In "Numbers Thursday" on 31st March, I asked which literary characters you would most like to punch in the face. One of my awesome blog followers, (Algernon, you star!) wrote the following:
I just wish to thump Lyra Silvertongue, from His Dark Materials. There is just something about how useless she is in everything, and yet apparently is so important. Luckily she does have Pan.
Now, I LOVE the daemons in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. This comment got me thinking about them and my question to you is this:
If you had a daemon, what would it be and why?
I guess some of you won't know what I mean by this so, in short, a daemon is an animal which is like the external, physical incarnation of your soul. The animal you choose should be a reflection of your personality. Try to be as honest as you can. You may want to be a lion, but are you really a weasel?
Comments please :)
