    Summary

    Assumption: the act of taking control or assuming authority

    One day they would speak of her in admiring tones. “What a remarkable woman!” some would say. And there would come a time when disdainful whispers would dog her every step like dark spectres. “What sort of a woman would do something like that? She should be ashamed of herself!” they would sneer.

    But who are they to judge her when they don’t even know the half of it?

    How did Marisa Coulter become the woman she was? As these things often do, it starts with an unhappy family. (A look at Marisa’s life before the affair, from childhood to her time at St Sophia’s.)

    NOTE: You don’t have to read Part 1 (Asriel’s backstory) in order to follow the events in this story.

    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.”

    Summary

    “She?” her mother said, and Marisa nodded. If she hadn’t known better, she might have thought that Maman’s eyes had softened. “You had a daughter.”

    “Yes.” Marisa frowned. “You didn’t know?”

    The lizard let out a hiss. “How could I have known? The papers only referred to her as your…” Maman shivered. “…love child, and you did not answer a single one of my letters, nor have you had the decency to come home to Geneva and explain yourself.”

    Summary

    "Where's your mummy?" Marisa asked the girl then, voice measured. "We should get you back to her. I'm sure she's very worried about you."

    For a reason the toddler didn't entirely understand, she let out a cry. It was a frustrated cry, as if to say, "come here right now." She again put her arms out and practically fell onto the blonde-haired woman in her pursuit of Marisa. It was the only thing in the world that seemed to make sense to the child in that moment. It was instinctual, natural, visceral.

    -or-

    Where toddler Lyra wanders over to a barn party her teenage mother Marisa is hosting, feeling connected to the beautiful dark-haired woman in a way she can't quite explain and in a way that makes the woman in question completely melt.
