Chain Break by JesIdres Chain Break by JesIdres
Silly little cartoon I actually though up 4 months ago, but this is the first time I got it somewhat right.

Came to me after reading the line in T5E about "The Watch put the final swell on Carrot's muscles"... How does one tell when you've grown out your chainmail when you're 6'6" (screw Thud's measurements) and nearly as broad across? Hope nobody's standing behind him when the metal finally gives out....

(Havelock Vetinari, Samuel Vimes added for 's pleasure)

Thud mentions that Carrot is 6'- while in Guards Guards he was 6'6".

Ah ok. :shrug: Perhaps a writing mistake or Pratchett just forgot he mentioned it before. He is sick, isn't he?

*calculates* 6'6" suits him better anyway.

That could be an actual scene in the books, right.
Vimes and Angua are certainly thinking "Oh crap, these loose links almost killed the boss", and Carrot must wish he was somewhere else... Vetinari is his usual charming self, well done.
Really funny.

I think Vimes' horrified expression might be my favourite part of this picture. But then again, it might be Vetinari.

Wow. I gotta admit that I thought this was an actual scene from one of Pratchett's books that I hadn't reached yet. The situation and Vetinari's remarks are splendidly in character. Well done!

Now, how would he mange to get in and out of the chainmail if it was that damn tight?
....
Does Carrot's innocence bend space and time or something?
Hmm... Epic drawing BTW

Well, the same way my friend got into his t shirt and then bent over to tie his shoe lace, causing a nice big rip. Stress works in mysterious ways.

An extremely alarming calculation: in Feet of Clay, Carrot is only seventeen?!
from Guards! Guards!: "it is a terrible thing to be nearly sixteen and the wrong species." this was just before he left for Ankh-Morpork.
from Feet of Clay: "It was saying something about Carrot that, even after two years in Ankh-Morpork, he was still uneasy about [the word] 'd*mned.'" at most, he would be eighteen. How old is Angua, do you think?

early 20s. I think it's been mentioned there's a 4-5ish year age gap.

but I would point out men reach their sexual peak at 18, while women at 35....Hee!

there is? I'm reading GG again, but I guess I haven't come across that yet... it didn't seem like there was a gap, but in any case, that number was ridiculous anyways, so I'm kind of relieved...
