Well it's sort of a long question so I couldn't exactly put it in the title. When writers put little Easter eggs or references to other things in their stories what if readers don't get it? I've always had this question. Is it better to only write what you think your readers will understand or "get" or to write what you want and hope they get it and understand the little things to put it all together? There's a lot of complexity in my current story and I hope readers will be smart enough to put it together and say "oh I see what he did there." What are your thoughts on this?
