This Is the Worst Idea You've Ever Had! (Worst Idea or TWIYEH, for short) is a webcomic by Kieran Thompson, a.k.a. Kytri. It follows Nicole Masterman, an elf and recent college graduate, who lives in a fictional town in Virginia with her close friend, Ian, and a small dog named Nummy Muffin Coocolbutter.TWIYEH borrows its characters and some of its concepts from Kytri's first webcomic, The Rift, an Orphaned Series about a gang of bounty hunters. The Rift was ended in February 2010 due to lack of interest, but TWIYEH was started a few months later in May 2010.While the characters from The Rift are the main players in the comic, several characters from Kytri's Team Fortress 2 fancomic, Cuanta Vida, have been appearing as major and minor characters, earning TWIYEH a sizable fanbase.More information, as well as character bios, can be found here.Also has a character sheet.
This Is the Worst Idea You've Ever Had! provides examples of:
Abandoned Info Page: Averted for now. New characters get added after they are introduced in the comic.
Head Pet: Nummy Muffin must be pretty well-trained to sit on Cynthia's head like that.
Heroic Albino: Carmilla, though it's not clear if her coloring is natural or if it's due to her Badass Vampire-ness.
Also, we find out that Jeremy is this trope too - it contributes to his self-esteem issues.
Inhumanable Alien Rights: While it's still a crime to kill them, the Nai'ka are legally considered to be animals. They have no human rights to speak of, and the police are generally quite unwilling to investigate crimes where Nai'ka are the victims as it's considered to be "animal abuse". It doesn't help that they tend to be quite trusting and easy to exploit. Rei is a fairly prominent speaker for Nai'ka rights as a result of all the crap his kind has been put through.
Little Bit Beastly: The Beastmen — biological humans with animal features. This includes Cynthia, Kimmie (the daughter of Cynthia's boss, a field mouse) and Jeremy (a rabbit). Apparently, there's surgery available that can make Beastmen look more like normal humans.
Establishing Character Moment: Gabry has an entirely different one here to the one he has in TWIYEH (a good compare and contrast, to show all the Character Development he goes through) - here, he mostly refuses to talk to a therapist for fear of being considered crazy, and then gets excited and petulant about an assassination job.
Fan Nickname: Gabry's fuckbuddy, Avery, is known almost exclusively as Wonderfag on the forum.
Red Oni, Blue Oni: Gabry is carefree and teasing (Red), while Liam is serious and stoic (Blue). They even wear their respective colors, albeit it's to reference a certain webcomic. They're also a bit of an Odd Couple.
Repetitive Name: Averted with Liam Williamson. Word of God says his first name is not short for William, his parents weren't that cruel.
Although it's played with - Gabry does go to therapy sessions, but he doesn't really know what to talk about, there are some things he just doesn't want to talk about, he lies about important issues that may help him to talk about and he's being forced to go to them anyway. So whether the therapy would actually have a positive effect remains to be seen. Word of God mentions that Gabry isn't going to therapy anymore in Worst Idea, so it's still unknown whether this is because the therapy actually worked or if it didn't and he found other ways of sorting through his issues.
