greetings.

I just joined this community as of two seconds ago, so I wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I first began my torrid love affair with His Dark Materials about five years ago and have been actively drawing as many people to our camp as possible. I wrote my senior thesis (Falling into Experience: Growing up in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials) about the themes of innocence and experience in the books, so I guess you could say I've devoted a lot of time to them.

Anyways, just wanted to say hello and all that :)

I envy you for you have spent so much time analysing His Dark Materials. I have read the books many times, but I feel that there is so much I overlook each time from just reading them as novels rather than for academics.

Anyway, hi and welcome! :-) *waves*
Thanks! It was a pretty great experience...meltdown inducing, sure, but I got to write about something I was passionate about and create something I was proud of in the long run.
And you probably gained encyclopedic knowledge of HDM as a result as well!

Hope you don't mind if I add you as a friend :-)
