“Tiffany thought of the little spot in the woods where Granny Weatherwax lay. Remembered.  And knew that You had been right. Granny Weatherwax was indeed here. And there. She was, in fact, and always would be, everywhere.

vonlipvig:

My Discworld collection has grown again! I can finally continue with Rincewind’s books (not pictured is Interesting Times, which I have on my desk, ready to be read!). It’s a bit of a mess, I know. I just have too many books and not enough space!

Now, can I find a Tiffany book for once? Pretty please?

The watchmen marched out into the afternoon sunshine, and did so badly. They were not used to marching. Their normal method of progress was the stroll, which is not a recognized military maneuver, or the frantic withdrawal, which is. In addition, the convection currents of prudent cowardice were operating in the ranks. There was a definite sideways component to each man’s progress as he sought to be in the middle. The watchmen had shields, but they were light wickerwork things that intended to turn blows and deflect stones; they wouldn’t stand up to anything with an edge. The advance, therefore, was by means of a slowly elongating huddle.

Lord Vetinari laid his pen aside. “You have to consider the psychology of the individual, Drumknott. Everyone may be considered as a sort of lock, to which there is a key. I have great hopes for Mr. Lipwig in the coming skirmish. Even now, he still has the instincts of a criminal.”
“How can you tell, my lord?”
“Oh, there are all sorts of little clues, Drumknott. But I think a most persuasive one is that he has just walked off with your pencil.”

“He’d noticed that sex bore some resemblance to cookery: It fascinated people, they sometimes bought books full of complicated recipes and interesting pictures, and sometimes when they were really hungry they created vast banquets in their imagination—but at the end of the day they’d settle quite happily for egg and chips, if it was well done and maybe had a slice of tomato.”

I hate cats.“
Death’s face became a little stiffer, if that were possible. The blue glow in his eye sockets flickered red for an instant.
“I SEE,” he said. The tone suggested that death was too good for cat haters.
