Added DiffLines:

* BrainyBrunette: Elliot majored in chemistry and will mention it in casual discussion. However, her braininess also comes with a consuming self-doubt and anxiety that disconnects her from the real world.


Added DiffLines:

* MasculineLinesFeminineCurves: The art style uses a mix of angles and curves for characters, but some of the character's traits are still demonstrate a downplayed version of this trope. For instance, Elliot is drawn with rounded cheeks and curly hair, while Dr. Stein has sharp cheekbones and angular 'bramble' as hair.


Added DiffLines:

* SkilledButNaive: Elliot might be a college graduate, but her utter lack of attention comes at odds with her ability to retain a job. ''Blood Stain'' shows how she eventually breaks this cycle.

* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: The trope does not exactly fit, but Elliot simply can't hold onto a job that requires focus, which, essentially, means all of the ones she applies to.

* YouDidntAsk: Elliot initially looks for an autoclave on her own in Dr. Stein's basement, figuring that doing so will show that she is a responsible person (in contrast to her bumbling behavior in previous jobs). However, after spending a few pages searching with no avail, she hesitantly asks Dr. Stein where the autoclave is; she is surprised to find that Dr. Stein just nonchalantly throws out its location instead of criticizing her absentmindedness.

Added DiffLines:

* ConfirmedBachelor: Serge helpfully clears up for Elliot that Dr. Stein is unmarried, in case she had any plans (she didn't).

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Sigeel loves ribbing her readers with images of Elliot and Dr. Stein with each other, both canonically and out-of-canon.

* GoodAngelBadAngel: Sigeel portrays Elliot's conflicting thoughts in a scrapped take of page 70 as a "passionate voice", "doubt voice", and "reasonable voice" as mini-Elliots dressed in different costumes on her shouders.

* InfiniteCanvas: Each 'page' is a long, horizontal stretch of panels, some almost fifty long. However, this is not true of the PDF versions of the chapters, which breaks up the "pages" into more traditionally-sized ones.
