How Do They Rise Up

How Do They Rise Up

Today is the 25th of May. A special day to fans of Terry Pratchett’s ‘Discworld’ series. A day to remember and a day to wear lilac. And a date close enough to that of ‘Not Fade Away’ that it could well have been the night that everything went down. For this fic I’m working on that assumption.

This is the long-promised sequel to The Lonely Goatherd. The first section has been posted as a teaser before, way back on September 7th, under the title of ‘Fading Away’. The title ‘How Do They Rise Up’ is taken from ‘Night Watch’ by Terry Pratchett, and the absence of a question mark is not a typo.

This is not a comedy, and it’s not high on plot. Just a vignette. 3,175 words. Rating R. Warning; character deaths.
