YMMV: Boy Meets Boy
  • Designated Monkey: Cyanide, whom the author made no secret about personally disliking by the end of the comic.
  • Ship Sinking: Between Cy and Skids, despite it being a Ship Tease for a long time in the comic. In the end, the two not only do not get together, but Word of God says they lose contact soon after the comic ends are not even friends anymore.
    • To a lesser extent Skids and Harley, although there was very little indication anything would have ever come from it anyway.
  • Squick: "Spontaneous Orgasm"? For heaven's sake, Cyanide! Nobody would have wanted to be on that particular road trip ...
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Skid's crush on Harley, and Cy's attraction to Skids, both unrequited and unrevealed throughout the total run of the comic. Could also come off as Arc Fatigue since both were Ship Teased for awhile and ultimately led absolutely no where.
  • Slash: Most fans like putting Cy/Skids together, to the point that the author got tired of people wanting her to rewrite the ending or writing a coda where Cy/Skids got together. And has threatened to have bad things happen if people don't drop it.
