Lyra's Oxford

Set in the Oxford of His Dark Materials, after the events of that books have taken place. It's a little fluffy piece, but doesn't take too long to read, so it's not a waste of time.

"But it feels like it," Pan said. "It feels as if the whole city's looking after us. So what we feel is part of the meaning, isn't it?"
"Yes! It is. It must be. Not the whole of it, and there's a lot more we don't even know is there, probably... Like all those meanings in the alethiometer, he ones we have to go deep down to find. Things you never suspect. But that's part of it, no question."
The city, their city---
belonging was one of the meanings of that, and protection, and home.
