Philip Pullman fans: did you know there’s an awesome wedding reading hidden in The Amber Spyglass from His Dark Materials series? Yep, a fantasy wedding reading right smack dab in your fiction. Not shocking considering all the amazing readings we’ve spied in literature.
But this one is pretty special. It’s got atoms creating new atoms and light in sunbeams and dragonflies and pine trees and ohmyglob someone use this reading in their ceremony! Want to hear it? Let’s go…
“I will love you forever; whatever happens. Till I die and after I die, and when I find my way out of the land of the dead, I’ll drift about forever, all my atoms, till I find you again… I’ll be looking for you, every moment, every single moment. And when we do find each other again, we’ll cling together so tight that nothing and no one’ll ever tear us apart.
Every atom of me and every atom of you… We’ll live in birds and flowers and dragonflies and pine trees and in clouds and in those little specks of light you see floating in sunbeams… And when they use our atoms to make new lives, they won’t just be able to take one, they’ll have to take two, one of you and one of me.”
