V大人您太帅了,星星眼

From Going Postal.

"I will sue the University! I will sue the University!" screamed Greenyham. He picked up a chair and hurled it at the omniscope. Halfway to the glass it turned into a small flock of doves, which panicked and soared up to the roof.

"Oh, please sue the University!" Ridcully bellowed. "We've got a pond full of people who tried to sue the University—"

"Silence," said Vetinari.

It wasn’t a very loud word, but it had an effect rather like that of a drop of black ink in a glass of clear water. The word spread out in coils and tendrils, getting everywhere. It strangled the noise.

Of course, there is always someone not paying attention. "And furthermore," Stowley went on, oblivious of the hush unfolding in his own little world of righteous indignation, "it’s plain that—"

"I will have silence," Vetinari stated.

Stowley stopped, looked around and deflated. Silence ruled.

"Very good," said Vetinari quietly. He nodded at Commander Vimes of the Watch, who whispered to another watchman, who pushed his way though the crowd and towards the door.

继续啃Discworld小说

《Men at Arms》不是特别喜欢(也就是说,没有如何手不释卷),但《Jingo》是一口气很快看完了。越来越萌Vetinari和Vimes了啊~~~高兴地转圈圈。而且书本身也是非常合我胃口的好书:上班的时候在火车上看,吃午饭的时候一边刨饭一边看,下了班回家路上一样看。只能说,作者的世界观和我的惊人地相似。=o=

目前在读《Going Postal》。Vimes没有出场,但是仍然很喜欢。

Prachett的书,每一本都总是围绕着那么几个话题在转。《Going Postal》对于我而言是关于“过去”。《Jingo》是“国家”与“战争”。《Night Watch》是“革命”。《Feet of Clay》是“神”和“造神”。除了《Going Postal》,每一本都是让我读得一边捧腹一边黯然。《Night Watch》和《Feet of Clay》尤其如此。

Clay of my clay. I will not betray.

一念不灭,万孽俱生。

Ankh-Morpork Assassins' Guild

The Ankh-Morpork Assassins' Guild is a fictional school for professional killers in Terry Pratchett's longrunning Discworld series of fantasy novels. It is located in Ankh-Morpork, the largest city on the Discworld, and is widely considered by the elite to be the best option for a rounded education anywhere.

The Guild of Assassins is located in a light, airy series of buildings next to the Guild of Fools and Joculators, which, being a far more sinister building, is often mistaken for the Assassin's. The guild is currently headed by Lord Downey.

Vetinari大人就是被这种地方教育出来的啊,星星眼。

原帖出自这里(奥德赛公会的碟形世界分馆)。

顺便修改了原帖的一点翻译错误:Vetinari的学位之一是Diploma of Physical Education,原帖里面翻译为物理教育学士。但Physical Education特指体育或者体能训练,故改为“体能训练学士”。

话说Vetinari的种种描述让我感觉相当……奥贝斯坦,笑(一定是因为他们都养了只老狗),而且还有一点Severus Snape。不过Vetinari的腹黑不如奥贝斯坦的明显,而Snape……估计是因为V粉也觉得V可以让Alan Rickman来演?

这整个系列的摘抄,除了Night Watch是我自己抄下来的,其它的都来自于Ealasaid A. Haas女士的Vetinari网站Lord Vetinari: a Special Kind of Person.

The following is taken from Guards! Guards!, where Vetinari plays an important part for the first time.

文字太多。分成几次贴。

《Night Watch》介绍/HC/YY

事情是这样发生的……

将军S协助主君V治理着一个城国
但是将军S比较认死理,并不喜欢超级腹黑V的那些手段

然而英雄总是要走到一起的啊~
