Webcomic: Her Majesty No More
Miss Meadow Heller led a very sheltered life as the descendant of the old royalty. She lived at home, homeschooled and waited on hand and foot by servants and maids. Until the fateful day came when her parents summoned her to inform her that the time had come for her to leave home and head off to a frightening new place: college.Her majesty no More details the escapades of the overly spoiled Meadow, trying to adapt to a world that does not revolve around her (for the most part). Quite a bit of social awkwardness ensues.
This webcomic provides examples of:
- Alpha Bitch: Aiko, along with her two friends, Bonnie who is also one of Meadow's roommates and Ida. Aiko has an old business with Meadow, who apparently stole all the limelight during their childhood.

- Fish out of Water: Meadow takes this Up to Eleven with her sheltered background. For example, her roommate Karla has to show her how to make her bed.
- Heroism Incentive: Subverted. The college principal, desperate to keep Meadow's family happy, tells Karla that he'll bump all her grades up if she helps Meadow out. Of course, Karla, being generally nice, was already going to do that anyway.
- Idle Rich: Meadow gets accused of this quite a bit.
- Innocently Insensitive: Meadow frequently acts this way. This has both benefits and downsides for her and Karla.
- Insult Backfire: Bonnie and company call Meadow a "whale" as a fat joke. Meadow's classmate, Bruno's response? To assume (jokingly) that they have vision problems.

- Posthumous Character: Thomas Lears, the talented teenage pianist, who happened to be Meadow's first crush. He appears in a flashback and its implied that he died of cancer. Yet, he seems to have affected the present quite a lot, being one of the reasons for Aiko and Meadow's conflict.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: The principal. He's trying hard to keep Meadow and her parents happy, but his actions (such as forcing her to leave class after finding out she skipped breakfast) do more harm than good.
