I like your chapters.

Glad to see more on this one.
"Meanwhile, in far Karn-Li, something scrabbled at the desert sand..."
I did wonder!

I always get excited when I see any new chapter for your stories but "slipping between worlds" in particular. I'm a born South African and Irish through my moms family and its great to learn so much about real history in a fictional world. South Africa doesn't really teach much world history except the world wars so my knowledge of Irish history is mostly from the Internet.
Anyway I'm really enjoying this piece and I hope it keeps your interest and you keep updating.

Wouldn't it be hippocampi, not wyverns? Wyverns are two-legged dragons.

So, will the sensitivity training include the gorgon? Goblins? Gnolls? Other things that start with G?

The George Macdonald Fraser fan in me loves the portrayal of the squaddies, and I'm not as much of a Pratchett fan, but from what I've read it fits with the Post WWII British Army perfectly. Great stuff!

Thanks, sweetie, for the update. Working where I do, I have come across a Ms Partleigh more than once.

Interesting... and sad.

So glad you found you mojo for this one :-) and I agree; it is good, very good indeed...and so is the latest chapter.
It's nice to finally get a richness to Alice's character, well, both of them, iimmc, and lovely to hear her describe Denise.
Hex and Ponder too seem 'right'; benevolently inclined intelligence.
Your Welsh platoon sounds awfully like my brother's Scottish one, and Dand MacNeill's come to think on it. That sarky, smart humour, where intonation carries the meaning far more than the words at times. Cock of the Walk strut too :)
Greenham Common left squaddies sickened with disgust that women could behave like that; the soldiers had to wear waterproofs so that they could wash off the filth that was thrown at them. Rabid harridans was the kindest description, even from those who otherwise agreed with their politics.
Thank you for the tale, and for posting. As ever, lots to stick in the mind to mull over.

Glad you've got your mojo back.
I like this one. I like the characters; your OCs are good and you write Pratchett's charaters convincingly as well.
This chapter feels very first draft-y, though - obviously, if it is just a first draft, then that's fine. You mention having covered a lot less ground than you planned but still writing a lot: classic symptoms. Not that you're even close to 'cut it in half' territory, but it does feel a bit loose in places. And a few typos.
Keep going with it; I'm hooked.

...So how this chapter, this long awaited return to your most acclaimed work go? Well for me, it starts slowly, memories of past events loosening up and returning to the surface as your humour and the whole idea of vampire relations starts to sink in. There's a little bit of real world knowledge to ease things along... and then WHUMP the campaign for equal heights section hits and leaves you with a silly grin for the rest of the chapter!
...Pleasant thing to wake up to! The whole Alice section has raised some interesting questions for what comes next, on top of the Alien problem.
One question though - such a big fuss is made about a Discworld inhabitant not being able to visit Roundworld during his/her doppelganger's lifetime. I'm assuming Hex was just sneaking around the rule with the "there-but-not-there-suit"? It could (in my opinion anyway) use a little clarification in the text.
...And I agree with "GuesssWho", the conciousness raising session is particularly worth touching more on... although I'm sure you've got other scenes just as amusing/interesting lined up.
| GuesssWho 11/25/12 . chapter 48
Continue the 'consciousness-raising session,' please? I want to see all of it.

I'm half Irish, so some nutty part of my brain starts singing 'Dear Old Skibbereen' when I read this stuff :D

As usual an excellent story and hope more chapters come soon.
