Finally remembered that I wanted to comment while I was on the computer. So anyway,

I read it, twice. I enjoyed it, lots. You've got the voices down perfectly, and I was particularly tickled by Vetinari's handling of Young Sam. He's a good Honorary Uncle Havelock, hee.

It was that picture of Young Sam in Vetinari's lap that set off the fic: how to get those two together believably? :D

(I need to make another Discworld icon. Perhaps a GIF of the Watch ... except I need a Detritus and a Cheery and an Igor, first....)

Edit: Mental picture, that is. Mental picture of Young Sam in Vetinari's lap.

Also, I've found a Drumknott! This guy. :D

Well done!

Yes, I got that it was a mental picture, and a wondrous one indeed. Somehow, I can see Vetinari being good with small children if necessary, and even enjoying it a bit, although he'd never admit that to anyone.

I hadn't thought of it that way, but he's absolutely effortlessly good at everything, so I suspect you're right. :-)

and even enjoying it a bit

I think you're right, there, too. ;-)
