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!

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. )

Oh my god, so, this is finally finished. I'm not sure how I feel about it—I mostly just resent that it's so absurdly long. I'm not sure if I've paid tribute to my favourite movie or done a disservice to it. But either way, here we go—the Skandar/Georgie/Will P. Dreamers!fic. In...four parts. *cowers* Apologies in advance for flist-spamming!


Title: one of us
Author: likecharity
Pairing: Skandar/Georgie/Will P.
Rating: Hard R
Warnings: Real person het and slash, semi-explicit underage sex (Georgie is fourteen), drug use.
Summary: There's just something about them—something that makes him want to do whatever they ask, something that makes him want to be their friend.
A/N: Based on The Dreamers. Some parts are heavily inspired, others not so much—this will still make sense if you haven't seen the movie or read the book. The song Georgie dances to is 'Compliments' by Bloc Party. There may well be a mistake or two in here that I haven't managed to catch because it's so long, please let me know if you pick up on anything.

(2/4) (3/4) (4/4)

So. I bought the Dawn Treader DVD and I probably should have waited for a two-disc special edition of some sort because IT KIND OF REALLY SUCKS. The special features are basically just deleted scenes and commentary with Michael and Mark, plus music videos that I don't care about. FAIL. >:(

I'll probably end up listening to the commentary anyway because I suppose they might tell some cute stories about the cast but it's nowhere near as good as actually hearing the cast interact themselves and I'M STILL REALLY CROSS/SAD ABOUT THIS OKAY, THE COMMENTARY IS MY FAVOURITE PART. There aren't even any behind the scenes things. Apparently there's more on the Blu-Ray or something? And from what I can tell there's going to be a special edition version at some point in the future, but. Sigh.

Well, I watched the deleted scenes tonight and took a few caps and thought I'd talk about them anyway.

Under the cut. )

In case you don't have the DVD yet and are avoiding spoiling it for yourself,

other things. )

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; georgie & will p.)
HEY so I kind of forgot about the fact that the Narnia cast might still be like, going to events and stuff. (Except Ben, obvs, with Killing Bono and everything.)

And then there were the Empire Awards and this heart-meltingly sweet moment occurred and I was all preoccupied with realising that I ship James McAvoy/Keira Knightley and like, duh, why did I not realise that before, and then I wanted to write them and part of my brain was like "Hey, you also wanted to write James with Ben?" and so it just added him into the mix, and I was like "MAYBE BEN WAS AT THESE AWARDS TOO" and decided to Google it for potential fic realism, and Google was like "No, but you know who was? Just Georgie and Will P., looking adorable and couple-y. Nbd."

And I was like OH YES, THEM. And they are adorable and couple-y, and also Georgie's shoes are the cutest. THEY SAY 'LET'S DANCE' ON THEM.



Moar. )


The end.

ONLY NOT, because then my brain had some more delayed realisations and WHAAAAT, JAMES AND GEORGIE WERE AT THE SAME EVENT AND THERE ARE NO PICTURES OF THEM TOGETHER, WHAT THE HELL, UNIVERSE? THAT IS NOT COOL.

I mean, they were at the same event, though. That's pretty cool. And I want to theorise about how that went down but wtf, I am legit writing James McAvoy/Keira Knightley/Ben Barnes??? SEND HELP.

...I feel like this entire post reads like something produced by the LJ Random Text Generator.

Edit: Oh my god you guys!

JAMES AND GEORGIE REUNITED: PICTURE PROOF )
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! )

Look at me, updating about the Narnia cast on New Year's Eve. TYPICAL.

Half an hour before midnight, even. I should probably get a life sometime in 2011.

But for now, look! There's new stuff.


Can we talk about how hard I'm shipping Ben/Will P. now? I DIDN'T MEAN FOR THIS TO HAPPEN but Ben is so adorable whenever he talks about him, he just GUSHES. He saw School of Comedy before it was even commissioned for a series—"I always knew he was brilliant." And lmao the voice he puts on imitating him. And also "he just deserves it, because he's such a lovely boy." HE'S SUCH A LOVELY BOY. Bennn.

Another Ben interview clip, a DAWN TREADER QUIZ with Skandar and Georgie, and some stuff about Georgie and Will P. on Blue Peter. )

I come bearing more Narnia randomness.

First of all, The Family Show Narnia Special, Part #2. (Part #1 is here but less interesting.) This is again mostly more of the same. Why is it that they decided to interview Skandar, Georgie, and Will P. as a group and Ben by himself most of the time? I remember with Prince Caspian, they split the Pevensies into pairs, and interviewed Ben by himself too. Poor Ben. It's such a shame too because I wanna see him interacting with them more. But maybe he had to do different times 'cause of the play, idk.

Anyway, the interviewer attempts to flirt with Skandar and Skandar is having none of it. HE'S FULFILLED HIS FLIRTING-WITH-MALE-INTERVIEWERS QUOTA ALREADY, CLEARLY. He is sliiightly less miserable-seeming in this interview than some of the others, though.

Under the cut: gifs, quote, picspam. )

CLICK FOR MY USUAL COMMENTARY AND OBSESSIVE QUOTAGE. )

Also I was looking through my past Narnia posts because I have no life, and stumbled across this conversation and promptly cracked up:

5th September 2008
[livejournal.com profile] likecharity: The Ben/Georgie thing squicks me out because the age gap is so giant and she's so young, but I think I could come around to it, idk. There really ARE no taboos in the Narnia fandom, it's fantastic. XD
[livejournal.com profile] starsimpulse: By the time Voyage stuff starts turning up, with all the caspain/lucy that I'm sure will be floating around, I'm sure ben/georgie will seem totally normal. I'm scared when that day comes but (creepily) excited, too.

AHAHAHA. Oh, that day has come. That day has definitely come. (Although—does it seem totally normal yet? I'm not sure. I've definitely come around to it, though...)
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; skandar & georgie)
So can we talk about this picture and how it is my new favourite picture of all pictures?

That might be a slight exaggeration but LOOK:



♥_♥ Look at Ben being all big-brotherly with his standing up and putting his hands on Skandar and Will's backs! And Skandar and Will's sort of awkward smiles! And Georgie just chillin' at the front looking all pretty. I think this is from the same photoshoot as a couple of others from before, and oh my god I want to see all of them and in high quality RIGHT NOW PLEASE.

More, random. )

PLUS I also have a whole bunch of random quotes I've taken from interviews because they were cute/amusing. And in the process of doing this I have totally lost track of sources, so it's a bit all-over-the-place, but...

...here you go, anyway. )

I have a bunch of videos to post too but THIS IS TOO LONG NOW and the videos deserve lots of attention, so they will come in separate post in a moment.
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: (celeb; tilda)
The website Trailer Addict has a whole bunch of Narnia videos. There are a couple of behind-the-scenes reels, and then some interviews. As usual my focus is mostly shallow...I am probably not the most informative news source in the world for this fandom but EVERYONE IS SO PRETTY AND IN LOVE.


This video starts with Caspian putting his arm around Lucy and walking off with her, then Edmund calling him back, and Caspian doing the same with him. IF THE WHOLE MOVIE IS THIS TOUCHY-FEELY I'M NOT SURE I'M GOING TO COPE. Caspian and Edmund's swordfight looks cooool. And also pretty hot. Woah, the water flooding into the bedroom looks AWESOME. Lol at them all flailing around. And lol at the dufflepuds scene.

Moar. )

So I kinda ran out of steam but there are a bunch more videos here—interviews, stuff from the premiere, and clips from the actual movie. EXCITEMENT: I HAVE IT.
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.
