[[caption-width-right:270:Roomie and Lillian.]]

''Go Get A Roomie'' is a comedic webcomic centered around the wacky hijinx of the eponymous Roomie, a ShamelessFanserviceGirl, and her friends. These mainly consist of a gaggle of girls whom she [[ReallyGetsAround has slept with as payment for letting her sleep over at their place]] -- thus her nickname. Other recurring cast members include her favorite bartender, a pair of fraternal twins named Richard and Ramona (who are, respectively, a sub and a dom), and a rather confused vanilla guy who can only look on in mild horror at her lifestyle. Soon she meets the introverted, [[{{Sleepyhead}} nigh-perpetually-slumbering]] Lillian, or "Lazy Tyke" as Roomie affectionately dubs her, who is far more at home in her dreamscapes and imagination than in the waking world. Lillian, who loves sleep but is utterly unconcerned with the idea of sleeping ''with'' anyone, is perhaps the one person who has no designs upon Roomie -- and thus, Roomie becomes fascinated with her. Despite LT's halfhearted protestations, Roomie ends up becoming her steady roommate -- and just as unusual for the restless Roomie as this extended period of consistent lodging, is the break in her pattern of omni-amorous unattachment. What follows is a romance of sorts as they grow closer together, and a study of the character features and flaws which have resulted in their deeply unique, and often heartwarming, personalities.

The comic is definitely '''{{NSFW}}''': a running gag involves Roomie's aversion to clothes, in keeping with decidedly hippie value set. It was initially published on Website/DeviantArt by batlesbo (formally nana-51) [[http://batlesbo.deviantart.com/gallery/26030322 in a folder of her gallery]]; it was eventually moved onto its own website. Since the current strip (and hence the main page) may be NSFW, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=1 here is the first]].

----
!!This webcomic provides examples of the following tropes:

* TheAlcoholic[=/=]LadyDrunk: Roomie, who despite having what seems to be a pretty decent alcohol tolerance winds up drunk on an astonishingly regular basis (including a [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=5 highly suggestive ode]] to [[spoiler:beer]]).
* AllergicToLove: PlayedForDrama [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie26-171457458 with Roomie]], whose turbulent lifestyle inevitably causes anguish to anyone who has serious feelings for her.
* ArtEvolution: The art has evolved ''big time'' from the early strips.
* AttractiveBentGender: Lillian apparently looks good as a [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=327 guy]], at least according to Ramona and her imagination.
* BareYourMidriff: Many of Lillian's dream outfits, in stark contrast to her real clothes.
* {{BBW}}: Roomie nicknames her chubby friend [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=365 Guilden]] because she's "Dark, strong, irresistible, and wet".
* BeneathTheMask: [[spoiler:Apparently, being as loved and idolized by everyone as she is gets a little suffocating for Roomie. It's part of the reason she's so drawn to Lillian.]]
* BiTheWay:
** Allan, definitely.
** Possibly Roomie, but this is subject to a series of [[TheUnreveal Unreveals]], and she's only been seen with women.
* {{Bishonen}}: Richard
* BrickJoke:
** The first time Lillian meets Roomie while being awake, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=31 her brother refers to Roomie as her "bed buddy."]] Later, when Roomie introduces Lillian to WOC, the latter asks if they are friends or '[[UnusualEuphemism bed buddies]]', which leads to [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=281 a slightly confused answer.]]
** [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=91 Early on Aggie tells Lillian about Roomie's "weakspot"]] ("Her back is like a ''huge cli-''" "Clicking button that turns her on and off?" "One more than the other, but you get the idea!"). Later, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=420 when Roomie is singing and wakes Lillian up, Lillan touches her back, saying "Off"]]. Still later, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=495 WOC tries to talk to Roomie while giving her a back massage]].
** A few hours after [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=447 Roomie found a "Little Rooster" in Lillian's drawer]], [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=460 Allan comments on his sister not owning any "toys".]]
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Lillian has a tendency to collapse on the spot not long after ingesting even the smallest amount of alcohol. Well... an even greater tendency than usual, that is.
* CatapultNightmare: Happens when Lillian's shadow of negative emotions [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=224 impales her]] in her dream.
* CatsAreSnarkers: Lillian's cat is very much like a muted form of her owner.
* CerebusSyndrome: After the madcap opening act, and early FishOutOfWater strips of Lillian adapting to Roomie's world, the love story becomes both more prominent and more muted, shunting Roomie's manic lifestyle to the side, especially after pressure from the advertisers reduced the frequency of nudity somewhat.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: That, or Roomie is just good at ObfuscatingStupidity [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie21-169439643 here]].
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Roomie's punishment to someone not willing to wake up is covering them up with love bites.
* CooldownHug: Roomie gives one to Matt to resolve some of the [[{{UST}} tension]] that built up between them by [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie24-170937018 strip 24]].
* CrazyPrepared: Roomie has left some clothes in peoples' places all over town, so no matter ''where'' she sleeps she already has something to wear when she wakes up. Not that she minds just going ''naked'' instead.
* {{Crossover}}: Roomie makes a brief stop by [[http://woodyafterhours.com/comic/affection-attack/ Woody After Hours.]]
* {{Deconstruction}}: Roomie is gradually turning into one of the MarySue archetype by recognising that, because of all her many perceived perfections, [[StaticCharacter she isn't growing and developing as a human being]] in the same way that [[DefrostingIceQueen Lillian is]]. And, while LT is there to comfort her when she starts having these doubts by effectively saying that she's fine the way she is, [[HiddenDepths it's very telling that Roomie]] ''[[BeneathTheMask doesn't believe her]]''.
* DefrostingIceQueen: In time Lillian finally warms up to Roomie.
* DeadpanSnarker: Lillian, full stop. It comes through when she's making up stories as well, as when [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=264 she's telling a story about The Little One:]]
-->'''Lillian''' [''narrating'']: It considered everything it did as ''fabulous''. Even getting its butt kicked.
* DeathGlare: [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=648 Don't forget to say please when ordering at Jo's.]]
* DismissingACompliment: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=153 Here]] (lampshaded in [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=154 the next strip]]):
-->'''Roomie:''' Okay, let's get this straight. When I say something to you, or anyone else for that matter, I say it because I ''mean'' it. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. Are. Beautiful.]] There, get used to it.\\
'''Lillian:''' You lost me at "[[{{Pun}} straight]]".
* DistractedByTheShiny:
** Roomie stops a more serious conversation about Lillian mid-sentence upon inadvertently activating a touch lamp.
-->'''Roomie:''' '''ITJUSTLITUP!'''
** Roomie tries to dodge Lillian's questions about her by [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=261 stepping into a clearing on a sunny day]].
** Even Lillian isn't immune to [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=457 shiny stuff.]]
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Roomie doesn't like to wear ''anything,'' but even when she's otherwise fully clothed she still doesn't like to wear shoes.
-->'''Lillian:''' (pointing down at Roomie's bare feet) Aren't you forgetting something?\\
'''Roomie:''' I am, aren't I? (comes back in the next panel [[ComicallyMissingThePoint wearing a headband]]) '''NOW''' I'm ready!
* DoubleEntendre: Roomie needs approximately three seconds to come up with one. Comes back as a BrickJoke when, at a later point, Lillian is given the option in a game of "Truth or Dare" to either tell the truth of whom her "first" was, or make up a double entendre on the spot, with a time limit on three seconds to make up her mind. She decides to go for the "think like Roomie" approach and delivers [[TakeAThirdOption a combination of both]] just as the three second time limit expires.
* DoubleMeaningTitle: Chapter 13 is titled "Your Song". [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=397 It begins with Allan's phone]], which has the Music/EltonJohn track as its ringtone. [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=434 It ends with Lillian talking to Allan about Roomie's suggestion]] that [[spoiler:she write stories based on her dreams]], and Allan saying, "[[TitleDrop It's your song, Lillian.]] Now you can dance to it."
* DreamWithinADream: After getting dream shanked, Lillian wakes up...next to a topless Evelyne. Who becomes a demon.
-->'''Lillian:''' Waking up from nightmare: Round two.
* DrunkOnMilk: Roomie apparently gets herself [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie30-174384702 drunk]] on [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie29-174100609 water]]. TruthInTelevision, in that particular types of alcoholic beverages (red wine being a classic example) will leave alcohol in a person's liver; a sudden intake of liquid will thus flush this alcohol out, causing intoxication. Similar effects can occur in heavy drinkers.
* DudeShesLikeInAComa: Roomie briefly entertained the thought of thoroughly ravaging Lillian in her sleep, but settled for giving her a kiss on the cheek instead. D'aaawh.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Lillians nicknamed "Lazy Tyke" by Roomie. It takes only moments for this to get twisted into "Lazy Dyke".
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Roomie seems to inspire this wherever she goes. One character even explained that even though she is straight for the most part, she ''does'' make exceptions for shy little virgins who have never known a woman's touch... Roomie is an exception to that exception.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: No, not the actual barkeep (whose name is Jo), but Roomie herself. As explained in [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-get-a-Roomie-pg3-163461439 strip 3]], it's a short for "Room-mate". Her real name has not been revealed so far.
* FacePalm: It's not like Matt has much of a choice about it.
* FreudianSlip:
** While the {{Double Entendre}}s are being flung left and right, this is the only one that ''seems'' to pass as [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie109-211392499 unintentional]].
** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in one strip, but it is quite possible that the "slip" was intentional.
* FlatWhat: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=118 Allan's reaction when Lillian called him up to yell at him was not what she expected.]]
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: As Matt [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie18-168188967 puts it]], watching half-naked girls is more interesting than trees. Also, arguably the whole point of the comic.
* GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave: WOC being a little older does nothing to deter Roomie finding her attractive.
* HalfIdenticalTwins: Ramona and Richard, to the point that [[spoiler:they can each pass as the other twin.]]
* HetIsEw: Roomie jokes about being [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie23-170782803 heterosexually infected]] by Matt's kiss.
* {{Hikikomori}}: Lillian, who sleeps the better part of the day and barely interacts with anyone, which is why her brother [[spoiler:set her up with Roomie in the first place]].
* HurricaneOfEuphemisms: Jo's attempt to explain to Lillian that Roomie is in the back room engaging in lesbian sex.
* HypocriticalHumor: Ramona seems to make a habit of this when bantering with her twin brother Richard. [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=326 For example:]]
-->'''Ramona''' [''{{Dope Slap}}ping Richard'']: You're doing it again.\\
'''Richard:''' Doing what?\\
'''Ramona:''' {{Imagin|eSpot}}ing things without people's permission.\\
'''Richard:''' You do it as much as I do.\\
'''Ramona:''' Of course I don't. I'm ''minutes'' older than you and much more mature.\\
[''in Ramona's ImagineSpot'']\\
'''Ramona:''' Now lads. You may stop fighting over your mistress. There's enough of me for everyone.\\
'''Lillian:''' Excuse me?
* IAmNotPretty: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=152 Lillian thinks she isn't. Roomie begs to differ.]]
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Roomie manages to save Matt from her three odd friends with "The power of BEWBS!"
* IKnowKungFu: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=240 Aikido]] actually.
* InSeriesNickname: Lillian will always be "Lazy Tyke" to Roomie. Roomie probably wasn't named such by her mother.
* JustForPun: The title of the comic is a pun on "go get a room", [[DontExplainTheJoke an expression used to communicate to a couple that their... interaction compromises the dignity of those around them]].
* JustFriends: This is what Roomie prefers her relationship with Matt to be, and is all that her relationship with Lillian amounts to so far... [[WillTheyOrWontThey Let's wait and see!]]
* LadyKillerInLove: Roomie seems to be downright enamored with Lillian. She has definitely spent more time focusing on Lazy Tyke than anyone else in the series.
* LapPillow: Roomie [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=210 provides one]] for Lillian, while she tells her story.
-->'''Roomie:''' My lap's that comfy, huh?\\
'''Lillian:''' Well, it certainly isn't ''un''comfy.\\
'''Roomie:''' Uh-huh.
* LoopholeAbuse: Roomie is dared to be clothed for 24 hours. She then spends the night wearing only a scarf.
* LovableSexManiac: Roomie, whose first reaction to a spring day is "sex in the park!"
* LoveYouAndEverybody: Almost word by word. Roomie's way of love is... complicated. Depending on how you see it, she falls somewhere between AllergicToLove and AnythingThatMoves.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Roomie, of the "very promiscuous, usually drunk and [[GoodBadGirl teasing everyone]]" variety, is actually a bit of a {{deconstruct|edTrope}}ion -- her larger-than-life character is shown to leave her a bit lonely deep down, and she feels guilty when people fall for her romantically because she doesn't feel able to return their affections the way they want. That in turn explains how, per this trope, she became attracted to a {{hikikomori}} type like Lillian: Lillian, unlike nearly everybody else, does not put Roomie on any sort of pedestal, instead seeing her as a(n often rather irritating) human being.
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Roomie seems absolutely dumbfounded that some people may misunderstand her sexual antics as anything serious.
* MilhollandRelationshipMoment: When Roomie feels guilty about having snuck into Lillian's bed after having been specifically told to sleep on the couch, Lillian, who had just had a dream about [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Roomie being the harbinger of Lillian reconnecting to the outside world]], isn't angry at all.
* TheModestOrgasm: Discussed, obliquely, when [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=248 Roomie and Lillian are drinking tea.]][[note]]"A tree" is a reference to [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=246 a remark Lillian made earlier that morning.]][[/note]]
* MushroomSamba: Jak and his (unnamed) friend get [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie22-170702170 really]] high at the party at Aggie's place.
* NakedApron: Sported by Roomie, when she's baking a cake.
* NoExceptYes: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=209 Lillian answers two questions from Roomie in this form.]]
* NotAMorningPerson: Lillian. Not really so much an afternoon, or evening person, either.
* NotWhatItLooksLike:
** Subverted on the second morning Lillian awakens in bed with Roomie.
--->'''Roomie:''' Aah, what would I give for this to be what anybody would think we're doing if they spotted us right now.\\
'''Lillian:''' ?
** ...and played straight when [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=206 Allan walks in his fiance showing his sister the engagement ring he gave her.]]
--->'''Evelyne:''' These are the times I feel like someone up there's making a joke out of my life.\\
'''Lillian:''' I'd agree with you if it weren't for the fact that I'd be agreeing with you.
* OpenMouthInsertFoot: [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=649 Oh, Matt...]]
* OneDialogueTwoConversations: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=339 When Roomie is talking to Ramona and Richard about what they will do during their estrangement from their parents, and Lillian is dreaming.]]
* OnlyOneName: Every character so far, with [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=202 only one exception]] (or two, if you count inferring her brother's last name from hers). "Roomie" is not even a name.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname:
** Roomie's real name is a mystery.
** WOC[[note]]"Wise Old Crone"[[/note]], until a flashback names her as [[spoiler:Manisa]].
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: Interestingly, it's not the onlooker, but her current lover Aggie who is embarrassed by Roomie's nakedness when she answers the door.
* ThePollyanna: Roomie. ''Nothing'' can get her down. Even encountering homophobia makes her happy, since it drives lesbians closer together.
* ThePromise: Aggie promises to never fall in love with Roomie. Take that as you wish.
* PostKissCatatonia: Turns out even Roomie is vulnerable to this, thanks to a [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=578 groggy Lillian.]]
* ReallyGetsAround: Roomie's promiscuity never ceases to astonish Matt. Especially when [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie20-168823673 she learns Aggie's name the next day after bedding her]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Roomie and Lillian have the personalities pat, reflected in red and blue color schemes (to the extent color features at all), including "Roomie's" red-tinted real world in contrast to Lillian's blue-tinted dream world.
* SandInMyEyes: Sure, Lillian. [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=628 A "cold"]].
* SarcasmFailure: During [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=345 "The Night in Furs"]] (Lillian's retelling of "The Knight in Rusty Armor"), the knight's irreverence isn't up to mocking [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=387 The Shadow of Fear and Doubt]].
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: In the early strips, Roomie had a habit of getting naked whenever she wanted to be comfortable (and it [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie19-168819096 takes three hours to get her back into clothes afterwards]]), without care of who was around. This has been dialed back now that the comic is more relationship focused.
* ShipperOnDeck: [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=465 Allan,]] for Roomie and LT.
* ShoutOut: [[ShoutOut/GoGetARoomie Has its own page]].
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Lillian, as mentioned before. It is heavily implied that sleep (or [[ExploitedTrope faked sleep]]) is an escape mechanism she resorts to whenever life and/or circumstances start getting uncomfortable.
* SpitTake: Matt, when flustered.
* SplashOfColor: Used to portray [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=647 Matt's embarrassment]].
* StepfordSmiler: Lately, the more Lillian's character develops, the more Roomie wonders whether hers is going through a similar process. Recognising that [[StaticCharacter it isn't]] affects her, which she confides in to LT, but around everyone else she keeps on smiling.
* StraightMan:
** Matt, both literally and in the trope sense.
** Lillian more prominently... though, if just about everyone other than her herself is to be believed (and even then discounting [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=218 Roomie-inspired aspects of herself]]), purely in the trope sense. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint (Well duh, she's a woman.)]]
* StunnedSilence: Roomie can only manage a [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=544 "Huh"]] when Lillian passive-aggressively shatters her world view with the news that things can change when she's not around.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Lillian's default approach towards the waking world is aloofness, but time makes it clear that she does care about the people she's with.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial:
** Allan has definitely never had dreams about "steamy encounters with pink unicorns and dragons with rows of penis on its back."
** WOC did ''not'' dream about [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=619 dragons]] after reading Tolkien books all night.
* {{Transsexual}}: Jak, at one time known as Julia, much to Roomie's shock.
* {{Tsundere}}:
** Evelyne defaults towards the assertive-tsun, but nevertheless solidly fits the trope, as becomes obvious when [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=402 she gives Steve the "let's be clear".]]
--->'''[[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=403 Allan:]]''' You're the one person I know who loves to be as clear as possible and still manages to make it confusingly ambiguous. It's adorable.
** Lillian is usually more of a SugarAndIcePersonality, but [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=64 at times drifts into tsundere territory herself.]]
--->'''Lillian:''' It's ... a feeling I've never felt before ... to want to hit someone so much.
** [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=534 Ramona shows a tendency to cross the "aloof" and "caring" streams herself]] during [[spoiler:her visit to WOC]].
--->'''Ramona:''' Look, I'm not-- Just don't thank me for anything all right? All right. Bye. Later. Maybe. Not that I want to-- [''[[LuminescentBlush blushing furiously]]''] UGH BAI.
* TwinSwitch: Richard and Ramona do this in order to seduce each other's teachers into giving them better grades.
* TheUnreveal: When Roomie is asked (somewhat obliquely) in an interview whether she likes men, she purposefully misinterprets the question. When she wakes up having apparently had a threesome with two men, she objects of the straighter one, "he's... Allan!"
* UnusualEuphemism:
** Shortly after [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=246 this exchange]], Roomie uses [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=248 "a tree"]] as one.
** Later, when Roomie is [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=261 comparing Lillian and herself to two different kinds of beer,]] Lillian asks "...so how many friends are 'drunk' with you?"
* VisualPun: It's revealed Lillian is still unconscious when it's showed that she's talking to talking screws, who tell her "[[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie103-209073642 you're screwed]]."
* WhenSheSmiles: Lillian laughing has quite an effect on [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=332 Richard and Ramona]].
-->'''Richard''': You're pretty as fuck!
* WhatWouldXDo: During the [[ParlorGames Truth or Dare]] game at Jo's bar, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=172 Lillian is given a choice by Ramona: name her first sexual partner, if any, or make a sexual innuendo on the spot]]. She manages the latter by channeling [[LovableSexManiac Roomie]].
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Roomie and Lillian.
* WithCatlikeTread: [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=600 "Ninja style!"]]
