There were definitely times when I had to stop and remind myself that this was NOT the two-or-three centuries later, steampunk-y revisitation of Alera. At least, I don't *think* it is....

I like that Folly began to ask Grimm direct questions when on the ship.  Its like Grimm, while on the ship, counts as a crystal.  :)

I think a lot of the difference between Ferus' interaction and Folly's interaction with the ship is attributable to experience interacting with ships.

And possibly experience in general.  Between the two events Cass noted she had a particular fight and achieved a new milestone in her training/development.  This achievement may or may not have been directly involved in the communication matter, but it does illustrate that her capabilities are a dynamic thing.  Perhaps she couldnt notice before, or couldnt BE noticed before, because she (folly) hadnt leveled up enough yet.

There was another difference. Grimm was not on the ship when Folly's master was talking to it. That might account for the difference between how it reacted. Grimm could be a key part of the soul of the ship

yeah I do not believe it is the crystal in of itself. they changed out the core crystal yet she is the same I am guessing in personality from how she talks to Folly. i cannot get a solid guess but i am thinking it might be the ship itself when has the personality and gains awareness/ life of some type when it gains a crystal to spark it and reacts w/ the Capt & crew.

if it was just the crystal the personality/ awareness should be totally different than after it was changed.

The core crystal wasn't changed.
