* During a routine mail-drop from a Havenite courier-ship, a courier ship's captain is being questioned over the comm. because the local StateSec detachment is claiming that they haven't given them all their mail. The courier explains that they have, and StateSec demands remote access to their computers to double check. Once they do, they start demanding to know why the courier ship ''deleted'' their mail. The courier, harried and scared out of their wits, tries to explain that they couldn't have done that, because they don't have the access codes. Then the StateSec Major who was talking to the courier-ship switches over to his commander: a full ''General'', who similarly demands to know what the courier ship is playing at. Terrified, the courier ship explains that it is physically impossible for them to have deleted, altered, or otherwise gotten rid of this phantom message that General Chernock wants to see. Finally, General Chernock dismisses him, and turns to his second-in-command, and asks if he thinks that the courier was telling the truth. The second-in-command says that he does, and the reader finally learns what the important message had been about:

* In "Beauty and the Beast", also from ''Beginnings'', Allison Chou, curious about new transfer student Alfred Harrington (most particularly, why her ex has taken such a hate-on for him), engineers a CrashIntoHello with him so she can get to know him. She miscalculates just how fast Alfred is moving, and how much inertia he's carrying due to his HeavyWorlder status, and the petite woman is nearly sent tumbling ass over kettle by the resulting collision.

- Then again, there is a sort of RunningGag in the series discussing the relative seniority of Grayson and Manticoran nobility, including the occasional argument in favor of a Grayson Steadholder being senior to the Queen of Manticore on the basis of them being heads of state ''and'' many Steadings (though not Harrington Steading) being older than Manticore itself. Honor's dual Manticore-Grayson status has on many occasions served as sand in the machinery of both military and social expectations.
