Good evening! I'm an English English graduate with an interest in all kinds of fun things, and a will to find even more. I reblog whatever I feel like at that moment, including but by no means limited to: Dr Who, Song of Ice and Fire, Homestuck, Pokemon, Avatar TLA/TLK, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Dept Heaven, Whedonverse. Usually not things that specifically ask me to reblog them, though. *****************************************************

'That's a harp he's playing, Nobby,' said one of them, after watching Imp for a while.
‘Lyre.’
‘No, it’s the honest truth, I’m-’ The fat guard frowned and looked down.
‘You’ve just been waiting all your life to say that, ain’t you, Nobby,’ he said. ‘I bet you was born hoping that one day someone’d say “That’s a harp” so you could say “lyre”, on account of it being a pun or play on words. Well, har har.’

Terry Pratchett, Soul Music (via discworldquotes)

ALBERT SAID THERE OUGHT TO BE SNOW ON IT, BUT IT APPEARS TO HAVE MELTED. IT IS, OF COURSE, A HOGSWATCH CARD 

Oh…

Like the best works of fantasy, a journey with [Terry Pratchett’s] trolls, witches, and crusty night watchmen provokes inspection of our own world. But what other authors do with light allusions, Discworld does with a sledgehammer. And with light allusion too. Then it steals your wallet.

And then [Vimes] realized why he was thinking like this.

It was because he wanted there to be conspirators.

It was much better to imagine men in some smoky room somewhere, made mad and cynical by privilege and power, plotting over the brandy.

You had to cling to this sort of image, because if you didn’t then you might have to face the fact that bad things happened because ordinary people, the kind who brushed the dog and told their children bedtime stories, were capable of then going out and doing horrible things to other ordinary people.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them.

It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No-one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them.

We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do the bad things.

Terry Pratchett, Jingo (via captainofalltheships)

quasi-normalcy:

Seriously, though, why is there so much Sonic porn? What’s the point?

I mean: Is it not a truth universally acknowledged that the hedgehog can never be buggered at all?

He had never wanted to be a wizard. He’d never wanted much, except perhaps to be left alone and not woken up until midday. When he’d been small, people had said things like, ‘And what do you want to be, little man?’ and he’d said, ‘I don’t know. What have you got?’

They didn’t let you get away with that sort of thing for very long. It wasn’t enough to be what you were, you had to be working to be something else.

Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax

“‘What’s empowerin’ about witchcraft anyway?’ said Granny. ‘It’s a daft sort of a word.’
‘Search me,’ said Nanny. ‘I did start out in witchcraft to get boys, to tell you the truth.’
‘Think I don’t know that?’
‘What did you start out to get, Esme?’
Granny stopped, and looked up at the frosty sky and then down at the ground.
‘Dunno,’ she said, at last. ‘Even, I suppose.’
And that, Nanny thought, was that.”
