The Friday Five is a set of interesting things I ran across over the course of the week that I thought were worth sharing widely. Most of these were already shared on my Facebook feed, but I wanted to elevate them and put them in front of people for a second time. I hope to make this a weekly feature in the future.
I don’t actually write fanfic very often. but I got the idea for this the other day, and decided to write it down.
Mr Tumnus: [as Aslan is about to swat a fly] Mr. Secretary, Narnia abstains, courteously.
[Aslan raises a huge paw at Tumnus, then draws back]
Aslan: Mr. Tumnus, [pause, then roars] WHAT IN THE NAME OF TASH GOES ON IN NARNIA?
Mr. Tumnus: I’m sorry, my lord, but the simple fact is that our legislature has never sent us explicit instructions on anything!
Aslan: NEVER? [slams paw onto his desk] That’s impossible!
Mr Tumnus: My lord, have you ever been to Caer Paravel?
[Aslan shakes his head “No”]
Mr. Tumnus: There are four thrones there, to seat the two sons of Adam and two daughters of Eve who are to rule all of Narnia. But the four thrones have been empty for a very long time. With the result that nothing ever gets done. [turns to the Congress as he returns to his seat] I beg the Congress’s pardon.
Aslan: [grimly] My sympathies, Mr. Tumnus.
