Author has written 20 stories for Chronicles of Narnia, Merlin, and Jane Eyre.
Dear Unsuspecting World:
I have been unleashed upon FF.net.
What was initially an innocent indulgence in reading well-written fan-fiction has now morphed into something far worse; I am actively writing for Narnia, Merlin, and have even started an original novel.
Now. Despite the nefarious nature of my writing (here, I use the word "writing" loosely), there is a code that I have recently adopted, and that is to challenge my readers; I do not believe in stooping to the lowest standard. I do not think that I should write anything that simply pours drivel over readers like some superfluous syrup. I am going to write plot and I am going to write plot that is grossly complicated.
Readers (good readers) flock to FF.net. I've seen them. They look for context clues and admire metaphors and go absolutely giddy over symbolism. Yes, dear reader, you're probably even one of them- that means that what I write is meant for you. I pray that you will enjoy reading my writing, because I sure do enjoy writing it.
Also, if you'd like to see fanart for P.E, MonkeySaru has taken the liberty of illustrating the Aslan and Edmund scene from chapter five here:.

An Explanation of the Gifts (P.E Verse)
Peter has the pleasure of representing the two parts of mankind: flesh and spirit. Without Aslan, Peter is in danger of falling into a sort of beast mentality. He becomes savage, merciless, and childlike. If you've watched Prince Caspian you'll have seen the beginning warning signs that he has started to "forget Aslan." His territorial temper, impatience, and carelessness with his family are all baby steps towards his insanity.
This insanity has only taken over Peter three times in his life. Once at the Battle of Beruna, when he fought the White Witch. A second time when Ogres invaded and injured Edmund. The third time is in "P.E."
Another note of interest: Peter's siblings refer to that insanity as "Other Peter" or just Other. Peter never remembers anything he's done while he becomes Other, i.e, Peter doesn't remember fighting the White Witch. It falls to Edmund, after the second appearance, to sort out what's happening to his brother.
Susan takes on the verses about seeking and finding. Once she sets her heart on locating something, clues appear before her almost like magic. In Narnia, where all the Gifts are stronger, Susan was even capable of closing her eyes and knowing exactly where something or someone was.
The key is, she has to want to seek first. Susan's character rarely searches independently. Her siblings dragged her into finding Narnia, into exploring Narnia, and into staying in Narnia. She has very little to do with seeking out new adventures. This, of course, changes after the events of "P.E."
Another note of interest: Susan actually uses the watered-down verse of her Gift in "P.E" to locate Lucy at St. Finbar's. Her Gift's potential, like all the Gifts, grows stronger the closer she becomes to Aslan.
Edmund's Gift comes from the Proverb, "A king winnows out evil with his eyes." In Narnia, Edmund could look into the eyes of an enemy and see their misdeeds as if through their own eyes. Also, in the event that an enemy intends harm on any of Edmund's siblings, a terrible Feeling would begin in his gut like an alarm. It comes in handy much more often than one would wish.
This Gift, like all of the Gifts, is Aslan-sent, first appearing in chapter five of "P.E." The only catch is that in England, it becomes only a muddled feeling of panic. Edmund also doesn't often know the who, what, or when of a pending disaster before it happens.
Point of interest: This Gift is the most prominent in "P.E" Edmund's Gift was the first one to manifest itself- at his eleven-year-old birthday and with a character that hasn't appeared for a while in Monochrome.
Lucy's Gift is premonition, plain and simple. She has dreams where Aslan warns her of what she needs to do to prepare for the future. In Monochrome, Lucy warns Edmund that he needs to protect Peter after she has a vivid dream. It is not until much later that they fully develop, or even become a routine experience.
In England, these dreams are reduced to obscure and symbolic events. The most prominent of these takes place in "P.E", when she dreams about a Fox, a Lion, and an Asp. The entire prophecy is not fulfilled for many years, before which Lucy's final prophecy is written down and saved for Susan.
Point of interest: In Prince Caspian, Lucy has one of her vivid dreams about moving trees and Aslan warning her that nothing happens the same way twice.
