Welcome to NarniaWeb, Catmint! :ymhug: (I'd say Percy, but I think Catmint is just such a neat name!)

Glad to hear that we have another writer in our midst! You should check out the Writer's World thread and maybe even the thread for Camp NaNoWriMo 2014; it began on April 1st and it's not to late to jump in! Loads of people on here are obsessed with LotR and Doctor Who, so this is definitely the place for you! I'm a Frozen fan, too. :D

Anyway, hope you have a fun time exploring the forum and I hope to see you around! The Town Square in Ditto Town is the place to be for awesome and random discussion (and it's the home of a Chocolate Tree!), so feel free to drop by sometime and say hi! :)

Soooo ... welcome to the forum, Catmint! 'Tis cool that you're friends with Summer. :) Rose kindly linked to the Writers' topics, but I just wanted to double-check that you actually love to write. ;) ;)) Seriously, so glad to have you on NarniaWeb! :D

Welcome to NarniaWeb, Trojan Horse! :-h

I'm a huge fan of black and white movies; many of my favorite films were made in the 30s and 40s! :) Around these parts, the Past Movies thread is the best place to talk about that era of film. It's a great place to learn about and recommend good movies!

Oh, and if you'd like to tell us a little more about yourself, feel free to fill out the "Getting to Know You" questionnaire! The Town Square in Ditto Town is the central hub for general, everyday discussion, so drop sometime by if you like!

Hope to see you around the forums! :)

Hi there I am new here but I am an old timer at NarniaFans. Always thought this web site forum was more nerdy and young for me that NarnaFans, but I finally decided to come over here and see if I am as welcome here as there :ymhug: .
I go by the name of TimmyofOz.
I am a single king.
Favorite literature is Peter Pan, Oz Books, and the Chronicles of Narnia.
Favorite Narnia book is a toss between The Horse and His Boy, and the Silver Chair. I have read or listen on audio books all of the Chronicles more than I can count. I also love Lewis' Space Trilogy. I first read the Chronicles when I was in my early 20's back in 1980.
I am an American.
And I Love Jesus.

Welcome to the forums, TimmyofOz! :-h Lol, we can be rather nerdy around here, but I like to think that it's in a good way. ;)) The Horse and His Boy and The Silver Chair rank very high on my list of favorite CoN books as well!

If you like discussing literature, you should check out the Books Thread, as well as all of the Narnia-related subforums for lots of discussion about the Chronicles and C.S. Lewis! There's also a thread for Christianity, Religion and Philosophy, if you enjoy discussing those topics.

The Town Square in Ditto Town is the main hangout for random, general, day-to-day discussion, so feel to say hi over there as well. Enjoy exploring the forum, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask! :)

A warm welcome to you, TimmyofOz, to NarniaWeb! Mmm, I really like Lewis' Space Trilogy as well. Have you read any of his non-fiction? As for a favourite of the beloved Chronicles, I always say that my favourite is whichever one I am reading at the time. ;)) However, if I was put to it and had to choose, probably The Silver Chair. Interesting about The Horse and His Boy: as I child, it was my least favourite, even though I still really liked it; as an adult, it has become so much more. The depth of meaning is astounding, and has meant a great deal to me in my life's journey, particularly the chapter, "The Unwelcome Fellow Traveler".

I hope you feel at home here. It's great to have you!

I too am a fan of 'The Silver Chair'. Voyage of the Dawn Treader is also on my list of favorites.
