Weird plot shit is Homestuck's version of weird puzzle shit. It basically involves parallel plots and meaningless or meaningful coincidences. Weird plot shit is much more confusing than weird puzzle shit.
Weird plot shit is a derivation of weird puzzle shit, as there are no actual puzzles to figure out in order to solve the game - It's the nature of the game itself and its plot that makes it so confusing. It is almost never referenced in its single appearance, Homestuck, but it is very clearly and obviously there. None of the characters feel that the situation they are in is weird plot shit, which is probably why it has never been addressed as such. In fact, many of their problems are more precisely rather weak, more direct forms of weird puzzle shit rather than weird plot shit. Some characters are not aware of the consequences of the weird plot shit, others are too focused on their own problems to address it, one is in utter disbelief of it, and the last treats it all as normal and thus has no reason to question it. To the MSPA Reader, however, a lot of weird plot shit is about trying and making sense of it. If there is any sense to be made out of all the weird plot shit, it just may prove to be critical to beating the game.
