Flaky Pastry is a webcomic by Félix Lavallée, which started in 2005 and is ongoing, with updates every Friday. It's a Low FantasySitcom featuring the (mis)adventures of three college roommates, who have to deal with landlord dragons, vindictive halfling mages, impossibly large dungeons, and a whole host of other Dungeons & Dragons-esque characters and situations.The three main characters are:
Nitrine, an unusually intelligent (read: about as smart as an average human) goblin girl with green hair. Loves inventing things with dubious purposes. Later learned to make clones of herself (or anything she wanted) using her imagination.
Zintiel, a sociopathic High Elf. Not strictly a student, but tags along with Nitrine and Marelle when she's bored. Surprisingly strong, and a dab hand with apocalyptic magic. Was due to be married to an Elven prince but ran away on their wedding day. It's eventually revealed that she and Nitrine had previously crossed paths several years back.
Artifact of Death: Again, the Transcendental Reality Rearrangement Device. Though it's unclear if using it would cause someone to die, what it does certainly sounds like it would cause death, and not just that of the user.
Marelle and Zintiel, as they don't show obvious attraction to women at first, but are married in a later story arc which takes place 400 years into the future, while present!Marelle does eventually confirm that she is indeed sexually attracted to Zintiel.)
Church Militant: It's not really clear if Sister Mona Theist is this or a Badass Preacher. Given she belongs to the "Sisters of Holy Retribution", and considers it appropriate behavior to go around swinging a BFS at "evil doers", it's probably Church Militant.
Happiness in Slavery: Nitrine's maybe-cousins would rather work for her as her slaves then not. Not because she's any nicer to them, but because she's away from home so often, so they get a nearly year-round vacation.
It Amused Me: The reason Zintiel does nearly anything. For example, at one point she fights Mona, who abandons the fight to save people from a collapsing building. Zintiel then starts rescuing people, too... as a competition to see who rescues more.
MacGuffin: The Transcendental Reality Rearrangement Device, whose owner would not retrieve it himself and would rather sacrifice a bunch of treasure-happy dough-heads to the Dungeon Crawler on the off chance that they would find it and bring it back to him. He does this because it's too unstable to use magic directly on (so he couldn't just teleport it to himself) and he's too lazy to get it himself it's very dangerous for someone to touch it.
Slap-on-the-Wrist Nuke: Omega Murder Blast obliterates the terrain in a substantial area around the target, but doesn't harm anyone other than the person it's centered on—after all, it's a single-target spell.
