''[[http://www.trippingoveryou.com Tripping Over You]]'' is a SliceOfLife webcomic by Suzana H. and Owen W. that centers on Milo and Liam, two British boarding school students with radically contrasting personalities, and how they deal with being in a (mostly) secret relationship and the odd mix of humor and drama that ensues from their daily lives and their friends' too.
----
!!This webcomic contains examples of:
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted; both Milo and Liam turn out to have no prior sexual experience and have to consult the Internet about how to perform TheirFirstTime.
* AllergicToLove: Archie nearly has an apoplectic fit when it is suggested he might be left alone with the girl he is currently on a date with.
* AllGaysLoveTheater: Milo, who receives homophobic insults from other students for his participation in theatre alone. Subverted with Liam, who is indifferent about the school plays until he learns that Milo is acting in them.
* AllThereInTheManual: Understanding the first pages and the comments on them gets a lot easier if you have the cast page open.
* AltText
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Milo. WordOfGod says that he's half-Lebanese.
* ArtShift: With the start of Chapter 5, the comic is now in full color.
* BathroomStallGraffiti: Appears in [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/unfortunate-choice-of-words/ this comic]], though similar easter eggs appear frequently in backgrounds throughout the series.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Liam has [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/an-excellent-actor/ specific demands]] in order to keep their relationship secret, and is [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/brace-yourself-liam/ unpleasantly surprised]] when Milo complies.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Milo and Liam. Although once they get over the first couple of humps in their relationship, they're [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/glad-you-came/ actually closer]] to being SickeninglySweethearts in private.
* BerserkButton: Milo and DirtyDancing.
* BiTheWay: Liam fits either in this camp or IfItsYouItsOkay with Milo; Milo is the only person he shows any attraction to in the comic, and WordOfGod is that he's either uncertain or uncomfortable labelling himself.
* CampGay: Milo fits the bill, despite his feeble attempts to [[FlyingUnderTheGaydar tone down his camp in public]]. Doesn't stop his friends from insisting that he's "good with girls", for some reason.
* CannotSpitItOut: Milo. PlayedWith as he does says it (and then some) in the first chapter, but it turns out it took him over two years to get there.
* CavemenVsAstronautsDebate: Time travel paradoxes (or [[YouAlreadyChangedThePast lack thereof]]) are serious business.
* ChivalrousPervert: Milo constantly teases and flirts with Liam before and after they get together, but when Liam asks him to cut down on the PDA he fulfills his request so well that Liam comes to regret it, and ''Liam'' is actually the one to bring up the topic of TheirFirstTime because Milo didn't think he would be interested in it.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Milo resembles {{Mika}} a lot. Ostensibly [[ShrugofGod neither confirmed nor denied]] [[CouldSayItBut by the authors]].
* ComingOutStory
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Inviting Milo on Archie's date was supposed to help how?
** He apparently assumed Milo was "good with girls". [[CampGay Umm...]]
* DoggedNiceGuy: Milo to Liam in the first chapter. Archie can also be interpreted as this towards Chloe.
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Liam, repeatedly. He's shown in the flashbacks to have started out with long hair only to cut it off because his father "said [[LongHairIsFeminine it made me look like a poof]]" cut off his long hair. In the present day, he confirms that he's growing his hair out but that his father wants him to cut it again
* ForgetsToEat: Liam has shown tendencies to do this.
* GeekyTurnOn: For Milo, [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/jumped-on-it/ time travel]] [[http://trippingoveryou.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/liloyoung.png paradoxes]].
* KissKissSlap: [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/that-enthusiastic/ Kind of a]] MomentKiller.
* KissingUnderTheInfluence: Milo is partial to a little liquid courage, which Liam is quick to point out. That doesn't stop him from kissing back on two separate occasions.

* HandBehindHead
* {{Hypocrite}}: Liam invites Milo to Archie's date because he's "good with girls", then blows up at him for demonstrating it.

* LonelyRichKid: It's implied Liam's been seeing a therapist for some time before the strip begins.
* LongingLook: It takes Liam a few seconds to detach his gaze from Milo's [[IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn unintentional tonguework]].
** Milo lights up any time he sees Liam.
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage: Liam at first. "No more... staring at me... with those exceptionally blue eyes."
* MilkingTheGiantCow: Milo is an actor, even when he's on his own.
* MustHaveCaffeine: According to his description on the cast page, Liam's blood 'is more caffeine than plasma'. He also appears to forget an entire conversation held before his morning coffee.
* NoodleIncident: Whatever Zeigler had to do with thumbtacks, it's blackmail-worthy.
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Milo pretty much takes any opportunity he can to play with Liam's hair.
* ObliviousToLove: Liam in the first chapter.
* OpenMindedParent: Milo's father, who doesn't bat an eyelash to the news that his son is dating Liam. He even likes ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''!
* OppositesAttract
* PuppyDogEyes: Milo has this down.
* RelationshipUpgrade
* RichBitch: [[SassyBlackWoman Noel]]. Liam shares a lot of her attitudes on social status, though that might just be [[SubordinateExcuse because it's Noel]].
* SarcasmMode: Few things [[DeadpanSnarker Liam]] says are ''not'' sarcastic; however, an eye-roll frequently lets the reader know his intentions.
* SayItWithHearts: Milo towards Liam at times. Liam begins getting on it too as their relationship deepens.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: Penny and Kat.
* SecretRelationship
* ShutUpKiss: While Liam is in the middle of promising brimstone and hellfire if his father finds out.
* {{Socialite}}: Some people want to be doctors when they grow up. Noel wants to be a debutante.
* StealthInsult: Milo to Chloe, before he figures out she's on a date with Archie, not with Liam.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: Liam's zipper is affected by Milo's proximity as much as the rest of him in [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/might-want-me-too/ these]] [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/that-enthusiastic/ strips]].
* ThatMakesMeFeelAngry:
** {{Subverted}} in Liam's [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/needs-a-spotlight/ therapy session]].
** {{Lampshaded}} in his [[http://trippingoveryou.com/comic/any-reaction/ subsequent conversation]] with Milo.
* TenMinutesInTheCloset: Milo and Liam's version of this in the bathroom, which ends rather [[KissKissSlap unsatisfactorily]].
* TheirFirstTime: In chapter 5.
* TheChessmaster: Penny, who orchestrates a meeting between Milo and Liam at the Halloween party in spite of Liam's initial refusals.
* TheyDo: The webcomic arguably finds its groove after Milo and Liam get together and the focus shifts to showing how their relationship affects their daily lives and also developing more of their relatives and friends.
* TransparentCloset: Milo keeps his so clean it sparkles. [[spoiler:It also turns out that Archie caught on to Liam's relationship with him so easily that he didn't even think it ''was'' a secret.]]
* TwiceShy: Archie and Chloe. They are a match made in the most awkward of heavens.
* UptightLovesWild
