You might be a Narnian if...

You expect to see Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy magically appear at trumpet recitals. (PC)

You bend to your knees in front of the lion's cage while visiting a zoo.

You try to dance with trees.

You feel sorry for the river when you see a bridge.

You hear voices and footsteps.

You worry that winter might last forever.

You ask the butcher if the meat came from talking animals or not.

You have a hunting lodge in the forest where you go to rest with your favorite unicorn.

You don't trust women in green dresses.

I like the puddle idea. I have lots of places in my yard for this.
Without my friends or cousins, I don't make sense. Life would be somewhere not worth my time.

Ummm... I actually have that... well, not that prominent, but it catches people's attention. :blush: A friend who knows how much I love the stories and the character of Aslan in particular found a beautiful picture in some magazine, cut it out and had it framed and sent it to me. It was such a nice gesture I had to have it on my wall. It's a great reminder of many good things.

Hmmm, I should try the ponds in the park nearby!

If you wonder whenever you walk through the woods if the Trees can see you....hear you.....talk to you....

Aww, this thread is awesome! I think I might just be a Narnian, these are some of the traits I found myself in :smile:

5. Christmas seems to take FOREVER to get here.
6. You examine every lamp-post you see for signs of root damage.
7. When you hear the word fau(w)n, you think not of Bambi, but of parcels and umbrellas.
10. You always reach inside wardrobes and touch the back...just in case.
12. You are always polite to animals.
13. You talk to animals.
14. Animals talk to you and you understand them!
15. You are a bit suspicious of middle-aged men wearing yellow and green rings.
17. You know that the collective term for owls is "parliament."
19. You sometimes wonder if humans are a myth.
29. You are determined to live like a Narnian, even if there isn't any Narnia.
31. You always clean your sword after battle.
32. The first time you ever heard the name Aslan, a curious feeling awoke inside you.
35. You have conversations with your horse.
36. You have a strange approach/avoidance reaction to Lions.
37. You believe the stars in the heavens are people you have personally met.
39. You believe that a Lion can change a dragon into a boy by "peeling" him.
40. You enjoy having tea parties with fauns and beavers.
41. You know dwarves exist, but you are never sure which side they're on.
o You know that some insides are bigger than the outsides.
o Your are old enough to read children's stories (again).
o People notice that you are different than you were last year.
You come out of the room and find that not even a minute has passed.
You suddenly find yourself wisked away.
You long to see World's End.
You see an old friend who has aged much too fast.
You can never get the whole time concept right.
You get the feeling there are invisible people watching.
You don't care, you will read the spell.
You've always liked the painting of that ship in your room. (It wasn’t in my room though, but in my grandparents’ living-room)
If you wonder whenever you walk through the woods if the Trees can see you....hear you.....talk to you....
You bend to your knees in front of the lion's cage while visiting a zoo.
You worry that winter might last forever.
You don't trust women in green dresses.



I would also add:
•Playing Hide and Seek will never be the same again.
•When you play Hide and Seek you always hide in wardrobes and secretly hope it will take you back to Narnia.
•You inspect the ground around lampposts for traces of faun hoofs
•You have a friend who really reminds you of Mr Tumnus and you secretly think it is him disguised as a human
•You think of yourself as a daughter of Eve or son of Adam
•You distrust apes
•Some places in your town have an uncanny resemblance to Narnia, but when you tell your friends about it they roll their eyes and say "Here she/he goes again"
