@silverlily Lovely to meet you! I'm assuming TLC is The Lion's Call? I've heard of that site, but haven't really looked at it.

I'm a voracious reader too, especially of fantasy and children's literature (not such a fan of sci-fi, but I don't mind it occasionally, especially humorous / parody takes on it) — and I love cats as well!! Hope you'll find NarniaWeb to be a purrrrrrfect community for you... couldn't resist that one, sorry. Grin

@courtenay Yup, TLC is The Lion's Call! I feel like we're not so much in our glory days over there anymore, but we've still got good folks.

Do you have any kitties of your own?

Thanks for the welcome. ^_^

No, not at present. I live in a relatively small flat and there's a "no pets" rule in my rental contract! But right now I also wouldn't have the time (or, probably, the money) that's needed to care for a pet properly. I grew up with both cats and dogs and I know what a huge commitment they are, and particularly difficult if you work long hours or you're away from home a lot. I'm sure the time will come when I'm able to have a cat of my own again one day, though, eventually...

 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.

I've seen you on TLC in the chat box. It's great to see you on Narniaweb as well.

Welcome to NarniaWeb, @LampPost579! Wave Indeed, aren't the FotF radio theatre versions fantastic? Applause I listen to them at least once every year. So well done! Grin

spending time with my family. Guess I’m kind of boring

Giggle   Except I would not call spending time with family boring. No way, no how. Giggle Imho, this is one of the most treasured, fun, invigorating things on earth. Love So, I think you are not in the least boring! Grin  

I have always said that my favourite Narnian Chronicle is the one I am reading at the time, but if I absolutely had to choose, it would probably be The Silver Chair, with The Horse and His Boy a close second. But then LWW, PC, Voyage, TMN, TLB are all excellent and treasured too.  Bats eyes LOL  

And each one becomes more wonderful and rich as I get older!

@jo I know what you mean. They’re all so great I can’t just really pick😭. I’ve been listening to the FOTF version ever since I was a little kid. I loved them when I was little, but I love them more as an adult☺️

1. Name (please avoid your real full name): Azog the Defiler. I'm actually quite nice, in spite of sharing a name with a tyrannical, non-canon orc. 

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

3. Family (single/married/kids): Single.

4. Occupation: website admin, fantasy, history enthusiast.

5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: I've been following NarniaWeb for a few years. I may have stumbled on the site years ago, but I don't remember.

6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: I was 8 when I first read them. I had seen the BBC tLtWatWD at 4, which was my introduction to Narnia.

7. How many times have you read the Chronicles: I usually try to read Narnia, "The Hobbit," and "The Lord of the Rings" between late October and New Year's Day.

8. Favorite of the Chronicles: I liked PC as a kid, but tVotDT was the only movie I saw in theaters. "The Last Battle" is the best since it has the potential to make one both happy and sad.

9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: Fishing, gardening, general enjoyment of the outdoors, reading, and archery, are some of my hobbies.

 

Good day to any reading this😄

And a hearty welcome to you, Azog! Wave

I will admit: I laughed aloud when I read this. Glad to know there are some nice orcs around. Giggle

Way to go! Applause  

Re hobbies: a heads up that we do have a Books thread here in the Spare Oom, as well as a Gardening topic. Smile  

Looking forward to seeing you around the discussions!

Welcome, Azog! It's good to hear that you are nice. Giggle  

I'm not so sure that you are non-canon, though - there is an orc named Azog in the book, and that could be you.

I'm glad that I exist in the books, even if it was merely in an honorable mention. What are your thoughts on the 2012-14 Hobbit films?
