inktober 21 The Librarian by Loopydave inktober 21 The Librarian by Loopydave
“The three rules of the Librarians of Time and Space are:
1) Silence;
2) Books must be returned no later than the last date shown; and
3) Do not interfere with the nature of causality.”
 - Men at Arms

A librarian that is accidentally turned into an Orangutan and prefers it this way... only in a Pratchett book.

Thanks Dave! I'm tempted to paint this one up properly once Inktober is over - the ink sketch is a bit rushed and I want to do the Librarian justice

Rincewind: "No, I don't have a library card Ape!"

Librarian: Ook?!

Rincewind: "Ape... on... Ape-on... upon my person, yes upon my person.  Whew... at least I didn't say 'Monkey.'"

Librarian: *Head-smashes Rincewind*

For some people its 'never talk about fight club', but on the disc world, the number one rule is 'never use the M word' :D

Do you mean, is he getting ready to hide, take cover, conceal, obscure, veil, stow away from a Thesaurus. ;)
Sorry, couldn't help myself there :D

In most old libraries the books are chained to the shelves to prevent them being damaged by people. In the Library of Unseen University, of course, it’s more or less the other way about.

–Sourcery

You don't use the "M" word. Gets right up his nose, sir. He can't help it, he loses all self-control. Like a red flag to a wossname, sir. "Ape" is all right, sir, but not the "M" word. Because, sir, when he gets angry he doesn't just go and sulk, sir, if you get my drift. He's no trouble at all apart from that, sir. All right? Just don't say monkey. Ohshit.

–Sergeant Colon, Guards! Guards!

Great quotes again. The other quote I really like about the Librarian is from Sourcery is one where he is described as 'attempting with some success to unscrew the mans head' or something like that. :D

'Am I alone in thinking, by the way, that it doesn’t add to the status of the University to have an ape on the faculty?’
‘Yes,’ said Ridcully flatly.  ‘You are. We’ve got the only librarian who can rip off your arm with his leg. People respect that.'

Another sheer masterpiece!!!
