In Surma's character entry. We have the fact that Surma (and thus the court) found out that Coyote desperately wanted to give Reynard his power. So they flagged renard as a threat and she tried to seduce him to their side, into the court where they could keep him out of the forest. Given that renard is simply not taking coyote's power implies that he was refusing it and that coyote couldn't convince him.

however this actually DROVE him into Coyote's eager embrace, he gave power to renard so he could get a body to live with Surma. it's not apparent yet whether coyote manipulated this situation into happening BUT

Surma's solution to getting Renard to not take coyote's power made him take coyoto's power...so my question is this.

Which trope should I put into her page?

unwitting instigator of doom? Nice job breaking it hero?

This is kind o late, but Paz and Kat just had a great example of a Coming Out Story. Maybe add if trope if no objections?

I think there's a slight issue with the bolded part here (emphasis mine):

Antimony Carver begins classes at the eponymous U.K. Boarding School, and soon notices that strange events are happening: a shadow creature follows her around; a robot calls her "Mommy"; a Rogat Orjak smashes in the dormitory roof; odd birds, ticking like clockwork, stand guard in out-of-the-way places. Stranger still, in the middle of all this, Annie remains calm and polite to a fault.

Now, Robot doesn't seem to be an example of the trope Potholed there. As far as we know, he was specifically created to be a robot, and as far as we can tell was created in a standard manner. Is there some reason it counts, or is it a case of Square Peg Round Trope?

I always thought the "Every symbol is significant" caption was a meaningless tautology, or at least too nebulous for a text-less image designed to stand on its own merit. I replaced it with a 2001: A Space Odyssey allusion, but it could just as easily have no caption.

I think that it was a good choice of picture and that the caption described it accurately.

Actually I think the old one fits the new image just as well if not better. On Kat's side of the image, on the far upper left, there is an object that looks to be two wheels connected to each other and covered in etchings of eyes. That is actually a depiction of a Biblical Angel, more specifically one called Thrones, associated with Daniel 7:9. " f the four, eye-covered wheels (each composed of two nested wheels), that move next to the winged Cherubim, beneath the throne of God. The four wheels move with the Cherubim because the spirit of the Cherubim is in them." Essentially, every single thing in that image is extremely significant, and was chosen by Tom for a very good reason. The hard part is deciphering them all.

The wheels aren't actually covered in animal eyes; they're the circuit symbols for light-dependent resistors.

Go ahead and create it yourself at this link. Feel free to pull the (large) NF entry off the YMMV tab.

About the Getting Crap Past the Radar entry... is that valid, considering this is an indie webcomic and thus has no censorship? Although, Tom did say he tries to make it kid friendly...
