It may have been Peter Pevensie and I may have change it to Edmund Pevensie after a while. (not a big fan of Peter anymore lol)

Welcome back to NarniaWeb, PrinceRilian90! :-h Ditto to Jo; it sounds like you'll fit in just fine around here! :)

*goes to grab a couple of those helpful links that she mentioned*

Here is the book discussion thread, and here's the thread for general movie discussion. Since you enjoy being outdoors, you might also like the camping thread!

Best of luck with deciding on your next step with education, and have fun exploring the forum! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

Hi everybody!
I'm NotRoyalStuart
I'm a guy
I'm married, I have a daughter.
I teach Art in middle school.
I found Narniaweb by searching for Narnia groups on google.
I first read the Chronicles of Narnia when I was ten or eleven. That must have been around 1979. There is something very charming, but also deep and profound that keeps me coming back to them. I have read the books many times, listened to them on audiobooks and seen the movies.
My favorite books are the The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Magician's Nephew, and the Last Battle.
I'm an artist and also an American Civil War reenactor. I love art by the Pre-Raphaelites, the Arts and Crafts movement, an Art Nouveau. The Dawn Treader film, although, sadly deviating from Lewis' novel, did have some great set art. The ship, Dawn Treader was an increadible work of Art Nouveau design. If you like the look of that kind of thing look up the artists, Emil Galle, Victor Horta, Edward Burne Jones, and William Morris.

Welcome to NarniaWeb, NotRoyalStuart! :-h I like your username; it's fun!

The combination of the charm and incredible depth of The Chronicles of Narnia has made me an enduring fan as well. It's very cool that you are a Civil War reenactor and an artist! (I also thought the ship in VDT was amazing. One of the few things that I really liked about that film!) In the past, we've had a thread for artists and artwork, as well as a thread for history buffs, but both are locked at the moment. I think the mods would re-open them if there's interest, though!

Have fun exploring the forum, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask! :)

Hey everyone, just joined. Read all the books and fell in love with them and that led me to watching the The Lion, With, and the Wardrobe which was fantastic. I then quickly wanted to watch the Prince Caspian and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader which I also really enjoyed a lot. My favorite character from the books and movie is Mr. Tumnus.

Other things I enjoy are Dancing(Ballet, Jazz, and Modern) and Music(Halsey, Flume, and Ariana Grande and also hanging at the Beach). I am a Junior in High School.

Welcome to NarniaWeb, HazyHays! :-h

I'm glad you enjoyed the books and films so much! It's very cool that you're a dancer... sounds like you'd be right at home dancing with the fauns and dryads in Narnian summertime. :) Since you enjoy listening to music, you might enjoy this thread here in the Spare Oom. It's a place to discuss your favorite music!

If you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask! Have a blast exploring the forum! :D

Hi Hays, welcome! Perhaps you have friends who are keen on Narnia too, who you might introduce?
Glad to hear that your favourite character is Tumnus - he is one of my favourites too.

Thanks for the welcome coracle. I will ask them, but most are more into Harry Potter than Narnia. Go figure. I mean I like Harry Potter and everything, but it is not Narnia.

1. Name (please avoid your real full name): My internet name is withyouinrockland from the famous poem HOWL

2. King or Queen of Narnia (guy or girl): Queen

3. Family (single/married/kids):Single

4. Occupation: Well, I'm a freshman in highschool, so I spend a lot of time studying. In my free time, my best friend, her dogs, and I go off exploring. I live in a pretty remote area, so its always fun. I'm also varsity on the highschool cross country team, and I practice every day with said a different friend(best friend isn't in varsity :() I like to do a LOT of other things too, so I won't continue to bore you :).
5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: Best friend ( Sydney is her name) Recommended the books to me after completing a dare. If you don't want the funny story, skip the following paragraph.
We were investigating a recently logged site. It was so recent, they had not taken away the logs. It was well known that there was a bee tree in those parts. We knew where the bee tree was, because we explored there often.
"hey, I dare you to go see if the bees are gone from the bee tree."
"Why?"
"Well, I don't think they took the honey with them."
She turns and runs for the bee tree, yelling "For Narnia, and for Aslan!!!"
I asked her what Narnia, and Aslan was. she let me borrow her books. I read The Magicians Nephew, and really liked it. so, I googled "Narnia" to see how many movies were out. This came up. :)

6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: I'm currently reading them.
7. How many times have you read the Chronicles: I haven't read them all yet.

8. Favorite of the Chronicles: Okay, I will admit, I read the last page of The Last Battle. Can't wait!

9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: Listed that in occupation. I love all animals, but that's not interesting.
