* JustForFun/AdOfWin: [[http://jephjacques.tumblr.com/post/3439350865/suck-it-willis Via Jeph's Tumblr]]. Oh, Yelling Bird. You always know exactly what to say.
* ArtistDisillusionment: Jeph generally likes his fans, but he hates his discussion forum due to its tendencies towards SeriousBusiness and Shipping. At one point it got so bad that he openly threatened to delete the whole forum should people keep posting that kind of stuff. He has considerably softened up since then.
* CreatorBreakdown: It turns out that if you combine quitting smoking with an apocalyptic hurricane and some truly spectacular Website/{{Tumblr}} bullshit Jeph will [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2309 snap.]] Or stab.
* CreatorsFavorite: Jeph rotates through a '''lot''' of them. Dora, Hanners, Emily and Claire are but the tip of the iceberg.
* {{Defictionalization}}:
** Most of the T-shirts sold in the store were first worn by members of the cast.
** Jeph has released quite a bit of music under the Deathmøle name, enough for several albums, in fact. It's quite good -- wholly instrumental post-metal composed entirely by Jeph.
* LyingCreator:
** [[BlatantLies "Everything is fine,]] [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2308 please do not email me".]] Yeah, [[SarcasmMode everyone believed that]]. Cue [[WhamEpisode the following comic's newspost.]]
** Jeph once claimed that he was "trolling" readers by [[ShipTease repeatedly Ship Teasing]] Marten and Claire. Not 400 strips later, they're in a relationship.
* MutuallyFictional: A really subtle one with ''Questionable Content'' and ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}''. Marigold wears an xkcd shirt [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1625 here]] (and fangirls over someone who looks like Randall Munroe [[http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1527 here]]), and [[http://xkcd.com/574/ this]] xkcd comic shows one of Hannelore's Twitter posts.
* ShrugOfGod: When asked at a convention if Jeph will ever reveal if Penelope is actually Pizza Girl or not, his response was "I will... when I decide if she is Pizza Girl or not."
* TrollingCreator: Long story short, Jeph Jacques has ''fun'' with shippers - so much, it was a tradition in the past to have "surprise kisses on friday", because there wouldn't be update between fridays and mondays. When asked about one StoryArc designed to piss off shippers in particular, [[WordOfGod his response]] was "See my entire comic". ShipSinking is a common occurrence in the comic, but in Jacques' defense, breakups for real-life twenty-somethings can be just as sudden, so this trait makes the comic actually kind of realistic. That said, as mentioned elsewhere in other subpages, ShipTease can truly reach epically ridiculous proportions, the epitome of which would be the early 2013 StoryArc where Marten, right after Claire revealed herself to be [[spoiler: transgender]], started to share a lot of screentime with her all of a sudden, going as far as asking her to accompany him to his father's wedding. The [[TheRant commentary]] for [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2405 this strip]] outright says "I am trolling you guys pretty hard".
** TeasingCreator: After being asked one too many times about where Steve has been, Jeph gives us [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2407 this.]]
** Although the trolling seems to have finally stopped with strip 2408, according to the [[TheRant commentary]]. Still, it's been four strips in a row being ''nothing but fan-trolling'' (at the [[ArcFatigue expense of storytelling]]).
* WriteWhatYouKnow: A webcomic about a bunch of indie music fans, musicians and heavy drinkers with mental problems. Jacques has (or had) all four.
