Warnings: it’s a little abstract and vague at first for a reason—why it’s like this will make sense after you’ve finished it
Notes: A curious image that’s been in and out of my head today. Not quite fluff, but definitely happier than the angst I’ve been writing lately. xD



At night he dreams about her again.

She is not so far away for him not to be able to see that she is in that regal blue and white dress again—the one that makes her look like a queen—and he can’t but wonder a second time if there’s special meaning behind it.

This may very well come from the fact that everything—every little gesture, piece of clothing and spoken word—contains a hidden meaning crucial to life in the Telmarine court. Suspicion, after all, is only natural after living there for so many years.

But…somehow it’s not like that.

It’s a curious feeling that he gets about the dress more than anything. Like he hasn’t seen the last of it—despite the feeling of finality he cannot but help find associated with it—or of her.

He finds this to be a largely pleasant feeling, actually.

Despite this, he cannot shake the nagging thought that something is just not quite right about this whole scene, a thought that slipped his mind yesterday once he woke up. Only after he’s fully awake the next morning does it finally come to mind.

He’s never actually met her.

Thank you! :DD

I don't know where/how I thought of this--but I just did, and immediately I knew I just HAD to write it, because it'd be good. 8D

I think I'm going to continue this plot idea in a couple of drabbles, maybe. ^^

Oh wow.... I've never seen a sort of Caspian POV introspection like this. It's very unique, and that's what I love about it. That means it's meant to be, Caspian! So put the moves on her, fast.

Really? I must have had a really unique idea there for once, then. xD

And now I think I'm going to have to continue it somewhat or something in my other drabbles--I've just been getting so many plot bunnies from it. ;D

I'll come back when you call me: CoN - Susan and Caspian Kissdancing_in_time on January 8th, 2009 08:34 am (UTC)
This was such a unique take on Susan/Caspian. And very well-done! *Claps*

In fact, a part of me is jealous I didn't think of it first! XD
Lindsay: ben::rl::thoughtscatalyst283 on January 12th, 2009 03:08 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! :D

Tehee, don't worry about it. It was just such a random idea--I have no idea how/where I thought of it, honestly, but it seemed like a good idea at the time and thus I pursued it. :3

Oh, I like this one the best so far! I'm looking forward to more of your stories.

Thank you! :D I'm glad you enjoyed it.

My next drabble is coming in a couple of minutes...

Again, wonderful!

...And it's true, he really hasn't, technically...

Thank you! :D

He hasn't...but he will maybe in the next drabble. ;)

I tried not to make it seem one way or the other--I edited it a couple times just so it could make sense either way until the end. :D
pinknarnian717pinknarnian717 on January 13th, 2009 10:33 pm (UTC)
