SliceOfLife FurryWebComic focused on the lives of a gay male couple, Richard "Vinci" Nicolaides (GratuitousGreek: Ριχάρδ Νικολαΐδης) and Artisan (Arty) P Sunspot, living in the fictional town of Ballpointe, Pennsylvania. Consult your physician before attempting to read this webcomic, and have [[TastesLikeDiabetes your dentist on speed-dial]].

On December 8th, 2013, the comic was restarted, with old strips starting from the very beginning posted on Sundays (and later a Sunday/Thursday schedule) along with a commentary on each one.

The restarted strips can be found [[http://www.vincifruit.com/ here,]] while the archives can be found [[http://www.pholph.com/strip.php?id=4 here.]]

!!This comic provides examples of:

* AmnesiacLover: the point of one storyline. [[spoiler: A knock to the head makes Vinci forget everything that has happened since he moved from Greece to the United States, like learning the English language or being in love with Arty. What makes it worse for Arty is that pre-immigration Vinci was apparently kinda homophobic.]]
* AnimalStereotypes: ''SHINEE!''
* BarefootCartoonAnimals
* CampGay: Arty could be the poster child for this, in the FurryComic world. Though Vinci's outrageous girliness definitely counts too.
* ChocolateBaby: A variation; Vinci's parents are legally purebred chihuahuas, both of whom had "[[ArtMajorBiology recessive raccoon genes]]" from way back, producing a pureblooded raccoon son who also could have legally registered as a purebred chihuahua.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Ms. [=DeWalt=] occasionally produces material for ''Webcomic/{{Jack|DavidHopkins}}'', often with much a more violent and depressing style than the normal comic material, and WordOfGod says this is canon. Note that even these DarkerAndEdgier bits are still extremely cutesy, and full of the kind of melodramatic {{Narm}} that would not be out of place in a ''GundamWing'' [[YaoiFangirl yaoi]] fic, so "dark and edgy" is kind of relative.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Vinci. And Vinci doesn't even do this ''on purpose'' -- most strangers will still confuse him for a girl. At one point Vinci even ''shaved his head'', and someone still thought he was [[SineadOConnor Sinead O'Cooner]].
* {{Gayngst}}:
** Vinci exhibits this trope often, especially when the couple's more conservative neighbours show off their discontent for the homosexual duo.
** Arty goes into this one as well whenever his family comes up: he blames his father's suicide on the fact that he'd come out to him earlier that day.
* GuestStrip: Frequently has other artists post guest strips. Which can cause some confusion as some guest pages are more canon than others.
* InterspeciesRomance: Many, particularly the titular couple.
* LethalChef: Vinci, at one point, made cookies that got mistaken for fish, when the character had a {{crossover}} with another [[FurryFandom furry]] {{webcomic}}, [[http://www.doemain.com A Doemain of Our Own]] (ended). In general, the results of Vinci's cooking are usually depicted with a cloud bearing a skull and crossbones (like the poison symbol) on the "scent cloud" for a reason. Later updates have explained why: [[spoiler: it may be caused by difficulties reading English recipes; he's prepared food from an all-Greek recipe book and had it turn out just fine. This would explain why he believes his food should turn out edible and tasty, though - after all, before he came to America, ''it did''; he's just been overestimating his ability to coherently read English.]]
* MisterSeahorse: A literal example with the anthro seahorse, Arkie Illions; "The only guy I know who's so braindead, ''he'' was the one who came back pregnant after a wild party."
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Vinci's mother named him Richard Nicolaides after "the sexiest man alive" -- Creator/RichardGere. Vinci's father is [[CrowningMomentOfFunny speechless]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: No matter what people think Vinci's actual gender is, they almost all think he's a kid.
* TheDitz: Arkie Illions.
* StraightGay: Although Vinci isn't specifically gay (WordOfGod says he doesn't pay much attention to physical details), at least in regards to his relationship with Arty he technically qualifies.
** Which is a particularly amusing example, because 9 times out of 10 [[{{DudeLooksLikeALady}} he's mistaken for a girl.]]
* TerribleArtist: Arty's attempt at artwork, compared to Vinci's.
