Blue Memorable Moments - Red Star Rising/Dragonseye

What are your memorable moments from Red Star Rising/Dragonseye?

The parts that stand out for me are:

The trial at Telgar Weyr - I'm possibly not the only man who crosses his legs when he reads the verdict.

Chalken's impeachment. It's always nice to see the villian get what's coming to him!

Jay!

I think that loving to hate Anne's baddies is another favorite thing about her books.

This isn't my favorite Pern book, tho I do like the answers we're given to questions that we've plagued (oops! reading Moreta, so the word comes easily to mind!) Anne with over the years.

Iantine and Debera's blossoming love thru the book is something I love. Along with his talents as an artist. I'd love to see his drawings, tho I can imagine them somewhat.

The discriptions of Iantine doing the portraits of the Weyr folk, when he is drawing Debera and Morath that is wonderful. Also when he is doing the portrait of P'tero for M'leng, that is so touching when he wants the minature for his pocket to keep him close.

Iantine and Debera together... baby Morath roaring to Debera's defense, trying to fit the man's head into her jaws... Debera's whole story...

Morath is really the only hatchling we see much of. She is so cute, and I love that Iantine is attached to her as well as to her rider. My very favorite moment:

Morath knows my name?
Why shouldn't I? I hear it often enough.

I've been rereading DE/RSR:

"One can forgive almost anything except one's own stupidity."
- Vergerin

"Is there no privacy? Is there no way to keep secrets?"
"Not in a well-run Weyr there isn't."
- Iantine and Tisha


Also, my stupid brain now wants me to write a fanfic from Chalkin's POV, on his island, when Thread starts falling...
