Wow. That’s really something.

The librarian returns with a physics textbook from Earth.

“Where did he get that?” He’s fairly sure that’s from Earth.

"Oook. Ooooooooooook ooook."

"All libraries are connected," Ponder translates.

Permalink

Seriously?

"Why is this place called Ankh-Morpork?" He directs this question to the librarian.

Permalink

"Oooook. Eek. Ooooooook."

Permalink

"He says he's a librarian, not a historian."

“Tell him that he knew all of those other things that you wouldn’t naively expect librarians to know, so it’s not fair for him to act like it’s unreasonable for me to ask him that! And also that asking questions shouldn’t be discouraged because I can’t possibly anticipate what he might know without even asking the question and what if I avoid asking something because I think he probably doesn’t know the answer but he does know the answer?”

"He can understand you."

Permalink

“Fine. What’s his response?”

Permalink

"You talk a lot," Ponder translates.

Permalink

“And you’re kind of a jerk. It evens out.”

Permalink

"Sorry," Ponder says to both of them.

"You can wait outside if you want?" he tells Lesath.

Permalink

Not a bad idea. Lesath nods and goes to wait outside.

Permalink

A few minutes later, Ponder exists the library with a map of the local area and a map of the disc as a whole.

Permalink

Lesath looks at them nonplussedly. What the fuck. What the fuck. What the fuck.

Permalink

As expected, they aren’t maps he recognizes, even faintly.
