I ... have written my first-ever** fanfic, about one of my favorite moments in Voyage of the Dawn Treader (actually, one of my favorite moments in the whole Chronicles of Narnia)--the moment when Lucy sees the Sea Girl in the Last Ocean. The story is from the Sea Girl's perspective. It's very short. Thanks to [personal profile] osprey_archer for a read-through and advice on posting!

[ETA: In my rush to post I, um, neglected to include a link to the story. Here it is! Sorry about that--it's kind of hilarious to post an announcement like that and then not remember the link -_-]

And here are some beautiful examples of seagrass for you to look at, to accompany the story.

**Actually I did once write a piece of fanfic earlier. I was in seventh grade, and it was for Space 1999.

This is the pure truth of fanworks. :)

That sounds lovely (I love that moment). Can it be found at AO3? [edit] Never mind, found, although if there is a link in this post, I am totally missing it.

I love those books, and that moment in that particular one. (Puddleglum is one of my favorite characters in fiction.) I can't wait to read the Chronicles of Narnia to Sprout, but they are among the books I still have to retrieve from my MIL's place. Did you read them to your kids, and if so, did you read them in the published order or chronologically according to the story?

And story: Where can I find yours? :P

Since I too read them in published order, I can't imagine the connection my kids would or wouldn't have if I switch it up. How can anyone not love TLtWatW? I think that Sprout might find the Uncle in the Magician's Nephew a bit too ick for her liking, and they have seen the TLtWatW movie and have an abridged version of the book read to them, so I just might start from there. :)

I loved your story and seeing the encounter from both sides. It is magical when someone gives you a glimpse into how a scene can play out from another perspective.

Oh, that's gorgeous. I loved it so much. This is what fanfic is for. (All right, one of the many things, but it's what I hope for when I read fanfic, a transcendant moment implied but not fully produced by the canon.)

like Kay attaching his sled to the Snow Queen's sleigh

This is a beautiful image - and just right for describing the way it feels to write fanfics for certain kinds of works.

It took me years to work up the nerve to write a fic for The Changeling, because... it's The Changeling! It's such a beautiful sleigh!

That's possibly my favorite moment in the entire series as well. It's just so human and beautiful.
