Zoicite☆For all I carry are murdered

Well I finished the "His Dark Materials" trilogy, and I have to say that it was truly a brilliant series. I have no true affinity for the christian religion (all thanks to it's people) but while it was a phenomenal book I definitely came away with some interesting things to ponder (of which I'm not going to share here since I never really cared to get into discussions and/or arguments about philosophy or religion.. you believe what you believe, and I believe what I believe.. end of story, best way to live)

But Lyra and Will. G'uh, I can't quite portray my love for those two without suitably spoiling everything. Yes, I liked the canonically gay angels (and mad props to Phillip Pullman for putting them in) but the third book made me realize that.. 'no, this is definitely -not- a children's book'. I was listening to this while I was working down the grocery aisle, and I just started to cry.. and everyone in grocery thought I was silly.

MY SLASHDAR IS TINGLING. Canonically gay angels you say? O:

I am rather intrigued with reading more book series and I definitely think I'll be checking this out. I'm a Catholic but I seem to have missed the memo on the being devout part. I just believe.

I am starting to think that no fandom is safe from me.

OH YES, there is no hiding the gayness of these angels, granted they only appear in the Amber Spyglass but honestly there is no doubt that they are gay for each other, NONE. I think that you'd enjoy it!

The angels were so my favorite part of The Amber Spyglass.

My favorite part was Lyra and Will.. but only because I just was a sucker for them ever since they first met each other in Gittigazi. But yes, the gay angels were certainly EPIC!

Will and Lyra are like, my 4th grade OTP.

Ahaha, they are like my all the time OTP right now, so fricking adorable. ♥

mmm, pretty Eshild icon.

I'm somewhere in the Amber Spyglass. I need to relocate the book... Will get on that after I finish Stone of Tears, LOL.

<32 Lyra and Will also.

Ahahaha thank you! You know, I think that Lyra and Will definitely resemble Eshild and Leo in a way. I mean just their personalities. which is probably why I used the Eshild icon in the first place.

Oooh, I never thought of that! Lyra definitely shares Eshild's just go and don't think of the consequences later attitude.

And Leo is like "DUTIES FIRST, QUESTIONS LATER" and the whole thing about their two worlds not connecting and right now (damn paused manga), Leo and Eshild's world does not connect very much at all. And really they meet for only hours at a time. The two relationships are VERY similar fi you think about it.

*cries* I need volume 32 like NOW and if Leo and Eshild aren't together by the last page of the volume, there will be STRONG WORDS.

Hello, new friend! :D

~His Dark Materials sounds very interesting! I'll have to look into it sometime. :)

How is it that you can post two icons?

Oh I just usually link an icon from my IJ account. That's about it, I use the img src tag to do it. Because sometimes the icon I want to use isn't really ON this account.

I was just curious! Still learning my way around here.


but Lyra and Will broke my heart /SOB
my sister was so surprised to find me crying like there was no tomorrow ;____;

Yeah, you know my mind kept going "IT WILL BE ALRIGHT, THEY WILL FIND A WAY" but alas.. no, it was not meant to be.

And here i thought it was meant to be a children's book, sigh. I can't get over how sad it is that they can only sit on the same bench and try to feel each other ):

I loved this trilogy so very much. The angels were great and love Lyra/Will also <3 I'm always excited to find people who loved the books too. And yes. It's definitely not an overly child friendly series. Which is wierd because that's the aim but.. *shrug*
