* Lord Vetinari seems to respond to practically everything Sam Vimes says or does with a weird mix of pride and amusement. And teasing. The fact that they meet ''every day'' while Vimes has to endure Vetinari's playful manipulation either suggests HoYay or FoeYay... depending on whether Vimes finally snaps and strangles him or not. It's also worthy of note that Vimes is apparently the only person that Vetinari trusts in the conventional sense, rather than the "[[CrazyPrepared so aware of exactly what they'll do in any situation that there's no cause for concern]]" sense in which he 'trusts' everyone else.
** Totally out of context, but at the end of ''Night Watch'' there's an exchange. Looks like it's [[AllLoveIsUnrequited one-sided]].
---> '''Vetinari''': And if you care to come along to my office tomorrow, we can settle the-
---> '''Vimes''': There's a trial tomorrow. [...] I want this bastard to hang, after all.
---> '''Vetinari''': Well then, afterward we could-
---> '''Vimes''': Afterward I'm going home to my family for a while.
** Similarly out of context but even this troper, who is fairly critical of most Vetinari/Vimes fanworks or theories, had to raise her eyebrows at this snippet of dialogue from ''Jingo'':
---> '''Vetinari''': You're not going to handcuff me?
---> '''Vimes''': Why should I do that?
---> '''Vetinari''': Treason is very nearly the ultimate crime, Sir Samuel. I think I should ''demand'' handcuffs.
---> '''Vimes''': All right, if you insist.
---> '''Vetinari''': You haven't any shackles, by any chance?
** Then there's this little conversation between Dr. Downey and Carrot in ''Feet Of Clay'' regarding Vetinari's poisoning:
---> '''Downey''': I believe [Vimes] personally took over the investigation of the poisoning?
---> '''Carrot''': Well, yes. But-
---> '''Downey''': Didn't you think that was odd?
---> '''Carrot''': No, sir. Not when I thought about it. I think he's got a sort of soft spot for the Patrician, in his way. He once said that if anyone was going to kill Vetinari he'd like it to be him.
** The adorable and amusing moment when a younger Vetinari reports on seeing Vimes for the first time in an alternative timeline. Looks like Vimes pretty much blew his mind.
--->'''Vetinari:''' I can't believe what I saw. I thought he was a thug. And he ''is'' a thug. You can see his muscles thinking for him. But he overrules them moment by moment! I think I saw a genius at work.
* Lord Vetinari/Drumknott is a popular ship:
** Drumkott's function in the books is as a sounding-board for Vetinari to talk in a relatively open, neutral and honest way (since in his dealings with every active character, from Vimes to Ridcully, there's always an element of manipulation going on). The result on the page is that Vetinari comes across as being quite close and trusting towards his secretary. Drumknott in turn is utterly loyal and attentive to Vetinari's habits, to the point that in ''{{Discworld/Snuff}}'' it's mentioned that most people would consider Drumknott's ability to interpret his master's thoughts as 'magic'.
** In ''Discworld/TheTruth'' when it appears that Vetinari has had a breakdown and stabbed Drumknott, the latter's reaction is to be ''embarrassed'' on behalf of his employer.
** Vetinari for his part is equally observant of his employee's habits - for instance, in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'' he knows what Drumknott eats for breakfast, which raises the question of when he had the opportunity to find out.
** 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...
*** The ship is sailing at full force once more after Snuff and Raising Steam. Especially after the latter, where Vetinari and Drumknott are ''exceptionally'' companionable, if not outright close.
* 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 [[SweetPollyOliver Monstrous Regiment]], Tonker and Lofty are text, albeit small text.
** In the ''subtext'' regions... well, Shufti and Polly do end up running an inn together, at least until Polly has to run away on another damn fool adventure with Maladict.
*** Shufti and Paul ended up running the inn and raising at least one kid together.
*** [[spoiler:Maladicta]] is plainly fixated on Polly, whether or not it's in a romantic way. The way she tries so hard to impress Polly: pure Les Yay. Not to mention the bit where Polly has her thrown over her shoulder and carries her back to camp after the incident with the bag from the sky.
*** Tonker's reaction to seeing the newly feminine Igorina seemed a lot less like the "Okay, that's weird" reactions of the others and a lot more "Gah! [[DistractedByTheSexy She's hot!]]"
* Sally's dialogue with Angua seems pretty flirtatious at times (suggesting that they wrestle naked in the mud, for example) and most of Angua's jealous reasons for disliking Sally strike one as the type of thing she would write in her diary about anyone else. "She's so smart, she's so pretty, she's so special."
* 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.
* ''Snuff'' introduces a pair of background characters who have a suspiciously Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West aura about them (the book is one long string of shout-outs to English rural novelists and poets). It is perhaps legitimate in this context to return to ''Soul Music'' and re-appraise the characters of spinster schoolmistresses Miss Butts and Miss Delcross, who very carefully cultivate an aura of never having married because they are dedicated to the girls they teach at the upscale Quirm Academy for Young Ladies. Running the Disc's premier boarding school for girls, they can therefore live together and attract no suspicion.
** ''Snuff'' also gives us Stratford telling Flutter to take his clothes off (ostensibly because they're covered in blood, but...) and having a conversation with him which couldn't be described because "gossip can be so cruel"...
* And then, of course, Ankh-Morpork now boasts the Blue Cat Club among its places of entertainment. Its proprietor, Mr Harris, is a fully paid up Seamstress, on the grounds that ''un-natural acts are only natural''.
* The restaurant scene in the film of ''GoingPostal'' shows Gilt looming over Moist in a rather creepy way. Adora looks at them in horror and sputters "You ... and him?"
* 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.
