Webcomic: Las Lindas
The main cast from left to right: Sarah, Randal, Taffy, Rachael, Idward, Minos, Miles, Mora, and Digit.

A long-running furry webcomic drawn by Chalosan and written by SoulKat. And that ID_Fox guy.

The story is a Slice of Life that revolves around Mora Linda, who inherits her family's farmland after the death of her mother Diana. At first attempting to manage the farm on her own, she quickly realizes that she will need help, and goes out to recruit some more workers. Things are complicated when an old rival shows up and tries to run Mora out of business.

The comic can be found on The Katbox, which hosts this comic here, along with The Eye of Ramalach, Caribbean Blue, and Anthronauts. The main comic, as well as some of the side comics and supplemental material, contains occasional NSFW material.

Generally updates on a week with the main comic and one bonus comic, but tends to slip due to the usual hassles of life.

Tropes:

  • Absolute Cleavage: Most of the females are guilty of this at different points of the comic.
  • Abusive Parents: In Taffy's backstory, her mother beats her for getting her hair dyed.
  • Action Girl: Joy Ravenhurs.
  • Amusing Injuries: Miles is a master of this.
  • Animal Stereotypes: In one page, Sarah mentions she hates water because she's a cat.
  • April Fools' Day: Every year since the comic's inception, they've had a joke comic on this day. In fact, the very first joke comic was considered a real comic for so long, it eventually had to be labeled an April Fools' comic just to clear up the confusion.
  • Alcohol Hic: Mora and Patches sit down and proceed to imbibe
  • Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering? complete with a Shout-Out to Pinky and the Brain on the last panel of this page.
  • Artistic License – Law: Mora forces Miles to work on her farm by posing as a prostitute, luring him home and beating him unconscious with a frying pan. She tells him that since he thought she was a hooker, if she tells the police, he'd go to prison. When sex is solicited illegally, both parties are culpable-IF they loose their trials. Also: this is enticement, assault-and-battery, extortion, and enslavement.
  • Armed with Canon: It's a little more subtle than most canon fights, but there's some pulling and tugging behind the scenes, as ID, SoulKat, and Chalo all have rather different ideas for where the comic should go. SoulKat usually pulls the most Executive Meddling and takes away ID's canon ammo, but since Chalo's the artist he can usually get the last laugh just by drawing it the way he wants it to go.
  • Art Evolution: Chalo's art has improved in practically every area since the strip's beginnings. Naturally folks argue about whether any given arc has a dip in quality.
  • Ascended Extra: Idward was originally meant to be a one-shot character used purely for comic relief. However, he was later reinstated into the comic during the Harvest Festival arc, and eventually became a main character.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Sage Freehaven. It all started when he won a cameo contest. Fast forward to the present day, and he had what amounts to an entire arc of "Breasts Are the Best" dedicated to beautiful girls fighting over him. He is currently the canon love interest of Tila Sunrise.
  • Attempted Rape: Mora is assaulted by a group of workers in one of the earliest installments of the comic. They get as far as removing her top... and then Minos shows up.
  • The Atoner: Apparently Minos falls under this because of his past.
  • Author Avatar: Miles and Idward are avatars of SoulKat and ID_Fox, respectively. Chalo has also drawn himself within the comic, but only as a Creator Cameo.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animals
  • Berserk Button:
    • People who make Sarah when Rachael is around end up with serious trouble on their hands.
    • Minos apparently used to have one in some form as well, a fact that he's deeply ashamed of.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sarah and Taffy.
  • Big Eater: Tiggs again.
  • Blondes Are Evil: Tootsie's had her moments of this.
  • Body Paint: Angel.
  • Bollywood Nerd: Tiare.
  • Bowdlerise: The pages "Nice Smell" and "Clothes" originally featured Geckuu going full nips. But it was eventually edited to have leaves and hair cover them.
  • Brainy Brunette: Tiare, once again. Sammy combines this with traces of Badass Bookworm and Cloud Cuckoolander at times.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: In one panel, Sarah questions what other people Ambar's story will inform. Ambar replies with "oh, everyone!" and smiles over her shoulder, looking directly out of the panel. Maybe not so much breaking it as using one of those diamond-tipped circle cutting whatchamadads to stealthily cut a hole through it.
  • Break the Haughty: At one point in Learning Curves, Vixy crashes a party hosted at Davin's place, talks trash about his "quarterback slut" girlfriends, and states her plans to seduce him. His girlfriends respond appropriately. To say nothing of Alej's "wardrobe malfunction".
  • Brick Joke: Minos' gophers.
  • The Bus Came Back: Idward had a conversation with Sarah in late 2010... and then vanished utterly until July 2014.
  • Butt Monkey: Amusingly, despite his Author Avatar status, Miles tends to be the character who gets comically injured the most. And if you're curious why, this Elf Only Inn comic provides some insight.
  • The Cameo: Several forumites have had cameos in Las Lindas and its bonus arcs; the forum runs cameo contests from time to time that allows for someone to win a cameo in the comic of their choice by producing an edit of an existing strip that most amuses the comic's creators. The winners so far are:
    • Guno (Winner #1; the girl leading Miles off)
    • Zarmir (Winner #2; the bartender)
    • Sage Freehaven (Winner #3; the merchant)
    • Dingo (Winner #4; the guy behind the register)
    • Fyxe (Winner #5; the girl with breasts that are huge even for Las Lindas)
    • Bad x Ash (Winner #6; his cameo has not yet happened)
    • Greycat R. (Winner #7; the guy resembling Idward in the first frame)
      • Uber-popular furry artist Jessica Elwood's fursona has also made several cameo appearances, mainly because she's a close friend of Chalo.
  • Catch Phrase:
    • Miles' "CRIPES!" whenever he's on the butt end of a joke or otherwise gets hurt. This reaches a new level of hilarity when this word is his reaction to WALKING OFF THE EDGE OF A CLIFF.
    • There's also Taffy's adorably flustered cry of, "Oh, raspberries!"
    • SK seems to be trying to turn "awesome" into Miles' new word in an attempt to get everyone to realize how "awesome" he believes Miles to be. Instead he's just making Miles sound like Michael Bay.
      • And now his thing seems to be calling every girl he talks to "babe". This has proven to be even more grating to most than his "awesome" phase.
  • Cat Fight: Mora and Rachael have a pretty big one later in the comic.
  • Character Development: One of the central themes of the comic.
  • Character Focus: Each of the bonus comics focus on one or two of the characters in the main comic, while the main comic features arcs that focus on certain characters at certain points in the story.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Sarah, so very much.
  • Continuity Nod: Remember the gophers Minos chucked? Apparently, his aim was off. (The second link contains NSFW material.)
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Alej's punishment for attempting to "steal" Sage from Tila in "Breasts Are the Best"? Stripped, chained and subjected to a cold shower. With Tootsie.
  • Cool Big Sis: Rachael to Sarah. Taffy also to a certain degree.
  • Covert Pervert: Certain character topics in the forums show Ambar having traits of this.
  • Cross Over: The comic occasionally has small non-canon sideplots with the other Katbox comics, usually around certain holidays (especially Halloween).
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Many character's pasts sucked to some degree, but Minos gets special mention since he used to work for the Big Bad of the universe.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Tootsie Roswell qualifies for this, having gray fur and blond hair.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Ambar has traits of this, with brown fur and red hair.
  • Dating Service Disaster: Digit accidentally sets Taffy on a series of these.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Miles, Mora and Rachael do this now and then. Alejandra comes a little closer since she spends most of her time deadpan, and only rarely lets her temper get the better of her.
  • Death Glare : Mora gives quite an impressive one on page 250
  • Deconstruction:
    • Of the Inferred Holocaust with the aftermath of the "Emperor vs Earth" backstory, and arguably of the Unknown Rival with Alej.
    • The Primes as a whole mildly deconstruct the concept of "anthro races". In most media with anthros, they tend to be almost identical, or at least very similar, to humans. The Primes, on the other hand, have their own unique history, culture, beliefs, political system, etc. Its actually a bit admirable that the authors have put so much thought into making their anthro race unique.
  • Determinator: The Emperor. He chased the Primes (the anthro animals of the comic) all the way to Earth simply because they left his iron-fisted rule.
  • Deus ex Machina:
    • Ambar pretty much personifies this trope, to the point where SoulKat intentionally tries to keep her out of the story.
    • Minos had a big problem with this as well, having a tendency to show up and resolve any situations with either a Megaton Punch or solemnly-delivered "wisdom".
      • The plane. This definitely counts, because it's a plot element that came right out of nowhere to magically end Miles' troubles, letting him keep his horrible attitude and not learn anything, and—judging by the dialogue—convincing everyone else in the cast that he's AWESOME. While Minos has to be made less wise and Ambar has to stop showing up in the main comic altogether to prevent more Deus Ex Machina from happening.
  • Diabolus Ex Machina: Hey, looks like things are looking up for the farm now that they've won the Harvest Festival! Wait, what are Din and Jin telling Sarah to do? ...Oh, Crap.
  • Disney Death: Digit experienced one.
  • Disappeared Dad: Mora's, as revealed here.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Miles was unable to figure out Mora's true intentions of making him work for her in the beginning of the comic due to her flaunting her sex appeal at him.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Tootsie.
  • Dysfunction Junction: Not as bad as most examples, but its still there.
  • Everyone Calls Him Barkeep: The Emperor.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: When Alejandra is about to start construction near the Las Lindas farm, she actually stops at the last moment after learning the starting point was actually Diana's grave. Needless to say, the executives that she works with questioned her decision until she pointed that very fact out.
  • Everyone Can See It: It's not a date! Except it is.
  • Evil Redhead: Din turns into this when she and Jin trick Sarah into nearly killing Digit.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: See Meaningful Name
  • Expy: By Chalo's own admission, the main girls. Chalo once stated on the forum that Mora, Taffy, Rachael and Sarah are directly modelled, in behaviour and character type (and in Rachael's case, design), after Love Hina characters Naru, Mutsumi, Motoko and Kaolla.
  • The Fair Folk: Din and Jin fit this perfectly.
  • Fanservice: The comic practically runs on it. Hell, the most popular bonus arc is "Breasts Are the Best", a non-canon arc that is fueled by fanservice.
    • The men get in on it too.
  • Fanservice with a Smile: Many female characters have their moments, but Taffy would qualify the most, considering her cheerful personality.
  • Flame War: One of the worst in webcomics today between two sides of a epic level Fan Dumb. It can sour the experience somewhat.
    • Which eventually led to the comics comment section being shut down.
  • Fiery Redhead: Ann, Din, Vixy, and Ambar.
  • Five-Man Band:
  • For the Evulz: Din and Jin's manipulation of Sarah in order to try and kill Digit.
  • Fourth Wall Mail Slot: The forums have a section where readers can ask questions to the cast. They can actually be quite informative (and funny) sometimes.
    • It's through this forum that Ambar gained a good amount of her popularity with the strip's fans; since she appears only rarely in the actual comic, the forum gave the Katbox Krew the chance to use her as a way to answer questions about Neo Earth and the Primes, as well as questions about Ambar herself.
  • Friendly Tickle Torture: The Ticklebug between Sarah and Rachael.
  • Funny Background Event: During this page.
  • Furry Confusion: "I'm not a cow!" To say nothing of the fact that Alejandra, who for all intents and purposes looks like a cow, runs a milk factory.
    • Went over a bit here in The Rant. Chalo points out that the Primes, being foreign to Earth, aren't related to wildlife. Still a bit jarring to see a anthromorphic antelope around your standard Earth antelope.
  • Gag Boobs:
    • Tila Sunrise.
    • Also Mora, Alejandra, and Nina.
  • Genki Girl: Sarah.
  • Glasses Girl: Alejandra and Tiare.
  • A God Am I:
    • Idward gets a little carried away and declares this on his island sojourn. Hilarity or injuries would've been sure to ensue if the bonus comic this trope happened in hadn't been canceled. However, it seems the comic is still canon, as the further events that would have happened are explained in the main comic.
    • The Emperor, who in the duration of its career killed several gods.
  • Good Bad Girl: Mora.
  • Groin Attack: Miles learned the hard way never to get between Sarah and her birthday presents. He also learned that Sarah may not be the brightest, but she knows when someone's giving her breasts unwanted ogling.
  • Halloween Cosplay: This has happened for a few years, and usually involves the other Katbox comics in some way. In 2009, the Las Lindas cast was drawn to resemble a movie poster for ''Army of Darkness''.
  • Hair Antennae: Sarah.
  • Highly-Visible Ninja: The ninja in this comic doesn't even bother to hide after finding what he's after.
  • Hime Cut: Rachael, as part of her Expy package. Her background also contributes to this, as she actually comes from a very high-class family.
  • Hollywood Kiss: Between Randal and Taffy.
  • Hot for Student: Bonus comic "Learning Curves" features a relationship between college teacher Sammy and college student Toby.
  • Hot Librarian: Alejandra may not be a librarian, but she has all of the other physical attributes to qualify for this.
  • Hot Scientist: Tiare and Tootsie fall under this category.
  • Hot Teacher: Sammi, no doubt about it.
  • Huge School Girl: Tiggs all the way.
  • Hurricane of Euphemisms: Done by Miles and Toby at the end of this Learning Curves comic. (NSFW)
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    Digit: Oh get real... flying magical nymphs? And we're going to get their secrets from a game manual? That's too weird to be real.
    Sarah: And you're a flying white ghosty thing who lives in a gem and is powered by love.
    • To be fair, Digit is technology that only appears supernatural.
  • Idiot Ball: This was seemingly glued to Sarah when Din and Jin were manipulating her.
  • Idol Singer: Hope
  • Ignored Epiphany: Miles, after seemingly realizing how badly he's screwed up his own life, apparently decides once again that he doesn't need to change anything about his less-than-admirable lifestyle or his toxic personality, the world needs to start changing for him because he's so perfect and awesome. That's right, folks - after that sappy faux Nice Guy speech about "changing for the better" at the end of the Mall arc, he clearly states that he's the same Jerk Ass he's always been and that he intends to keep being this way.
    • Earlier, we had Alej during the climax of the Harvest Festival arc. Her response to Mora saying she never wanted their rivalry and that she genuinely wants to be friends with her again? Rant and rave about the "injustice" of the situation and how her factory is the best thing ever. Karma quickly bites her.
  • I Have Boobs, You Must Obey!: Mora seduces Miles in the beginning of the comic and eventually makes him a worker at her farm.
  • Implacable Man: The Emperor is implied to have been one in the backstory. Even with the power of the Crests, it still took the direct intervention of a god to stop him from destroying everything, and even then there was considerable collateral damage to clean up.
  • Intelligence Equals Isolation: Tiare is... not a people person.
  • Internal Consistency/Retcon: The shapeshifting towel (between here and here)
  • Interspecies Romance: It's pretty common actually. Idward who's a fox, has had this with Mora who's a cow, and Miles who's a cat has had this with Taffy who's a rabbit.
    • And now Randal, a border collie, with Taffy.
  • In Vino Veritas: In BB, Taffy manifests a completely different persona while drunk, and calls herself Ria.
  • It's All About Me: This is how Miles' mind works.
  • Jailbait: Sarah, lampshaded by Mora here.
    "How can she look like that and be so innocent?"
  • Jerk Ass:
    • Miles.
    • Mora has a tendency of sometimes falling into this category.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Often, one of the above jerks or more will get chewed out by another jerk and it will be glorious.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold:
    • Mora and Rachael.
    • Alejandra seems to cross between this and Rich Bitch.
    • Miles to a degree.
  • Karma Houdini: Din and Jin manipulate Sarah into almost killing Digit and send Miles into a trancelike state that results in him falling off a cliff, and their actions by extension cause a sizeable amount of fire-related damage to the farm and lead to Rachael almost drowning. With absolutely no repercussions.
    • Unless, of course, Idward manages to put two and two together.
    • Sarah and Digit are planning to hunt them down but Din & Jin found them first.
    • Mora has done a number of things she's never been punished or even faced with the threat of punishment for since the beginning when she seduced, assaulted and blackmailed Miles.
  • Kick the Dog: Many of Miles' detractors see his actions during the Harvest Festival as an example.
  • Kill the Cutie: Din and Jin attempt to do this to Digit using Sarah.
  • Lampshade Hanging: This exchange from Breasts Are The Best.
    Ailana: How do you tan with white fur all over you?
    Vixy: Very carefully.
  • Large And In Charge: The Emperor, though since it was a "history lesson" by Ambar, that instance may have been for dramatic effect.
  • Left Hanging: At the end of the harvest festival arc, an unknown party discovers that Sarah is alive. We haven't heard from them since.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: How else would you explain Miles' string of terrible luck?
  • Lethal Chef: To say Randal tends to overspice his cooking would be a pretty big understatement.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: Not that we see the humans all that often.
  • Little "No": Delivered by Tootsie to Alej when she tells her she needs to give up on her revenge plans against Mora.
  • A Load of Bull: Minos.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: Between the regular cast in the main comic to all the other characters across the various side comics, it's a wonder that any of them manage to get any development.
  • Mad Scientist: Tootsie, in spades.
  • Magic from Technology: Lampshaded by Digit here.
  • Male Gaze: Lots, especially in the Breasts are the Best comics.
  • Mama Bear: Ambar, both literally and figuratively.
  • Man Child: Sarah Silkie.
  • Marshmallow Hell: In this Dungeons and Dames comic.
  • Meaningful Name: The title is Spanish for "The Beauties".
  • Mood Whip Lash: It's a proven fact that Miles getting hurt is a great way to alleviate stress from the darker moments.
  • Moral Dissonance: Miles personifies this trope. He demands the world's respect and gives none in return.
    • Almost all the characters tend to have this problem (if not the same reaction/circunstances) which seems to be a trend in many furry webcomics. It can be kinda unsettling when you realize it.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Practically every single female character qualifies as this in some way, with the exception of Taffy's mom (and the possible exception of Digit).
  • Nanomachines: Nano-zells, which are what Digit and the other Resident Spirits are made of.
  • No Biochemical Barriers: Played mostly straight. While Primes and Humans can have children together, it's apparently not very easy, making "hybrids" fairly rare.
    • This also applies between different Prime species, with any possible hybrids having only superficial physical distinctions (eg. Joy from the Knighthood side-comic).
  • No Respect Guy: People have a tendency to forget that the comic has TWO writers...
  • Not a Date: Randall and Taffy insist they aren't going on a date together... and admit they are on the next page
  • Not Blood Siblings: Mora and Randal have a pretend wedding in the now-defunct bonus comic "Simpler Times".
    • Also Sarah and Rachael, who actually refer to each other as "sis".
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Din and Jin definitely qualify after tricking Sarah into thinking they were kindly wish-granting fairies and convincing her to help them nearly kill Digit and destroy the farm. On top of this, only three of the characters even know they exist, everyone Digit told about them thought she was making stuff up, and Idward never suspected they were capable of doing what they did.
  • The Nudifier: The Glorps in "Dungeons and Dames".
  • Obliviously Evil: Din and Jin's shenanigans become a lot less funny once they almost kill Digit, giggling all the way.
  • Oh, Crap: Din and Jin, upon being cornered by Digit.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: Din and Jin never refer to anyone by their real names, instead using nicknames (i.e. "The Golem" for Minos and "The Great Artist" for Idward).
    • Taffy's real name is Ria.
    • Tiggs real name is Traci Biggs. Apparently, she doesn't seem to be able to make the connection.
  • Only Sane Man: Most of the characters take turns being one, but Minos and Taffy usually count the most.
  • Only Six Faces: Las Lindas suffers from Better Days syndrome, in that faces tend to gravitate towards "cat" regardless of what species the creature in question is actually supposed to be.
  • Orphaned Series: Several bonus arcs have been cancelled since they became a fixture of the comic's schedule; this was done partially to lighten artist Chalosan's workload, and partially because the cancelled arcs just weren't pulling in donations.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: This was the bread and butter of the Harvest Festival Arc.
  • Polyamory: Davin, and his relationship with Ann, Tiare, and Angel.
  • Protagonist-Centered Morality: Alejandra is the villain for having her Pet Rat try to force Linda into moving out. Ambar is considered a good character for rigging a contest in Mora's favor.
  • Pstandard Psychic Pstance: Subverted, in that while she doesn't use them often, there's never any indication that Ambar is using her powers unless you count the original Crest Diaries comic.
  • Quest for Sex: Miles' main goal in life.
  • Rage Breaking Point: When Mora visits Alej on Tootsie's request to try and make peace with her before she destroys herself. It seemed to be going well, until Mora sticks her foot in her mouth when she WRONGFULLY assumed the reason why Alej hated her was over a high school crush years ago and that she's willing to forgive the trivial spat. Alej got so angry at the assumption she SNAPPED HER SHOTGUN IN TWO with her bare hands.
  • Really Gets Around: Mora (prior to the events of the comic), Angel, and Geecku.
    • Especially Geecku, who was once stated to have had sex with well over 4,000 guys. Hell, Geecku IS this trope.
      • Actually, Geecku did it with 3273 guys according to this comic (though it certainly wouldn't be surprising if she's broken 4000 by now).
  • Really 700 Years Old: The Crests are all far older than they look, though exactly how old is uncertain.
    • Also Minos and Ambar.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Discussed between NZ Spirits and their creators. A warp spirit is born from a creator who thinks in details and has a strong analytical mind. A sacred spirit is born from a compassionate creator with a strong heart.
  • Rescue Romance: Mora and Minos.
  • Retcon: There are many examples of this, some good, some bad.
    • Rachael had once stated she went to high school, which contradicts the fact that she and Sarah grew up on the streets, thus Lost Kittens was made to show that she lied.
    • Tootsie was retconned into being straight.
    • Angel is now a former severe meth addict who was saved from the gutter and placed into college by Davin within about a year.
  • Rich Bitch: Vixy and, to a slightly lesser degree, Alej.
  • Right Behind Me: After successfully sneaking back to the farm after a secret day on the town, Miles and Rachael promise to keep it a secret from Mora...only for Mora to pop up behind them
  • Running Gag: Early comics would often have characters eating mint ice cream, as an in-joke to SoulKat hating the flavor.
  • Scenery Censor: Usually played straight, but occasionally subverted.
  • Schoolgirl Lesbians: In Learning Curves, Tiggs admits to Vixy she's normally not interested in girls, but finds Vixy to be "different". Also a rather out-of-nowhere case of If It's You, It's Okay.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Alejandra and Vixy.
  • Serious Business:
    • How Alej views the "competition" between her factory and the titular farm. She's pretty much the only one who treats it as such.
    • Rachael feels this way about the fights in the arena. She cuts herself off before she can use this trope by name.
    • SoulKat tends to act this way towards the comic and all related material. Let's just say, don't ever mention the nude photoshops to him unless you've always wondered what it feels like to be smacked upside the head with a banhammer.
    • The comments section on any given page will have people criticizing some writing/drawing decision, others gushing about the new story development, and others still telling the first group to shut up and cut the artists some slack. This goes on for a long while.
      • Happens on this page too. One example is the whole joke about Digit knowing when Mora and Minos are having sex. It was pretty clearly meant to be a "Little kid goes 'EW!' because they heard their parents doing mushy stuff" gag. The overserious reaction from some is more like "Digit is being raped every single time that cruel insensitive Mora has sex!"
  • Sex Sells: "Breasts Are the Best" is the main source of cash inflow for Las Lindas. And the Bust Chart project earned Chalo around three thousand dollars in under a month.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Many of the girls look lovely in their gowns during the Harvest Festival.
  • Shout-Out:
    • To World of Warcraft on this page.
    • Rachael is modeled almost completely, in design and character, after Motoko Aoyama from Love Hina.
    • Backgrounds in several strips during the Mall Arc featured images of characters from two of the other Katbox comics.
    • To My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic: Sarah describing a terrible sorceress can easily be compared to a similar character describing (or singing about) a certain Evil Enchantress.
    • Lord of the Rings gets a shout here when Idward is discovered channeling Gollum in the basement.
  • Skunk Stripe: Alejandra's hair color.
  • Spinoff Babies: Cancelled bonus arcs "Simpler Times" and "Lost Kittens".
  • Start of Darkness:
    • "Learning Curves", which shows how Miles went from a (more or less) decent guy to the bitter, womanizing cynic he is today.
    • "Building An Empire" shows how Alej became the...morally grey business tycoon she is in the main comic.
  • Stealth Pun: The Minotaur, anyone?
  • Super-Deformed: Several instances.
  • Super Strength: Minos has a lot of this.
  • Supreme Chef: Taffy.
  • Sweater Girl: Mora on occasion.
  • Tabletop Games: The bonus comic "Dungeons and Dames" is all about a gaming group Taffy joins, featuring a Dungeons & Dragons expy. Includes further examples of:
  • Taking You with Me: In the backstory, the Emperor tried to do this to reality itself, and he succeeded...sort of. It's complicated.
  • Team Mom: Taffy
  • Theme Naming: Pepper-Ann, Halite, Cocoa and Canela in Dungeons and Dames.
    • And the Ravenhurst girls, Joy, Hope, and Grace.
  • The Chick: Despite the cast being mainly female, Taffy practically defines this trope more than anyone else.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Page 273, which is basically an entire page of Tiare calling Miles out on all the crap he's pulled.
    Tiare: Okay, my turn to talk. You Suck. Your turn.
  • Third-Person Person: Tila and Geecku.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: "Because you're fired, bitch!"
  • Triang Relations: Type 4 concerning Mora, Minos, and Rachael. Can also apply to Idward, Mora, and Minos.
  • True Companions: Yes, there's quite a few kinks to sort out (especially between Mora and Rachael), but ultimately the farm staff count.
  • Tsundere: Despite SoulKat bearing a hatred of the very word to this day, even going as far as wordfiltering it on the forum to prevent further use of it, Rachael is being steadily Flanderized into a textbook example. When this was pointed out to ID {who once stated Rachael is "not, not, NOT tsundere, and [he] will facestab the next person who says she is!"}, he said he couldn't really argue with the classification anymore since Chalo and SoulKat have seemingly decided to write her as one. Apparently, Rachael punched Miles when he said he respected her.
  • Unknown Rival: Alej. Don't tell her that to her face, though.
    • In a similar vein, while Las Lindas and Alej's dairy farm empire are directly competing with each other, neither Taffy nor Tootsie are aware of who the other's boss is. This is why they're able to play the Dungeons & Dragons expy together in "Dungeons and Dames".
      • Of course, since it's Taffy and Tootsie, it's unlikely they'd care even if they did know.
      • They do know, from a Funny Background Event here. It's quite adorable. And they also don't seem to care - after figuring out who they each work for, Tootsie's first question seems to be if they're still on for D&D. They are.
  • Unlucky Childhood Friend: Miles to Hope in the Learning Curves story.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: Alej keeps her cell phone between her cleavage. Tootsie, on the other hand...
  • Villainous BSOD : Apparently, things had been going downhill for Alej since the harvest festival. She was able to recover after she and Mora recently talked out their problems thanks to Tootsie getting involved.
  • Walk on Water: Kate does this here.
  • We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties: Done here, after the comic version of Chalo's pen dies. (which is based off of real life Chalo's tablet dying)
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: Taffy has this reaction here. (Warning: NSFW)
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Both Miles and Mora have been called out on their Jerk Ass tendencies by Minos and Rachael, respectively. Later, Tiare calls Miles out as well.
    • And while Mora got to call Rachael out on one of her own tendencies of that variety, apparently only Minos is allowed to call Minos out on stuff.
  • World of Buxom: You can count the number of women in this webcomic that don't have tits the size of basketballs on a single hand. That's how buxom they all are.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Geecku, Jin, Nina and Tiggs.
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: Rachael to Miles here, when he applauds her advances towards Minos.
    Miles: I respect you for what you did.
    Rachael: AAAAAAARRRGH!
