Moodboard: The Mask of the Ordinary/To Conjure a Man

@thiswaycomessomethingwicked is to be blamed (or praised for inspiration and writing those things. let’s use positive language here. praise them!)

Have both the blue (and more dramatic) and the red (and more warm) versions, because I couldn’t choose which is better.

Ah these are so lovely! I adore the sort of noir feel they have to them. William Downey, PI (and assassin). Also the creepy feeling really comes through.

Thank youuuuu ❤️❤️❤️🖤🖤🖤

Chapters: 2/13
Fandom: Discworld – Terry Pratchett
Rating: Explicit
Relationships: Lord Downey/Havelock Vetinari, the rest are canon
Characters: Lord Downey, Havelock Vetinari, Angua von Uberwald, Samuel Vimes
Additional Tags: Mystery, Murder, so much murder, Canon-Typical Violence, Mentions of Past Assault, in reference to the tactics of this one serial killer
Summary:

Follow up to Mask of the Ordinary.

Six months have passed with little movement since the discovery of thirty-year old bodies. Downey is eternally curious (and feeling terribly vindicated). Vetinari just wants things to be Sorted (sooner rather than later). Angua dreams of the day when she will be left alone. And Vimes desires to remind everyone whose bleeding jurisdiction this all falls under.

Obligatory Excerpt: 

A few titters from the other parents. Downey smiles at them all. He could smile for days. The more their hackles raise the more pleasure Downey takes in the situation. Absurdity pleases him. Parents shouting won’t someone think of the children when he is doing precisely that is the peak of educational hilarity.  

‘I’ll get straight to the point.’

I wish you would, the Master of the Assassins’ Guild does not say out loud.

Barnes, ‘Frankly we of the Committee For the Safe, Sanitary and Sacred Education of Our Children–’

Downey mouths the word ‘sacred’ in confusion. He makes a note to mock the committee name with Mericet and later, Vetinari.

‘–believe that the reforms to the science education at the Guild, if one may call them that, are nothing better than smut.’ Barnes colours as he says the word smut .

This is a story about Assassins, dogs and werewolves. Also about love, teaching, city, caffeine and a resourceful secretary. Not necessarily in this order, not necessarily all in major roles.

tl;dr – Downey has 2 Many Dogs (or just enough dogs??)

I feel like Vetinari spent most of his youth going “well this is unfortunate” whenever Downey was around. And he meant a WHOLE RANGE of things when he said it. 

Downey just assumed that it meant the cove didn’t like him. 

What Vetinari Says: Well this is unfortunate.
What Vetinari Means: Downey please stop hurling projectiles at me whenever you see me. I understand that you might have the impulse control of a five year old but please learn some restraint. If you don’t I might be forced to do something drastic and neither of us want that – what are you doing? Downey put the book down. Do not hurl it at — That was a priceless book, Downey. Please stop. Yes I’m aware I’m a scag.

What Vetinari Says: Well this is unfortunate. 
What Vetinari Means: Downey is currently attempting to find a horrific pun-nickname for my given name to add on to Dog-botherer and this is something I don’t want in my life. Enough people literally don’t know my name and only know me as Dog-botherer or DB as it is. There’s no need to make the situation worse. Oh dear that’s the “aha I’ve figured it out” face.

What Vetinari Says: Well this is unfortunate. 
What Vetinari Means: Downey and I are now partners in our dance and deportment class because the gods have a twisted sense of humour and we exist only for their sick amusement. It seems the last four months of summer resulted in Downey growing a foot, becoming less spotty and decidedly handsome. He seems to be prone to roguish smiles and being suave. When did he become suave? Oh dear. 

What Vetinari Says: Well this is unfortunate.
What Vetinari Means: No Ludo you weren’t right about anything. Downey is deeply obnoxious and about as smart as a brick. If I were to ever end up with someone they will have grace, tact, reserve, a well cultivated mind, discretion, political acumen, a love of reading, manners, as well as a certain je ne sais qouis. They will not be loutish, debauched, arrogant, stroppy, daft, obtuse, prone to missing the point by a mile, no by ten miles, combative, frustrating, possessing certain features which it is unfair that they possess, no I’m not listing them Ludo, they are for me to know and you never to find out – Ludo stop laughing. Oh no, don’t shout for Downey that means he’ll come over and be loud and call me a scag.  

What Vetinari Says: Well this is unfortunate.
What Vetinari Means: Well bugger all of this for a lark. I owe Ludo ten quid and he’s dead so I guess I’ll uh leave it on his grave or something. Downey stop snickering. You’re far too gleeful.
