-Man's big storylines recast with Disney characters: The Squeaktackular Spider-Mouse in The Night Goof Stacy Died! Google Chrome? Try Google Crom — "After installation, he broods from his throne, sitting in judgement on your every action."

Abusive Parents
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_b11ac9f5
comment
Abusive Parents: Ollie's father apparently beat him when he was a boy. This is probably why Ollie does everything in his power to honor and protect the reputation of his otherwise Evil Uncle Avogadro, who put a stop to the abuse by raising Ollie himself. Avogadro is just as abusive, just in a different way. Avogadro never beat Ollie physically, but he abused the boy emotionally and sexually. Davan theorizes that Ollie was so grateful to escape one abuse that he happily accepted another form instead. On the emotionally abusive side is Jason's father. The man is described as using his psychology skills to get under his family's skin, and Jason's anecdotes about him are pretty disturbing. Monette's biological father. Even when trying to be nice, the best he manages to achieve is trying to send her a "I never thought you would achieve anything" card. Davan's father is shown to be loving, but has his moments; apparently when Davan was six, his father tried to "mathematically prove to him that the Vietnam War was his fault" and recalls with a friend how they both tied their boys to the car's bumper when they wouldn't settle down. "They were tough sons of guns too! It was four miles before they started screaming!" Rory's biological father refused to have anything to do with his son. When Rory sent a letter to him in an attempt to reach out, the jerk responded with a letter full of profanity. Rory keeps it as a reminder of who he never wants to become when he grows up. Kharisma's parents were largely neglectful, but her question about where babies come from was answered with "Sometimes mistakes just happen". Vanessa's entire family tree is... troubled, but her father gave her birthday present to his new girlfriend's daughter as a means to impress her.

Everyone Has Standards
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_b4a6ae4c
comment
Everyone Has Standards As much of a miserable Jerkass as Mike was in the early strips, PeeJee felt compelled to intervene after seeing his disastrous "date" with Kharisma. Naturally, he called her an "interloping bitch" and ran after Kharisma. After the infamous Hell House Arc, Randy points out he actually had to censor most of what he researched about actual Hell Houses because they were too disgustingly horrible even for him. Davan runs afoul of this when his bugbear character is revealed to engage in Self-Harm as a means of stress relief. Chirag defends a guy with an awful sense of humor - until Yamile mentions how he's made fun of her prosthetic leg. And then the ass makes such a comment in front of Chirag. After the below incident, the mayor declares that "party lines be damned", and that every one of them should endorse the car-fucker to get Taylor out of office.

Take That!
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_b53077b3
comment
Take That!: Used a lot, for very many groups and fandoms — Catholics, Warhammer, old-school D&D dorks and the comic's own fans. Not to mention TV Tropes itself at least once (on Super Stupor, rather than S* P). "I was busy quoting from TV Tropes instead of forming my own opinions", in response to being accused of Black Comedy Rape by a Livejournal responder) Davan makes care packages for various comic creators - Rob Liefeld's is a razor blade with instructions, only because Davan used all the cat shit and rat poison on Joe Quesada's "Retcon Yourself" gift. And a rather long-running one against Nancy Grace. 2019 brought us PamJee's presentation of: "My bullies all make fun of me for being adopted and 'unwanted' but my parents get me vaccinated and theirs don't. Who's really unwanted? A report."

Too Dumb to Live: Several, but special mention to Kharisma, who openly bragged about a murder bet she made with Avagadro...which bites her right square in the ass when she's convicted of his murder, even though he died of natural causes.

comment
Hypocritical Humor: When in a Hell House, the "Devil" gets fed up with people being stubborn and yells "Goddammit! I am trying to show you assholes Christly love here!" Both in-character and out-of-character it's hypocritical. Davan gets one when shouting at Rory for dumping water on a witch while scared, and PeeJee points out he'd done the same to a witch in Kim's coven.

 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_be0f728

Shoo Out the New Guy: A mild example. Linzie, a tattooed goth-girl character, shows up as a female partner for Davan (they have sex periodically), and appears to be added to the cast in a semi-major manner. But then she suddenly gets an actual boyfriend and vanishes completely from the strip. Very rare, in that almost all the other characters at least have "Old Familiar Faces" comics about where they've been.

Suicide Dare: Played for Laughs.

When one of the protesters says it hurts to hear that, Davan offers him "a little something to ease the pain." It's a poster of the Rippy the Razor mascot, showing how to slit one's wrists properly.

Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_c0e3994b
comment
Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Most of the cast engages in slapstick violence regardless of sex, but the women are generally more likely to threaten violence, and more likely to commit it. Aubrey and PeeJee are both rather hot-headed and prone to impulsive violence when people anger them (especially boyfriends), or upset their friends, or when it sounds like fun. Davan makes a good punching bag when no other is available, although this alluded to in the past (Aubrey has been beating on him since their childhood). An early strip involves the two of them inviting several unsuspecting guys out to a remote location on a date, and then jumping out of hiding and beating them with baseball bats. They intended to sell the videotape of doing so as a comedy ("When Rabid Asian Girls Attack"), and the strip treats it as just some of their "wacky hijinks". To some degree, they mostly grow out of it, or at least become more controlled about it. This strip wouldn't be half as funny if the genders were reversed. (Though in a large part, because the jokes wouldn't work.)

True Companions: Davan, PeeJee, Aubrey and Jason compose the core of the circle, with something like a dozen other characters forming the periphery. Lots and lots of snarking and bitching, but they've demonstrated a willingness — nay, an eagerness — to commit felonies on behalf of one another, though they aren't above more traditional means of showing affection.

Chuck Cunningham Syndrome
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_c33ba0a8
comment
Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Happens to a fair amount of supporting characters, what with the huge cast. Some were dropped deliberately by the writer (Jennifer and Darrick, from early in the strip, when neither character panned out), while others just kind of faded away. This is dealt with fairly realistically, as people tend to just fall out of the others' lives. Milholland has written that the character of Jennifer is based on a real life person he knew. She agreed to appear as a character but she was unhappy with the way she was depicted and argued with Milholland over it. Milholland dropped Jennifer from the strip and also ended up losing contact with "Jennifer" in real life.

Nice Guy
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_c5249b29
comment
Nice Guy and Nice Guys Finish Last: Subverted heavily — a major point of Milholland's (and Davan's) is that a lot of supposed "Nice Guys" are actually self-involved, self-pitying jerks like Mike, who are actually quite selfish, and only after most girls because of their looks (something they hypocritically accuse the girls of doing with the "jerks" they go out with). Davan himself was once susceptible to this mindset, but his sister quickly set him straight. On the more sincere end of the trope, Gregory is this to Kharisma, as he's genuinely supportive and loving, to the point of breaking her out of prison and nursing her back to help. He's also a violent psychopath, but the key phrase is more sincere.

Shout-Out

Shout-Out: To Daria in this strip, where Aubrey is dressed as Daria and PeeJee is wearing a red jacket like Jane's while they talk in a graveyard. To Penny Arcade: In this strip, Davan and his father wear some possibly familiar-looking shirts and discuss Grand Theft Auto IV. The tagline on the comic reads: "This comic couldn't be a crappier rip-off of Penny Arcade if you dressed them in the same clothes!" "Oh, a challenge!" In the background is a store named "Gabe's Toys and more" with the Fruit Fucker in the window. To Phil Foglio: In this comic Aubrey and PeeJee shop in a store named "What's New," run by Phil Foglio. All of the shirts in the last panel are references either to What's New? with Phil and Dixie or Girl Genius. The eyewear PeeJee is trying on here is labelled "Goggles by Phil & Kaja — Look like a Girl Genius". Another strip had a park named after them. Reader question: what would the cast look if they were furries? Probably like the cast of VG Cats. And they would kill themselves. This strip features Nancy Grace's new book... the cover of which is a mock-up of "Saturn Devouring His Son" Hilariously inappropriate shout-out to Nineteen Eighty Four. The S*P cast depicted as the cast of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman. The Devil's Panties (by Jennie Breeden): There's a "Breeden Sisters Comix" shop in the background of one panel. There was one to Press Your Luck, of all things, where a girl that Davan slept with talked about "being happy with [him] for a long time" - and Davan promptly says, "No BABY No BABY No BABY, STOP!", whacking her stomach at the end. After a strip aimed at congratulating Penny and Aggie's authors for their full run, we get this one with a slew of other online comic characters. When Rory and his friends want to play a Dungeons And Dragons game where they're evil monsters, Davan makes them all into Hanna-Barbera versions of D&D monsters: Fred Flintstone as a cyclops, Huckleberry Hellhound, Yogi Owlbear and Boo-Boo Goblin, and Magilla Ogre.

Self-Deprecation
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_c9597a03
comment
Self-Deprecation: A major source of humour, and something that keeps Davan from being a Canon Sue at times. He's as critical of himself as anybody, probably even more so. When Davan stops being Milholland's avatar, he also stops being the ugliest thing in Boston. There are plenty of filler strips, comments below the comic and even comments within the comic where Randy mocks his appearance, his temper and his artistic, organisational and social skills. Occasional Fourth-Wall Mail Slot strips never miss an opportunity to have Choo-Choo Bear describe his creator as a lazy hack. Aubrey: "From what few cartoonists I've met, lazy seems to be a job requirement." The off-stage Choo-Choo Bear explains why the comic promotes conventions so much: A comic that's a screenshot of the previous day's comic, because "We were worried a worried a week of almost regular updates was scaring you." "Comic artists live awful lives of malnutrition in dark rooms." Before visiting a casino, Randy's sister Rhona explains to him "Mom will give you a small amount of money. Very small — since you're a cartoonist, we don't want you getting used to large bills." Filler art summing up a lecture on webcomics at MIT: "OH MY GOD! Randy Milholland's uglier than I ever dreamed!"

Disability as an Excuse for Jerkassery
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_ca3a4a31
comment
Disability as an Excuse for Jerkassery: As a young boy, Fred was admitted to a hospital for an ear infection, where he was antagonized at every turn by a boy in a wheel-chair, who used his disability as an excuse to rage at the world, and every other child at the hospital hates him. Eventually, Fred and his friends team up to scare him and teach him a lesson... whereupon it is revealed that the boy is in the hospital for a heart condition, and the shock of the scare ends up killing him.

Series Continuity Error
 Something*Positive (Webcomic) / int_ca95473c
comment
Series Continuity Error: Although Randy is exceptionally good about maintaining continuity (to the point where he will point out he did include a mention of an offscreen character three years previous when introducing them in person for the first time), he does slip up from time to time. For example, while Aubrey states they used to hide in Davan's parent's attic when they were kids later Davan claims to never have been up there.

Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Kharisma has a magical friend only she can see called Fluffmodeus. Either it's a hallucination who also voices all the survival instincts she's repressed in order to be the Brainless Beauty she feels she should be, or it's a real creature that can and does give her company, advice, warnings of danger, and sometimes bracelets made from the teeth of her enemies Davan often meets his deceased mother and other ancestors in his dreams. It's left very unclear whether or not these are really just dreams. The Catgirls from the convention seemed to develop superhuman strength and madness as they went on their rampage. They also have the ability to smell new Catgirl media.

Beyond the Impossible: During a night of playing various tabletop games, Mike manages to die in Toon, which explicitly states that characters cannot die. Avogadro complains about the lack of tortures in the "travel brochure" in Hell - and the Devil is baffled as to how Pompey keeps finding Bibles in Hell.

Loads and Loads of Characters: The main cast isn't overly large for a webcomic, but once you get to the former main supporting cast [Jhim, Kim, Monette] and the old familiar faces [Cab, Berenger, Claire, Anna, Lisa, Celie, the Teddy-Bear Liberation Front, etc.], things get a little crazy. Jesus-Mickey and Twitchy-Hug were killed, but we still frequently see characters show up with gaps of years between appearances.

Wall of Text: Sometimes quite dialogue-heavy, though it's part of the comic's charm, and the producer of some of the better strips. Let's just say that Milholland really likes his characters with Backstory and assumes the readers are smart enough to handle a few big speech bubbles. Here is a example, headed by the warning for those "frightened or intimidated by reading."

Write Who You Know

comment
Write Who You Know: Most of the main characters, and some of the secondary cast, are based on Milholland's friends and family. Davan is based on Milholland himself as he was several years earlier, and Aubrey is based on Clarine Harp, now a fairly well-known anime voice actress. Milholland has explained that various other characters are based off of "combinations" of people he knew. Specifically, Eva was based off of two separate people (one nice girl, one a basket case), as was Mike (one got better from his misogynistic whiny geek phase, the other got worse). In-universe, Davan based the villain of a play he re-wrote off of his dad, justifying it as needing the villain to be the most interesting person in the play. Also in-universe, Monette's sitcom character is a Gender Flipped Davan. PeeJee asks Davan how it feels to know that someone else has achieved success by being him.

From the Mouths of Babes: When Jason plays Santa. And again, after Davan receives "The Talk"... as a kindergartner, due to his finding a copy of Our Bodies Our Selves. Rory often says things like this, such as... Thinking "Get lucky" means a girl will let you touch her pot of gold. Asking what a climax is... because he'd heard about a guy hanging himself to achieve his. Fred even treats Davan to a glass of "Your Old Man's Been Waiting Thirty Years For This Revenge". Talking about learning the "hyman" maneuver - thankfully he'd meant to say Heimlich. But the punchline veers back into this. Promising Davan that he'd "act like an adult" if Davan takes him to a Haunted House. Sanderson fails to heed Davan's advice about swearing in front of Rory, earning him and Rory a time-out. Rory wants his mom, Davan, Vanessa, and PeeJee to all be a family - and since he considers PeeJee the best of the bunch, he'd like his mom to "be lesbians" with her and get married. Donna is overjoyed at having such a humiliating story to add to the scrapbook. We get a very literal version when a girl wants Rory to take her on a date, and since neither of them have money, she asks how much the Tooth Fairy leaves him. Rory is ecstatic at hearing Vanessa and Davan are getting married, because he wants a little sister - and is also convinced that "all the girl juice is in the left ball". Vanessa agrees if Rory is present for each birth, which he's convinced is Clean, Pretty Childbirth.

Composite Character: A few members of the cast are based off of more than one person Milholland has met, merged into one being. Lisa and Monette in particular, as well as Mike and Eva (both of whom were based off of one good person, and one bad one — with the characters branching into one or the other).

The "Fun" in "Funeral": Two examples in short succession, as Davan starts berating his best friend, Scotty over committing suicide after a bad breakup - or rather, not talking to Davan about how he was feeling. This leads Davan to consider how he wants his own funeral to be, deciding on a martini party where his body would be posed for pictures and then thrown into a bonfire, with Aubrey getting his skull so he can always be with her. Another comes after Avogadro's death, in which Kharisma is wearing a fanservice outfit, and Mr. Sanderson pooped in Avogadro's casket to pay his Last Disrespects.

People were flinging rape and death threats at each other in the comments section of a picture for a cupcake.

Brain Bleach: Low-rent strippers. "Take me home so I can claw my eyes out in privacy, please." "I'm not sure her psyche was prepared for the horror that is role-playing geeks" "Leave us in our secret shame and sin!"◊''. Jhim tries desperately in to invoke it: "Must fight visual! Must... fight... visual!" More experiences in strip clubs, but it only gets bad at this point. (The next comic's tag reads "Reaction to yesterday's reveal — Men: "Meh?", Women: "[[I will fucking kill you, Randy!") Kegel balls and Pokémon, "You're not allowed to talk any more. Like, ever.". Lipstick, nipple rings and Popeye. Makes you scream "Milholland!" Monette inflicts this on Gaspar by quipping that his daughter also came out of her.

Exact Words: When Davan's boss makes a request, Davan makes it happen. Prior to this, Davan takes advantage of Aubrey's Clingy Jealous Guy's Freak Out to casually inform him that he'd seen Aubrey naked many times, and even offers to show him pictures, prompting the guy to run out of the bar cursing her and her friends. Vanessa's father pulls this when saying that his marriages ended because someone cheats. Vanessa is told "I'm not saying you should dress up like you would for a wedding, but it wouldn't hurt" - the poor fool didn't realize how she'd dressed for her own wedding.

The Talk: Sanderson gives it to Rory while staying over as a guest. Hilarity Ensues when Rory realizes why his mom thought at one point that Davan might be his dad. And it only gets better from there. Davan had to give another one when Rory asks about his Raging Stiffie, which goes well... and then Rory asks about masturbation. Davan, years later, starts to give Rory an "official" one, to their mutual discomfort. Subverted in the next strip, which explains that this version is about the responsibilities sexual activity comes with, rather than the actual mechanics of it, enlisting Vanessa's aid to ease the awkwardness. It culminates in a four hour talk.

Groin Attack: Jason suffers one whilst being a mall Santa, at the hands (or tap shoe-clad feet) of a little girl. Jason mentions that Aubrey had a habit of stamping in the crotch of mall Easter Bunnies as a kid. Rory gives one to a haunted house worker (dressed as a chainsaw murderer a la Leatherface) trying to stop him running away. Said worker didn't change out of his costume before the pursuit and had recently had a vasectomy. Blood ensued. After deciding that he really doesn't want any siblings after all, Rory inflicts a brutal one upon Davan. To Davan's credit, he doesn't say a word, but does turn a worrying shade of lilac. Rory wasn't the only one. PamJee wants a sibling, so being mindful of what her parents told her about making babies, she attempts to reverse Jason's vasectomy... with a *stapler*. The ensuing pain isn't explicitly seen, but she's quick to get him lap ice.

Geeky Turn-On: Tamara's method of reassuring Mike after she gets a birth control implant is to point out that she's technically a cyborg now.

Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Jason tries talking to a theater owner about needing fake blood for a show, but only gets so far as saying "we need to use a lot of blood for this show" before Hank steps in and asks "Do you prefer pig, hooker, or one month old orphan?"

Identical Stranger: In the 'Strip Club of the Damned' storyline, all the patrons there are somehow horrified by an aspect of the club. While it's not entirely clear what they see, all the strippers who Davan's introduced to are incredibly similar to his exes, so much that he even calls Ivy 'Rose' by mistake.

Insult Backfire: For example, this one. Mike gets one after his Character Development when one of his former friends berates him and tells him they no longer think he's cool. Mike gets another one when telling the new leader of ConGoblin that he reminds Mike of how he used to be like, which he perceives as a compliment. Mike takes it as an indication that they'd never met before.

Brick Joke: While most of the annual "Old Familiar Faces" strips have this in some manner (e.g. a teen that constantly used the word "gay" becoming a Gay-For-Pay pornstar), this one takes a joke that hadn't been used since the first strip and runs with it. Prior to that, this strip serves as one to this one. The man Rory uppercut to the groin? He started wearing a cup, which came in VERY handy when an adult kicked him in the crotch with steel-toed boots.

comment
Pet the Dog: Kharisma for one, prior to character development when she worked with Davan in Medicaid billing. Most of the time on screen she spent being entirely self-absorbed, unfeeling, but when she left she had a moment where she was actually, intentionally, nice to Davan telling him to quit the job for his own good. Interestingly, for a group of self-centered cynics, Davan and company seem surprisingly prone to charitable behavior (usually towards people who either haven't done them any actual wrong, or who are too outright pathetic to justify kicking around, but still).
