Certainly is a tearjerker that they would mangle the reference, since Pratchett wasn't a king and was a very humble man so probably wouldn't have appreciated being attributed royalty. ;-)

* This tribute picture: http://morloth88.deviantart.com/art/The-End-519838429com/art/The-End-519838429 * In the wake of his death, two trends became very meaningful and pervasive among Pratchett's fans. ** The first was "Death brought the sword", since it's explained in one of the books that for the common folk, Death has a scythe, but kings get the sword. ** Instead of signing 'RIP Terry Pratchett', fans started tagging 'GNU Terry Pratchett'. This is from Going Postal, where it is a mechanism of the clacks towers that any message marked "GNU" will continue to be passed up and down the lines. And a man never dies as long as his name is still spoken...

So much melodrama.
[[AC:Other]] * The introduction in which Terry writes about getting letters from people who are due to meet Death, and hope that he is as Pratchett has written him. Not just any people. CHILDREN. Terminally ill children who thank Mr. Pratchet for making Death less scary for them. Let's just say Terry wasn't the only one left [[HeroicBSOD staring at the walls]] when they read that. * What may be the ultimate TearJerker for the whole Disc- the fact that Terry Pratchett is suffering of a disease that will slowly corrode him and his brilliant mind, until nothing remains of the brainpower that creates and fuels this amazing world. ** Worse: He's made a documentary discussing the concept of assisted suicide, showing a half dozen people suffering from horrible diseases that have absolutely destroyed their bodies, yet they are just as alive and bright in mind as Pratchett himself... ...and the point of it all is explaining and showing how he plans to end his own life. Here's a link: http://vimeo.com/25239708 . *** He wrote a Dimbleby Lecture, about a year after that documentary was made. It was about euthanasia, and the single hardest thing to watch in it is him explaining that he needed his friend Tony Robinson to read out his entire speech for him, because his brain just is not capable of letting him properly read any more. The look on everybody's faces, and the obvious way Pratchett is struggling to read about a page of notes- the introduction- is heartbreaking. Making it worse is that he sits on stage afterwards, extremely dignified, as Robinson reads the speech, and the camera keeps cutting occasionally to Pratchett quietly sitting in his chair, his hat covering his face.
