Notes and Reflections on Books and Media

by Hannah Leitheiser

Nothing Special






'But suppose that hadn’t happened. Suppose she’d stayed [in human-land]. Grown up with her human parents, attended school – she’d probably still be attending school now, actually – and lived out her whole life as a human in Philadelphia

She probably would have ended up like the rest of her family. Fascinated by magic, and dragons, and… unicorns. Completely ignorant of how great this world was by comparison. Most of the unicorns Lyra knew weren’t very interesting, anyway. She’d had a few friends in Equestria… Not like here, though. Even if she’d left behind her human friends in Des Moines, she could meet more here in Philadelphia easily enough.' - Anthropology by JasonTheHuman
