Halfway through the Abel's Story side-arc, which featured by far the darkest, most serious material in the strip and went worse from there, the author created an "intermission" image while on medication. It features herself in her "Wiku Worm" sleeping bag, her mascot/sidekick Fluffy, vicious Psycho for Hire Aniz, and one tentacle of a creature Aniz horribly murdered. And (archived thanks to a quick-thinking forumite) it looked like this◊.
For those who like black humour, one update of Matilda's Story which featured her repeatedly stabbing her dead brother's corpse while screaming about how much she hated him was accompanied by this comment in the rant: "Chock full of updates that are all about family togetherness and joy, just in times for the holiday season."
[Imagine Spot in which the Adventurer's Guild half-asses the investigation] Wildy [awkwardly]: Ah heh...heh...well you know. Paperwork and investigating can be really time consuming...may take a while for results...and stuff... Abel: Wow. Your poker face is bad enough I don't even have to pretend to read your thoughts. Nitemyste: Oof. Yeah. I hate to agree, but that's a terrible poker face.
