“When you go out of here, all the particles that make you up will loosen and float apart, just like your daemons did. If you’ve seen people dying, you know what that looks like. But your daemons en’t just nothing now; they’re part of everything. All the atoms that were them, they’ve gone into the air and the wind and the trees and the earth and all the living things. They’ll never vanish. They’re just part of everything. And that’s exactly what’ll happen to you, I swear to you, I promise on my honor. You’ll drift apart, it’s true, but you’ll be out in the open, part of everything alive again.”

I have only been waiting FOUR GODDAMN YEARS!

Thank you everyone who voted and made this day possible. It’s been a beautiful journey, although my (and probably POM’s) bitterness towards Hermione in 2011 was an admittedly dark period. I always knew Lyra would kick MMM ass eventually. And we are finally here to honor her contribution to our childhoods.
