My favorite fiction couple is Sam Vimes and Lady Sybil Vimes from Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels.

Sam's full title is His Grace, His Excellency, The Duke of Ankh; Commander Sir Samuel Vimes. Lady Sybil's full name is Lady Sybil Deidre Olgivanna Vimes (née Ramkin).

Commander Vimes cannot be corrupted. He can't be bribed. He isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he knows when something isn't right, and he picks away at things until he uncovers the truth. He was a drunken disgrace who drank his pay until he cleaned himself up for Lady Sybil.

Lady Sybil is truly proud of Sam, and believes he is capable of anything. As a result, Sam became a better man, lifted up by her belief and support. Lady Sybil is the richest woman in Ankh-Morpork.

Sam also saved Lady Sybil from her reclusive life, spending all her time tending her swamp dragons. She pull him up from the gutter, and he pulled her out of the dragon shed.

Sam and Sybil are perfect for each other. Together, they each became more than they had been alone. To quote Sam, "He couldn't do better, but she couldn't do worse, so maybe it all balances out."

Authors and Publishers who pirate photographs

Copyrights. Authors and publishers expect people to respect their copyrights, and rightfully so. After all, a lot of time, work, and money went into publishing your book. You deserve to be paid for it. Yet from time to time, I see authors and even publishers use watermarked “free sample” stock photos in advertisements on twitter. There is a reason for the watermark. It shows that you have not paid Read more of this blog post »
