* [[MaternallyChallenged Quain'tana]] to Ariel: "You make me proud."
* [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=6989 Waes'soloth and Naal'suul's]] conversation, especially Waes' last line. Has an extra punch to it since [[spoiler:it's the last time they speak to each other before Naal's death]].
* [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?order=chapters&id=1675 Chrys'tel and Shinae taking steps to reconcile.]]
** Later, [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=9537 we find out just why they didn't become the next Vy'Chriel and Yaeminira]].
* Nega'fanae forgiving Balsii for a second time to avert more bloodshed.
* Belph'aegor promptly [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=9387 disproves the Judicator]] by helping free his friends who have been targeted for ThePurge.
* In Chapter 43, Faen - [[ShrinkingViolet shy]], meek little Faen - gives a nervous Ariel a magificent confidence boost [[spoiler:in the form of a BigDamnKiss]].
** The next chapter one-ups this. Faen, without saying a word, [[spoiler: [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=9637 effectively]] [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=9640 declares]] "To Hel with Quain'tana and her objections!" and more or less single-handedly [[RelationshipUpgrade upgrades]] [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=9643 her relationship with Ariel to a full-blown]] TheyDo.]]
* Chirinide, despite [[LethalChef having absolutely]] ''[[LethalChef no]]'' [[LethalChef idea how to cook]], attempts to roast a bird for Shan'naal because he rarely gets to eat meat, and she wanted "to cook something good for [him]."
** When Chiri's complete and utter failure of a roasted bird comes out of the oven, Kau offers to help her salvage it.
* [[spoiler:Zhor]] [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=10212 lands himself]] the spot of possibly the best father in the series, if not overall parent.
* [[spoiler:As they leave Felde,]] Ariel apologizes to Faen, ostensibly for leaving her coat behind but probably for gambling their lives by going to Felde as well. Faen, who has every right to be pissed at her leader for taking such such a needless risk, quickly assures her that everything is all right, and that she doesn't hold it against her.
** Also on that page, Nau finally reciprocates Kiel's feelings for him, after giving her the cold shoulder for years. [[http://forums.drowtales.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18473 According to the author,]] this is mainly due to Kiel's refusal to abandon her friends, no matter how tainted or flawed they are. As Nau is [[spoiler:all too aware that his days are numbered due to his faulty seed]], this means a great deal to him.
* Shala is [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?sid=10310 proudly smiling up at Sarnel]] (bottom left of the last panel) when he pulls his BigDamnHeroes. Becomes bittersweet since [[spoiler:this is one of the last things we see Shala doing before she dies]].
