* ''Love and Capes'' is mostly a warm and lighthearted book, but Abby gets a genuinely heartbreaking moment near the end of #10:

* The death of [[spoiler: Windstar]] in ''Ever After''. Especially when [[spoiler:Windstar]]'s father painfully observes that the rest of the world doesn't believe that the death of a superhero is real...but it's real to him.
