24 Festive Tasks: Door 23 - Hogswatch: Task 2

Wyrd Sisters  - Terry Pratchett Pyramids  - Terry Pratchett Hogfather (Discworld, #20) - Terry Pratchett Men at Arms (Discworld, #15) - Terry Pratchett Sourcery  - Terry Pratchett

Hmmm.  Until I read Pyramids two months ago, this one would have been a no-brainer.  Then I met You Bastard ...

 

OK.  This may be slightly unfair, since Granny simply gets more page time than You Bastard, but:

 

1. Granny Weatherwax

 

2.  Runners-up, on an equal footing:

 

     * You Bastard

     * DEATH

     * Angua

     * HEX

     * The Librarian

 

Total badasses and hilariously funny, the lot of them -- and all of them can expose humanity's (and society's) utter inanity more effectively with a single word, facial expression or gesture than most other characters even by Pratchett himself.

 

ETA: AND the Librarian of course, for all of the above reasons.  How could I possibly forget the awesome Librarian of Unseen University?!

 

(Task: Who is your favorite Discworld character and why?)
