    Summary

    Unexpectedly on a beautiful evening in Svalbard, when Lord Asriel is going about his daily chores, he hears footsteps and suddenly sees his lover Marisa Coulter in front of him, but she is not alone.

    She has her daughter with her but the girl is sick and needs her parents now more than ever before, who have to learn what they never wanted to learn, to be parents.

    Both of them go on a journey with their daughter that not only takes them back home, but also into a world of myths and legends while trying to protect their child from the Magisterium and possibly from their own family.

    But both parents also have to cope with the fact that they cannot be sure whether they can trust each other completely

    Summary

    "I'd thank you to stop insulting my intelligence. What's the real reason for wanting me kept from wandering around the college?"

    The Master opens his mouth to answer, but Stelmaria suddenly turns her head towards the corridor, her nose twitching at the catching of a new scent, and a low rumble leaves her chest.

    "Asriel… she's here."

    Summary

    The universe works in ways that even physics cannot explain, sometimes things happen by chance, with no time or date, just coincidence. Scholars like Marisa Coulter would never call that fate, not when the chances of something happening are one in a million.
    But there, completely lost in thoughts and feelings, she wonders about what are the chances of her ex lover and the daughter she abandoned being in the same building as her?!
    She would say none if she wasn't looking at the two faces that she tried to forget for 12 years.

     

     

     

    A look at what would have happened if Edward never found out about the baby and Asriel had the chance to raise Lyra.

    Summary

    Lyra didn’t make it to the Retiring Room in time to warn Lord Asriel about the Tokay. As a result, Mrs. Coulter came to Jordan College much quicker than she’d anticipated, before whispers of the Gobblers had reached the city of Oxford. Together, the two start a new life in London, while tensions are still rising across the North.

    Summary

    " You know, sitting alone in a darkened room playing chess with a ghost isn't what you should be doing at eleven year's old." Asriel remarks at some point, not lifting his gaze from his black pawns.
    (She has always thought she has a better chance with the white ones)
    " Being a dead man trying to cheat your way out of a chess game with your only daughter isn't giving you much credit either." she shots back, eyelashes barely fluttering. Her chestnut brown hair has been plated into a crown braid by the morning maid and she is sporting a lovely summer dress that matches her eyes exactly.
    (Look at young Lyra, she truly is her mother's mirror image, isn't she?)

    Summary

    Father seems to wage war with himself for a very long time, Stelmaria staring unblinkingly outside the window as though she is resigning herself into something. Pan looks remorseful for upsetting her so much, she has always been his weakness, but this time her little leopard cub will have golden freckles, he can never be rid of half of who he is, the parts of the monkey gleam true and bright.
    (Does Asriel love her despite who birthed her, or because of it? Is it possible to adore the daughter but hate her mother, or are the two so irreversibly tight-woven together that one can't exist without the other? Deep down, he knows the answer. Lyra could never be another woman's daughter)
    In the end, Lyra gets her cherry blossom tree, she plans on watching it grow as she rans through a door painted blue.
    If only she had more time.

    Summary

    She frowned. “Mother always tells me that I’m not ladylike at all.”

    “And what do I always tell you?”

    “That being ladylike is for vapid women who lack ambition,” she parroted.

    “Exactly,” Father said. Lyra grinned, and Pantalaimon became a coral snake on her shoulder, his belly an electric blue and his head a fiery orange, like the tip of a match. “And while your mother may pretend well,” Father continued, the corner of his lip quirking up, “don’t forget that she’s no lady either.” He turned back to his book. “Now run along.”

    (The world in which Marisa and Asriel choose each other in the wake of the murder, take Lyra, and run.)

    Summary

    The rest of the night flies by in a whirlwind of emotion and color. Brief moments flash across Asriel's vision- a bottle of Mulberry wine the color of Marisa's lipstick, shaking Tully's hand as the man agrees to sponsor his upcoming trip to the South, Lyra gaining a cream moustache as she gorges on her apple pie, a glimpse of golden fur tugging at silver. Finally, Lyra's eyes begin to droop, her chin balanced on her palms as she struggles to stay awake, the adrenaline wearing off as the excitement of the day finally catches up to her. Making his excuses hastily, Asriel picks her up and lays her on his torso, her hair tickling his chin, her even breaths rumbling across his chest. Out of the corner of his eye, he knows Marisa and the monkey are watching.
    (Stelmaria has Pan between her jaws, a little leopard cub, silver and black.)
    In another life, he could have been red and gold.

    Summary

    “My father is a hero,” Lyra speaks to the children of the Fens, telling stories of a man she barely ever sees, sunken in the image of a man who radiates passion, the girl ever cast in the shadow of his importance and neglect.

     

    Quick glances at Lyra's relationship with Asriel throughout the years. Slightly canon divergent towards the end.

    Summary

    “All’s well with the child too, my lord,” she said, and he nodded, still rendered mute by that angry little brow. “Strong lungs – came out making a right racket, I tell you, the both of them yelling as she marched into the world – ”

    “She?” he said. Stelmaria was on her feet, inching closer to the sofa, peering at the baby with wide, curious eyes.

    Mrs Costa gave him a tired smile. “Yes, sir. A healthy baby girl. D’you want to – ?”

    (Every time Lord Asriel sees his daughter.)

    Summary

    At twenty years old, Lyra is no longer protected by the virtue of scholastic sanctuary, and the Magisterium's antagonism towards her is hardly veiled anymore. Her life is openly in danger, and with new mysteries that seem to emerge out of nowhere, she discovers that her days of investigating Dust and the taboos of experimental theology are far from over.

    And to make things more complicated, the last person she expected to see again has returned to Jordan College.

    Summary

    “This is ridiculous,” she muttered. “A spattering of rain and the city shuts down. There must be at least one pilot bold enough to fly in this weather, and I’ll just have to find him – ” Then she broke off with a gasp, doubling over, one hand reaching out for something solid to grab. The only thing close enough was Asriel, and he lurched forwards, supporting her forearm with one hand and placing the other on her shoulder as she shuddered.

    His mouth went dry. “Marisa…”

    She was breathing heavily. “I’m quite alright,” she forced out. “A twinge, that’s all, no cause for concern. It’s been happening all day, you know, and it always passes after a minute or two…” She tailed off then, her hand coming to cover her mouth as she craned her neck up and met his gaze. His eyes were wide.

    “Oh,” she said, glancing back at her stomach. “Oh. Oh dear.”

    (With Marisa and Asriel sheltering in place due to a thunderstorm, Lyra decides to make her grand entrance into the world.)
