* AuthorExistenceFailure: Bob Arnold, who hosted the website as well as being a valued member of the community, passed away in July 2011. His family shut off the servers after his passing, but his brother-in-law turned them back on after being contacted by the various communities he hosted. The character of Jennifer Stevens was "imported" from Arnold's series "[[http://stardustr.us/zapped Zapped!]]" and placed in Whateley as a former drama teacher as memorandum.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Most of the stories take place in 2006 or 2007. Consequentially, iPhones (which came out in June 2007) and other similar devices are considered new and exciting technology to the layperson in-story.
* ThrowItIn: In "Ayla and the Birthday Brawl", when everyone was introducing themselves on the jet, the author accidentally skipped Tennyo. When this was pointed out on the forums, her reaction was "Oops. Just... uh, pretend she was having a shy-fit. Yeah." Later, when she was writing the scene from Aquerna's point of view for "Straight from the Squirrel's Mouth", she had Aquerna notice Tennyo slink back when her turn approached.
