What book's storyline would you experience?

Postby SilverSea » Feb 10, 2015 8:10 pm

If you were to experience one of the books storyline's from the POV of the main characters, what book would it be?

Would you like to experience the death of Charn and the creation of Narnia like Diggory and Polly? Would you sail the Dawn Treader and explore all of the islands and reach the World's End like Lucy, Edmund, and Eustace did?

I think I would like to experience Lucy's first discovery of Narnia! I always loved that part in the book (and movie). I think it would be great to experience that awe and wonder from finding snow in the back of a wardrobe ;) And of course, seeing the lamppost, meeting Mr. Tumnus, having tea with Mr. Tumnus...ahhh it would be great :D

The time when Lucy went to find the spell book in the Magician's mansion. I like anything mysterious which is why I chose this scene from the book.

I would definitely want to experience the Voyage of the Dawn Treader sailing in too the unknown and seeing the things at the end of the world would be truely amazing.

Difficult choice. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is tempting but I have a bit of a phobia concerning boats - not quite as bad as Eustace (the Isle of Wight ferry is no problem at all) but weeks or even months on a sailing ship would be a bit much. The Magician's Nephew... I'd be fascinated with all the inter-dimensional travel, plus the creation of a world. Maybe I'd be a bit too much like Uncle Andrew for my own good. The Last Battle - experiencing travelling into ever-more-real Narnias would be mind-blowing.

But I think I'll go for The Horse And His Boy. Difficult, dangerous, but the rewards so much outweigh the hardships.

Much as I would like the VDT storyline, having actually seen that lovely boat, which was used in Walden's filming, and stood on its deck, I really would prefer the storyline of HHB.

Spending time with a horse that could talk, or even any animal that could talk, though I might not always like what I hear. Riding to Tashbaan and beyond on a mission, across the desert, to be received by King Lune as a most appropriate and worthy messenger whose message saves the day. And most of all, to meet Aslan on the mountain top in that wonderful scene where he proclaims that he was with Shasta all along. And Aravis as well.
William the First was the first of our kings, not counting Ethelreds, Egberts and things.
And he had himself, crowned, anointed and blessed.

I notice that no one has even considered The Silver Chair. Poor Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum. ;))

I've always had difficulty with this question because a number of them tempt me for various reasons, but I think I'll go with The Horse and His Boy. Plenty of natural beauty to take in while traveling through different types of terrain, and I think the court of Archenland would suit me well. I also haven't ridden a horse in a very long time and rather miss it. Being able to talk with one would be amazing!

Either where Lucy first enters Narnia (LWW) or where Shasta meets Bree (HHB)... I have a craving for adventure and discovering new places. And if I could turn around and have a horse talk to me that would be awesome! XD (Maybe not the whole about to be sold into slavery part, but they made it out okay in the end, right? :P )
