- The fic fleshes out Hana and Balto's (the wolfman) relationship throughout their moments, making the love story even more Heartwarming. Especially when you've watched the movie, then the entire fic can become this as well.
- Balto surviving his fall into the river. It's a rather somber moment, but rises to Heartwarming when you realize that the family won't be torn apart.
- Balto spending time with Ame and/or Yuki - something he never got a chance to do in canon.
- Hana and Balto's marriage.
- It's still a Tearjerker, but in canon, Ame seemingly never got to say goodbye to his sister. Here he does, as well to the whole family.
