This is brilliant. It made me teary-eyed.

Oh, that was beautiful! Thank you!
| crotia chapter 2 . 2/23/2014
That was wonderfull.
| crotia chapter 1 . 2/23/2014
Yeah and that was obvious. The scene you wrote was almost tangible

Good story of the Pervensie father witnessing his children give a Narnian ceremony. He noticed that they all changed when he returned from the war and now he knows why.

This is a very beautiful Christmas scene you have painted indeed, especially how you bring out the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you for writing this! :)

This made me cry...now I'm all sad, but happy at the same time. This doesn't usually happen to me.

This second chapter gave me the chills, and tears. What a magnificent and truly theological ritual. Peter's and Edmund's parts I liked particularly.

I'm so glad there's someone else who gets chills from Christmas carols. "Oh Come, Oh Come, Emmanuel" always does it for me.
I like how you've translated the love for Aslan into the "real world," especially in Edmund.

I will be the first to admit that, though I love the books, I'm not entirely comfortable with the allegorical nature of the Chronicles of Narnia. I'm not Christian and sometimes the obvious Christian references make me uneasy, so when I saw this fic going in that direction, I nearly stopped reading.
I'm glad I didn't. This was a lovely story and I thought it was beautiful how the Pevensies kept at least one of their Narnian traditions. I could almost imagine them enacting this scene in the Great Hall of Cair Paravel or in the courtyard outside in years before. I loved how Mr. Pevensie was the one to narrate this and what he saw in Susan (who I always felt got a really bad rap in the books). I also loved how she came with her siblings and participated, though you could tell she was afraid of what it meant. This was a wonderful story and filled me with such warmth and comfort to read, so I'm glad I didn't stop partway through. Thank you for writing it!

I agree. 'What Child is This?' Is one of my absolute favorites as well. Actually, a few years ago my mom (who is also my church's choral conductor) found a choral arrangement that has 'What Child is This?' as it's base and it automatically became my favorite choir song ever.
It's called 'Child of the Poor'. Here's a link if you want to check it out.
P.S. I posted the link from my iPad, so if it doesn't work you could just search YouTube. The video by Instik Baguio is probably the closest to how I've heard it sung.

This was lovely :) I'm not Christian, but the spirituality and love in this piece made the holiday seem special even to me. I loved that Susan came back-and her surprise that she did. I thought the recitation was sweet and powerful. It disturbed me a bit that Lucy was the child to speak of Death, being so full of Life, but at the same time it makes sense: so great is her love of Aslan that she does not fear death as the others might.

Oh, and God bless you, too! Haha!

Wow . . . I'm just... just speechless! Truly, words are not enough to describe this. Then again, maybe none at all are needed. For you've summarized everything in this final chapter of this short, yet wonderfully written, sweet Christmas fic. The Christmas journey in the eyes of all four of the Pevensies was painted in a clear, perfect picture here. I believe that this was how, even in this world, they have truly kept Narnia, went on in their earthly journey, and ultemately in the end, found Aslan and got to know Him more; love Him more. Just one word: Magnificent. This fic's just . . . magnificent.
