If you're still doing the AU prompts, what would Weatherwax tyrants reaction be to an attempted assassination?

the-tao-of-fandom:

Eeeey guess who’s supposed to be finishing their NaNo wordcount for the day but is writing prompts instead!

________

Thermopoli Gaiter[1] skulked, in the best tradition of capital A Assassins through the centuries, through the dark hallways of the Patrician’s Palace[2] and seethed, smugly.

The cat brought kitties! Which sadly did not include bringing the kitty my parents saved from the neighbours’ coal shed last week (affectionately called ‘Kooltje’ by my folks - Coaly).

She brought the one on the pink blanket first - I didn’t even notice until I heard the mewls. I’m calling it Butler atm because of its colouration and demeanour, but that’s probably subject to change.

Then the cat pulled a lassie and led me to the neighbours’ place, where I heard more mewling. Found the stripey in a hay stack - apparently fell through the bottom of the hay loft. No name yet - it’s stolen my mother’s heart and she wants the name to be perfect.

Then she led the last one to us - a hyperactive bunch of fluff we’ve affectionately called Stoffel (after Christoffel/Christopher Colombus) because it just can’t stop exploring all the things. 

kitties

Congratulations, this is soul destroyingly cute

You can tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod/iPhone/iTunes/media player and write down the first 10 songs. Then pass this onto 10 people.

ancientart:

Bronze statuette of a veiled and masked dancer. Greek, 3rd–2nd century B.C.

The complex motion of this dancer is conveyed exclusively through the interaction of the body with several layers of dress.

Over an undergarment that falls in deep folds and trails heavily, the figure wears a lightweight mantle, drawn tautly over her head and body by the pressure applied to it by her right arm, left hand, and right leg. Its substance is conveyed by the alternation of the tubular folds pushing through from below and the freely curling softness of the fringe.The woman’s face is covered by the sheerest of veils, discernible at its edge below her hairline and at the cutouts for the eyes. Her extended right foot shows a laced slipper. This dancer has been convincingly identified as one of the professional entertainers, a combination of mime and dancer, for which the cosmopolitan city of Alexandria was famous in antiquity. (MET)

Second Lady!Sam prompt: Maybe a tiny AU where Sybil is also a lady?

It felt good to be home.

Not just back in Ankh-Morpork, but…actually home.

She had a home to come back to now, not just a room with a bed and the sour smell of old beer in there.

More importantly, she had a wife[1] and a daughter[2][3][4] to come back to.

Sybil was already in bed by the time she got to Ramkin Manor, but quickly woke up when Sam got in bed with her and scooched up against her. [5]

Sybil wrapped her arms around Sam. “How was it?”

“Long.”

“Sam!”

“I met two girls there, towards the end,” Vimes said, “like us.”[6]

Sybil was silent, but gave a squeeze that said “Go on.”

“They’d obviously had a hard time of it, and I think they’ll be fine now, but I wonder…if there wasn’t anything we could be doing here. More than we already are.”

Sybil thought about it for a minute. “Jolly good idea love,” she finally said and maybe it was her imagination but Sam relaxed slightly in her arms at that. “Let’s talk about it more at breakfast. Which you will be at Samantha Vimes, the Watch did without you for four months, they can last two more hours without you and-Sam?”

Vimes, who must have been utterly exhausted, had fallen asleep. Sybil smiled, and closed her eyes as well.



[1] Ankh-Morpork society wasn’t quite ready to actually let them get legally married, but as far as Samantha Vimes was concerned, she and Sybil had been living together for longer than many other couple’s marriages lasted, and she loved her, so she was godsdamned if she wouldn’t call Sybil her wife.

[2] It was the small scandal of the Season[3] a year and a half ago, when Lady Sybil Ramkin, who was in…a…er, hum….yknow an understanding! Yes, an Understanding. Anyway, Lady Sybil, who was in an Understanding with the Commander of the Watch, announced she was pregnant. And no, she would not be marrying the father. Or telling people who the father was thank you very much.[4]

[3] The Big Scandal involving a giraffe, two duels, and a wheel of stinky cheese.

[4] Little Sam had pitch black hair, which didn’t help in further raising eyebrows.

[5] Sybil had eight inches on Sam, so she was usually the big spoon by default.

[6] A bit of a non sequitir perhaps, Sybil thought, but they obviously had been weighing on Sam’s mind.
