The main character is an arts student at Miskatonic University named David Bartlett, [[TheWoobie whose life sucks]]. One evening he comes home to find his dorm-mates performing some sort of cultish ritual. HilarityEnsues, if you find [[FateWorseThanDeath the cult's hideous demise]] and getting kissed by an EldritchAbomination to be [[BloodyHilarious hilarious]].

** ...especially when you're asking an elder god with very little understanding of humans, let alone human metaphors and euphemisms. When Nancy is summoned, she grants wishes to bystanders, but lethally misinterprets them. A cultist who wants to start a new Columbine shooting hallucinates one (only he's getting shot at instead of doing the shooting) and when he's killed, a lethal bullet wound appears in his head. One wishing that his brain was bigger (smarter) has his head swell to a fatally large size. One wishes for some killer sex, and gets what she asked for, if not what she wanted.

** On the other hand, [[spoiler:the author has said on his blog that it's going to have "a Lovecraft ending." This might mean an optimistic one like ''The Dunwich Horror'' or the good ending of ''{{Eversion}}'', or it might mean a typical one with Dave and/or a bunch of other humans winding up dead/insane/transmogrified.(Besides, did he say ''who'' gets the Lovecraftian ending?)]] If so, the warm-and-fuzzy-ish beginning just makes things worse. [[spoiler:Since it's based on ''DeltaGreen'', Earth is still doomed, but Dave and friends might not go mad, suicidal or primordial either.]]

* NoodleIncident: The grey goose drill. It's also a ShoutOut to a Delta Green scenario involving an old nuclear power plant, a terrorism drill, and a Hound of Tindalos.

''[[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/ Ow, my sanity]]'' is a webcomic by Adam J. Thaxton. It's a [[CosmicHorrorStory Lovecraftian]] MagicalGirlfriend {{Deconstruction}}, or [[http://mr-author.deviantart.com/journal/25233601/ as the author put it]], "stabbing the magical girlfriend genre with a rusty chainsaw". In other words, ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' [[XMeetsY meets]] Creator/HPLovecraft.

* GasLeakCoverup: As Dave [[GenreSavvy immediately]] [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100218.html predicted]], this is [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100421.html used]] to [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100504.html cover up]] the deaths of the cultists.

** Nancy later on realizes she can't Bubble Collapse a Shogoth. She then [[spoiler:changes it into a HumanoidAbomination so that Dave can use his usual thing on her.]]
* GetOut: Delivered [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100826.html here.]]



* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Nancy is bound to David until she understands what his wish was.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Not David but [[spoiler:Delta Green thinks they're dealing with a Cult Leader that sacrificed his cult to bind a EldritchAbomination]]. They're about half right.

* BedmateReveal: On the part of the author to the audience, when David casually tells Shubbie that Nancy kisses differently than she does. This is the first hint that David and Nancy's romance has progressed that far.

This is the first hint that David and Nancy's romance has progressed that far.far (although possibly it was just a callback to [[AMagicContractComesWithAKiss their first kiss]] combined with a bit of deductive reasoning).
