* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Owing to the Landon of very early chapters having a slight resemblance to his 2007 incarnation (though less cringey), his making light of the term "gay" in front of people as someone in the closet had the potential to be explored, though it's possible that by the time the series began to GrowTheBeard, the author wanted to avoid AVerySpecialEpisode.

** As for Landon, in the 2007 incarnation he's more-so of a BookDumb PluckyComicRelief than his ObfuscatingStupidity reboot counterpart, though both suck at putting effort into school projects. More significantly, in the 2007 incarnation he's very prone to acting bratty, calling Julian "gay" as a means to insult him for liking a romance novel, and using the term frivolously as a joke. Unlike previous plot points, early chapters of the 2010 incarnation contain [[TheArtifact remnants]] of Landon's behavior in 2007 incarnation in a lighter (less cringe-worthy) tone, [[GrowingTheBeard but these are eventually phased out]], with Landon turning out openly BiTheWay.

* TheArtifact: Landon's brattier personality from the 2007 incarnation--being the type to make light of and using as an insult the term "gay"--is initially carried over in a much more subdued fashion to the 2010 and onward reboot (ridding of his ArmouredClosetGay phobic reactions), but becomes obsolete after about a dozen chapters as the revamped series GrowsTheBeard and Landon's character becomes more firmly established.

** Most drastically, instead of the short of stature chubby {{Tsundere}} we come to know and love in the longer-running 2010 incarnation, Julian in the 2007 incarnation is taller, thinner, more conventional {{Bishonen}} (of a sort) with a deadpan personality that seems to react to Landon's existence and pestering with a FlatWhat more often than not. While Landon and Isaiah look more alike, some significant overhauls center around them as well, as seen under CharacterizationMarchesOn.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: It becomes well-established that Landon is open about his sexuality and interest in men as well as women, which makes how easily he'd do things like call Julian "gay" for being the type to visit the library in very early chapters seem jarring, as he'd be more the type to make jokes about flirting with a male librarian instead after a dozen chapters or so. This is due the reboot originally carrying over a very subdued version of 2007!Landon's personality, before GrowingTheBeard and developing Landon into the bi [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Dork with a Heart of Gold]] we know and love today.

* ArtEvolution: Inevitably a great deal between the 2007 incarnation and the 2010 and onward reboot incarnation, although the reboot itself takes large leaps between chapter 1 to 10, not to even touch its quality by 20. Not only does the art style assume a much more cartoonish look while at the same time maintaining better proportions and related improvements, the characters are slightly different in look and personality as well.
