1. Name (please avoid your real full name): Mrs Smooshy but you can call me Smooshy or Smoosh or Smo or crazy :D
2. King or Queen of Narnia (guy or girl): Queen
3. Family (single/married/kids): Married for 9 years with 2 kids. The oldest may be close to being ready for Narnia. We'll see.
4. Occupation: Housewife/Stay-at-Home mother; resident know-it-all (don't worry, I'm actually rather nice)
5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: Oh gosh, I forget how I stumbled across it. I was on the original boards about a year before LWW came out. I posted a lot back in the day but my old email address is dead and buried so need a new account
6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: I'm guessing around 7 or 8. Maybe 7 if I got the books the Christmas before my 8th birthday.
7. How many times have you read the Chronicles: I read them over and over as a child and a few times as an adult. At least a dozen times over all, I guess.
8. Favorite of the Chronicles: Probably Voyage of the Dawn Treader or The Silver Chair. Which is funny as I hated The Silver Chair as a kid. Any story about being lost underground made me feel so anxious that I just hated them full stop. However, The Magician's Nephew will always be my least favourite though Uncle Andrew has grown on me a bit.

EDITED TO ADD: Almost forgot about my "interesting things" 8-}

9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you:
Like many here, I do like to read but I also love to "Netflix and chill" and watch political opinion videos on YouTube plus sermons. I like board games -- especially the kind I win at --and playing with my kids. I love to buy them toys I secretly want to play with myself. LOL I used to write but now I mainly help my husband with his writing hobby. He has better ideas than I do but I think my writing style is a bit better. We've made a few attempts at getting certain projects published with no real luck (just some questionable self-publishing companies) so it's really just a hobby at this point.

A little belated, but welcome back, Mrs Smooshy! :-h It's like they say—once a king or queen of NarniaWeb, always a king or queen. :) I've enjoyed reading your posts around the forum so far!

So neat that you and your husband are collaborating on writing! Whenever I've collaborated with other people on creative endeavors (with stories, roleplays, et cetera) it always seems to have a synergistic effect. I think it's because it helps to have another party reign in my ideas. ;)) Anyway, you might enjoy checking out the writing thread here in the Spare Oom, or the Flash Fiction challenges in Ditto Town... the latest one recently wrapped up, but there's sure to be another one soon. :)

Have fun rediscovering the community and all of its discussion! :D

Thanks. I am very shy about my own writing which is probably why I prefer editing. Though I do get posessive over my husband's creations. He will suddenly change where he wants to take a character and I will get huffy and say "they would never do that!" ;)) I would be the perfect 'ghost writer'. No glory for me, please. Just the phrase "book tour" would send me into a fit of spasms. Ha ha But only cross bridges as we come to them.

2. King or Queen of Narnia (guy or girl): Queen
3. Family (single/married/kids): Single

5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: I was searching around on the internet for some good old Narnia stuff and found the site.

That's all I suppose.
Hope you're having a great day!

Welcome to NarniaWeb forums, glimfeather46! :-h Glad to have you here. It's neat that you work on a ranch. I used to ride horses and I'm a little bit envious! (Although I've heard there's a lot of riding the fence line with ranch work and that that can get kind of monotonous. ;)))

We have a thread for musicians here in the Spare Oom if you'd like to share some of your compositions! We also have a thread devoted to theater discussion as well if you'd like to check that out.

Hope you're having a great day, too! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Have fun exploring the forum! :)

Hi glimfeather46, and welcome to NarniaWeb! Rose covered some good stuff in relation to your interesting interests, so I'll just add a :-h from me. Glad you're here. :)

Yes, isn't music amazing?! Do you play any instruments?

1. Name (please avoid your real full name): QueenLucyTheValiant15
2. King or Queen of Narnia (guy or girl): Queen
3. Family (single/married/kids): I am a kid.
4. Occupation: Student, unfortunatly. If I weren't, I could read more books...
5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: I was looking at costume ideas when I stumbled across costumes.narniaweb.com and read it was just a smaller part of narniaweb.com. (When I read the date, I realized, as usual, I was a bit late.)
6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: 14. I actually only just got around to reading them. I watched the movies first, which is a little odd for me. It's also probably one of the only reasons I like them so much.
7. How many times have you read the Chronicles: Just once, but I do plan to read them again.
8. Favorite of the Chronicles: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Last Battle.
9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: I love reading, drawing, and singing, along with playing my violin (not that I practice like I should...).
Yep, that's me!

Welcome to Narniaweb, QueenLucyTheValiant15! As a student myself, I completely understand not being able to read more. Too much school-related reading sadly.

I like drawing, reading, and singing too! What sort of books do you like to read (when you can find the time ;) ) ?

Also, I like your avatar! Did you draw it?
My lovely avatar was made by Valia!

I love Percy Jackson, Fablehaven, The Unwanteds, The Land of Stories, and Warriors. I basicly read anything I can get my hands on.

As for my avatar, yes, I drew it. It's actually one smaller picture on a folder I'm decorating. When I'm done, I'll try to post a picture. :)

Are you a Whovian, SummerSnow? Just noting what it says under "location"...

I second Summer's welcome to NarniaWeb, QueenLucyTheValiant15! :) And, oooh, you play the violin? Very nice! Do you take lessons, or are you learning on your own?

I do take lessons. I'm also in orchestra at school. It is very fun to learn pieces on my own, though.

Ahh, being part of a band, orchestra, or choir is such excellent experience. Enjoy! :)

I very much agree. In fact, I'm currently in both choir and orchestra.

Hi Everyone!

I'm new here, but actually I had an account on here long ago! Unfortunately forgot my account info, so just starting a new one :) Haven't been on these forms in years, and I hadn't read the books or watched the films in awhile as well. But I recently read all the books and that revived my interest.

Few things about me: I read LWW in elementary school (think it was 5th grade), the spring before the movie came out. I was absolutely enchanted. The book sparked my imagination, and got me interested in writing my own stories. I awaited the LWW movie with intense anticipation (seriously, I don't think I've ever been that eager for a film since), and enjoyed it. I also enjoyed PC, although maybe a tad less. (I actually think it was an equally good film, but I don't like the PC story as much).

Mainly joined the forms so I could discuss SC news, although unfortunately there doesn't seem to me much in the intervening years since I've stopped visiting the forms :(

Welcome back, Valiant_Nymph!

I hope you enjoy the information we do have on Silver Chair, and continue to be a keen poster.

Have you seen our newer podcasts? You might like to go back a few months and see what the topics have covered.
