Thomas Fay Syndicate (TFSyndicate for short) is a deviantART account specializing in comic-style fan art, photography and media by Thomas Fay.
Projects with their own pages:
- Catch Phrase: The E train's is "Mario! Are you LISTENING?!?"
- Cranky Neighbor: The E train is 100% ill tempered, and really hates it when you try to ignore his rants.
- Shout-Out: Mario, the main character, has a newsstand at the Times Square station. Ever read The Cricket in Times Square?
- Caught on Tape: Tom once made out with "Egg-yolk" and Dani in chapters 9 and 10, and found it on record the next day. Turns out it was Rammy, ticked off because she was fired.
- Catch Phrase: Tom squeals "WOW!"
- Keeping Secrets Sucks: Tom believes in this theory. He even convinces Danny to spill the beans about his ghost powers to his parents. It worked well.
- Shout-Out: Chapter 2 has this little gem: "Rammy, you're trying to seduce me...aren't you?"
- Spit Take: Tom does this to his margarita after learning that Dani is an Opposite-Sex Clone.
Radio RadioThe continuing adventures of radio personality Todd Zeppelin, a franchise consisting of Short Film and fiction piece College Radio, Webcomic strip Baby Radio, and the flagship lit series Alien Radio. Also in development are Fish Radio which deals with mermaids and Atlantis and stuff, and Baby Radio: The Next Generation, centering around Todd's offspring.
- Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Mermaids Bell and Tulip are blue and green, respectively.
- Awesome Mc Coolname: Besides Todd Zeppelin (Half Todd Rundgren, half Led Zeppelin ), there's also Pearl Jam, Marcus Greil, and Todd's kids, Pink and Floyd.
- Fun T-Shirt: In addition to his L train ball cap, Todd's shirt has a classic rock-themed graphic on it, and it's never the same one twice.
- Minimalist Cast: In the Short Film, it was just Todd and Marcus. There was an actress hired to play Pearl Jam, but her scene ended up on the cutting room floor.
- Pokémon Speak: Ello says "Hello", iMoccaneer says "I'm Walkin' Here!"
- Translator Microbes: In the form of a typical set of headphones with a microphone attached to it.
- The Un-Reveal: "Martian Mystery Tour" has Todd and Numar figure out why the Mars rovers missed Numar and her people. The story ends before we find out why.
- Big Applesauce: Except I.M. Hip, all original characters come from or live in New York.
- Our Mermaids Are Different: Many come in different colors. But no matter how much they want to, they cannot assume a human form.
- Ridiculously Human Robots: Subway trains, gas pumps, clock radios, garbage cans, wristwatches... anything that has a face on it, particularly the ones designed by CUTE, which stands for Computerized Utilities and Talking Electronics.
