Because I'm slow at these things, I'm just now finally moving into my apartment. I'm not yet one with the internet there though so my internet presence will be minimal for the next few days or (god forbid) week. I also have an exam tomorrow which came out of fucking NOWHERE and was like BAM! and anyway, that's not going to be fun.

And and and some REALLY AWESOME person has volunteered to help me with a Narnia fandom newsletter, so look for that soon at [ profile] the_narnian! (Uh, also in Narnia news, I made the layout art over at [ profile] narniarecs. Yay!)

I also finally made a Sarah Connor icon I was satisfied with. It took like ten minutes which is embarrassing because I have like three million aborted efforts lying around in a folder somewhere, most of which I spent at least half an hour on.

Guys I just read in an interview that Skandar is atheist. This makes my godless heart happy. So! PICTURES:

This one I am totally posting a) outside the cut and b) for Anna's face, which is awesome:

I love how Ben is like totally checking her out or something and Skandar is making this weird face that could be either "she's mine!" or "get your spastic awkward hands off my movie-sister!" or any number of other things really and then Anna is just like "shhyeeeaaaaaah, I'm awesome."

In case you think Ben is not spastic and awkward, I have photographs that will prove you wrong. )

Summary: Peter uses Caspian as an Edmund substitute, Caspian uses Susan as a Peter substitute, and they all angst a lot.
Why I like it: omg, Ed/Peter, Peter/Caspian, and Caspian/Susan. That's ALMOST ALL of my Narnia ships, all in the same fic! Plus I'm a sucker for Narnia angst where they were sexx0ring it up when they were kings and queens but had to stop when they went back to England.

Summary: The day that William gets a car is the day that changes Skandar's life forever.
Why I like it: Uh, Will and Skandar have sex in a car? Basically. It's hysterically funny and I squealed out loud at several parts.

You know what the most ridiculous thing about all of this is? Generally I can't stand incest OR rps. But in Narnia fandom, it's all I want to read! Incest, RPS, INCESTUOUS RPS, whatever! The more wrong and ridiculous, the better!

Also, it's sad that there's not an active Narnia newsletter (at least that I can find). I want to start one up but... it seems like a lot of work and I don't know how. Help!

20th-May-2008 10:05 am - prince caspian! so amazing!
So, I don't know how many of you have cottoned on to this, but I adore the Narnia books and always have. Prince Caspian is my favorite, followed by Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and Caspian himself has always been my favorite character (other than Tumnus). So seeing the movie was AWESOME. I liked the first movie quite a bit but this one was way, way better.

I liked the way they handled Susan. I wasn't really taken with her in the books or the first movie, but I liked her in this one. I liked that she gave a fake name to that geeky boy. I liked that she liked Caspian, and that Lucy and Ed kind of made fun of her for it. I liked that she ran a little slower than the boys but with just as much enthusiasm. I liked that she fought different, but not worse. I liked that she was constantly in the thick of things with Peter and Caspian, even though she was wearing a skirt. There were so many things that could have gone wrong with her character that didn't. I was so, so pleased by this.

I was fond of the bits of Susan/Caspian romance they threw in. Mainly because I like to look at Ben Barnes looking longingly at people, but also because I think they may have been setting it up so that Susan's fate in The Last Battle (if they ever get that far!) makes sense (though I hope they'll bend canon to bring her through to Narnia in the end, even if it's in a post-credits tag).

I'm still way in love with Ben Barnes, William Moseley, and Skandar Keynes. That Caspian had that Telmarine accent confused me at first because Barnes didn't sound like that in Stardust, which I have seen approximately seven million times. Partially because Ben Barnes is pretty, but also because Robert de Niro swishing about in frilly dresses is Good Times.

OH! And Damian Alcazar as one of the Telmarine lords! I loved that! I had no idea he was in this movie -- well, in ANY English-language movies, really -- so I was thrilled to see him. He should be in every movie.

Now I want Peter/Susan/Caspian fic but the Narnia comms that I've found don't seem to have any. Damn.

Also I cried repeatedly during the movie, just like I do during the book.

I'm sorry for the spam if you have this journal and [ profile] iconzero friended... but I have to show off this wallpaper I made:

prince caspian wallpaper of awesome!

pretty pretty pretty!

There is, of course, other stuff posted over there, but this is the pièce de résistance. Everything else was just thrown together because I was playing with my ridiculous new screencaps, whereas this had a purpose.

8th-Dec-2007 08:38 pm - i'm in love with prince caspian

Prince Caspian is my favorite character from The Chronicles of Narnia, and Prince Caspian is my second-favorite book in the series (after The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which has the most brilliant opening sentence* of any book in existence). So I'm pretty pleased by a) there being a movie of it and b) Caspian being the hottest motherfrakker in the thing. IT WILL BE EPIC.
