redrew the first vimes i ever posted back in 2015 for the 25th of may
it’s been two years now since i started reading discworld and not a day goes by that i don’t think about some part of it. it’s been so influential to making me the person i am today. jingo and night watch, in particular, are so eerily accurate to my feelings in the months since last november. we’ve all lost a lot, i think, in the way of faith in other people, in being able to trust that others will know that people should be treated like people, even if they come from a different place or do things differently.
pratchett’s writing provides not an escape from but a guide to the difficult times ahead. he lays out how things work, and just how fucked up they are, and then looks you in the eye and asks what you’re going to do about it.
thanks for reading. we are here, and this is now.
