maaru: (love)
As of last week, I have finished all 36 volumes of published Discworld novels. During the last 5 months. I am ecstatic for having read through such a fun series and saddened that there isn't any more for now.

Samuel Vimes is my hero. So fucking awesome, I burst into tears in the middle of Night Watch and sobbed for maybe half an hour. They were tears of happiness, mind you. I love Sybil with the same intensity, because they makes such a great couple they can rule Ankh Morpork and the surrounding countries if they bothered to, what with all the watchmen trained under Vimes and Sybil's connections everywhere. The City Watch is so much love, if I ever fall into Discworld, the first thing I might try to do is apply to the city watch just to be near the awesome (lol).

I realized that the reason I loved Granny Weatherwax so much was that she not only resembled my grandmother (the one who raised me and who passed away last year), but she shared the same philosophy and personality as well. T___T

Other awesome characters, like Mustrum Ridcully (surely, the longest living Archchancellor excepting, y'know, someone whose lifetime is frozen, demands lots of cool points for staying in power for that long) and Havelock Vetinari (manipulate the entire world into not killing you, because the alternative is worse *worships*) and Death (as long as he's with Susan :D). Near the end (read everything in order), I also fell in love with Tiffany Aching (I never thought I'd love a little girl so much) and Moist Von Lipwig (IS it itrue? That Vetinari's grooming him for a successor? Ahahahaha, what a nice rumor). People like Carrot and Rincewind are fun when unexpectedly thrown together with the right people. I have a soft spot for Cheery Littlebottom (Paul kidby's rendition of her? So CUTE).

---- real life update:
Currently enrolled only in Residency Status, so that I have access to the library. Must finish thesis. Must study for JLPT Level 2. I would like to be adopted by a scanlation group so i can practice, thank you.

maaru: (why?)
...why did anybody not warn me that Discworld could be addicting?!

 I usually hate e-books. You have to read them in a computer screen and it hurts your eyes after a while. Then I realized that I can load the damn things onto my DS lite and thus made them less irritating.

The first thing I had loaded were the 29++ Discworld novels.

I finished SEVEN novels in THREE days. Not. HEALTHY. especially for thesis. Curse my speed-reading ability.

I managed to regulate myself to one novel per 3 days. Currently on the 11th discworld novel (well, the order doesn't really matter, it seems).

My verdict, though: Fucking hilarious. Extremely distilled British humor warning. It seems, what Adams did in Hitchhiker's Guide for Sci-fi, Pratchett did for Fantasy. Also, I concluded after ERIC that Wizards=resident Otakus in Discworld. Summoning demons just because you're desperate to meet girls? Take two baths and maybe you can get them to slap you. Might not be much, but it's physical contact 8D.
