''Love and Tentacles'' is a comic by Creator/{{Humon}}, of ''Webcomic/{{Niels}}'' and ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'' fame. It takes place in an alternate universe in which humans coexist with the Tentacula, a race of, well, tentacle monsters ([[FantasticSlurs but don't call them that]]). The central characters are Tom (human) and Frida (Tentacula), a committed couple coping with the fact that their relationship challenges social norms -- both the ones they encounter in public and the ones they have internalized in their own heads.

The comic was [[http://humon.deviantart.com/journal/How-tentaculas-are-made-346028194 discontinued due to Humon's personal loss of interest in the series.]] However, Humon later decided to not only give it a proper ending but [[http://scandia.store/product/the-love-and-tentacles-book release the series collected into book form]].
!!''Love and Tentacles'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AnythingThatMoves: Mona, Frida's coworker who is "sex-crazy even by Tentacula standards".
* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:WordOfGod [[http://humon.deviantart.com/journal/How-tentaculas-are-made-346028194 confirms it]], although it's not exactly a heartwarming tale.]]
* BizarreAlienBiology: Tentaculas have three different types of tentacles, and a split tongue. They also practice external fertilization, much to Tom's {{Squick}}.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Frida and her friend, Mona. Frida's ex is a male version.
* FantasticRacism: Humans and Tentacula seem to have equal status in society, but mixed relationships are not yet fully accepted by either side.
* FreakyIsCool: According to [[http://humon.deviantart.com/art/A-true-friend-122362855?q=gallery%3Ahumon%2F9478119&qo=10 Nick]].
* InterspeciesRomance: The point of the comic.
* MultipleChoicePast: Humon considered several possible origins for the Tentacula, from the [[AlienInvaders extraterrestrial]] to the [[OurDemonsAreDifferent infernal]]. She eventually decided that they had been created in a lab and eventually freed and inducted into society.
* NiceGuy: Tom and Frida, to the point of being the straight man of their various friends and coworkers.
* NonhumansLackAttributes: Frida has no nipples.
* OrphanedSeries: Formerly applied to this series, which was discontinued because Humon herself got bored with it. [[AvertedTrope Later,]] she decided to give it a proper send-off, compiling the series into a book with new comics bringing the story to a close.
* OurNudityIsDifferent: Frida is embarrassed to discover she's been [[http://fav.me/d1ymfmq waving her smaller tentacles around]] in front of Tom's mother.
