Just been watching some GoT Season 1 with family. Remind me, because it’s been a while since I read the first book: Loras and Renly aren’t fucking in the books, right?
- Terry Pratchett, author of the Discworld series, on writing magic. (via theticklishpear)
Why I fucking hate stories that involve magic
The plot of nearly every Discworld book involving the wizards is:
1. Wizard does stupid thing
2. Dungeon Dimensions open up and something crawls out
3. Everything goes horribly wrong
4. Rincewind fixes everything using some combination of abject terror, bravery, dumb luck, and a half-brick in a sock.
