Welcome to NarniaWeb, Will Wise! :-h It is really cool your favourite Chronicle is Prince Caspian. That one does not seem to come up too often on top, and it's great its yours! :D

Just curious: is history your focus in grad school?

2. King or Queen of Narnia (guy or girl): Queen.
3. Family (single/married/kids): single.
4. Occupation: student (recently graduated from uni)
5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: circa 2006-2007, when i was old enough to know how to do stuff (without help) on a computer.
6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: 9.
7. How many times have you read the Chronicles: several times i guess.
8. Favorite of the Chronicles: LWW, PC.
9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: when the LWW movie came out, 9 year old me was inspired, and had a dream of making movies. for a very long time, i have forgotten my dream. it was until recently when Prince Caspian was shown on TV that i suddenly remember that dream that i have forgotten, and thus i was mortified of myself.
i am now 23, and i am not sure if i can pick up my dream again. but i want to, very much. i am scared, very scared, but i will try to do something about. because i was once a narnian, too.
I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia.

A belated welcome to you, Will_Wise and narnianreturned! Glad to have you both here! :-h

Prince Caspian is my favorite Chronicle, too, Will. It doesn't get enough appreciation, I think! :)

narnianreturned, I'm glad that Narnia helped you discover (and rediscover) dreams of working in film! Very cool. :)

Have fun exploring the forum!

Hey there!

1. Name: Geekicheep
2. King or Queen of Narnia: King
3. Family: Single
4. Occupation: Software developer
5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: Searching the web for Narnia movie news, a few years after the VDT movie.
6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: I guess 15, but I had read LWW way before that, and I had seen Narnia stuff as far back as the first grade (funny story for another day).
7. How many times have you read the Chronicles: Once, but I plan to again someday soon. But of course if you count audio books then several times. :)
8. Favorite of the Chronicles: Why choose? I love them all! But I realize that's kind of a non-answer, so if I had to pick one I'd go with LWW.
9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: I'm a writer and blogger. The main themes of my blog are "tech, hockey, and all things geeky" and I have more than a few posts about Narnia. And sometimes, my love of writing and coding come together as text-based games, but I'm not published or anything (yet). I've also written my fair share of fan fiction, but we won't go into that. :)

Anyway, it's great to be here, and I'm looking forward to getting to know NarniaWeb.

Welcome to the forums, BenTheMagnificent! I like Peter a lot, too, especially in LWW. :) I'll share the link to the food discussion thread here in the Spare Oom in case you'd like to share your favorite types of hot sauce; I'm intrigued. ;)) And I'm very glad to hear that CoN was there for you during a challenging period in your life — there is so much comfort and courage to be found in their pages! :)

Enjoy exploring all of the forum discussions, and let us know if you have any questions!

Welcome to NarniaWeb, BenTheMagnificent! You listed "Singer" as your occupation. I am curious to know more about that ... do you sing professionally? I have had a deep interest in music my entire life, so become rather eager when anyone mentions anything to do with music. ;))

And I’ve cried once while reading the Chronicles of Narnia - really spoke to me when I was going through a rough season in life. Thankful for C.S. Lewis!

Amen! I rather think that more than a few of us can relate. These stories reach so deeply and richly into our experiences, don't they? ♥
