Character(s): Caspian X, Edmund Pevensie, Other(s)
Relationships: Caspian/Edmund Pevensie, Caspian & Lucy Pevensie, Caspian & Susan Pevensie
Notes: Filmverse. We know from the book that the Pevensies leave Narnia before Caspian’s coronation; the film is rather more vague about how long they’re with him, but they’re there for the coronation. The coronation of a new British monarch happens approximately a year after they accede to the throne, and according to Wikipedia the preparations inside Westminster Abbey (where British monarchs are crowned) take five months. This implies the Pevensies were with Caspian after the Second Battle of Beruna for at least five or six months, which would allow Midwinter/Yule and Christmas to pass by. So by my thinking, this is not, technically, an AU.
Summary: You never do discover who’s responsible for smuggling it in, but you could kiss them for it.
