''The Philosophical Significance of Soda Bubbles'' is a {{Web Original}} novel. It begins as a typical {{Manic Pixie Dream Girl}} scenario, when Adam Malloy, the narrator, begins to be stalked by Macy Dawson, a shy, bookish girl who, after being diagnosed with leukemia, suddenly experiences a complete change in personality, becoming intensely bizarre and manic, and she uses her illness to guilt trip Adam into taking her on adventures. The scenario becomes [[IndecisiveDeconstruction partially]] a {{Deconstruction}} when Macy is revealed to be hiding her emotions behind her wacky persona in order to make sense of them, and from there the novel becomes a deconstruction of a Manic Pixie Dream Girl plot, though in the end it seems the [[{{Aesop}} aesops]] are the same.
