The work has gone into print as a series of five graphic novels by Top Cow; the print versions feature remastered artwork to address a few [[OffModel inconsistencies]] in the original web versions, slightly rewritten dialogue and additional bonus content. Additionally, the 'random pictures' folder on the dA site contains pin-ups and non-canon strips that the author created in the comic's early days, such as Ally's drunken declaration of love to Lisa over one Christmas, though many of them have since been adapted or expanded upon and introduced into the main story.

''Sunstone'', that is, Lisa and Ally's story, concluded on October 27, 2016--almost five years after Sejic had uploaded the first drafts to DA.

''Mercy'' reveals her discovering her attraction to women with a band's female front singer, which she later has no trouble fantasising about.



* ExperimentedInCollege: In different respects. Lisa and Anne both mention having had same-sex experiences, while a fairly detailed sequence of strips go into how Ally and Alan met in college and experimented with types of BDSM play, gradually becoming the doms we know.

* PenName: 'Shiniez' is the alter-ego of ''ComicBook/{{Witchblade}}'' artist Stjepan Šejić, who also maintains another DA account under the name 'Nebezial'. Prior to the reveal, the author enjoyed trolling the fanbase ''way'' too much over whether they were the same person, or whether Shiniez was just a friend and student of Nebezial's due to the similar art styles.

* InvulnerableKnuckles: Averted. Ally hurts her hand quite badly punching a wall, to the point of needing a cast for much of Chapter 5. [[spoiler:She heals the injury eventually, but when trying to get a corset on for her climactic date with Lisa, she tears the ligament again, so she has to wear the cast again.]]

* MaliciousSlander: In college Alan was wrongly accused of being gay and subject to harassment because of this; things escalated when his sketchbook of BDSM artwork was discovered, stolen, photocopied and then posted around the campus. Worse still, it was one of Ally's friends who kept the gossip about Alan circulating. This is one of the reasons for Alan's cynicism about mainstream society's views of his subculture.

* MyGreatestFailure: For Ally, it's introducing Marion to shibari by essentially making Marion her sub during a class Harper was presenting. Marion became obsessed with shibari, which gradually wrecked her and Alan's relationship and eventually culminated in the aforementioned incident that nearly cost her her hands. Ally (and everyone who knows about it) realizes that it was ultimately Marion's responsibility, but Ally's never been able to shake her guilt about getting the whole thing started.

** The start of Chapter 5 has a literal version of this, as the pair text for a bit days after the fight. Lisa's convinced that the delayed responses are because Ally is coming up with lies to feed her, while the truth is that Ally's broken wrist makes texting nigh-impossible.

* SharedUniverse: As the creators of ''Sunstone'' and ''Webcomic/BloodStain'', Stjepan Sejic and Linda Sejic, are married, not only does each artist draw each other's characters, but both webcomics are set in the same world. The events of each comic are isolated from each other most of the time, except for when the four main characters meet in an in-universe MMORPG, and several non-canon illustrations. As Linda Sejic confirms in [[http://sigeel.deviantart.com/art/elly-ally-354326120 this strip]] both comics will get a real crossover event in the future.
