''[[http://www.jadephoenix.org/comingupviolet/index.php Coming Up Violet]]'' is a FurryComic written and created by Brian Daniel and illustrated by Misty Caldwell (background art by Kevin), and the sequel to ''Webcomic/FurWillFly''. The comic also was a spinoff, switching the focus from Brad and his antics to Violet Oaks and her circle of friends in high school.

A more consistent art style leads this comic to be better than the original graphically. It's also way more PC. However, the artist and the writer had a falling out leading to the comic being [[OrphanedSeries canceled]] and ''taken down''. The ''canceling'' didn't last long as the artist continued the comic on May 17th, 2010 with a new writer (Bombur). Looks like things turned out okay after all.

The comic has not updated since April 2012.

!!Troping Up Violet:
* ArtEvolution
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: All the characters except Brad and [[spoiler:Dawn]].
* BatmanInMyBasement
* BewareTheNiceOnes
* BishieSparkle: [[http://jadephoenix.org/comingupviolet/2009/08/17/coming-up-violet-18/ Lampshaded.]]
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler: Abby]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Brad and his daughter.
* ContemplateOurNavels: Why are we here? Brad doesn't know exactly, but he does know that he and Dawn are there for a purpose.
* CoolMask: Just like she did in Fur Will Fly for Brad, Natalie creates a fursona mask for Dawn so that she can appear in public. It's based on either arctic fox or wolf, and this time Natalie also fashions additional elements of the costume that allow Dawn to wear more revealing feminine outfits, including chest fur and full-sleeve and hand bits. Combined with her natural blond hair, the disguise is so effective boys actually start to hit on her on sight.
* CousinOliver: Dawn is the second human in the comic and a rare example of this trope done well.
* CrushBlush: While watching a movie together
* TheDarkSide
* DefrostingIceQueen: It's less of a defrosting and more of an [[spoiler:evaporation]], but you get the general idea.
* {{Diary}}: The title character keeps one of these, and it's used as the intro for the comic proper.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The pretty boy JerkJock who spreads lies of memetic proportions about his and Violet's completely non-existent sexual escapades is on the school's lacrosse team.
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:Abby doesn't like being [[DomesticAbuse abused]].]]
* DomesticAbuse: Not the spouse-on-spouse kind, but still . . .
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Racquel and Wendyl]]
* EtTuBrute
* EveryoneHasStandards: Even Brad, who by the CUV's timeline is mostly a lovable goofball, can take only so much craziness in his everyday life, as evidenced when he walks on Page, Dawn and Violet in the middle of an indoor watergun deathmatch. The sight is enough to make him pour the hot cider he intended to drink out the window.
* EverytownAmerica
* {{Fanservice}}: Misty once drew [[strike:three]] two of the male characters in swim trunks.
* FishOutOfWater: Dawn
* FurryConfusion: One of the filler comics showed that Melody owns two dogs.
* GenderEqualsBreed: Slightly subverted in that ''every'' cross-species example seems to take after the mother, regardless of sex
* [[spoiler:[[TheManBehindTheMan The Girl Behind The Girl]]: Abby helps keep Racquel popular, in exchange for immunity from taunting by Racquel's group.]]
* GoGoEnslavement: Page owns one of the classic examples of this trope for use in her and Brad's bedroom games.
** The roles latter get reversed between Brad and Page as to who's wearing it.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Violet has two of these, both modeled after the classic WarnerBrothers versions of the trope.
* GoodSamaritan: Violet is quickly becoming the AnthropomorphicPersonification [no pun intended] of this trope.
* GroinAttack: See "[[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/bdaniel/violet/series.php?view=archive&chapter=29441 Wedgie Messiah]]"
* HalfHumanHybrid: Beatrice, Brad and Page's daughter, who has her mother's species and gender, and her father's . . . everything else.
* HeroicBSOD: Melody suffers one when Skylar asks her if she would like to meet up with him after school and compare class notes. Being a shy and unpopular girl with very limited boy interactions, she completely freezes and snaps out of it only after realizing she has just accepted his offer.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Very much subverted with the school bullies.
* HighSchool
* HoistByHisOwnPetard
* InterspeciesRomance
** Bat/Rhino
** Human/Mouse (yeah, they're still around)
** Cat/Squirrel/Bat/Chinchilla LoveDodecahedron
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Melody for Skylar and her best friend Violet, trying to get them together while developing feelings for him herself. Violet herself is more intrigued by the very concept of dating and romantic relationships than by Skylar as a person, but agrees to talk to him after their first random encounter and goes on a test date with him to make the insistent Melody happy.
* JerkAss
* JerkJock
* KidsAreCruel
* LawOfDisproportionateResponse
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father Like Daughter]]
* LoveDodecahedron
* MaliciousSlander
* MalignedMixedMarriage: Brad and Page, complete with the various difficulties of said trope. Most of those difficulties usually turn out to be trying to hide Brad's real identity (he's an alien from a MirrorUniverse), while also resulting in a lot of AngstWhatAngst at the same time due to Brad's {{Cloudcuckoolander}} nature.
* MatchmakerCrush: Nerdy boy Skylar tries to learn more about his crush Violet by spending time with her best friend Melody, who quickly and eagerly agrees to the idea once she picks up what's really going on, claiming not be ready for dating herself. However, over the course of just the first few meetings she realizes she might be infatuated with him. Still, not wanting to ruin his and Violet's potential happpiness, she continues following the plan and even goes as far as informing Violet of the scheme and setting them up on a date, all while openly talking about it with both of them and telling Violet that she will only make a proper advance on Skylar if he decides Violet was not what he was looking for in a girl.
* MediumAwareness: In strip 231, posted on 8/30/2010, Brad contemplates why he and Dawn were sent to the comic's universe. In [[http://anivasion.deviantart.com/#/d2xm2ay the full version posted on Misty's DA profile]] he concludes that not only is there a higher power guiding their lives but that there's a good chance that [[RealLife the world]] is just a template with certain differences being like toys in a game of make believe, thus hanging a colossal lampshade on the entire writing process and fiction in general in the process.
* NaiveEverygirl: [[spoiler:Oh so very much subverted ''and'' played straight with Abby.]]
* NeatFreak: Melody, who prefers to keep everything organized.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Skylar was perfectly happy pseudo-dating Melody, then his best friend Wendyl reminded him that he had originally started hanging out with her to get to her friend Violet.
* NoBiochemicalBarriers: Brad and Page's daughter
* ObfuscatingStupidity: The story depicts Brad as a silly-yet-lovable Cloudcockoolander for most of the time, but there are moments when he breaks the mold by offering unusually deep insight on some of the matters troubling the main cast, especially as Dawn can testify. This makes it difficult to tell whether he acts the way he does because he really is a simple man, or just preffers to keep his more mature thoughts to himself (and maybe Page off-screen) and try to brighten up the day of others through his antics instead.
* OnlyOneName: Besides Brad's family there's also the background artist for the comic, Kevin.
* OutGambitted
* ParentalSubstitute
* RecurringElement: It appears the authors of both CUV and its prequel Fur Will Fly have some affinity for the film Labyrinth, as it is mentioned in both works: in FWF Page watches it with Brad on a movie night, in CUV Skylar shows it to Melody on one of their sort-of-dates.
* ShoutOut: The 2009 Halloween filler featured Melody and Violet as characters from VideoGame/TeamFortress2 [the Sniper and Scout respectively], which makes sense considering that [[http://anivasion.deviantart.com/journal/28030719/ Misty is a fan]].
* SpinOff: Of ''Webcomic/FurWillFly''.
* {{Squee}}
* StayingWithFriends
* StrawFeminist: Subverted: Violet does not want to be the Wedgie Messiah.
* StudioAudience: [[http://jadephoenix.org/comingupviolet/2009/10/01/coming-up-violet-60/ Played for laughs]]. [[LaughTrack Literally!]]
* SuperOCD: Melody; it certainly doesn't help that she's a chinchilla.
* TheCavalry: When Dawn begins to show up in public and goes shopping with Violet donning her fursona disguise, she has the bad luck of catching the eye of local teenage playboy Darren, who quickly tries to woo her, much to her discomfort. Luckily for her, Violet is within earshot and just her arrival at the scene is enough to make him run for his life due to past experience with the vengeful squirrel.
* ThirdPersonPerson
* TriangRelations
* {{Uncanceled}}: It's aliiive!
* WellDoneSonGuy: Subverted: Skylar's step-dad really tries to be a good parent.
