My Proposal on the Dawn Treader

Here’s the story of my proposal, told in two very distinct stories.  I hope that you enjoy it!

At long last, the story that I’ve been waiting so long to reveal to the world.  Here is a very special Narnia story, that happened last fall, as described by publicist Ernie Malik.

What is it like to fall in love in Narnia?

by Ernie Malik

A curious question you may think. We bring it up here, while cruising along on our third voyage through this wondrous world created by C.S. Lewis, because the wonder of love did happen…to six couples who worked on both the first and second film adaptations.

And that’s not the only account of the story…

Couple’s love revolves around ‘Chronicles of Narnia’

by John Serba

Courtney Addicott didn’t have a clue.

She thought she was merely tagging along with her boyfriend of four years, Paul Martin, when he visited the movie set of “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” in September. They were given a tour of the titular boat, situated on the end of a pier on Australia’s Gold Coast, at Cleveland Point in Brisbane.

Addicott thought Martin’s hands were shaking because he was among famous actors and filmmakers, nervous about interviewing them for his Web site, Narniafans.com. She thought it strange that a photographer seemed to be stalking them, but she didn’t say anything.

Paul runs a “Chronicles of Narnia” fan website and proposed to Courtney on the set of the next movie in Australia.She soon knew why: In front of the beautifully constructed helm of the Dawn Treader, Martin got down on one knee, pulled out a diamond ring and proposed. Her answer? Yes. Of course.

    I’m stunned to discover your blog. I came here to follow the SW Prequel Reboot #2 article (which I found to be perfect in every way), and then as I explored further I find that you’re the creator of a website I read quite often, Narniafans.com. Both the Star Wars prequels and the Narnia films leave me bawling in tears every time, out of the sheer power they hold (I even had the same reaction when I took my daughter through the Narnia Experience exhibit last summer), so to find someone that shares such a deep appreciation of both franchises, and who is such a participant of one of them, makes me admire your position.

    I’m astounded at the amount of work you contribute to the online communities, as I see the list of blogs you devote to various properties, and you’re a definite inspiration as such. As a filmmaker myself I cannot wait to have the opportunity to delve into some of these franchises, but in the meantime I will continue to thrive on the great work you deliver through narniafans.com, and in any future SW Prequel blogs.

    Best of luck and take care. Congratulations on the engagement!

      Wow, Damon, thank you for commenting and it’s amazing that you have discovered this blog among the many others that I work so hard to keep up with, all the while also planning a wedding in the midst of all of it. Thanks for the compliments on the Prequel Reboot blog. I haven’t been able to keep writing it as much as I would like, but I think that whenever I get a bit of inspiration, writing comes the easiest.

      I feel the same exact way as you do about the films, and film in general. There are some movies that just capture a lot of brilliant emotional points that really move me greatly. Perhaps I’ll do a “Movies that Move You” series at some point. I’ve gotta tell you, it’s a lot of work making things like this happen, but I have to moderate it with other things that level things out so I’m not overwhelmed.

      The Narnia Experience is brilliant, and I hope you can see it again some day, as they’re going to add some neat Dawn Treader things to it that are just beautiful. It’s always amazing to have someone comment that has found much of my work, or has been following it for some time, and I never feel like I deserve such praises, but I thank you very deeply for the compliments, and for taking the time to write this.

      I hope that my prequel reboot blog maintains some good coverage, though I haven’t planned it all out, so I don’t know how many articles it’ll be and if what I’m talking about I’ll actually agree with myself! I am going to try to keep it entertaining, while being honest about what my own thoughts are for the potential reboot. It’s something that I know not everyone will agree with every time, but that is true about anything.

      Thank you very much. I’ve seen your picture around places, by the way, and it’s always cool to see a familiar, albeit internet, face.

      -Paul
