I am very, very excited about this...can you tell?

Prompt: an episode in the life of Lord Vetinari before he became Patrician - anything from more about the Assassins School to the events of Night Watch to how he took over as Patrician, or else something not mentioned in canon.

Prompt: where the hell is Muntab?

Prompt: Polly Perks and Maladicta (gen or as a couple). The war is over. Long live the next war.

Prompt: Gytha Ogg and her husband. Any husband. Any time.

Prompt: Something shiny and new comes to Ankh-Morpork (the bicycle? roulette? Kung-fu? You decide.) How does the city respond? (Bonus points for contributions from Moist, Dibbler, Vimes and/or the Dean.)

Prompt: Where does Cherie Littlebottom shop now? Welcome to the world of dwarf couture.

Prompt: a character from another reality appears in Discworld. To be precise, on the table in the Great Hall at Unseen University in the middle of one of the more important meals of the year. Life ensues. (Crossover with whatever you like. The Jossverse or SPN would make me happy, but so would many other alternatives.)

All great! (as a Vetinari fan, I'm hoping somebody takes prompt one, but all of them would be excellent)

Prompt: Young Havelock Vetinari on the Grand Sneer.

Prompt: Who was the Duck Man before he...er...acquired a duck? And how did that happen, anyway?

Prompt: Glenda Sugarbean and Nutt in Quirm. Or Uberwald. Or Fourecks. Anywhere that is not Ankh-Morpork.

Prompt: Unlike Dibbler and Gaspode, Victor didn't end up in Ankh-Morpork again once the Holy Wood magic vanished, and we never heard from Ginger again, either. So what DID happen to them?

Prompt: How DOES a human become a dwarf?

Excellent! (and yes, much though I love Ankh-Morpork, I love seeing the rest of the Disc just as much)

I think I'll let 2-3 people claim the same prompt, since some people will claim prompts but won't submit anything. :)

I'm strangely fond of kidfic...or even stories about my favorite characters as kids (I'd love to see Vetinari as a little boy *g*)

Do! They're wonderful books--in a lot of ways, they're my favorites of his: all of the humor and insight and the amazing characters, of course, but more tightly plotted than most of the Discworld books. And Tiffany is amazing. :-)

Oh wow, this is so exciting! Everyone's prompts are fantastic.

Prompt: AU, Young Sybil and Sam meet, metaphorical houses are set on fire, here be dragons, romance!, chaos and probably accusations of impropriety ensue.

Prompt: Ridcully and Granny Weatherwax, fifty years ago during the summer in Lancre.

Prompt: Otto flirting with William and Sacharissa mostly in good fun.

Prompt: Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg through the years, including their first ever meeting.

Prompt: Cherie Littlebottom prodding serious buttock, possibly in a moment of forensic genius.

Prompt: Ponder and Bengo Macarona--professorly rivalry that turns into a very odd friendship and an even odder romance. Crack crack craaack.

Prompt: Crossover! BBC!Sherlock and Granny Weatherwax discuss things but mostly argue in a very headological way.

I think it's a fascinating idea--they've both serious brain power and know people so well, but it's in totally different ways! They'd probably get into such a rumpus about it. Maybe even a fracas.

Seeing "ruby" (slippers) and "brick" (road) together made me think this was going to be a Wizard of Oz prompt! :)
