I always find it funny when books like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson get crap for being ‘witchcraft’ and ‘anti-christian’ but you know who no one ever talks about? Phillip Pullman and his masterpiece His Dark Materials trilogy. Some of you may recognize the first book’s title, The Golden Compass from the awful movie adaption, but seriously those books are so so good and full of badass witches rebelling against the vadican for mutilating children, gay ass angels who join the rebellion so they can be free to love each other, an ex nun who escapes the oppression of the church to pursue a life of science, a little girl who is so good at manipulating she overthrows an entire empire in one day, and a 12 year old boy who murders god with a knife

Cleaned it at last ! It’s ruff but this is a sketch page I drew as I was finishing the first book of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. I had to post it, because re-reading the books was SO great ! I knew I already loved it as a child and would understand it a lot better now, but I didn’t expected to love it that much !!
I took the complete three volumes for my one month internship in this tiny-village-with-nothing, and ended reading all of it in almost one week ! (That’s an awful lot of pages.) I can only recommend the series, and  would totally make a badass animated TV show out of it.

Ps - If you’ve read it, you cannot forget Him. Yeah and that’s tiny Lyra and big Iorek :3

Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman

It was such a strange tormenting feeling when your daemon was pulling at the link between you; part physical pain deep in the chest, part intense sadness and love. Everyone tested it when they were growing up: seeing how far they could pull apart, coming back with intense relief.

I say I want you inside me and you split me open with a knife.”

30 day AU challenge: 17. Plot of your favourite book

Day 1 - Day 16 - Day 18

“What I thought was that if you—maybe just once a year—if we could come here at the same time, just for an hour or something, then we could pretend we were close again—because we would be close, if you sat here and I sat just here in my world…"

“Yes, as long as I live, I’ll come back. Wherever I am in the world, I’ll come back here—”

“On Midsummer Day, at midday. As long as I live.”

"And if we—later on— if we meet someone that we like, and if we marry them, then we must be good to them, and not make comparisons all the time and wish we were married to each other instead… But just keep up this coming here once a year, just for an hour, just to be together…”

“I will love you forever, whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again…”

“And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one will ever tear us apart. Every atom of me and every atom of you…”

*Phillip Pullman, His Dark Materials

I love His Dark Materials so much! I can’t wait to read the continuation <3  It’s one of the most beautiful stories and that damned last bit always makes me cry uncontrollably. I just can’t deal with the angst. I couldn’t decide which part of this conversation is more beautiful (meaning: makes me cry harder) so I’ve put both. I am literally in tears as I am writing this, omg…

I could really go for HDM AU that doesn’t necessarily follow the plot. Kingsman with daemons and witches and armoured bears I mean… I need it. Imagine last Kingsman test would be to go through Separation with their daemons… I have so many headcanons for that haha. I would love to make sense out of all of them one day.

Also, my cintiq is making me so angry recently. The colours are so messed up?? I have to balance them out on another screen and they are never correct. I’m so fed up with my art looking like poop after so much work ;__;
