My Ideal Literary World: Narnia

Growing up, I read the entirety of the Chronicle’s of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. Besides Harry Potter, it was the most magical and wonderful place I had ever been!
A world of magical creatures, animals that talked, and where kids could be heroes? What’s better then that.
Out of all the books: I would have to pick the first or the third of the Chronicles - The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe or The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
While the first one is in winter, I would love to see the magic of the lamp post in the trees, covered in snow, and the evil snow queen in all her glory.
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is mostly so I can be on a ship. I just want to be on a boat.

Other things I would do if I was in Narnia:

Ride across the countryside on Aslan's back
Sword fight with Reepicheep
Have tea with Mr. Tumnus (and he wouldn’t put me to sleep)
And have my own Magical Weapon: a GIANT axe that kills only evil
And then I could just go back home and come back hundred of years (Narnia time) later! That would be pretty badass.
Props to @LizArnone for prompting this card with her card: If I Could Live In Any Any Literary World It would Be...

Awwww yes I loved these books! I'd want to sail away with Prince Caspian myself...
Narnia, to me, is one of he most inventive and unexplored fantasy worlds in existence. I really enjoyed the series, though not a lot of the religious symbolism
Hahahaha no man stealing from me @shannonl5 :) promise
eh. I think he’s a bit overrated... kinda too much of a Stud for me, personally @shannonl5
I remember the last part of journey with upside down cascade and boat crossing peaceful water. I would just like to be at the sides of main characters and experience everything they do in person throughout the whole story. Which is similar to reading the book, I suppose.

NCJM54 "꿈" [For future reference: Present Day chapters in Regular type; Past/Memory chapters in BOLD ITALIC; P.O.V - REGULAR ITALIC] Note: Posting as I go... Time passed slowly for him, as the rest of the world moved on. Deep inside his head as his body slumbered, he lived in ecstasy.  She rolled over to be on top, he grabbed her hips to keep in rhythm with her, he loved watching her, the look of pleasure and satisfaction emanating from her face and body. He thrusted up, watching her head throw back and roll to one side, moaning, when she suddenly stopped. He looked up at her, she recoiled and crawled back to the other end of their bed, pulling a pillow over her body. "What's wrong?" He asked grabbing her wrist to pull her back to him.  She pointed behind him.  He looked. Standing on the far side of the room was a dark figure. "Who's there… Who is that" she asked crawling up behind him as he turned around quickly to confront the invader. He narrowed his eyes, trying to see who it was, then he realized, "D… Is that you?" Kyung stepped in closer as if he was stepping into the light, he smiled slyly at him and the woman he saw was an image of Aria. "안녕 our Jun Myeon." Kyung said waving his hand. "I knew I would find you, it was just a matter of time. I kept hearing whispers but it wasn't until just now that your mind completely lost control." "I'm not going back D. I'd rather stay here." Jun Myeon said, he pulled Her arms around him as she hid behind him, continuing to softly kiss him across his back. His eyes rolled up feeling the pleasure of it. "I can see that. But it's been too long. It's time to come home."  "I TOLD YOU, I DON'T WANT TO! … Now get out."  "Jun Myeon, it's been five years!" Kyung snapped back, he took a deep breath and stared at him, not wanting to say anything because he wanted to bring him back without telling him so, but he decided to do it, "You've missed the birth of your daughter."  Jun Myeon stopped, the woman sitting behind him, stopped. He gazed at her as she moved in front of him, gazing back at him with a confused look. He reached up and caressed her cheek. "It's not mine." He leaned over and kissed his woman. "Yes. it is. Like all Vampire children that know who their parents are. She wouldn't go to Sehun…" "Don't mention his name here! I don't want to hear it."  Kyung rolled his eyes and shook his head, "fine, the child wouldn't go to him. She cried a river of blood when he tried to hold her. It broke his heart knowing that she didn't belong to him. But he's been looking after them." "Then they're together, whether that child is mine or not, her mother and Him are together." "Don't be childish…"  "LEAVE!" Jun Myeon roared. "Fine." Kyung looked at the ceiling and saw stars twinkling. "So… That's where you are" he gave Jun Myeon a crooked smile and disappeared. He looked to where D had been standing, he looked around the room making sure he was gone. He looked up at the ceiling, realizing his eyes must be open. He concentrated and the the stars faded away. He looked to his woman, he grabbed her around the waist, throwing her down, "Now where were we?" He dove into her, biting until her neck and thrusting his hard member deep into her.  NCJM Chapter 55 "The Awakening" EXO FanFicsFans: @QueenPandaBunny @Indiglow @JaxomB @Jessicalista @ynsamgwlk @MaritessSison @MelissaGarza @Namjoonsbutt @YasminChavez @luna1171 @Matty0204 @SHINee4ever @tinafalcon22
Awake - Chapter 1
"Y/N, wake up", mother said as she vigorously shook me out of my deep sleep. "Let's get going Y/N this is the last chance you'll get to make any last minute revisions for your dress." Overjoyed for her daughter's wedding, like any mother would be. "I'll be down in a minute, mom" tired from the sleepless nights I've been having these past few weeks. "It-It's near" I though  to myself, butterflies forming in my stomach for the billionth time. "Shake off the doubts Y/N" repeating it in a whisper hoping no one would hear me. Mother's head turning in a matter or seconds. "Did you say something?". "Ahh....nothing, a shower I-I need to take a quick shower" you managed to say with half a forced smile. Hoping she would buy what you were saying. "Okay well, your father and I will be waiting downstairs to eat breakfast. Don't take long" with the sweetest smile plastered​ on her face. She walked out from your room, you sat at the edge of your messy bed. Dropping your body feet dangling on the edge of the bed, facing the ceiling decorated with a clear glass chandelier. Surrounded by expensive clothes scattered around the floor. "Nothing but the best for my little Y/N" is what your father always said every single time you would ask for anything. You laid there contemplating the chandelier like it had the answers to all your problems. Suddenly a vibration coming from your nightstand brought you back to reality. Lazily dragging yourself to pick up the phone to see 10 missed calls 5 new messages. Emediately opening one in particular. Yoongi Is the future Mrs. Min up yet?? Yoongi Don't forget our date today, I've been looking forwards to it for days Yoongi Since you know I barely get to see you due to work. Y/N Ash...I wish we had more time like we use to ^_^ Yoongi Soon you'll have me all to yourself, who knows you might even grow tired of me... Y/N Pabo that would never happen...ever :3 Yoongi Okay okay joking I was only joking, well I have to get back to work Yoongi Can't afford to get fired if I want to keep daddy's little girl happy, right? Slightly laughing at what you just read. Y/N I'm not like that -_- ... you know that lol. See you later alright <3 Yoongi Yea sure lol You nodded in disapproval of his reply. Yoongi Bye. Yoongi Princess <3 "Hmm..strange" raising a suspicious look towards your phone, yoongi usually calls. "I guess he's  just been to busy to call" you brushed it off and rushed for a quick shower.
베트남에서 바가지 당하지 않는 방법
베트남 여행의 경험이 있는 사람이라면, 주변 사람들로 부터 "거기 위험하지 않아?" 라는 걱정스러운 말을 들은 기억이 있을 것이다. 주변에 바가지 씌인 사람도 많고, 일련의 일들로 인해 베트남 여행을 꺼리는 사람들이 있어 준비했다. 베트남에서 사기 당하지 않는 방법. 첫째는 가격을 물어보는 것에 대해 당당해져라 베트남 식당에서 이거 하나쯤은 서비스겠지 라고 생각하는 것도 전부 계산서에 나온다. 식당에서 손닦는 물티슈 한 장, 테이블 위에 있는 탕콩 등 1회용으로 준비된 경우에는 추가 금액이 부가된다. 꼭 필요하다면 사용 할 수 있지만 가급적 미리 준비하자. 베트남 마트에서 파는 물티슈 가격이 비싸지 않으니 하나 사놓는 것도 좋은 방법이 될 수 있다. 본론으로 돌아가서, 만약 확실하지 않은 경우에는 꼭 "How much?"를 물어보자. 베트남어로는 "Bao nhiêu tiền?" (바오 니여우 띠엔)이니 꼭 물어보자. 이 정도는 괜찮겠지 하다가는 배보다 배꼽이 더 큰 경우가 발생할 수 있다. 서비스일 거라고 예단하지 말고 꼭 "How much?"로 최소한의 억울함은 피하자. 둘째는 스마트폰을 활용하자 여행의 필수 품목 중 하나인 스마트폰은 활용 용도의 따라서 그 가치가 천차만별이 될 수 도 있다. 내가 추천할 앱은 "그랩(GRAB) 이다. 알고 있는 분들도 대부분이지만, 여기서 한 번더 이야기 해드리는 이유는 최근 들어 서비스가 다양해졌기 떄문이다. 먼저, 그랩에 대해 간다히 소기하자면, 0000년 서비스를 시작해 어느덧 우버까지 인수한 명실사부 베트남 대표 택시 기업이다. 일반 택시와 오토바이 택시는 물론이고 최근에는 음식 배달 서비스 까지 합리적인 가격으로 베트남 사람들은 물론이고 여행자들에게도 다가가고 있다. 금액이 정해져 있기 때문에 바가지의 위험성이 적고, 차의 종류도 다양해 인원 수에 따라 선택할수 있다. 개인 여행자라면 오토바이 택시도 좋은 선택지이다. 따로 팁은 안 줘도 된다. 이처럼 그랩은 가격도 저렴하고, 오토바이 천국에서 오토바이도 타보고, 헬맷까지 준비해주니 여러모로 꼭 이용해보길 바란다. 음식 배달서비스도 나름 만족한다는 평이 있으니, 필요하신 분들은 꼭 이용해보시기를 추천드린다. 스카이스캐너를 통해 비행기를 예약하고, 부킹닷컴이나 아고다로 숙소를 예약한 후 이동은 그랩으로 맛집은 지난번에 올린 방법으로 찾으면, 나름 괜찮은 여행이 될 것이다. 세번째는 자신의 숙소를 이용하자 이 방법은 투어나, 교통수단 예약시 호텔이나 게스트하우스를 이용하는 방법이다. 프론트에서 자신의 다음 여행지를 이야기하고, 투어나 가는 교통편 예약을 문의한다면 의외로 많은 정보를 알 수 있다. 물론 케바케가 있을 수는 있지만, 대체로 평균이나 평균 이하의 가격을 제시하는 곳들도 있어 위험부담을 줄일수 있고, 예약의 문제가 있을 시 숙소에서 해결해 줄수 있어, 2차 피해방지를 예방할수 있다. 버스편 예약시 해당 숙소에서 픽업하는 서비스도 누릴수 있다. 이외에도, 숙소를 이용하는 방법은 무궁무진하다. 숙소 도착 후 프론트 전화번호나 명함을 챙기면, 여행 중 길을 잃었을 때, 문제가 있을 때, 통역을 해주기도 하며, 안전하게 숙소로 돌아올수 있도록 택시를 보내주기도 한다. 체크아웃후, 짐을 맡길수도 있고 공항 픽업 서비스를 이용할수도 있다. 꼭 확인 후 이용하자. 위 방법들은 베트남 여행은 물론 대부분의 동남아 여행을 할 때 균등하게 쓰일 수 있다. 겁먹지 말고 미리미리 준비해 피해를 최소화하고 여행에 집중할수 있으면 좋을 것 같다. 짤막한 소개 안녕하세요.  "여행은 현지인의 삶을 엿보는 것이다"라는 나름에 철학을 갖고 24년 인생에서 10년째 해외 배낭여행을 다니고 있는 이산입니다. 여행 유튜버가 대세인 이 시점에서 아직도 매 여행 후 글을 남기는 이유는 어릴적 읽었던 한비야 책의 영향 일수도 있고, 동영상 보다는 텍스트를 더 사랑하는 제 마음 때문일수도 있지만, 어릴적 보았던 영화 "라따뚜이"의 명대사 "Anyone can cook"을 나름대로 바꿔 "Anyone can travel"로 살기위해 오늘도 스카이스캐너 앱을 키고있는 이산 입니다.  궁금하신점 있으시면, 댓글로 남겨주세요 최대한 빨리 맞은 정보로 답변해드리겠습니다. 글 읽어주셔서 감사합니다.
Beating Heart {Yoongi Mini FF}
Hello lovely people. I just wanted to take this time and upload a mini FF that I have been working on for years. I got angry how the original one didn't flow like intende, so it sat in my docs for a later time. I recently lost my writer's block, and this is the completed revamped version. I'm happy-ish with it and just glad it's completed. {Now I can try to finish the others} It is a small Three Chapter fiction. I may choose to expand on it later, but here it is! I hope you enjoy. Title: Beating Heart Genre: Small Romance and Angst. Pairing: Raquel [OC] x Yoongi Plot: Sometimes distance makes the heart grow fonder. Yoongi and Raquel soon learn this, after Raquel tries to leave his life. ⊱ ──────ஓ๑♡๑ஓ ────── ⊰ Chp.1 Raquel prepared herself for another day at her school. She glanced at her phone seeing it was time to leave. She grabbed her keys, and locked up her apartment. Every day she would walk to school, admiring the city. She had developed friendships amongst a few of the guys in her classes; Hoseok in particular. He became one of her best friend's over the course of her time at school. When she was new, he was one of the first people to speak with her and show her around. Knowing Hoseok was a blessing, bringing about someone else who was special in her heart. She developed feelings for the jerk Hoseok called his best friend; Min Yoongi. He was cool and supportive to his friends, but he and Raquel clashed. The entire time they were around each other, it was a battle of the wits. They were sarcastic, sometimes driving their mutual friends crazy. It was almost as if Raquel and Yoongi couldn’t breathe right around each other. She felt it was unfortunate that his beautiful face, was prettier than his personality. He was undeniably one of the best looking guys in school. They had their moments of being civil, but it was a rarity. They irked each other’s nerves. It was just frustrating to her how he was cold, and standoffish. "Raquel, here. You left your book in the library. I picked it up for you." Raquel turned around to Hoseok and his friends. He was a gem to be around, turning her bad days into good ones. "Thank you Hoseok, I didn't know I left it behind." "Maybe if you were less ditzy, then you would have picked it up," Suga adjusted the bag on his back giving her his famous grin that she loved and hated all at once. "Suga, don't be rude," Hoseok tried to hush up his friend quickly before Raquel felt offended. "It's okay Hoseok. It's better to be ditzy than a jerk," she shot Yoongi a glare. He was always so cold to her. Raquel never understood why, or what made him mad about her presence. She started walking towards class leaving the others behind. She knew when she wasn't wanted, and this was one of those times. She was labeled as a nerd, but she didn't mind. Reading books and studying was one of her favorite hobbies. Yoongi sat down beside her. She felt like she had upset the heaven’s, as his seat was besides hers. She ignored his presence as she wrote notes down. "You walk fast for someone who's so damn short," he grabbed her notebook off the desk, going through her pages. He wrote something down in the back, but he kept it out of her reach. "Why do you continuously mess with me?" "Me mess with you?" he scooted closer to her, "Raquel, that would imply something." He was even more irritating than before. “Give me my notebook back. I’m not implying anything. I’m just annoyed at how funny you think it is to constantly be a dick towards me.” “Don’t make it so easy then,” he gave her the notebook back as he smirked, pushing her forehead with his hand. One of the girls that had a crush on Yoongi scooted in between the two. It killed her to see Raquel getting his attention. Especially since she was the loner. Raquel never minded, but everyone thought it was sad. Raquel’s phone went off showing her uncle’s number. He only called her when emergencies happened. She walked out of the room answering it. “Hello, what’s wrong?” The voice on the other end of the phone was not her uncle’s. She ran back into class grabbing her stuff, heading towards the door. Yoongi watched her frantic behavior. Something upset her. Raquel grabbed a taxi to the hospital. Her family was waiting for her outside the room where her grandfather was. He wanted to see Raquel one last time. Her grandmother stood by him holding his hand. Raquel kneeled down as she hugged him. “Please take care of your grandmother, she can’t do things on her own. She will need your help. I love you Raq, I always have.” They raised Raquel as their own since she was a baby. Essentially, they were her parents. She kissed her grandfather’s head as he said goodbye. She held her grandmother as they cried. While her grandmother and uncle made the arrangements, she sat in the waiting room feeling numb. She didn't notice Hoseok or the others approach her. “You okay? Yoongi told us you abruptly left class. We went to your uncle's house, but his son brought us here.” “He's gone. My grandfather is gone. I don't know what to do.” They sat down next to her, trying to cheer her up. They noticed her wearing all black. Yoongi, amongst them, hated to see Raquel so down. He always gave her a hard time, but he didn’t like to see her upset. It made him feel some type of way to see her cry. Almost as if a boulder was crushing his chest. People started pouring in showing the family condolences. “I have to get back in there,” Raquel stood up walking towards her grandmother and uncle. Her friends followed behind her. She sat next to her grandmother. The amount of love shown to her family warmed her heart. Raquel needed to figure out her next move. With her grandmother living outside of the city, she would have to make decisions, possibly moving away. After the funeral concluded, Raquel left with her grandmother. A few days had passed with Raquel missing school. She needed to return to school to leave for a few semesters. Yoongi was walking to class when he saw her leave the office. “Raquel, what are you doing?” “Yoongi, it’s good news for you. I’m leaving school. My grandmother needs help so you won’t have to worry about seeing me again, I’m leaving town also.” “You’re leaving school, why?” “With my grandfather gone, I’ll have to take up the chores and her business. So I guess this is goodbye.” He wasn’t too excited like she told him he’d be. Yoongi didn’t want her to leave, that was the opposite of what he actually wanted. She glanced at her phone noticing the time, as Hoseok approached her. “Raqi, you’re leaving?” “Yeah, for a while. I was just telling Yoongi here that he doesn’t have to worry about seeing me anymore. Listen I gotta go, good luck in your studies guys.” She hugged them as she left. Her new fate would take her to her old hometown. Raquel always wanted to live in a big city, it was a good dream while it lasted. Her grandmother needed her though, so the decision wasn’t a hard one to make. She would periodically move her stuff back home, but not now. They got on the road as she stared out the window. She almost forgot how pretty the country was. The car came to a stop in the driveway. It was surreal that this was happening. She hadn’t returned home for a while. With her grandfather gone, she was sad and already missed him. The country was going to be peaceful at least. “Come on baby, let’s get settled.” Raquel helped her grandmother inside the house. She placed their bags down, escorting her to the kitchen. Tea was always her grams go-to for a broken heart. “Raquel, I’m sorry you’re having to take the responsibilities on. Your uncle." “I know gram, he forgot where he came from and thinks the countryside is for bumpkins. It’s okay. I didn’t fit in with anyone there, I was called ditzy a lot. So it’s better I’m here.” Her grandmother placed her hands on top of Raquel's. No matter what, she was always able to count on Raquel. If there was one thing that she did right, it was raising Raquel to be the beautiful, selfless person. She had morals and was thoughtful. That was hard to come by these days. She would see to it that Raquel would be taken care of for her selflessness. “Here have some tea, grams, we both need a good cup,” she poured the tea as they sat in silence. The time came for them to sleep. They had a big day ahead of them, adjusting to Raquel’s new schedule. She walked into her old room as she noticed nothing was moved or changed since she left. This brought a smile. They always respected her privacy, and her space. She climbed in her bed feeling at home. This would be an okay change of pace. Horrible circumstances, but a good start. ⊱ ──────ஓ๑♡๑ஓ ────── ⊰ A/N: Here it is. I may roll the story out all in one day, but it depends on what I have to do today. I also will be rewriting my other stories with the other members. Tagging my Normal Readers: @MelissaGarza @QueenPandaBunny
