** Johnny shows behavior like this when he gives all of Lude's dates messed up back stories, and when he tries to convince himself that he had a happy ending. Obviously, making up stories is normal for him.

[[WMG:The House of ''House of Leaves'' will show up in Literature/TheFamiliar because it co-exists in the same Universe/reality]]

In The Familiar, Realic made "Clip 4". In Real Life, Danielewski published the short ''Clip 4'', writing as the fictional "Realic" from The Familiar, and in it, Navidson from ''House of Leaves'' is mentioned: "Very Navidson-y!" is an annotation on something that indeed calls back what happened in ''House of Leaves''.

The House will be explicitly mentioned in The Familiar. Maybe even visited by characters. Cas seems the most likely candidate, as she's touring around the U.S. anyway and might as well end up in Virginia where the House is.

Or, one of Cas's Clips from the Orb is a scene from [=HoL=], showing the Navidsons in the House.

Or, the FBI investigate the House, find something that leads them to L.A., then have to work with Oz.

Or, Realic had (prior to his involvement with VEM and his death) visited and investigated the House, to write an article about it (like he had investigated "Clip 4" and written an article about that) and that article by Realic about the House will be shown.

[[WMG:The book ''House of Leaves'' as it exists in Real Life, shows up as a book in Literature/TheFamiliar]]

''Clip 4'' makes it clear that characters from The Familiar know about what happened to the Navidsons, so the House and everything that happened there exists in the reality/Universe of The Familiar. Since in [=HoL=], at the end of the story the book ''itself'' is published In Universe, the ''House of Leaves'' book we know in Real Life, also exists In Universe in The Familiar.

Someone connected to the cat (Astair, Anwar, jingjing or even Xanther herself) reads ''House of Leaves'', and realizes the spooky events in [=HoL=] are connected to the cat (see entry about the "Minotaur/cat connection"), or starts to wonder about what "VEM" is.

[[WMG:Characters from ''House of Leaves'' will show up in Literature/TheFamiliar because they co-exist in the same Universe/reality]]

Johnny Truant will be a character in The Familiar. He lives in L.A., where six of the Familiar main characters live too.

He's most likely to meet Luther. Either Johnny is still a drug addict and is buying drugs from Luther (and/or arrested by Oz), or Johnny has gotten his life back together and now owns the tattoo shop Luther visits (after all, Johnny was originally an apprentice tattoo artist in [=HoL=], and Luther loves to get tattoos).

Or Johnny needs therapy from Astair for his trauma from reading Zampanò's records and his strained relationship with his mother Pelafina.

Navidson also might show up. His family moved to L.A. and they need therapy for the traumatizing events of ''House of Leaves'', and Astair becomes their therapist. Or he might be called in to do his job as a photographer, e.g. by Shnorkh's friend who's trying to document the Armenian genocide.

[[WMG:The Minotaur is now the cat in Literature/TheFamiliar, which will be named Redwood]]

The evil creature of ''House of Leaves'' was called Redwood. In October 2017, Volume 5 of The Familiar will be published, its title is
"Redwood", AND it's announced that in this Volume, the cat will be named. Putting two and two together: the cat will be named Redwood. And it is a manifestation, reincarnation or whatever you call it, of the Minotaur.

Would be even more brilliant if Xanther actually reads ''House of Leaves'' (the book as we know it in Real Life) In Universe and gets the idea to name the cat "Redwood" from that.

* Alternatively, it is in some way connected to SilentHill. "Physical manifestation of guilt", anybody?
** I think anybody who played the Catacombs level of ''SilentHill2'' before reading this book had a very distinct mental image of the Labyrinth in this story, regardless of how the book describes it, and possibly wonders if it might be a spiritual cousin of Pyramid Head the explorers hear rampaging in the distant darkness...

''[[EldritchLocation House]] of Leaves'' is not good or evil. It is a piece of nothing wrapped comfortably in narrative. Devour it. Chew on it. Taste the empty, [[WorldHalfEmpty and let your body learn to fight it.]]

[[WMG: The above theory is ''almost'' correct...]]

But the ultimate consequence is wrong. The book is not an infection, but an unstable vaccine. This explains the way those who have encountered [[EldritchAbomination the House]] sometimes recover (Karen, the children) and sometimes are overwhelmed (Holloway). The same is true for the book in-universe: the band at the end clearly found [[BrownNote the book]] meaningful without being destroyed by it, while Johnny barely survived his encounter with it.

* A [[GeniusLoci house]] that constantly changed form depending on someone else's subjective appearance would probably drive Rand completely bonkers, considering her obsession with the "objective." No wonder she wanted to get rid of the thing.

Each layer deeper into fiction we get, the less evidence remains of the Navidsons' existence. We are the fiction within the fiction within the fiction within the fiction within the Navidsons' reality.
