* During the climax of ''Page'', Lalasa starts talking about how she kept waiting for Kel to turn out as a BitchInSheepsClothing and almost being frustrating when Kel continued to be genuine, to trusting her and gaining confidence in herself (and her ability to take care of herself) because Kel believed and taught her that she should have it, and having faith that Kel would come to rescue her. In the face of this, Kel is able to break out of her panic and [[spoiler:continue the long climb down Balor's Needle]].

* Kel finally meets Alanna at the end of ''Squire'' and learns [[spoiler:that Alanna was her AnonymousBenefactor]], after eight years of being banned from seeing the hero who inspired Kel to try for her shield in the first place because of political nonsense. Alanna assures Keladry that she ''did'' care about the first openly female page, knowing from Neal that Kel worried about it, and goes on to tell her that she is just as important (if not moreso) to the girls of Tortall as Alanna because nobody can say that Kel got by with magic or divine favor, and how proud she is of Kel even though they never got to meet properly. Kel's awestruck reaction to Alanna showing up at her room and being praised by someone who's both a hero to the realm and a personal hero makes it seem worth those eight years.

** Also heartwarming is the absolute trust of Kel the kids have; during the rescue, a simple signal is enough to keep them totally silent and one of the youngest kids dashes to hug Kel as soon as he's safe.

* The beginning of ''Squire'', when Raoul tracks her down in the tiltyards and asks her to be his squire -- not because he feels sorry for her, but because he thinks she has tremendous potential not just as a knight, but as a commander, and wants to nourish that talent. Then admits that he'd ''meant'' to ask her straight after the 'big exams', but the Own was called away and he'd only just got back. All that time Kel spent worrying, and the best knight-master she could ask for was waiting in the wings.

** A book later, when she returns from Scanra having disobeyed a direct order and gone to rescue her people, she tells him to go ahead and yell at her; she deserves worse. His response? A [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming gentle kiss to her forehead]] and these words:

* After the above, Lord Wyldon finally expresses his approval and respect for Keladry. He does so by saying [[YouAreACreditToYourRace he wishes she had been born a boy]], but it's a huge moment for a man who, at the start of the first book, told the Lioness with great sincerity that girls were not meant for knighthood.

* Myles legally adopting Alanna in the third book through a Bazhir ceremony, as a capstone for their relationship in general. From the start, "Alan's" friends were angry at Baron Trebond for so neglecting his children, and Myles took it upon himself to recognize Alanna as a bright, likable, and ''worthy'' child, giving her the guidance and affection she deserved. After Alanna loses the man who was never really a father, Myles steps up and becomes her father in name as well as sentiment.

* An offhand remark by Cleon in ''Squire'' makes Kel realize that her friends have gotten into a lot of fights over the years over insults to her, without her knowledge. She feels humbled, but Cleon says that she's worth it.
