* ArmorPiercingQuestion: During a game of Truth or Dare at Jo's bar, Lilian ask Roomie if she'd ever fallen in love. Roomie goes through roughly ten minutes (or [[WebcomicTime several strips]], whichever) of avoiding the question with her usual hippy "I love everything" routine before Lilian cuts through the bullshit:

''Go Get A Roomie'' is a comedic webcomic centered around the wacky hijinx of the eponymous [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Roomie]] and her friends. These mainly consist of a gaggle of girls whom she [[ReallyGetsAround has slept with as payment for letting her sleep over at their place]] -- thus her nickname. Other recurring cast members include her favorite bartender, fraternal twins named Richard and Ramona (a sub and a dom, respectively), and Matt, a rather confused vanilla guy who can only look on in mild horror at her lifestyle. Soon she meets the introverted, [[{{Sleepyhead}} nigh-perpetually-slumbering]] Lillian, or "Lazy Tyke" as Roomie affectionately dubs her, who is far more at home in her dreamscapes and imagination than in the waking world. Lillian, who loves sleep but is utterly unconcerned with the idea of sleeping ''with'' anyone, is perhaps the one person who has no designs upon Roomie -- and, of course, Roomie becomes fascinated with her. Despite LT's halfhearted protestations, Roomie ends up becoming her steady roommate -- and just as unusual for the restless Roomie as this extended period of consistent lodging, is the break in her pattern of omni-amorous unattachment. What follows is a romance of sorts as they grow closer together, and a study of the character features and flaws which have resulted in their deeply unique, and often heartwarming, personalities.

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: While Roomie - promiscuous, usually drunk, and [[GoodBadGirl teasing everyone]] - and Lillian - solitary, sheltered, and emotionless - fit the roles of the trope, the trope itself is in equal parts downplayed, deconstructed, and ''inverted''. Neither Lillian nor Roomie is shown as really ''happy'' with their role, and both end up changing their lives after making friends with the other.
