* AngstWhatAngst: My Candi and the others seem to get over the fact that she was kidnapped, tied up, shoved in a cage by a crazy person and nearly set on fire. All they seem to recall is that Alex also dumped her that night.

* UnfortunateImplications - Linda, whose scheming played a major role in breaking up Candi and Alex, is possibly one of the most selfish and manipulative characters in the strip. She is also the only major character drawn to look even remotely overweight, and her weight has been mentioned in dialogue in a derogatory manner.
** Linda is chewed out for cheating on Alex, while Nathan (who even bragged about the affair) wasn't, as if he were innocent of the whole affair. In fact, this goes back to when she first "stole" Alex from Candi, as if Alex had absolutely no say in the matter and when in fact it was his decision to break-up with her.

Added DiffLines:

* BizarroEpisode: Candi and the gang randomly go clubbing! Apparently they go clubbing all the time, they even introduce a new character there. But after they go home they never mention the club, or any interest to go dancing at all. It's like they just decided it never happened.


* HighOctaneNightmareFuel: Normally, the strip is light, funny, and inoffensive. It has however included one guts-churning moment when the protagonist is kidnapped by a disturbed individual who believes she is demonically possessed and attempts to burn her alive. He comes within seconds of doing so.

* TheWoobie - Candi acquires levels of this during her long post-breakup depression and it gets more intense before it even really meets its halfway point.


* {{Narm}} - The chief source of drama in the strip is the recent break-up between Candi and her high-school boyfriend Alex; owing to the slow pace of the strip, we've spent at least two years watching the first few weeks of her adjusting to it and, since we get sidetracked by other business, will spend another two years until it's summer vacation and they can clear the air.

** To be fair (ish?) it could be an attempt at femme fatale curves... Does that give it unfortunate implications, or just following a common trope?
*** It's been acknowledged in dialogue that she's noticeably plumper than the other female characters, and it's Candi's friends calling Linda fat and unfit, and Alex calling her a {{BBW}} (and even then he accidentally agreed about the 'unfit' part).
