    Summary

    "Are you struggling to make friends, son?” Dad gave him a serious look echoed by Florence. She turned her head to regard him with one large eye.
    Asriel shrugged. “I can make friends easy enough. But sometimes I just like being by myself. Me and Stel.”
    His dæmon understood everything about him without having to explain any of it to her. She never judged him, not really. She was different too. She was fascinated by the same stuff he was, even if no else cared. Making friends wasn’t a necessity when he already had the best possible friend.

    Summary

    "She felt as if her own body wasn't hers anymore; regardless of what the consequences would be to itself, its main focus now was to feed and grow another body. And there was nothing she could do to stop it. No willpower would hold it back. Her body betrayed her."

    At the edge of the abyss, Marisa reflects on motherhood.

    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

    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

    " 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

    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

    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.

    Summary

    A chain of perfectly smooth, milky white pearls softly reflected the light from the naphtha lamps, but as she took a closer look at them, she realised that this wasn’t a necklace at all. No, this was something else entirely and meant to be worn nowhere near the neck. A shiver of excitement ran down her spine and settled as a warm pool in her stomach.

    (Or, a gift, a desk, and lots and lots of smut.)

    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.

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

    Summary

    "You want to be as cold as the steel in this knife. Because if you do that, then nobody can see or guess what's truly inside."

    How fitting it felt, given their dangerous games and barbed exchanges, that all Marisa could think about was how easily that knife could become bloodstained.

    "I would prefer that my willingness to guard myself be compared to something less lethal."

    -----

    Inspired by a prompt on tumblr: Asriel has a nightmare, and Marisa has a funny way of comforting him.

    Summary

    This is a story we all well know but it’s not as it seems. It’s not like the story we know in the way many things are different but how you may ask ? Well what if Lyra knew Asriel was her dad from day 1 but believed her mother died during childbirth. What happens when the day Lyra comes into contact with her mother without even knowing it ?
