[[http://www.dragomirsdiary.com/ Dragomir's Diary]] is a five-days-a-week serial fantasy story written and illustrated by Matt Bird. Created in 2011 and still ongoing, it follows the life of Dragomir, an unwitting guard in a video game-generated castle. He strives to lead a relatively normal existence, but bad things have a way of gravitating towards him - and when he's sent on a journey to cure a plague, Dragomir discovers that he's fated for a great deal more than guarding a cupboard full of cockroaches. The plot is a combination of gag-a-day antics and ongoing epic fantasy, though Dragomir has a penchant for undermining the 'epic' part of that equation with his poor decisions and unwitting references to popular culture.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulRename: Castle ________ is so-named because its name changes at King Jeffrey's whim, usually to coincide with some storyline event. For example, [[spoiler:when Eve and Logan were set to be married,]] Jeffrey changed the name to 'Castle WeddingBells'.

* AerithandBob: Most people living in Castle _________ have English or English-sounding names. Dragomir obviously does not, even though the other members of his family - Oswald, Martha, Robert - do. Zuhwha?

* BackFromTheDead: [[spoilers:Dragomir is stabbed and killed by Eve. He is functionally dead for over a month, and is only returned to life by a save game.]]
* ElephantintheLivingRoom: Not only does Dragomir's diary smile, its expression changes regularly. It also appears to sleep, and does so in plain sight. Nobody ever remarks on these phenomena.

Added DiffLines:

* FramingDevice: The story is set within a video game. Some characters know this, others do not. The fact that it's a video game occasionally has a bearing on the plot, such as when [[spoiler:Dragomir was brought back to life, after his death at the hands of Eve, by a save game he had unknowingly made for himself months prior.]] Also a FramingDevice in that Dragomir is telling his story within the confines of a diary... ''and the device itself is a character.''
