[[http://strangefiction.net/ Strange Fiction]] is a webcomic by Nicole Attercop chronicling the lives of and interactions between a group of friends. It updates [[ScheduleSlip (in theory)]] weekly (more like monthly, lately).

----
!!Strange Fiction provides examples of:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Vincent, although he's an unusual case in that he becomes a respected part of the main cast ''without this aspect of him ever changing.''
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Eep towards Wanda, and Vincent towards Eep. The former is played for drama (usually) and the latter for comedy.
* AllMenArePerverts: Vincent is constantly throwing himself at Eep, Eep is constantly lusting after Wanda, and Robert is constantly having sex with guys he barely knows. None of these things make the characters less likeable.
* AllWomenAreLustful: Wanda makes a move on Eep without having any romantic feelings for him, even knowing that he is in love with her. She regrets it afterward, though. [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=189 Michelle]] is a better, if less prominent example.
* {{Angst}}: Eep is quite the angstmeister, especially in the flashback arc (although this is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that his mother had just died).
* ArtEvolution
* ArtShift: A [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=227 couple]] of [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=54 times,]] for [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=55 out-of-continuity gag strips.]]
* BitheWay: Vincent & possibly Wanda.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Far, ''far'' too many instances to list.
* ChivalrousPervert: Vincent stops Eep's college friend from showing the porn film he starred in to a roomful of people. [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=145 But only after the first frontal scene.]]
* CliffHanger: The Lady Attercop chooses the most inopportune times to go on hiatus.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=56 Wanda.]]
* ContinuityNod: When Wanda finds out that Eep attempted suicide when he was in high school, she [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=99 automatically assumes that it was over a girl]] and [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=100 refuses to believe any claims to the contrary.]] Later on, when she finds out that he never finished college, that's [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=168 her first guess again]]. As noted below, that strip also has a DevelopmentGag referring to the same story arc.
* CreepyDoll: Voodoo Ed.
* CrossOver: A one-sided crossover with TheClockworkCabaret.
* DevelopmentGag: [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=168 "The last time we had this conversation it felt like it lasted NINE MONTHS."]]
* DistractedByTheSexy: Eep, [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=148 here]]
* DontFearTheReaper: Lampshaded [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=63 here.]].
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Vincent.
* FanDisservice: [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=215 Merry Ball Gag-mas, everyone!]]
* ForScience: [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=210 Klaude Davenport,]] in a ''very'' in-character moment.
* GenkiGirl: Wanda, at times.
* {{Goth}}: The main cast, minus Robert.
* TheGrimReaper: Here, he's a [[DontFearTheReaper pretty nice dude]] named Greg, who often stops by to give Eep advice.
* GrossUpCloseUp: When Eep [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=150 punches a wall]].
* HandsOffParenting: Eep's father, ap[[IncrediblyLamePun parent]]ly.
* HighPressureBlood: When Eep [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=106 slits his wrist]].
* HypocriticalHumor: [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=20 Here]].
* JerkJock: One, Butch.
* MoodLighting: Parodied [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=147 here]].
* OhMyGods: Wanda's "Oh. My. Various. '''Gods.'''" when she finds out about Eep's porno. Vincent, in his first appearance, gives an "Oh my Goth!"
* PaintingTheMedium: Mr. Carbuncle speaks in a different font than everyone else.
* PerkyGoth: Wanda, oh so very much. Vincent, too, but Eep's about as big a subversion as you can get.
* PerpetualFrowner: Eep.
* ScheduleSlip: Frequently.
* ShoutOut: To Literature/HarryPotter, JohnnyTheHomicidalManiac, TheClockworkCabaret, and many others.
* SkunkStripe: Eep gives himself one later on. And promptly gets fired for it.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: The {{Steampunk}} arc.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Eep. The comic started out with an ensemble cast, but anyone coming into the story after 2007 (approximately) would never guess it.
* StalkerWithACrush: Played for humor with Vincent.
* {{Steampunk}}: The current [[WHAMEpisode WHAM Arc]].
* StraightGay: Robert; he was even a jock in high school.
* TroubledButCute: '''Eep.'''
* [[WHAMEpisode WHAM Strip]]: [[http://strangefiction.net/?p=203 "Stay unconscious for a bit, won't you?"]]
* [[WholeEpisodeFlashback Whole Arc Flashback]]: The first all-Eep arc.
