Today was the day for reveals for the 2014 Narnia Fic Exchange and for NFE Madness, so let's talk about fic.

First off, I received the most gorgeous story:

As The Waves Make Towards The Pebbl'd Shore (3928 words) by rthstewart
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Caspian/Peter Pevensie
Characters: Caspian (Narnia), Peter Pevensie
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Time Shenanigans

Once you are dead, you cannot want wrong things anymore. Caspian wants another 5 minutes on a round world.

Ruth put so much care and effort into making this story perfect for me, and I just LOVE it! Peter/Caspian! My beloved OTP! Getting a chance at a happy-for-a-while, if not a happy ever after! It's perfect and sweet, and she used so much of my headcanon in this (Peter being a musician, and Caspian an artist!) and it just made me grin from ear to ear as I read it.

Okay, on to the fic I wrote.

Endless Roads to Travel, Endless Lives to Live (3353 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Polly Plummer
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe

Three adventures Polly Plummer never had, and two she gave to others.

This was written for [personal profile] redsnake05 for this prompt: I can't imagine Polly settling down to an ordinary life after her adventures. I'd be happy to see her back in England figuring out who she is and what she's doing, or perhaps a canon divergence where she and Digory get to have more adventures in Narnia or in other worlds. Perhaps there is a threat to the Tree during the Golden Age, and she and Digory get sent back to deal with it? Feel free to include other characters or OCs as needed.

I was so happy with this prompt! I have a lot of headcanon for Polly (OBVIOUSLY) and I always wanted her to have more adventures after The Magician's Nephew. Also, I didn't like that last glimpse of Polly we had in The Last Battle, so I wanted to write something that eased that a bit. I had SO MUCH FUN writing this. It could have been a lot longer, if I had more time - I wanted Polly to have a few more adventures - but as it was, it worked as a kind of five things fic: three adventures for Polly, and two that she had a hand in. I wanted to spend much more time on the day sorcery, because that was delightful to think about magical uses for. I feel like I could write a whole book about that. Maybe someday!

For NFE Madness I wrote a little ficlet for [personal profile] vialethe:

The World Spins Madly On (555 words) by Snacky
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis, The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Maglor/Susan Pevensie
Characters: Susan Pevensie, Maglor
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe, Crossover, Crossover Pairings

Just a quick ficlet of Susan Pevensie and Maglor living an eternal life

Because she loves Susan/Maglor and she's my partner in crime in crack ships. I had fun with this, because I love that ship too, and it's just fun to think of Susan and Maglor living forever with each other. I wanted to make this longer too, but oh, my terrible time management skills!

The Narnia Fic Exchange stories went live today. It's a week before the authors are revealed, and if you want to try to guess what story I wrote, I will write you a ficlet of your choice (fandom/pairing I am familiar with) if you guess correctly! Find the stories here! :D

And if you feel like trying your hand at some Narnia fic, you can participate in NFE Madness! Pick from the prompts here, and post your story to this collection. You have a week to write a story (or stories!) and post them, and there is no length requirement! They will be revealed next Sunday.

Yes, it's time for the annual NFE! If you want to write and receive a Narnia fic, you can sign up here. It's your standard fic exchange, minimum of 1000 words, and because it's the summer and we're lazy, you have a lot of time to write. :D

All the stories for this year's Narnia Fic Exchange have been posted, and the authors have been revealed!

I wrote A Parfit Gentil Knight (at AO3 for TastyAsItGets. She wanted a Game of Thrones crossover or an unlikely pairing. I tried the GoT crossover, but it wasn't very good, so she ended up with the unlikely pairing of Reepicheep/Susan. NO BESTIALITY, GUYS, I PROMISE.

I received the greatest story ever for my prompt: rise after a thousand years by [profile] ilysia_039. It's a gorgeous, vivid, terrifying story of Susan, the desert, and ancient magic. It is a story that is all at once fierce, wild, and about transformation and power and respect and it is exactly what I wanted.

I am biased, of course, because I mod the exchange, but we had so many great stories this year! We had a bunch of returning writers, and a lot of new ones, and they all did an awesome job with their prompts. You should check them out!

Title: A Parfit Gentil Knight
Possible Spoilers/Warnings: Assumes familiarity with all the books. Reepichceep/Susan romance – mostly one-sided and unrequited. A mix of bookverse and movieverse – book references, but uses events from the Prince Caspian movie.
Summary: Reepicheep always wanted to be a Knight of Narnia, in the service of the Gentle Queen.
Author's notes: Written for the 2012 Narnia Fic Exchange, for TastyAsItGets, who wanted "an unlikely pairing, something ridiculous like Puddleglum/Lady of the Green Kirtle, except not that." Thanks to Jess for the beta.

You know, it occurs to me that I didn't even post this in my own space, I was so busy advertising at other comms. So let's remedy that! :D
