* HeIsAllGrownUp: Throughout the series, Hort goes through a process leading to this. In the first book, he is short, gangly and scruffy with a submissive personality.

** This comes back to seriously bite her [[spoiler: in book three.]] To put things simply: Sophie has convinced Tedros to give her one more chance [[spoiler: despite the fact that he and Agatha are in love.

[[spoiler: Sophie's explanation boils down to, "IJustWantToBeSpecial, I was born for the luxury and grandeur that comes with being a queen, and Agatha would be better off living a simple life on her own." Tedros then rejects her because she never once mentioned loving him as one of the reasons she was so desperate to be with him.]]

* PetTheDog: A few key moments. Sophie gets one for telling Agatha, early in the story, that while she may have befriended Aggie as part of her shallow "good deed", she had come to value their friendship far more than that. She gets another later when, hearing Hort say that if he could love, he'd love her, she refrains from kicking him out of his room.

"Sophie, that's his ''looks''! Tedros won't feel a connection if you just like him because he's handsome. How is that different from every other girl?"\\
