When that was done, she sat next to Iorek Byrnison as he gnawed a haunch of reindeer that was frozen as hard as wood.
“Iorek,” she said, “is it hard not having a daemon? Don’t you get lonely?”
“Lonely?” he said. “I don’t know. They tell me this is cold. I don’t  know what cold is, because I don’t freeze. So I don’t know what lonely  means either. Bears are made to be solitary.”
“What about the Svalbard bears?” she said. “There’s thousands of them, en’t there? That’s what I heard.”
He said nothing, but ripped the joint in half with a sound like a splitting log.

I’ve been looking for an excuse to draw an armored bear for a while and this week’s Illustration Friday word, Brigade, gave me an excuse! I really liked The Golden Compass and wish they would continue with the movie series. I’m going to play around with some fanart for the rest of the month so be prepared!

Then girl and daemon looked up at the solitary bear. He had no  daemon. He was alone, always alone. She felt such a stir of pity and  gentleness for him that she almost reached out to touch his matted pelt,  and only a sense of courtesy toward those cold ferocious eyes prevented  her.
“Iorek Byrnison,” she said.
“Well?”
“Lord Faa and Farder Coram have gone to try and get your armor for you.”
He didn’t move or speak. It was clear what he thought of their chances.
“I know where it is, though,” she said, “and if I told you, maybe you could get it by yourself, I don’t know.”
“How do you know where it is?”
“I got a symbol reader. I think I ought to tell you, Iorek Byrnison,  seeing as they tricked you out of it in the first place. I don’t think  that’s right. They shouldn’t’ve done that. Lord Faa’s going to argue  with the sysselman, but probably they won’t let you have it whatever he  says. So if I tell you, will you come with us and help rescue the kids  from Bolvangar?”
“Yes.”
“I…” She didn’t mean to be nosy, but she couldn’t help being curious.  She said, “Why don’t you just make some more armor out of this metal  here, Iorek Byrnison?”
“Because it’s worthless. Look,” he said, and, lifting the engine  cover with one paw, he extended a claw on the other hand and ripped  right through it like a can opener. “My armor is made of sky iron, made  for me. A bear’s armor is his soul, just as your daemon is your soul.  You might as well take him away” - indicating Pantalaimon - ”and replace  him with a doll full of sawdust. That is the difference. Now, where is  my armor?”
“Listen, you got to promise not to take vengeance. They done wrong taking it, but you just got to put up with that.”
“All right. No vengeance afterwards. But no holding back as I take it, either. If they fight, they die.”
“It’s hidden in the cellar of the priest’s house,” she told him. “He  thinks there’s a spirit in it, and he’s been a trying to conjure it out.  But that’s where it is.”
He stood high up on his hind legs and looked west, so that the last  of the sun colored his face a creamy brilliant yellow white amid the  gloom. She could feel the power of the great creature coming off him  like waves of heat.
“I must work till sunset,” he said. “I gave my word this morning to the master here. I still owe a few minutes’ work.”
“The sun’s set where I am,” she pointed out, because from her point  of view it had vanished behind the rocky headland to the southwest.
He dropped to all fours.
“It’s true,” he said, with his face now in shadow like hers. “What’s your name, child?”
“Lyra Belacqua.”
“Then I owe you a debt, Lyra Belacqua,” he said.

love love love:

♥ Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials;
♥ Margaret Atwood (especially the Mad Adam series & The Handmaid's Tale);
♥ The Hunger Games;
♥ The X-Files;
♥ (Mostly) everything Joss Whedon; and
♥ Unicorns, narwhals, time travel & zombies (not necessarily in that order).

Also, I'd rather pretend that season 6 of Lost never happened, and that Alias ended with the 2003 Superbowl episode.
