* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: Alice [[ZigZaggingTrope jumps all over the place on this]]. Her girls are well-fed and making more money (both for her and themselves) than ever, but she also engages in child prostitution, and got her position by hiring a man to kill her predecessor's husband, and taking over when she broke down. She also employs children [[spoiler:as snipers]].

* CrapsackWorld: Most definitely. Even the most sympathetic characters are still remorseless killers who have done terrible things.

The comic has four lengthy chapters, and concluded on October 2, 2013. Cayless took the comic's website down in early 2014, citing the cost of maintaining it, but mentioned that a PDF version might be made available at some point in the future. A sequel to ''Chimneyspeak'' was mentioned as being in the works but it's not certain if this is still the case. A prequel involving JackTheRipper and featuring Elgie and Alice near the start of their relationship is in the development stage. Cayless originally put character designs for the new series[[note]]most of which are very NSFW[[/note]] and some early pages on his Tumblr, but has since created a separate Tumblr devoted to its development.

* IgnoreTheFanservice: This comes up both in the original comic and the prequel. Elgie's been around Alice and the Working Girls so much that nothing about their attire (or lack thereof) or what they do in their "work" fazes him, and he appears to be similarly unmoved by seeing Chelsea in the altogether.



* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: This happens to several people over the course of the comic, but the most significant instance happens in ch. 4, when [[spoiler:Chelsea]] puts a claymore all the way through [[spoiler:Angus]]. Shortly after, since [[spoiler:Angus]] has a sword blade sticking out of his chest but is still upright, [[spoiler:Bonnie]] kicks him in the back. [[spoiler:Chelsea, who has moved around in front of him, gets skewered, apparently through the heart, which ''finally'' kills her]].

[[spoiler:Chelsea, who has moved around in front of him, gets skewered, apparently through the heart, which ''finally'' kills her]].



* KilledOffscreen: [[spoiler:Chelsea and her parents]], based on the fallout from strip 44 and strips 54 and 55 of ch.4. [[spoiler:The mask-wearing man is wearing Mr. Grinn's coat and carrying his sword]], and cooks up a plot to squat in [[spoiler:the Grinn's mansion]]. His cohorts also mention doing a good job with the graves.

* NamesToRunAwayFrom/NotoriousKillers: Elgie is referred to by the surname of "Mr. Ripper" early on in the series, and [[CanonImmigrant the story from which he originated]] connected him to the Jack the Ripper murders. [[spoiler:The author's commentary places this story as [[CanonDiscontinuity non-canon]] to ''Chimneyspeak'']]. Alice confirms in the third chapter that [[spoiler:Elgie killed Jack the Ripper]].

The prequel will, in part, revolve around Jack the Ripper tangling with Alice and Elgie.

** "Suka" means "bitch" in Russian (in both the "dog" and "not-nice-behavior" senses), and also something like "traitor" or "informer" in Russian prison-speak. [[spoiler:Alice kills Suka and the comic ends without revealing if the latter is meaningful.]]
