Back with one of my favourite scenes from the Discworld series. Ink and digital colours.

Nightmare fuel, tearjerker, and hilarious all in one scene, Vimes and the dark, in the dark.

When Nobby had gone Vimes reached behind the desk and picked up a faded copy of Twurp’s Peerage or, as he personally thought of it, the guide to the criminal classes. You wouldn’t find slum-dwellers in these pages, but you would find their landlords.

‘Guild member?’ ‘Not any more, sir.’ ‘Oh…

‘Guild member?’

‘Not any more, sir.’

‘Oh? How did you leave the guild?’

Vimes leaned back. ‘The alchemists are always blowing things up. I never heard of them getting sacked for it.’

‘That’s because no one’s ever blown up the Guild Council, sir.’

‘What, all of it?’

‘Most of it, sir. All the easily detachable bits, at least.’

‘Put it in the Widows and Orphans Fund, will y…

‘Put it in the Widows and Orphans Fund, will you, Fred?’

‘Right. Oh, well done, sir. Any more windfalls like this and we’ll soon be able to afford some more widows.’

There’s some mythical creature called ‘overtime’, only no one’s even seen its footprints.

‘Ye gods! Do you want me to get a doctor…

‘Ye gods! Do you want me to get a doctor?’

‘Are you mad? We want him to live!’

“He hated games. They made the world look too simple. Chess, in particular, had always annoyed him. It was the dumb way the pawns went off and slaughtered their fellow pawns while the king lounged about doing nothing. If only the pawns would’ve united … the whole board could’ve been a republic in about a dozen moves.”
