Title: the night starts here (8a/?)
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Will/Skandar/Anna
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Real person slash and het
Summary: They've been apart for much longer than this before, but not since they started sleeping together, and even though Will's still not sure how to define what they are to each other now, it's clearly added some further intimacy to their relationship that has made it a much bigger deal to be separated. And—judging by the way Will's heart is currently hammering away in his chest as though it's trying to break right out—it's made it a much bigger deal to be reunited, as well.
A/N: It has literally been four years since I updated this story. I am so so sorry. If you are still interested then I actually love you. I do. I especially love [livejournal.com profile] prunesquallormd for taking the time to beta this for me, thank you so much!! You can also read this here on AO3.

(Additional note: In this 'verse, the filming of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader takes place about a year earlier than it did in real life. This is because I wrote a lot of this before certain things had actually happened and am now constricted by a pre-existing timeline. The events of the story so far have taken part during summer 2008, and Dawn Treader begins filming only a few months after the premiere of Prince Caspian. Let's just say that everyone was SUPER ORGANISED in this 'verse and therefore filming didn't keep getting delayed?)

'I miss Skandar,' says Anna in a pathetic voice, pouting as she snuggles up closer to Will on the sofa. )

So I'm still having a lot of Narnia cast feelings. I'm not entirely sure where this came from. I have this theory that because there were about three years between each movie, it's a sort of biological clock thing? Like some part of me recognises that three years have passed and there has not been a Narnia fandom resurgence and so it's like. Psst. Hey. HEY. IT'S NARNIA FANDOM TIME.

Or something. Alternatively, as [livejournal.com profile] starsimpulse put it, "Narnia is like this old flame that you keep going back to for comfort and embarrassing sex."

Anyway I've been getting super nostalgic and missing the days of talking about the Narnia cast on LJ and then I kind of realised that I can still do that?? So this is going to be kind of an update post where I talk about what everybody is up to these days. Maybe? Let's see.

News about Anna, Georgie, Skandar, Will, Ben, and Will P. under the cut. Also pictures and screencaps and stuff. )

Okay I think that's everything? I mean it's probably not everything, but it seems like a reasonable summary.

Somehow I've ended up making gifs of the Prince Caspian DVD commentary on Tumblr, and in order to do that, I basically transcribed all the cute/funny/interesting parts of the commentary. I feel like since I went to the effort I should probably post all of that here, like I did for the LWW one a few years back! I always meant to do it because the only other post I'd made on the PC commentary was when I first listened to it and I don't think I went into much detail. And I'm really determined to try and drag as many people as I can back into this fandom with me.

Oh oh, also! The wonderful [livejournal.com profile] prunesquallormd finally finished his epic Lucy/Susan fic, With A Clouded View, and you should all go read it right away if you're interested in that kind of thing, because it's utterly lovely and he worked really hard on it for a really long time. ♥ Edit: I forgot to mention it's also on AO3, here!
hardparade: (narnia cast)
Okay seriously who can I drag back into Narnia fandom with me? Anyone??


Title: 'imagine your polyship' ficlets
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Various combinations of Ben/Will/Anna/Skandar/Will P./Georgie
Rating: PG
Warnings: Real person fiction.
A/N: I've just been trying to write Narnia RPF again and this seemed like a fun way to ease back into it. Inspired by the Tumblr imagineyourpolyship. I didn't realise 'til after I'd written these, but for the most part they could easily be seen as platonic!

Four silly little ficlets behind the cut. )
hardparade: (narnia; anna (as susan))
THIS IS AN ANNA POPPLEWELL APPRECIATION POST. (Mostly.)

She did a photoshoot for THAT magazine, which isn't actually out yet, but there are behind-the-scenes pictures from it which are gorgeous.



Original + more. )

In other news, I've been watching a ridiculous amount of TV. I'm watching Game of Thrones and The Borgias, and generally enjoying both. Game Of Thrones, I'm less sure about—some of it really disturbs me, and I know that's kind of the point, but I just feel kind of nervous and uncertain about it. But I do like it! It gets like +1000 points for the incest and the slash. I really like The Borgias a lot—shipping Cesare/Lucrezia, obviously, and generally enjoying François Arnaud's face, and also there was consensual whipping which I approve of. I find the Cesare/Michelotto relationship really interesting. And now I want to read A Song of Ice and Fire and lots of books about the Borgia family, but I still suck at reading lately.

I'm also watching Camelot which, um, is not so good. I don't know, maybe Arthurian legend shows just don't do it for me, but it's just kind of boring, and really at this point I'm only watching for Eva Green and her OVERALL AWESOMENESS, being all crazy and powerful. (Also maybe a little bit for Jamie Campbell Bower.) What else? Baffled by the Fringe season finale, and growing increasingly concerned about the state of House (and also suddenly shipping Chase/Thirteen, where did that come from??). Rewatching the first season of The O.C., because I kept seeing stuff on Tumblr and getting nostalgic. I got so much of my music taste from that show back in the day, it's amazing—at least twice an episode, I'll be like "hey, I like this song!...oh, this is where I first heard this song."

In the past week or so I've also been marathoning Community and Parks & Recreation and wondering why I didn't do that sooner. SO GOOD, YOU GUYS. I don't actually laugh out loud that often at TV shows, and it's not like I don't find them funny, but it's more like...I appreciate the clever writing and I'm amused, but I'm not actually cracking up, you know? But both of these shows have been making me laugh regularly. Especially the flu episode of Parks & Rec. My Dad actually came in and asked me what was wrong because I was laughing so hard. "I can't go home! I have to get ready for the Chamber of Secrets!" "...Commerce." SPEAKING OF WHICH: I love Ben Wyatt. Can we talk about Adam Scott and his delightful face?

Can we talk about any of this, actually? I've basically just been sitting here watching all this TV and not really talking about it.

AND FINALLY, a meme which could be fun maybe if anyone is interested:

Mini-DVD Meme: Pick any paragraph or any passage of between 500-600 words from any fanfic I've written and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet of what I was thinking when I made or wrote it, why I wrote it, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the fic, and anything else you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

My masterlist is here but I guess if you pick something I wrote ages ago I might not remember what I was thinking at the time. :/
hardparade: (narnia; anna & georgie)
LAST NIGHT, THE NATIONAL MOVIE AWARDS HAPPENED. I was unaware of this until I got a text from [livejournal.com profile] moogle62 informing me that Georgie was there, so thanks for that Moog, and then I went to sit through the whole cringeworthy thing and it was pretty much worth it, because not only was Georgie there, but Anna and James were too. :D

It makes me sad that there are no pictures of them together, but maybe it'll be like the Empire Awards and one will show up later. Either way, they were at the same event so I'm sure they got a chance to catch up. And Georgie brought her sister Rachael again—I like that she's been doing that lately, it's sweet. I'm clearly getting kind of lazy with my pairings though because when I consider like, fic based around this event I'm just like "...eh, foursome?" *hangs head*



More. )

Also, some other random stuff. )
hardparade: (narnia; anna (as susan))
This is like, a Narnia updates megapost type thing. Only not particularly mega. It's just a few bits of news that I've been meaning to post.

Although before I get to that, I want to let you guys know that I'm having some laptop issues and am basically getting the blue screen of death at completely random moments. D: I've already had to do a full reinstall of Windows, and it's been like four days of computer stress so far. So if it's taking me a while to reply to comments/emails or read your fic or something, I'm not ignoring you, just having difficulties. ♥

Right, so Ben and Will P. did a little bit of promotion for the DVD release.



More, plus news of Will and Anna. )

I feel like I've forgotten something, but I'd better just hurry up and post this before my laptop blue screens again. :(
hardparade: (narnia; skandar (pc))
I feel like it's a good time for me to do that meme where you post snippets from unfinished fic that you have lying around. I have eleven, some are ones I'm currently working on, and some are completely stalled and/or ancient and I feel like they may as well be shared.

All Narnia RPF, not surprisingly! There's a whole bunch of pairings, and ratings vary but go up to NC-17. Anything else worth warning for is specified in the heading above the extract.


1. Skandar/Ben/Georgie – ha, this is literally all I have for this. There was a prompt on the kink meme about Skandar and Georgie teaming up together to seduce Ben, and…that was relevant to my interests.
"He's bisexual," Skandar snaps, "we both have a chance."

"He likes girls better," Georgie fires back.

"Legal girls, maybe," Skandar retorts, and Georgie pouts at him.

+10 under the cut! )
hardparade: (narnia; georgie (green))
It took me like four tries to pick my mood for this entry, because I recently went back to my LWW moodtheme and all the moods I tried at first had pictures of bb!Georgie, and it seemed inappropriate. ...Not that choosing a picture of bb!Skandar was appropriate, but whatever. I sense I'm going to have this problem regularly.

Also, apologies (not that anyone will care probably) for any other pairing undertones in this fic, it's my first ensemble one in a while and there was a little part of my brain going "EVERYONE'S THERE. WRITE AN ORGY. GO ON, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO."

ANYWAY, PORN.

Title: do it like a brother (do it like a dude)
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Anna/Georgie
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Real person femslash, strap-on sex?
Summary: "Anna's having a sexuality crisis," Skandar informs Will. "She wants some girl-on-girl action."
A/N: I basically just wanted to write lesbian!Georgie in a suit, seducing Anna at a premiere. It was supposed to consist entirely of that, but then it got bogged down by cute cast banter for several thousand words. PWP: I fail at it. Also, title from 'Do It Like a Dude' by Jessie J, 'cause it seemed appropriate?

There are many surprises in store for Anna Popplewell at the premiere of The Silver Chair. )
hardparade: (narnia; group)
So this is a thing that Ben said:
Will things change between the Pevensie children and Caspian?
Ben: The Pevensies are a very tight group and that doesn't change. But now I play the role of big brother/uncle. In fact, in real life their Mums (Georgie's, Skandar's and Will P.'s) call me "Uncle Ben" because if someone wants to go to a water park or the like, it's me who has to take them. It's a good work atmosphere.
That's one of those things that SHOULD make all the Ben shipping feel incredibly creepy, but somehow it doesn't. For me, anyway. How is it that I can like his uncle role and still want to write about him having sex with them all? NARNIA CAST, YOUR INCESTUOUS FAMILY DYNAMIC IS SO CONFUSING SOMETIMES. I feel like I need a 'ben/everyone' tag, what even, how did this happen?

There isn't much new stuff around at the moment, so I think we should take a look at some old quotes from LWW and Prince Caspian times instead. Just because I found them and hadn't read some of them before, and wanted to share.

Under the cut. )

OKAY ANYWAY BACK TO WRITING FIC. Not entirely sure what the point of this post was. I leave you with a gif of Ben and Will failing at subtlety:

hardparade: (narnia; ben & georgie (london premiere))
YOU GUYS. YOU GUYS. A VIDEO OF BEN TALKING ABOUT GEORGIE GROWING UP. THIS IS RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS.


"Yeah, it's amazing, she was a little—I mean, I didn't see her when she was a little, little girl doing LWW, but she was still just a little girl, and now she's, like, (SIGNIFICANT LOOK) really sort of growing into a woman. She came to see my play, actually, in the West End (stammers) last night, and then she was there sort of clapping at the end all proud, and it was...it was really sweet." HE ALMOST LOOKS SORT OF TEARY-EYED FOR A SECOND THERE. OMG. AND SHE SAW THE PLAYYY. I just. Shipshipship. ANALYSE THIS WITH ME, PLEASE.

Ben talking about Georgie's various on set injuries, Ben and Will (M) talking about who they want to kiss under the mistletoe, the cast talking about their very first roles, Ben and Liam talking to each other, and Skandar and Georgie talking about various things including whether or not they see each other as siblings. )
hardparade: (narnia; georgie (bow & arrow))
I SAW DAWN TREADER TONIGHT.

HEARTS. HEARTS IN MY EYES, YOU GUYS.

I am sitting here now with a mug of cocoa all teary-eyed and smiling to myself. I don't know why these movies have such an effect on me, they just do. Something to do with how much the fandom means to me, combined with the fact that I've basically grown up with the movies (moreso than the books even, through my teenage years at least). Idk. They just make me so happy.

When we came out of the cinema, though, my Mum did say "Did it live up to your expectations?" and I realised that it would have been pretty difficult for it not to. Not because my expectations were low, obvs, but because it would have been impressive if they'd managed to disappoint me. I kiiind of love everything they do, so. I'm not the best impartial judge.

I also spent at least half of the movie just mentally drawing hearts around everybody and gazing in wonder at how pretty (and in love) they all are. SO PRETTY. (AND IN LOVE.)

I think with Prince Caspian, I waited til I'd seen it twice before attempting to make a coherent post about it, but...I don't know when I'm going to get to see it again and I'm still on a high.

So here is my attempt at a review-type thing. And it has spoilers. And is kinda longer than I meant for it to be. )

Okay...I'm sure I've forgotten like thirty more things. BUT THIS IS A REALLY LONG POST ALREADY, SO. IDK. IF YOU'VE SEEN THE MOVIE, PLEASE SQUEE WITH ME. THERE IS MUCH SQUEEING TO BE DONE.
hardparade: (narnia; skandar & georgie & will p)
GEORGIE DID A PHOTOSHOOT FOR FLAUNT MAGAZINE AND IT IS SLIGHTLY ODD BUT ALSO CRAZY GORGEOUS:



IS EVERYONE ELSE SEEING THIS RIGHT NOW. WE ARE ALL GOING TO GO TO JAIL HOW PRETTY IS SHE.

+3 more. )

The actual point of this post was going to be all the Narnia randomness I've been gathering up from the past few days, but then those pictures turned up and I lost track of what I was doing.

I do still have a bunch of other pictures, though, and gifs, videos, quotes, etc. THE USUAL. )

Aaand finally, I had this crazy idea for a Skandar/Georgie/Will P. fic based on the movie The Dreamers, with Skandar and Georgie as Theo and Isabelle, and Will P. as Matthew. And I'm already discussing it with [livejournal.com profile] starsimpulse who is being AWESOME, but if anyone who's seen the movie has any input, I would be very happy to discuss further. :D You can read the comment discussion thread here. IT'S REALLY WEIRD, I KNOW, BUT IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE IN MY HEAD.
hardparade: (narnia; will p (sunglasses))
I forgot how when the Narnia fandom gets going, hardly a day passes without there being something for me to post.

[livejournal.com profile] harmonyalr very kindly alerted me to these videos from a recent Dawn Treader press conference, and I thought I'd share. You can watch part one here and part two here, on a site hilariously called "Hollywood Jesus".

The highlight is probably when they're talking about keeping mementos from the film and Ben says he asked if he could keep Will P. And then Will says he asked if he could keep Ben. Why yes, that IS all it takes for me to start slashing them, why do you ask? But...so adorable.

More quotes & commentary under the cut. )

There's also some more inexplicably entertaining pictures of them all meeting the Queen.

Hosted by imgur.com
Seriously, these are COMEDY GOLD to me for some reason. Who is Joe McElderry making eyes at here? Will??

The rest under the cut, plus a few videos from the premiere too. )

I bet that two hours after I post this, something new is going to show up. I'M SORRY IF I'M SPAMMING YOUR FLISTS, HERE. You know this is how I get around Narnia time.
hardparade: (narnia; will & skandar & anna (dt))
There are still a few stray pictures from the Dawn Treader premiere showing up and so I picked my favourites to post.

Hosted by imgur.com
For some reason, it makes me really happy to see the Wills standing next to each other.

+9. )

I also made a bunch of icons from the premiere pics, which is random because I hardly ever make icons these days. I think I was inspired by all the beauty. Every single icon has Georgie in it. WHAT, SHE STOLE THE SHOW, OKAY. Anyway, comments & credit are nice, you know the deal.

Previews:



+18. )

In other news, would anybody be interested in a gifspam of all the various debauchery from Dorian Gray? Not that I...made the gifs in question, or anything. *shifty eyes* Just, you know. Out of curiosity.

And btw, imgur is my new favourite image host now. TAKE THAT, PHOTOBUCKET.

DAWN TREADER PREMIERE DAWN TREADER PREMIERE DAWN TREADER PREMIERE

Okay so I'm gonna just continually update this post with new pictures. EXCITEMENT.

SKANDAR IS WEARING A BOWTIE, YOU GUYS. HE IS NOT WEARING A PICNIC BLANKET OR CONVERSE. HE'S WEARING A SUIT AND A BOWTIE.



MORE. )

DID I MENTION THAT THERE IS FIC IN THE COMMENTS. [livejournal.com profile] thisissirius is amazing and managed to contain her excitement enough to actually put coherent sentences together in the form of stories. Will/Skandar, Skandar/Anna, Will/Anna(ish), Will P. gen, and Ben/Georgie. ♥
hardparade: (narnia; georgie & will p.)
I had no internet access for a little while because I moved house (yeah...again), and then went to visit my sister for Thanksgiving. And then I came back and got online and there were more Narnia things. :D And the premiere is tomorrow and it's all so exciting and I missed this fandom so much. ♥



Pictures of Georgie being pretty at the British Academy Children's Awards. )

Also some random extras of Georgie and Will P. from that ice palace thing. )

Aaaand a couple of video featurette thingies on the movie. )

Also, I'm not a fan of the way Photobucket looks now. Putting this together took me longer than it should have. I hate it when websites change perfectly functional layouts for no apparent reason and then everything's all hard to find. >:( I think maybe I just dislike change in general.
hardparade: (narnia; will & skandar & anna)
BE STILL MY HEART.



Oh my god, oh my god. So prettyyyyy. Look at them looking at each other! And with their arms all linked like that awwwwww. What scene is this from? I don't even care. They look so perfect together. ♥

These are from a new theatrical trailer for Dawn Treader, btw, which is AWESOME:



I think this one has impressed me the most so far. Everything looks so epic and beautiful and I can't waaaait. We should also maybe talk about the fact that I was just hit by the sudden realisation that I might ship Edmund/Jadis WHERE DID THAT COME FROM, THIS FANDOM MAKES ME SHIP EVERYTHING.

Cut for Ben/Georgie stupidness. )

I genuinely don't think I'm physically able to write all of the fic I've got ideas. AND IT'S ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE WITH THE RELEASE OF THE MOVIE. But I can't wait.

Man I haven't even gotten out of bed and had breakfast or anything yet. THIS IS WHAT THIS FANDOM DOES TO ME. I should go start my day.

YOU KNOW WHAT'S GOOD FOR WRITERS' BLOCK?

THIS:

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays.
You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble
You start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

Even when you're terrible at drabbles.

Title: Drabble Meme #2
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Ben/Georgie, Will/Skandar, Anna/Georgie, Ben/Anna, Skandar/Will P, and gen
Rating: It varies, but up to about PG-13
Warnings: Real person slash, het and femslash. D/s in one, voyeurism in one...vampirism in another?
A/N: Just an attempt to break my writers' block, using the fandom I'm most familiar with. :) I pretty much followed the rules apart from about a week's break in between the 8th and 9th drabbles, just because I got totally stumped. Also, each drabble has a link to download the song it was inspired by.

I sort of love being let loose on this fandom and all its possibilities. )
hardparade: (narnia; anna)
ANNA POPPLEWELL WAS AT A PREMIERE OF SOMETHING OR OTHER AND SHE LOOKED PRETTY. Obviously.



Full picture, and +2. )

NICE FACE. AND LEGS. And pretty much nice everything. I need to get back to writing The Night Starts Here. I need to get back to writing in general. And posting in general.

But right now my Mum is in Istanbul (idk exactly why) and my sister is here to keep me company and we are busy marathoning Fringe and drinking various types of cheap peach-flavoured alcohol from Aldi. DON'T JUDGE.
