    Summary

    The Stone Gryphon is a sprawling Spare Oom story of war, espionage, immoral acts done in service of moral ends, natural history, dinosaurs, Alice in Wonderland, cunning corvids, tequila, D-Day, theology, spirituality, love and sex. If Dawn Treader can be on the wall of a spare bedroom in Impington, Narnia can be found in other places, too. The Friends of Narnia just have to learn where to look. And upon returning from Narnia, the Pevensies probably didn't just sit around waiting to die in a fiery train wreck.

    "No, no! The adventures first," said the Gryphon in an impatient tone: "explanations take such a dreadful time."
    L. Carroll, The Adventures of Alice In Wonderland

    "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
    Francis of Assisi

    "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.

    "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
    L. Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

    Summary

    "I don't think Lily nor James would be very happy if I did his courting for him," Remus said. He saw that Sirius' face was fixed into blank patience, and had a flash of desire to snarl and go for Sirius' throat, because he might at least understand that. "Look. There are comical farces written around your idea, and I'm not terribly keen on having Lily fall for me instead --"

    Summary

    Harry looks vaguely nervous, scratching the back of his neck. “It's a really long story,” he says finally, almost apologetically, “and it's really hard to believe.”

    “Try me,” Regulus says, more than a little daringly.
