@rraym welcome! A few of us are 'grandparent generation', and we still love reading the books and discussing them.

@rraym Nice to meet cha! I always wanted to learn wood work myself, it's cool you can do that! Instruments as well... I was hoping to get a tongue drum to learn for fun though it does take commitment to stick with it and I've already have a few Instruments I haven't learned how to play lol.

Welcome to NarniaWeb, @rraym! Music is a huge, irreplaceable part of my life (I majored in music at university, focusing on piano), and I love that you play so many instruments. ♪ ♫ Grin Do you have a favourite?

@jo I love the sound from a tuba, but the horn is big and cumbersome to hold and carry.  All in all, I prefer the baritone, but I have not played one for over 30 years.

1. Name (please avoid your real full name):  Kate.

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

3. Family (single/married/kids): I have one older sister.

4. How you learned about NarniaWeb: About a month ago I was looking for some Narnia themed crafts to make my friend for her birthday, and stumbled around this forum by clicking a link about it. I forgot all about it as I was busy with school work but then while looking for a knitting pattern for lucy's cardigan I found it again. I looked at posts and after awhile I plucked up the courage to create an account! 

5. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: I'm not 100% sure I think I was probably around 7 when I first read some of them (not sure which ones, I think probably Magicians Nephew, LWW and Prince Caspian), and then around 9 I read them all!

6. How many times have you read the Chronicles: Probably around 6 times! I like to read alot but usually find it hard to reread books but some of the narnia books I just keep rereading LOL.

7. Favorite of the Chronicles: I'm not completely sure as it changes quite alot! currently my favourite is the silver chair because I find the storyline and the characters really interesting.

8. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: I like to bake, Knit and occasionally embroider (when im not completely swamped with school!). I also love to read, mainly fantasy books but i enjoy most genres. I also fence and do Tae Kwon do.

A hearty, warm Narnian welcome to you, @narniafan_101! Wave So, are you currently in the middle of knitting Lucy's cardigan? We'd love to see a photo when it is complete. Smile  

It sounds like you are very busy with school, but I'm glad you are still taking time to read and be creative! Cool

1. Name (please avoid your real full name): 

Jo, nice to meet you! 

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

Queen 

3. Family (single/married/kids):

Single 

4. Occupation: 

Studying

5. How you learned about NarniaWeb:

I first came to NarniaWeb a few months before Joe Johnston was announced as director of SC - a long time ago!! I think I was just googling and stumbled across the website as a kid, a pretty good find I think! 😉 

6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles:

Ooh that’s a good question…maybe 7? But probably even younger than that - it’s hard because I grew up with the first Walden movie so I’m not sure whether the book or movie came first! 

7. How many times have you read the Chronicles:

oh gosh…some I’ve read more than others, at least 10 probably…

8. Favorite of the Chronicles:

Horse and His Boy, but I have a feeling it will switch to Silver Chair next time I reread 🙂 

9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you:

Hmm, suddenly I can’t think of anything interesting about myself! But in terms of hobbies I love reading, theatre, and am a pretty universal film lover - I have a favourite movie in pretty much every genre of film 🙂

@hiraeth welcome!

I like your choice of name; being half Welsh myself I know its meaning.

Welcome to Narniaweb, @hiraeth! There's lots to discuss about Narnia and related things.

So glad you are here on NarniaWeb, @hiraeth! Wave I, too, love the meaning of your name. It reminds me somewhat of the German 'Sehnsucht' to which Lewis was so drawn. Not exactly the same meaning, but along a similar vein, it seems.

Re your interests/hobbies, we have a thread in the Spare Oom for each area you mentioned: books, theatre (that one is on the second page), and movies. Smile  

Enjoy the discussions!

Thanks so much guys! Looking forward to lots of great discussions! 😊 

Also I’m glad you guys like my name! I’m not Welsh, but I found the word online and think it’s very beautiful and fitting for being a fan of Narnia 🙂

1. Name (please avoid your real full name):  Silverlily. 

 

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

 

3. Family (single/married/kids): Single adult, living with family because of medical things.

 

4. How you learned about NarniaWeb: I've been on TLC for ages as Lily of Archenland and y'all get mentioned sometimes in the chat.

 

5. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: ...read independently, or do read-alouds count?

 

6. How many times have you read the Chronicles: I never kept count.

 

7. Favorite of the Chronicles: I think lately I've been on a bit of a Magician's Nephew kick.

 

8. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: I draw and paint a lot, write (mostly poetry these days), and experiment with cooking. I read voraciously, especially fantasy, scifi, and children's lit. I'm the second child of four. I'm probably a bit ideologically weird by your standards these days, but no worries, I know how to avoid trigger topics! I have one pet, a beloved kitty named Lilah.
