And SSMBB was about a guy who joined the foreign legion and who - in the part we haven’t seen - returned looking a LOT worse for wear. Maybe homeless, definitely psychologically damaged.    My theory is that they left this out from the short film, in order to make it into a feature film, i.e. Samarkand. :)  I hope so, I really want to know what happened. by margret

Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum were ancient royal servants who shared the title “Overseer of the Manicurists in the Palace of King Niuserre.” The two men are depicted on their joint tomb in one of the most intimate poses allowed by Egyptian artistic conventions: face to face, with their noses touching. Niankhkhnum means “joined to life” and Khnumhotep means “joined to the blessed state of the dead;” together their names mean “joined in life and death.” by chandra

Important Facts About Complex PTSD- the symptoms of PTSD do not always completely map onto the experiences of people who have experienced chronic, repeated, or long-lasting traumatic events, such as childhood sexual and/or physical abuse, domestic violence, or captivity (such as being in a prisoner of war camp).When it comes to these events, the symptoms of PTSD do not really seem to completely describe the psychological harm, emotional problems, and changes in how people view themselves and the world following chronic traumatic exposure. Therefore, some mental health professionals believe that we should distinguish between the type of PTSD that develops from chronic, long-lasting traumatic events as compared PTSD from short-lived events. The diagnosis of "Complex PTSD" refers to the set of symptoms that commonly follow exposure to a chronic traumatic event by deirdre

This scene. This scene is so important, and I feel like no one ever talks about it. It’s so pivotal and fitting that Lucy is the last one to see Narnia, the one to close the door. Since it’s been said in interviews that The Silver Chair will be like a whole new franchise, this final goodbye to Narnia closes out the stories we’ve come to love. Lucy was the first to find Narnia, and her faith, hope, and light are such a central part of the series. She was present at Aslan’s death and resurrec by louisa
