Over on Earful of Cider this past Random Thursday, Sarah W. introduced me to a big, fun time suck: using Join the Realm to create House Sigils. There are quite a few neat, funny examples in that post specifrically and you shouldn’t miss out on all the good random that goes down there every Thursday.
And since I stayed out too late to sign up for WeWriWa last night, I thought I’d honor the return of Game of Thrones (which I desperately missed) by making a house sigil for the main characters of my books/wips. Without further ado: a wasted hour. Also, a few of my phrases were so lengthy, they didn’t fit, so I’ve included them below each crest.
Out of my Skin: a tale about a one-woman werewolf police force .
Latin phrase: ulpae poenae par esto or “Let the punishment fit the crime.”
Countdown: a tale in which a young woman is doing everything she can to save her floating city from being “decommissioned,” or dropped from the sky in a corrupt kingdom.
audaces fortuna iuvat or fortes fortuna iuvat or “Fortune favours the brave.”
Human: a tale about a detective who meets an android named Adelyn X. And can’t get her out of his head, which leads to trouble, of course. That trouble leads to uncovering a conspiracy far outreaching anything the detective had ever seen.
Latin phrase: quis custodiet ipsos custodes? or “Who will watch the watchers themselves?”
The First Nation: a tale about a girl who dreams of escaping the Nation, a city-state in a mountain.
Latin phrase: corruptisima re publica plurimae leges or, “In the most corrupt state are the most laws.”
Young Gods: a tale about a young woman who inherits her father’s godly powers and has to figure out how he was murdered. Phenomenal powers, teenage control.
amare et sapere vix deo conceditur
or “Even a god finds it hard to love and be wise at the same time.”
