@StApolloandCleo I think it’s partially that Pan wants to take a more active part of Lyra’s life than what I feel the society expects of dæmons. Adults’ dæmons rarely do much in public, while Pan missed their childhood when they didn’t care and did what they felt like doing.

@StApolloandCleo Pan and Lyra being different used to be their strong point. They always seemed to be more independent than usual with dæmons, but used that to their advantage. Now Lyra has changed, but Pan is still stuck in the past (in a positive way).

@StSophiaCollege Trying to not get too much ahead, at this point (and a bit later) I feel most sorry for Pan. He has good reasons for being angry with Lyra. (As an aside, when writing dæmon I always forget I have the letter æ on my keyboard. I have no excuses when I end up writing daemon instead)

@StSophiaCollege … at least some years ago. Pan was always the cautious, but he tries to be brave since Lyra isn’t on his side. Sad thing is that they quarrel about unnecessary stuff that Lyra really would agree with if they had managed to discuss it in a calm and respectful way.

@StSophiaCollege It’s interesting how the book has two storylines, Lyra/Pan and this man and such. Pan wants to find out what it’s about, but his relationship to Lyra makes that hard. Doing stuff himself is a bit hard when you’re a dæmon. I feel like he does what Lyra would have done, …

@StSophiaCollege I’m very glad I read Serpentine before TSC, since that fits nicely into this part of the story. Still, very melancholic indeed. My thoughts is that they never really digested all they had been through, and them trying to just move on gradually led them apart. They need to talk.

@TheOwlLibrary @PhilipPullman Using books as a means to experiment with ideas, opinions, philosophy, and play with the way people extract meaning out of books is very genious, and I can’t wait to see how that will develop. I expect it to be a part of how everything ties well together in the final book.

@TheOwlLibrary @PhilipPullman Happiness in a story is a balance, though I think TSC did pretty well. I do *want* Lyra &co to be happy, but that doesn’t make it best story or the right solution. TSC doesn’t exactly have many bright spots that bode well for the future, but I did enjoy the philosophical elements
