* ArgumentOfContradictions - Known as "the Equius way of settling arguments" in-universe (due to its use in ''Homestuck''), Karkat attempts to be GenreSavvy about it and cut Equius off after a single "D --> No", but ends up doing it anyway. Hussie and Eridan also partake in this.


* TyopOnTheCover - All the characters' chumhandles are misspelled, though for varying reasons:
** The beta kids vary between different chumhandles (though, Rose prefers to just add numbers to hers), because those keep getting taken by different people.
** The trolls each have their own misspelling, which they stick to consistently.

Described by the author as "an open love letter to the ''Homestuck'' fandom", ''Calliope's Update Girl'' features a rather impressive scope of topics, ranging from Andrew Hussie's daily life to the interaction between him and the fandom, as well as the characters, and the prospect of both the characters encountering ''Homestuck'' and the fandom encountering the characters. It also has spawned a series of related fanfics that, even though they're not quite in the same universe, share themes.

* UnusualChapterNumbers - One of [=ASBusinessMagnet=]'s favorite tropes. The chapters of ''Calliope's Update Girl'' and, after some rearranging, ''The Homestuck Character Support Group (Volume 2)'' are grouped to "stages" with 14 chapters each, and the chapter number is typically given as "stage.chapter", with two exceptions: Loading Screens 1 and 2 (Loading Screen 1 is in ''Calliope's Update Girl'', between Stages 2 and 3, and Loading Screen 2 is at the beginning of ''The Homestuck Character Support Group (Volume 2)''), for which the Roman numerals is used, and Stage 3, which only has 7 chapters.

-->In it, Hussie's role would have been exaggerated to feature an "Update Factory" where Homestuck is produced... and you can already see where this is going. John falls down into a river of cake, Rose becomes a "grimberry", Jade is teleported to a landfill by Bec and Dave is shrunk via spacebending powers, etc.
