|Reviews for For Ruby|
| Ija 1/22/13 . chapter 12
This is genuinely one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. I'm not a sappy kind of person, but I think your narrative it unbelievably sweet. Everyone is beautifully written, even characters like Sybil and Wilikins whom we don't see much of are perfectly in character. Well done for writing this and filling in the gaps between the little windows we see through into Detritus' life. I always thought that he was a woefully underused character, and I reckon this fic just about proves it.

Good chapter, always glad to hear from you, I'm wondering what you are going to do next? I can't wait to find out!

I can't wait to see what happens, the part were Ruby confronts Mr. Shine was very well done, conflicting emotions etc. I will be interested to see Ruby and Brick's relationship. And whatever happens with Nana. Merry Christmas!

So Nana is like Old Grandad then?

Aaw! Excellent spin on Discworld- thanks for writing about a much loved character. We never see Detritus the troll, just Detritus the watchman. Lovely. :)

Blame Christmas? You need some better excuses. But it was a good chapter, I can't wait to see how Ruby reacts, this was a good tie in to the books. I can't wait for the next chapter.

Apparently Detritus has no defense against Vetinari either. *sigh* I'm gonna love this, aren't I? *holds up Vetinari fan-flag*
Anyway, this was adorable. I think I "Daaawwed!" about a bazillion times. I really love Ruby and Detritus, and honestly, I love the story. I'm really liking Bauxite, and the young Pseudopolis trolls a whole bunch.

cute! I can't wait to get a new chapter. Thank-you for updating regularly, it means a lot, lol, I can understand how other trolls would be attracted to Ruby, and that she would only have eyes for Detritus.

I loved the last bit with Vimes talking about Vetinari. There should be a BRIEF scene about the two of them arguing over the expense (well, Vimes arguing, the Patrician sitting there mildly amused, of course).
Wonderful chapter. You really got the essence of Detritus I think, and Ruby is just amazing. I love her. Keep writing!

Its kind of funny seeing his embarrassment at his medical condition, I know I've felt this at times. The bit about Vetinari not paying for a lost limb was funny, the books really do portray him as that kind of person.

Awesome story. Created a convincing setting, in-depth characters and delivered it all humourously.
Would review again.

I'm sitting here sniggering over my keyboard :-) and him fainting...I can't wait for the soapy shower scene, let alone the cerium oxide buff and polish.
Detritus being, "culturally sensitive", :roflmao:
The whole story is full of little tweaks and turns and rich unexpectednesses. Thoroughly enjoyable, a real pleasure to read.
Thank you for writing and posting.

This is so cute, you have an excellent writing style, and you make the characters very believable. I cant wait to find out what happens next, are they ever going to have a pebble?
