Just an idea I wanted to jot down before I forgot it.
See, what really makes me love Brent and Lyra is how much they argue like bratty kids, and how bad both of them are at it. It's surprisingly easy to write, because I've never been any good at it. People seem to think that Thistle is the peace-keeper, but really she just takes away a lot of their things. It's easier to keep from fighting about toys when they're up on a high shelf.
