"But if you have been – if you’ve been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you – you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing is ever going to happen again.”
C.S. Lewis | The Chronicles of Narnia

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.

Birthday Countdown 3 - King Arthur meets Reepicheep by me!
I decided this year to do something special by doing a countdown to my birthday, where each day I will post a drawing I've been wanting to do for a long time. Right now, we are on day 3. Only 2 more days until my birthday! So here is a drawing based on one of my old Sketchbook of Fun drawings, which is a crossover between two timeless stories & legends in the fantasy genre - The Legends of King Arthur (& many various retellings including The Once & Future King by T.H. White) & The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. As many of you know from the Arthurian legends, King Arthur only allowed the most skilled, most loyal, & bravest knights to join him in Camelot at the Round Table. These are traits that perfectly fit the character of Reepicheep, the mouse who appears in the Narnia books Prince Caspian & The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader. Since Reepicheep is the bravest knight of Narnia, I imagine he'd be no exception in Camelot either, & so I made this scenario where Reepicheep wishes to serve King Arthur in Camelot as one of his knights. I guess in a way, you could call this piece "A Mouse In King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain"! Enjoy, & now there are only 2 more days until my birthday!

The one book that got me into reading is The Chronicles of Narnia.
When I die, I also want it to be the last ones I read.
So that my beginning is the same as my end.
The only difference would be my age, my physical form and my perspective.
I think it would be like coming home after a long journey.

Here it is, guys! The cover reveal for Madness Solver in Wonderland!
Here it is: The cover reveal for Madness Solver in Wonderland! #wonderlandbooks #madnesssolver #portalfantasy #fantasyadventure #newbookrelease #fantasysteampunk #aliceinwonderland #madhatter #cheshire #fantasymystery
At long last, this serial series I used to write here on the blog for years will soon be published, and as a duology at that! Those of you who’ve followed my blog for a long time will remember the Blog Battle Challenge days, and how the prompt word “madness” brought this tale to be. I couldn’t help but think of the Mad Hatter with that prompt, y’know? And so, I crafted my smarter, mystery-solver…

I haven't read books but only saw the Narnia series. I wanted to ask you why was Susan and Prince Caspian romance was introduced in second movie when they never going to be together?
Hi there!
Prince Caspian and Susan!
Tumblr media
HAHA!
Well, if I remember correctly (and it has been a while since I read the books), Caspian and Susan does not happen in the books. Narnia are real children’s books and Caspian falls in love with the daughter of the Star Ramandu in ‘Voyage on the Dawn Treader’.
I do think there is a reason though they introduced a romance and that is because of Susan. In contrast to the other Narnia children Susan actually matures and becomes grown up with grown up interests - to the horror of her siblings. You could say that this is foreshadowed in the books when Susan has a handful of suitors in her time as Queen of Narnia.
The thing is that her siblings see this as a bad thing. Grown up Susan, interested in clothes and lip sticks and so on, forgetting about Narnia. But C.S. Lewis himself did not see it as a bad thing. Contrary to common belief he does not condemn Susan but says that she has got her own life and that she will find her own way back to Aslan - but because this would be a story about an adult life it is not C.S. Lewis’ story to tell. If I remember correctly he even told his readers that they could write their own story about Susan!
I think they introduced the Susan/Caspian romance for two reasons then: One reason certainly was Ben Barnes. I mean.... Just think about being in a magical land with the only human men around being your brothers and Ben Barnes (or the enemy). Feeling slightly attracted is perfectly reasonable in this situation (at least if you are a woman that is attracted to men). And even if there were many many more men, getting bedazzled by the presence of Ben Barnes would be believable.
The other reason is that Susan grows up and this is stressed not only by the doomed romance with Caspian but also by the romance that is happening in the background story: Before they leave for Narnia Susan rejects the advances of a classmate by telling him a false name, but when they return from Narnia she meets her classmate again and they share a smile that could point towards a future romance.
I actually like it: Instead of giving us a fraction between the siblings, Susan’s story is nudged into the direction it is headed for in the books, but without being judgemental.
Otherwise you just have to turn to fanfiction for Susan/Caspian....
Thanks for the ask!
