meets fellow Night Watchman
His Grace, His Excellency, Blackboard monitor, The Duke of Ankh; Commander Sir Samuel ”Sam” Vimes.
Vimes is not impressed
I love The Discworld! Especially the Watch books and anything set in Ankh-Morpork. Like the Moist books and The truth and one of the Wee Free Men books and some of the Wizard books and and and… I love the entire Discworld
Also I am (like the rest of the world) enamoured with the TV series: Games of Thrones.
It has some Kick Ass characters!! Tyrion! Basically the entire Female Cast! LOVE LOVE LOOOVE
I have not read Song of fire and Ice, incase someone was wondering
Both these worlds have Sams, Night watches aaaaand Charles Dance in their TV adaptations!
I was waiting for someone to make this joke, I got tired of waiting
Everyone ad their aunt names someone in their fiction “Sam” or “Sam” for short. Seriously think about it, you’ll get a staggering number
I even include a GoT allusion in my (so bloody awful it's never going to see the light of day) DW fanfic: a fish-out-of-water OC has just made a big, un-Sue-ish mistake, and the rest of the Watch takes turns stabbing her and saying "For the Watch" and then leave her to bleed out...though "fortunately for her, and unfortunately for the reader who does not like original characters in fan fiction, this was but a hallucination"
Sigh, the Night's Watch and City Watch crossover possibilities are endless
There are many fun ideas one could use yeah ^^
I know right too many possibilities for crossover/allusion than my tired stupid brain can think of right now
I pledge my life and honour to the City Watch, for this shift and all shifts to come?
That's all my two brain cells could think of at the moment, but someone could do a really funny parody of the Night's Watch oath as a City Watch oath
I personally wouldn't be a good person to consult with that cossover. I know to little about Song of ice and fire.
Maybe use the key exchange thing form Unseen academicals?
I included several allusions to ASOAIF in my DW fanfic, but no crossover (however implied crossover with Doctor Who, the Cthulhu Mythos, and Neil Gaiman's work, that's another story...) though I'm up to date on Game of Thrones and I read the first book
That's a possibility, though I haven't read UA yet (sigh, the dilemma of being compelled to gulp a series down whole while wanting to savor them...)
I know lots of people really like Jon Snow - I did too at the start - but at some point he transformed into a whingy annoying person who always has his mouth open... This probably offends a whole legion of fans
But yes, Vimes is just awesome and I do love Charley Dance both as Vetinari and as Tywin Lannister
And Thwin amd Vetinari could play a nice game of cyvasse/thud and talk about politics until they try to kill eachother.
Vetinari would win. He has never had a undashing incident with his son and a toilet.
Imagine how different the first book would have been if Vimes had been in charge of the City Watch instead of Janos Slynt...
Everybody:Get that cat of my throne1Your throne? (start arguing).
Greebourrs and kills dragons with one claw.
Everybody:When I think better,who needs to be king (Queen!yes,that too.)?All that work and numbers,all hail king Greebo fast!!!
I mean,he is just scared of You (granny Weatherwax's cat,so makes sense) and Nac Mac Feegle (who can kill troll and got kicked out of Elfland because they were too violent,even if they claim that was because they fought against Queen's evil wishes,but only when they are somber enough to remember that story,which is rare).I don't count Legba,as Greebo just retreated when confronted by god Miss Gogol created,then in human form had vegneance.Given Nanny's statement in that book that he is fiend (secret among witches,just as afore-mentioned witch mentioned to her as secret that Legba is ordinary cock) and she normally dfeends him,we should take statement literally.nanny does have knack for demons.
No hot chick, just bros

It's not a bad thing but you don't have your facts straight.
Song of ice and fire would not have sold as well as it did had not Lord of the rings been made in to films and taken the world by storm.
Before Lord of the rings fantasy wasn't a genre to be taken seriously. people used whool and nittedd and then sprayed it with silver paint wen they were to film chainamail.
Game of thrones wouldn't be if not LotR paved way and can't be named the force behind fantasy's mainstreem acceptance.
I can give them thr rivival after Eragon killed it for the genre on the screen. but I can't give it more than that.
And you ask your fellow fantasy loving firends and a lot of them will know of Discworld. it's a huge fenominon but it's a bit of an acuierd taste and doesn't tickle everyones fansy, too much satire and dry humour i guess. I really enjy and adore Game of thrones, I do. it's a great show.
I can only imadgen what Ledgend of the seeker feelt when they saw what people could do.
