* BrokenBase: Some readers find it frustrating that the comic manages to go on and on when many arcs seldom ever receive any sort of satisfying closure. Characters frequently get [[MomentKiller cock-blocked]] and miss their goals by a hair through [[ContrivedCoincidence unbelievably bad luck]], which is only exacerbated by [[{{Farce}} all the awkward misunderstandings that arise when nobody bothers to communicate what they really mean to the people who need to hear it.]] Other readers would say that this is all par for the course in this genre, but those who don't like it are left screaming "JUST FUCK ALREADY" at their screens whenever someone who's been desperately trying to score with someone else [[YankTheDogsChain gets their chance snatched away by whatever "zany the antics" the rest of the cast is up to that day.]] The 2016/17 "Pro Wrestling" arc also caused some ''debate'' among the fans; see, e.g., [[http://www.pixietrixcomix.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16946 this thread.]]

* EvilIsSexy: Most characters in this comic are good-looking and get a bit morally unreliable at times, but Senna, who is probably the most flagrantly amoral recurrent character, in a petty sort of way, also happens to be the one with an international modelling career. Matt, who's just a bit of a jerk, seems to have slightly less spectacular success as a model, but still rates high for looks.

* EnsembleDarkHorse: Junghan is really popular among the fanbase. During his long absence, people kept wondering if he'll ever come back and how he's the best character of the comic. Since his return, each of his appearances (including a brief but entertaining cameo in ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'') is welcomed with much rejoicing. Most people acknowledge that he's a better character if he doesn't get too much focus, though.

** "Gary's Giving James a Blowjob" arc is widely panned by fans, who accuse its story of being [[PlotInducedStupidity insultingly stupid]] even by the comic's standards. For context: When Tracy asks Gary, a grown, patently heterosexual man despite everything else he's been through, to give her boyfriend a blowjob, Gary simply can't find the nerve to say No to Tracy's face. What follows is then a story of a grown man trying to fake a blowjob while keeping an appearance of friendly guy to his coworkers. Also, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the punchline isn't all that funny.]]

** The wrestling plotline of 2016-17 started with a focus [=DiDi=], never the comic's most nuanced major character, suddenly getting involved with a whole bunch of new secondary characters. Then, as it developed, it began to lean heavily on the appearance of yet more new characters, all of them {{expies}} of characters from the authors' other comics, ''Webcomic/EerieCuties'' and ''Webcomic/MagickChicks'', giving the whole thing the look of an over-stretched in-joke. Meanwhile, Zii, a major character with a lot of dangling plot threads and personality issues attached, had been invisible for many months, real-world time. Some fan grumbling ensued.

* IdiotPlot: While a lot of the storylines depend on the fact that few of the characters are terribly bright, the sequence in 2016 where Tracy seeks to involve Gary in one of her camgirl performances without him knowing turns this UpToEleven, as it depends on her stupidly not just asking the obliging Gary for help, Gary stupidly falling for her contorted justifications, and the onlooking Jim likewise stupidly believing everything he hears.

** In issue #441, Yuki and Sonja fight over Gary and ask which of the two he wants. Gary, being Gary, says [[GirlOnGirlIsHot he wants both of them]], and he receives a ''double DeathGlare''. Fast forward to issue #1200, over ''five years later'', and he actually ''does'' get both women in bed at the same time, but not entirely how he expected.

** And talking of Matt -- is he a bit of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, or just a {{Jerkass}} who [[PetTheDog pets the nearest dog]] fairly frequently? That depends how far you think his better moments compensate for his bad behavior.
