* There's also Leonard of Quirm, drawing men with careful attention to their muscles, measuring Colon's "saddlery regions". Given that he's an AffectionateParody of Leonardo da Vinci, who himself was a bit... iffy, this isn't completely surprising.

* In ''Hogfather'': maybe just meant to be creepy rather than Ho Yay, but did anybody else notice how Teatime's attacking Medium Dave was phrased in the book? "And then Teatime was on him, pushing him irresistibly backwards until he hit the wall." Something about Teatime (possibly his AffablyEvil-ness) in the tv adaptation always made me think this scene seemed a lot like a rape scene. However, Teatime acts very similarly towards Susan, so he's probably not gay. Probably.

* In ''{{Discworld/Hogfather}}'', Ridcully questions the Senior Wrangler as to why they've got mistletoe at their Hogswatch party when there are no women. The Senior Wrangler says that inviting women would "spoil everything" and gets quite evasive about what the point is of having mistletoe. When wassailers show up, the Senior Wrangler says, "I personally have always liked 'The Lily-white Boys', you know," and Ridcully gives him a "sharp look". In short, the Senior Wrangler definitely wants to kiss his fellow [[AlwaysMale wizards]].

* Apparently Vimes would like to be married to this nice old colonel he's just made friends with (in ''{{Discworld/Snuff}}''):
-->I do love her, you know, said the colonel. Weve been married for fifty-five years. Im very sorry youve been troubled and, as Ive said, I envy you your job.\\
I think, perhaps, I should envy her her husband, said Vimes.

** There's a scene in ''{{Discworld/Jingo}}'' where Vimes and Angua have a conversation about how she's sort of like Carrot's dog and Vimes is "Vetinari's terrier", creating an implied comparison between her relationship with Carrot and Vimes' relationship with Vetinari. And Angua drops in a comparison between Vetinari and Carrot in a manner suggesting that Vimes is the expert on Vetinari in the same way that she's the expert on Carrot.

Somehow the whole thing just manages to come across like you could quite naturally assume Vimes and Vetinari are in a relationship and Angua is thinking of giving Vimes some relationship advice.

** In ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'', Vetinari mentions that Drumkott would probably only be interested in 'a young lady prepared to dress up as a manilla envelope', which Drumknott later rather confirms by showing interest in Lady Margolotta's equally stationary-obsessed librarian. However, this has not been alluded to since, and happened in what could be interpreted as a rough patch between Vetinari and Drumknott...

* As of "Moving Pictures", the Unseen University is "run" by Archchancellor Ridcully, who spends all of his time shooting or shouting at things. He and the Bursar share a relationship very evocative of the HenpeckedHusband trope, with Ridcully ordering around the much meeker Bursar, whilst the Bursar just tries to keep Ridcully in check.

*** And doesn't Vetinari say at one point that he's rather shatter the most expensive Ming vase than see one hair be harmed on that "most ancient and venerable head?"

*** Vetinari knows what EVERYONE in Ankh-Morpork eats for breakfast.



** There's also the fact that Vetinari keeps him locked up in an attic, with Leonard's implicit consent. And their conversations are rather easygoing, at least for Vetinari - in ''Jingo'' he talks to Leo about the current political situation and misses a key piece of information in Leonard's side of the conversation, which is quite unlike him.
