* Madeline's concern about mimic and cube after their capture in the latest story is heartwarming.
* A rather goofy example, but the fact that Rusty dragged Madeline all the way to the inn while she was unconscious, and [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness didn't eat her armor]].
* In [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-17/ here]] Zar looks really pissed at Madeline for a moment, but then you can see him soften and he ends up giving her a "magic" weapon.
