Tear Jerker / Sourcery

  • Rincewind's Heroic B.S.O.D. and the description of him scrabbling through the rubble of the ruined library.
    • Not just that but the ruined library at all. There was also the matter of whether the Librarian got out or not.
  • Rincewind's one good deed.
    • When he's fighting the Thing, he notices that Coin isn't running. Then he starts to - toward Rincewind. Rincewind has to resort to screaming the same abusive line Coin's father told him when he tortured the boy in order to get Coin to obey and escape back into the world. And then the portal closes, meaning that's the last thing he said to Coin.
  • Spelter and Carding- both starting out as your standard vicious wizards, both coming to realize something is horribly, horribly wrong... and both discovering that Redemption Equals Death. Extra-horrible bonus points for Carding, since the readers get a Gory Discretion Shot but Coin doesn't.
  • The beginning with Ipslore and his wife's death: "All my magic could not save her."
    • These things happen. They have to. Sorry.
