Glorious 25th May
Vimes strolled back to the house. Off the register? Was he allowed to appeal? Perhaps they thought — The scent rolled over him. He looked up. Overhead, a lilac tree was in bloom. He stared. Damn! Damn! Damn! Every year he forgot. Well, no. He never forgot. He just put the memories away, like old silverware that you didn’t want to tarnish. And every year they came back, sharp and...

spidersfilthyassistant: This excites me for two reasons. One, it will be exactly five months until Snuff is released. To, on the 13th of every month his wife releases teasers on the official Terry Pratchett Facebook page and I’m excited to see what we get this month!

"You know what?' said Vimes aloud. 'This is going to be the world's first democratically killed dragon. One man, one stab.'
Then you've got to stop them. You can't let them kill it!' said Lady Ramkin.
Vimes blinked at her.
Pardon?' he said.
Lady, that was the intention, wasn't it? Anyway, it's only stunned,' said Vimes.
I mean you can't let them kill it like this,' said Lady Ramkin insistently. 'Poor thing!'
