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.
