[[caption-width-right:270:Roomie and Lillian.]]

''Go Get A Roomie'' is a comedic webcomic centered around the wacky hijinx of the eponymous [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Roomie]] and her friends. These mainly consist of a gaggle of girls whom she [[ReallyGetsAround has slept with as payment for letting her sleep over at their place]] -- thus her nickname. Other recurring cast members include her favorite bartender, fraternal twins named Richard and Ramona (a sub and a dom, respectively), and Matt, a rather confused vanilla guy who can only look on in mild horror at her lifestyle. Soon she meets the introverted, [[{{Sleepyhead}} nigh-perpetually-slumbering]] Lillian, or "Lazy Tyke" as Roomie likes to call her, who is far more at home in her dreamscapes and imagination than in the waking world. Lillian, who loves sleep but is utterly unconcerned with the idea of sleeping ''with'' anyone, is perhaps the one person who has no designs upon Roomie -- and, of course, Roomie becomes fascinated with her. Despite LT's halfhearted protestations, Roomie ends up becoming her steady roommate -- and just as unusual for the restless Roomie as this extended period of consistent lodging, is the break in her pattern of omni-amorous unattachment. What follows is a romance of sorts as they grow closer together, and a study of the character features and flaws which have resulted in their deeply unique, and often heartwarming, personalities.

The comic is definitely '''{{NSFW}}''': a running gag involves Roomie's aversion to clothes, in keeping with her decidedly hippie value set. It was initially published on Website/DeviantArt by batlesbo (formally nana-51) [[http://batlesbo.deviantart.com/gallery/26030322 in a folder of her gallery]] but was eventually moved onto its own website. Since the current strip (and hence the main page) may be NSFW, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/and-so-it-begins here is the first]].

!!This webcomic provides examples of the following tropes:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Even dry-witted Lillian gets a chuckle out of Roomie making her eggs that look like boobs.
* TheAlcoholic[=/=]LadyDrunk: Roomie, who despite having what seems to be a pretty decent alcohol tolerance winds up drunk on an astonishingly regular basis (including a [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=5 highly suggestive ode]] to [[spoiler:beer]]).
* AllergicToLove: PlayedForDrama [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie26-171457458 with Roomie]], whose turbulent lifestyle inevitably causes anguish to anyone who has serious feelings for her. [[spoiler:This becomes even more prominent in Chapter 26 when Roomie realizes she can't avoid the fact that she has fallen in love with Lillian.]]
* AnguishedDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler: Wordlessly done by Roomie to Lillian.]]
* {{Anvilicious}}: InUniverse, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=286 Lillian makes quite a face reacting to]] WOC's [[AnAesop Aesop]] about being disabled.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: During a game of Truth or Dare at Jo's bar, Lilian ask Roomie if she'd ever fallen in love. Roomie goes through roughly ten minutes (or [[WebcomicTime several strips]], whichever) of avoiding the question with her usual hippy "I love everything" routine before Lilian [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/yes-or-no cuts through the bullshit]]:
--> '''Lilian:''' Roomie, have you, yes or no, ever fallen in love?\\
'''Roomie:''' ...No.\\
'''Lilian:''' There, was that so-\\
'''Roomie:''' Yes it was.
* ArtEvolution: The art has evolved ''big time'' from the early strips, becoming less drafty, cleaner, more detailed and currently more simplistic (simplistic, not comparing it to its earlier form).
* AttractiveBentGender: Lillian apparently looks good as a [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=327 guy]], at least according to Ramona and her imagination.
* BareYourMidriff: Many of Lillian's dream outfits, in stark contrast to her real clothes.
* BeneathTheMask: [[spoiler:Apparently, being as loved and idolized by everyone as she is gets a little suffocating for Roomie. It's part of the reason she's so drawn to Lillian.]]
* TheBigDamnKiss:
** After [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]] strips... [[spoiler:Lillian lays one on an unsuspecting Roomie while they are standing on a beach under a moonlit sky]]. It's one hell of a birthday present.
** 334 pages later, [[spoiler:[[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/falling-over Lillian lays a much bigger one on her.]]]]
* BiTheWay:
** Allan, Lilian's older brother. He's engaged to Evelyne but Steve is often with them for threesomes.
** Possibly Roomie, but this is subject to a series of [[TheUnreveal Unreveals]], and she's only been seen with women.
* {{Bishonen}}: Richard is ''very'' pretty, which he plays up in his submission activities.
* BrickJoke:
** The first time Lillian meets Roomie while being awake, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=31 her brother refers to Roomie as her "bed buddy]]." Later, when Roomie introduces Lillian to WOC, the latter asks if they are friends or '[[UnusualEuphemism bed buddies]]', which leads to [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=281 a slightly confused answer]].
** [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=91 Early on Aggie tells Lillian about Roomie's "weakspot"]] ("Her back is like a ''huge cli-''" "Clicking button that turns her on and off?" "One more than the other, but you get the idea!"). Later, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=420 when Roomie is singing and wakes Lillian up, Lillian touches her back, saying "Off"]]. Still later, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=495 WOC tries to talk to Roomie while giving her a back massage]].
** A few hours after [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=447 Roomie found a "Little Rooster" in Lillian's drawer]], [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=460 Allan comments on his sister not owning any "toys"]].
* ByNoIMeanYes:
--> '''Roomie:''' Hey... Can I come in?\\
'''Lillian:''' No. But come in anyway.\\
'''Roomie:''' Do you want a hug?\\
'''Lillian:''' No. But give me one anyway.
* CanonWelding: ''WebComic/HeadlessBliss'' is a story that Lillian is writing in-universe.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Lillian has a tendency to collapse on the spot not long after ingesting even the smallest amount of alcohol. Well... an even greater tendency than usual, that is.
* CatapultNightmare: Happens when Lillian's shadow of negative emotions [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=224 impales her]] in her dream.
* CatsAreSnarkers: Lillian's cat is very much like a muted form of her owner.
* CaughtWithYourPantsDown: In the most hilarious sense possible. During school lessons, Gulden fingers Ramona under the desk and challenges her as nympho vs. dom, causing Ramona to stand up and pridefully exclaim ''in front of the whole class'' how she's the one who's in charge...''while Gulden's hand is still in her pants''.
--> '''Gulden''': ...I dropped my eraser in there.
* CerebusSyndrome: After the madcap opening act and early FishOutOfWater strips of Lillian adapting to Roomie's world, the love story becomes both more prominent and more muted, shunting Roomie's manic lifestyle to the side, especially after pressure from the advertisers reduced the frequency of nudity somewhat.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: That, or [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie21-169439643 Roomie is just good at]] ObfuscatingStupidity.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Roomie's punishment to someone not willing to wake up is covering them up with love bites.
* CooldownHug: Roomie gives one to Matt to resolve some of the [[{{UST}} tension]] that built up between them by [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie24-170937018 strip 24]].
* CrazyPrepared: Roomie has left some clothes in peoples' places all over town, so no matter ''where'' she sleeps she already has something to wear when she wakes up. Not that she minds just going ''naked'' instead.
* {{Crossover}}: Roomie makes a brief stop by [[http://woodyafterhours.com/comic/affection-attack/ Woody After Hours]].
* {{Deconstruction}}: Roomie is gradually turning into one of the MarySue archetype by recognising that, because of all her many perceived perfections, [[StaticCharacter she isn't growing and developing as a human being]] in the same way that [[DefrostingIceQueen Lillian is]]. While LT is there to comfort her when she starts having these doubts by effectively saying that she's fine the way she is, [[HiddenDepths it's very telling that Roomie]] ''[[BeneathTheMask doesn't believe her]]''.
* DefrostingIceQueen: In time Lillian finally warms up to Roomie, although she maintains her low-key, deadpan way of reacting to the shenanigans around her.
* DeadpanSnarker: Lillian, full stop. It comes through when she's making up stories as well, as when [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=264 she's telling a story about The Little One]]:
-->'''Lillian''' [''narrating'']: It considered everything it did as ''fabulous''. Even getting its butt kicked.
* DeathGlare: [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=648 Don't forget to say please when ordering at Jo's.]]
* DismissingACompliment: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=153 Here]] (lampshaded in [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=154 the next strip]]):
-->'''Roomie:''' Okay, let's get this straight. When I say something to you, or anyone else for that matter, I say it because I ''mean'' it. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis You. Are. Beautiful.]] There, get used to it.\\
'''Lillian:''' You lost me at "[[{{Pun}} straight]]".
* DistractedByTheShiny:
** Roomie stops a more serious conversation about Lillian mid-sentence upon inadvertently activating a touch lamp.
--->'''Roomie:''' '''ITJUSTLITUP!'''
** Roomie tries to dodge Lillian's questions about her by [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=261 stepping into a clearing on a sunny day]].
** Even Lillian isn't immune to [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=457 shiny stuff]].
* DoesNotLikeShoes: "[[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Does Not Like]] ''[[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Clothes]]''" more accurately describes Roomie, but even when she's otherwise fully dressed, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/forgetting-something she still won't wear any shoes]].
-->'''Lillian:''' [''pointing down at Roomie's bare feet''] Aren't you forgetting something?\\
'''Roomie:''' I am, aren't I? [''comes back in the next panel [[ComicallyMissingThePoint wearing a headband]]''] '''NOW''' I'm ready!
* DoubleEntendre: Roomie needs approximately three seconds to come up with one. Comes back as a BrickJoke when, at a later point, Lillian is given the option in a game of "Truth or Dare" to either tell the truth of whom her "first" was, or make up a double entendre on the spot, with a time limit on three seconds to make up her mind. She decides to go for the "think like Roomie" approach and delivers [[TakeAThirdOption a combination of both]] just as the three second time limit expires.
* DoubleMeaningTitle: Chapter 13 is titled "Your Song". [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=397 It begins with Allan's phone]], which has the Music/EltonJohn track as its ringtone. [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=434 It ends with Lillian talking to Allan about Roomie's suggestion]] that [[spoiler:she write stories based on her dreams]], and Allan saying, [[TitleDrop "It's your song, Lillian.]] Now you can dance to it."
* DreamWithinADream: After getting dream shanked, Lillian wakes up...next to a topless Evelyne...who becomes a demon.
-->'''Lillian:''' Waking up from nightmare: Round two.
* DrunkOnMilk: Roomie apparently gets herself [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie30-174384702 drunk]] on [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie29-174100609 water]]. TruthInTelevision, in that particular types of alcoholic beverages (red wine being a classic example) will leave alcohol in a person's liver; a sudden intake of liquid will thus flush this alcohol out, causing intoxication. Similar effects can occur in heavy drinkers.
* DudeShesLikeInAComa: Roomie briefly entertained the thought of thoroughly ravaging Lillian in her sleep, but settled for giving her a kiss on the cheek instead. D'aaawh.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Lillian's brother nicknames her "Lazy Tyke", which Roomie takes to with glee and which takes only moments to get twisted into "Lazy Dyke".
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer:
** Roomie seems to inspire this wherever she goes. In her early appearance, Ramona even explained that even though she likes to dom for men (and some women), she ''does'' make exceptions for shy little virgins who have never known a woman's touch... Roomie is an exception to that exception.
** Ramona fits this trope as well, as she attracts a lot of women admirers.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Ambiguous. [[spoiler: Before their [[RelationshipUpgrade relationship upgrade]], Evelyn has convinced Lillian that [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/baby-steps-2 there's something between them]], but nobody (including all the [[ShipperOnDeck cast]]) really quite knows what it is.]]
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: No, not the actual barkeep (whose name is Jo), but Roomie herself. As explained in [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-get-a-Roomie-pg3-163461439 strip 3]], it's short for "Room-mate". Her real name has not been revealed so far.
* FacePalm:
** It's not like Matt has much of a choice about it.
** Evelyne after [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/epilogue Steve's deflection attempt]].
* FreudianSlip:
** While the {{Double Entendre}}s are being flung left and right, this is the only one that ''seems'' to pass as [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie109-211392499 unintentional]].
** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in one strip, but it is quite possible that the "slip" was intentional.
* FlatWhat: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=118 Allan's reaction when Lillian called him up to yell at him was not what she expected.]]
* FriendsRentControl: Roomie and Lillian have a very nice living space when neither of them has jobs. [[JustifiedTrope It's established early on]] that Lillian and her brother are living on an inheritance.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: As Matt [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie18-168188967 puts it]], watching half-naked girls is more interesting than trees. Also, arguably the whole point of the comic.
* GodivaHair: During one of her lucid dreams, Lilian's subconscious [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/dream-pool gets the drop on her]].
* GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave: WOC being a little older does nothing to deter Roomie or Ramona from finding her attractive.
* HalfIdenticalTwins: Ramona and Richard, to the point that [[spoiler:they can each pass as the other twin]]. The only distinguishing thing between them is their eye color. (blue for Richard, green for Ramona)
* HetIsEw: Roomie jokes about being [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie23-170782803 heterosexually infected]] by Matt's kiss.
* HurricaneOfEuphemisms: Jo's attempt to explain to Lillian that Roomie is in the back room engaging in lesbian sex.
* HypocriticalHumor: Ramona seems to make a habit of this when bantering with her twin brother Richard. [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=326 For example:]]
-->'''Ramona''' [''{{Dope Slap}}ping Richard'']: You're doing it again.\\
'''Richard:''' Doing what?\\
'''Ramona:''' {{Imagin|eSpot}}ing things without people's permission.\\
'''Richard:''' You do it as much as I do.\\
'''Ramona:''' Of course I don't. I'm ''minutes'' older than you and much more mature.\\
[''in Ramona's ImagineSpot'']\\
'''Ramona:''' Now lads. You may stop fighting over your mistress. There's enough of me for everyone.\\
'''Lillian:''' Excuse me?
* IAmNotPretty: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=152 Lillian thinks she isn't. Roomie begs to differ.]]
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Roomie manages to save Matt from her three odd friends with "The power of BEWBS!"
* IKnowKungFu: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=240 Aikido]], actually.
* IncompatibleOrientation: [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=729 Richard speculates that Lillian and Roomie have not hooked up]] because Lillian is most likely {{asexual}} and Roomie is most likely aromantic. [[spoiler:Subverted by Roomie later discovering that she is, indeed, in love with Lillian.]]
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Watch/Garden Boy is described by Richard as an innocent angel.
* InformedAbility: Ramona is often described as a {{dom|inatrix}} (in contrast to her [[AllWomenAreDomsAllMenAreSubs sub twin brother]]), but mostly ends up on the bottom in a variety of situations. Those who have managed to be "on top" of her in some way include Roomie, Gulden, WOC, and even Lillian. It may simply be a RunningGag, though it might also be an indicator that [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=590 she's trying to look tougher than she is]].
* InSeriesNickname:
** Roomie probably wasn't named such by her mother.
** Lillian will always be "Lazy Tyke" or [="LT"=] to Roomie.
** "Watch"/"Garden Boy"
** WOC, standing for "Wise Old Crone."
** Gulden is a {{BBW}} nicknamed thusly by Roomie [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=365 because, like Gulden Draak beer]], she's "Dark, strong, irresistible, and wet".
* JustForPun: The title of the comic is a pun on "go get a room", [[DontExplainTheJoke an expression used to communicate to a couple that their... interaction compromises the dignity of those around them]].
* JustFriends: This is what Roomie prefers her relationship with Matt and Aggie to be, and is all that her relationship with Lillian amounts to...[[WillTheyOrWontThey so far]].
* LadyKillerInLove: Roomie seems to be downright enamored with Lillian. She has definitely spent more time focusing on Lazy Tyke than anyone else in the series. [[spoiler:Roomie eventually realizes that she does really love Lillian, but it takes her a bit to bring herself to tell her.]]
* LapPillow:
** Roomie [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=210 provides one]] for Lillian, while she tells her story.
--->'''Roomie:''' My lap's that comfy, huh?\\
'''Lillian:''' Well, it certainly isn't ''un''comfy.\\
'''Roomie:''' Uh-huh.
** In the latter half of [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/by-ruelpelwelpe-2 this guest contribution]], Lillian is providing one for Roomie while she tells a story.
* LateToTheRealization: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/this-girl Lillian wonders if Roomie will ever fall in love with someone.]]
* LaymansTerms: Matt gets more than he bargained for when he asks Aggie [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/systema-and-intersex to simplify what "intersex" is]].
* LiquidCourage: As displayed [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/drinking-change here.]]
* LoopholeAbuse: Roomie is dared to be clothed for 24 hours. She then spends the night wearing only a scarf.
* LovableSexManiac: Roomie, whose first reaction to a spring day is "sex in the park!"
* LoveConfession:
** [[spoiler:Roomie ''finally'' admits that she loves Lillian...[[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/oh-shit-she-said-it even if it's only to her inner WOC]].]] The comic's title even lampshades it.
** [[spoiler:Roomie later wordlessly confesses to Lillian before Thanksgiving dinner.]]
* LoveYouAndEverybody: Roomie says this almost word for word when gently turning down Aggie, who had fallen in love with her.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: While Roomie (promiscuous, usually drunk, and [[GoodBadGirl teasing everyone]]) and Lillian (solitary, sheltered, and emotionally subdued) fit the roles of the trope, the trope itself is in equal parts downplayed, deconstructed, and ''inverted''. Neither Lillian nor Roomie is shown as really ''happy'' with their role, and both end up changing their lives after making friends with the other.
* MasterOfTheMixedMessage:
** Roomie seems absolutely dumbfounded that some people may misunderstand her sexual antics as anything serious.
** When [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=402 Evelyne gives people]] the "let's be clear."
* MilhollandRelationshipMoment: When Roomie feels guilty about having snuck into Lillian's bed after having been specifically told to sleep on the couch, Lillian, who had just had a dream about [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Roomie being the harbinger of Lillian reconnecting to the outside world]], isn't angry at all.
* MistakenForCheating: SubvertedTrope [[spoiler:when Lillian finds Roomie, naked and drunk, in bed with Ramona. She's quick to remind herself that nothing about that is unusual. Ramona is quick to assure her that nothing happened, which Lillian believes and simply [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming gets into bed with both of them.]]]]
* TheModestOrgasm: Discussed, obliquely, when [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=248 Roomie and Lillian are drinking tea]].[[note]]"A tree" is a reference to [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=246 a remark Lillian made earlier that morning.]][[/note]]
* MushroomSamba: Jak and his (unnamed) friend get [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie22-170702170 really]] high at the party at Aggie's place.
* NakedApron: Sported by Roomie, when she's baking a cake.
* NotAMorningPerson: Lillian, earlier in the series. She later spends more time being awake and around people (or at the very least, her roommates), which in turn causes Roomie to go on her own journey for a while because everyone around her including Lillian were growing as human beings and she wasn't.
* NotWhatItLooksLike:
** Subverted on the second morning Lillian awakens in bed with Roomie.
--->'''Roomie:''' Aah, what would I give for this to be what anybody would think we're doing if they spotted us right now.\\
'''Lillian:''' ?
** ...and played straight when [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=206 Allan walks in on his fiance showing his sister the engagement ring he gave her]].
--->'''Evelyne:''' These are the times I feel like someone up there's making a joke out of my life.\\
'''Lillian:''' I'd agree with you if it weren't for the fact that I'd be agreeing with you.
* OhCrap:
** Lillian's [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/this-girl reaction]] once she realizes [[spoiler:that Roomie is in love with her]].
** Roomie has a [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/ok-chill similar reaction]] after [[spoiler:the sweat lodge kiss, and realizing their relationship is stepping up]].
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness:
** The normally unflappable Lillian blows up at Kris, Richard and Ramona's older sister, after she overhears what sounds like Kris making a rather lewd proposition to Roomie. [[spoiler:Turns out Kris was saying Roomie would be perfect for a particular movie role. Oops.]]
** When people find out once Roomie comes back that she hasn't had sex since she left Lillian's, people start freaking out.
** After a drunken night of [[spoiler:coming to terms with the fact she's fallen in love with Lillian]], Roomie comes home drunk and says that she doesn't want to make any more sexual jokes, not towards Lillian anyway. This disturbs Lillian highly.
** LT has seen Roomie in the buff who knows how many times. [[spoiler:What she hasn't seen is Roomie getting naked before her, both literally and emotionally, and blushing while doing so, which leaves her blushing and speechless.]] This is doubled down on when [[spoiler:Roomie's confession of love includes her saying Lillian's name to her while sober for the first time]].
* OpenMouthInsertFoot:
** [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=649 Oh, Matt...]]
** Lillian's summation to Richard and Ramona of what happened between her and Kris.
* OneDialogueTwoConversations: [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=339 When Roomie is talking to Ramona and Richard about what they will do during their estrangement from their parents, and Lillian is dreaming.]]
* OnlyOneName: Every character so far, with [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=202 only one exception]] (or two, if you count inferring her brother's last name from hers). "Roomie" is not even a name.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname:
** Roomie's real name is a mystery.
** WOC[[note]]"Wise Old Crone"[[/note]], until a flashback names her as [[spoiler:Manisa]].
** Watch/Garden Boy [[spoiler:or Sebastien David Wong]] until Richard asked him what his name was. Watch doesn't hate it, but he doesn't care for it either. [[spoiler:Probably because it isn't his birth name--just a name the doctors gave him.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Roomie and Lillian become this for the twins after they move in, to the point of making them school lunches and insisting they get to bed on time.
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn: Interestingly, it's not the onlooker, but her former lover Aggie who is embarrassed by Roomie's nakedness when she answers the door.
* ThePollyanna: Roomie. ''Nothing'' can get her down. Even encountering homophobia makes her happy, since it drives lesbians closer together.
* ThePromise: Aggie promises to never fall in love with Roomie. Take that as you wish. [[spoiler:She eventually does and disappears for a while. When she comes back, she's sorted out a few things, including the fact that her love for Roomie will go unrequited, and she and Roomie eventually reconcile.]]
* PostKissCatatonia: Turns out even Roomie is vulnerable to this, thanks to a [[spoiler:[[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=578 groggy Lillian]].]] She's arguably even more vulnerable to it when [[spoiler:[[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/there-you-go Lillian does it again, only this time she's completely awake]].]]
* ReallyGetsAround:
** Roomie's promiscuity never ceases to astonish Matt. Especially when [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie20-168823673 she learns Aggie's name the next day after bedding her]].
** Pretty implied all of Jo's Kids[[note]]the patrons at his bar[[/note]] are all like this.
* RedOniBlueOni: Roomie and Lillian have the personalities pat, reflected in red and blue color schemes (to the extent color features at all), including Roomie's red-tinted real world in contrast to Lillian's blue-tinted dream world.
* SandInMyEyes: Immediately after WOC tells a heartwarming story about Alice, [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=628 Lillian needs a tissue for a "cold"]].
* SarcasmFailure: During [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=345 "The Night in Furs"]] (Lillian's retelling of ''Literature/TheKnightInRustyArmor''), the knight's irreverence isn't up to mocking [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=387 The Shadow of Fear and Doubt]].
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: In the early strips, Roomie had a habit of getting naked whenever she wanted to be comfortable (and it [[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie19-168819096 takes three hours to get her back into clothes afterwards]]), without care of who was around. This has been dialed back now that the comic is more relationship focused and less NSFW, due to advertisers wanting the creator to roll back on the nudity and sexual themes.
* ShipperOnDeck:
** [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=465 Allan]], for Roomie and LT.
** It's not just Allan any more: almost every friend and/or relative of Lillian and Roomie has ended up shipping them together. Just look at their reactions to [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/same-sex-marriage this exchange]] between the two.
%%** The Twins, especially Ramona.
** Roomie for Watch and Richard. She even goes as far as to help Richard kidnap Watch for a quick outing by distracting WOC. The distracting doesn't work, but [=WOC=] lets Watch run off with Richard.
** Now we can add Lillian's formerly estranged mother to the Roomie/Lillian ship, despite her first meeting with Roomie [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/free-hobo being]] [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/forgot-about-you quite]]...[[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/no-judgement interesting]].
* ShipTease: Most fans and in-universe characters ship Roomie and LT, something the writer occasionally [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=760 has some fun with]]. [[spoiler:[[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/strip-666 Strip #666]] is either the start of a RelationshipUpgrade or the biggest tease yet.]]
** [[spoiler:Chapter 26 shows that Roomie's been trying to avoid the fact that she may already be in love with Lillian and she's coming face to face with them.]]
* TheShutIn: Lillian, who sleeps the better part of the day and barely interacts with anyone, which is why her brother [[spoiler:set her up with Roomie in the first place]].
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Lillian, as mentioned before. It is heavily implied that sleep (or [[ExploitedTrope faked sleep]]) is an escape mechanism she resorts to whenever life and/or circumstances start getting uncomfortable.
* SpitTake: Matt, when flustered.
* SplashOfColor: Used to portray [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=647 Matt's embarrassment]].
* StepfordSmiler: Lately, the more Lillian's character develops, the more Roomie wonders whether hers is going through a similar process. Recognising that [[StaticCharacter it isn't]] affects her, which she confides in to LT, but around everyone else she keeps on smiling.
* StraightMan:
** Matt, both literally and in the trope sense.
** Lillian more prominently... though, if just about everyone other than her herself is to be believed (and even then discounting [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=218 Roomie-inspired aspects of herself]]), purely in the trope sense. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint (Well duh, she's a woman.)]]
* StunnedSilence:
** Roomie can only manage a [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=544 "Huh"]] when Lillian passive-aggressively shatters her world view with the news that things can change when she's not around.
** Roomie again does this [[spoiler:when she finds out that Matt and Lillian are exes and it's implied that she does this out of jealousy]].
** [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/no-more-dirty-jokes Now it's Lillian's turn]] when Roomie, [[spoiler:after her LoveEpiphany]], tells Lillian that she doesn't want to make dirty jokes towards her anymore.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Lillian's default approach towards the waking world is aloofness, but time makes it clear that she does care about the people she's with. Her confrontation with Kris brings this out in dramatic fashion.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial:
** Allan has definitely never had dreams about "steamy encounters with pink unicorns and dragons with rows of penis on its back."
** WOC did ''not'' dream about [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=619 dragons]] after reading Tolkien books all night.
* ThatCameOutWrong: At the end of Chapter 18, after Lillian invites Roomie to [[LiteralMetaphor sleep in her bed]] and Roomie promises to "be good in bed".
-->'''Roomie:''' Sorry! Double meaning not meant! Joke! Hah!
* {{Transgender}}:
** Jak, at one time known as Julia, much to Roomie's shock.
** Susan, a transwoman who used to be Kris' roommate, is well known to Ramona and Richard, and who helped Evelyne to talk to Lillian.
* {{Tsundere}}:
** Evelyne defaults towards the assertive-tsun, but nevertheless solidly fits the trope, as becomes obvious when [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=402 she gives Steve]] the "let's be clear".
--->'''Allan:''' [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=403 You're the one person I know who loves to be as clear as possible and still manages to make it confusingly ambiguous. It's adorable.]]
** Lillian is usually more of a SugarAndIcePersonality, but [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=64 at times drifts into tsundere territory herself]].
--->'''Lillian:''' It's ... a feeling I've never felt before ... to want to hit someone so much.
** [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=534 Ramona shows a tendency to cross the "aloof" and "caring" streams herself]] during [[spoiler:her visit to WOC]].
--->'''Ramona:''' Look, I'm not-- Just don't thank me for anything all right? All right. Bye. Later. Maybe. Not that I want to-- [''[[LuminescentBlush blushing furiously]]''] UGH BAI.
* TwinSwitch: Richard and Ramona do this in order to seduce each others' teachers into giving them better grades.
* TwinThreesomeFantasy: As wished by [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=678 Gulden]].
* TheUnreveal: Roomie's had a few:
** When she's asked (somewhat obliquely) in an interview whether she likes men, she purposefully misinterprets the question. When she wakes up having apparently had a threesome with two men, she objects of the straighter one, "he's... Allan!"
** She's hinted to LT that [[spoiler:she was traumatized as a child by the death of a friend]]. However, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=728 she doesn't want to talk about it right now]].
** During Matt's Podcast (which was more or less a disguised Q&A with fan-submitted questions), Roomie's asked what her real name is and she dodges the question.
* UnusualEuphemism:
** Shortly after [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=246 this exchange]], Roomie uses [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=248 "a tree"]] as one.
** Later, when Roomie is [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=261 comparing Lillian and herself to two different kinds of beer]], Lillian asks "...so how many friends are 'drunk' with you?"
* VisualPun:
** It's revealed Lillian is still unconscious when it's showed that she's talking to talking screws, who tell her "[[http://nana-51.deviantart.com/art/Go-Get-a-Roomie103-209073642 you're screwed]]."
** During Roomie's nude meditation, her inner self has a flower covering her crotch.[[note]]the pun being that flowers are traditionally symbolic of female genitalia[[/note]]
* WhamLine:
** Happy and peppy Roomie drops the somber bombshell about her past.
--->'''Roomie:''' [[spoiler:My best friend died when I was 9.]]
** [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/girlfriend-name Matt reveals who his old girlfriend was.]]
** Roomie finally faces [[spoiler:her feelings for Lillian]].
--->'''Roomie:''' [[spoiler:I love her.]]
** Lillian gets upset after [[spoiler: Roomie begins to briefly distance herself when a couple comments on how cute they are whilst at the park, causing her to tell off Roomie for caring about labels because she and her are way too deep to keep their relationship simple. This sparks heart eyes from Roomie along with this:]]
---> '''Roomie:''' [[spoiler: We are a couple and you are my girlfriend.]]
** When Roomie and Lillian [[spoiler: are getting ready to make love for the [[TheirFirstTime first time]]]]:
---> '''Roomie''' [[spoiler: I've never had sex sober. I never had sex with someone I loved. And I never had an orgasm with anyone.]]
* WhatWouldXDo: During the [[ParlorGames Truth or Dare]] game at Jo's bar, [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=172 Lillian is given a choice by Ramona: name her first sexual partner, if any, or make a sexual innuendo on the spot]]. She manages the latter by channeling [[LovableSexManiac Roomie]].
* WhenSheSmiles: Lillian laughing has quite an effect on [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=332 Richard and Ramona]].
-->'''Richard''': You're pretty as fuck!
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Roomie and Lillian. Regardless of whether or not they ever hook up, just about anyone that knows them (especially Richard and Ramona) already sees them as a couple. [[spoiler:As of [[http://www.gogetaroomie.com/comic/too-late-for-that this page]], they officially have.]]
* WithCatlikeTread: [[http://gogetaroomie.com/index.php?id=600 "Ninja style!"]]
* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: Anytime Roomie calls Lillian by name, chances are much seriousness is inbound. Though this has [[CharacterDevelopment largely changed as their relationship evolves.]]
