    If the site goes down, you can’t help wondering what your Forum Friends are up to… and even though you don’t do Facebook you peek on someone else’s to see if there is a Lion’s Call hang out there…

        106.You drive your mom nuts by saying”Hey mom,I am going to Narnia and am staying there for the rest of my life!”-}————————————{Caspian”s sword in PC}

  2. Tenethia BrandybuckTenethia

    You didn’t know the meaning of the word bored until your favorite Narnia site crashed, leaving you with virtually nothing to do. After all, who are you going to share your ideas, articles, fanfics, and play games with?

    1. White RoseWhite Rose

      FF!!! What happened to you?!
      Our server crashed about a month ago, and wasn’t restoring our site any time soon, so Kristi decided to move us to here… We are currently working on rebuilding the site and forum…and everyone needs to reregister.

      Now, back to topic. 😉

      1. Fireflower

        Thanks! I have been looking for TLC all over the place for a quite awhile now. I am glad to have finally found whats left of it until the site is rebuilt!

  3. Tenethia BrandybuckTenethia

    You know you’re a Narnian when you fancy you see a large bug in your kitchen and you draw your sword, even if you don’t even really have one.

    1. PuddleglumPuddleglum

      you know your addicted when you can tell your siblings the story of Narnia with the voices included, and you sound just like the audio book! lol

  4. Aravis

    If you coerce your brother multiple times to dress up in a narnian costume you made, and then end up as the costume designer for a narnian play : D

  5. 1aslanfan1aslanfan

    65 and 98 are definitely my favorites. My brother has a LWW movie poster, and I haven’t seen it since he got it, because it’s on the inside of his bedroom door. The other day I went in to ask him something, and the first thing I said when I saw the poster was, “This is a lot bigger than I remembered!”

  6. Hiking Peter

    You may be addicted to Narnia if….You sit and watch LWW because it’s on television, even though you’re late to choir practice and you’ve seen the movie a bajillion times.
