*** Elaborated on by a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orzt8yvY8W4&feature=youtu.be Deathany's Mailbox]] video, which explained that with more of the fantasy elements moved into cyberspace (e.g. Deathany's unicorn avatar), the "real life" fantasy elements have been de-emphasized. The Moat Monster still exists, but in the form of a human with green hair.

* TheUnsmile: Fi breaks from her usual dour demeanor [[http://onthefastrack.com/comics/november-20-2014/ here]]. By ContrivedCoincidence, she and Dethany hear the sound of glass breaking at the same moment.
* UnsoundEffect: Autocorrect's dictionary doesn't include sound effects like "pow," so her fight with a computer worm was accompanied by verbs like "pummel."

* Crossover: Frequently with ''ComicStrip/SafeHavens'' (see SharedUniverse below). One noteworthy crossover in the early 2000s involved Rose Trellis and Jeanine Argus running for political office simultaneously, with scenes taking place in sequence in both comics.

* BigLittleBrother: Rusty eventually got taller and heftier than Patina.



* SharedUniverse: With ''ComicStrip/SafeHavens''. ''Havens''' main character, Samantha, has a standing job offer from Rose (for whom Samantha's father works). Patina now attends the college that Samantha works at, staying in the dorm she's RA for.

Added DiffLines:

* BumblingDad: Art at times.


Added DiffLines:

** His girlfriend Melody has been even more out of focus.
** The Moat Monster as well, but for a different reason: The cartoonist wants to move away from some of the more bizarre elements that may distract readers who came for other things.


Added DiffLines:

** Perhaps a better, if earlier, example is Art. He started the comic as a JerkAss, but for decades, his defining attributes have been laziness and technical ineptitude.

* DeggansRule: Followed. Ada, Donald, Samantha, and Guy are all Black, and it never matters to the characters.

Added DiffLines:

* MotorMouth: Fi's assistant. She chose him specifically to [[GrumpyBear drive everyone else away from her office]].
* TheNameless: Fi has yet to identify her assistant by name. Maybe she never quite caught it in his flash flood of words.


Added DiffLines:

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