That's what confuses me. What sense does it make to make a Homestuck reference, then try and hide it from the people that would catch it? Who masks their foreshadowing in that way? I'm not following the logic here is the problem.
Relevant to some of this is optimisticDuelist's classpect theory on Joey Claire, which I shall link here.
I think the thing is, the Green Sun was always going to look like a star from somewhere because....well, that's what stars are. But there was never a place in Homestuck where that was the case. So this suggests, if it really is the Green Sun, that the vantage point is from somewhere in the Medium, but possibly not a part of it comic readers would be familiar with. Which, along with the key, gives us some hints and/or foreshadowing about Joey's mom and/or just the world of Hiveswap and Homestuck that could come into play later in the story.
And even if it's NOT the Green Sun, it's still provocative as all hell, given what Joey says about the stars' positioning and what we know the key does. In either case, it definitely strikes me as something that we're going to, or at least could learn more about later, and I for one can't wait.
On another note, I'm interested in the idea of the Js being Light. The flashing light in the tree house and its description are somewhat suggestive, and it was pointed out to me that it's the creature in the water in that one painting that makes Joey nervous, which could be an allusion to Cetus. But I'm surprised this is the second time I've seen someone suggest Joey's class could be Maid when her reactions both at home and in Dammek's Hive seem to be a cheeky indication that that's exactly the class she's not. She refuses to clean when you prompt her to in the house, she says none of them like doing dishes or taking out the garbage, repeatedly states that the mess in Dammek's hive is not her problem and, most explicitly, says point blank that she is 'not Dammek's maid'. Also, the person in that link claiming both that they know what Sylph's do and that they're paired with Maids is annoying as fuck.
I'm of a couple of minds about the kids being Light. On the one hand, seeing more classpects with a familiar aspect would be neat. On the other hand, it's still kind of frustrating that the kids would be an aspect we already know a good deal about compared to aspects like Doom, Blood, Mind and Rage which I would love to know more about. On the other hand again, because we don't' know much about those, it's probably better to go with something that's more familiar, as if there are hints to that in the game, they'd be easier to pick up on. Eh.
