This is simply a fun un-polished idea, but it's been a seed in my brain for a few years now. If Aslan of Narnia was/had a connection to a Valar or a Maiar of Middle Earth, who would he be or show patronage to? In both cases, they are the God characters who create their respective worlds with music. The ones that come to my mind are Nienna, Olorin(Gandalf), and Tulkas. Tulkas similarities: Golden-haired, physically powerful, laughing, evil fears him Nienna similarities: Wise, resurection, grieving Olorin similarities: Self-sacrificial resurected Christ figure, supports others through emotion(keeping up spirits), humble but strong Just curious if anyone has any other thoughts on this, or perhaps it has already been discussed elsewhere(Lewis + Tolkien course?). I know there are probably many theories out there about how Narnia and Middle Earth could be the same place somehow. This one is more of a fun head-cannon theory than reality, but the many connections of the Inklings makes it not all that crazy. I activated a poll to see if there is a concensus among Mythgard. Ideas?
