Go To
This Is the Worst Idea You've Ever Had! (Worst Idea or TWIYEH, for short) is a webcomic by Kieran Thompson, a.k.a. Kytri. It follows Nicole Masterman, an elf and recent college graduate, who lives in a fictional town in Virginia with her close friend, Ian, and a small dog named Nummy Muffin Coocolbutter.

TWIYEH borrows its characters and some of its concepts from Kytri's first webcomic, The Rift, an Orphaned Series about a gang of bounty hunters. The Rift was ended in February 2010 due to lack of interest, but TWIYEH was started a few months later in May 2010.

While the characters from The Rift are the main players in the comic, several characters from Kytri's Team Fortress 2 fancomic, Cuanta Vida, have been appearing as major and minor characters, earning TWIYEH a sizable fanbase.

More information, as well as character bios, can be found here.

The comic came to an end on October 6th, 2019.


This Is the Worst Idea You've Ever Had! provides examples of:

  • Badass Adorable: Tiny Carmilla, who looks like she could be broken over one knee, corsets and all? Yeah, she punches through doors and flings them into the sky.
  • Brick Joke: In the first chapter, Cynthia assures Nicole if they ever really were to come across a vampire, she'd punch them. She does exactly that in chapter two.
  • Changeling Tale: Turns out Ian is a fae, his human counterpart having recently turned up.
  • Advertisement:
  • Cast From Hitpoints: Magic users can suffer "burnout" if they're not careful. Some of them even die from it.
  • Catgirl: Cynthia is a Beastman, a biological human with some animal features. Additionally, Nai'ka are a species of people with cat-like features.
  • Drives Like Crazy:
    • Sergio parks like crazy, anyway.
    • Gabry apparently drives like how any stereotypically Italian man would.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Gabry's very first appearance in the main comic has him asking a total stranger if she's okay after he sees her date pushing her around.
  • Ethical Slut: Gabriele and Liam are in an open relationship, and they can both sleep around, but they have limits and rules that they have to follow (no emotional flings, needing permission, etc).
  • Little Bit Beastly: The Beastmen — biological humans with animal features. This includes Cynthia, Kimmie (the daughter of Cynthia's boss, a field mouse) and Jeremy (a rabbit). Apparently, there's surgery available that can make Beastmen look more like normal humans.
  • Major Injury Under Reaction:
    Nicole: "There's a sword in you!"
  • Manchild: Caine states he "doesn't wanna be an adult" when told the gang's Halloween party is a dinner party.
  • Monster Roommate: Cynthia would seem to fill this role, except Nicole and Ian aren't exactly normal humans.
  • Mundane Fantastic: Somewhere between this and Urban Fantasy.
  • Must Be Invited: Discussed when Nicole and Cynthia argue about whether or whether not a vampire could come into their car uninvited.
  • Name of Cain: Subverted; Caine's a goofball more concerned with burritos and trying to get into a nightclub by annoying the bouncer than anything else.
