Ep 6 of was one I was so excited to write. Through this series we wanted to show how Lyra is made, this is the ep when she becomes valiant. With some sterling support from & others I love how this is about ace kids working it through together.

I would like to understand why you are so carelessly dealing with the daemon-human relationship in the series and taking the depth of the various scenes of interaction between them, especially between Lyra and Pan. I missed the emotional charge of several scenes.

I don't think we are but to explain - and sorry to take the magic out of it - daemons cost a lot, daemons touching humans cost even more. We've tried to make Pan & Lyra true, without having them always in physical contact (as the books do). Sorry you're disappointed.

I don’t think anyone needs constant physical contact - but the aftermath of the attempted intercision felt like a terrible misstep. It felt bizarre that you would choose not to have Lyra desperately clutching on to Pan, and instead make the scene about Lyra and Coulter.

For me, that moment is about Lyra's relationship with her own safety. I think her and Mrs C's relationship is slightly different from the book in the adaptation and I'd say her and Pan are totally on their guard, and so aren't ready for such a release. Sorry it felt bizarre.

I understand the cost of this, but many people can't understand how deep the relationship is without this interaction being greater. But I understand the difficulty of bringing this, thanks for answering me! :)

Hey, at least you're being forthcoming about it.

There’s also something to be said about one and their soul being so connected, visual interaction isn’t necessary—there are other ways to express connection, especially that in ways Lyra and Pan are 2 parts of the same “self.” To me, it showed that they were brave in that moment

You just need to establish that relationship better before we get to Book 3 material, my dude.

I really appreciate your candour here. It's interesting to hear from creators about the compromises that have to be made to bring things to the screen. As we were watching, I said out loud to my family that they had to embrace so I had a real sense of loss when they didn't.

"We've tried to make Pan and & Lyra true" Well, you haven't.

There are so few daemons though, use real animals if you have to.
