Feegle-ese IS partly based on Glaswegian accents...

That’s exactly what Annagramma would do, the nasty little horror.

Even if she picked up that Tiffany was really doing something - which she might, since apart from Tiffany herself I think Annagramma is the young witch in this group with the most raw power/potential...she’s got enough talent to realise that she has it, but not enough to understand why having it is not an invitation to belittle or show off to anyone who doesn’t - Annagramma would behave as though she hadn’t, because she’d hate the idea that someone else could do something powerful or cool that she could not do.

Never underestimate the ingenuity of hungry peasants. Somehow they invented cheese.

Annagramma IS a witch. She can see people clearly (because that’s a witch thing) but hasn’t matured enough or learned enough about witchcraft to turn that pointy perceptiveness on herself as well as on other people.

She also bullies for power, where Granny bullies to get important things done. Both scenarios are unpleasant for the target, but only Granny’s has anything productive or useful or valuable come out afterwards.

I like a lot of this, especially the big clunky slightly too big boots!

The only thing I would change is that Tiffany’s hair is explicitly described as brown when she’s described in Wee Free Men. Maybe lighten the hair a touch, so it’s dark brown (still darker than her skin) instead of black?

Only a very, VERY special girl would go direct to Granny Weatherwax. Esk did way back in Equal Rites, but that was at least half because the added wrinkle of having “Wizard Magic” meant that most witches wouldn’t have known what to do with her. Esk was unique, and dangerous to everyone around her until she learned to control her gifts, so Granny was the only choice.

He can’t possibly misread a pack of nuns and midwives as badly as he misread Jackrum....right?

I can see the connection too.

Also, I would LOVE it if Mark watched at least a bit of the show. I’m not sure HOW he would react, but his reactions would be phenomenal.

Margrat with some of the more obvious “woo” tempered by reality.

Nope, sorry.

It was William Creek, in outback South Australia. About the least Ireland-adjacent place known to mankind.
