if u could make a request....

Postby witches&watchmen » Wed Jul 28, 2010 7:29 am

If u could make a request rom Terry Pratchett, what type of book would u want?
I would love a book with Vimes and nanny weatherwax and nanny interacting. I think they would learn to respect each other. It would also be cool to see Granny putting one over Vetinari, or Vetunari beeing surprised at Vimes. It would be o cool. I dont suppose we could make a request though, but it would be cool.
What do u think?

Welcome to the forum, witches&watchmen! :D

Actually, I think I'd like to see some new characters in a part of the Disc we haven't visited yet.

Can't really make anyproper requests as I am only up to The Truth in my reading!

Welcome to the forum.

I have always liked this idea, but its one of those where I'm sure it would be a letdown if it happened - I thought it would happen in 5th Elephant briefly when Vimes passed by Lancre on the way to Uberwald, but nope!

But this interests me more, I like Pyramids and Small Gods because of this, they were like pleasant diversions, getting to know other areas and traditions. Although I read them knowing there were more with the regular characters to come.

Is there a reason the books are mainly AM and Lanre now?

Well Monstrous Regiment was set in a different place as was much of Thud! I think it's got a lot to do with using well known and loved characters. :wink:

Cool can't wait to read those, I guessed as it was a Vimes book Thud was set in AM, didn't realise it was another trip like 5th Elephant.

I would still like to see Gaspode and Maurice team up (together with the Rats) for a story. Failing that, I would like to read a story set in Discworlds equivalent of Southern Africa (with a thousand elephants!) 8)

Is there any word on how many Terry has left in him?

The Alzeimers documentary that I watched last year said he had two left, I assumed that was Unseen Academicals and I Shall Wear Midnight. But now there is word of his next being Snuff, (+ Raising Taxes)

I really don't think it does to speculate on such matters - apart from anything else it seems somewhat disrespectful to me.

Writing it obviously a very important part of Terry's life and something that he's not likely to give up until he has no choice.

Let's hope he can continue to write for as long as possible - and wish him the very best of health while he is doing so. :)

Something with the Assassins' Guild - like the start of Pyramids but without the Pyramids bit after.

I'd totally agree on that one. Actually, I'd settle for just Vimes and Granny Weatherwax, perhaps working together on a case in both AM and Lancre that drew them together from separate directions. They're both so similar that it'd be fun to see the sparks flying from their confrontations. Just to see Granny's reaction to Nobby alone would be worth it: "So, what are you, then?"

I think they might make good contestants on Celebrity Masterchef or some similar cookery show. I imagine the recipes/ingredients going something like this;

    Dr. Hix = Some kind of innocuous looking curry that contains a delayed reaction burn on the tastebuds. :twisted:

    Lu-Tsu = Something involving yak butter and yak's milk! Image

    Nanny Ogg = .........(unprintable)........ :oops:

    Nobby = Knuckle sandwich in a Winkles beer gravy. :shock:

    Susan = Something conservatively chocolate based. Image

    Rincewind = Potatoes. :wink:
