* BrainWashed: {{Brainwashed}}: [[spoiler: Happens to Libby.]]


As far as we can tell the original run of the comic began sometime in 2006. The comic went on it's first hiatus on July 19th 2009. However, starting January 9, 2011, it began updating again. The early parts of the strip were revamped as well as having material added. Essentially the entire comic got a Main/{{Reboot}}, seeing as none of the later pages from the earlier rendition are available for so much as as a comparison. However while the comic updated regularly between January and August 2011 updates stopped (apart from a couple of sketches) until May 2013. Updates were then pretty solid until February 2014 when they died off again, with only two updates throughout the rest of the year. Nothing was updated until January 2016, then updates again stopped after February 2016. Nothing was heard from the author until June 2018 where they penned a lengthy Website/{{Tumblr}} [[http://thisissadcat.tumblr.com/post/174501043208/state-of-the-awakened-comic post]] explaining the realities of life (not least of which the vast differences between the author's eighteen year old self who started the comic and their current mid-thirties self) and inviting feedback on whether they should reboot the comic ''again'' or "put it to bed" as part of the artists early history and start new projects.

* BadAss: Tristan, Sue, Montague and Keelan, to name a few.

Added DiffLines:

->''Chase Sigismund is falling apart. Chronic insomnia will do that to you. But is his life spiraling out of control because of a simple sleep disorder? Or did reality just become much worse than his nightmares?''

-> ''What if nothing were coincidence? What if every happy or horrible event that took place in your life was put there on purpose? What if it were all an experiment; a war game that has taken place on a hidden plane since the dawn of humanity? What if you woke to find yourself in the midst of it? What if everything you thought was true was, in fact, a lie?''

* BreadEggsMilkSquick: Chase starts off talking to his therapist about how his various issues may have started in kindergarten when a classmate refused to let him play with a toy dinosaur.
--> '''Therapist:''' That doesn't sound very traumatic, Chase.
--> '''Chase:''' Well, when I asked to play with it, he said no in a really mean voice. Then he stabbed me in the face with a concealed switchblade, and after that repeatedly pummelled me with the dinosaur until I finally passed out from blood loss, at which point I think he might have raped me in the ass with its tail.
--> '''Therapist:''' Oh.

And although Keelan still betrays Kishan, he still shows distaste over the actions he has to take, as well as offering Libby several chances to give up and save herself.]]
* ManChild: Asher sometimes comes across as this.
---> "Throw it! Throw it! Throw it! Throw it-Ah! I really thought you were gonna do it that time but you didn't."
