Wonderful. The kings are a mixture of adult and child and Oreius is an adult without making the story unnecessarily dark. Just a wonderful little scene, fleshing out the Narnians in a lovely way.

This is beautiful. A good look at Oreius, and the Narnaians in general.
And that you gave the Rhinoceros a name...means a lot.

FF isn't letting me sign my reviews properly for some reason, but it's MissShakespeare72. This is absolutely brilliant and shows perfectly the relationships between the boys and Oreius and their officers. It's beautiful and spectacularly well-written.

For some reason, some of the best oneshots I've read have been from Oreius' view. Coincidence?

Well howdy. HarmonyLover recommended your stories to me so expect to see a lot of me - I'm one of those annoying serial reviewers. I've only just re-discovered Narnia twenty years after my introduction to it as a child and I'm told yours are wonderful additions to the canon universe I have just reacquainted myself with. For what I've seen thus far, that is true. Wonderfully written, delightfully innocent (the boys playing chase after learning how to wield deadly weapons) and certainly better than algebra.

I love it! Especially all of your fics, they're all so wonderful, because its as if you know how they would do things in certain situations, and you've adapted it into something so wondrously understandable to people of the 2000's. But yeah, I loved!

Perfection. Absolute perfection.
I had heard of your works before and have read them all, but I had never managed to quite gain the courage to review.
I think that, now that I've seen how receptive this community is, I have the courage. So I am going to review.
I loved this.
It was funny, entertaining, true to canon, and definitely better than algebra.
Please, never stop writing, for if you stop, the world will have lost an invaluable asset.

Love the interaction between Oreius and Peter and Edmund. And, the comment about shields and the boys' groans just gave me a plot bunny for why my MC will not use shields inspite of Oreius' training and how she won that particular argument. So thank you for the inspiration!

Ok, I have read all your Narnia stories, and just now going back to leave reviews. Yes, I am one of those terrible people...I hardly even manage to leave reviews for my friend's stories who I beta for, shame! Narnia was my first great Fantasy obsession (when I was 10) and your stories have made me fall in love with it all over again. The books were great for my ten year old self, though when I last reread them (I believe when I was seventeen) I was wanting something...more. The Last Battle is my favorite book, simply because it had more of that...more (I dunno if that makes any sense). But your stories have the more I wanted, and I am so glad I found them.
On this story in particular: a fantastic introduction to Oreius, and a lovely glimpse at the dawn of the Golden Age. It is really nice to see how love and respect are established.

"And Oreius knew that he must never, never underestimate them, children though they may be."
I've read "Blessed" a few times, but this time that particular line stuck out to me. It shows so much of what I love about Narnia, as well as revealing a lot about Oreius's and Celer's characters. They takes the Pevensies seriously even though their new kings and queens are children. Instead of wondering why on earth Aslan sent them four children to reclaim and rule Narnia, Oreius and Celer trust Aslan absolutely and know that they have been blessed. I love that.

I'm now completely in love with your stories.
| Desertfyre chapter 1 . 1/6/2011
Beautiful story! I loved it! Short yet sweet... D

Ai, I am so glad I decided to look at your profile once I got an alert for Were It Not For You. I had forgotten how much I admired and absolutely loved your writing, and have resolved to make my way through reading (and reviewing) your Narnia fics.
This story is pure loveliness. It's nice to see the adjustments both the new kings and queens and the people of the land are making to try and set things right, as well as the appreciation they have for the chance to even do so. Wonderful job! Keep up the writing!

It is beautifully written, it manages to encompass both; the worries of the Narnian peolple hold for their new rulers,and also of their new kings and how they might effect Narnia
I also enjoyed how you manage the show the beginning of greatness in both Peter and Ed and their the end I think the last two lines the epitome of great ends.
Throughly enjoyable OK now i'm gonna refrain from writing more and go read more of your fics
