->Spacetime is Curvy
-->--From Anaïs' notes for her Physics class

''Curvy'' is a {{webcomic}} by Creator/SylvanMigdal, under the [[PaperThinDisguise psuedonym]] of "M. Magdalene" (though all his other works are linked from the Curvy page). It updates weekly on Saturdays. The comic is way too NSFW to link.

Anaïs Phalèse is an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, who plays softball and worries about passing her Physics class. One day she meets Fauna Lokjom, Despoina (Princess) of Candy World. Anaïs helps Fauna flee from the bad guys who are chasing her. They flee from reality to reality. They are chased by the minions of Prince Boglox of Stupid World, and by Fervid Wexler, a Federal Agent who believes that Anaïs and Fauna are terroristbes.

!!This comic shows examples of:
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Fauna uses a little visit down south, to help locate Anaïs in Super World. Yes, she has mystic [[RhymesOnADime masturbation location]] powers.
* AbusiveParents and ArrangedMarriage: The Imperator of Candy World (Fauna's father) agreed to marry his daughter to Prince Boglox. In exchange, Boglox will pay the royal gambling debts.
* AccidentalMarriage: In marriage ceremonies on Candy World, the bride is wrapped in a plastic bag and the groom unwraps her. Anaïs arrives in the nick of time, breaks up the wedding between Fauna and Prince Boglox, and unwraps Fauna herself. Fauna now believes that she's married to Anaïs.
* AirVentPassageway: used by Fauna. Justified, as her liquorice body is more... squeezable than a human body.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: After returning home she covers for her absence by admitting to working on a political campaign.
-->'''Student 1''': Anaïs! I heard you were living under a bridge in Topeka with a meth addict.
-->'''Student 2''': I heard you had a nervous breakdown and got put in an asylum where they spray you with ice water!
-->'''Student 3''': I heard you volunteered for the Romney campaign!
-->'''Anaïs''': [[SarcasmMode It's all true.]]
* AwesomeMcCoolname: The humans (with the exception of Anaïs' mother Colette and Boglox' teacher Mallory) all have unusual or outright off-the-wall names, including Anaïs' brother Torus, and [[TooDumbToLive dumber-than-a-sack-of-hammers]] special agent Fervid Wexler.
* BadassNormal: On Super World, Anaïs adopts the identity of Slurve, who beats up muggers and other bad guys with her baseball bat.
* BarrierBustingBlow: After "Dropping some carnal knowledge" with Anais, Mallory jumps downstairs with her, slightly disappointed that Fauna isn't there. Cue Fauna punching through the wall, and into Mallory's face.
* BigBad: Prince Boglox is TooDumbToLive, but his evil scheme (marry Fauna, then invade Boring World) launches the plot.
* BigBeautifulWoman: Susie is rather pudgy but she has a dashing prince pining for her.
* BigDamnHeroes: Anaïs and fifty mimes arrive just in time to break up the wedding.
** Jonathan's mother and a huge group of merfolk arrive in time to save Bloodybelly's ship from being taken over.
* BizarroUniverse: In Fauna's universe, ice cream is a staple, but broccoli is a treat and should be avoided when one is dieting.
* BlatantLies: Anaïs denies she's thinking of Fauna while making out with the Invisible Man... and promptly offers him some liquorice.
* BondOneLiner: "'''There's''' your fucking lunch money!"
* BuffySpeak: Anaïs: "Hey, I just had a brain... thing!"
* CaptainObvious: A literal one. He's a hero in Super World. It's a bit of a subversion; he has yet to say anything humorously obvious or understated.
** He finally does say something obvious. [[spoiler:As his ironic FamousLastWords.]]
-->'''Captain Obvious''' [[spoiler:Huh. I'm still alive.]]
-->'''[[spoiler:Ages into dust.]]'''
* ChekhovsGun: Boring World's monolith gets a brief mention in chapter 1 but doesn't become significant until chapter 6.
* ClothingDamage: About as prevalent as any other method of getting someone naked. Anaïs falls victim to this when Mallory hits her with [[TheNudifier a nudifier spell]].
** Any time Fauna uses her full power her clothes usually end up shredded.
* CosmicRetcon: How the heroes of Super-World are always brought back from the dead. [[spoiler:Captain Obvious uses it to finally kill himself for good.]]
* CrapsackWorld: Out of all the ones shown so far, Corporate World is one of the least friendly, with all people basically slaves to the leaders of the world, and absolutely ''everything'' must be bought and paid for, including pleasantries like small talk (to say nothing of smooches or sex).
** Self-Loathing World and Boorish World didn't look too good, either.
* CultureClash: Fauna believes that she's married to Anaïs. Anaïs doesn't believe that she's married, and doesn't understand that Fauna has no clue about monogamy or sexual faithfulness. This causes Anaïs to run away from Fauna in Chapter 3-1. As of 1-2, they seem to have an understanding.
* DeathSeeker: [[spoiler: Captain Obvious, due to being basically {{Immortal}}.]]
* DistractedByTheSexy: Fauna and Anaïs use it against Fervid.
** Used by Anais again to win her game of Suicide against Mallory.
* TheDragon: Mallory for Phince Boglox. Also a DragonWithAnAgenda
* EverybodyHasLotsOfSex: '''Seriously.'''
* EveryoneHasStandards: Wexler helps free the liars even though he still believes them to be terrorists, stating that even terrorists deserve better treatment.
* EveryoneIsBi: Practically, anyway. Even, eventually, the obnoxiously straight-laced Wexler.
-->'''Wexler''': So...does having sex with a man and liking it make you, like, ''necessarily'' gay?
* FakeOutMakeOut: Upon seeing the leader of Stupid World, and Acuto on the streets of Corporate World, Anaïs promptly grabs her new roommate Katey Anne, and plants one on her. Katey Anne...doesn't seem to have much of an issue with it.
* FlippingTheBird: Fauna gives Mallory the double-bird. Mallory passes it off as pre-wedding nerves.
* FlungClothing: When [[spoiler: Anaïs accidentally calls Fauna in superhero disguise by her actual name]], Fauna is naked before her flung clothes even hit the ground.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: [[spoiler:Mallory left Boring World by taking the place of a child of a pair of Stupid Worlders. Said child was a young Fervid Wexler. Subverted in that neither Mallory or Wexler have realized it (or Mallory just hasn't cared enough to tell him).]]
* GenreSavvy: Susie knows when to hide.
* HairTriggerTemper: The appropriately named Vice President Angry T. Nelson.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Anaïs keeps baseballs and her bat hidden in her shirt, even though there's no indication they're their until she pulls them out.
* HowDidYouKnowIDidnt: After Torus knocks out a possessed football player with a chair.
-->'''Anaïs''': Tor! How did you know that guy was possessed?
-->'''Torus''': Huh?
* HypocriticalHumor: Anaïs was jealous and angry over Fauna sleeping with Bell, yet she goes on to have quite a few affairs of her own before she and Fauna are reunited.
%% This entry is staying commented out unless a poster can identify which comic Fauna seems grouchy. [[Creator/{{Krendall}} I] just reread that chapter and I can't find it. **Fauna has no problem hooking up with whoever catches her fancy, even inviting a jealous Anaïs into the action, but gets just a little grouchy after finding out about Anaïs and Jonathan.
* ImportantHaircut: Anaïs cuts her hair shortly after she becomes disillusioned with Fauna.
* InspectorJavert: Fervid Wexler, TheMenInBlack who has convinced himself that Anaïs and Fauna are terrorists out to get the United States and keeps pursuing them, confusing the alternate worlds for Middle Eastern countries.
* IntimateHealing: Fauna's brand of magical healing often involves smooching.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Stupid World is apparently an entire world of this. Its inhabitants insist that it's really called "Smart World."
* MagicalGirlfriend: Fauna
* {{Magitech}}: [[spoiler:Boring World's leaders lack access to magic, so they just build mechs that suck the magic out of captured liars.]]
* TheMenInBlack: Fervid Wexler
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: Anaïs' "nosy sense" is what gets the story started.
* {{Multiverse}}: Each reality has its defining characteristic (or gimmick, as Fauna refers to it): Candy World, Stupid World, Water World, Mosquito World (Now with more poison ivy!). Anaïs is upset to learn that her reality, which has no particular defining characteristic, is known to the rest of reality as Boring World.
* NakedOnArrival: Anaïs, upon entering Corporate World in Chapter 4-1; she apparently forgot she was nude at the time she grabbed the transfer device and winds up in a human resources department surrounded by people.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny
* OfficialCouple: Anaïs and Fauna
* OnlySaneMan: Mallory seems to be the only resident of Stupid World with a working brain. [[spoiler:It turns out she's originally from Boring World.]]
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Anaïs
* PaperThinDisguise: this trope seems to operate in full force in Super World, apparently preventing Fauna and Anaïs from recognizing each other while they're in their superhero suits.
* PlanetOfHats: Anaïs insists you can't sum up a whole world in one word, but apparently you can.
** The chapters are divided among which Hat Planet Anaïs is on. So far, Boring World, Candy World, Ocean World, Corporate World, and Super World.
** Boorish World was also visited briefly, by mistake. Visitors are informed that if they don't like it there, they can go eat a bag of dicks.
* PirateGirl: Bloodybelly “Bell” Comb Jelly.
* PoliticalStereotype: The Candy World word for politician is actually "liar". Hence the line, "I must speak to your nation's liars".
** It's later revealed that all multiverse leaders are called lairs, not just Candy World's.
* PornWithPlot: And humor. Virtually every scene involves at least a little nudity or sex.
** In-universe, Anaïs hijacks a porn movie on Corporate World to add some plot.
* PrettyFreeloader: Katey-Anne, after leaving Corporate World. Anais gets fed up with her, and kicks her out.
* RealityWarper: [[spoiler:Mallory, after absorbing the power of Boring Worlds Monolith.]]
* RunawayBride: Fauna really doesn't want to marry Prince Boglox.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: and how! (Although Anaïs seems to be bisexual -- she did hook up with mer-transman Jonathan and her [[strike:softball card]]cast listing describes her as a [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre switch-hitter]]. Fauna, on the other hand, has shown no interest in any males so far.)
** Anaïs was really enjoying watching the two male prison guards get it on, until she remembered that she wanted to escape. Not to mention the roomful of gay porn actors.
* ShipSinking: Anaïs' promising proto-relationships with Jonathan and Katey-Anne hit the rocks surprisingly fast.
* StrangerInAFamiliarLand: Anaïs makes it back to Boring World in Chapter 1-2 and before she realizes it she's almost back right where she started. Fauna disappears (secretly kidnapped by the government), Anaïs is drugged to think the whole thing was a dream (maybe), and she's surrounded by reminders of how humdrum everything is.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Lampshaded as part of a major TakeThat to TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks.
* TimeSkip: An unspecified amount of time passes after Anais and Katey-Anne enter Super World. Long enough for Anais to grow her old haircut back.
* TheUnfrozenCavemanLawyer: Anaïs has a habit of adapting rapidly to whatever weirdness she encounters in the worlds she winds up in and taking charge when necessary. SanityHasAdvantages and she's pretty much the OnlySaneMan.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Mallory usually walks around with a pair of what can best be called "Boob claws". And they don't really hide anything.
* WalkingTheEarth: More like Walking the Earths.
* WeaksauceWeakness: Liar magic is useless against plastic.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Wexler ''thinks'' he's doing the right thing... [[spoiler:In the latest chapter [[HeelFaceTurn he finally is]].]]
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: [[spoiler: The heroes of Super World are {{Immortal}}, due to selling the right to their lives to Corporate World, in exchange for a planet saving laser. They effectively are living comic book characters, dying, and never staying dead. And they don't like it.]]
* YaoiFangirl: Anaïs. Frequently.
** Susie writes [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Jaerith]]/[[Series/DoctorWho Doctor]] fanfiction.
