Weekly Pratchett Quote

There was a polite beeping from the Thing. "You may be interested to know," it said, "that we've broken the sound barrier."
Masklin turned wearily to the others. "All right, own up. Who broke it?"
--Terry Pratchett, Wings
Greetings all!

Entry covers:
Contest Winner Banners
12 Days of Hogswatch Contest

Look! Banners for the contest winners! I totally took a completely reasonable amount of time to make these!










CONTEST!
So. Clearly I am not organized enough to make contest banners in a timely fashion. However, :iconapelican: had an idea of a contest that I think would be quite fun to run. So, to ensure this goes a bit more smoothly, I am looking for people who would be willing to make banners for the contest winners. They don't have to be anything fancy as long as they are finished by 15th of January. Anyone who is interested should either contact me or reply to this post.

The contest is as follows:

12 Days of Hogswatch
Deadline: 21st December, 2011
Voting: 22nd December - 29th December
Winners Announced: 30th December
Banners Posted: 16th January

Rewrite the old carol the Twelve Days of Christmas with Pratchett themed lyrics. The most obvious choice is to give it a Hogswatch spin, but if someone wants to try their hand at writing a song for one of the other books that will be accepted as well.
Not a wordsmith? No worries! Other art forms (paintings, photos, etc.) will also be accepted as long as they depict a gift for all twelve days.

Here's the original song. Let's see what you can do with it:

On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

On the second day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the third day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fourth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fifth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the seventh day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the eighth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the ninth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the tenth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the eleventh day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!

Man I just finished reading Terry Pratchetts "Dodger" which came out this year. It was my first book from him and I really questioned myself: Why? WHY THE HELL DIDN'T YOU READ HIS STUFF EARLIER?"
XDDD
I love this book and I am currently working on a fanart of it.
After I finished Dodger I went to my local bookstore and bought the first Discworld bokk "The colors of magic" at the same day.
I am hyped to continue reading and sink into the discworld =DD I am really happy that there is a deviantart group to this great author =DDD

I wrote a thank-you to TPerry. I was wondering if there was any chance of getting it up here?

Sure! Just submit it to the group. We accept pretty much anything Pratchett related and that follows the DA TOS. If you have any questions about how to submit let me know and I can explain it in more detail.
