* AlternateContinuity: The older more random comics have a slightly different story then the newer ones. Older comics get taken down or absorbed into the main story depending how they fit in the new canon.
** A big difference would be Ally and Alan's break up and living arrangements.
** WordOfGod has stated that Ally, Lisa's and Anne's relationship will be different from what it was when the comic was just random pictures.

random, stylistically different, and Alan's break up and living arrangements.
** WordOfGod has stated that Ally, Lisa's and Anne's relationship will be different from what it was when the comic was just random pictures.
[[SafeSaneAndConsensual a bit....unsafe.]] They're mostly fetish pinups, with a few plottier moments(like Ally's noncanon AnguishedDeclarationOfLove). See EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.



* BetaCouple: Alan and Anne are this in finale of the first arc, although WordOfGod confirms they will be the focus of the second arc. Tom and Cassie qualify as this much more neatly.

* FanDisservice: Ally on the second volume's cover. She's wearing nothing but a bra and leather pants, brandishing a coil of rope, but the effect is somewhat ruined by her [[DullEyesOfUnhappiness glassy eyes]] and mascara-streaked cheeks. A milder case than most, but still unsettling.



** It's been briefly mentioned in a spat Lisa had with an unliked co-worker, who she believed would be the extremely judgmental type... after she walks off, the readers get to see that co-worker with her girlfriend.

The work has gone into into print as a series of graphic novels by Top Cow, with the first four of the planned five published to date; the print versions feature remastered artwork to address a few [[OffModel inconsistencies]] in the original web versions, slightly rewritten dialogue and additional bonus content. Also, as ''Sunstone'' is hosted on Website/DeviantArt, note that you must have a DA account and set the content filter to 'Mature' in order to read it, due to the frequent (if relatively mild) NSFW content.

* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: In an alternate strip [[note]]integrated into cannon as a discarded story idea by Lisa[[/note]], the first time Ally tells Lisa she loves her, she's drunk as a post. The anguished part comes when Ally wakes up hungover and straightjacketed, and Lisa gently teases her for it before returning her affection. The actual continuity has Lisa instead makes the declaration.

* ComingOutStory: One major story element is that neither Ally nor Lisa considered themselved to be gay or bi before meeting each other, and have to come to terms with their mutual attraction along with their roles in the D/s part of their relationship. Ally eventually admits it to Alan ("I'm... gay." "Like a rainbow unicorn.") and a future strip teases at how Lisa will eventually introduce her girlfriend to her family.

** In an as-yet future strip, Ally takes both Lisa and Anne to Blizz Con, with her [[WorldOfWarcraft dressed as a Blood Elf and them dressed as Draenai]]. Also results in a JizzInMyPants moment to some unfortunate nerd that commented on GirlOnGirlIsHot... who is then treated to some ''very'' lurid details of this by Anne.

** James is a more straightforward example, being a crossdressing sub who Marion ends up with.



* EmbarrassingNickname: Lisa is yet to enjoy any of her older brother Mike's names for her. The ones we hear are Betty, short for Elizabeth, which is ''not'' Lisa's name, and Lassie in reference to her BDSM collar (which, if it wasn't for Mike's ignorance to the collar's significance would be down right ''offensive'')

** 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 typing nigh-impossible.

Additionally, the 'random pictures' folder contains pin-ups and strips of uncertain continuity 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. As Sunstone's story is drawing closer to its end, Sejic has announced that he plans on doing three spin-off comics; one will focus on Alan and Anne, one will focus on Marion, and a third future comic will tie them all up. Metaphorically speaking.
