clovenbuttercup: (Prince Caspian)
Title: King of Hearts (1/2): Knave
Characters: Caspian X, Other(s)
Relationships: Edmund/Caspian
Setting: Prince Caspian
Notes: Filmverse, I suppose. This part is short; the second is rather longer.
Rating: T
Warnings: None
Summary: There was so much you longed to do the last time you had him here, but you weren’t comfortable or confident enough to make a move.

Something is different about how you behave towards Ed. )

clovenbuttercup: (Prince Caspian)

Title: Mistletoe
Warnings: None
Rating: T
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.

It’s the end of Yule, and Christmas is long gone; by rights everything to do with the season should be gone by now, too. )

Title: Lux
Rating: T
Archive Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Category: M/M
Relationship: Caspian/Edmund Pevensie
Characters: Caspian X, Edmund Pevensie
Notes: Filmverse.  Set during Prince Caspian, this deals with Caspian’s attempts to define exactly what part Edmund plays in his life and the fact he’s becoming more reliant on Edmund’s presence than is perhaps wise; arguably mildly AU.  In some ways this could be seen as a companion piece, of sorts, to And Light Shines In Darkness.  Lux is Latin, and translates as ‘light’.
Disclaimer: As always, any characters you recognise here belong to C. S. Lewis.
Summary: Who is Ed to you?

What is he, that you’ll not bear to lose him? )

clovenbuttercup: (Edmund)

Title: Simple
Rating: T
Setting: Prince Caspian
Character(s): Caspian X, Edmund Pevensie, Peter Pevensie (mentioned)
Pairing(s): Caspian X/Edmund Pevensie
Notes: Probably more book-verse than film-verse, although definitely film-verse casting (and reference to Peter’s characterisation from the film).  This explores how Edmund’s past life in Narnia and what happened to him then colour his experience second time around, and how he deals with this when acknowledging (to himself) how he feels about Caspian.
Disclaimer: Characters you recognise belong to C. S. Lewis.
Summary: For Ed, everything about this is simple.  Except everything that isn’t.

Given you’re spending your days trying to negotiate your way through a diplomatic nightmare, Caspian’s a distraction you don’t need. )

Title: Don't Let Me Go
Character(s): Caspian X, Edmund Pevensie
Pairing: Caspian X/Edmund Pevensie
Rating: T
Disclaimer: Characters you recognise belong to C. S. Lewis.
Setting: Prince Caspian.
Notes: This is a missing scene for A Riddle, Wrapped In A Mystery.
Summary: Caspian is about to discover that everything he thought he knew is about to change.

Things are almost perfect at this point, and you’re trying not to dwell on the fact it cannot last. )

Title: Rampart (Steadfast As An Anchor)
Character(s): Edmund Pevensie, Caspian X
Pairing: Caspian X/Edmund Pevensie
Rating: T
Notes: This fic was inspired by Psalm 31 and is almost entirely film-verse (implicitly for Prince Caspian and explicitly so for Dawn Treader), although the Dawn Treader section uses book timelines/dates for things like how long Edmund is aboard the ship.
Setting: Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The summary is a Nietzche quote.
Disclaimer: Characters you recognise belong to C. S. Lewis.
Summary: He who has a why to live for, can bear almost any how.

Be my rampart, my fortification. )

Title: A Riddle, Wrapped In A Mystery
Character(s)/POV: Caspian X, Edmund Pevensie
Pairing: Caspian X/Edmund Pevensie
Rating: T
Notes: My Narnia fic is a blend of film and book elements (broadly speaking this means film casting/setting, and book timelines/dates, unless otherwise specified). This starts during Prince Caspian, continues through the three (Narnian) years Edmund is away, and follows on into the events of Dawn Treader. The title refers to the Winston Churchill quote about Russia: "A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma."
Timeline: Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Disclaimer: Characters you recognise belong to C. S. Lewis.
Summary: Perhaps, to you, the Just King is destined to stay a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, for ever.

Finally, finally, finished!

Took a very long while to "get into" this book, and even after reading it I can't understand how Disney & Co. managed to get a two-and-a-half-hour film out of it.

I think I see the seeding, in this book, of Susan's eventual fate vis-à-vis her ability to see things without the evidence before her eyes, which I suppose makes sense but is also somewhat depressing.  Maybe she's an analogue for the doubting Apostle, Thomas?  Given the not-at-all-subtle Christian metaphors, who knows?

There's a bunch of stuff I need to revisit, but not yet.  I think I'll give the Disney film a try first.

Title: The Beginning Of Always
Character(s)/POV: Edmund Pevensie, Caspian X
Pairing: Caspian X/Edmund Pevensie
Rating: T
Notes: The setting of this straddles Prince Caspian and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and is a blend of film and book elements. Dates from the Dawn Treader sections are according to this timeline. The title is from a quote by Dante Alighieri: "Remember tonight... for it is the beginning of always."

How do you define a beginning? )

clovenbuttercup: (Caspian)

I'm just over halfway.

Still enjoying, which is just as well; if I'd been expecting to remember this book from my childhood then it'd be a washout. The dialogue style is very Lewis; it seems weird coming out of a child's [Caspian's meant to be about 12 here, isn't he?] mouth, but I rationalise it as it being like the TARDIS' ability to translate languages.

Just because the Narnians sound English, what's to say they're speaking it?
