* AnAesop: Quite common. Occasionally border on {{Anvilicious}} {{Author Tract}}s, but so far the comic has never failed to return to lighthearted silliness very shortly afterward. One example is that actions have consequences. Larisa didn't heed this when she [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2015/08/24/0712-send-to-all/ accidentally sent nude photos of herself to everyone on Snappic]] ''(she intended to send them to her boyfriend, Landon)'', causing many innocent people have been arrested.

Humorously enough, ''both'' of their first kisses came from Larisa. And of course, [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/11/26/0115-first-kiss/ Sandra doesn't count this one]].

* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Just about every single heterosexual relationship is between an energetic, fearless girl and a gentle, sensitive boy. The main exceptions are Cloud and Sandra (since the former is similarly adventurous to and more combat-oriented than the latter) and Woo and Lily (neither of whom is particularly masculine ''or'' feminine).
