I like your story a lot more
| Sivaroobini Lupin-Black chapter 7 . 5/2/2012
I... don't even know what to say. This was so sad, and thought-provoking, and beautiful. I made a choked little noise at some point after you revealed the bodies, I admit. Oh, Vetinari. I'm not a fan of the 'he's really just a sweetheart behind that cold exterior and will be very nice to Drumknott/Vimes/romantic interest C' idea, but you made Vetinari believable and human and still himself. And oh, Drumknott. Death's paperwork made me laugh, it was sheer genius. XD And oh, the headlines. It pains me that it was a lie, still, but I can see William's reasoning. And Vimes' reaction, and Sybil's and Carrot's... and oh, Moist. The scene with the throne made me laugh. XD
And that final scene with Vetinari and Drumknott, when they move on together? Beautiful. Jut beautiful, and perfect, and heartbreaking.
Thank you for writing this.

Honestly, I have no words that could possibly encapsulate the sheer brilliance that is this story. I could write volumes about it- the truth of the characters, the depth of the storyline, just the complete and utter wonder of it all coming together to mean something so incredibly profound that it leaves me gibbering like this- but I don't think I could possibly say it better than you have in the past 17,000 words. Just... thank you. Seriously. From the bottom of my heart. :)

I must say this is probably the closest I've ever come fanfic-wise to feeling like I'm actually reading a Discworld book. Thank you for the amazing story.

Same as Commanderjc - I normally hate the Vetinari/Drumknott stuff, but this is just so well-written...and despite the sheer scale of my love for Vetinari, I actually thought the way you captured the other characters was fantastic, especially Moist von Lipwig and William de Worde. I can't help but think that if Moist ever does become Patrician, that's exactly how he would be.
| Commanderjc chapter 7 . 10/13/2010
I don't even like Vetinari/Drumknott fics, but I'm going to have to say this is one of my favorite Discworld fanfics of all time. Excellent work.

Same situation as Damsel-in-distress only I must add it made me dream about Vetinari last night which is awesome.
Well, I really liked it.
"PERHAPS I WILL INVITE THEM BACK FOR HOGSWATCH DINNER"
| Creatura chapter 1 . 8/25/2010
If you go from this "The feared tyrant of Ankh-Morpork, ruler of the greatest city on the Disc, had died trying to save the life of a humble clerk. Over the roaring noise in his ears that sounded suspiciously like the Disc spinning the wrong way round, Vimes dimly heard Carrot begin to cry again."
"For one thing, Vetinari was skinnier"
You KILL me! *cry* *laugh* I do hope you might eventually write more Vetinari and Drumknott...
| Mr Stereo1 chapter 7 . 8/16/2010
Truly excellent fic.
| ariex04 chapter 7 . 8/6/2010
This story is just amazing! I'm really glad Drumknott decided to go with Vetinari. Leaving where they were going unspecified was a really nice touch. The tenth footnote made me crack up laughing. I think Moist would do a good job as Patrician. You did a wonderful job with this story.
| ariex04 chapter 6 . 8/6/2010
The funeral was so sad! :( It was beautifully written, though. The line "He made the mistake of looking back, and saw Death astride his great charger, scythe gleaming wickedly in the eternal light, and discovered that, after all, he could run even faster" made me laugh. I'm glad Drumknott found Vetinari. I loved Vetinari's list of things that made it a good day :). So de Worde put the lie in the paper? As long as the people who matter know the truth, I guess... Well, I'm off to read the last chapter!
| ariex04 chapter 5 . 8/6/2010
I forgot to mention it in my last review, but I found the eight footnote extremely funny. Moist as the Patrician surprised me at first, but I like the idea. His paranoia about the chair was funny :). I still don't understand Vetinari's gamble. Anyway, you did a really good job with this chapter. I'm excited to find out what happens next.
| ariex04 chapter 4 . 8/6/2010
Well, whatever's becoming clear to Drumknott is not becoming clear to me. Well, I suppose I'll find out shortly. So Vetinari did make some sort of deal... "No, it wasn't even that he was controlling them, as such; it was just that seemed to have found it personally convenient to coincidentally do what he wanted whilst doing what they thought was what they wanted." That sounds exactly what Vetinari does to rule Ankh-Morpork. Great chapter!
| ariex04 chapter 3 . 8/6/2010
Once again, great chapter. I can't wait to see what happens with de Worde and his article decision. I hope Drumknott is successful in his quest to get things back to the way things were. The footnotes were funny :). Nice job with this chapter!
| ariex04 chapter 2 . 8/6/2010
I loved this chapter. Lipwig's "OhgodohgodI'minsomuchtroubleyouweren'tsupposedtodieyoubastard!" is so absolutely perfect. Vimes's little rant at the end was also wonderful. Drumknott and the filing was funny. Great job with this!
