Way back in HeartMate I set up that a newly risen person (or Family) from commoner to noble had to do a few things.
Here's the passage: A stack of papyrus at least fifteen centimeters thick sat there. She pulled them out in bundles, and found them to be forms: "Biography for the NobleCouncil," "Verification of Life Papyrus," "Application for Noble Name, Coat-of-Arms, Motto, Heraldry." Finally there was a red-bound book, Responsibilities of a Head of a GrandHouse, Laws, Rules, and Regulations Pertaining to the Nobility (Examination Upon Completion).
Now, I have an idea for the main element of the heraldry/coat-of-arms. Four four-leaf-clovers attached at the stem, cross-like (and if I'd ever mastered my new graphics program I'd show you, but I still haven't). Uncle Pink Clover, the head of the household won on that one. I'm thinking that Mitchella is going to hold the line at a simple coat of arms, like the clover-cross on a silver shield.
I need a motto: Always a Lucky Clover around when you need one. Or, Always In Clover, or something. Since I didn't really care too much for the ones above, I'm opening it up.
Prize: The ARC of Noble Heart (one story) after it's done and POLISHED. This will not be a Beta read -- unless you want a beta read, but it's either/or. Right now this is the longest of the stories in the collection, and I anticipate it to remain that way.
Additional Contest: Anyone who DOES love playing with graphics, can give me a coat of arms and/or heraldry with the Clover cross and will also get the above story.
