* SiblingSenioritySquabble: In ''The Gathering Edge'', Chernak is older than Stost by all of seven seconds. They don't squabble about it, though; in fact, Stost has got in the habit of regarding Chernak as his wise elder sister and following her lead in everything, even though they went through training and active service side-by-side and he knows everything she does.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: A few instances.
** In "Moonphase", Lute and Moonhawk tell Priscilla that the Sintian church has done everything it can to keep their reincarnations apart ever since the last time they were reincarnated together (covered in "Where the Goddess Sends" and related stories)—implying that there might be serious repercussions for the church now that Priscilla and Shan have finally gotten back together. Certainly the church has some Balance coming to it after the way it kicked Priscilla out and declared her dead. As yet, however, there's been no sign that any Balance toward Sintia is forthcoming.

* SidenoteFullStory:
** In ''Carpe Diem'', one of the main characters is driven through the city of Solcintra by a snarky cab driver who caught the imagination of fans and prompted many to write in asking for more about her. The novella ''Skyblaze'' gives the cab driver a name, Vertu dea'San, and tells what happened to her during after the climactic battle that occurred in Solcintra a few novels later.
** In ''Scout's Progress'', one of the chapter heading quotes is a message home by a pilot, one of Daav's ancestors, giving a brief account of a stopover at space station where he was overcharged for emergency repairs. "The Space at Tinsori Light" is the story of that pilot, and reveals that there was something much more sinister going on at the space station than the brief account would indicate.
