Aslan's Country: Voyage of the Dawn Treader Extravaganza!!!

Narnia makes me squeal. Narnia makes me do crazy things, like hosting a blog celebration in anticipation for the upcoming Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie.
"Wazzat?" You ask, rubbing your eyes sleepily. " Whas a Voyage thing-a-what?" I stand back and glance at the large, moss-speckled rock you've emerged out of.

" Let me enlighten you," I say kindly, holding out my hand.

Okay, okay, back to reality.

Well yes, I am hosting a VODT celebration party here on my blog. And even if no one participates, I'm dying to do one anyway. Something tells me I shall be having a lot of fun ;)

Particulars Regarding this Celebration:

Title: Alsan's Country: Voyage of the Dawn Treader Extravaganza!

Dates: 24 November- 10 December

* A note regarding the dates. As I am a busy university student with exams looming round the corner, Extravaganza events will take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays, not every single day. I am only human after all.


A Scene in the Life of.... : On this day anyone who wants to can post a short piece taken from any scene in the book of VODT and write a first-person account from a principal character in that scene. For example, I can write the scene where Eustace gets turned into a dragon from Eustace's point of view. Have fun with it. My mind is already brimming with delicious ideas.

Fashion Aboard the Dawn Treader:

You know me... I love anything fashion-ie. After all, costumes are one of the principal reason as to why I watch period dramas. For this event, I am going to post pictures of outfits from my own wardrobe that could serve me well aboard the Dawn Treader if I was ever so lucky as to actually win a cruise with Caspian  action-laced adventure with captain and crew. You are all welcome to do the same.

Discussion about the Book I : Favourite Scenes

What's your favourite scene in VODT? Why? Now is the time to come out of the closet and confess that you just love the scene where Lucy waves at the mer-girl or where they almost get turned to gold or where Eustace swings Reepicheep round by his tail. Remember: no scene is safe!

Discussion about the Book II: Favourite Characters

Who's your favourite character, the one that made the book for you? Eustace? Grumpas? Lord Bern? Chief Monopod? Sea Serpent? Remember: no character is safe!

Mad Movie Anticipations:

What exactly are you anticipating from the soon-to-be released movie? Hysteria? (from yourself that is) Lots of water? Hot Caspian? Cheeky Eustace? Abnormal plot-twisting? Soul-stirring music? Feel free to wax lyrical or hysterical over all your fears, hopes, wishes and dreams concerning the movie.

I know I said that the start date is November 24, but the actual Events will begin on November 27, to give you time enough to prepare.

* There is NO word limit for any piece of writing that you want to submit. Say you want to do the rewrite of the scene, you can do it in as few or as many words as you wish. How to submit: publish the piece on a post in your blog and email the link to me. I will then publish the link on my blog. So if you are submitting something for the 27th, please send me the link on the 26rd, so it gets published in time. However, since I'm in a happily lenient mood, I shall be expecting and adding submissions until the next blog event.

* The same rules as above for photo submissions. I'm too lazy to reiterate them.

IMPORTANT: Could you please comment below and tell me whether you are participating? That would be so helpful to me! You don't have to tell me what exactly you are doing ( though if you did that would be nice too), but just a little comment to say you are interested would give me an idea as to how many participants I'll have. I'm not expecting too much, but I would be happy to have as many as possible. And if you think other people would love to have some Narnia fun, I am not barring you from mentioning this event on your blog!

Any questions? I'll be only too happy to answer them :)

For Narnia! And for Aslan!


  1. You're not as excited as I am, girl!!! ;) *hugs*

  2. Haha, I don't know how to measure our levels of excitement, but combined they shall probably be fearsome indeed! Can't wait to watch it!

  3. Sounds like a fun event/celebration. I am not a huge fan of Narnia, but I really like your idea! Hope you get lots if participants! :)

  4. Hey Shelley! I don't know if I'll have any participants, but I'm really enjoying doing this nevertheless :)


I delight in comments! However, I do not delight in profanity or vindictive remarks. Let us encourage each other and enjoy each varying opinion.
