[[caption-width:300:The magic system rendered in cool symbols.]]

A webcomic created by Katie Sweet.

Part one, "One Way or Another", was finished in 2007 and is, aside from several color panels, in black & white. Thanks to the frequency of updates (5 times per week) it counts 854 strips in just 2 1/2 years. Part two, "Gatecrash", started in 2008 and is still ongoing in full color, and as of November 2013 is set to surpass part one without slowing. Sadly full color means "only" three updates per week -- which is still as much as most webcomics.

Part one follows the wandering of Faevv, a young outcast that goes to live on the Raft, a ship the Juathuur ("true wanderers", humans with powers bestowed by the gods a long time ago) use to move around. Having an outsider's look on the Raft, however, she realizes that life there is not what it seems, and it is far from the freedom she longs for. Politics and intrigues are everywhere, old grudges still lurk in the mind of the leader, and [[BreakingTheFellowship her group splits]] for lack of cohesion. So when she meets Weijuaru, a young king who wants to challenge the gods themselves to find absolute freedom, she is quick to get away from the path set for her. And that is just the beginning of the journey.

Part two takes off after a timeskip. Faevv is now [[spoiler: in service of the gods]] and travels between other worlds in search of her way. Meanwhile, a plague ravages Fael and Ha Nuul waxes mighty, and the Juathuur are still far from recovered from earlier battles. Old enmities stir and new problems arise, while many characters have problems of their own, and the plot thickens again...

The comic starts [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=1 here]], the second part is [[http://gatecrash.juathuur.com/?id=1 here]], and [[http://gatecrash.juathuur.com/ this]] is the most recent strip.

----
!!This series provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: [[strike: Faevv, Mijuu, Sojueilo, Aeliss]] ''everyone'' but Shugasi, Neilli and Tokal.
* ActualPacifist: Neilli.
* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: Lif is scary.
* AHeroToHisHometown: Weijuaru wants to make Erab Adur safe and prosperous, and his people are loyal to the death. Everyone else? Other nations fear a nation ruled by the super-powered Juathuur, and the Raft hates him for sheltering and encouraging deserters.
* AndYourLittleDogToo: Rowasu's promise to Sojueilo.
* AmplifierArtifact: well, the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin amplifier]]. Also Soveshei's serum.
* AndThisIsFor: [[spoiler: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=477 Bivv.]]]]
* AntiVillain: Weijuaru isn't really interested in much that most people would consider villainous - if he was left alone, he'd never directly trouble the Raft. But his "independent Juathuur" state is an implicit existential threat to the Raft, constantly drawing people away. That, and he provides support to people like Beisaru and Rowasu, without caring much at all what they get up to as long as they also keep Meidar off his back out of mutual self-interest.
* AnyoneCanDie: established with [[spoiler: Bivv's death. Used a lot in the final chapters.]]
* {{Arcadia}}: The Lost Oasis.
* ARealManIsAKiller: Thomil gets called 'spineless' and 'an insult' for being a healer and not, you know, a murderer. It gradually comes out that he used to be a perfectly capable fighter and was well on his way to being one of Meidar's favorites, but then [[spoiler:his girlfriend Neilli killed herself]] and he made the switch, so it becomes more obvious that the others think Thomil lost his nerve and is now wasting his potential (as well as ignoring his duty), forcing others to step up in his place.
* AttackReflector: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=144 Nice move, Thom.]] [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=479 And again...]]
* AxCrazy: Rowasu. Sometimes, he's got that itch...
* ArtEvolution: most evident at the beginning of Gatecrash, with the passage to full color.
* BadassCape: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=310 fwooosh]]!
* BadassLongRobe: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=324 Beisaru]].
* BattleInTheRain: the Fava flashback.
* BloodFromTheMouth: [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=141 cough cough cough]]
* BloodKnight: Mijuu is willing to push herself to the limits to win a friendly spar. But who fits this trope to a T is Sojueilo.
* TheBigGuy: Ojuaro and Ushaed.
* BloodierAndGorier: the gore content gets upped starting from [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=126 here]].
* BloodOath: Rowasu does that all the time (hence the scars). [[spoiler: he breaks the last one.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Beisaru can control people with word magic.
* BreakingTheFellowship: Faevv's group? Dejoru follows Veithel, Faevv goes to speak with the gods and Ratheel gets left behind. When they reunite, there act slightly hostile with each other. Expect to read [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=418 "a lot happened after you left!"]] frequently.
* BringIt: Rowasu is pretty confident in his swordmanship (and rightfully so).
* BrokenPedestal: sort of. [[spoiler: Arvval is the same as always, his bigotry is just more manifest after Faevv goes to the 'dark side'.]]
* BrownNote: Rowasu's distinctive screech is used in battle to distract and confuse enemies. Sonic attacks are generally his forte, magically.
* BulletDodgesYou: actually, the 'bullet' is ''unraveled''. The first manifestation of Faevv's powers.
* BullyingADragon: Faevv grew up despised by normal humans for being juathuur. Despite being of a very important, very powerful Juathuur bloodline.
* BurnBabyBurn: [[spoiler: Bivv's]] funeral pyre.
* CainAndAbel: Rowasu and his half-brother.
* {{Catchphrase}}: Rowasu has one, sure as sky.
* ChainedToARock: Merlu and, literally, Lok.
* TheChick: Most people's opinion of Neilli, as a pacifist and healer.
* {{Chickification}}: averted, and Faevv strongly feels against any accusation of this. In Dej's words, she is being charmed by Juar. Her reply to this?
---> '''Faevv''': You make it sound like I'm some naive pushover. You made a choice, didn't you? Why can't I do the same? I have my own mind. I can make my own decisions.
* ConLang: [[http://www1.atwiki.com/juathuur/pages/8.html Juathuuvei]], the Juathuur language. Mainly used for written signs, honorific titles and character names. It uses some phonemes not really found in English so some spellings (like names) are often best matches rather than perfect representations. That ''ju'' might be pronounced like a "hwa" noise (as in Weijuaru or Juathuur) or a "wh" noise (kind of like "why," as in Sojueilo's name).
* ConvenientlyTimedAttackFromBehind: [[spoiler: Veithel when Soveshei confronts Rowasu. Soveshei isn't pleased.]]
* CombatMedic: Thomil.
* ComesGreatInsanity: Lok.
* CoolMask: Weijuaru when he gets to political business.
* CouldntFindAPen: Rowasu at the end of chapter eleven.
* CuttingTheKnot: And moving the box. [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=112 Now you're thinking with shadow magic!]]
* CycleOfRevenge: one of the main points of the story. Thomil is about the only one who seriously tries to break it.
* DaddysGirl: Veithel. [[spoiler: The feeling is not completely mutual.]]
* DarkActionGirl: at least Lifolei and Thlassa. And Maybe Veithel.
* DeathGlare: the local AxCrazy psychopath [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=151 seems pissed off.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: to Neilli.
* DieOrFly: see BulletDodgesYou, above. Also, for a while Faevv's powers work only according to this trope. [[spoiler: Juinn, to, first manifest his powers in this kind of situation.]]
* DirtyBusiness: [[spoiler: Meidar is the queen of this trope. Juar has his moments too.]]
* DisappearedDad: Faerun.
* DishingOutDirt: Maerril is an unusual example, being a slim, passionate, arrogant woman.
* DistressCall: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=139 here]].
* DynamicEntry: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=140 Sojueilo enters the battle! (and the comic)]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=412 why is Faevv blushing?]] Oh!... oh.
** Also... [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=489 What are you exactly proposing, Soveshei?]]
* DressingAsTheEnemy: Sojueilo, Thomil and Mijuu.
* DrivenToSuicide: Neilli. [[spoiler: Meidar, having decided that healing sucks, tries to train her as a torturer. It doesn't work. Possibly a SecretTestOfCharacter directed at her boyfriend, Thomil.]]
* DueToTheDead: Inverted. Rowasu respect Maerril's death with the Luduuth Lo, nine days in which he will spill no blood. Before coming to get revenge. Meanwhile, Faevv's team makes a funeral cart explode.
* TheEngineer: Sev'vil.
* EnigmaticMinion: Veithel. Until the end, it's unclear if she cares for Ratheel and Dej or if she is willing to betray them for her father's benefit. [[spoiler: Both, actually. And she will sacrifice to save Dejoru AND follow her father's wishes for her.]]
* EvilDuo: Maerril and Rowasu.
* ExactWords: Weijuaru has forbidden Juathuur to shed one another's blood under his roof. [[spoiler:So Soveshei challenges Rowasu to a fight on the roof of the palace's tallest tower.]]
* EyeScream: Shuugo, in a flashback. And the hand of the sky.
* FaceHeelTurn: Veithel, pre-beginning of the story.
* FacialMarkings: And body markings. Most juathuur have them, and they tend to be similar in a family. Also Thomil adopted Neilli's, and [[spoiler: Dej adopted Mijuu's.]] Juathuur traditionally had children with normal humans as they wandered and marked the children to identify them later when it was time to pick them up for initiation into the tribe. Emojuuel, for example, never had any because both his parents were Juathuur and he was raised within the tribe [[spoiler:and also his father died before he could give Mo any marks]].
* FakingTheDead: Veithel, before the beginning of the story. [[spoiler:Neilli, too]].
* FarmBoy: Juinn.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Merlu, an embodiment of wandering and freedom, is perpetually bound to a tree.
* FieryRedhead: Ratheel.
* ForcefulKiss: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=177 How romantic.]]
* ForTheEvulz: averted, but discussed [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/1/?strip_id=254 here]]. And in the whole comic.
* GadgeteerGenius: Sev'vil and his idol, Anira.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: [[spoiler: Arvval slapping Faevv. It works, but not for long.]]
* GiantHandsOfDoom: Maerril's [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=137 style of combat]].
* {{Golem}}: one of Beisaru's many tricks.
* GreenThumb: Soveshei and Veithel. [[spoiler: The latter actually ''turns'' into a tree!]] And, well, Merlu.
* GreenEyedMonster: [[spoiler: Beisaru is convinced that Meidar killed his lover out of jealousy. He's wrong. But she is jealous all right.]] Also, Veithel [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=419 has signs of this]]. And Dejoru. Oh god, Dejoru.
* GreyAndGreyMorality: A major point of the series. On one hand, Meidar always works to protect people and stop war, while Weijuaru longs for absolute freedom for everyone. On the other hand, Meidar is a ControlFreak and TheChessmaster, while Weijuaru is a manic VisionaryVillain. Beisaru is a Jerk Ass, but he acts like he does partly because [[spoiler: he thinks Meidar killed his lover]]. Rowasu is an AxCrazy psychopath, but [[spoiler: reunites Juinn with his father, kills Meidar for her crimes and decides not to kill Sojueilo.]] Thomil is a genuinely NiceGuy, but spineless. Soveshei drugs Faevv and Ratheel, and [[spoiler: had an hand in the killing of Dej's parents, but he cares for their kids.]] Veithel is... complicated.
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=429 and sleepy.]]
* HalfHumanHybrid: Thoss and Thlassa are half-solluu, half-juathuur. Technically the Solluu are, as a people, also Half-Human Hybrids - [[AllThereInTheManual according to the wiki]], long ago a certain god took an interest in a merpeople legend of the world and decided to make it real.
* HalfIdenticalTwins: Again, Thoss and Thlassa.
* HardWorkHardlyWorks: Zigzagged and discussed. Some of the Juathuur bloodlines have access to magics that the rest just can't replicate, and which gives them a huge edge. However, some of the more dangerous Juathuur are those who have simply worked their butts off to become the best at what they do - Sojueilo and Rowasu could at least put up a challenge for most any other Juathuur, and Beisaru is flat out the most dangerous person in "One Way." As Beisaru puts it, Arvval wields his power with "blood instinct," while "[[BadassBoast I wield mine with understanding.]]"
* {{Heroic BSOD}}: [[spoiler: Dejoru.]]
* HiddenEyes: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=218 Here.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: All the juathuur who deserted the Raft did so because Meidar screwed with them in one way or another ([[TitleDrop hey wait...]]). So basically, the whole conflict she is fighting is her fault. [[spoiler:She ends up getting killed for it, too]].
* HoverTank: Thanks to Fluur rings.
* HumanShield: Rowasu with Juinn.
* IAmNotLeftHanded: Rowasu's sword? [[spoiler: A ''handicap''.]]
* IfYouEverDoAnythingToHurtHer: Ratheel to Veithel. [[spoiler: It definitely doesn't work.]]
* IHaveManyNames: Merlu (aka the Second, aka the god-in-the-tree... and that's it, for now).
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: Ivitho and Mo.
* InterestingSituationDuel: Soveshei and [[spoiler: Rowasu]], on top of a tower.
* InTheBack: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=491 sorta.]]
* IsThatWhatHeToldYou?: Soveshei to Dejoru. But with the amount of secrets on the Raft, he could have said that to nearly everyone.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: Mijuu.]] On a ''flower''. On a giant flower with a stiff central spine.
* InformedAbility: Thomil is a great healer. In theory. In practice, we see him doing [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=64 more harm]] than good. (Admittedly, it was Soveshei's fault, but when he confesses, Thomil doesn't lift a finger to save the girl until Dejoru calls him). He gets more practical work done later, mostly patching up wounds both serious and minor. [[spoiler:Emojuuel]] goes from punctured lung to reasonably mobile inside a couple weeks under his ministrations, after all.
* {{Invisibility}}: Thomil can become invisible, but rarely uses this power. He says it's difficult, especially as he's not a native Shadow-user and it's an advanced application of Shadow magic.
* InvulnerableKnuckles: Sojueilo's should be bloody stumps [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=149 by now]]. A lot of Juathuur use a little wave magic to empower their unarmed attacks and achieve the same effect.
* IWorkAlone: Arvval and, in a sense, Faevv. Must be InTheBlood. Also Sojueilo, to the point of stupidity.
* JerkAss: Beisaru.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=6 I really wonder what's written in there.]]
* JustFollowingOrders: they are on the same side, but this is the main problem Thomil has with Sojueilo: she blindly follows Meidar's orders, and he doesn't.
* [[KnightTemplarBigBrother Knight Templar Big Sister]]: Mijuu.
* LargeHam: Beisaru usually isn't, but in [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=357 this strip]] he finally snaps.
* LectureAsExposition: Thomil [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=110 here.]]
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: just check the [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/pages/cast/ cast page]] of part one!
* LoyalAnimalCompanion: Grael.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Maerril's motivation to follow Rowasu around (although she would have probably deserted anyway).
* LoveTriangle: Thom never realized he was part of one between Neilli and Sojueilo. Sojueilo was pissed off at Thom's obliviousness as much as his choice, and beat nine kinds of hell out of him during their [[InitiationCeremony ronei finals]] when he steals a second to wink at Neilli.
* MachoMasochism: Rowasu and his ritual scarring.
* TheMagicVersusTechnologyWar: Sev'vil's dream is to use technology to effectively give magic powers to everyone, even normal humans. Thanks to him, the Burnt Country is full of technology mostly based on lots of electricity. Some other Juathuur consider his inventions to be abominations... even though they're perfectly content to use the technology it's based on, which was invented by another of their own.
* MagicMisfire: [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=118 Ratheel did.]]
* MarshmallowHell: [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=467 Here, but they are brother and sister.]]
* MeaningfulName: Thlassa's name seems likely to have been derived from "thalassic," which means "of or relating to the sea."
* MeaningfulRename: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=88 Soveshei]]
* TheMedic: Faevv lampshades and subverts the tendency of females to be healers. On the other hand, Neilli is one.
* MeleeATrois: ''technically'' Aeliss vs Sojueilo+Thomil vs Rowasu, but [[spoiler: the latter is already on the brink of death.]]
* MorphWeapon: Beisaru's staff can get longer. And sharper.
* MortonsFork: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=160 what should Dejoru do?]] Follow his not-so-dead not-so-girlfriend into the unknown land of his enemies, or be loyal to his crumbling team?
* NaiveNewcomer: Faevv grew up among humans, and is new to the juathuur way of life.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Salamander King, if salamanders weren't such cute critters. And the Shrieking Sky, for sure. Also, Mordth.
* NerdGlasses: Mo!
* NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight: played with. Both Bivv and Mijuu [[spoiler: try to disarm Rowasu, the latter succeeding, without realizing that the sword is actually a ''handicap''.]]
* NeverMessWithGranny: Meidar. Oh, Meidar.
* NiceGuy: Dejoru. It is not clear if it's just [[spoiler: a tactic to get laid.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Thomil is the [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=64 worst healer ever!]] (it's Soveshei's fault). Also, Ratheel [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=329 here]].
* NoSocialSkills: Faevv has been shunned all life and seems incapable of forming a decent relationship with another human. When she arrives of the Raft, she is downright hostile to everyone. As someone said in the shoutbox, "Faevv seems a bitch. I hope it isn't a core element of her character". [[spoiler: I'm afraid it is.]]
* NotWhatItLooksLike: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=382 there is a girl on your bed.]] (An underage girl).
* OhCrap: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=137 oh]] [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=447 crap]] [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=350 indeed]].
* OlderThanTheyLook: Juar is 33 and looks about 20-25.
* OralFixation: Merlu, with straw.
* OrderVersusChaos: most of the conflict boils down to Meidar's need to control people versus Juar's longing for absolute freedom.
* OrphansPlotTrinket: the main reason for the juathuur's tattoos is to recognize children. Notice that tattoos in a given family tend to be similar (eg: Dejoru's and Mijuu's).
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Very, very different. Solluu start off looking mostly human but for gill slits on their sides and black eyes (due to a protective membrane), and in their late twenties (for most women) or early thirties (for most men) undergo a metamorphosis that replaces their lower halves with an array of tentacles. Some also have poisonous bites or stingers. They can have children with other humans or Juathuur, which may or may not be Solluu themselves.
* PathOfInspiration: the Way.
* ThePatriarch: Arvval is this to Faevv, and has ''lots'' of traditional values. [[spoiler: In the end, they... don't really get along any more.]]
* PensieveFlashback: to [[spoiler: Faerun's]] last mission.
* PetTheDog: not only Rowasu doesn't kill Juinn, but he also doesn't kill Grael!
* PeekABangs: Lif.
* PhysicalGod: all of them. Merlu, Lok and Moire (so far) have human form. The others are humanoid. [[spoiler: It seems that a long, long time ago thy were human beings.]]
* PietaPlagiarism: Beshren [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=281 here]].
* PlayAlongPrisoner: Thomil. Soveshei even dares him to escape. But it's the fastest way to reach Erab Adur... [[spoiler: it doesn't work because they get rescued, except for Dej.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: Neilli and Dej's parents. [[spoiler: But it seems someone is NotQuiteDead...]]
* ProfessorGuineaPig: Soveshei.
* PunchAWall: [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=85 Thomil doesn't like patients accidentally committing suicide.]]
* RebelliousPrincess: ehr... Juar. Except for the "princess" part.
* RedShirt: Neimal's squad. There are consequences.
* RedOniBlueOni: Dejoru is dark-haired, calm and compassionate, with the talent to become a healer. Ratheel is loud, fun-loving, has red hair and fights by making stuff explode. Partly inverted in the end as [[spoiler: Dejoru is capable of releasing an enormous amount of raw energy. Ratheel, on the other hand, is completely useless in each and every fight we see.]]
* RipVanWinkle: A minor version. A short talk with Merlu took three days in the juathuur world.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: specifically, Rowasu's RoaringRampageOfRevenge.
* SacredHospitality: Thomil tries to invoke that in the Burnt Country, with no luck.
* ScheduleSlip: Sorta. The comic went from five updates a week to three a week, but that's still very regular and relatively frequent.
* SeaMonster: Vriths.
* ShirtlessScene: enjoy it starting from [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=175 Here.]] [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=188 There is one for Thom, too!]]
* SiblingRivalry: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=549 Oh my.]]
* SlapSlapKiss: Mo invokes this trope about Sojueilo. Fists of love!
* SlouchOfVillainy: Weijuaru [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=275 here!]]
* SorryToInterrupt: Thom to Bivv and Mo.
* SpinToDeflectStuff: Sojueilo [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=146 here]].
* SplashOfColor: [[spoiler: Mijuu's blood in chapter 22.]]
* SplitScreenReaction: several times. [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=136 here is an example]].
* SpoiledBrat: Isheil. If you drink (a small dose of) poison just because your father won't come to your birthday, you deserve to die. [[spoiler: apparently Soveshei and Veithel agree.]]
* TheStarscream: Beisaru. He even has a goatee.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics: affinity to shadow, shift or shard magic is inheritable. People of other bloodlines (like Thomil) can learn a few tricks, but that's it. [[spoiler: Juinn is identified as Juar's son because of this trope.]]
* TailorMadePrison: Lok's prison. He still gets visitors, sort of.
* TalkativeLoon: Lok!
* TalkingToTheDead: Thomil to Neilli. [[spoiler: who, apparently, isn't even dead.]]
* TechnicalPacifist: Thomil.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Juoira, Renuuth and Ushaed bicker a lot, but still care for each other and function as a group. Contrast with Faevv's, that gets divided soon after the beginning of the story for general lack of cohesion. [[spoiler: In the sequel, this 'team' idea is definitely abandoned.]]
* {{Telepathy}}: standard way of communicating in long distances between juathuurs. Both participants must be willing to "connect".
* [[TellMeAboutMyFather Tell Me About My Mother]]: became a fish. Or, actually, Solluu queen Ishalluu. Faevv too shows signs of this.
* TimeSkip: between part one and two.
* TrashTalk: Rowasu loves that.
* TruthSerum: [[http://www.oneway.juathuur.com/?id=75 by application of hands.]] Another cool trick of Thom.
* TurnOutLikeHisFather: Faevv. Her human mother, Tokal, is heartbroken. Also, Mo's mother fears this (according to Ivitho).
* ThemeTwinNaming: Thoss and Thlassa.
* TrueCompanions: Dejoru tries to inspire a sense of family in his original group. He tries with the second[[spoiler: and fails again. He then loses faith in this kind of ideal.]]
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: Faevv, Dejoru and Ratheel (unusual, as Faevv is the main character). Ushaed, Renuuth and Juoira. Ivitho, Ojuaro and Lif...
* {{Ubermensch}}: Juar, Juar, Juar.
* UhOhEyes: whoever is under the effect of Soveshei's serum gets black eyes with white irises.
* UnwantedRescue: See PlayAlongPrisoner, above.
* VisionaryVillain: Weijuaru, if you consider him a villain.
* WalkOnWater: a basic trick, apparently. Having been stranded on an island her whole life, Faevv is eager to learn it.
* WeHelpTheHelpless: The ideal, for the Juathuur of the Raft. It even looks this way when Thom's squad goes out to heal a mysterious illness at the start of the series. It's soon very obviously averted.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Weijuaru. "Let's give absolute power to everyone!"
** Meidar. She grew up in a time full of war, with Juathuur tribes getting caught in the middle. She wanted nobody else to have to go through what she did, but she turned the Juathuur into a tribe of assassins and commandos in the pocket of a tyrannical king.
* WhatIsGoingOn: Mijuu is [[http://oneway.juathuur.com/?id=187 understandably confused.]]
* WordsCanBreakMyBones: the word path.
* WreckedWeapon: happens to Rowasu's sword. [[spoiler: "ts' almost too bad yer alrady dead".]]
