Perfectly Pratchettarian prose. Love the asides and footnotes. Dwarfs are not big. On much.
Dimac99 chapter 1 . 5/5/2016
Oh, Carrot. Traditional Dwarf indeed! As a feminist, I must say I loved this :-)
qui11 chapter 1 . 11/4/2015
This is some of the best Pratchettesque writing I've ever seen. Well done. Even the footnotes are correct!

Oh my. I not quite sure how, but I ever even considered Carrot being a girl before. Oh my again.

You tackled such a modern, complicated idea of a gender spectrum and made it fit perfectly in Discword. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Everyone was spectacularly in character, and your Pratchett voice was impeccable. Loved it.

Your Pratchett voice is impeccable. Carrot was so endearingly and improbably... well, himself.

I don't really like short stories but I almost laughed my head off with this one.

It's so carrot like :-) so like pratchett himself. Please do a sequel
Sherlock Emrys chapter 1 . 4/11/2013
Literally laughing out loud at the surrealness of that whole... conversion. That's the definition of awkward.
Excellently well written and perfectly in character too! Reads like a scene from a novel, despite the bizarreness of the concept. Should have been crack and wasnt. You win the internet XD

I've not read many Discworld fics that capture the essence of the books like this does. Pratchett's spirit runs right through this one - plus it was really true to the characters.

If I was going to be picky I would say you probably didn't need all the tagging and reactions et cetera - the speech alone would have carried the story a lot of the time - but even then none of it was badly written

I like it.
Selina chapter 1 . 3/10/2013
That was very well written. The style, the complexity of text and above all the in-character-ness were very enjoyable. The line that caught my eye was "made a wrong, a right, a left, or a right bloody mess".

Still laughing :D but that is the sort of thing Carrot would do. Maybe write his declaration from Angua's point of view, that would be an interesting conversation...
pennylehane chapter 1 . 1/23/2013
Oh god, I'm in stitches. Can't see his happening, thank god, but it it did, this conversation would definitely follow. Hehe. Well done, mate.

What an enjoyable story! It was nice to see you even included footnotes a la Pratchett. You certainly captured the essence of his writing well; the characters also seemed very true to form. The whole thing is quite clever. Thank you.
