that as a woman, it would be "more butch" (her phrase for "boy, that's
recognisable and strong") if it were on a lozenge. I was all for it and
designed mine so it would best use the shape... years later, the tune had
changed and I found myself arguing with her that it be shown that way -
she'd advised the scribe who'd made my Pelican scroll to do it on a heater
"since any shape is correct" and was vexed that I was dismayed to see the
awkward, nasty looking thing. We've since stopped talking about it. But
lozenges have nearly disappeared, so far as I know, in Atlantia due to the
strong disinclination of the Heralds group to suggest/support them.
