My beautiful daemon

Is this not one of the most beautiful things you've ever seen? I was just looking up some fox images on google to see what their eyes look like (yellow, with feline vertical pupils) for a new character in Silksinger, and I found this. This is my daemon. I'm naming him. . . hm. I was going to say Ezmeril, which is the new character's name, but she's a she, and my daemon would of course have to be a he. So I'm going to say Jagjabal, which is the name of a not-nice character in Silksinger, one with lots of legs, but I dig the name. It is a bit wicked-sounding, but who's to say my daemon wouldn't be a bit wicked? Who's to say I am not a bit wicked? If you don't know what I'm talking about when I say "daemon," then get yourself HERE immediately -- IMMEDIATELY, I say -- and order this book and read it. Sheesh. Where have you been since 1995???

And on that subject, swoony swoon, check out this trailer for the movie:

Oh. my. god. Can't wait!!!
(Yes, I think the snow leopard is a good daemon for Daniel Craig!)

What's your daemon?

Here are some more fox pictures, just because they're so awesome:

Oh my goodness - I'm heading to the bookstore tomorrow! Positively drooling now. And sign me up for Sam Eliot - LOVE!

I'm reading a novel right now that you might enjoy (sorry, it's adult fantasy fiction). It's called Widdershins by Charles de Lint and there's all kinds of fairies, bogans, green-brees and many other wonderous characters. I'm totally immersed in it!

Uhhhh EXCUSE me??? I was right there when you took your daemon test and your daemon was hardly determined to be anything like these beautiful critters you have posted yesterday.Your daemon was, in fact, a possum. And that is exactly what I am getting you for your birthday this year.

Foxes are magical!

I hope your furnace is fixed and you're cozy and warm.

I can't wait for this one, either. I still want to read the book first - so I guess I better hurry up and buy it soon.
Do you choose your daemon or does your daemon choose you? Can it shapeshift? That would come in especially handy...
