YMMV / Interesting Times

The Roleplay:

  • Best Known for the Fanservice: With her penchant for skin-tight leather and whips, Minevra's caused quite a stir. Some still don't actually recall her name or hair color, but can vividly describe the way her very thin dress flutters ever so provocatively in the wind...
  • Lawful Evil: Xert.

The Discworld novel:

  • Broken Base: One of the most controversial books in the series thanks to the never-ending parade of Asian stereotypes. Granted stereotypes and their lampshading are standard for the Discworld, but...
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Probably unintentional by Pratchett, but Rincewind repeatedly says "Your wife is a big hippo!" to a widower.
    • It's rather harder to laugh at the senility of Cohen's crew after Terry Pratchett's own experience with Alzheimer's.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Twoflower's character in The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic once he explains how his wife had been killed (along with a few streets of other civilians) during a minor and pointless little scrap between Lord Hong and Lord McSweeney. His absolute unflappability in the face of near-certain death takes on a tearjerking new meaning when you realise that he understood what true evil really is all along.
