Young Prince Rilian

Young Prince Rilian, the official portrait, painted shortly before he disappeared. Not exactly Medieval clothes, but they’re fanciful enough to be Narnian.

Narnia Fundament and Firmament (Part I)

Or, Narnia above and below. Hold onto your hats, folks, for it’s going to be a rocky ride… Now we come to tricky part of mapping out the world of Narnia – the skies above, and what’s underground. Both areas are magical and not limited by the geography and physics of our world. Both contain …

Worldbuilding Wednesday 9/6/23: Let’s Talk About Bism (Narnia XLX)

The Land of Bism appears in The Silver Chair. It is a magical land made of  molten rock shaped into terrestrial life, where gems grow on trees and there are streams and waterfalls of liquified ores. I’ve heard it said that the name came from the word abysmal, a descriptor of great depth; but, frankly, …

The Green Witch’s Bento Box

As long as we’re doing Narnian bento boxes, how about ones for specific Narnian characters? Like The Lady of the Green Kirtle. You can interpret it either as something she might serve to guests, or one that’s merely inspired by her, intended to be served up at a Narnian theme park. Like all the AI …

Prince Rilian: Narnia’s Hard Luck Hero

 Every Summer of Narnia I’ve done since 2020 takes on its own shape as the weeks progress. I didn’t expect this summer to focus so heavily on The Silver Chair, yet that’s the way it turned out. In this post though, instead of saying more about the Green Witch, I’ll turn the lens onto her …

Malignment in Emerald [Fanfic]

I realized I didn’t announce this particular fanfic. It’s on AoW. I am tired of this slander. Oh, I suppose I should be flattered that all of Narnia thinks of me as a femme fatale… the cunning, poisonous witch who seduced a crown prince and kept him in my thrall. The lute-playing enchantress who created …

Narnian Witches: The Lady of the Green Kirtle (AI Remix)

Let’s see what AI does with this poisonous green lady. For example, bringing her into the 1970s. OF COURSE she’d have an electric guitar as her instrument of choice! That said, this one looks like a still from the movie flop Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the one that starred the Bee Gees and …

Malice in Jade [Narnia Fanfic]

Worldbuilding Wednesday 7/26/23: Rilian’s Brothers (Narnia XLIV)

  A few days ago, in the Narnia subreddit, I discovered a glaring discrepancy in The Silver Chair I had never noticed before. At the end of The Voyage of The Dawn Treader, Lewis has this to say about Caspian and Ramandu the Star’s Daughter: Caspian married Ramandu’s daughter and they all reached Narnia in …

Worldbuilding Wednesday 7/19/23: From the Spellbook of the Green Witch (Narnia XLIII)

  The Lady of the Green Kirtle, IMO, is one of Lewis’s most terrifying creations in the Chronicles… so terrifying she doesn’t even get a proper name! Duplicitous, poisonous, beguiling, only when her power is defied does she show her true nature: she morphs into a giant snake that is more dragon than serpent. Her …
