That seemed very real, and I can certainly imgaine Edmund feeling that way. It just seems right for him to, somehow.

Hmmm, there. That answers Lucy's question in the book, if Ed knew what Aslan did for him. Somehow, it fits. Somehow, I would not doubt that through that dream that isn't really a dream, he had known. Oh, offended? I don't think so. All is lovely; wonderful!

Hmmm... much as I hate to say it, I think perhaps a rising sun is a bit too weak of an excuse for Edmund to feel hope, and... well, it's kinda cliche. I reckon if you put in something like Edmund hearing a roar in the distance (and maybe nobody else does), and that gives him hope? Or something more concrete than a rising sun, at any rate.
But that's just a suggestion; I'm not going to tell you how to write your own fic! I did like your dialogue and, as always, your writing style flows very well.

This is original
Usually Aslan told him in The Talk or Lucy and Susan told him. I like this way!

smiles. I love Ed, and I always wondered if he ought to know what Aslan had done for him. I think this is a very good way for Edmund to know, and accept what had happened to free him of any guilt.

WOW! this is a cool chapter!

It's always nice to see a return to the books and not the movie, for once.
And you did a lovely job - I'm not sure if I would have thought it plausible before, but this certainly made me reconsider.
Well done - I'll be watching for the rest of the challenges!

Hmm... this was a nice fic, with a very nice sentiment at the end. Hope, after all, is such a wonderful thing.
I'm not sure I agree with Edmund knowing Aslan was alive. Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely idea, and I don't want to hurt any feelings with that comment. But it just doesn't sit right...
Now, Edmund's near-precognitive dream was a fun idea. It's entirely plausible that he even heard the girls and Aslan leaving whilst half-asleep; the mind can be funny like that, and just lets the subconscious take over.
Still, this was very nicely written, and highly enjoyable to read. You have a nicely flowing style, which is just the kind I like to read :)

Story/Characters: 6.75/10. Decent story progression and it is not OOC, but I guess that I just don't see how Edmund knowing everything as it happens adds to his character - at least you don't show me how it does.
Creativity: 6/10. Yet another Edmund redemption fic, though the idea has a bit of a twist to it.
Writing: 7.75/10. Nicely written with few, if any, mistakes, but not spectacular.
Believability: 7/10. It seems a little odd to me that Edmund knows all this, but it isn't too unbelievable, I guess.
Overall: 7/10. Decently executed fic, but I think that it doesn't really distinguish itself.
Professionalism: A. Your notes and summary both seem to be useful and appropriate.
