“We are all subject to the fates. But we must all act as if we are not, or die of despair…death will sweep through all the worlds; it will be the triumph of despair, forever. The universes will all become nothing more than interlocking machines, blind and empty of thought, feeling, life…”
Another piece that (I hope) will go to my portfolio. I have yet to wait a couple of days to notice more mistakes because even though right now I like it I know I could improve it.
Illustration based on the trilogy “His Dark Materials” by Phillip Pullman and the movie “The Golden Compass”.
Characters Lyra and Pantalaimon belong to P. Pullman, art’s mine.
"We have to be all those difficult things, like cheerful and kind and curious and patient, and we’ve got to study and think and work hard, all of us, in all our different worlds, and then we’ll build.."
Her hands were resting on his glossy fur. Somewhere in the garden a nightingale was singing, and a little breeze touched her hair and stirred the leaves overhead. All the different bells of the city chimed, once each, this one high, that one low, some close by, others farther off, one cracked a peevish, another grave and sonorous, but agreeing in all their different voices on what the time was, even if some of them got to it a little more slowly than others. In that other Oxford where she and Will had kissed good-bye, the bells would be chiming too, and a nightingale would be singing, and a little breeze would be stirring the leaves in the Botanic Garden.
"And then what," said her dæmon sleepily. "Build what?"
"The Republic of Heaven," said Lyra.
Somewhere out there is the origin of all the Dust, all the death, the sin, the misery, the destructiveness in the world. Human beings can’t see anything without wanting to destroy it, Lyra. That’s original sin. And I’m going to destroy it. Death is going to die.

"This is Lyra, the heroine from the ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy written by Philip Pullman. For those who have read it: I imagine this image takes place sometime after the events in third book."
An Alethiometer is a small, gold-coloured, compass-like device that has a single, simple, use: to tell the truth. It can reveal any truth and can answer any question when properly manipulated; the alethiometer harnesses Dust to produce its knowledge. Its name is Aletheia ”truth” + -ometer”measuring device”. The last known owner of such a device was Lyra Silvertongue.
passengers with larger daemons are asked not to travel at peak times where possible and to use the larger outer carriages. people with smaller daemons are asked to exercise caution when in crowded trains. as always please mind the gap.
they say that city daemons are generally smaller, less space you see, but london is a city of immigrants and commuters so you are just as likely to see a dog daemon as you are a lion. cities aren’t built for large daemons, there are crowds and narrow alleys and tubes and trains and buses to navigate but most people don’t let that stop them. there are cars and carriages and buses especially for big daemons and if your daemon is too big even for those well you can always ride them.
