Great writing. Very touching read. I almost cried when I read about Peter's supposed death.

“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten,
The crawling locust,
The consuming locust,
And the chewing locust,
My great army which I sent among you."
Yes lady. Just like the kings of Narnia.
I love how they announce them in the streets as barbarians. I'm sure it amuses them no end.
Someday, in Aslan's Country, they are going to have to introduce Cemil to their mother.
And I hope Sadei will listen to her mother-in-law, and they will build family of faith in Tashbaan. Maybe even the Tarkaan.
I'm glad she'll get a grandbaby! She is like Naomi, bountiful blessings in her old[er] age!
It is well finished. My thanks Lady, for composing such a tale to share with us all. I am sure that the King above all High Kings is well pleased with your labors.

"Then He who sat on the throne said, 'Behold, I make all things new.' And He said to me, 'Write, for these words are true and faithful.'"
In true, schizophrenic fashion, I am now laughing!
Oh Oreius, you are not at fault.
He has adopted them all. A strange mix of sovereign and foal. Only in Narnia.
I want to jump and run and dance and spin around in circles! But it's raining and 30 degrees Fahrenheit and dark. *pouts*

"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,"
I'm still crying, but I'm smiling now.
I'd actually forgotten about the Plague and Cure. Thank Aslan for Phillip.
For such a time as this.
Don't be ashamed Peter. All scars tell a story, and this story is one of Aslan's provision. (Though you really shouldn't have carved the runes into your arm.)
Yay! And Narnia is healed. And Peter!
| CaraLee934 chapter 40 . 2/11
"Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him."
Well. Peter certainly endured temptation.
I am crying now.
| CaraLee934 chapter 39 . 2/11
"His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’"
I'm busy trying not to cry.
| CaraLee934 chapter 38 . 2/11
"Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother."
Well. I think we know what is to become of Darreth now.
Another chapter that makes me feel sick inside.
Oh Peter. You are breaking my heart right now.
Edmund, sweetheart, there is always hope.
And that is why Aslan appointed Edmund as judge. Because he knows the true value and cost of mercy.
Darreth, he is the Just King. But that means that he understands justice. It does not therefore follow that he always demand it.
Foreign to him? Oh child, how wrong you are.
| CaraLee934 chapter 37 . 2/11
"My bones are pierced in me at night,
And my gnawing pains take no rest."
At the risk of sounding extremely redundant...Oh dear.
And at the risk of sounding flippant...This is why you shouldn't run with scissors, boys.
(Please Aslan let him be alright.)
And Phillip overseeing the loading. Horses are very bossy. I should know, I practically live with them during the summer.
Just when we think we're home safe...
| CaraLee934 chapter 36 . 2/11
"It is a joy for the just to do justice,
But destruction will come to the workers of iniquity."
So there shall be more justice dealt?
But who is left?
Edmund probably remembers all the princes. Peter...not so much. This is why they are a team!
Poor Oreius! I reiterate my comment about his poor, greying coat.
Thank Aslan for common Horse Sense!
Oh. Him. *headdesk* And once again, my scatterbrained, live-in-the-present outlook comes back to bite my tail.
Hurrah for Phillip! I love that Horse!
| CaraLee934 chapter 35 . 2/11
"Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you."
A fitting verse for the reunion we have been waiting for ever since they were separated!
"How to make Dwarves happy 101.
Method number 22: Give them shiny weapons."
It seems that, at fifteen, Edmund has yet to master the art of dealing with an emotional woman.
That last sentence was most dramatic!
| CaraLee934 chapter 34 . 2/11
"I have hope in God, which they themselves also accept, that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust."
In the context of Narnia, I find the use of the words "just" and "unjust" mildly amusing.
Actually Peter, Edmund is looking for you to take you home!
Lies upon lies it seems. Though the sailors knew no better.
And it must hurt the Lady, to know that Edmund would rather jump from the ship rather than be returned to her. Poor thing.
Oh dear. Um...Hello?
I am afraid that I am not at all sorry for the Tarkheena. Okay, maybe just a little bit. She was a fool.
Edmund, or Aslan rather, has impeccable timing!
| CaraLee934 chapter 33 . 2/11
"He delivered me from my strong enemy,
From those who hated me,
For they were too strong for me."
For which we thank Him continually.
Dwarves for the Dwarves...Lion alive, not THAT! Not here! Is there no rest!? To quote a most honored bard, "save us from the stubbornness of Dwarves!"
One does not have to be well-fed to be Magnificent, Master Burbrik.
Somehow, Dwarves manage to combine stubbornness with fickleness. They seem, as a race, to be fairly mercenary, bless them.
Actually Peter, about Edmund...
| CaraLee934 chapter 32 . 2/11
"Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go."
Why thank you, most smug Shahrivar, for informing us as to the nature of the cure!
Oh! How would the Silver Plague affect the talking trees? That cannot be pleasant for them at all.
Oh yes, most noble Tahir. Most excellent man. May he rot in a dunghill.
Oh Shahrivar. Haven't you heard? He ISN'T a tame Lion.
| CaraLee934 chapter 31 . 2/11
“If a man is found kidnapping any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and mistreats him or sells him, then that kidnapper shall die; and you shall put away the evil from among you."
Ah Phillip. One of the two movie-verse characters that has been joyfully adopted by book-fans everywhere! Despite the complete impropriety of his serving as a personal steed outside of wartime. (I personally think that he doesn't give two sugar cubes about propriety.)
Paid. In. Full.
Yes, the Tigers would not be well pleased with Serkan and his men.
I like this chapter. *grins*
| CaraLee934 chapter 30 . 2/11
"Wisdom is better than weapons of war;
But one sinner destroys much good.”
"You need it more than I do." They are not the only ones laughing and crying. I might be. Just a little. (I may have mentioned that I tend to get really emotionally involved in stories. Good ones anyway.)
Oh yeah, Edmund, about that...
And about Peter being recognized...
Shahrivar is going to gloat isn't he. And give Peter all the information he needs.
