Fandom: Discworld

Title: Say Yes

Author: Mercator

Rating: R

Pairing: Vetinari/OFC

Summary: Hogswatchnight, and a seamstress becomes a very special gift for a very exclusive Client.


Story Status: Complete.

Shannon's Thoughts: Too often it's so easy to overlook fanfic with original main characters. I know that I usually think, "It's fanfiction. I want to read about the canon characters, not ones the author feels like inserting into the universe." However, the main character of "Say Yes", Hanna, is so well-written, I can't help but enjoy the story. Many times, female characters are atrociously written--so much so, that there are multiple LJ communities out there to report these so-called "Mary Sues". (See marysues, deleterius, canonsues, etc. A list of spin-off groups is available on the marysues community info page.) However, Hanna is fantastic--and she doesn't turn the Patrician completely OOC. In fact, her attempted manipulations show how in-character Vetinari is.

Final judgment: 9/10.
