Discretion: n. being the better part of valor


I'll be just staying... in today. Very in. So in you all can just pretend I never existed.

Pretend who existed?

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Exactly right.

[identity profile] caged-song.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:14 pm (UTC)(link)
T-That's really in...

[identity profile] caged-song.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:29 pm (UTC)(link)
B-But if you go so in...w-won't it be hard to come back out...?

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Knowing my luck, I'll get safely in, just to find out that I'm in with a troll or the like.

Big chaps usually. Made of rock. Hate when you start fires in their mouths.

Of all the timing... Sounds like a very good idea.

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:29 pm (UTC)(link)
I thought so. Trouble doesn't sneak up on me. It comes after me with a spiked club.

[identity profile] bright-shield.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Unfortunately, I think you'd be lucky if someone came after you with just a spiked club today. Your roommate lying low as well?

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:38 pm (UTC)(link)
My roommate?

Oh, the Patrician.

Er... it's hard to know what he's doing.

[identity profile] bright-shield.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:45 pm (UTC)(link)
That's his nickname... title? It's quite a mouthful! I hope he's not affected as well... there's enough people on the rampage today...

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 07:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Tyrant works, too.

He's the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork. I won't be the wizard calling him Havelock.

[identity profile] bright-shield.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:00 pm (UTC)(link)
The current ruler, eh? I suppose that explains the formality. But our rulers back home are pretty casual, you can drop the titles and call them by their given names.

[identity profile] bright-shield.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:06 pm (UTC)(link)
That bad of a reaction, huh?

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Let's just say that I'd rather light a fire in a troll's mouth. Again.


[identity profile] bright-shield.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:24 pm (UTC)(link)
That... sounds pretty bad. But I suppose formality has it's place and--


[identity profile] bright-shield.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:25 pm (UTC)(link)
--- ah ha ha ha ha...excuse me, someone's apparently launching flying explosives at the city. I hope your 'in' is also suitably 'down'?

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:47 pm (UTC)(link)
I'll work on that.

[ooc: LOL! at the link above.]

[identity profile] bright-shield.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 09:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Good luck! And be careful if your roomate or anyone else is acting a bit off. If you should need any help, just let me-- or any of the sane acting-- city watch members know...

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Just fine. But I can smell something bad in the air and it's not Ankh-Morporkian bad.

[identity profile] letslip.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Not quite Heaven's Gate bad, either.

[identity profile] letslip.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:04 pm (UTC)(link)
You don't want to.

... Can't, anymore, anyway.

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:10 pm (UTC)(link)
I'll take your word for it. I just want to get back to Ankh-Morpork. Or maybe Hunghung. They were going to make me arch-chancellor of their wizard's university, you know. Imagine that. I would have had the best hat.

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 08:15 pm (UTC)(link)
You do?

I mean... yes. Thank you. Er. I've been through a lot with my hat.

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 09:54 pm (UTC)(link)
It has more uses than you'd imagine. And get a bunch of cork and flies aren't as much of a problem.

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 09:59 pm (UTC)(link)
It doesn't look very dignified, but when you're in the middle of Fourecks, dignity isn't as important as not getting eaten, bitten, poisoned, starving, or dying of thirst.

[identity profile] letslip.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
You'll have to tell me more about your world some time.

[identity profile] stylish-bastard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 10:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Rincewind, I truly doubt such a thing is possible. Yours is a very memorable personality.

Nevertheless, it appears that the atmosphere out-of-doors today is somewhat frenetic, and it may indeed be wise to remain as in as is possible.

Rather unfortunate that individuals such as yourself couldn't have been cursed, as opposed to the ones with the ability and desire to start--demolishing buildings, is it? Or building, singular.

[identity profile] failed-wizard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 10:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey now!

I've seen my share of battles. I'm just smart enough not to want to start them, look for them, or stay in them.

[identity profile] stylish-bastard.livejournal.com 2008-04-26 10:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Would that everyone were in possession of such a mentality.

It would at least ensure that the City remain quiet.

Speaking of remaining quiet, I appear to be something of a popular topic of conversation...?

I'm staying inside too~! I think it's safer that way.
