->"''[[GirlOnGirlIsHot We like our ladies to go les]]... but not [[ButNotTooGay full]] les.''"
-->-- '''Bryan Safi''', ''[[http://current.com/items/90732681_thats-gay-lady-kisses.htm That's Gay]]''

In the eyes of fandom, a show's major selling point is that its principal characters are SchoolgirlLesbians... but oops, it was just a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship after all! The viewers have been {{Ship Tease}}d; and now that the writers got their attention, they can write more comfortable (to them) relationships. The lesbian {{subtext}} may [[BaitAndSwitchCredits not even last beyond the opening credits]].

The is pretty common in [[{{Moe}} Bishoujo fandom]], where the RomanticTwoGirlFriendship develops for a number of unintentional factors. One could say that [[GirlOnGirlIsHot audience likes girls in large quantities, and seeing two girls acting cute, even at each other, is better than one]]. One could also point out that ''far'' more attention is put into the interaction and communication between the girls; while a relationship with a guy just "happens" with most development offscreen. And if they're the [[ImprobablyFemaleCast only people you see]] but the show still maintains particular tropes, the audience is sometimes led toward an imagined payoff that might not be there. Often, this is coupled with a young age for both characters as well as the lack of any actual 'sexuality' in either character, barring [[IfItsYouItsOkay concessions]], as this outcome is harder to rationalize for an adult character. Note that any romantic relationship with boys, on the other hand, is considered completely serious at any age. Yes, it's [[DoubleStandard hypocritical]].

Tends to raise the hackles of a show's {{Yuri Fan}}dom, who tend to crop up more infrequently, but also makes them paranoid in the long run. Any male friend of one of the girls becomes the SwordOfDamocles; a possible route of escape for the writers via LastMinuteHookup. So [[DieForOurShip expect malevolence.]] It takes frustratingly little for a male character to become a love interest. A single scene, or a WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue, can instantly make {{canon}} overturn entire seasons of meaningful interaction between female characters.

An ironic result of this is making a relationship explicit can result in enough fuel for viewers who oppose the {{shipping}} to simply scoff that any evidence of the pairing is "just {{fanservice}}." The fact that a great many shows avoid [[UnfortunateImplications portraying relationships in significant detail muddies it further: so many other shows cop out at the last minute, so why should this one be different?]] The writers won't ever [[HideYourLesbians admit anything anyways]].

Outside of canon this trope is invoked a lot especially in H-doujins due to a rather persistent tendency for [[MostWritersAreMale male writers]] to be intimidated by the idea of girls who don't find them sexually attractive (though generally only mildly). This is the reason why a disturbingly large number of popular lesbian characters and characters who are popular in part because of their [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship near lesbian tendencies]] are depicted in huge amounts of heterosexual porn with a random [[AuthorAvatar male insert]] or more and very frequently in the form of rape instead of [[GirlOnGirlIsHot with each other]]. Think of it somewhat as the DistaffCounterpart to AllTheGoodMenAreGay except this time, you can get them back on the "home team" so to speak.

This trope is also occasionally applied to male characters, usually in order to appeal to {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s and an LGBTFanbase without [[ButNotTooGay alienating straight viewers]], in which case it's usually known as queerbaiting. Queerbaiting is usually considered quite homophobic, patronising and cynical when it's done these days, but in the past was often [[FairForItsDay the only way queer creators could make media featuring characters like themselves]] due to the values of the time. In these cases the SlashFic fanbase often shows up to make the {{Subtext}} text.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga]]
* While the original ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'' novels are a bit more lenient in {{subtext}}, the anime only has one canonical pairing, derailed when one member ''went off to become a nun,'' and when two girls are about to kiss, the camera cuts away as if it were [[SexyDiscretionShot something much more]] HarmfulToMinors. This is especially unusual, as ''[[PortmanteauSeriesNickname Marimite]]'' is pretty much defined by its [[YuriGenre Girls Love]] fandom.
* ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis: Tokyo 2040'' spent its first half building the SempaiKohai relationship -- and RomanticTwoGirlFriendship -- between Priss and Linna. The final half of the series drops this subplot like a hot potato for a [[LastMinuteHookup sudden romance between Priss and Leon]] that fits the "offscreen explanation" part of the trope to a T; Leon shows up at her club while she's on stage, does a smarmy clap for her, Priss grins a bit, and from thereon in they're treated as dating. Ironically, it was the original ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'' {{O|riginalVideoAnimation}}VA that gave rise to the mantra among many early anime fans that "All women in anime are lesbians. Unless they're bisexual."
* ''Manga/{{Nana}}''
** At its core, the interesting relationship between the two titular Nanas: [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl one a tough punk-rocker, the other a girly girl who likes frilly fashion]]. Disappointingly, most of the manga depicts the two girls' relationships with comparatively bland or annoying guys, to the point where the carefully set up romantic tension between them is all but thrown overboard--which isn't helped by the fact that one of them [[spoiler:gets knocked up]].
** One Nana develops an infatuation with her roommate later in the series, encouraging her to get together with (and get back to) the one decent opposite-sex relationship that she finds... because [[ValuesDissonance the man in question is close to both of them, and that will keep them together]]. She moons over her in a way that she doesn't moon over the man she eventually marries. Nothing comes of it though and both women do eventually marry. In later chapters however, we find that, after a short while, both women ''do'' separate from their husbands. One of them leaves Japan, and the other plans to go after her, claiming that she "loves" her.
** Ultimately, the theme of the series is that [[LoveHurts love is a hell of a thing to sort out]].
* The OVA for ''Anime/SaberMarionetteJ'' introduced Marine, a new Marionette who somehow imprinted on Lime as her Master -- and therefore, her implicit love interest. Although there is plenty of {{subtext}} in their relationship, Marine eventually realizes that her true [[strike:love]] master was the ocean, the first thing she saw when she awoke (underwater). Complicating this is Lime's perception of affection is generally much more childlike than the other androids. The more likely explanation is the {{O|riginalVideoAnimation}}VAs are {{Non Serial Movie}}s whose topics [[PutOnABus couldn't be put into the next season of the show]].
* The opening credits of ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus'' combine this with BaitAndSwitchCredits, although the two girls never really have that kind of relationship in the show, which isn't helped by the GeckoEnding of the anime. Despite all this the manga is licensed as a GirlsLove manga. The two have quite the RomanticTwoGirlFriendship - not helped by all the touching, blushing, and lampshades- and by the end it's all but stated Lucia is in love with Sumire. [[spoiler:However Sumire's bond with Lucia took a turn for the worse late into the series and even when it's rekindled it's ambiguous whether her affections are the same]]
* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' shocked fans by giving them what they wanted, but through a conclusion that suggested more than it showed. Utena and Anthy are engaged, share a room, share a bed, make a wonderfully handsome couple on campus, and gaze at each other adoringly during the opening credits. Their feelings for each other grow more and more intense as the series progresses. And, in the end, they ''do'' choose each other over any male love interest! [[UnpleasableFanbase Many fans believed, however, that the way it was depicted wasn't explicit enough]], leading to much debate about whether or not Anthy/Utena should be called a canon couple despite the director's [[WordOfGay confirmation that it is]]. Ironically, when TheMovie went on to depict the relationship as explicitly romantic, many fans [[UnpleasableFanbase then claimed to dislike it because it was somehow TOO obvious and thus fanservice]].
** On the other hand, ''Utena'' has a rare male/male version of this trope in the relationship between Mikage and Mamiya. While their initial interactions are unambiguously romantic, it eventually turns out that [[spoiler:Mikage (or better said, Professor Nemuro) was actually in love with Mamiya's older sister Tokiko all along, with his desire to help Mamiya being primarily for Tokiko's sake. Furthermore, the Mamiya seen throughout this story arc is revealed to actually be an illusion acted out by Anthy; the real Mamiya was DeadAllAlong, and the entire "relationship" was nothing more than a ploy by Anthy's brother Akio to manipulate Mikage.]]
* The relationship between Fate and Nanoha in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has quite a bit of this, leading to some InternetBackdraft. The makers of the show likely didn't want to ruin the TrueCompanions-dynamic with romantic relationships, but they really push the issue by making the female leads share an apartment and [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed even a bed together]]--not to mention having them [[HasTwoMommies adopt a child who starts calling them both "mama"]].
** Nevertheless, the [[FourthWallMailSlot Megami Sound Stages]] tried to explain that really, Fate was "more of a sister to Vivio" than a mama, and that Fate sent herself into deep space missions in order to "get out of the way." Something ''the voice actresses of the characters themselves'' have declared CanonDiscontinuity.
*** The Vivid manga (which take place two years before Force, in the same continuity as the other works in the franchise) retconned the Megami Sound Stages, by the notes along the first chapter (which said Fate and Nanoha raised Vivio together) AND Vivio, who said in the same first chapter that she had two mothers (and acknowledging it's something strange, [[HasTwoMommies but they're her mothers]]), and the last Soundstages released for the C76 Comiket definitely sunk any possibility of the Yuunoha pairing. And in bonus, we have Vivio in this Sound Stage saying in the prologue that she is Nanoha and Fate's child.
* The opening credits of ''Anime/MagicalPokaan'' feature TWO pairs. Although the four main female characters are paired up and almost-kiss each other while [[BarbieDollAnatomy sort of naked]], nothing even close to this happens in the actual show... but then again the entire OP seems [[BaitAndSwitchCredits deliberately misleading]].
* Used in an episode of ''Anime/RentalMagica''. In order to ensure the safety of her mage corporation, Addie plans on getting married - to Honami. Almost the whole episode is spent on them preparing for this girl-girl wedding. Then Itsuki interrupts, runs off with the brides, and declares that he'd rather [[MarryThemAll marry them both]]. It was an AlmostKiss too...
* A lot of relationships between the girls in ''Manga/OniisamaE'' (which ''is'' a manga of TheSeventies) get blown up prematurely by various degrees of human failings. In the end [[spoiler:all female main characters - with the exception of Rei, [[BuryYourGays who is dead by this point]] - enter relationships with men]].
** Actually, [[spoiler: Nanako refers to the "university student" she fancies in the end... with gender-neutral pronouns. She could perfectly be about to date an university ''girl'', as far as we know.]]
* ''Manga/HidamariSketch'' has a mild example, in that Miyako sometimes flirts heavily with Yuno, just to let things fizzle out because of her unfocused nature. And then of course there is the relationship between Hiro and Sae, although that is more a clear case of RomanticTwoGirlFriendship.
* The relationship between Mikan and Hotaru in ''Manga/GakuenAlice'' has something of this. Despite both girls becoming ever closer in the course of the series, leading to [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming numerous heartwarming moments]], it is becoming very clear that the writer intends to hook Mikan up with Natsume, a boy. Sure, all of the characters are [[PuppyLove relatively young]], but still...
* The ''AoiHana'' anime combines this with BaitAndSwitchCredits, what with all the romantic imagery involving Fumi and Akira. Sure, Fumi is openly lesbian and seen in an unambiguous relationship with a girl, but that girl is ''not'' Akira.
** The manga almost moved into this territory. Of all the (potential) yuri pairings, it seemed only the one between Hinako (the girls' adult teacher) and her girlfriend Orie would survive the author's penchant for [[KudzuPlot odd plot twists]], only for the ending to reveal [[spoiler: Fumi and Akira got back together and are in a live-in relationship after graduation]].
* A particular egregious example is the relationship between Akihito and Hiroomi in ''LightNovel/KyoukaiNoKanata''. The narrative is not at all shy about WillTheyOrWontThey tension between Aki and Mirai, and yet Hiroomi acts ''gay as hell'' whenever he's around Aki, including lovingly touching his body and giving him an AffectionateNickname. When Akihito and Mirai inevitably ended up together, some fans complained about Hiroomi allegedly existing just to trick {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s into watching a show revolving around yet another heterosexual romance.
* The emotions between the girls in ''Manga/{{ARIA}}'' often reach romantic levels, only to be cut off before they become ''too'' obvious.
** Fans noticed quite a few scenes in which Alicia and Akari seem to be ''very'' close to kissing. Maybe this is the reason why Amano introduced some rather forced male romantic interests later on.
* A somewhat mild version occurs in ''[[Anime/PrettySammy Magical Project S]]'' between Sasami and Misao, since the characters are underage. They're very close friends, and there's subtext there, but the end of the show very haphazardly pairs them up with their Ryo-ohki and Rumiya respectively, even though they didn't know either boy had human forms until the end of the show.
* The old GirlsLove manga ''Manga/MayasFuneralProcession'' ends with one of the girls marrying her male childhood friend, even though up until that point she'd been very {{Squick}}ed by the idea of marrying him, since she viewed him as LikeBrotherAndSister.
* ''Manga/YoureUnderArrest'' features a very intimate relationship between two LovelyAngels. The couple gets a lot of ShipTease from manga omakes, endings of the anime, and official artwork. However, they both have male love interests and don't express any romantic feelings for each other. Compared to their male love interests, which tend to be forced and they typically have an awkward relationship with, their relationship is the main cause of troubles in the series.
* Rika and Hanyuu come millimeters away from kissing -with hands intertwined and eyes closed, no less- in the closing theme of ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry: Kai''. Rika is fairly AmbiguouslyBi but it's never so obvious.
* After all the heightened emotions, almost-declarations of love and subtext between them, Anime/{{Canaan}} and Maria choose to separate because their lifestyles are too different--and they don't even once contact each other again. A lot of yuri fans felt this was quite a cop-out. At least the makers decided not to [[BuryYourGays kill any of them off]] or suddenly give one of them a straight option out of nowhere...
* ''Manga/DearS'' combines this with BaitAndSwitchCredits with an on screen kiss between Ren and Miu during the credits.
* ''Literature/{{Hyouka}}'' has a lot of implied romance between Chitanda and Ibara in the ''ending'' [[BaitAndSwitchCredits credits]]. Strangely, this isn't even shown until the end of the second episode, and by then it's pretty clear that they don't even have a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship in the series itself.
* Comes up often in ''Anime/RinneNoLagrange'', especially in the scene where Madoka and Lan make dramatic {{Love Confession}}s to each other...[[ShowWithinAShow for a movie]]. That last detail was left out of the episode preview. They were actually supposed in a relationship at some point, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen but this was written out of the show before it aired]] and replaced with lots of subtext and this trope.
* Minako and Saki in Erica Sakurazawa's ''Between The Sheets''. Not only does Saki vehemently reject Minako and even denounce the friendship at the end after a series of events, but Minako ends up with a new boyfriend. (Though she ''does'' say she'll never love him as much as she loves Saki.)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Cross-Media]]
* In the TV ''Series/DoctorWho'' there was some fairly strong innuendo that MadBomber ActionGirl companion Ace was bisexual, especially in the stories ''Ghost Light'' and ''Survival''. But when the TV show ended and the Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures spin-off novels were allowed to go for a [[HotterAndSexier more]] [[DarkerAndEdgier "adult"]] tone, she was depicted as entirely straight.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* A common complaint about ''Film/KissingJessicaStein'', in that the two women don't end up together (and it's implied that the Jessica ends up with her ex-boyfriend shortly after the two come out). The problem with this, though, is that people don't seem to note that it's outright stated that neither woman is explicitly gay--in fact, outside of the relationship, Jessica is only seen dating guys while Helen dates both. Also, the film shows the entire course of the relationship, over the space of nine months.
* In ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' (the movie) Alice says that she and Bella will be "really good friends" in a suggestive manner, and Edward responds with a sneering, "Can you keep your thoughts to yourself!" It turns out that Alice is [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday SO TOTALLY NOT GAY]], and she REALLY REALLY MEANT THEY WOULD JUST BE GOOD FRIENDS.
** The book has a good bit of this at well. That line is in the actual book, as is Alice pointing out that Bella" ''does'' smell good!" As is the bit about Alice loving Bella deeply. Then throw in how often Alice hangs on Bella, carries her around, etc. and you've got a ripe lesyay shipping bed--except Meyer, as a devout Mormon, would not write lesbians into her story.
* On the DVD commentary for ''Filn/BringItOn'', the director notes that a scene showing Creator/KirstenDunst and ElizaDushku (who has a strong lesbian fanbase) in bed together wasn't intended to hint at girl-on-girl action. Really!
* The Israeli movie ''Walk on Water'' is about a Mossad agent who is sent to assassinate an aging former Nazi, then meets the man's grandson, who gives him a new outlook on life. They get really close. I mean, ''[[HoYay really]]'' close, and then it is revealed that said grandson is gay. Then, in the end, the Mossad agent gets together with the grandson's sister, an until-then-minor character. The HoYay between the agent and the grandson, however, was so blatant that I couldn't help but wonder if the grandson was originally intended to be the agent's {{Love Interest|s}}.
** Considering that the film is all about people of different categories looking past their differences, I think it's actually thematically necessary the Mossad agent to be straight. But I would agree that the homoeroticism between the two leads is thick, and it's easy to see him marrying the sister as a thin substitution for his real goal.
* In the ''[[Film/JoshuuSasori Female Prisoner Scorpion]]'' series, protagonist Matsu's relationship with Yuki is pretty ambiguous. In the first film, they clearly care about each other a lot, but it's not clear if this has a sexual dimension. The third film features the same actress playing someone with the same name, but who is clearly a different character, although Matsu apparently recognises her (it's [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs a tad complicated]]). ''This'' Yuki is either enfatuated or fascinated with Matsu, but is fairly [[BrotherSisterIncest Messed up]] [[PitySex when it comes]] [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold to sexual matters]].
* A rather old example, from a 1930s play-gone-movie. Karen and Martha from ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour'' share a close intimate friendship, though Karen is engaged to a man. Their friendship is full of subtext on both sides [[spoiler:but only Martha is revealed to be gay]].
* The trailers for ''Film/JennifersBody'' tended to focus heavily on the [[HoYay/{{Film}} Les Yay]] kiss between Jennifer and Needy. In the actual movie, Needy is completely straight and Jennifer is a literal [[ImAHumanitarian man eater]]. It is possible that the kiss was shoehorned into the film explicitly for trailer material. That said, Jennifer's true orientation is left ambiguous. It's possible that she dates a lot of men simply because of social-jockeying and indeed, some of her lines hint that she's bisexual or a closeted lesbian. Given that she frequently [[MomentKiller interrupts]] intimate moments between Needy and Chip and is [[ClingyJealousGirl incredibly possessive]] towards her, there is a lot of evidence to support the latter theory.
* The trailers for ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' focused on the sexual subtext between their HotterAndSexier versions of Holmes and Watson with other characters commenting that they should get a room, and the trailers for the second one focused on Holmes trying out crossdressing and flirting with Watson and so on. All the cast interviews emphasised it, too. This subtext ''is'' in the actual films, but goes absolutely nowhere - the only payoff of it in the first is a scene with Holmes talking to Irene in a way that can be interpreted as either romantic for her or romantic for Watson.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Quite a few ''Series/{{Alias}}'' fans suspect that Rachel was [[AbortedArc intended to be a lesbian]] due to her pointedly saying that Agent Grace wasn't her type in an early appearance. For whatever reason, she was confirmed as straight later.
* A decidedly vocal section of the ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' fandom firmly believed that Alex and Olivia were together, ShippingGoggles aside. This was later disproved by Olivia being baffled at the ''idea'' that she might be gay, much to the irritation of the A/O shippers. (Dick Wolfe is ''not'' known for his bravery about this, however. [[SuddenlySexuality "Is this because I'm a lesbian?"]], anyone?)
* The majority of the advertising for ''Series/RizzoliAndIsles'' seems to be created with the mandate "do everything you can short of blatantly lying to convince prospective viewers that the leads could end up making out at any moment." Anyone actually tuning into the show will discover that, despite copious amounts of [[LesYay/RizzoliAndIsles Les Yay]], they are both, in fact, heterosexual.
* ''Series/AllyMcBeal'' copped a lot of shit when it turned Ally and Ling's kiss into an AbortedArc.
* A constant criticism of ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' is that the copious amounts of HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday and NotThatTheresAnythingWrongWithThat between Sherlock and John is an attempt at queerbaiting, especially since both characters are quite obviously never going to kiss and get various female love interests. However, the first episode to give Sherlock a female love interest (Irene) delved quite deeply into the heartache caused by the various IncompatibleOrientation-dependent romantic attachments that he, Irene and John had stumbled into, pushing it further into being actually queer, if also loaded with UnfortunateImplications depending on how you feel about out lesbians falling in love with men. It should also be pointed out that one of the series co-creators is an openly gay man.
* ''Series/OnceUponATime'' has been accused of this.
** The first season had Emma and Regina share several long, angry stares with their faces inches apart while fighting over Henry, who is Emma's biological son and Regina's adopted son, in a way that resembled a custody battle. They have also combined their magic to form a portal to reach another world when it was previously said that [[PowerOfLove true love is the only magic powerful enough to transcend realms]]. They have also combined their magic on several other occasions. The two have since been paired off with male love interests.
** There have also been complaints regarding the relationship between Mulan and Aurora in the second and third seasons, which had some very heavy sexual innuendo. It ended with [[spoiler:Mulan seemingly on the point of declaring her love for Aurora, before finding out that Aurora was pregnant by her husband and [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy walking away sadly]]]]. Shippers were not happy.
* ''Series/FakingIt'' basically does this in-universe as its central plot.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Pop group Music/{{Tatu}} did this for early marketing. Horny guys think the two singers are lesbians, buy the [=CDs=], find out they're a pretty good group. Continued onstage after they were known not to be, sort of an odd musical equivalent of {{Kayfabe}}.
* Music/KatyPerry's "I Kissed A Girl", which is pretty unambiguous in its title and rode to success on being a mainstream song about girl-on-girl action, backs away from the idea in the video by not showing any girls kissing each other and finally turning out to be Katy's [[AllJustADream dream]] as she wakes up beside her boyfriend. Her ''boy''friend, you see? Okay.
** The fact that she has a boyfriend is stated in the lyrics, so it's not too much of a switch.
** There was a spoof of the song featuring Creator/KarenGillan as Katy Perry called "Why I Kissed a Girl" where she claims she only kissed a girl to get a hit. At the end of the video she is picked up by her boyfriend and rudely ditches the female dancers she was performing with up to that point.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theater]]
* Elphaba and Glinda from ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' have a very close bond. It starts off as pure FoeYay full of BelligerentSexualTension but morphs into a fluffy friendship, most likely the closest in the musical. It's even thicker than in the [[Literature/{{Wicked}} source book]], as the musical focuses almost entirely on them. However Glinda is apparently in love with Fiyero and Elphaba's in love with Fiyero, [[spoiler:plus he lives in the musical]], so that gets in the way of any of their romance. WordOfGay backs their romance up but it's hard to say whether they were ever together.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Since your typical {{hentai}} game has one or two major male characters and boatloads of pretty girls, the marketing images often involve multiple female characters looking mighty friendly, even if there's not even a romantic friendship between them in-game. For that matter, several games play up a romantic friendship between two girls and teasingly suggest that one of them may be gay for the other, only to eventually drop that subject without so much as a girl/girl kiss ever being shown. Obviously some authors do not agree that GirlOnGirlIsHot. Or are using GirlOnGirlIsHot to advertise.
* On the surface the ''{{Neptunia}}'' series seems to have all the LesYay an all female game could want, but playing through the games themselves shows that there is only one, possibly two, girls that like girls, and the only certain one is a dlc character in a game that got retconned.
* You can bet that, considering the ImprobablyFemaleCast, the ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' fandom has every trope regarding to love etc covered in detail multiple times over - including this one. That said, ZUN never stated or denied homosexual relationships between his characters and also never used this trope himself, so when discussing it with fans, please use discretion.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* [[http://www.keenspot.com/data/news-candi-dec2008.jpg This]] ad for ''Webcomic/{{Candi}}''.
* Sydney in an early ''Webcomic/UnintentionallyPretentious''. While she acknowledges the act of leading Mia in public to be innocent, she believes people see two girls walking together arm in arm and [[http://www.unintentionallypretentious.com/index.asp?c=32 extrapolate to sexy results]], and suggests that she get a guide dog for ''her'' benefit.
