Found on Wednesdays here.

Girls Next Door by Pika-la-Cynique is a Buildingverse Fan Webcomic, told from the perspective of the eponymous Girls Next Door:note  Sarah of Labyrinth and Christine of The Phantom of the Opera. It follows them as they live together as roommates in an apartment building with No Fourth Wall, attend a university, and try to get on with their lives in spite of their respective stalkers-slash-suitors who live downstairs. They are often joined by friends and neighbors from all corners of fiction, including James, Javert, Crowley, Aziraphale, Legolas, Lizzie, Luna and Nanny Ogg.

This DeviantArt fancomic is Meta Fic that tends to run on Finagle's Law and Rule of Funny (or Rule of Fanservicenote ).

Has a voice-over project on YouTube (here) and an audio only one by Shirekat here. There's also a Hungarian translation project titled A Szomszédlányok. (Scroll down. They have tropes!)

This comic provides examples of:


The Youtube Voiceover project provides examples of:

  • Limited Animation: Very very limited... you could swear it's just static images with an occasional effect or zoom.
    • It isn't?
    • It is, but if someone would do some mouth animation it would be actually hard to tell as thanks to the dynamic editing looks more alive than some actual cartoons from the 70s-80s.
  • Vocal Evolution: As the cast is mostly non-professional it's not surprising that they get better and better as time goes by.


The Hungarian translation provides examples of:

  • Gratuitous English: Some of the English is left unchanged. Mostly advertisement taglines and names of places (with subtitles if needed).
