The downside of catching the eye of Wintersmith is that he’ll make a giant iceberg shaped like you to get your attention and it will definitely kill people.  Well, y’know.  One of the downsides.  This art is so freakin’ pretty though.

The two-man band struck up. The men, in two lines of three facing each other, counted the beat and then leaped… Tiffany turned to Granny as twelve hobnailed boots crashed to the ground, throwing up sparks.
“Tell me how to take away pain,” she said, above the noise of the dance.
“It’s hard,” said Granny, not taking her eyes off the dancers. Crash went the boots again.
“You can move it out of the body?”
“Sometimes. Or hide it. Or make a cage for it and carry it away. And all of it’s dangerous, and it will kill you if you don’t respect it, young woman. It is all price and no profit. You are asking me to tell you how to put your hand in the lion’s mouth.”
“I must know, to help the Baron. It’s bad. There is a lot I have to do.”
“This you choose to do?” said Granny, still watching.
“This is your Baron who doesn’t like witches?” said Granny, her gaze going from face to face in the crowd.
“But who does like witches until they need one, Mistress Weatherwax?” said Tiffany sweetly.
“This is a reckoning, Mistress Weatherwax,” Tiffany added. After all, once you’ve kissed the Wintersmith, you’re in the mood to dare. And Granny Weatherwax smiled, as if she’d done all that was expected of her.

– a new season, another reckoning |
Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith



Im currently readiing Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett and couldnt get this scene out of my head.



i had a ton of homework to do this weekend so naturally i spent it binge reading the first three Tiffany Aching books

headology101: What do you need to make a man? …


What do you need to make a man?

Iron enough to make a nail,
Lime enough to paint a wall,
Water enough to drown a dog,
Sulfur enough to stop the fleas,
Poison enough to kill a cow,
Potash enough to wash a shirt,
Gold enough to buy a bean,
Silver enough to coat a pin,
Lead enough to ballast a bird,
Phosphor enough to light the town,

Strength enough to build a home,
Time enough to hold a child,
Love enough to break a heart.

It’s a scene from Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett, in which Nanny Ogg’s house gets filled with chickens because You the cat asks the magic cornucopia to feed her chicken.

“The floor was covered with chickens. So were the stairs. So was every room down below. In the kitchen, chickens had overflowed into the sink” (Pratchett 272).



The trouble is, you can shut your eyes but you can’t shut your mind
