Added DiffLines:

* SourSupporter: For all her unfriendliness, Fi does help Dethany in some big ways, including lending a temporary home.

* {{Meganekko}}: Patina Welding, already was one as a toddler, and still is as an 18-year-old.
* MenaceDecay: Percy doesn't cause as much trouble as he used to. In fact, he's pretty much done a HeelFaceTurn, never cast as an outright antagonist anymore.

''On the Fastrack'' is a comic strip by [[ComicStrip/SafeHavens Bill]] [[Webcomic/KevinAndKell Holbrook]], launched by Creator/KingFeaturesSyndicate in 1984. Its tech-centered humor is set in the offices of Fastrack, Inc., a company that stores all the world's data. For most of its run, it has starred Wendy Welding, the executive assistant of the CEO and the person who actually keeps things running. Nowadays, more time is given to Dethany Dendrobia, the corporate goth.

* GoodIsNotNice [=/=] WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Percy and Thrip don't like to admit it, but they attack technology in order to inspire humans to make it better. They have occasionally attempted drastic measures like dropping a heavy computer on an engineer.]] Another example could be Fistula Breech.

* MillenniumBug: Percy was introduced as "The Year 2000 Bug," equipped with [[TheGrimReaper an hourglass and a scythe]]. After the TurnOfTheMillennium, he usually went by "the Bug," until he divulged that the ancients called him Perseus. (He initially [[FailOSuckyname objected to the nickname Percy]], but it's grown on him.)
