the chronicles of narnia by c.s lewis

“I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand a word you say, but I shall still be. ― your affectionate Godfather, C. S. Lewis.”

Let's just take a moment to remember the dark ages of Disney park characters.

Prince Caspian. I’m sure this lasted like two weeks. 

I don’t even know what this is. Jessica Rabbit. Okay. That’s cool. But is this a fur character or a face character? Why was this a thing. 

Let us never forget the days of the mowgli face character; where they hired a guy to run around in shorts. A moment of silence. 

And finally: my absolute favorite. Flounder.


I cannot come up with a caption for this.

Two days ago, I didn’t believe in the existence of talking animals … of dwarves or… or centaurs. Yet here you are, in strengths and numbers that we Telmarines could never have imagined.Whether this horn is magic or not, it brought us together… and together, we have a chance to take back what is ours!

Peter: it’s been a year
Me: yeah, okay

❝ Everything became much brighter, and after a few steps they found themselves at the edge of the wood, looking down on a sandy beach. A few yards away a very calm sea was falling on the sand with such tiny ripples that it made hardly any sound. There was no land in sight and no clouds in the sky. The sun was about where it ought to be at ten o'clock in the morning, and the sea was a dazzling blue. They stood sniffing in the sea-smell.

“By Jove!” said Peter. “This is good enough.”

Five minutes later everyone was barefooted and wading in the cool clear water. ❞

So I’ve been on a mega Narnia binge lately and I started rereading all the books.

And I came across this little tidbit in Prince Caspian where they’re partying and having a celebration feast because they won the war against the Telmarines; and the dancing trees are being served a special batch of gourmet “earth,” to eat that “looked almost exactly like chocolate; so like chocolate, in fact, that Edmund tried a piece of it, but he did not at all find it nice.”

Guys, Edmund Pevensie once willingly ate dirt because it looked like chocolate, and I feel 110% better now that I have this information in my life.
