Lady Sybil Vimes (née Ramkin) Duchess of Ankh

If you don’t think Lady Sybil is absolutely wonderful and perfect then I don’t even know what to say to you
Lady Sybil who breeds swamp dragons in her spare time
Lady Sybil who once faced down a dragon the size of a street by scolding it firmly
Lady Sybil who sang part of a dwarf opera from memory in order to diffuse a sticky political situation
Lady Sybil who, when kidnapped by werewolves, escaped out of the window and belted one of them around the head with a log…while pregnant
Lady Sybil who darns her husbands socks personally, despite the fact that she is rich enough to buy a new pair every day for the rest of their lives if need be
Lady Sybil, founder of The Sunshine Sanctuary for Sick Dragons AND The Lady Sybil Free Hospital, one of the few hospitals where people actually come out alive
Lady Sybil who has friends and connections around the world and is on a first name basis with Lord Vetinari
Lady Sybil who is one of the kindest, most compassionate, most open-minded characters in the Discworld series, who is endlessly patient and reasonable, who shows tremendous courage in the face of danger, who treats everyone she meets as a equal despite her privileged upbringing and who never compromises her principles or deserts those in need
Lady Sybil <3

Charles Dance as Havelock Vetinari "The Patrician" (Going Postal)

The grin, the ‘surprised’ look, the humorless smile, the cold gaze, the silent amused look, every time I look at Dance’s scenes, I just want to clap my hands. It’s as the same experience as reading the book, even better. It isn’t just a ‘blank look.’ It’s Vetinari.

"People say things like ‘lost in thought’ and think they mean that state of mind that just precedes ‘Pardon? I was thinking’. But that’s just ‘not paying attention’. Lost in thought means that someone may need to come and find you."
Deleted Extract from ‘The Sea and Little Fishes’ - Terry Pratchett (via goldshitter)

Pratchett’s Women - The female characters of the Discworld

attackofthequasars:

I’ve just found this magnificent series of articles on the female characters of the Discworld. It starts with some well deserved criticism of the first few books and the analysis is genuine and smart.

You can find all the parts of the series of articles by tansyrr here:

Pratchett’s Women I – The Boobs, the Bad and the Broomsticks

Pratchett’s Women II – Slash! Stab! A Lesson in Practical Queening in Lords and Ladies

Pratchett’s Women III – Werewolf Glamour and the Sexing of Dwarves in Guards, Guards!, Men at Arms, Feet of Clay

Pratchett’s Women IV – His Henpecked Voice (Jingo & The Fifth Elephant)

Pratchett’s Women V – The Seamstress Redemption in Night Watch

Pratchett’s Women VI – Pole Dancers, Goblin Girls, and the Family Man in Thud and Snuff

Pratchett’s Women VII – A Wonderful Personality and Good Hair – Agnes Nitt Maskerade and Carpe Jugulum

Pratchett’s Women VIII – Has Scythe, Will Teach School – Susan Sto Helit in Soul Music, Hogfather & Thief of Time

Pratchett’s Women IX – The Truth Has Got Her Boots On

These characters deserve and demand attention and some of them are among the best written female characters I’ve ever read.

Note: I truly hope that tansyrr continues her series with articles dedicated to Adora Belle Dearheart and the women in Moist’s series as well as one about the Tiffany series which is a true polyphony of female characters and complicated female issues and plotlines. I fell in love with her critical eye and I can’t wait to read what she would write on those two subjects.
