* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: The wizard's manual describes plain old things like teleportation in insanely impossible-to-understand words. Justified in that magic is based on telling the universe what you want it to do in a very specific manner. You NEED to be able to split hairs and use precise diction. Especially when you want to do things like bring air with you on your jaunt to the moon. If you miswrite a name, the named changes to fit.

* AnyoneCanDie: And they probably will, if they have a nickname. (Lampshaded in the short story "Not On My Patch", where Kit questions if it's really a good idea for Nita to nickname her jack'o'lantern.)

(Lampshaded in the short story "Not On My Patch", where Kit questions if it's really a good idea for Nita to nickname her jack'o'lantern.)) This could get interesting seeing that in Games Wizards Play, Nita gave [[spoiler: Jupiter]] a nickname.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalSubstitute: Amusingly, Roshaun's father Nelaid has developed into something like this to Dairine by ''Games Wizards Play'', though in addition to her actual father rather than instead of him. She (somewhat exasperatedly) refers to him as her 'space dad' at one point.

* ''Lifeboats'' - set after ''How Lovely Are Thy Branches'', but before ''Games Wizards Play''. Kit, Nita, Dairine and Rolan (among others) are called upon for an emergency evacuation of an entire alien race to new planets, because their moon is about to break up and the pieces will crash into the planet, in full-blown ''Armageddon'' style. Problem is, millions of the aliens almost inexplicably don't want to leave even in the face of unavoidable death and no one truly understands why. Kit, meanwhile, is fretting about Valentine's Day )[[spoiler:since he and Nita were promoted to OfficialCouple in ''A Wizard of Mars'']]) and even a race to save a world isn't enough to get it off his mind.
