So Sam decides it's time for Adelaide to get a life.It can be read here.
The one Adventure of Adelaide Parker provides examples of...
- Audience-Alienating Premise: A comic devoted to telling the main character off for spending time on the internet and enjoying geeky subculture probably shouldn't be delivered online. Or in comic form. Especially since...
- Author Filibuster: The whole point of the first encounter is that people who spend time on computers are BAD AT LIFE and need someone to save them.
- Take That: People who spend all their time online. Also, bronies are one of the first groups targeted by this comic, with the title character being one.
- Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: Adelaide's usage of the internet is harmful to her, and the aesop of "getting a life" is strong.
- This very quickly becomes Anvilicious though, as it's never explained why Adelaide shouldn't be on the internet other than Sam insisting she needs to be off it.
- Show, Don't Tell: We're told Adelaide's use of the internet is ruining her life, but are never shown how or why.
- Most Fanfic Writers Are Girls: Definitely the main character, though it's not presented in a fanservice way.
- Wacky College: The setting is a wacky university!
