Fan Fic / Watchmen In Black

Go To

Watchmen in Black was my first Discworld crossover. I wasn't trying for any impressive feats of prose - I just had a plotbunny involving the Men in Black pursuing a shapeshifting alien fugitive in Ankh-Morpork with the aid of the Watch. Naturally, Hilarity Ensues.

This fanwork contains examples of:

  • Bavarian Fire Drill: Colon and Nobby attempt to stall Vetinari from discovering the fugitive hunt in his own Palace by spinning a tale about fumigating for ninja mimes that no one can see or hear.
  • Advertisement:
  • Big Eater: The shapeshifter.
  • Cool Shades: The standard MIB-issue Ray-Bans.
  • Da Chief: Vimes.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: "Having a Neuralyzer means never having to say you're sorry."
  • Out with a Bang: The implied usual fate of the shapeshifter's chosen targets.
  • Spit Take: J finally gives in and tells Vimes what the shapeshifter is and what she wants. Vimes is taking a sip of coffee at the time. J gets wet.
  • Those Two Guys: Colon and Nobby, in fine form.
  • Un Funny: Vimes.
  • Venus Needs Men: The more powerful, the better.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting
  • You Need to Get Laid: J's implied theory about the root of Rincewind's nervous condition.


How well does it match the trope?
