This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Cry Cute: Marina, when she confesses her feelings to Franny, and George, when she's rejected by Ben and also when she finds out that Marina doesn't return her feelings.
  • Cry into Chest: George cries into Marina's chest.
  • Cute Witch: Franny at her introduction, until we learn her magic is actually due to her mom being a Celestial, making her only half-human and not, as was implied in the beginning, a human with magic powers.
  • Day in the Life: Mostly about the character's day to day lives and the drama they themselves create.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The first chapter features a significantly different art style than the second or third, and George is in high school, not college. Also, the only other main characters beside her in that chapter are her best friend, Franny, and Ben, as the rest of the characters are introduced in college.
  • Friend Versus Lover: A bit between George and Percy. However, it's not that she doesn't like Percy, she just wishes Franny would spend more time with her.
  • JerkAss: Ben. He's perfectly okay with George in her human disguise, but her actual form disgusts him.
Ben: M-monster!!!
  • Leave the Two Lovebirds Alone: George does this a few times when Franny and Percy get rather absorbed in each other.
  • Loony Friends Improve Your Personality: George's weird attributes tend to make the lives of those around her better.
  • Love Dodecahedron: Sasha likes George, who's in love with Marina, who actually has a crush on Franny, who's in a relationship with Percy.
  • Make-Out Kids: Franny and Percy, to the point where Franny starts neglecting her friendship with George.
  • Mystical White Hair: Franny has long, beautiful white hair and eyelashes despite being black-coded. Justified in that it's a sign of her half-Celestial heritage.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: George. She has a very feminine name, but insists on being called George and wears her hair short. She does seem to like wearing cute clothes and accessories, though.
  • Verbal Tic: George has a tendency to call people nerds.
  • Whole Episode Flashback: The first chapter is told mainly in flashbacks, with George sitting at her computer blogging about the experience.
