'''''[[http://worstidea.skyscrapersoup.com/ This Is the Worst Idea You've Ever Had!]]''''' ('''''Worst Idea''''' or '''''TWIYEH''''', for short) is a webcomic by Kieran Thompson, a.k.a. Kytri. It follows Nicole Masterman, an [[OurElvesAreBetter elf]] and recent college graduate, who lives in a fictional town in Virginia with her close friend, Ian, and a small dog named Nummy Muffin Coocolbutter.

''TWIYEH'' borrows its characters and some of its concepts from Kytri's first webcomic, ''The Rift'', an OrphanedSeries about a gang of bounty hunters. ''The Rift'' was ended in February 2010 due to lack of interest, but ''TWIYEH'' was started a few months later in May 2010.

While the characters from ''The Rift'' are the main players in the comic, several characters from Kytri's ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' fancomic, ''Webcomic/CuantaVida'', have been appearing as major and minor characters, earning ''TWIYEH'' a sizable fanbase.

* AbandonedInfoPage: Averted for now. New characters get added after they are introduced in the comic.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Averted for most of the characters, but played straight with Dawn.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: [[{{Catgirl}} Cynthia]] says vampires don't exist.
* AwesomeAussie: Liam, definitely.
* BadassAdorable: Tiny Carmilla, who looks like she could be broken over one knee, corsets and all? Yeah, she punches through doors and flings them into the sky.
* BadassGay: Does it really need saying?
* BiTheWay: Quite a few of the characters. According to the author, "I think of most of the characters as having kind of fluid sexualities, like real people."
* BlandNameProduct: Burrito Gong
* BloodLust: Sure, [[JustifiedTrope Rika is a vampire]], but she's the first to display a textbook example.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Abigail, Cynthia and Nicole.
* BurningWithAnger: Nicole
* {{Catgirl}}: Cynthia is a Beastman, a biological human with some animal features. Additionally, Nai'ka are a species of people with cat-like features.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Caine really has his moments.
* {{Defictionalization}}: Some of the shirts seen on the characters are [[http://kytri.spreadshirt.com/ on sale.]]
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Sergio parks like crazy, anyway.
** Gabry apparently drives like how any stereotypically Italian man would.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Caine thinks Sergio is "kinda dreamy."
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Gabry's very first appearance in the main comic has him asking a total stranger if she's okay after he sees her date pushing her around.
* FacelessEye: On or above various doors [[spoiler:and caskets]] around [[EyesDoNotBelongThere Sergio's home.]]
* {{Facepalm}}: Ian, rather epically, [[http://worstidea.skyscrapersoup.com/2010/09/23/20-punch-out-all-his-blood/ here]].
* FantasticRacism: The Nai'ka are treated like sub-human species.
-->'''Amun:''' I am not a people.
* FieryRedhead: Nicole. Literally.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: [[http://worstidea.skyscrapersoup.com/2010/07/13/9-nicole-doesnt-like-anybody/ Whatever you're picturing, stop it.]]
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Gabry smokes and he is awesome. Sergio smokes and he is... less awesome.

* HalloweenCosplay: "TWIYEH! characters dressed as [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 TF2]] characters, [[http://skyscrapersoup.com/?p=583 yep]]."
* HandsomeDevil: Sergio
* HeadPet: Nummy Muffin must be pretty well-trained to sit on Cynthia's head like that.
* HeroicAlbino: Carmilla, though it's not clear if her coloring is natural or if it's due to her Badass Vampire-ness.
** Also, we find out that [[spoiler:Jeremy]] is this trope too - it contributes to his self-esteem issues.
* InhumanableAlienRights: While it's still a crime to kill them, the Nai'ka are legally considered to be animals. They have no human rights to speak of, and the police are generally quite unwilling to investigate crimes where Nai'ka are the victims as it's considered to be "animal abuse". It doesn't help that they tend to be quite trusting and easy to exploit. Rei is a [[ZombieAdvocate fairly prominent speaker for Nai'ka rights]] as a result of all the crap his kind has been put through.
* InnocentCohabitation: Ian and Nicole.
* KillItWithFire: One possible method for killing vampires. [[spoiler:Like Sergio, for example.]]
* LastNameBasis: "Rei" is Rei's surname (his given name is Tohru).
* LesbianVampire: Carmilla
* LittleBitBeastly: The Beastmen -- biological humans with animal features. This includes Cynthia, Kimmie (the daughter of Cynthia's boss, a field mouse) and [[spoiler:Jeremy (a rabbit)]]. Apparently, there's surgery available that can make Beastmen look more like normal humans.
* MonsterRoommate: Cynthia would seem to fill this role, except Nicole and Ian aren't exactly normal humans.
* MundaneFantastic: Somewhere between this and UrbanFantasy.
* OddFriendship: It's amazing how Ian can stand Caine.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Carmilla, Sergio, and presumably, Dawn.
* OnlySaneMan: Ian has his moments.

* OurElvesAreBetter: Subverted; they don't seem to be much different from humans, for one.
* OurFairiesAreDifferent: Fae are monsters that feed on magic (and magical creatures) and are difficult to kill.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Ironically, they follow most traditional European vampire myths, which make them quite different from most modern vampires.
* PettingZooPeople: The Beastman race
* PlayingWithFire: Nicole.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The vampires. [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire At least some of them.]]
* ReusedCharacterDesign
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Nummy Muffin Coocolbutter, which is fitting, considering its namesake.
* RotatingProtagonist: Chapter 1 focuses on Nicole, and Chapter 2 focuses on Cynthia. Kytri has [[http://www.formspring.me/Kytri/q/226870563702859885 recently revealed]] the rotation for the next three chapters.

'''''Sin Pararse'''''

''Sin Pararse'' is a prequel comic about the relationship of Gabry and Liam. It is set in the ''TWIYEH'' Universe and has a darker overall tone than either ''Webcomic/CuantaVida'' or ''TWIYEH''.
----
!!''Sin Pararse'' features examples of:

* AnythingThatMoves: Gabry, who "will do pretty much anyone who is of legal age and has the mental capacity to consent."
* BadassLongcoat: Liam
* ClickHello: Page 7.
* CuteLittleFangs: Liam, in panel four of [[http://sinpararse.skyscrapersoup.com/2010/12/05/8-zombie-inspector/ this page.]]
* DarkerAndEdgier
* DramaticGunCock
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Gabry has an entirely different one here to the one he has in TWIYEH (a good compare and contrast, to show all the CharacterDevelopment he goes through) - here, he mostly refuses to talk to a therapist for fear of being considered crazy, and then gets excited and petulant about an assassination job.
* FanNickname: Gabry's fuckbuddy, Avery, is known almost exclusively as Wonderfag on the forum.
* FavouritismFlipFlop: Gabry didn't want a job until it turned out someone else was already doing it.
* FreudianCouch
* {{Jerkass}}: [[http://sinpararse.skyscrapersoup.com/2011/02/10/15-any-name-on-that-guy-is-going-to-sound-gay/ Avery.]] "You know, I don't come here to hear you talk."
* MythologyGag: In ''Cuanta Vida'', Milosh would have been the BLU Spy prior to Jordi.
* {{Prequel}}
* PrettyLittleHeadshots
* ProfessionalKiller: As part of DarkerAndEdgier, below.
* RedOniBlueOni: Gabry is carefree and teasing (Red), while Liam is serious and stoic (Blue). They even wear their respective colors, albeit it's to reference a [[Webcomic/CuantaVida certain webcomic]]. They're also a bit of an OddCouple.
* RepetitiveName: Averted with Liam Williamson. WordOfGod says his first name is not short for William, his parents weren't that cruel.
* StraightGay: WordOfGod says that most people that meet Liam don't even realize he's gay.
* TapOnTheHead
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted
** Although it's played with - Gabry does go to therapy sessions, but he doesn't really know what to talk about, there are some things he just doesn't ''want'' to talk about, he lies about important issues that may help him to talk about and he's being forced to go to them anyway. So whether the therapy would actually have a positive effect remains to be seen. WordOfGod mentions that Gabry isn't going to therapy anymore in ''Worst Idea'', so it's still unknown whether this is because the therapy actually worked or if it didn't and he found other ways of sorting through his issues.
