The prince fought valiantly.
He slayed the dragon.
The princess cried for days.
She loved that dragon.

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

Is this a fanart or an OC? I want to make fanart of this character, like right now.

fanart! she’s from Discworld aw yiss

Start with “Guards! Guards!”

the woman was a city

I applaud this artist for not trying to make Sybil merely voluptuous and in her early twenties or something.

THIS is SOOOO Lady Sybil, and she is made of awesome. 

Sybil is the REAL Mother of Dragons!

Apparently this is "The clearest photo of Mercury ever taken."

why isnt everyone getting so excited about this, it is literally another planet look at how beautiful it is stop what your doing and look at how alien like this planet is what is living there oh my god mercury

From NASA:This colorful view of Mercury was produced by using images from the color base map imaging campaign during MESSENGER’s primary mission. These colors are not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but rather the colors enhance the chemical, mineralogical, and physical differences between the rocks that make up Mercury’s surface.

however, even if someone else in that room had been a human boy at some point, they 100% would not have played with ships in bottles because unlike captain picard, they did not emerge into the world fully-formed as an erudite 19th century gentleman.

So I’m reading Pact, and I’m very much enjoying it.  I’m not very far in, but the author is doing a v. god job re: the Blake/Rose power differential so far.

(Note: the story’s by the author of Worm.  Just saying.)

THIS CROW FUCKING UNDERSTANDS WATER DISPLACEMENT. WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO BE TOLD EVERY YEAR BY A TEACHER HOW WATER DISPLACEMENT WORKS. DO THEY THINK I’M LESS INTELLIGENT THAN A FUCKING CROW? FUCKING DONE.


Crows discovered the principle of displacement in the third century BC, when the philosopher Awkimedes, upon noticing the level of his bird bath rose in proportion with the amount of his body that was submerged, reportedly exclaimed “EURECAW!” and flew through the streets of Athens shouting his discovery.

genre fiction styles

raginrayguns:

gothic literature —> goths

harry potter crackfic —> ??

trashy romance —> ??

epic fantasy —> ??

where were these people in high school

I actually very much regret that there is such a limited range of acceptable styles in day-to-day life. I want to go around wearing capes and giant swoopy gowns, damnit! (Swoopy pants would also work, the important thing is the swoopy.) In other words: if epic fantasy was a style it was acceptable to dress up as, I would be all over it.
