Ascended Fanboy: Dusk, the fanfic's writer, was contacted by Blizzard themselves to write stories for the World of Warcraft franchise after Razor Hill exploded in popularity on the original Battle.Net forums. Interestingly, several Cataclysm subquests bear his trademark writing style.
Ascended Meme: Tednugent (renamed Tednug for copyright reasons) and Scratchfever were added by Blizzard as NPCs to the game. They patrol the way between Orgrimmar and Razor Hill. Every now and then they stop in front of the road that leads to the Harpy Nests, stare for a moment and say "Later", before resuming their patrolling.
