One of the things I like about #HisDarkMaterials is that it keeps the emotions of the characters real. A lot of fantasy adventures have a really strong, brave central character who superhumanly is able to face the dangers without breaking down, including in all those cases when this character is a little girl. That's admirable, but it is also sterile. However Lyra's "Pan, you're making me nervous. Don't let Iorek see me nervous" is such an insight in what it takes to be this brave.
