There appears to have been a recent Wingfeatherpocalypse, and it seems there are only a few survivors! What I mean is: it has been really quiet and I feel like I am the only one left. (Excepting for a few others, and the mysterious librarian I have seen lurking in the shadows…)
People have busy lives, and often don’t have time to reply to a comment, or even to come look at the forum. So if no one replies then I understand. I feel like people slowly filter in and out of this site, and these books. These books have had an impact on everyone in this community. That’s what brings us together. I think there is plenty more to talk about in these books. Plenty more to discover. And more indiblible things to talk about. Like Christianity, people’s world views, water buffalo, and how those things tie into what Andrew Peterson has written.
I want to see how many survivors there are out there. In the words of Andrew Peterson, “We will survive”.
Tell me: Who is your favorite character? Who is the character you most relate to? Why? Are these two different? What was the greatest lesson you found in these books? Has that effected you in you daily life? If so, How?
Try and describe your veiw of God in 1 or 2 words.
Lets do some trading. Not of material things, but of stories.
Here is mine:
My favorite character is Artham or Nia. It is hard to make up my mind. Artham because of the struggle he went through, but yet he fought through it. And even in his own struggles he always watched out for others. Nia because of the noble courage she contained. And the love that she had for her children.
The character I most resonate with is Kalmar. Not because of his athletic ability (I hardly have any), or because of his way of getting into trouble, but because of the darkness he had hideen inside him after his fanging. I think Andrew was trying to show the evil that hides in people. He was also showing how, evil can seem to take you over unwilingly.
The greatest lesson that I learned from these books was one that I already knew, and it ties into why I relate to Kalmar. I was reminded that I am human. I make mistakes, and all I can do is ask for forgiveness, and help to overcome next time. I do try to apply this to my everyday life. I try to remember that I can overcome with God’s help, and remember that I do have God’s help. But somethimes, like Kalmar, I just loose it and I don’t realise it.
To me God is, Power and love. Or to put it in C.S Lewis’ words, “Good but not tame”

Hi, Nathan. I would say that my favorite character, or at least one of my favorites, is Sara Cobbler, because of her amazing courage. She inspires me to be a true leader, and do my best to share as much of God’s love as I can.
And As for my view of God, my two words would be “Divine Love”.

I can see by your name, that Sara Cobbler was a character that really inspired you! 😁 She really was like a light in a dark place! A leader at it’s best. Keep striving to be a leader like Sara! “Divine Love,” love it!

Maybe Kalmer: I would have given in as he did.
I think my favorite character is Arthum, thought I don’t really know why.
My two words to describe God, would probably be ‘perfect Father’, or ‘holy Father.’

Yeah, it’s amazing to know that in the end though, Kalmar did overcome all of that because of the Maker and the sacrifice of Janner. There’s got to be a lesson in there! It really is hard not to love Arthum! I love those words, perfect grace…

I think the character I relate most to would have to be Olumphia Groundwich (not the whiskers part). Sometimes I scare people, but when they get to know me I am actually a nice person. But still sometimes scary.
My favorite character is probably Arthram/Peet. He is an excellent example of how we are all broken, but the Maker’s Love makes us whole. And he’s always looking out for the Iggyfeathers.
The two words I would use to describe God would be “Perfect” and “Grace”. Put together, “Perfect Grace”.
