'Vimes, you have gone insane,’ said Rust. ‘You can’t arrest the commander of an army!’
‘Actually, Mr Vimes, I think we could,’ said Carrot. ‘And the army, too. I mean, I don’t see why we can’t. We could charge them with behaviour likely to cause a breach of the peace, sir. I mean, that’s what warfare is.’
Vimes’s face split in a manic grin. ‘I like it.’
‘But in fairness our – that is, the Ankh-Morpork army – are also–’
‘Then you’d better arrest them too,’ said Vimes. ‘Arrest the lot of ‘em. Conspiracy to cause an affray,’ he started to count on his fingers, ‘going equipped to commit a crime, obstruction, threatening behaviour, loitering with intent, loitering within tent, hah, travelling for the purposes of committing a crime, malicious lingering and carrying concealed weapons.’
‘I don’t think that one–’ Carrot began.
I can’t see ‘em,’ said Vimes.

Dwarven Children concepts by Daniel Falconer (DF) (his daughter is the girl in the first photo who consented only if she were made a dwarf princess) and Frank Victoria (FV) of WETA Workshop. From “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Chronicles.”

DWARF BABIES

EEEEE

(Also: well played, Daniel Falconer’s daughter.)

I would like to point out that Thror’s crown— the crown of the King Under the Mountain— features two ravens bowing to one another, and that apparently the crown/headpiece of a princess also features a raven, this one standing proud.

idk I just

ravens man.  ravens and the royal line of Durin.

I like that it’s a thing.  I also like that they explicitly made her a specific princess.  they took that seriously.

I’m watching X-Men (2000) and holy shit everyone looks so young. Hugh Jackman looks like a goddamn college student. Anna Paquin was practically a fetus.

And then there’s Patrick Stewart. He looks the same as I imagine he did in 976 AD.

couldn’t find a picture from then but here he is around 30 AD

A less practised runner would have risked a glance behind, but Rincewind knew all about wind drag and the tendency for inconvenient rocks to position themselves under the unwary foot. Besides, why look behind? He was already running as fast as he could. Nothing he could see would make him run any faster.
