* GenreTurningPoint: Even if their status as a goth metal band is arguable, there's no denying ''Mandylion'' was when the genre started to shift. Prior to that album, goth metal was normally associated with bands such as Literature/ParadiseLost, MyDyingBride and TypeONegative. Afterwards, female fronted goth metal bands started to come out of the woodwork.

!! Horror/fantasy novel by Isobelle Carmody:
* JerkassWoobie - Danny turns out to be this, anger aside he's actually pretty harmless if he likes you. Seems that his current cynical and angry attitude is a reaction against the police brutality he experienced when he was younger: the event that set him off on his current path.
* GeniusBonus: Nathaniel's pet Chihuahua-cross the Tod is described as being easily mistaken for a strange looking cat or a fox by others. A 'Tod' is an old fashioned English name for a fox.

* GeniusBonus: Nathaniel's pet Chihuahua-cross Chihuahua-cross, the Tod Tod, is described as being easily mistaken for a strange looking strange-looking cat or a fox by others. A 'Tod' is an old fashioned English name for a fox.



* ParanoiaFuel - The whole damn town has this effect on people. Nathaniel at one point wonders if he's ''"beginning to see something dark and terrible in everything"'', and when in the end even his ''mother'' is sucked into the darkness ruling Cheshunt...
** The whole possibility that evil, actual unadulererated evil exists to call upon the darkness within us is pretty creepy. Nathaniel's sudden burst of joy at all the things he imagines could be true if their magic is true turns to fear when he realsies that what is true for good magic is also true for bad.
* FridgeBrilliance: Lallie appears to the Chain as a relatively young girl. However, it's revealed that during [[spoiler: the creation of the first chain fifty years ago, she appeared as "Lallindra" a girl in the same age bracket as the original Chain. This leads to an awkward LoveTriangle situation where Ana Galway assumes Zebediah is in love with Lallie and not her]]. This is shown to be [[TearJerker heartbreakingly inaccurate]] [[spoiler: but by then it's too late and the Chain has broken. It's entirely possible Lallie chose to appear as a child this time around to prevent such complications from happening again.]]
