Under These Words, With This Conviction

In Plenilune, words as well as military prowess mean something - titles like "Hammer" and "War-wolf" are earned and respected.  I now know the names of my characters and all their titles, so I decided to probe a little deeper this morning.  The following is a list (probably not exhaustive) of the mottos for people and places in the world of Plenilune.  Enjoy!

  2. I had such fun "discovering" these! Each one well fits its person, though occasionally in twisted ways. I think Rupert's and Aikin Ironside's are, perhaps, my favourites. Did you have any favourites?

  3. I adore this - you come up with such brilliant ideas!!
    You're fortunate I can revive myself; I must consider you
    a killer because you penslay me far too frequently for me
    to call you anything else except, perhaps, a brilliant writer.

  4. You should see the walls of the spare room here, which is where my computer is set up. They are covered in pink heart sticky-notes (the pink hearts have nothing to do with what is written on them) and index card-sized pieces of paper with names and places and happenstances and quotes and mottos and songs and anything that I need to remember written on them. All I need now are red strings to pin across from paper to paper and I could be well on my way to becoming the next psychotic megalomaniac. Which is kind of redundant.

  5. All of them are great, Jenny; I do agree that I love Rupert's the best, along with Rosemary and Margret :).

  6. Thank you, Joy! I almost feel bad liking Rupert's so much, but it fits him to well it would be another kind of crime not to like it! :P
