** Caliborn's DeviantArt account is real ([[http://i-am-your-lord.deviantart.com/ here]]); it's not certain if he's actually on {{Vine}} or it was just simpler to host the gifs there, similar to using NewGrounds to host '''[S]Cascade'''. Vriska's Instagram account is also real ([[https://instagram.com/thevriskaserket/ here]]).

* TeasingCreator[=/=]TrollingCreator: Andrew Hussie's jokes on the fans are ''legendary''. Many of his self-inserts into the story are there solely to make fun of fans who were upset over certain plot developments. He also likes to throw {{Red Herring}}s into the plot liberally and then subvert the audience's expectations. He further has a habit of building up to a reveal or climax, and then abruptly cutting away to some other random part of the plot for a while, knowing that this annoys the readers to no end.

* GodNeverSaidThat: Begin Intermission 2. [[IncrediblyLamePun Cue]] hordes of MSPA forumers getting worked up over the fact that Lord English has a pegleg just like Squiddles antagonist Skipper Plumbthroat! There's only one problem: Plumbthroat ''doesn't'' have a pegleg. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeyZRNNO81M Take another look.]]

**[[Film/{{Hook}} Dante Basco]] became this, becoming associated with Homestuck 2.0 after reading the comic.



** The first page went up on April 13, or 4/13 (2009). Since then, the comic has used 413 as an ArcNumber all over the place. Given the way Hussie's been writing by the seat of his pants, and that he had originally tried to launch the story on April 10, it's safe to assume he built the arc number around the launch date rather than vice versa.
** Also, various anniversary animations have been released on 4/13, on the 413th day, and on similar dates based on the second Arc Number 612 - which itself is a MeaningfulReleaseDate. 612 is introduced in Act 5, which started on June 12th, 2010.

612 is introduced as an Arc Number in Act 5, which started on June 12th, 2010.



** In the Act 6 Act 4 flash, Jack Noir is seen marking off days in his jail cell as time passes for the Alpha session. At the end of the flash, twenty-one weeks and six days have passed (21 and 6, or 612 backwards). That many days after 11/11/11 is 4/12 of 2012, one day before the Beta kids will enter the Alpha session, and that many days ''before'' 11/11/11 is 6/12/11.

*** And, to take things even further, the art style and some of the universe mechanics for Midnight Crew suggest that it ''also'' takes place in the same universe as the previous ''MS Paint Adventures'' comic, ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth''.

**The various YouTube videos Homestuck links to (such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW3aCuxY1DY this one]]) often find their comment sections dominated by fans.



** That said, Homestuck was originally slated to end on its anniversary, then was pushed back to the following August, then to its second anniversary, and after falling back on "it'll be done when it's done", now it's planned to end on its ''seventh''.

** [[Characters/HomestuckGuardians Bro]]'s CoolShades being [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina]] shades. John calls them "dumb anime shades" as a nod to this, and WordOfGod says that it wasn't deliberate at first, but his forum-goers asked him about it and brought Kamina to his attention.

** The merchandise released in wake of [S] ACT 7 was in such high demand that the What Pumpkin store crashed hard. The fandom couldn't help but be amused that they managed to make one more site crash in the end.
