Distillum is a webcomic series created by Sarah "Pickles" Dill, and it can be found [[http://www.distillum.com/ here]] or on Pickles' [[http://sarahpicklesdill.deviantart.com/?rnrd=10891 deviantArt]].

For as long as he can remember, Rob Gallo has always had a strange ability [[{{Psychometry}} to find lost things]], a "kind of clairvoyance" as the narrator, Rob's [[HeterosexualLifePartners roommate]] Jamie Cris, points out.

One night, when Jamie drags Rob out to the bar, they bump into a young woman (or rather, [[CrashIntoHello she bumps into them]]) on their way there. When leaving, they see the [[CallToAdventure woman's purse on the ground]], and, finding her in a bind, [[BigDamnHeroes save her life]].

Sometime later, they meet [[OurGhostsAreDifferent something really odd]], which is quickly dispelled by Sidney, a mysterious woman [[GoodIsNotNice with a bad temper]], currently showing very clearly, because Kavitha should have died that night, and saving her has royally messed up the timestream. Which is why Sidney recruits the trio to help her fix the time anomalies that continue to crop up.

!!This webcomic provides examples of:

* AerithAndBob: Kavitha, though she has a Hindi name.
* ArtEvolution: The art from chapter 1 is quite a bit different than the art in chapter 4.
* AllThereInTheManual: Extra facts about the characters, such as birthdays, are mostly found either on Pickles' deviantART or in the [[http://www.distillum.com/?page_id=128 Cast]] page on her website.
* AntiHero: Sid is either a Type I or a Type III.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Go on, try and threaten Rob (or Kavitha). Jamie will stand in his defense.
* ButchLesbian: Rough-and-though Sidney states in chapter 4 that she's "not into dudes".
* CrashIntoHello: How Kavitha meets Jamie and Rob.
* CatsAreMean: Nina usually seems to [[SubvertedTrope subvert]] this, but she dislikes Kavitha [[spoiler: because Kavitha is an anomaly]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Oh, Jamie. Sidney, too.
* DisappearedDad: Implied in chapter 4 for Rob.
* ElegantClassicalMusician: Rob and his cello.
* FacePalm: [[http://www.distillum.com/?p=613 Sidney]], on learning Rob and Jamie saved Kavitha's life.
* {{Foil}}: Jamie to Rob and Sidney to Kavitha. Sidney is also Rob's.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Shortly after Rob saves Kavitha from the bullet, there's a minor ArtShift and shhhhh sound. Also, Nina hissing at Kavitha. {{Lampshaded}} in the artist comments about Rob's dad.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: With Rob as the Phlegmatic, Jamie as the Sanguine, Kavitha as Melancholic, and Sidney as the Choleric.
* GenreSavvy: Jamie, sometimes Sidney displays this.
* GoodIsNotNice: Saving the world is a responsible job. No place for incompetents, as Sidney is quick to demonstrate.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Jamie and Rob.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Part of Distillum power set. Sidney says they're just "[[OurGhostsAreDifferent echoes]]".
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sidney, at least according to Rose.
* MsExposition: Sidney.
* TheNarrator: Jamie.
* TheNicknamer: Sidney never calls anyone by their real name. Jamie, for instance, has been called "blondie" and "cowboy", Rob "you", and she refers to Kavitha scornfully as "the anomaly" on a few occasions. Likewise, her grandmother is called Mamee, even in the tags.
* NoOSHACompliance: The abandoned shed Kavitha was held in.
* PaperTalisman: Used by Distillum to dispel anomalies. Sidney has an entire shed wallpapered with these.
* PsychicPowers: Rob and Sidney. They are powerful [[{{Psychometry}} psychometrists]] and experience some sort of [[TouchTelepathy peek into each other's memories while touching]]. Distillum may also have precognition, but this always [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity bites them]] [[YouCantFightFate in the rear]].
* RandomlyGifted: According to the diagram being a Distillum works this way.
* RedOniBlueOni: Jamie and Sidney are both Red, while Kavitha and Rob display Blue traits.
* SherlockScan: Mamee deduces Rob plays either guitar or cello by the look of his fingers and neck. He's suitably impressed.
* ShoutOut: In the [[http://www.distillum.com/?p=672 fake ending]], we have [[Series/DoctorWho Ten and the TARDIS]], Film/BillAndTed, [[Film/BackToTheFuture Marty McFly]], and [[Series/StargateSG1 a Stargate]]. Sidney was not amused.
** In chapter 4, Jamie irritably informs Sidney that she's not [[Film/TheKarateKid Mr. Miyagi]].
* SwordAndSorcerer: Distillum tend to have Pamvani, or bodyguards/assistants, giving them the Glacier and Glass Cannon sort of dynamic. Jamie's growing into the role rapidly.
* SupernaturalMartialArts: Sidney teaches one to the protagonists.
--> '''Sidney''': That's what tai-chi is derived from.
* TheTeamNormal: Jamie. Sid's training is [[TakeALevelInBadass giving him]] [[BadassNormal an edge]], though.
* TimeyWimeyBall: Well, now it is. GoodJobBreakingItHero !
* TitleDrop: In Chapter 4.
