Added DiffLines:

** Also from chapter 83, we have the Earth Gems reminiscing about their lost recent partners on the Moon.

Added DiffLines:

* In Chapter 83, we finally get a glimpse of Cinnabar's point of view. The other Lustrous are more than happy to put the Gem in the group, encouraging them to cheer on the Gems breaking up ice floes and waving adorably at each other. Sensei is even relieved to see Cinnabar this happy for the first time in centuries.

Added DiffLines:

* Chapter 82: Phos finally realizes that, despite everything the gem has done to their former mentor, Adamant still loves them.

Added DiffLines:

* In a moment that crosses over with TearJerker, in chapter 81 Padparadscha's first thought upon waking up is for Phosphophyllite, and when Sensei's prayer fails they immediately set off for the Earth despite being so weak they need help from nuGoshe to even stand. When they see Rutile about to smash Phos, they ''rip out a piece of their own chest'' to distract Rutile long enough for Cicada to rescue Phos.

Added DiffLines:

* Chapter 80: Despite all the Lunarians have done over the course of the series, seeing them get excited for their final hours on the Moon is a little heartwarming, at least for those who we've gotten to know.

* The reason for the Gems' white powder covering is quite adorable: [[spoiler:Red Diamond, the very first Gem Sensei took care of, asks him why they look so different if they're similar. When Sensei points out that RD's natural color made his skin come out the way it did, the young Gem asks him to have him look the same. And thus, they make white powder to cover him up.]]
* After Kongo-sensei comes as clean as he's able to [[spoiler: the Gems who remained on Earth]], it marks a much more open and equal relationship between him and the Gems. Much of the formality between them falls away, and Kongo is even given an AffectionateNickname, Kon-chan, or Adamie, for translations that call him Adamant.

Added DiffLines:

* Cairngorm, despite everything, was the only one of the Gems who genuinely came to visit Phos after the Night Raid.


* Ventricosus being moved by Phos selflessness. She stops trying to use Phos as a bargaining chip and decides to just run away with her brother, even giving the gem a hug as she makes up her mind.

Added DiffLines:

* The inside flap for Volume 9 has one in hindsight; where Cinnabar would usually be depicted separate from everyone else, the gem is shown here standing by Bort. At least they're not alone anymore.

'''Bort''': (''touches Dia's face, tender'') So can I.

* In Chapter 39, "Self Blame", Cairngorm, who had previously been a complete jerk to Phos --albeit with good reason-- manages to get them out of their mental breakdown. Cairngorm tells Phos that they can count on them during the times of pain.
* Phos' resolution in chapter 51. No matter what, just like at the beginning of the story, they still love Sensei. And it's made pretty clear that despite their recent differences, Kongou loves Phos too.

** Variegatus telling Phos that she plans to save everyone that is on the Moon.
