Crowley wasn't usually so nice. You haven't a lemon in your tea, do you?

Before Aziraphale could respond Crowley's attention was back on Castiel. What for? Aziraphale felt his jaw tighten slightly. He wasn't normally short tempered but Crowley's interest in Castiel was testing that. What made you rebel against hell? Crowley's eyes shot towards the angel across from them. He didn't want to say Aziraphale, but it was true.

Sure, he liked the music and the Bentley, but without Aziraphale there, he couldn't have cared less. I mean it's really hot down there, and dirty," Crowley gave fake sneer. Castiel gave a small tilt of his head, as if considering Crowley's answer. I hope the book helps," Aziraphale stood to walk Castiel to the door. Crowley only gaped at the angel. No one had ever been nice to him like that before, not knowing he was a demon.

Once Castiel was gone Aziraphale seemed to relax. He rebelled. I like anyone who pisses off upstairs," Crowley pointed up, as if at heaven. I'm an angel. Angel's can't get jealous," Aziraphale huffed, his hands clasping insecurely in his lap.

He'd never seen the angel jealous before. Cause I find some human's interesting and that's never bothered you," Crowley pressed, leaning forward, his elbows resting on his knees.

He smirked as he pulled his glasses off and eyed the angel curiously. Aziraphale frowned, avoiding eyes contact with Crowley and not because he was put off by the snake like appearance of them.

Main article: Witches Discworld Witches in Pratchett's universe are largely stripped of their modern occultist associations though Pratchett does frequently use his stories to lampoon such conceptions of witchcraft , and act as herbalists , adjudicators and wise women. That is not to say that witches on the Disc cannot use magic ; they simply prefer not to, finding simple but cunningly applied psychology often referred to as "headology", or sometimes "boffo" far more effective.

The principal witch in the series is Granny Weatherwax , who at first glance seems to be a taciturn, bitter old crone, from the small mountain country of Lancre.


She largely despises people but takes on the role of their healer and protector because no one else can do the job as well as she can. Her closest friend is Nanny Ogg , a jolly, personable witch with the "common touch" who enjoys a smoke and a pint of beer, often leading to her singing bawdy folk songs including the notorious "Hedgehog Song".

The two take on apprentice witches, initially Magrat Garlick , then Agnes Nitt , and then Tiffany Aching , who in turn go on to become accomplished witches in their own right, and, in Magrat's case, Queen of Lancre.

The witches have appeared in numerous Discworld books, but have featured as protagonists in seven. They have also appeared in the short story " The Sea and Little Fishes ".

Their stories frequently draw on ancient European folklore and fairy tales, as well as parody famous works of literature, particularly by Shakespeare. Main article: Ankh-Morpork City Watch The stories featuring the Ankh-Morpork City Watch are urban fantasy , and frequently show the clashes that result when a traditional, magically run fantasy world such as the Disc comes into contact with modern technology and civilization. They revolve around the growth of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch from a hopeless gang of three to a fully equipped and efficient police force.

The stories are largely police procedurals , featuring crimes that have heavy political or societal overtones. The main character is Sam Vimes , a haggard, cynical, working-class street copper who, when introduced in Guards!

Then Carrot Ironfoundersson , a 6-footinch-tall 1. The Night Watch manages to save the city from a dragon, we learn that Carrot is possibly the rightful heir to the throne of Ankh-Morpork, and the Patrician decides to allow Vimes to create a real police force. The City Watch have starred in eight Discworld stories, and have cameoed in a number of others, including Making Money , the children's book Where's My Cow?

Pratchett stated on numerous occasions that the presence of the City Watch makes Ankh-Morpork stories 'problematic', as stories set in the city that do not directly involve Vimes and the Watch often require a Watch presence to maintain the story—at which point, it becomes a Watch story by default.

In the early books, the faculty of UU changed frequently, as rising to the top usually involved assassination.Tomjon, the rightful heir to the throne, is much more interested in acting as King in plays than in being a King in real life.
