CoN Fan Fiction Rec
The movie being out got me into the mood of haunting my old Narnia Fans boards and questing for Aravis/Cor(Shasta) fic. I was rewarded. This is an incredible story. The writer imitates Lewis's cozy, cheerful style of story-telling splendidly and I love the way she handles the relationships between the characters. Prince Cor is such a delight in this story and you just want to give the boy a hug. Aravis is fantastic, exactly as I imagine her to be. Corin is just Corin. But it's really Queen Susan, even though she plays a peripheral role, that is amazingly characterised in this story.

Here it is: Someone Else's Story. The title is taken from this paragraph from the book:

I wish I knew that knight's name, for he must have kept me alive and starved himself to do it."
"I suppose Aslan would say that was part of someone else's story," said Aravis.

I just found this. This was probably the best Narnia fic I've ever read, about my favourite Narnia characters (and my only Narnia OTP!) in my favourite Narnia book and entirely free from the many many many varieties of Susanfail. I just had a wonderful half-hour reading it, so thanks!

Half an hour! Wow, that was fast. :) I am so glad that someone else enjoyed it and that my rec got the writer even one more reader. Perhaps it will encourage her to write more.
