Added DiffLines:

* When reading the Lord Ruler's journal in Book 1, it's full of moralistic and philosophical ramblings. Vin laments that an evil god of darkness has no right to be this whiny.

Added DiffLines:

* When at court in Book 3, Vin looks around at the other women ogling Elend, with his warrior's body and neat white uniform, and gives them a DeathGlare, as she loved him before he became MrFanservice, so there.

Added DiffLines:

* Vin goes to Sazed for advice on relationships. He, in his typical manner, gives it, she thanks him and leaves. Then, not five minutes later, Elend comes to do the exact same thing, worried that he and Vin are too different to make it work. Sazed dryly says that they’re more alike than they know. Meanwhile, the person Sazed was in the middle of talking to is reacting appropriately.


* Elend needs to know how [[spoiler: Jastes]] is controlling his koloss. [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Koloss being koloss, Elend has witnessed them suddenly attack each other, offering the most trivial reasons why after the fight is over and one of them is dead,]] then taking the loser's sword and the strange pouches they have tied to the sheathes. So, Elend decides that when among koloss, do as the koloss do, and attacks one. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome He manages to kill an (admittedly small) koloss with nothing but a glass dagger.]] The other koloss in the group were just watching, and after the fight, stare at Elend. He realizes they're waiting for him to justify his attack, so Elend says the first thing that comes to mind: "He ate my horse." The koloss nod in response, and proceed to finish escorting Elend out of the camp.

** The fact that he had a servant go and find the very book he was reading the night they first met (and that Elend remembers which book that was) is also this, crossing over into CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.

* Vin and Elend getting married. While a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming as well, it's also this. Vin is bloodied and wounded after [[spoiler: her fight with Zane]], including a stab wound through her left breast. Sazed is stitching up her wounds, including her breast, when Vin asks Sazed which of the over two hundred marriage ceremonies he knows is the shortest. Elend and Sazed are both rather taken aback, even after Vin and Elend have both done the requisite declarations of love required for the very short marriage.

* "I am, unfortunately, the Hero of Ages."

Added DiffLines:

* What is the first line of Harmony, the new [[spoiler:PhysicalGod]] of the land?
--> [[HeroicSelfDeprecation "I am, unfortunately, the Hero of Ages."]]


* In the first book, Kelsier's crew has a meeting in the beginning for starting to formulate a plan to take down the Lord Ruler. Kelsier gets them to list the problems they're going to have to deal with and write them down on the blackboard. After everyone lists a lot of problems, Yeden adds something pessimistic along the lines of "The fact that this plan is doomed to fail and we're all going to die," and Kelsier writes on his list of problems they have to deal with, "Yeden's bad attitude."

He then explains that, if they think about it long enough, they may be able to solve these problems. Except Yeden's bad attitude. This one they can do nothing against.

* Vin's first attempts at Ironpulling and Steelpushing are this, in a darkly comedic way. First, Kelsier warns her that he'll explain the other aspects of Iron and Steel later, but Vin gets suspicious and experimentally "tugs" on one of the little blue lines she sees, only to have a loose nail come flying out of the dark at her. Later, Kell tries explain how she can use Steel to cushion a fall by having her jump off the top of Luthadel's walls. Vin Pushes too hard and winds up flying up past the top of the wall, startling two guards on patrol. One can only imagine their shocked, confused faces as Vin shoots past them, then starts dropping like a rock again.
