I'm sketching out things a ways down the line and I need to come up with some names for the noble houses. It is what informs the themes of the names of the children born. What House a Herd falls under is usually decided upon when the marriage contract is drawn up. "Last names" or noble houses are things that only the nobles have.
The Apple family is legally a noble house, and the Earth Pony nobility have about an even split between like the Apple family and more classical nobles.
Pegasi have a few houses that are (still) heavily militaristic rather than classically noble (pompous asses).
And the unicorns have the largest number of noble houses, having set the standard for 'classic' nobility, with a few better houses like Twilight's.
For example: Twilight and her family are part of the House of Light
Rarity is trying to 'create' the House of Belle
So! Ideas? Suggestions? Fan spawned? Personal ones with OCs in them? Etc. Etc.

Would anyone be interested in a Consequences-verse group? This is the third time I've had people asking/talking about alternate stories based on it and I'm fully supportive, but it made me think.
The group would be a place for the collection of stories set in the Consequences verse as well as similar stories playing on the concept of Gary Stu/Mary Sues in a more literal sense.
Obviously I'd include some more concrete info about the Consequences verse for people to play around with, not just stuff from Emeris' limited perspective.
Just something my crazy (and hyped up on one too many scoops of pre-workout stuff) brain thought to ask before I head off to work.

Right, so, I've been writing up the next chapter for Consequences of Unoriginality and it's been pointed out to me that it's gotten a bit... hefty.
... like ~15,000 words hefty.
And I just got to the date proper.
So, um, yeah... would y'all like me to get this posted up with the actual date in the next chapter or should I finish up with the date in this chapter?
Also, huge thanks to PandoraBoxable for the cover-art for the story! Apparently something even cooler is in the works, mad props ;-;

Just super happy with this scene so far and couldn't help but share:
”No!” I couldn't let that stand! No! My head jerked around, there would be no confusion! I couldn't even let myself think of that happening! “I would-”
My words caught in my throat as my breath hitched in pain and I flinched away instinctively, my horn lighting up.
There was dead silence as I stared at an equally wide-eyed Sure Scissors, my brain trying to catch up-
There was a wet *thwap* and my eyes flicked over to the sound-
… was that my ear...?
That was a piece of my ear.
My eyes returned to a horrified looking Sure Scissors.
She'd just cut off part of my ear.
We both looked over at the bloodied piece of ear on the hardwood floor.
That was practically half of my ear, cut off at an angle.
Our eyes returned to a lock and my ears unconsciously flexed, a sharp, stabbing pain followed by a dull ache making themselves known in my mind at my right ear. The soft *pat* of a droplet hitting the floor was soon followed by a slow pitter-patter as the blood began to drip freely from my ear... stub of an ear...
Sure Scissors pupils had shrunk to tiny pinrpicks, “I-I-I-... I'm sorry-” she stammered softly past the scissors in her mouth as she began to tremble like a leaf.
She'd cut off half of my ear!
She hadn't meant to... obviously so.
Her whole job was to cut hair and not do exactly that!
Her name is Sure Scissors, her cutie mark is a pair of scissors, this is probably the first time this has happened!
She was freaking apologizing! After going on a damn tirade about how saying sorry wasn't enough!
She was apologizing.
The light around my horn died out, and I could practically feel myself deflate, “You're forgiven."
