* ''Lifeboats'' - 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.

* NewYorkIsOnlyManhattan: Averted. The protagonists live in Nassau County, on Long Island, and the series consequently spends quite a bit of time there. The entire second book is set in The Hamptons. (That said, the main action of the first book does take place on a day trip to Manhattan.)

** There's also an in-character moment of this in book seven, when Nita and Kit visit an alien world and see a recording of that species's Choice. In the recording, the whole thing goes down in about fifteen minutes, and not only does the species come out of it with lifespans in the thousands of years and without any particular cataclysm, when they die their souls stay in the world and keep communication with their loved ones. And not only does the Lone One not do anything about this, She's bound herself into the world and can't leave... so they end up ''building her a place to stay'', as a reminder of what to avoid, which mostly gets used as a ''tourist attraction.'' She's still there. They go to visit. Compared to life on Earth... [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu these guys just punched out Cthulhu]], and seem to have gotten away with it on an amazing scale. [[spoiler: "Seem" being the key word there.]]
