Trucy was kidnapped in 5-5 by Aura, right? Shouldn't she be here? I couldn't figure out a way to edit her in... ^^" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.149.66.164 (talk) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Is being held hostage and being kidnapped the same thing? To me, kidnapping insinuates that the individual is taken away and held against their will (usually) for ransom in an unknown location, while hostage-taking is done in order to (usually) force an official body (such as a government) to fulfil something they want (also the individual normally seems to be held in the same place they were taken and is one of a number of other hostages). That is not to say that someone couldn't be kidnapped then taken hostage (such as Maya in Farewell, My Turnabout), but Trucy is held against her will with a number of other people in the same place she was captured. That does not sound like a kidnapping to me. That sounds like a hostage situation. - Strabo412 (talk) 17:15, November 2, 2014 (UTC)
