David Gonterman, aka Daveykins, [=FoxFire=], or David Foxfire, is a fan-fiction author and artist who is known mainly for the controversial "American Kitsune" fan fiction story and the furry themed ''[=FoxFire=]/Scarlet P.I.'' webcomic series.

Dating back to 1995, he has produced a number of mind-numbingly convoluted fan fiction X-Over stories. His stories involve ''Anime/SailorMoon'', ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', and ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series, which in his fan-fiction universe all take place at the same time. King of the self-insert fan fic, he was one of the first Sailor Moon fan fiction writers to insert himself as Serena's one true love. He also gained infamy among fans of the show's gay cast members; in one of his more infamous stories ("American Kitsune"), they died at his character's hands while his insert character made a homophobic rant justifying their deaths. He is also notoriously thin-skinned (he once wrote a story where he beat up poor Mary Jo Pehl of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' fame, who had the misfortune of being a stand-in for his legion of critics).

He has also created a furry-themed webcomic series called "[=FoxFire=]", which was later retooled into "Scarlet P.I." He also [[http://www.commuterbarnacle.com/gonterman/APRILFOO.GIF created a guest strip]] for ''ItsWalky''. (David Willis himself created [[http://itswalky.tumblr.com/post/31013876966/what-about-the-strip-you-did-for-gonterman-its-been-a a guest strip for Gonterman]] as well, but the former considers their strip-swap an OldShame)

He seems to attend the Creator/ShojiKawamori school of continuity, i.e. pick and choose whatever you want from the previous stories and throw the rest out. As such, readers of his work should expect {{Kudzu Plot}}s.

Easily as notorious in the 90s and early 2000s as [[Webcomic/{{Sonichu}} Christian Weston Chandler]] is today, he's managed to fade from the public eye, mostly by [[CharacterDevelopment growing up substantially]] in the intervening years and [[AlwaysABiggerFish just being outright outdone by the aforementioned...individual]].


[[folder:'''''The Davey Crockett Trilogy''''']]

A trilogy of tangentially linked stories incorporating the character of David "Davey Crockett" Kintobor into the world of SonicTheHedgehog.

''[[http://www.tuxedojack.com/godawful/nauseating/gonterman/gonterman-Piasa.txt The Piasa Monster]]''

''[[http://www.commuterbarnacle.com/gonterman/text.html Blood and Metal]]''

''[[http://www.commuterbarnacle.com/gonterman/text.html Sailor Moon: American Kitsune]]''

The most infamous story of his works. ''Anime/SailorMoon'' meets ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' meets ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' meets anything else Gonterman could think of at the time. Davie meets Sailor Moon and the Power Rangers and rants about how he hates gay people while gleefully murdering the gay villains from Sailor Moon.


[[folder:'''''Scarlet P.I.''''']]

Two separate but interrelated strips. The first series, which was named ''[[http://www.furnation.com/FoxStudios/archive/ComicStrip/FCS.html FoxFire]]'', ran for 240 strips before being dropped without a resolution. After a recent comic convention, Jim Goodlow comes home to find a package with a female fursuit in it. He's surprised to find out that it's a sentient creature and needs to a symbiotic relationship to survive. HilarityEnsues as the suit (originally named Susan, before being changed to Scarlet) becomes Jim's crime fighting alter ego as he continues his career as a professional cartoonist. Things get a little confusing from that point on.

In 2004, a total ReTool and reboot was started under the name of ''[[http://daveykinsfoxfire.deviantart.com/gallery/#Scarlet-PI-Strips Scarlet PI]]'', with there being 123 strips. Jim Goodlow reappears, but is changed from a cartoonist to a prodigy cop that can't get a job. (Interestingly enough, he's also StraightGay, but it instead just feels like repentance on Gonterman's part.) After failing to find a job, he happens upon a box dumped near his apartment. It contains an advanced prototype female fox fursuit, which was created by a corrupt corporation (not an AlienInvasion this time, [[BenevolentAlienInvasion Benevolent]] or not). Of course, he leaps right into it due to wanting to seduce men, investigating the corporation as an obligatory exchange.


[[folder:'''''The Packbellverse''''']]

These stories and comics initially seem unrelated, but they are set in the same universe- there are many crossovers of the various characters in other stories. Most of them incorporate the character of Adam Packbell, if at least only tangentially.

''[[http://www.foxfirestudios.net/packblog/WebBook/index.php?page=6 Lost Boy Found]]''

A self-published ''Disney/PeterPan'' fanfic about a Lost Boy named Adam Packbell. The advertising blurb claims that it is "equal parts autobiography, adventure story, and ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}''-style parody of every recent novel set in Neverland including the official sequel". Adam Packbell is a central character in many of the Planewalker-verse comics and books.

''[[http://gonterman.kicks-ass.net/displaystrip.php?comic=3&strip=1 Night Soldiers]]''

A ''Anime/SailorMoon'' inspired story about a young witch in a southern community. After Sue "comes out of the broom closet", life goes well for her as everybody accepts it. However, her lifestyle is threatened: when a [[HornyDevils succubus]] attacks and kills a couple people, she is the only one able to stop it. It abruptly ends before she starts her journey, so what happens is unknown. Like ''Fauna Force'', this was meant to steal the audience from its source of inspiration.

''[[http://gonterman.kicks-ass.net/displaystrip.php?comic=10&strip=1 Baka Breakers]]''

The plotless adventures of a robotic foxgirl and [[AuthorAvatar her boyfriend.]] Difficult to describe.

''Livewire Latte''

A continuation of Baka Breakers, with Adam Packbell (See Lost Boy Found- it's the same character) running a coffee shop in a small town roughly 70 miles from Vegas, or 'Sin City' as Gonterman loves calling it. Primarily a SliceOfLife comic, [[MundaneFantastic except]] for the [[RobotGirl android]] {{catgirl}} Tara and the [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom anthropomorphic mice]] running around; as well as the hints to Adam's magical side. Arguably half-decent for the first three dozen pages or so, ''precisely'' due to its less ambitious, slice-of-life style... at least until the TokenMinority Japanese girl comes in.

''[[http://gonterman.kicks-ass.net/displaystrip.php?comic=12&strip=1 Planeswalker]]''

An original story based loosely on ''MagicTheGathering'' done in a MagicalGirl style. In ancient times, a portal between Earth and Dominaria was briefly opened and then sealed off, leaving behind artifacts which contained the souls of mages. In modern times, a young girl named Jamie came in contact with one of these books and was infused with a spirit of a Planeswalker. The symbiotic creature now acts as a paragon of justice... when not just being a giant {{Jerkass}}. Adam Packbell appears in a ''Franchise/YuGiOh''-esque tournament based on Magic, and Richard Kronos and Sue from Night Soldiers appear in the audience.


[[folder:'''''Other Gonterman Works''''']]

''Fauna Force'' issues [[http://www.furnation.com/FoxStudios/archive/Ff01/f0101.html one,]] [[http://www.furnation.com/FoxStudios/archive/Ff02/f0201.html two]] and [[http://www.furnation.com/FoxStudios/archive/Ff03/f031.html three.]]

Gonterman's response to Sonic the Hedgehog, ''Fauna Force'' starred Johnathan Brisby, originally introduced in the ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''[=/=]''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'' crossover story ''The Rangers of NIMH''. Johnathan, an accomplished street magician, stumbles upon the Animaster, [[CatsAreMean an evil lion]] who has recently turned a small cadre of humans into animals via a process known as 'furricization' (a none-too-subtle play on roboticization from the Sonic universe) and takes them in to form a team that can fight against the Animaster. It was intended to "steal" the audience from ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog''...

''[[http://killass.lardpirates.com/gont/commuterbarnacle/kissingcontest.html The Kissing Contest]]''

An inept Disney ScriptFic of sorts, which includes Gonterman's self-insert being praised by Disney executives as an insightful genius for portraying Disney/{{Pocahontas}} as a "donamatrix" in his fanfiction and a paragraph-long sidenote about how none of the Disney characters actually died in their films.

''[[http://killass.lardpirates.com/gont/commuterbarnacle/441.html Kitsune .44]]''

Scott Trucker, a Texas Ranger, gets sent back in time to Feudal Japan after a tornado scoops him up. He becomes part of a war against another time traveler that has taken over a sizable portion of Japan. As the site hosting the comic points out, the self-insert isn't named after Gonterman this time, but the hairstyle is a dead giveaway.

''[=NiGHTS=]: The Third Dreamer''

A rare Gontercomic about ''VideoGame/NightsIntoDreams'', ostensibly a spinoff from Archie's own ''[=NiGHTs=]'' miniseries.. The plot does not seem to exist until about two pages before the comic abruptly stops, when the titular 'third dreamer' is revealed. Notable for containing the most strangely rugged Gonterman insert known to date. Who beats Charles Barkley in a one-on-one basketball game and dunks right over his head. Seriously. He also has an [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v322/puppet_chaos/ALI-AL-GONTERCHEZ.jpg uncanny resemblance]] to Ali Al-Saachez of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' fame. Hide your women, lock your doors and get in the Gundam!

''[[http://killass.lardpirates.com/gont/commuterbarnacle/nitro1.html NiTRO]]''

David Gonterman gets fed up with the [=MSTs=] of his work, creating a reactionary comic in which he [[strike:[[NeverSayDie defeats]]]] brutally kills his most vocal opponents and takes over the Satellite of Love. Also includes a bunny {{Sexbot}} for no real reason but AuthorAppeal. The source of the infamous "Clinton Jobs".

''[[http://killass.lardpirates.com/gont/commuterbarnacle/RANGERS.txt The Rangers of NIMH]]''

Medical equipment is being stolen by Nimnul. After meeting up with Johnathan Brisby, the Rescue Rangers go out to stop him. Pretty much the gold standard for both [[RougeAnglesOfSatin blind trust in the spellchecker and absolutely no proofreading whatsoever]], its first sentence reads "The Ranger's where flowing a leaded of break-ins." Usual tripe that wouldn't be too exceptional except for the fact that it introduced Johnathan Brisby, who became Gonterman's mascot of sorts.

''[[http://waggoner.lardpirates.com/d/spank/1376/mist+on+the+ghost+planet++sailor+moon+usa+chapter+1+prelude Sailor Moon USA]]''

After the US cancellation of ''Anime/SailorMoon'', David ends up catching said character after an explosion in Japan launched her across the Pacific. An AdaptationDistillation of ''Sailor Moon: American Kitsune''. Note: link is to a "FanArt" {{MST}}, since the unaltered artwork is generally considered to be lost.

''[[http://killass.lardpirates.com/gont/commuterbarnacle/sally1.html Sally Protest]]''

A reactionary comic made when he discovered Archie Comics' plan to kill off Sally in the ''SonicTheHedgehog'' comic continuity. After assigning his own sense of outrage at the idea to, uh, everyone else in the world, David consoles an outraged Sally, offering a solution. Famous that it got ''Ken Penders''' attention.

''[[http://killass.lardpirates.com/gont/commuterbarnacle/SONIC199/index.html The Mobius Chronicles]]''

Sort of the follow-up to ''Sally Protest'', ''The Mobius Chronicles'' is an alternate continuity that diverges from issue 47 of the official ''[[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' comic book. Naturally, Gonterman promptly makes himself the main character. {{MST}}ed [[http://waggoner.lardpirates.com/d/spank/1294/mist+on+the+ghost+planet++sonic+the+mobius+chronicles+chapter+1+prelude here]], [[http://waggoner.lardpirates.com/d/spank/1325/mist+on+the+ghost+planet++sonic+the+mobius+chronicles+chapter+2+prelude here]] and [[http://waggoner.lardpirates.com/d/spank/1355/mist+on+the+ghost+planet++sonic+the+mobius+chronicles+chapter+3+prelude here]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXYk2EGG0Hg Excerpts from Foxfire]] (puppetchaos)



!!Gonterman's work provides examples of:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: The [[DeadpanSnarker MiSTing]] of Kitsune .44 reluctantly admits this [[http://www.commuterbarnacle.com/gonterman/4417.html on occasion]].
* AerithAndBob: With so many crossovers, it's inevitable. A good example: Davey and Lord Zedd.
* AuthorAvatar: Nearly every main male protagonist. Even a few female ones, too.
* AlienInvasion: The villains in the original Scarlet P.I.
* AllThereInTheManual: Gonterman gives a lot of supplemental information in random-side stories, blog entries, pages buried within his websites, scribbled notes on sketches of characters, and in descriptions on Website/DeviantART submissions. Gee, it'd sure be handy for him to tell us this stuff in the stories, eh?
* AuthorAppeal: Anthropomorphic foxes, robot girls, masks, mimes, clowns and mind control.
** High heels and [[OfCorsetsSexy corsets]] on his women, all the time. Even if it does not make sense.
** Take some Sonic the Hedgehog, put in a self insert, a lil' Sailor Moon, just a pinch of ''TabletopGame/{{Battletech}}'' and a healthy shake of Power Rangers... half bake for three weeks..
* AuthorFilibuster: Taken to the extreme in American Kitsune, where Davey-kins rants about how homosexuals made his life a living hell. Adam Packbell has 'blog entries' in the Lost Boy Found novel where he rants about Ritalin; and goes out of his way to call [=MSTings=] "troll fanfiction" during a ''court case''. The weird thing is that the people who made his life a so-called living hell were just high school kids calling him gay, not actual gay people. It's like having high cholesterol and blaming it on clowns. Gonterman later recanted his positions on this subject.
** It sort of ''does'' [[InsaneTrollLogic make sense]] if you see it as him blaming gay people for giving the high school bullies the reasons to bully him. Meaning, if gay people didn't exist, the bullies would not have any reason to call him gay.
* AscendedFanboy: David in ''Sailor Moon USA''.
* AntiHero: Richard Cronos and a few of his 'edgier' self-inserts appear to be attempts at Antiheroes, but they're more like Disney Anti-Heroes.
* BecomingTheMask: Most "Zoot" wearers start to lose their original identity. Even Jim and Scarlet seem to mush into a single being.
* BiTheWay: Copper Mystrian ...maybe.
* BrotherSisterIncest: Davey and Usagi in BAM 1.0
* TheCameo: Shall we list the ways?
** President UsefulNotes/BarackObama appears in BAM 2.0.
** Gonterman has a less-than-flattering cameo of his real self when Adam looks through a magic mirror in Livewire Latte. Characters from other comics and stories appear in short cameos in both Planeswalker and Livewire Latte.
** In Scarlet P.I. 1.0, Rael the Transvestite Bunny is based on a ''[[http://raelbunny.deviantart.com/ real person]]'' ('''Do not click if you are faint of heart, or [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner faint of butt]]''')
** Many celebrities in Scarlet P.I. 1.0
* CanonWelding: Due to the MegaCrossover tendencies, it appears that everything takes place on one big world, with a few alternate dimensions thrown in. It doesn't make it any easier that he frequently reuses character names and appearances, making it unclear if it's supposed to be the same character at different stages of life, or not.
* CharacterFilibuster: ''The Rangers of NIMH'' has [[WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers Rescue Rangers]] expressing Gonterman's thoughts on the then-current state of Creator/{{Disney}}.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve: Adam uses this in ''Lost Boy Found'' to bring the fairy he found back to life, albeit using a computer program to find websites via a search engine about the belief in fairies being true and to make a clap sound through the speakers.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: In both ''Scarlet PI'' comics, It's the sentient fursuits that have the powers, not the people wearing them. The wearers just serve as a [[HumanResources glorified power battery]].
* CurbStompBattle: The typical result of Gonterman's self-insert entering a battle.
* {{Determinator}}: Let's be honest here, Gonterman himself. Only a Determinator would have the will to keep on doing what he does, even if he's near-universally regarded as bad.
* DoNotTouchTheFunnelCloud: The opening of ''Kitsune .44''.
* [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Fail Has Standards]]: Even David Gonterman thinks that [[{{Sonichu}} Christian Weston Chandler]] is a disgrace.
--> ''"Tell me about it on CWC. Geez, when you have'' me ''facepalming at you, you have got to be pretty bad off."''
* ExpansionPackPast: Davey and ED.
* ForTheEvulz: Some of his villains don't seem to have much of a motive other than making people miserable.
* {{Flanderization}}: Most of the characters from the external canons only had one or two of their character traits kept intact, being defined exclusively by the traits that Gonterman viewed as most vital. Even his original characters tend to flatten over time.
* UsefulNotes/FurryFandom: Scarlet PI To the max.
* GiftedlyBad
* GoodBadGirl: Scarlet.
* GratuitousSpanish: Robbie from ''Lost Boy Found''. Even though English is apparently his first language.
* HandsInPockets: Much like Creator/RobLiefeld, Gonterman avoids drawing feet whenever possible. The only exception he makes is for high-heeled boots, as the AuthorAppeal gives him enough motivation to finish.
* HollywoodCyborg: Many, many instances.
* HumanResources: The evil Zoots in ''Scarlet P.I.'' use humans as glorified batteries and memory storage. Good zoots are partners.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: In the original Sonic fanfic version of ''Blood and Metal Alpha'', the chapters were called "Zones", and divided further into "Acts", much like the classic Sonic games.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: In ''Sailor Moon: American Kitsune'' Part Two, Davey shoots and destroys Lord Zedd's throne on the Moon from the Earth, using a double-barreled sawed-off shotgun fired at a soda can launched into the air, while Lord Zedd is sitting in said throne. In spite of this, Zedd is left completely unharmed.
* InformedFlaw: In the remake of BAM, Gonterman informs us in supplemental materials that Eric likes beer a little too much. This doesn't seem to play at all into the plot.
* {{Interquel}}: There's a few side-stories on one of Gonterman's site that appears to take place sometime during the new series of BAM. The ''Scarlet P.I.'' novel is one of these, too.
* InstantFanClub: Scarlet gains ''a lot'' of fans overnight.
* KudzuPlot: Do we REALLY need to explain this one?
* LukeIAmYourFather: Davey's father is Robotnik. Averted in the remake.
* KavorkaMan: Unintentionally evoked in pretty much everything he creates.
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: Blatantly avoided in Scarlet P.I. 1.0
* MagicNegro: A pseudo-example happens in the BAM remake, as the scientist who transforms Eric and gives him his powers is black.
** In the old version of Blood and Metal, Old Man Coyote, while not human, is a deity from a 'mystical' non-western culture, and helps give Davey, a white American, some of his powers.
* MegaCrossover: Everything is liable to crossover with everything else.
* MightyWhitey
** Semi-Justified in Kitsune .44, as possession of a [[HandCannon hefty revolver]] and 1990's knowledge in feudal Japan would give you some advantages.
** Davey/Eric in BAM crossing over from America to another world and saving everyone. Made even more blatant in the rewrite, as Eric is essentially ''creating an alternate-universe United States''.
* MindControl: Evil Zoots in Scarlet P.I. get hosts through this. One of them even has hypno eyes. Copper Mystrian gets a lot of mileage out of this, too.
* MoralDissonance: Many, many times. Blatant examples include Davey Crockett murdering a bunch of homosexuals, or Copper Mystrian creating a hypnotized personal army of young girls, some of whom serve as a harem of sorts. In general, sometimes the reasons the heroes fight, the things they do or what they say just doesn't quite match up to most of the reader's ideals, and even if they do, it's oftentimes handled in a way to be off-putting anyway.
* MundaneFantastic: Lost Boys, fairies, android foxgirls and other blatantly magical and science-fiction elements exist in a world that's more or less the 'real world.'
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Davey's cybernetic arm, Ed's closet, and many miscellaneous objects that Davey has collected. Scarlet becomes a psionic capable of teleportation within one strip in Scarlet P.I. 1.0
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Davey Crockett himself in BAM, but also the introduction of the Sailor Senshi to the Morphing Grid and the highly modified Battletech robots.
* OldShame: Gonterman ''hates'' BAM 1.0 and American Kitsune. He's also tried to erase most of his older works from the internet, though archives of them stick around thanks to his {{Hatedom}}.
* OnlySixFaces: More like only two, male and female. Maybe three if you throw in "furry." Only one set of eyes, that's for sure.
* OrphanedSeries: He rarely finishes anything. Only Lost Boy Found got finished, and the original Scarlet P.I. had a pseudo-ending where Scarlet rides off into the sunset, or in this case, the furry convention circuit.
* OutOfCharacter: All the ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' characters, but especially Usagi. Rampant elsewhere.
* PetHomosexual: Jim Goodlow in Scarlet PI 2.0. Scarlet gets the attention, Jim's stuck in the suit.
* PowersAsPrograms
* PuppeteerParasite: Good Zoots get permission from their hosts. Evil zoots don't.
** Many others appear across the Gontercanon, even (supposedly) heroic ones.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Scarlet Foxfire has a daughter in Scarlet PI who just randomly shows up.
* ReusedCharacterDesign: Reuse of names, character archetypes and designs is frequently common and intentional.
* RidingIntoTheSunset: Scarlet/Jim and Sarah in the "end" of Scarlet PI 1.0. Actually, it's the furry convention circuit and they're driving a car but... yeah.
* RobotGirl: Roll-chan in ''[=NiTRO=]'' and Tara Kit in ''Baka Breakers'' and ''Lost Boy Found''. The latter also mentions one named Aline Rabbit who used to work in Las Vegas's Red Light District.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: ''The Rangers of NIMH''.
--> "The Ranger's where flowing a leaded of break-ins."
* SelfDeprecation: Gonterman openly mocks himself now.
* {{Sexbot}}: Gonterman loves this trope, nearly every more-recent creation of his includes at least one. The most obvious is Aline in Baka Breakers, who is a former robo-hooker who kills terrorists in Afghanistan ... or something.
* ShoutOut: To many things, perhaps even TV Tropes in BAM 2.0. Here's a fun game: take a shot with each new reference to a completely different canon. Your liver won't make it through to the end.
* ShowingOffTheNewBody: Scarlet, after Jim becomes her host.
* SliceOfLife: Livewire Latte and Baka Breakers, but Livewire moreso.
* SlipknotPonytail: On [[http://www.commuterbarnacle.com/gonterman/4416.html this page]] Gen's braids become un-braided between panels. As the commentary points out, this is clearly a conscious stylistic decision.
* StraightGay: Jim Goodlow in the ''Scarlet P.I.'' reboot.
* TakeOverTheWorld: The motive of many villains.
* He's a cartoonist who needs a job! She's an alien symbiotic costume! TheyFightCrime.
* TheRemake: Blood and Metal, Scarlet P.I. Other stories and comics have recieved psuedo-remakes
* ThirdPersonPerson: David Gonterman sometimes talks about David Gonterman as if David Gonterman is a different David Gonterman than the other David Gonterman.
* TokenMinority
** Gina the hospital intern and Professor Obacain (lolwut) in BAM 2.0. Both are black.
** Adam's gang in Lost Boy Found cover a variety of races and backgrounds.
** Jim Goodlow in Scarlet P.I. 2.0 is [[PetHomosexual gay]]
** There's a Muslim in Baka Breakers, but he seems to be a subversion of this trope due to his strange behavior. Once he jokingly suggests to Davey that he'd could get Allah to call in a jihad; making it sound like a [[HolyHandGrenade divine airstrike]]. The biggest part of his characterization seems to be that he's just a weird, sarcastic guy.
* TrappedInThePast: The driving point of ''Kitsune .44''.
* TrueCompanions: Gonterman's main characters will typically have a group that is closely associated with them, but it's most noticeable in ''Lost Boy Found'' where Adam's gang is almost always together, even going to [[PeterPan Neverland]] together.
* TheRemake: Blood and Metal, Scarlet P.I. Other stories and comics have received pseudo-remakes
* UnsoundEffect: [[http://www.thoughtviper.com/smmyst/p5.htm DRAMATIC ENTRANCE!!!]] [[http://www.commuterbarnacle.com/gonterman/4413.html AUTOMATIC MACHINE GUN FIRE!!!]]
* UnusualEuphemism: At the end of ''[=NiTRO=]'', Roll-Chan reveals she gave Gonterman some "Clinton Jobs." "''Oh yerf''" (which is a TakeThat to yerf.com, which Gonterman had some drama with); along with the standard furryism of 'yiffing' in Scarlet P.I.
* WhamEpisode: American Kitsune, Chapter Seven, which had the [[SeparatedAtBirth infamous twist]].
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: David can come up with ideas for plots that would be interesting if [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove given attention and developed carefully]]. Unfortunately, he also tends to get excited about the [[{{ADCD}} Next Big Plot]] and completely change the topic of his webcomic. There was at least one example involving a literal anthropomorphic mouse, too.
** Example: An extraterrestrial police officer battles Earth gangsters with illicit alien tech (the main plot-line), then the plot is about ProfessionalWrestling (because [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment why the hell not]]), then the same character has a wacky episode about hiding their SecretIdentity (never an issue in later strips), then there is suddenly a F-to-M transsexual with PsychicPowers (he wanted to [[WriteWhoYouKnow add a friend of his into the plot]]).
* WorthyOpponent: Captain Hook is this to ''both' PeterPan and Adam Packbell.
* YouFailBiologyForever: Eating [[ItCameFromTheFridge expired food]] will give you a cold and make you sneeze.
