Bree and Shasta
Was listening the chronicles of Narnia: The Horse and Boy. Thought of prince Philip's horse from Sleeping Beauty as Bree and Arthur from the Sword and the Stone as Shasta. So I used those two as references. Turned out pretty good. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Horse and his Boy - C.S Lewis

Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) - Review
Watching my #DVD collection in alphabetical order - #ChroniclesofNarnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)
Of all the movies from the mid 00s that tried to capitalise on the success of the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, the Chronicles of Narnia series is probably my favourite. Part of that I know comes from the fact that I liked the books long before the movies ever came out but I really would maintain that they are a good example of an adaptation of the novels into film that manages to capture…

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis Doodle (VI)
n this episode, the demon Screwtape gives advice to his junior tempter on the art of re-directing his patient’s thoughts from the appointed cross to hypothetical future fates, from God to Self, and from being self-aware of undesirable states of mind to being consumed with the danger itself...

A woman's heart should be so close to God that a man should have to chase Him to find her.

I just tried Hazer Baba’s Turkish Delight with Pomegranate, and I now understand how a 1940s schoolchild might sell out his entire family to the devil for it.

jill pole makes handmade envelopes as a form of therapy and writes letters, then seals them and adresses them and stores them somewhere safe, never to be opened.
she writes a letter to king caspian, the man she saw after he died. she asks him how the afterlife is treating him, and if he’s enjoying being young and strong again. she tucks it safe in her bookshelf, between an atlas of the seas and a poster of the caspian sea. 
she writes a letter to puddleglum and tells him all about the rainy days and the gloomy evenings. she asks him of the swamp, and if he’s had any good tea recently. she seals it and hides it under a creaky floorboard under her dinner table. 
she writes a letter to prince rilian in which she tells him about her nightmares. he’d understand, she thinks. she asks him if he’s having nightmares too. she hides the letter in the trunk under her bed. 
she writes a letter to Aslan, and it’s longer than any letter she’s written. she tells him everything: what she’s sure of, what she doubts, what she loves, what she fears, when she laughs, when she cries, when she’s happy, when she’s overcome with sadness, when it’s warm, when it’s cold, when she doesn’t know what to do. the envelope is so bulky it barely closes. she doesn’t seal it. she talks to Aslan every day.
jill pole writes a letter to eustace scrubb. she tells him everything she doesn’t have the courage to tell him in person. this is the only letter she sends, because eustace is the only recipient who lives in the same world as her.

Make your choice, adventurous Stranger; Strike the bell and bide the danger, Or wonder, till it drives you mad, What would have followed if you had.

Hufflepuff Peter Pevensie
Peter is a true hufflepuff and I can fight someone on this. He is loyal to narnia and his siblings, he was most definitely described as a kind soul more than once and he trusted Lucy so much that it bought one of the fandoms most beloved scenes to life which was him following a talking beaver he just met because his sister said she believed it.

Quote
We are always falling in love or quarreling, looking for jobs or fearing to lose them, getting ill and recovering, following public affairs. If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.    (In a sermon delivered at the height of World War Two, a period awash in distraction and despair, C.S. Lewis delivered a powerful claim about the cultivation of a deep life. - Cal Newport)

I’m reading The Magician’s Nephew for the first time (excluding that time many years ago where I started it and only read several pages lol), I’m about halfway through and my thoughts so far are
- First and foremost oh my goodness I miss Narnia so much, how did I wait this long to read this
- I love Digory and Polly as individuals and as cute bickering friends. Their personalities are great, I love when it’s written what they’re thinking during whatever’s going on, I love the silly back and forth of kids who both don’t know what’s going on but are both determined to be more right than the other.
- The way Lewis narrates is the best, I’d forgotten what it was like since I read LWW so darn long ago. I love how he’ll describe things or people’s thoughts or casually mention what they’ll think years later or just amusingly skip over something. My favorite thing: “And Polly gave him a pretty sharp answer and he said something even nastier in reply. The quarrel lasted for several minutes but it would be dull to write it all down.”
- Atlantis is real apparently. Cool.
- Spent the whole time they were setting up the Queen waiting for the name so I could know I was right about what I was picturing lol. And goodness gracious, she’s cold! She’s like, ‘yeah I killed literally everyone, why are you acting like it matters?’ Like okay lady you can apparently still shock me. All these years watching the movie and this was your backstory the whole time and I never knew it. Yikes.
- Somehow even though I knew Digory was the magician’s nephew I never really thought about the fact that there must be a magician uncle playing some kind of role lol. Uncle Andrew is honestly a bit terrifying. His indignant disinterest in any ethical arguments against any decision he wants to make doesn’t feel very dissimilar to Jadis.
- I’m not even at the technical creation of Narnia itself yet but even just thinking about Digory one day getting to talk to the Pevensies about this magical land he’s had to keep secret from everyone but Polly and learning that Jadis is gone and hearing their many tales from their time as kings and queens is making me very emotional.

I'm sorry but Peter is... the least interesting Pevensie sibling and I think that he is High King ONLY because he is the eldest male and no other reason. Im having a hard time figuring out what, exactly, he brings to the party.
