* NightmareFuel: "The Bonny Swans". Specifically, the part about the harp-making. Also, in the music video for the song, the rather terrifying skull mask the harp's "false sister Anne" is wearing for the court masquerade.

Added DiffLines:

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: In every live version she's done of "The Bonny Swans" since ''The Mask and the Mirror'' came out, but especially the one from her ''Live in Paris and Toronto'' concert, the moment when the harp reveals to the entire court what her "false sister Anne" did to her is punctuated by an absolutely badass electric guitar riff which underscores just how screwed her sister is by the reveal.

* MagnumOpus: "The Book of Secrets" is by far her deepest and most intricate release to date, and that is saying something.

Added DiffLines:

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Many of her songs which are not tragic ballads (and even some that are) act as this due to their being expressions of love and devotion, but particularly notable are "Penelope's Song" and "Never Ending Road."
