Always winter, and never Christmas...

You're The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe!

by C.S. Lewis

You were just looking for some decent clothes when everything changed
quite dramatically. For the better or for the worse, it is still hard to tell. Now it
seems like winter will never end and you feel cursed. Soon there will be an epic
struggle between two forces in your life and you are very concerned about a betrayal
that could turn the balance. If this makes it sound like you're re-enacting Christian
theological events, that may or may not be coincidence. When in doubt, put your trust
in zoo animals.

One of my all-time favorite Desert Island books! I was one of those kids who spent most of her time getting stuck in closets and cupboards and armoires and under bushes in her tireless effort to get to Narnia. I still get teased about it too. I love the whole series (the Christian allegory notwithstanding. If I want a fucking sermon, Mr. Lewis, I'll go to mass! /rant) but none of the others can hold a candle to TLTWATW. I just love the atmosphere in it. Always winter and never Christmas, and fauns named Mr. Tumnus and witches and castles and Turkish Delight and even some of the trees are on her side, so speak softly and look over your shoulder...
Good thing I left the series at home, I'd never get anything done today...
