YMMV / Go Get a Roomie!

  • Awesome Art: The second "Knight In Furs" story by artist Jack-Kaiser (Formerly Jack-Of-Box).
  • Base-Breaking Character:
    • The twins' sister, Kris, rapidly developed into one. Some readers find her amusing and cool. Others find her intrusive and rather rude. The second camp seems to have won, as she's all but vanished from the comic.
    • Evelyne. Some either see her as an insanely rude person that somehow managed to obtain friends let alone a fiancee or as a socially awkward individual who doesn't want to hurt others but doesn't want to be hurt.
    • Matt. Some either see him as the Only Sane Man or as a "nice guy" who doesn't handle rejection well and may have raped Lillian.
  • Broken Base: Chloe's depiction of Roomie and Lillian participating in a new age sweat lodge fractured a normally mellow comment section. With one section accusing her of ignorant cultural misappropriation, one side defending her respectful depiction of it, and a third just trying to avoid getting involved with the arguing.
  • Growing the Beard: Happens several times over the course of the comic.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Roomie's already rather melancholy comment in 'They stay' is given painful context by the revelation a couple of chapters later that she suffered the death of her best friend at the age of nine.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Roomie's clarifying answers about what she meant when she told Lillian "I like you" are even funnier when you notice that every one of the answers is equally true — despite the cliche of "I like you because I want to have sex with you", Roomie really does simultaneously like Lillian, like being around Lillian, and like Lillian for being Lillian — even as she feels sexual desire for Lillian.
  • Internet Backdraft: Fans got into passionate discussions to full-blown arguments over whether Matt raped Lillian when they dated. In the strip, it's revealed that Matt and Lillian dated but Matt, not wanting to fall behind his peers, coerced and emotionally manipulated Lillian into having sex for their first time with extremely vague consent from Lillian. Some fans backed him up saying that Lillian seems to miss him when her family moves and he was a stupid teenager, but others say that he emotionally manipulated her into sex, which is rape and also may be a reason as to why she comes off as asexual in the present.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Welcome to "GGaR" is an oft used phrase by the fanbase. Typically when a new reader completes an Archive Binge and catches up to the current page.
  • Squick: Roomie's armpit hair can be this to some people.
