The Discworld is the setting of a series of fantasy novels written by Terry Pratchett. The Discworld novels are noteworthy in that they parody many conventional fantasy elements, while retaining an affectionate stance toward the genre as a whole.
Fannish engagement in fanfiction tends to be either with the Watch (a.k.a. the City Watch), the local police force in Ankh-Morpork, or the Witches, an informal and acephalous (Granny Weatherwax would never permit anyone to be the leader of the witches) sisterhood, although of course other characters also get fannish attention. Crossovers in which characters from other fandoms meet Death are also fairly popular.
