Tropes frequently used by this author:
  • Author Appeal: Mister Donut seems to pop up a lot in her work. She also digresses into fashion and cosmetics.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Her favorite way to draw out a work.
  • Gayngst: Though it's never so much being gay as being the problem more so that the characters just don't know how to be with the same gender.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Most characters tend to be rather girly and interested in fashion and cooking.
  • Love Hurts: Her characters tend to wax endlessly and with teary eyes about the impossibility of their love.
