* PromiseMeYouWontX: When last seen in the year 2032, [[http://scarygoround.com/?date=20171221 Future-Scout Jones had just extracted a promise from her stepmother and defense lawyer, Shelley, not to get mad at what Scout was about to say.]] We donít know what followed, but as Scout was, or should have been, about to confess to illegally [[TimeTravel travelling through time]] in order to [[StableTimeLoop attempt repeatedly]] to prevent Shelley from marrying Tim, ''mostly by trying to murder Shelley,'' even the good-hearted and {{weirdness|Magnet}}-hardened Shelley may have had a little difficulty keeping to the letter of that promise.

** Given [[http://scarygoround.com/sgr/ar.php?date=20080922 this comic]], it's safe to assume that Tim has been firmly put on a bus to Wales (though he does show up [[http://scarygoround.com/sgr/ar.php?date=20090604 later]] to drive the girls home from their {{Atlantis}} misadventures.)
** At the end of one run of the comic, Shelley leaves for London and a job at the Ministry Of History, probably so that she won't cause trouble in ''Webcomic/BadMachinery''. This was originally intended to set up a new comic, ''Destroy History'', where Shelley would roam through time causing and fixing trouble, but then Allison decided to retire Shelley instead. Then he changed his mind and gave her a few standalone stories, and has even run at least a few ''Destroy History'' strips. Then Scary Ho Round came back.
** In a more meta example, John Allison has stated that Desmond Fishman and Carrot are [[http://sgrblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/state-of-onion-2010.html retired from his comics.]] Though Desmond has shown up since.

* OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs: In [[http://scarygoround.com/sgr/ar.php?date=20060905 this scene]], Shelley encounters obsessive fans of herself. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny It gets quite awkward]], especially when the guy named Harry starts to read out loud PurpleProse Shelley-fanfiction. (It sounds ambiguously erotic and involves ''MagicTheGathering''...) Shelley later comments that she has "looked terror square in its single, milky eye!"
** Impressively, though the {{fanfic}} excerpt is only about twenty-five words long, it hits the notes of PurpleProse, HotterAndSexier, and {{Fanservice}}.

* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: More like ''Well'' Disguised Pilot! The final chapter serves basically as ''Chapter -1'' for ''Webcomic/BadMachinery''. See also FullyAbsorbedFinale.

** In one of the most literal examples possible, Erin and Crowley are PutOnABus when they're sucked into Hell. Not only is Erin sucked into Hell, her very memory is RetGone from everyone who knows her, so ''no rescue attempts'' will be made. Brr... In ''Webcomic/BadMachinery'' TheBusCameBack, but still no one remembers her. Allison subsequently wrote a story about Erin breaking out of Hell; it is two pages long and awesome, and involves her becoming ruler of Hell along the way. (Crowley, on the other hand, just gets eaten.) Then, in a rather brutal Scary-Go-Round story, Erin surrenders her mortal life to save her mortal sort-of boyfriend, returning to rule Hell, although she can still occasionally visit her sister, who now remembers her. Then her boyfriend gets himself killed anyway. Yes, for the supreme ruler of a whole paranormal realm, Erin is a bit of a ButtMonkey.

* StableTimeLoop: The Bobbinsverse has various forms of time travel, which sometimes but not always generate stable loops. Notably, the "Hard Yards" storyline in 2017 involved a massive {{Retcon}}, according to which, much of the history of the comic was probably generated by [[spoiler:a {{time travel}}ling Scout Jones attempting to prevent the break-up of her parents' marriage and the births of her half-sisters -- [[YouCantFightFate and actually ''causing'' many of the events involved]]]].
