YMMV: Crown of Stars
- Crowning Moment of Awesome Ekkehard standing up to Wichman. Bulkezu's line, "A dog can bark, but it's still noise." Most of what Bulkezu does. Wolfhere taking Liath from Hugh WAS this, in so many ways. Just as she's finally given up, and resigned herself to him, Wolfhere arrives and offers her a chance. May also double as Big Damn Heroes.
- Draco in Leather Pants Hanna thinks so about Hugh. Bulkezu is a straight example however.
- Evil Is Sexy: Hugh and Bulkezu are male examples, the Aoi however are simple and arguably evil.
- Ho Yay: Ivar and Baldwin don't count cause it's canon, Sorgatani, Hanna and Liath on the other hand...
- Magnificent Bastard: Bulkezu and Hugh.
- Moral Event Horizon: Well plenty of actual rape, Anne's murder of Bernard, and Kasi-a-Lari when she abandoned Sanglant and the King. And when Tallia, betrayed Alain.
- Wangst: Liath, at first.
