More Acrophobia Leftovers!

Recommended Posts

@Julia H. I liked the "courage overcomes" but you did fine in the round

Gendry's other house words (I used "Forging steadily")

Forever surly (no explanation needed)

Total victory (very generic, not terribly clever) 

Working for higher kingdom (kind of what Gabe did, but more religious context than political, 70%/30%)

Bells chime, offering safety (referring to two Gendry moments, one in Stony Sept at the Peach, and the other at the Inn at the Crossroads)

Brilliant leftovers there from all three of you, thanks for sharing. The one I submitted came incredibly quickly and I didn't dwell on it much longer.

Similar to others, I had Forging Strength.

Also Terra Vulcan, which I liked the idea of but has the obvious flaw of incorporating real world mythology rather than Westerosi mythology.

I like Burning Comes Our Steel best. I actually liked the AAR reference, but it doesn't seem like Gendry is going to be AAR...if he were he might have to sacrifice Arya and I don't like that idea.

Oh, no, I didn't mean to imply that Gendry is actually AAR, only that he has those associations.

Maybe should have used one of these for Brown Ben...

Tertiary dragons.

Targaryen derived.

Dawning wise.

Delayed winning.

Heirs to tactical success.

Honor's toast. Try scheming.

Glory awaits my fate.

Glory and Might, flaming.

Gone are my fears.

Glorious are my flaws.

They are all good ideas, Lady B, but I think I like these ones the most.

Also enjoyed the last one :lol:

 

I had:

High The Towering Son

True Deceit

Honest To The Stage

 

and a few jokey ones:

Hells To The Sellswords

Hightails The Turncloak Son

Here The Trust Stops

@Lady Blizzardborn, I love 

Honor's toast. Try scheming. :D

I also really like:

Heirs to tactical success.

@Dolorous Gabe

They are all good ones. The last one cracked me up. Very appropriate. 

Mine were:

Dancing Warriors (reference to the dance of the dragons with Dany)

Hunting Treasure Taken Seriously

Hard Times, Tough Seed (reference to their noble bastard / Targaryen origin)

History Taught to Survive

Hardened Through Tough Service

Hardened. Tenacious. True. Stalwart. (highly ironic, this one)

Hunting Treasure Through Sacking

Hopeful Through the Sewage (I liked this one, but I didn't think Ben would actually choose something like this.)

Games are More Fun 

Gold and Monetary Funds

Gold and Mercenary Fight

Games and Mercenary Fights

Hundred Tips to Survive (This was another candidate I actually considered.)

My first round leftovers for Gendry:

Toujours vertueux

Always virtuous. It's French, I know, but House words sound better in French :P 

Faithful Servants

Without fail hammers kill 

I really had no leftovers for Plumm, just variations for the t word, like terrific dicks, tremendous dicks, travelling dicks.

I was sort of surprised no one else had used dick....  :lol:

DG, I just loved Here the Trust Stops!

Thanks, maybe I should have tried that one. Although I'm pretty happy with the one I submitted and it did well enough.

Our delightful host Castellan and I did decide that Hightails would be a good name for Brown Ben's seat :lol:

True Deceit

Thanks, DG.  Those are the two of yours I like best. True Deceit is so appropriate, not to mention being an oxymoron.

Thank you, Julia. I like these three of yours. I can't help laughing at the sewage one. The other two are very good!  Either of them would have made my vote list.

You're right. It does sound better in French. That reminds me, my sister came up with a family motto for some of her characters, and it was also better in French: Dignité sans vertu.

I am impressed with how creative everyone is and the number of competing good entries you send. 

I had my own little idea for Brown Ben - Dun Wandering - as in the twee cottage names. Also he is dun of course. I think he really really would love the security of a castle and lordship in Westeros.

I should have tried harder for Hot Pie but I was tempted to submit:

Promised One

(playing on the pie that was promised)

I very likely would have voted for both of those! Good stuff, Jez Bell. :cheers:

And now I can finally post my Arya entries that I thought were not my best, and feel dumb for having not submitted them.

Inspired, we sew prayerfully

List compiled

List complete

Dohaeris often

Dohaeris on

Choice needles used gracefully
