--> "I knew there was more to you than meets the eye." He winked at Tash, and she felt the Force flow between them, just as she had during their first meeting. It was a warm, electric tingle, as though she were on one end of a wire with Luke at the other. Together, they made a connection.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Clones]]
* The nomadic Dantari welcomed our heroes and let them travel with them, and the kids have managed to make friends.
* During the rockslide, Hoole turns into a dewback to shield the Arrandas and some Dantari, and is bruised despite the strength of this shape. Tash saves a CryingLittleKid.
* When Tash thinks it was Maga who ''started'' the rockslide, she tells Hoole, who first tells he she needs to be tolerant of Maga, not hating him for his dislike of her, then says that if he ''did'' start the rockslide she should tell the elders. It's a little demonstration of how he trusts her judgment a lot more now than at the series' start.
* Tash admitting she misjudged Maga, and what's more, really feeling it.
* Hoole wants Tash's opinion on the characters they meet across the river. Then there's more trust.
* Everyone has stopped assuming ItsProbablyNothing or that anyone who saw something odd was mistaken.
* Tash choosing to reject TheDarkSide.
* That conversation with Maga, where ''he'' has to be convinced that it's not Tash's fault, and ''Tash'' confronts her prejudices.
--> For the second time, Tash saw past the anger that had built up between them. This time she saw why he had been chosen as garoo. She could see his mind at work, judging her words, judging her expression, reaching an intelligent decision. He wasn't using the Force or any other power, but he was probing her just the same, using only his wits. She realized that she had to stop thinking of him as less intelligent just because his people wore skins and hunted with primitive weapons.
* Tash's [[OrphansPlotTrinket pendant]] gives her a way out of her TomatoInTheMirror wonderings.
--> Tash pulled at the chain around her neck until the pendant slid free of her jumpsuit. [[spoiler: Vader could clone her body. He could even scan her mind. But he couldn't copy everything. Not Tash's love for her parents. No clone could feel that way.]]
--> In a split second, Tash recalled her earlier wish to talk with her parents, to ask them how she would know her true self. Now she knew what they would have told her. Emotions like love and kindness and caring-the same feelings that allowed her to use the light side of the Force-would help her see herself clearly.
* How this SpotTheImposter is resolved.

[[WMG: The Hunger]]

* The Children [[spoiler: ImAHumanitarian are cannibals]], but this is treated with a lot more sympathy than usual.

Added DiffLines:

* Dash Rendar is kind of a cocky asshole, just like in ShadowsOfTheEmpire. But while his pride makes it tough for him to cooperate with adults, he'll go out of the way to try and help the Arrandas, even [[TakingTheBullet Taking The High Pressure Water Burst]] for Zak.
* He's suspected for the troubles aboard the ship, but this suspicion dies down after he riskily solves a ContinuousDecompression issue.
--> Zak expected Dash to brag, but instead, the pilot stood up unsteadily on his feet. He looked like a man who had stepped a little too close to the edge of a cliff.
--> "Luck," he said, a little shakily. "Pure luck. But I hope now you know I'm not the one trying to kill us."
--> Hajj nodded. Zak didn't say anything, but he couldn't help seeing Dash in a new light.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The Doomsday Ship]]
* Tash is unfazed when Zak accuses her of being DistractedByTheLuxury aboard ''Star of Empire''. She wants him to get out of their cabin and see more of the ship, but she can see he's not going to join her, so she arranges for him to get a look at its main computers.
* The ship's captain is enough of a ReasonableAuthorityFigure to believe Zak isn't to blame for the blackout, and talks to him about computers.
* Hoole tries to maintain order during the near-riot after the alarm.
* Tash and Zak leave their EscapePod instantly to help a CryingLittleKid.

* Hoole's aware that the plan is dangerous and alarming to the kids, and says he won't make them do it. Of course, they do it.

[[WMG: Spore]]
* Tash thinks that there's one person who could really relate to her and understand what she's going through, and could talk to her about the Force, but she has no way to contact Luke. Awww!
* She's lonely, so she and Zak bicker without malice in a very normal way.
* Although the ActualPacifist nature of the Ithorians can get annoying to our heroes, they do their best to respect it. In return the Ithorians are much more lax about broken restrictions than most people.
* Zak remembers the previous book, and swore he'd never keep a secret like that again.
* Tash repeatedly tries to connect with the Bafforr trees through the Force. Her success is hit or miss, but when it works it's a little touching.
* Another reminder that Hoole has come to care for his charges and doesn't like them walking into danger. Two, actually. He even encourages Tash when it comes time to fly into the AsteroidThicket after her brother.
* Despite her Ithorian pacifism, Fandomar is determined not to let TheVirus get free, so she does some very un-Ithorian things but doing them tears her up enough to cry TearsOfRemorse.
* The Bafforrs help Tash a lot during a very harrowing several chapters. "The answer came to Tash so quickly and easily that she almost laughed. She didn't know if she'd figured it out for herself, or if it was the Force, or if it was yet another message from the Bafforr trees. All three seemed to be getting mixed together."
* Tash confronts [[spoiler: virus-controlled Zak and Hoole]] and tries to reach them with the Force.
--> The Force connection wasn't broken (it could never be broken, she realized), but she didn't know how to use it. She didn't have the skill. [...]
--> At the last second, Tash imagined the Force rising up around her like a wall. She didn't know if it was the best thing to do. She didn't even know if it was the right thing to do. [[spoiler: All she knew was that she loved her brother and her uncle, and to save them she had to defend herself.]]

* DV-9 has been PutOnABus because he was tired of all the danger... and the heroes let him go. They don't need him anymore - Hoole and the Arrandas are much closer to each other, and they have more trust.



--> "Look, Tash. I want to apologize for getting on your nerves. I know you want to do other things, without me. It's just hard. You've always been my best friend-even if you are my sister. Anyway, it's kind of hard for me to sit back and watch you go off somewhere else. But if it's what you want, I can get used to it, I guess."

[[WMG: The Swarm]]
* When Zak kills a flying creature that was attacking him, his first thought is about getting caught, but he regrets killing it rather than just scaring it off, too. When he hears that this may have upset the delicate ecological balance of the garden, he repeatedly tries tell people despite how it might go badly for him - though he gets interrupted each and every time.
* [[NobleDemon Captain Thrawn]] is cold and sinister - well, he would be, he's Thrawn. But he's not put off by the hatred Tash immediately feels for him for being Imperial, and he gets his companions, who ''are'', to stand down. Unlike most people in this series he recognizes that they are children and not threatening to his pride or operations, so he doesn't take offense to them being rude.
* Later he goes as far as to explain himself. A little. Well, as much as Thrawn ever explains himself to anyone. He doesn't like the kids, but nor does he bear them malice.
* Tash hates Imperials, but when she finds one prone and covered in beetles her first instinct is to try and help.
* Both Tash and Zak hug their uncle when he comes back after the shreev thing.
* Hoole's aware that the plan is dangerous and alarming to the kids, and says he won't make them do it. Of course, they do it.

* Zak decides to free a random prisoner just on good faith.faith.
* Hoole decides to trust Zak's instincts, if only for a bit. And he's noticed that the siblings are usually inseparable.
* Zak wants to ask Hoole about why Tash has been less chummy with him, and Hoole actually sits down with him and has a serious talk about growing up, which helps Zak to realize that his uncle really does care, and not just on a responsibility level.
--> Hoole's face softened more than Zak had ever seen. The hard lines vanished. Although they'd been together for almost a year now, Zak and Hoole had never had a serious talk.
* The siblings make up after all their squabbling, and both of them manage to be fairly mature about it.
