* ChangelingFantasy: Kinda-sorta. Michelle's father was apparently a sphinx himself, but she was unaware of this, and [[IJustWantToBeNormal just wants to be normal]] instead of embracing the fantastic weirdness she's been thrown into.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: After setting up the main plot line in Missouri, the comic spent nearly three years on the Exchanges arc, a story set in Liverpool before Orientations takes place. Exchanges served to explain many setting details, providing an example of more "normal" interaction between mythical creatures in the mythical society, but only shared one character with the Orientations cast. While it was an entertaining SliceOfLife story, it also left many fans wondering when the story would return to the Missouri-based conflict.
** Since Exchanges has finished, the comic has alternated between funny short stories in both Missouri and Liverpool and arc-centered stories about the length of one of the chapters that make up Orientations and Exchanges. The author has said to expect this rhythm to become the norm for the comic.
