** Kat and Annie's new dorm room looks like the one in ''Series/{{Friends}}''. [[spoiler:Reynardine is now roommates with robotic versions of Joey and Chandler.]]

Added DiffLines:

*Chapter 59, "Jeanne": [[spoiler: Annie's plan to free Jeanne is basically to do an ''Film/{{Inception}}'': the blue-haired fairy is the "architect" creating an imaginary Court for Jeanne to live in and populating it with literally FacelessMasses while helping Parley, the "forger", play the part of Jeanne's dear friend. Annie and Smitty are both "extractors" -- Annie, with Kat's help, is going after the mysterious green arrow that killed Jeanne's boyfriend and locked Jeanne's spirit in the gorge while Smitty's powers combined with Parley's ensures that everyone can *bip* in and out safely. Red is there for... moral support]].

** In the bonus page, Antimony is shown reading a book titled ''Tannhauser Gate'', a SpeculativeFiction meme that dates back to ''Film/BladeRunner''.

** The random patch of skin and hair (Robot's arm seems to have neither) could be a reference to ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', wherein Data the android gets a "skin graft" that starts out as a square inch of skin and hair.
** [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1595 A "sketch" of Robot with a muscular arm]] is similar to a picture in ''Manga/GhostInTheShell'' describing problems with ArtificialLimbs: Robot's power source is too strong and causes the "organic" arm to explode while a robot arm on a human body is too heavy.

* Tom called Lily "[[Series/SesameStreet Cookie Monster]]" when he named her in a tweet. She also shares his color scheme and seemingly has toned-down mannerisms and speech patters of Cookie Monster. She might be also a reference to another PerkyGoth GenkiGirl with much the same colour scheme, perpetual crazy smile and lack of inhibitions in the ''L.A.W.L.S.'' comic.

** Robot's temporary body is a small mouse with a wind-up key on it's back. The key is shaped suspiciously like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacanti_mouse an ear]].
** The giant robot in [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=422 this strip]], and the ensuing fight, a reference to .



** The earrings 'could' be minature Troll horns.
** And the colouration and general appearance of the couple that are the focus of the piece do suspiciously resemble a gender-swapped version of Jade- and Davesprite. (Spoiler Alert: They are not.)



* ''Chapter 37, "Divine"'', has had two so far:
** [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=1031 This page]] might be one to ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'': Sam unhesitatingly grabs Frodo's hand when he's in the "hospital" in front of all their friends (it was kind of a big deal while filming the movie) while Kat hesitates to hold Annie's hand despite (or perhaps because of) the only people around being [[OfficialCouple Robot, Shadow 2,]] and [[ShipperOnDeck Reynardine]].
* ''Chapter 48, "Tall Tales"'':
** By coincidence (Tom doesn't plan what days comics are posted in advance) [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1369 this calm meeting]] between a taller-than-average lady knight and a huge unwell misanthropic canine-themed warrior came just five days after [[Recap/GameOfThronesS4E10TheChildren this incredibly violent confrontation]] between a taller-than-average lady knight and a huge unwell misanthropic canine-themed warrior. Also present are the lady knight's shorter but talented male companion, a dangerous young girl who looks like her mother and acts like her father('s sister) that the canine-themed warrior "befriended", and the trickster who's manipulating them all (also just off stage is the psychotic woman who's going to [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge kill everyone even remotely associated with those who killed her loved one(s)]]... wait that could be [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters anyone]]; specifically it's [[spoiler: the dead one with white hair and white skin who was left in/by a river who now only (un)lives for vengeance]]).
* ''Chapter 49, "The Torn Sea"'':
** Careful Jenny, that kind of GeometricMagic [[EquivalentExchange can cost]] [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist an arm and a leg]] even if it's only a seeking spell.



* ''Chapter 51, "The Tree"'':
** Kat gives Annie a two-way radio so they can communicate in secret after Annie has been singled out by a new teacher, severely punished, and banned from doing the thing she loves; similarly Sirius Black gave [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix Harry Potter]] a two-way mirror so they could communicate in secret after Harry was singled out by a new professor, severely punished, and banned from doing the thing he loves (the difference being that Harry's punishment was [[TyrantTakesTheHelm wildly unfair]] while Annie's is [[JerkassHasAPoint a bit]] [[CheatersNeverProsper more reasonable]]).
*** Could also tie in to their (not unreasonable) mistrust of authority after being LockedOutOfTheLoop for years: It nearly backfired on Annie after Jack's soul was almost consumed by Zimmy's spiders because she tried to deal with it herself instead of telling someone more experienced with Zimmy's "issues"; Harry [[spoiler: refused to use the mirror (he didn't even really know what it was, only that it would let Sirius talk to him) so he wouldn't give away Sirius' location and then forgot about it, and because he didn't/couldn't consult with the more experienced members of Sirius' group (not wanting to harm Sirius combined with them not wanting to accidentally trigger the bit of Voldemort in Harry) he wound up putting everyone in danger which led to Sirius' death]].
* ''Chapter 52, Sneak'':
** It takes Kat several panels to get across a really long room to reach Annie, similar to [[MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail Sir Lancelot's charge to Swamp Castle]].
** The room itself is reminiscent of the one at the end of ''TwoThousandOne'', minus the Versailles furnishings: it's very AsceticAesthetic and not quite "right" (the room in ''2001'' had lights on the floor and mixed modern and antique furniture; this room has similar-looking lights in the ceiling and is just plain [[UnnecessarilyLargeInterior impractical]]). Another similar room is Syndrome's computer room in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' (huge, tall, plain, modernist room).
** A few people noticed that [[spoiler: Annie's separated ethereal half]] looks like a "stand" from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' (Eglamore once used a "Jojo pose"):
--->SomethingAwful: '''[=ZenMasterBullshit=]:''' User: Antimony Carver[,] Stand: 「We Didn't Start The Fire」; '''Nate RFB''': Annie has simply awakened her Stand, Magician's Red.
*** Because of [[spoiler: it's "haircut"]] it also looks like a [[http://cp12.nevsepic.com.ua/75/1352561345-0149949-www.nevsepic.com.ua.jpg Wayne Barlowe]] character. A lot of Barlowe's characters are from Hell...
* ''Chapter 53, Annie and the Fire'':
** Anthony in... [[EldritchLocation wherever he went]] looks a lot like [[Manga/DeathNote Kira and the less humanoid Shinigami]]. Others thought that a surgeon [[AnArmAndALeg sacrificing his dominant hand]] to see his loved one again was more like [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist an equivalent exhcange]].
** Surma is shown with giant [[RegalRinglets ringlets of hair]] (previously she had a [[QuirkyCurls cloud-like mass of curls]] or stylized spirals), similar to ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'''s mother Rose Quartz. Also similar to Rose they both have pink hair, both are loved by all, [[spoiler: they're not quite human (Surma is half fire-elemental; Rose is a humanoid living rock alien), both die/cease to exist after giving birth to their children because of the way their "souls" work, and their "muggle" husbands don't understand the process of their wives' "reproduction".]]
