Fanfic / The New Guild

A one-shot Discworld short by A.A. Pessimal in which Lord Vetinari has to rule on the establishment of a new City Guild and whether or not its chosen name is permissible.

To be found here, at Fanfiction.net. A slightly expanded, revised and improved version of the story is here, at Archive Of Our Own.

This Fanwork has examples of the following:

  • Band of Brothels: Mrs Sandra Battye has in fact secured Guild status for the other sort of Seamstress, the type that actually mends clothes, and is naming it the Guild of Prostitutes.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Sandra. Perhaps also Vetinari.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Sandra Battye's reasons why her Guild should have that name.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Sandra manages to subvert this and subvert it again.
