So we've finished up with "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe". Forgive me for killing time this week, but I wanted to talk through a few things.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I really enjoyed this deconstruction. It took me a few places I knew I would go -- my frustration with the way Aslan is written, and my frustration for how Susan is treated by the text -- but it also took me in a few places I did not expect to go at all. I didn't expect to like Edmund as much as I ended up doing, and I didn't expect to feel as ambivalent about Peter (previously one of my favorite characters) as I did. That surprised me.
I would be very happy to keep going, but I would also like to hear what you all have to say about that. Do you want more Narnia or something fresh and new and different? VOTE. (And also, if we keep going, is there anything that you'd like to see done differently? Thoughts are welcome.)
Also-also, while we are doing the vote and I'm reading up on "Prince Caspian" (or starting a new series, depending on board opinions), I'm going to run weekly Claymores and finish out that series as well. Full speed ahead!
