What Lucy Found There – Writing Contest #84

When Lucy first visited Mr Tumnus’ house, she noted that he had some curious titles on his bookshelf: The Life and Letters of Silenus, Nymphs and Their Ways, Is Man a Myth?, and others. If she were to read the back covers of these books, what more could she discover about these tomes? What other books might she find on the shelf? Choose or make up a title and write up a brief synopsis!

Example: “Taste of the Sea, for advanced flutists”

Master musician Lyron Ionathus has often attributed his passion for music to the merfolk, whose songs are unique in tone, tempo, and composition, impossible to replicate by land-dwellers. After much study and labour and for the first time ever, the sea comes to the land with Lyron’s transpositions for the double-reeded flute.

Update on the Silver Chair

(This post was created for April Fools Day 2016. We hope you enjoyed this article anyways.

If you have been following our news feed here on TLC, you have definitely seen the updates we have shared from Douglas Gresham. If somehow you’ve missed them, here they are:

Douglas Looks Forward to Puddleglum
Gresham on the Order of the Narnia Films
Gresham’s Update on the Silver Chair Script

This week, one more update has been posted. Regretfully, Donald Gresham has announced that they are ceasing work on the films until further notice. “Unfortunately, the Chronicles are losing popularity. With this enormous gap between films, some research we have been doing is showing us that a fourth Narnia film is simply an impossibility. Only one out of a hundred people have even heard of the Chronicles of Narnia. It’s quite saddening.” You can visit the original article here and read the entire interview, as well as see the research Donald was speaking of.

While Narnia fans everywhere, myself included, are deeply disappointed, I’m certainly glad we have this hope: April Fool’s Day.

April Fools’ Faux Interview: James McAvvoy Shares Fun Facts About Himself in New Interview

(This post was created for April Fools’ Day 2016. We hope you enjoyed this article anyways.)

In recent interview with FylmTyme.Net Scottish Actor James McAvvoy reveals some interesting facts about himself.

McAvvoy shares that Mr. Tumnus is not actually the first mythological creature he has played. He recalls a Middle School play where he was once a merman—he said it was an embarrassing costume for him at the time.

He goes on to speak of his aspirations when he was younger—he did not always want to be an actor, but, because of the lure of traveling the world, he wanted to be a Roman Catholic Priest and Missionary.

McAvvoy’s talents go beyond acting—he has recently written an autobiography entitled Life Had Its Own Plan which is due for release in early 2017.

Not only does McAvvoy write, but he is also musically inclined, playing the flute and the piano.

Though many of us may claim The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe as our favorite movie, James McAvvoy prefers The Goonies.

On a surprising note, Narnia was brought up during the interview by FylmTyme.Net. The actor commented on it briefly, saying he would be interested in reprising the role of Mr. Tumnus one day, though he wasn’t sure if it would be in The Silver Chair and that he has heard no news of the project.
