[baseball] sweet lou

So a dwarf, a werewolf, and a vampire walk into a bar...

First week of the new semester = PWNED. I feel really good about this semester. I think that all the good professors I didn't have in previous semesters have come out of hiding and are determined to make me practically drool at the mouth over how fantastic the course subject and their methods of teaching are. I'm going to be writing more than should be possible for one human being in four months but I'll actually enjoy it this time around.

I'm also in the middle of Thud! and, well, there's nothing like Discworld. I cannot believe how long it's been since I've read a Discworld novel. About 2 years. (I have no excuse really. It's just one of those Things that happen and when you realize what has been going on the only option is to correct that mistake. Which I have.) I forgot about Bloody Stupid Johnson! Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler! Even the Librarian! So now I'm in the Pratchett zone and planning on rereading all the Night Watch novels.

I have a feeling I'm the only person in the world who thinks Carrot/Angua/Sally OT3. Probably the end will dash all my thoughts on that.

But but but! Is there a Discworld fandom? IS THERE FANFICTION? I'm terrified and excited to find the answer to these questions. Mostly because fandom seems intent on ignoring canon ships in favor of unconventional ships even when there are awesome canon ships.
