'''Creamsicle''' is an [[MemeticMutation internet meme]] that began life on Website/{{tumblr}} in May 2012, and spawned an enormous {{fandom}} literally overnight. It started off when tumblr user beekkake made a drawing poking fun at stereotypes about girls who use tumblr and Website/{{Facebook}}. Another user made FanArt of the two girls kissing, which led to numerous jokes about {{Shipping}} them together, with the [[IdiosyncraticShipNaming Idiosyncratic Ship Name]] of "Creamsicle". Less than a week later, there were ''hundreds'' of {{fanfic}}s, [[FanArt art, comics]], and even {{Filk Song}}s based on Creamsicle, as well as SpinOff characters. Most of this stuff can be found '''[[http://fuckyeahcreamsicle.tumblr.com/fycdirectory here]]'''.

The two characters are referred to as Snowflake and Sunglasses or [[GratuitousJapanese Normal-chan and Other Girl-sempai]] (or simply Normal and Other).
----
!!Creamsicle provides examples of:
* AffectionateParody: The entirety of the Creamsicle fandom is arguably a big fat meta-parody of itself and of fandom in general.
* BetaCouple: Prep and Emo.
* BoobsAndButtPose: Done [[CrowningMomentOfFunny spectacularly]] by Sunglasses in [[http://foervraengd.tumblr.com/post/22679591276/aaaaand-heres-the-last-page-for-tonight-thank this comic]].
* BrainyBrunette: Snowflake.
* Sandbox/CasualNudity: Sunglasses, if you see the black stripe as being a censor bar.
* CoolShades: Sunglasses, [[MeaningfulName of course]].
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Sunglasses.
* DependingOnTheArtist: Is the black stripe around Sunglasses's chest a bra, a censor bar, or a very small shirt? What are their eye colors?
* DependingOnTheWriter: Since there is no official {{canon}}, Sunglasses and Snowflake's characterizations may vary depending on who's writing them. Their basic personalities don't change much (Sunglasses is a sexy party girl, Snowflake is a nerd who writes fanfiction), but any details beyond that are entirely up to the writer.
* DumbBlonde: Sunglasses (when she isn't shown to have HiddenDepths, anyway).
* EmoTeen: One of the spin-off characters, the aptly named Emo.
* GagBoobs: Sunglasses has them.
* GeodesicCast: Many of the spin-off characters are basically variations of Sunglasses and Snowflake, but parodying different stereotypes. For example, [[http://fuckyeahcreamsicle.tumblr.com/tagged/Fudgesicle Prep and Emo]], or [[http://fuckyeahcreamsicle.tumblr.com/tagged/NuttyBuddy Lady K and Shibuyah]].
* GratuitousJapanese: Snowflake, Sunglasses, and the various spin-off characters are often referred to with JapaneseHonorifics.
* {{Fanon}}: Again, there is no official {{canon}}, so pretty much every fanfic written about them is based entirely on fanon. [[invoked]]
* HairContrastDuo: Three guesses who (and the first two don't count).
* HimeCut: [[http://fuckyeahcreamsicle.tumblr.com/post/27900340510/source-i-dont-know-it-reminded-me-of-how Good Anime Fan]] has this hairstyle.
* {{Hipster}}: Snowflake.
* IconicOutfit:
** Sunglasses's black [[BuffySpeak chest-stripe-thingy]], tiny shorts, and... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin sunglasses]].
** Snowflake's purple shirt and jeans.
* MoeAnthropomorphism: [[http://foervraengd.tumblr.com/post/22667082687/page-4-of-the-in-official-comic-creamsicle-im Princess Fandom-chan and Captain Shipping-chan]] are anthropomorphic personifications of {{fandom}} and {{shipping}}, respectively.
* OfficialCouple: Sunglasses and Snowflake, obviously.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Depending on [[DependingOntheWriter whose fanfic you're reading]], Sunglasses and Snowflake are either examples of this trope, or [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep their names really are Sunglasses and Snowflake]].
* OppositesAttract: The entire point of the pairing, and most of the spin-off pairings as well.
* PortmanteauCoupleName: Well, [[CaptainObvious yeah]]. [[invoked]]
* ProudToBeAGeek: Snowflake.
* PublicDomainCharacter
* RuleSixtyThree: Sunglasses and Snowflake have been drawn as men [[http://fuckyeahcreamsicle.tumblr.com/tagged/genderbend on more than one occasion]].
* SelfDeprecation: Snowflake embodies almost every stereotype about fanfic writers who use Website/{{tumblr}}. Most of the people who write stories and make art about her are fanfic writers who use tumblr.
* {{Seme}} & {{Uke}}: Lots of FanArt shows Snowflake as the uke to Sunglasses's seme. Usually PlayedForLaughs.
* SoapboxSadie: Snowflake.
* SpecialSnowflakeSyndrome: Snowflake's name alludes to this.
* StealthParody: The original drawing was supposed to be a parody of self-righteous {{hipster}}s. [[PoesLaw A lot of people didn't get the joke]].
* StopBeingStereotypical:
** [[http://fuckyeahcreamsicle.tumblr.com/tagged/being-an-anime-fan Good Anime Fan and Bad Anime Fan]], with Bad Anime Fan representing the [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy weeaboo]] stereotype.
** Also, [[http://foervraengd.tumblr.com/post/22656735862/page-3-of-creamsicle-comic-is-done-im-still Ally the Social Justice Knight's evil twin, Social Justice Sally]].
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Sunglasses's outfit.
* TanLines: Sunglasses has them.
* {{Tsundere}}: A common portrayal of Snowflake.
* YaoiFangirl:
** Snowflake writes SlashFic.
** One of the spin-off characters, Bad Anime Fan. She even wears a shirt that says "Yaoi."
* YuriFan: It's not uncommon to see Snowflake as one of these.
