Added DiffLines:

* TheMerch: Characters will sport a new funny slogan or t-shirt in a few strips, then Jeph will talk about it in his Info post, then it will show up in the Merchandise section. Doing a massive Archive Crawl, you could see this six or seven times in a short span. It ain't called the "Questionable T-Shirt Factory" for nothing.

Added DiffLines:

* CantTakeCriticism: Jeph literally got drunk and stabbed his hand over it, though to be fair, he had a lot of other stresses in his life that lead up to this event, and the criticism was just the final straw.
** To a lesser degree, Jeph seems to detest when fans analyze or speculate over the direction the comic's narrative is taking.

* TrollingCreator: Long story short, Jeph Jacques has ''fun'' with shippers - so much, it was a tradition in the past to have "surprise kisses on friday", because there wouldn't be update between fridays and mondays. When asked about one StoryArc designed to piss off shippers in particular, [[WordOfGod his response]] was "See my entire comic". ShipSinking is a common occurrence in the comic, but in Jacques' defense, breakups for real-life twenty-somethings can be just as sudden, so this trait makes the comic actually kind of realistic. That said, as mentioned elsewhere in other subpages, ShipTease can truly reach epically ridiculous proportions, the epitome of which would be the early 2013 StoryArc where Marten, right after Claire revealed herself to be [[spoiler: transgender]], started to share a lot of screentime with her all of a sudden, going as far as asking her to accompany him to his father's wedding. The [[TheRant commentary]] for [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2405 this strip]] outright says "I am trolling you guys pretty hard".
** TeasingCreator: After being asked one too many times about where Steve has been, Jeph gives us [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2407 this.]]

* ArtistDisillusionment: Jeph generally likes his fans, but he hates his discussion forum due to its tendencies towards SeriousBusiness and Shipping. At one point it got so bad that he openly threatened to delete the whole forum should people keep posting that kind of stuff. He has considerably softened up since then.

** To be specific, a group of people on the website Tumblr got mad him for not drawing Marigold "fat enough" in a swimsuit, so he got drunk and stabbed his own hand. Many suspect the almost immediate reveal of [[spoiler:Claire being transgender]] after this incident to be his way of sucking up to them in order to get back in their good books.
