It was raining after my last bio lab class of the semester ended so I decided to take a walk to a local bookstore and I picked up Vicious by V.E Scwab (as self-care ofc) and guys....I'm obsessed. I've only read five chapters but like oh my god I'm already in love with the atmosphere and the characters and just?? It's been a hot minute since I've been this intrigued and excited about a book
Feyrie Naming Conventions:
Fey name themselves after they grow old enough to talk. Before they do, they’re referred to in general terms (“the kid”, “this baby”, “our child”) or by a temporary name, depending on their court’s traditions.
Fey don’t typically take middle names.
Courted fey usually adopt their court as a surname (“Meparik of the Frostbitten Court”, “Fea of the Windriders”, “Eustais of the Lycarious Court”), while solitary fey might adopt residence or profession as their surname (“Morekai of Hybirah”, “Ainzel the Summer Herald”, “Charlan the Shopkeep”).
Yes, some fey will name themselves after nouns, adjectives, etc (“Snow”, “Russet”). It’s more common in the wildercourts, but city fey will do so just as readily if it strikes their fancy.
A fey might change their name if they feel that they have grown out of their old one, or if they have changed their gender identity. It’s common (and sometimes expected) for fey to change their name after assuming a leadership position.
You're a published writer?? Honestly, not surprising. What have you written???

Series: Part 1 of Always and Forever
《 “Hey _̴̧͍̝̑̄̌_̸̺̮̼͖̇̍_̷͕̣͖̦̭̒͊͐͠_̸͑̈͊͋��̭͜_̴̡̬̳̈́̏̏, do you think we’ll always be together?” Katsuki looked up to his friend from where he sat on the edge of the water fountain watching the fish swim.
“Obviously! You’re so silly sometimes Katsuki. I will be with you for this life, and the next, and the next, and the next, and the next, and the next!” the blurry faced boy across from him, playing swords with sticks, giggled. “Here, take my necklace as a promise.” The boy yanked said necklace of himself, carefully putting it around Katsuki’s neck. “Always and forever!” he held his pinky out to the blonde.
“Always and forever.” he whispered, one hand reaching up to grab onto the necklace, the other locking their pinkies. 》
Just my rant
I have spent the last 2 weeks reading old favorite books from my teenage/young adult days, and I have to say that I think I am a bigger fan of fanfiction. In "regular" novels I almost feel like they rush through it. (Their publisher probably made them cut a few thousand words or so) but with FF, I feel like I really get to know the characters. It's not just the character saying, "oh, so and so did this, and then we did that, and then jo said, "yay!" and that's all the actual "dialogue" we (the reader) gets. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love so many of the "published" books I've read, but I think I just discovered a newfound love for fanfiction, and fanfiction writers.
That's all I have, thanks for listening :)

Ulluan Naming Conventions:
Ulluic surnames are typically passed down matrilineally, except for some very rare and specific edgecases where a dwindling noble family only has sons left to continue the line.
(If you’re wlw or mlm, you basically get to pick which of your names goes to your kids. Again, unless you’re nobility. The noble house with the least members will then pass on their name.)
Ullua is vast and less culturally authoritarian/uniform than Gadhi, so there are many different traditions for first names. Some of the more dominant ones are; letting the mother pick the first name, naming firstborns after a grandmother, asking Alluari or the Romne for suggestions at a local shrine, and gifting the child a water-based name for good fortune.

Life is made of up moments, good, bad, and otherwise. Take one away and it changes everything, who we are, why we are. Maybe it was destiny that brought Alison and Ronald together, maybe it was simply all the moments before that pushed them together. He was a shy rock star, an underground celebrity, lusted after by thousands of fans and known by none. She was a writer, bound by deadlines and other people's ideas, never able to break free and tell her own story. They shouldn't have worked, but they did. They shouldn't have fallen in love, but they did. They weren't the perfect couple but they were real. They were forever. They were moments that came together as a whole.
