I've realised who I am.

... I'm freakin' Twoflower.

Twoflower in the Discworld, the happy-go-lucky idiot tourist who's always getting out of scrapes by the skin of Rincewind's teeth?

Kidding? You haven't read the Discworld books? Oh you must, you must! Even under rocks they have 'em!

Man. *grins* You are going to be so blown away, when you do.

Start with: Interesting Times, Small Gods, Men at Arms or Good Omens, I'd suggest. 8D

Oh, post, definitely. I always think of the Luggage as belonging to Rincewind, really.

... as per the Art of Discworld, I even have Twoflower's daft grin.

I have a shirt with flowers on, begorrah but I do. I have a camera AND a camera-phone, which works about as well as a bolshy iconograph demon, so -- qualified, yars? :)

I am rather dopey, naive and have a stupid grin, among other things. 8D

Rather. ;)

Cool.
Insufferable, man.: bitch - wastedfairycynicalpirate on May 28th, 2005 02:58 pm (UTC)
I s'pose I have to pick a literary character you've never heard of now, do I? Bloody Discworld.

Hmm... I'm Anne-Marie.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 28th, 2005 03:10 pm (UTC)
Durr, you are gonna have to read them eventually, yanno. Particularly with me around. ;)

Okay. Twoflower's from a couple of the DW books, but his best one is Interesting Times. He goes through life happy as a lark because all the bad things happen to his sidekick, Rincewind. Twoflower's a tourist.

So ... who's Anne-Marie? Aside from my mam's friend, who gave me a job and walks around her office with no shoes on.
Insufferable, man.cynicalpirate on May 28th, 2005 03:53 pm (UTC)
BLURRY HELL OF COURSE I KNOW WHO TWOFLOWER IS. He's the dude that wrote the book on Ankh-Morpork, right? I've read nearly to the end of Interesting Times, the ONLY Discworld I've read except for Faust Eric.

Actually, I think I may be wrong about Twoflower. Read it a while ago. But I 'ope not.

Anne-Marie is from Midnight Is A Place, which I used to love and now do not. She is a frightfully rude little French girl who picks up English amazingly fast, and everyone adores her (after about halfway through the book). Before that they just think she's a contrary foreign bitch. Which she is. But also about eleven. And she knows how to make fresh cigarettes from butts people leave lying in the snow.

Good girl. What I did on my holidays has to be the funniest made-up book in the history of... well, of made-up books. I lurve Interesting Times so much. URINATING DOG! URINATING DOG! *dissolves into giggles, in manner of Amelie*

Nope.

Who writted it? I don't believe I've heard tell of it afore. And is this by relighting the cigarette butts, or by unrolling them, getting the tobacco out and re-rolling them in tobacco paper? 'cause, dude, I could do that. :P
Insufferable, man.cynicalpirate on May 28th, 2005 04:24 pm (UTC)
Well, don't I just win at life. *is proud*

S'not that good. I can't remember the author; I think it was a woman. It was set in Victorian England. Anne-Marie sold the re-made ciggies to get money for her and Lucas (this English boy she was staying with who was about 18). They were both orphans who'd been thrust onto the streets together. He was like Remus, except less cool. *thinks* I think she unrolled them. Lucas worked in the sewers and never brought home any dough. Anne-Marie owned him.

Hmm, hmm, am I spotting a hint of Ridcully in these entries?!

Pffle, I gave it to my lover friend, Rincewind.

OMG I JUST SLASHED TWOFLOWER. EWWWWWWWW.
Mithmithborien on May 30th, 2005 12:58 am (UTC)
My mind hurts from that slash pair.

Although...

... I'm sure someone has already done it.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 30th, 2005 01:59 pm (UTC)
Of course they have.

Dude, there's a fic for Trevor/Voldemort.

Begone, ya wee beastie!!

*grins*

He's a famous, idiotical, happy-go-lucky Terry Pratchett character.
Caitcoralia13 on May 29th, 2005 12:53 pm (UTC)
I really must read him, mustn't I?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 30th, 2005 01:46 pm (UTC)
Um.

YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!
amberthefool on May 29th, 2005 08:24 am (UTC)
*giggle* You very lucky tourist are? Explain plzkthx.

Can you tell I've been rereading Pratchett? XD
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 29th, 2005 11:54 am (UTC)
Oui!

I just seem to be a terminally cheerful idiot. At least, that's how I seem to come across. I've even got the grin down -- have you seen the Art of Discworld? That sparked it off...
amberthefool on May 29th, 2005 11:57 am (UTC)
Hee. I have seen it and coveted it, precious. But it is too expensive *sigh*
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 29th, 2005 12:04 pm (UTC)
Mmm, yay for gift vouchers! :)
amberthefool on May 29th, 2005 12:05 pm (UTC)
I have vouchers, but not enough. Woe.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 31st, 2005 01:00 am (UTC)
Honestly. They should give them out for free.
amberthefool on May 31st, 2005 01:03 am (UTC)
Hee. Then I would definitely shop at more bookstores more often :D
bat crimeiceetoile on May 29th, 2005 10:44 am (UTC)
...and that's a bad thing?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 29th, 2005 11:55 am (UTC)
It is, in terms of ever being taken seriously, or having a psycho-ing-out moment... *pouts*
bat crimeiceetoile on May 29th, 2005 12:30 pm (UTC)
awww. But hey! Secretly you're sort of a dangerous revolutionary! And therefore cool.
-ish.

every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on May 31st, 2005 01:00 am (UTC)
Cute. Yes. I am a Labrador puppy sort of person. GAH.
