- Fan-Preferred Couple: Van and Ale are probably the most popular ship right now, in spite of the minor issue of Ale being very, very gay.
- Jake and Julie are also very well-liked because of Julie's Ensemble Dark Horse status.
- The Scrappy: Morgan. Literally every person to comment on the story has admitted to actively hating her, and even called for her to be very violently killed off.
- The Woobie: Both Orsini siblings to an extent, but especially Jane. No dad, her mother is a drunk who openly regrets ever having had children, she considers the people she hangs around with to be more like her brother's friends than her's, and she's managed to get herself into a situation where her ex-boyfriend is responsible for collecting the money she owes for drugs that she takes to more easily cope with all of this.
