I love your stories.
| Deadzepplin chapter 16 . 2/14/2012
Vimes is awesome and your portrayal of him/them is excellent
| Creatura chapter 16 . 8/26/2010
Bloody hell, 7 kids...
This whole fic was very strange.
| LadyAdarah chapter 16 . 2/11/2009
I wasn't expecting an update! :-O
so you can imagine how happy i was when i acidentally stumbled across one this afternoon. :)
| Rachel Indeed chapter 16 . 2/7/2009
Hurrah. All's well that ends well. Tacos and manipulative diplomacy - sounds like a nice life.
| Gogol chapter 16 . 2/7/2009
SEVEN CHILDREN? FOR SHIT? Butler hahahahaha. Oh yes. I knew you'd get it in somehow. I had faith in you. Really.
Also, new Official Rule Of Fanon For The Discworld. Vimes dies of a heart attack at 68. We now have a whole three stories collaborating on this. The fact that one of them is an AU MATTERS NOT. :D
Layla Leike continues to amaze, bedazzle, and terrify! YAY! And Vimes trying to set his king up, poor man. It worked. But only illegitimately.
My question is, if the ambassador came, got sperminated by Carrot, then went home and had baby, why is there no evidence that the baby is illegitimate? I mean wasn't it born like a month early?
But no worries. I love it. A fabulous finish.

I'm glad you finished it! I'm not really sure what to say apart from that I liked it. My favourite scene was probably the hanging, although I also like it when Gaspode came to visit Vetinari. I always thought those two would get along well.
| Gogol chapter 15 . 1/27/2009
As you are already aware, my love for this story knows no bounds. Well, okay, maybe a few; I draw the line at feathers. But, in general, no bounds. And the love, it is here and alive! ALIVE!
Ahem. Anyway, this chapter is, I think we can all agree, the quintessence of... well... let's face it... quite gratuitous fluff. And it, too, has my devotion forever. Especially the bits with Vetinari in them, poor man. You really do not have the right to talk about abusing him, you know. At all. Let's see, broken rib, starvation, pneumonia, nutrition deficit...
I guess, at least, there is no heavy metal poisoning this time around. :D
And I like his Love Interest (tm). Despite not actually having proof that she IS a love interest, she still warrants the capitals, mostly because she's that special and fun. Also, handy with a needle!
Um, what else, I should have done a numbered list of amazing and marvellous again but I see you have been restocking up on those reviews so I have few qualms about my disorganization in this informal approach to "Revolutions: A Study Of Alternate Multiverses, And Why They Are Sexy".
So I will skip to the HOMG YOU FINISHED IT AND IT WAS GREAT AND, INCIDENTALLY, MY LOVE FOR IT KNOWS FEW BOUNDS. Yay!
P.S. Gimme epilogue kthxbai. Poor Carrot is single, can't be good for a growing lad with that size Protective.
P.P.S Vimes fails at smooth-talking doctors haha. Do not TELL them you are responsible for the malnutrition, that is the road to hell you're paving there!
| Roruna chapter 15 . 1/27/2009
That last bit with Carrot was so sad. T-T
But I loved when Sybil was called Vimes' mistress, that was pure fic gold.
| Rachel Indeed chapter 14 . 1/15/2009
Woah! What an amazing story!
I love it to bits. You've done such a great job of capturing the feel of these characters, and you've convinced me that Vimes absolutely needs that relentless self-monitoring drive he's burned into himself, because he has the natural tendency to be a short-sighted thug when he's left utterly without restraint. The kingship was Vimes' Beast, on full display, and though it's a tribute to him that it wasn't any worse than it was, and he gave it up in the end, it was still pretty awful.
I LOVE YOUR VETINARI. Because, with the ironic detachment, and the Gaspode-network-prison-news, and the literal flirting with death, and the...everything! I love that people aren't sure about his sanity or morality, but his genius is indisputable. But most of all, I loved the tiny little serious moments you threw in there, like when he tells Vimes that his wastefulness is offensive (he resents *that* more than the sixteen year prison sentence), or that perfect little exchange at the end: "I'm sorry for it." - "Good." - "Want to run the city?" - "I thought you'd never ask." -
There's always been something inhuman and unromantically, cynically selfless about Vetinari when it comes to the city, and there's something vaguely *right* about the idea that in prison he would expend his limited energies on planning municipal government rather than escape or revenge. It says something about his odd personality - snarkiness wrapped around an utterly impersonal intelligence - that Vimes could recommend putting him in charge of the city without fear of messy personal reprisals. But looking to the horizon, I see a broad range of carefully targeted sarcasm in Vimes' future - he will be getting the eyebrow, oh yes. I'm just waiting for the first "detain" exchange :)
Thanks so much for writing. Discworld is so delightful, but so difficult to write. Those with the talent, like you, will always be appreciated!
| CaptainElli chapter 13 . 1/15/2009
I was going to wait till I read all of this before reviewing...but it's so amazing, I couldn't wait :D
The charcters are perfect and little twists like having Lord Downey as Captain Downey are great. Reading the next chapter now, so you might want to expect another review when I'm done :P
| eruthiel chapter 14 . 1/15/2009
'So long and thanks for all the fish'? How I wish I had time to read this all the way through, slowly, twice! The chapters I /have/ read I enjoyed hugely...
| Skykhanhunter chapter 14 . 1/14/2009
Really well done that. The trousers of time snapped back together again.
| Roruna chapter 14 . 1/13/2009
Great chapter and I second all of Gogol's points that she made in her review.
(except for the bit about Vimes because to me, that man can do no wrong. Or... he can do wrong but he's still awesome doing it.)
And er... needs more Sybil bits. They're too great.
| Gogol chapter 14 . 1/13/2009
OH HEY DON'T WORRY.
I AM SO HAPPY TO DO THE WORK FOR THEM, BECAUSE, YOU SEE, HOW MUCH MORE FUN IS IT TO READ YOUR FANFICTION THAN TO WRITE MINE?
OH YEAH. FIFTY BILLION TIMES MORE FUN.
*turns of caps-lock key*
Okay! Now I believe it would be an appropriate time to unleash the numbered list of awesome.
1. Adora Belle Dearheart. The hanglady.
Adora Belle Dearheart. The HANGLADY. (I lied about the caps-lock key.) The plot bunnies you have wrought, you don't even know. At last, her dream job, it is achieved, and she can wreak revenge on her boyfriend /again and again and again/. Or Vetinari if he decided to screw the whole matchmaking business and get on with the flirting, that works too.
1a. Yeah, by the way, Vetinari and gallows flirting beats even Vetinari and gallows humor so, so hollow.
2. Basically the entire page in which Carrot goes Royal Scion (tm) and pulls a fucking sword on the entire city hahaha. I'm sorry but even though it is choreographed by all his deviously scheming elders it will never, ever, ever stop being solid win. History, I am so on your side when it comes to this, however bad Destiny may be.
2a. Uh hey population of Ankh-Morpork getting your Bruthas and your regular kings mixed up much? However, there is nothing more perfect than the beautiful, beautiful inversion you pulled off, with Carrot the angel and Vetinari the condemned and Moist the, I dunno, *watches metaphor crumble into bits*, the crazy enabler. :D
2b. '“Yes, you did,” Carrot said, eyebrows raised, leaning backwards slightly. “But, uh, you’re alive now.” He leaned in. “Right?”' WORD.
2c. '“Bloody hells,” Downey muttered. “Now we have to hang him again.”' EVEN MORE WORD. So much word, it overfloweth the cup of logos.
3. Actually skipping back a little, there were some really lovely bits as well as utterly hilarious ones. Like this one:
'Carrot looked from the king, crownless, to the crowd, and out over the city.'
I won't make incoherent comments on this one, I promise, because it's a little too marvelous for that.
3a. And yet it is all the better for being dismantled five seconds later by what I am now realizing would be the best two-man con ever, as Vetinari and Moist Prepare For Teh Raising.
4. And the negotiations between Vimes, Carrot, and the Politely Incredulous Watch, them too, how I loved them. I mean they should have been too pat, they should have been too obviously contrived to get Ankh-Morpork back into slightly-less-AU position, but they /weren't/. You and your mad skillz, Twist. God forbid that you should ever turn your powers to evil. Or good for that matter. Fanfiction, that is where you must keep them!
5. Vimes' apologyish to Vetinari was pretty good, but he is not yet redeemed in my eyes. He must pay. Preferably in twenty years or whatever spent on mind-numbing paperwork, I think that would be about right, while Vetinari gets to connive freely, what with his not having a gunshot wound or an annoying legal man like Carrot to keep him in check so much as in the Real Live Universe. (At least that's how I am choosing to view his likely future, okay.)
In summary I am going to go and sex this chapter up, kthxbai. And I am not going to stop bugging you about the next one either. I realize that the super important climactic amazing bit is done with, but even anticlimaxes are pretty much assured fun and joy when you write them, so... *wink wink nudge nudge*
THERE. HOW AM I DOING IN THE STANDING IN FOR FIFTY BILLION ECSTATIC REVIEWS YOU SHOULD BE RECEIVING BY NOW? I AWAIT YOUR APPROVAL, IT IS ALL I CAN DO FOR YOU IN THE FACE OF THIS EPIC...ness.
