    Summary

    “A woman,” Roberta Meserole had said once, lighting a long black cigarette with a silver lighter, “hides in plain sight. Visibility, Haveline, is our most important asset—”

    She looked up. Around. “Haveline,” she said, “that is not funny.”

    --

    or, how Ankh-Morpork acquired its first female Patrician very, very quietly.

    Even the Dragon-King's temple floods.

    I can't believe this was a 200k-word setup to a single atla reference, and it was TOTALLY WORTH IT.

    "I've summoned a demon for sex," she said, on the second date and the fourth martini. "It's safe as long as you don't let them talk."

    Summary

    “Why are you here?” Parvati asked Pansy once. People asked her a lot, when they found her in Flourish and Blotts, or at work on the Prophet. Their eyes raked her, looking for green, for silver, for venom. Sometimes she'd smile back and let them see the danger.

    "Because I'm not fifteen anymore," said Pansy. "God, do you know what precious Potter Sr. got up to at school, the bully? But boys get to grow up to be men, you see, and us girls just grow up to be bitches."
