Hello, everyone, and welcome back to Quote, Unquote!
It’s been a while since I’ve read the entire Narnia series the whole way through, but I was nominated by four different bloggers to do this tag, so I guess I should! I believe this tag was created by S. J. Barnard–go check out her blog.
- Thank the person(s) who nominated you (Thanks to Maya Joelle, Timothy Benefield, Bethany Lang, and E. C. Colton!)
- Describe the rate of your Narnia fanatic (nostalgic, serious, maniacal)
- Answer the questions below
- Tag 5+ bloggers
- Have fun!
Rate of Narnia fanatics:
- Nostalgic Fanatic—you read the book and/or watched the movies as a child and the word Narnia gives you a warm feeling
- Serious Fanatic—you rediscovered the wonder of Narnia after you were older and have read the books and watched the movies
- Maniacal Fanatic—you have lived Narnia from childhood, hid in closets on more occasions than is healthy, have read and watched all the movies including the BBC version
I’m probably just a nostalgic fanatic. We read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and The Magician’s Nephew during my seventh grade year, and I read all the books when I was maybe 11? It’s been a while. I need to reread.
1. Who’s your favorite Pevensie sibling?
Ooh…hard to choose. Probably Susan, though. She’s the responsible older sister and sticks up for her siblings. And…her bow…what a beauty….
2. What is the most underrated Narnia book?
The Magician’s Nephew! I can’t count the number of times I’ve talked to someone about Narnia and mention The Magician’s Nephew and they just look at me blankly. It’s necessary to the series! I don’t understand why it’s not more widely known.
Rant over. Next question:
3. Who is your favorite Narnian king?
*tries to remember the Narnian kings* It’s been a while, in case you couldn’t tell.
Frank! Yeah, that dude from The Magician’s Nephew who was a cabbie in London and became a king in Narnia because of Aslan? I just thought it was really cool how he was just this lowly commoner who became king of an entire new world.
4. Who is your favorite Narnian queen?
I’m…tempted to write Jadis in here, just because I love her backstory. I feel like there was a lot more to her than the White Witch. And yes, I know she was evil, but I really did like her for some strange reason.
(Plus, she kind of reminds me of Hela from Thor: Ragnarok. Don’t judge. Please?)
5. Which non-human Narnian do you like the best?
Honestly, why is this even a question? Aslan! I love cats. Even the large kind. Besides, he was so masterfully written.
6. Which book deserves a movie?
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, purely because it’s such a fundamental part of the series. And yes, I’m aware that there are, like, six million movies of this book out there, but still. I stand by my opinion.
7. What is the one thing you did as a Narnia fan you did not regret?
Write this post!
(Although, after putting Jadis down as my favorite queen…I probably will.)
If you can’t or don’t want to do this tag, no worries, I won’t be offended. If you do…great! And if you weren’t tagged but want to do this anyway, go right ahead! The questions are all yours.
What’s your favorite Narnia book? What rate fanatic would you describe yourself as?
