Trivia: Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures

Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures

  • Author Phobia: Amber is frightened by horses. I wouldn't say it's much of a stretch to assume that because of Amber's fear of equines:
    • The main villain is a demonic black horse.
    • One of the other scary characters (Kria) appears to be some sort of zebra with wings.
    • Albanion, the only Fae to curse someone on-screen and the most unpredictable from the heroes' point of view, is also equine.
  • Schedule Slip: The Author is frequently sick. Doesn't seem to matter as her viewers are addicted to the comic, but it's noticeable. Amber also suffers frequent obnoxious computer breakdowns preventing her from working on the strip. Recently, she started posting rough colored strips that lack fine shading and background details to give the fans their fix of updates sooner than her production schedule would otherwise allow, posting the finished page once completed. The community reaction has been positive to this initiative.
  • Tuckerization: Alexsi Ti'Fiona was named after Alexsi Athenis, who was an Ill Girl that passed away passed away August 23rd, 2004.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The 1997 story arc that saw Pokémon becoming popular In-Universe (a case of Early Installment Weirdness) was based both on its incredible fame at the time and the idea that it was a fad that would eventually die out—and in the comic, it does. Today, with Pokémon remaining a Cash Cow Franchise in real life, the arc looks dated even compared to the rest of the pre-Art Evolution strips—especially after one comic from 2009 was titled with a reference to the franchise only those who played the games would get.
  • What Could Have Been: Originally Wildy and Jyrras wouldn't have remained Beings, but that was changed due to the comic having a lack of Being characters.
  • Writer Revolt: This strip. It's played for laughs, but Amber is definitely making a (valid) point.
  • Write Who You Know: A lot of the characters are based off of people Amber knows
