Webcomic: Satan And Me

"I'm NOT a Satanist! I was on my period!"
Nat

A screw-up in a feminine hygiene factory leads to a girl accidentally summoning Satan with her period. Now Satan is stuck tending to the whims of Natalie McAllister, a religious high schooler who soon enough finds herself feeling a little bit of sympathy for the devil.

Satan and Me was based on this post on tumblr and written and drawn by Orangeplum.

The comic can be found here and here.

This comic provides examples of:

    open/close all folders 

    A-G 
  • The All-American Boy: Human Mike
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Gabriel has feelings for Anthea, who may have feelings for Felix who is far too obsessed with Satan to notice or care even though Satan barely gives him the time of day.Meanwhile Friend!Micheal has a crush on the seemingly oblivious Natalie.
  • All There in the Manual: Some bits and pieces of information are revealed through the author replying to asks on the blog.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking:
    Laila: Holy shit, are you a demon?! Are you the demon I've heard about that does McAllister's bidding?! OMG, are you buying her cigarettes? She smokes??
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Satan can turn into a woman to tempt someone to commit adultery.
  • Bad-Guy Bar: In one update, Satan takes Nat to a demon bar.
  • Beach Episode: A non-canon update had most of the known characters at the time playing at the beach.
  • Berserk Button: Satan can't stand even the sight of his brother, Michael. In the first present-day interaction we see between them, Satan punches a hole through Michael's abdomen.
    • Also being called a Monster. So much so that when he imagines/hallucinates Natalie calling him that he freaks out and ends up blowing a giant hole through the woods.
  • Big Little Brother: Though the Archangel Michael calls Satan his little brother, the latter is more than half a foot taller than him.
  • Blanket Fort: On a particularly stormy night, Satan sets up a blanket fort and tells stories to distract Nat from the thunder and lightning.
  • Call a Human a "Meatbag": Satan refers to humans as "meatsacks." Only once, though.
  • Camp Straight: Angel Mike easily comes across as gay most of the time, though Orangeplum has implied otherwise.
    Orangeplum (in a caption): It's pronounced "flamboyant".
  • Cassandra Truth: Kristi, a girl known for spreading gossip, tries to tell people Nat is friends with a demon. Predictably, no one believes her.
  • Ceberus Syndrome: The comic started out extremely lighthearted and episodic before it steadily began to pick up plot and become more serious as it developed actual arcs. The humor isn't at all lost, but the story is getting progressively darker.
  • Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: Satan seems to be able to make clothes appear or disappear on his body when he changes forms.
  • Child Hater: In an early strip, Satan says he hates children.
  • Crossdresser: Zadkiel, though they change their form as well as their clothes.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Raphael is prone to this.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Literally.
    • Satan once bared fangs and a snake-like tongue in a crowded shopping center, but the only one who noticed was Kristi.
    • When he was still an angel, he still had pointy ears and yellowish eyes.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Friend!Micheal towards Natalie.
    • Also Gabriel towards Anthea, though at this point he's pretty much resigned himself to the fact that Anthea chose Felix over him (regardless if that's actually the case or not.)
  • Disembodied Eyebrows: The eyebrows in this webcomic can be seen over the characters' bangs.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Satan gets mad at Nat after she has him taint Michael with his blood. He dislikes Michael a lot but apparently detests the idea of outright poisoning his own family.
  • Evil All Along: Though the audience finds out pretty quickly that Zadkiel is far from a good person, this comes as a shock to the other angels when Raphael sees her true colors.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: On a post about the characters' voices, Orangeplum says that Satan sounds like Terrance Zdunich, who has a very deep voice.
  • The Exile: Satan and the other fallen angels
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Satan when he takes the Freshman Stan form.
  • Fallen Angel: The demons are explicitly fallen angels, rather than creatures created with the sole purpose of being evil.
  • Fluffy Cloud Heaven
  • Flung Clothing: In one strip, Nat's bra ends up hanging off of Satan's horn and a shirt over his shoulder, implying Nat just threw her clothes behind her and they landed on him.
  • Foreshadowing: In this strip, Satan tells Nat to be careful of what she says, or she might "slip." When he sees Felix and Anthea, though, he actually does accidentally bump into her and push her off the roof.
    • This also qualifies as foreshadowing for the above.
    • In the comic in which Satan discusses how angels die, the two silhouettes look suspiciously like Zadkiel with a knife and Raphael with a slash across his chest. A few strips later, Zadkiel stabs Raphael.
    • The trust fall and Natalie falling off the roof foreshadow Natalie throwing herself off the bridge in "Run" to snap Satan back to his senses. She even says "I trust you" right before she falls. This time he catches her.
  • Fangs Are Evil: Satan tries to scare off some kids with this. It doesn't work.
    • Later, he uses the same tactic to scare a girl who had been spreading rumors about Nat, with much better success.
  • Gilligan Cut: Happens twice when Nat is sick.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Angel Michael. He's technically on the side of good, but while very cheerful, he's also kind of a jerk.
    H-W 
  • Hellish Pupils: Satan's pupils are snake-like in appearance.
  • Hero Antagonist: Technically, the Archangel Michael should be the hero, as he's the one who's supposed to defeat Satan.
  • Holy Burns Evil: Nat threatens to take Satan to church if he doesn't fix her reputation at school.
    • Though when she does take him to church, it doesn't so much burn him as make him a bit sick.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Anthea is a succubus who works as an escort, but she's by far one of the most gentle and caring characters. The only reason she fell was to follow Felix.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Next to Satan, Natalie looks like she could be Felix's size.
    • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Felix and Anthea. Though, it isn't that Anthea is really that tall. Felix is just really little.
  • Identical Stranger: Michael Panagakos and the Archangel Michael both look incredibly similar (excepting their eyes) and even share the same name. As characters, however, they're completely different.
  • Is That Cute Kid Yours?: Nat at one point has Satan take the form of a toddler to convince her father's crush that he was boyfriend material.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Okay, being Satan maybe it's not really a heart of gold, but as the comic progresses it's pretty clear that Satan isn't the emotionless monster that he wants to believe he is. Natalie even calls him out on this.
    Natalie: I Don't believe any of that. You try way to hard to look like an asshole! It's kind of embarrassing, so just stop!
  • Kid with the Leash: Nat won't release Satan because she knows he won't be able to hurt anyone if he's bound to her.
    Nat: Well, if I keep you here, then you can't go out and cause any trouble in the world.
    Satan: You bitch. Is that what you've been doing?
  • Knight Of Ceberus: The plot started to pick up when angle Micheal began to get involved, but the drama really kicked in with Zadkiel.
  • "Knock Knock" Joke:
    Nat: Knock knock.
    Satan: Who's there?
    Nat: Fix my reputation or I'm taking you to a church on Sunday.
  • Lame Rhyme Dodge:
    Satan: Fuck, I just really hate looking at your face.
    Michael: What'd you say?
    Satan: Uh, I said I'd like to visit outer space.
  • Lethal Chef: At one point, Natalie's cooking leaves her friend throwing up into a bucket.
  • Missing Mom: Natalie and Max's mother died in a car accident when they were younger.
  • Morphic Resonance: Seen with Satan and Zadkiel when they shapeshift.
    • Satan always has yellow/gold eyes and forked eyebrows.
    • Zadkiel always has lavender eyes, a lip piercing, and partially shaved eyebrows.
  • The Napoleon: Felix
  • Nervous Wreck: After Satan has a "talk" with her, Kristi becomes a little ball of nervousness anytime she sees him or Nat.
  • No, Except Yes: Played With
    Satan: Not that spending every waking moment in a teenage girl's room would make me want to strangle myself with my own entrails, but it's making me want to strangle myself with my own entrails.
  • Oh My Gods!: Michael says "Oh my Dad!"
  • One Steve Limit: Averted by the two Michaels.
  • Pun:
    Michael: How long have you and Nat known each other?
    Satan: Oh... only a brief... 'period' of time.
  • Only Sane Man: Sometimes it switches, but Anthea is usually the most responsible, down to earth one. Particularly apparent during the Oregon trip where she's surrounded by a bunch of teenagers and Felix.
  • Our Angels Are Different: The angels in this comic are much more humanoid than their biblical counterparts. And although they do have wings, they can be hidden inside their backs. Also, they have halos which can apparently be taken off and thrown away.
  • Overly-Nervous Flop Sweat: Kristi has a chronic case of this.
  • Platonic Life Partners: Anthea and Felix appear to be this, though it seems Anthea cares more about Felix than Felix cares about Anthea.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Satan, Michael (the angel), and Gabriel are all way older than 700 years, though they all look like young adults, at least in the forms we see them in.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: War, one of the four horsemen, has red eyes.
  • Removed from the Picture: Upon learning Nat's friend's name is Michael, Satan rips the boy's face out of Nat's photos.
  • Satan
    • Hot as Hell: Though we don't see him seduce anyone, he's very obviously attractive.
  • Sensor Character: Raphael can look into the hearts of others and see their true character. He's the one who warned Michael to watch out for Lucifer.
  • Shapeshifting: So far, we've seen five of Satan's forms: Devil, "drug dealer greaser", female, "Stan", and toddler.
  • Shout-Out: When Nat asks if Satan ever thought of going to prom, the comic cuts to an Imagine Spot of Satan grinning while buckets of blood dump onto the prom queen and king.
    • In one comic, Satan says "Good Morning Vietnam!" as a reference to the movie, but it alsonote  calls to mind a scene in Supernatural where the Lucifer of that show says the same thing.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Felix to Satan. According to his character bio, he "has an obsessive and invasive loyalty to Satan."
  • Stepford Smiler: The Archangel Michael
  • Sue Donym: Satan actually almost introduces himself as "Satan", but is interrupted by Nat yelling, "Stan!" Played straighter later when Nat almost refers to "Satan" when talking to Michael.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Satan's irises are orange rimmed with yellow or gold.
    • And now one of the four horsemen, Pestilence, has yellow/gold eyes.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: Zadkiel usually disguises herself as male when on Earth.
  • Torso with a View: Angels can survive having a hole punched through their bodies as long as another angel's blood doesn't get into their systems.
  • Villains Act, Heroes React: Zadkiel caused the design switch in the pad factory.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Nat and Satan
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: In his slightly more demonic form, Satan goes shirtless.
  • We Hardley Knew Ye: Ipos and Sheila only appeared in a couple of updates before they were Killed Off for Real by Uriel and his forces. It was just long enough for the fandom to develop some attachment.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: It seems strange but it's pretty hard not to feel bad for Satan
