Indeed, Susan feeling like that - there is no better way of portraying Vetinari. Footnote 4 says it all. In fact, I almost find it a bit hard to believe - but I guess it's all due to Susan's desperate desire to be NORMAL. Goes to show that when you get what you want it might not always be a blessing.

My friend, sometimes I wonder if you're a genius, or completely insane.
Then I read one of your chapters, and the thought occurs to me; "Oh yes. Both. Gotcha."

That meeting was everything I could imagine. Reading the interactions between Susan and Vetinari produces a feeling of morbid curiosity. Like watching a horrible car wreck. Neither of them are meant to ever be manipulated by a mere mortal (or a near mortal). But they can't both be dominant in the conversation, so this is the result... Nice work. I look forward to more soon.

Your writing continues to be very high quality and in a very Pratchett style. I really like the friendship between Myria and Cheery and I am excited to see what happens with Lord Vetinari! Thank you for making the time around my exams a little bit more bearable!

I might quite possibly die of bad punnery before this book is over. ... Is that what happened to Slant? You beat him to death with banana skins? Poor fellow.

*snicker* Good grief... Susan as a teacher... Pretty sure I had her in a class, back in the day...

Dude... you are weaving a web even you may have trouble crawling out of. I'm beginning to worry about Miss LaJean.

Once again a precious piece of weird sarcastic humour. Indeed, your observations of "Yessir" are most profound. Is "superioriorior officer" an intended error (1)?
As for that clock, well, it might be one of Bloody Stupid's works of genius, and thus be there simple as a collector's item, but I have a feeling Susan is very right with her suspicion. As for her singing, I'm pretty sure, as you say, that in her dealings with children (2), she is not the Mary Poppins type (3).
A very nice cameo of Mr Slant, too. I've always wondered why some dead people become zombies and some don't. It can't even be a question of nastiness, as Reg is certainly not similar to Slant in any way.
(1) If such a thing is even possible.
(2) She would NEVER call them kids, I'm sure.
(3) More similar to Emma Thompson's nanny persona, I expect.

I remember another fun fanfic in which Susan threatened Slant into defending her Grandfather in court... Good times. Your Susan/Slant confrontation was amusing, especially the "There's someone who is overdue." Oh Susan!
True, Susan and a certain singing nanny wouldn't get along at all.
And yes. I grimaced.
Looking forward to the next chapter! :-)

The crazy clock WAS probably designed just to annoy visitors. Clockson would have probably committed plenty of murder in response. And then he would have "fixed" the clock. I did like Susan's reaction to the undead. It made me grin and is probably completely true. Good job and good luck.

Oh very clever Mr Tolkien... umm Stone... LOL

You've got to watch out for those reporter types... LOL

His jewels would've ended in his throat... You know, with each chapter, I find I like Cherry more. LOL

I can see why this article would put everyone in an uproar. I eagerly await more soon. Good luck. And I also blame Jason's parents.

Oh boy. I'm looking forward to that meeting with Vetinari, you have no idea! :-)
