-->'''VGG:''' You're being awful observant.\\
'''Edward:''' I'm just sharp like that, I guess.\\

* EvilLaugh: In [[http://www.cha0sden.com/Life.php?comic=334 "Good End"]], Felicia breaks out with one of these.

* ManipulativeBastard: Felicia worries that she is behaving like this at one point. Because she basically is.
* MeaningfulRename: Natalie renamed herself Felicia because Felicia means "happiness".
* NotSoStoic: Approximately the only time Edward has a major reaction to anything is when Video Game Guy tears up one of his drawings.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Edward is not named Edward -- that name was a guess Felicia made that [[ExtremeDoormat he rolled with]].
** [[spoiler:Madison]] sabotages one of Felicia's gambits by [[spoiler:telling Edward what she's up to]].
** [[spoiler:Edward's roommate Lex]] sabotages another by acting directly rather than simply reacting.
* StepfordSmiler: Felicia's happiness is largely a mask she adopts to force herself to be happy.
