It was a little jarring to see the great and the good of Ankh Morpork trying to be frivolous when that actually suited very few of them. He was pretty sure the Disc itself trembled when he say that even Vetinari was dressed up. It wasn't a real stretch as he had dressed as an Assassin which it could be argued was very close to what he wore anyway, but even so everyone had apparently made an effort for Moist Von Lipwig opening of the new central station of Ankh Morpork and the inaugural run of the first luxury locomotive. He’d tried to get out of it, but Vetinari had sent him some very pointed memos about the Law being present as such an event.
Moist would have been harder to recognise if it hadn't been for Mrs Dearheart standing beside him looking like more of a vampire than Lady Margolotta. (Adora Belle Dearheart, in marriage, was certainly not Mrs von Lipwig, and occasionally Vimes wondered if Moist should have given in and changed his name to Mr. Dearheart.)
He was dressed like a highwayman, complete with leather hobby horse on a stick.
Esme Weatherwax (and Mustrum Ridcully) takes on the fundamental functioning of the universe. And the silly prejudices of the other people trying to learn about it.
- Part 5 of Applied Passions
09 Mar 2014
Wherein everybody is protesting, drinking a whole lot of coffee, and falling in and out of love. Nina Lightfingers learns to appreciate the elegance of a lady’s fan wielded with murderous intent, Petiterre is over-caffeinated, Evgeni is banned from reading self-help books, and Brusher is over-protective. Among other things.
