That's an interesting idea.

For Lind, I might suggest the house of Ice.

For Urd, a suited weapon could be a gunblade (it mixes a blade with gunpowder that could match her habit of creating things through alchemy).

For some reason i can't picture Urd as Squall (hello Final Fantasy VIII fans =)



House of Ice for Lind it is :)



Any idea for the mottos?

Neither I do to be honest. I just thought of something that involved her hobbies. If we're talking about a normal sword, then a katana would do the job.

Mottos?

House of Wind: May the wind always be at your back.

Stole some from Warcraft... (i was NOT playing..i swear =)

House of Ice : Justice Shall Be Met

(this House will have a tradition of forming Valkyries, warriors for the Aesir. So i thought it was a fitting motto)

House of Roses: Feel the Strength of The Earth

(might change it later)

note: this is a minor House

can't decide between 3 for this one...

House of Thunder: Rise to Meet your Call

or

Seek me Out

or

Unleash my Wrath

House of Wind i think will stay with Vanangdr : May the winds always be at your back

Other Houses:

House of Iron: (ruling house in Niflheim before House of Fire):

- We never Give Up

We never Forget

We never Die

House of ??? (Welper's House)

House of ??? (founded by Hagal after being promoted to demon number 2 in Hell)

House of ??? (Mara's house)

House of Whispers ( Halval house) <--- the demon who could " see sound" in the manga

House of the Earth (Thrymr house. A fallen House) <--- demon with incredible physical strength in the manga

House of Machiners (Hrungnir house) <--- demon who could control machines in the manga

Ideas?

Think you misunderstood something there =)

The motto of House of Iron is those 3 lines: we never Give up, We never Forget, We never Die

But i dig the name you came up for welsper, Hagal and Mara's Houses =)

Need to find Mottos for them now (apart from Hagal, i like that one)

Re-reading Peorth character description, i think maybe i should change her to House of Earth , and find another House to be the Fallen one.

Ideas ideas?

Oh, I know. I just thought it would be funny, given Welsper's story and Mara's insistence. Of course, it's better to have some better mottos for them.

Peorth could be better as the house of Nature (as in plants, vegetation etc).

House of Hexes: Masters of Fortune (Hexes can be seen as 'bad luck' or 'misfortune')

House of Nightmares: Beware your Dreams Come True (alt. 'The Shadows cast by Fire' since Mara serves Hild)

And I agree with Vanagandr on the House of Mirages saying.

Hmmm....

House of Fire: Passion in the Flame

House of Whispers: Feel the Vibrations of Life

House of Earth: Strength through Battle, Wisdom through Experience (Thrym)

House of Machiners: Building the Future

Think any of these would be good?

After some debate with a very good writer, who unfortunately will be kinda unavailable for the upcoming weeks, here’s what I have in mind.

So.

Starting from the beginning. Again.

Keiichi and Belldandy decide to get married ‘earthen style’ since they’re celestial marriage worths nothing to a human. Ofc everybody is invited (meaning Belldandy family and Keiichi family/friends). Hild may or may not invite herself. Peorth and Lind get ‘free vacations’ for a while, as a reward for their good work during Niflheim rebellion.

After a while, Heaven sends a decree that the heir has come of age and must start attending political events in Heaven, and calls up Bell. She is kinda confused at first, since Urd has been the heir presumptive for a while now, but obeys anyway. The rules for succession would be as follow:

  • The heir must be over 25 (celestial) years
  • The heir must be married

Belldandy is on her late 24’s, almost about to turn 25, so she is about to take Urd’s place, much to Heaven’s joy, as there’s a lot more support for her taking her Father’s throne (when the time comes) than Urd.

Urd, for her part, is pretty satisfied at taking that weight off her shoulders (she never really wanted to rule a kingdom where half the population hated her anyway. Heck, she never wanted to rule at all. Period).

She decides to follow Bell thou, as she starts seeing ‘signs’ that her sister is being ‘played’ in the political warfare that happens in Heaven. The older powers that be think Keiichi is unfit to be the consort of the royal heir, and try to pair her a celestial on a more balanced wedding (and having Keiichi being demoted to some sort of ‘mistress’), which angers Belldandy to no end. She also becomes depressed because she has to spend more and more time away from Earth, meaning she spends more and more time away from Keiichi.

Urd ofc, being the meddlesome individual that she is, completely butchers everyone’s attempt from getting too familiar with Belldandy, while trying to come up with a plan of her own to save Belldandy’s a$$. Peorth wants to tag along to help, but since she has no family ties whatsoever to them (and thus no access to the private parties and meetings), poses as Urd love interest. They fake everything for the crowd to see, all smiles and kisses and whatnot, but can’t bear each other inside closed quarters. Lind tags along Urd all the time, having been assigned as her private ‘walking bodyguard’ ever since Urd returned from Niflheim.

Urd’s demon powers are no longer going to play nice and be sleeping inside her. Now that she stirred that pot, there’s no going back. She feels the need to change configuration every once in a while to vent some demoniac energy out (hence why she gets Lind to escort her everytime, in case she loses control).

The changes however, happen often at night, when everybody is sleeping. Skuld is the one to stumbles on her during those time, and gets to bond with her. She eventually asks Mara for help to learn to deal with the demon better, since she has no idea whatsoever how to handle her at first.

Keiichi dreams to start his own business, and having being presented by Ansuz with an ungodly amount of money as their wedding gift, decides to found a company to design (insert cool stuff here) parts.

The amount of work to do proves to be too much for him to handle alone (choosing a constructor, selecting the proper area to build the factory/office, interviewing possible employees, passing inspections, etc), and he simply cannot do it with Belldandy being whisked away to heaven every so often.

Skuld is still somewhat bitter at him, not fully accepting him as a real, permanent member of the family, and only does half-hearted attempts to help (humiliate) him. She eventually gets scolded by both K1 and Bell, who declare that she can either stay on Earth and help, or she can go back to Heaven. She abides and stays, going through the “hard way” (= getting a proper human education) to prove Keiichi that she wants to help, and is capable of doing it, despite being a goddess.

Urd finally decides to put her “press-in-case-of-emergency-red-button” plan in motion, as Belldandy is about to turn 25, and things are looking darker than ever for the couple. She asks Peorth in marriage, so she can get the position of heir apparent back, at least temporary. Peorth obviously declines at first, but ends up accepting after Urd discovers some old, rusted law in a book somewhere that says if the marriage is not consumed during the first celestial year, it can be called off by one of the intervenient parts.

One celestial year can be around 100 years of Earth time, which gives Keiichi pleeenty of time to hit the bucket. So that way Bell and Keiichi would still get to have their shot at living a ‘normal’ human life, Urd would be able to hold Heaven’s suitors off Belldandy’s back for a while, and still shake off responsibilities after 1 year.

And that would be a rather decent plan, if only they wouldn’t start falling for each other like idiots (think something along the lines of ‘What Happens in Vegas’ with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher (sp?), after making each other lives miserable inside 4 walls.

In the meanwhile, while Urd managed to “save” Belldandy for a while, she also managed to cause an uproar down there in Niflheim. News of her wedding to Peorth reached their ears, and there’s another rebellion brewing (this time a much larger one), since the demons cannot stand their Heir having married a god (and so wish to depose the lineage).

Hild is controlling things for the meanwhile, but warns Urd of the danger of the situation she put herself into, and asks her to make a decision. She can either step up and take the throne when Hild decides it’s a good time to feed the worms, or she can be responsible for the thousands of deaths that will take place if the throne is left vacant (and the deaths happening already with the Heir situation).

After that I’m thinking of making a possible love triangle/quad, but that’s for later.

Thoughts so far?

I really like the plan so far.It certainly matches the end of the manga (including the situation with Urd's demonic nature) and I think that having her paired with Peorth has quite the potential for some fun. Especially given how hard it's going for them to try and act like a married couple. And here's an interesting thought: After getting drunk, they wake up worrying whether they consummated or not their relationship (technically, they both sleep with very little on, so it's hard to tell if anything else took place). That could be a fun subplot where they'll have to consider whether they're actually stuck together or not :roflmao:

Something like:

"Oh great, how do we know we're not stuck together now?" The brunette asked as she resumed drinking her morning milkshake.

"You could do a virginity test"

Peorth abruptly stopped slurping her drink .

"What, Don't you tell me you weren't a virgin before!"

The first class goddess blushed furiously.

"I'm a goddess, not a saint"

Urd grinned wildly and moved to sit closer on her seat.

"Tell me more..."

Yes, that could be excellent :roflmao:

And with those two... virginity tests are... how should I say it... pointless (something that either of them accuse the other).

Aside from jokes, it could be an opportunity for them to consider things and even lead to a triangle or square later on, if you want. Otherwise, you can just end it much sooner as part of a comedy plot. :thumbsup:
