Fanfic閱讀筆記 07

其實這篇應該是原本的06,剛剛瞧見了之前貼這篇時手滑貼錯了聯結…

這篇記錄的是Discworld相關。

本來想按閱讀的時間序作記錄,但因為讀的太散了,還是照組合區分比較整齊…

包含的配對/組合:

Discworld:Vetinari, Vimes

Vimes陪同妻子出席替龍募款的餐會,Vetinari也出現了。Vimes想了許多關於Wuffles和Patrician的事。這篇里面有很多有趣的對比,在Guards! Guards!里稱王的龍與Sybil照料的小龍,糟糕的貴族與Vetinari、Sybil這些思緒清楚的貴族。有一段說到Wuffles和Vimes的共通點,很有趣,

Wuffles had the affection of one of the most powerful men on the Disc, and Vimes had stumbled his way into the heart of one of its greatest ladies. They were both aging, tenacious, grizzly characters, and at this late stage in their lives their bark was probably much worse than their bite.

And Vetinari's was the only master's voice either one would obey.

也提到了Vimes和Vetinari這兩人其實沒什么朋友。Vimes和警衛隊里的伙伴處的不錯,但始終隔了Commander的頭銜。Drumknott和Leonard of Quirm嚴格說來也不算是Vetinari的朋友。

最后Patrician過來和Vimes說話,指派他的下一個獵物。Vimes發現Vetinari語他談話時,與對Wuffles說話時的語氣很相似,

If Sam had never heard him talking to Wuffles, he never would have recognized the warmth in the dry and pointed tone.

總之,Commander向Patrician搖著他隱形的尾巴。

分級:T+ (其實覺得更高)
Night Watch的背景(好多故事都是Night Watch的梗啊),Vimes以John Keel的身分,看着年輕的自己犯下錯誤。年輕的實習警員Vimesy被一個不知名的年輕刺客襲擊(Vetinari),之后就跟場車禍一樣一發不可收拾,兩個賀爾蒙旺盛的小伙子挨着別人家的地毯,呃,做了件會后悔的事。其中一段描寫,

And Vetinari performed every movement as if he'd done it a dozen times before. And who knows, maybe he had. Vimes worried at his lower lip with his top teeth. Even if it was hard to picture Vetinari being the Assassin's dormitory slut, stranger things had happened.

Vetinari being the Assassin's dormitory slut…讀到這句我的想象力有點陷入僵局,問問腦子到底要繼續想象呢,或是把想象力關掉,結果一陣掙扎就把水潑到筆記紙上了。

這篇有點扭曲、悖德、晦暗的氛圍。尤其是Vimes(John Keel)明明可以介入,阻止這件事發生,他卻選擇旁觀了會兒后走開。還有那音樂盒,不知該說浪漫或詭譎。

這篇的心境大概是”年輕氣盛來了一發,多年后發現此人是我老板”

睡未來老板/下屬這梗真受歡迎…不過好尷尬呀。


標題:Close Your Eyes And Think Of Ankh-Morpork

作者:possibly_thrice
配對:Samuel Vimes/Havelock Vetinari,其实精准点说是Vimes/Ankh-Morpork/Vetinari
分級:NC-17

Ankh-Morpork毀了。這個曾經偉大的城市成了廢墟塵土,兩個替她貢獻一生的男人卻在斷垣殘壁中存活下來。

Vimes對Vetinari一貫的冷靜感到非常氣憤與不解,他把對Ankh-Morpork之死的絕望、憤怒轉化成另一種行動,想要以此撼動Patrician的理智自持。Vetinari几乎要失去控制但終究沒有,而他沒有崩潰的這點反而造成Vimes的崩潰。整篇故事彌漫着一種末世、混亂、歇斯底里的傷痛感。

As everything was, in its way, about the city, between them, here and now, alive at the heart of so much death.

讀原作的時候,隱隱有種官配是Vimes/Ankh-Morpork或是Vimes/Copper Badge或是Vimes/ Cardboard-Soled Boots或是Vetinari/Ankh-Morpork的感覺。

作者的后記有一句讀到笑出來,提到slasher們為了把最喜歡的兩個直男角色配在一起,要繞多長的路,例如她在這篇故事里,毀了一座城來換一個blowjob。代價真高!

這篇好像是最早讀的Vetinari和Vimes的故事,很喜歡。

Vetinari昨晚驚險逃過刺殺,但這造成了他暫時的不便,顫抖的手無法好好剃胡子。而Drumknott傷的更重無法代勞,Vetinari於是傳訊給Commander來商討昨晚的事件,結果其實是要Vimes替他動手。Vimes從未替別人刮胡,只好站到Vetinari身后,對着鏡子作業以免出錯,而這姿勢出乎意料的親密。最后Vetinari也沒跟他談正事就把Vimes差回去,Commander依慣例搥了牆。

兩個有嚴重trust issue的人拿刀剃胡真是挺緊張的,兩個緊張,讀的人也緊張。通篇充滿着unsolved tension(作者提到不是寫unsolved sexual tension,是因為把sexual加到兩人的張力里,就像把速溶咖啡倒進海洋,雖然存在卻不會改變它的本質),感官描寫也出釆,忍不住一直摩下巴。

But breaking that tension would be like smashing a priceless vase underfoot, just because one could. Vetinari was no lover of art, but there were some things that were simply too carefully crafted, to perfect an example of their art, to be so wantonly destroyed.

這段真是很好的描述兩人的張力,還有Vetinari明明可以化解卻故意不這么做。(搞的Vimes又氣又困惑)故事結尾玩了個a close shave的雙關。

原作里也很喜歡Vimes和Vetinari不時浮出的緊張感。

腦補的緊張感大概是像,兩人效忠的對象是城而不是人,雖然很大程度上相互信任,但只要一方作出對Ankh-Morpork不利或是踰矩的事,還是會除掉對方。

不過就Vimes來說,對城忠誠和對Vetinari忠誠展現出來的結果應該差不遠。誰教這個Patrician老是作對Ankh-Morpork好的決策呢。哈哈Vimes一定很恨這點,害他怎么澄清都沒用處。


標題:An Unexpected Gift

Hogswatch前夕,Vimes趕着回家要把精心准備的禮物送給Sam,准時給他讀床邊故事。Patrician偏偏在這時傳訊要見他。Vetinari問他是否想過城里有多少人是孤獨度過Hogswatch,Vimes被搞得有點不耐,問他想要什么,Vetinari出其不意吻了Vimes并祝他Hogswatch快樂。

最后Vimes從本來要給Sam的禮物袋里,拿出了一組木制模型悄悄留在Patrician桌上,然后匆匆趕回家。

這段頗有趣,Vimes想象幼時Vetinari拆禮物的場景,

Sam tried very hard to imagine a very young Vetinari opening presents on Hogswatch Morning and got stumped at the very small Vetinari part. He seemed to have that neatly trimmed black beard even at age five and Sam really did not want to think about that for very long.

五歲山羊鬍太衝擊,這畫面。

Patrician自行處理他的生理需求,靠着一些想象。到后來一些想象跟Vimes有關。

這個小短篇的前段頗有笑料,讀的時候不禁感慨心細又重邏輯的人過的不容易,

Right, so there's me and…this woman…and she's there because…um… Vetinari opened his eyes and sighed at his mind's refusal to accept illogical situations, even if they were only in fantasy form.

不过是个想象还折腾这么久,Patrician好累。Vetinari get off的方法真是Vimes的不幸,替Commander的血压担忧。

關於Vetinari和Vimes(也包括John Keel)一路瓜葛的故事。

前段寫了在Keel的喪禮上,年輕的Vetinari上前和年輕的Vimes搭話,建議他宮殿警衛或日巡隊的工作,但Vimes不願意。之后大多和Night Watch前差不遠,不過是以Vetinari的觀點敘述。

這篇故事里,讀到作者寫John Keel(Vimes)對Vetinari的影響,還有這件事如何影響Vetinari看待Vimes的方式;還有他小心翼翼瓦解夜巡隊的影響力,但在Vimes越來越有能力后,不得不重新評估他的價值。都挺有意思的。

頗喜歡這句, 

It was a beautiful night, and the lilac bloomed for a man who was not dead.

搞笑點說,這情形對Vetinari而言,就像發現自己年輕時英雄崇拜的對象,是不久前在欺負的下屬啊…而且有很高可能心懷敬意繼續玩弄下去。
