Default Bism

Soon there was a flourishing trade between Narnia and Bism via the Vent. The Narnians tasting diamond juice and the Gnomes trying overworld fruits and vegetables, as well as the existing mushroom trade continuing to grow.
The Narnians found that the diamond juice tasted partly like drinkable light and partly like drinkable hardness, the gnomes said that when it was fresher it tasted less of the hardness and more of fire. The overworld fruits, the gnomes said tasted of cold, which they enjoyed when they were working close to the River of Fire, and the salamanders apparently developed a taste for overworld grains.

"Drinkable hardness": I like that! So it's like HARD cider?

Or would fermented diamond juice be 'diamer'?

It was later that Caspian the eldest son of Mrileen Duchess of Lantern Waste and second child of King Edmund II, who inherited his namesake's urge to explore, decided to decend the Vent and visit Bism.
With him went a dwarf, a half-dwarf, a talking lizard (they weren't many in Narnia) and a mouse, Reepicheep II, descended from Peepiceek I, brother of Reepicheep I.
“For we mice,” said he “are adaptable creatures. We can go forth into cold, or desert, or sea voyage, or decend to the fires of Bism.”

Half-Dwarf? With whom do you envision Narnian Dwarfs intermarrying? Tolkienian Dwar-VES are big enough to take human-size wives; or at least Tauriel thought so. But I think Mister Lewis conceived his Dwar-FS as too small to mix well genetically with humans. Now, if Narnia had some Hobbits, that would work out.

In PC there were already half-dwarves. Dr Cornelius was one.
"I'm not a pure Dwarf. I have human blood in me too."

(Admittedly, it is hard to picture how a match like that would work in practice.... Dr. Cornelius mentions the Dwarves using high heeled boots, but I'm not quite sure that would fool most people. At least if the Pauline Baynes illustrations are right about the Dwarves' normal size.)

That's right, I forgot about Cornelius! But the size dilemma still remains-- for reasons I'm not allowed to bring up here on TDL!
