* Webcomic/OzyAndMillie creator Creator/DanaSimpson also does some songwriting. One strip had the lyrics to one of her songs appear, and Felicia mocked the heavy use of overly emotional metaphors.

--->'''Fan''': At this point, I'm not sure whether any of us actually like ''Homestuck'' or if we're all just ironically reblogging ''Homestuck'' hate.

--->'''Fan''': At this point, I'm not sure whether any of us actually like This fandom does so many things ironically, I can't tell if it's actual self-hate or irony. Actually let me rephrase that: I don't think ''anyone'' can tell if everyone hates ''Homestuck'' or if we're all just ironically reblogging ''Homestuck'' hate.

** And occasionally the plot, as in [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2001-04-25 this strip]].
-->'''Kevyn:''' Look at it this way, guys. If you have an [[MonkeysOnATypewriter infinite number of monkeys banging on an infinite number of hypernet terminals, for an infinite amount of time]], eventually you'll crank out all the great works of Howard Tayler.
-->'''Narrator:''' Note: This can actually be done with three monkeys in fifteen minutes.

** They later do a more realistic drawing of themselves... [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2012/04/02 their ''actual'' selves]], rather than their cartoon personas.

** Also Phil's in-story avatar is a storyteller who renders anyone forced to listen to one of his stories comatose with boredom.

Added DiffLines:

** Even the fandom itself is frequently self-deprecating, to the extent that "Homestuck trash" is a common FanCommunityNickname. It's especially prevalent on Tumblr, where posts mocking Homestuck tend to get insane amounts of notes...which are largely from avid fans of the comic.

* ''SomethingPositive'' occasionally features Choo-Choo Bear "off-stage" to address the reader directly, declaring that his author is a lazy, talentless hack who can't get his act together.

** In another strip, Milholland gives a nod to the FourthWall when [=PeeJee=] asks, "Why does everything around here revolve around sex?" and Davan, who's reading a book, mutters, "Bad writing." When glanced at in curiosity, he says, "I'm reading a JohnGrisham book, worst writing I've ever seen." Milholland also draws filler strips with himself in them, usually self-deprecating in some way. This version of his AuthorAvatar even has a razor blade with hands and feet as his muse, who constantly says/does whatever he can think of to make Milholland miserable or want to kill himself.

* A slightly more subtle version in Spinnerette. Protagonist Super Heroine Heather admits to hating manga style comics. Odd considering the general art style of the comic.
