I bet there would be lots of stereotypes and discrimination against certain daemon forms.
How on earth do you pronounce Æsahættr?!
One of the things I liked about Lyra the most was how she was such a good liar, because it made me think about the imagination that little girl had plus the guts to actually lie to everyone.
Would the daemons of identical twins settle as the same form? How about the ones of conjoined twins?
My daemon would be a wolf-like dog, and his name would be Kyros.
Even though the characters in His Dark Materials are given fairly vague descriptions with only a few solid traits, I love the idea of exploring and experimenting around with what the characters look like based on what the readers perceive them to be, there’s just so many different possibilities to come up with!
I wish the books would’ve gone more into detail about what the lives of Baruch and Balthamos were like; they were such an interesting pair and I feel like they deserved to have a more significant role in the story.
I was so glad when Will took Roger’s place. I found Roger annoying and childish, and I loved how Will allowed Lyra to grow stronger.
I love Mulefa so much. That’s how humanity should be… in balance with the natural world.
My best friend absolutely hates HDM but only read TGC back when she was a kid. She told me she didn’t like it because it “had a polar bear on the cover.” I wish I could change her mind but she won’t even let me talk about the books without shutting me down.
