I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who participated this year! It was a great turnout, and we ended up with a wonderful and diverse crop of stories. And thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on the stories - I know everyone worked hard on their fic, and it's good to see the response.

I really wanted to recognize the pinch-hitters:

[livejournal.com profile] cofax7
[livejournal.com profile] lady_songsmith
[livejournal.com profile] rthstewart
[livejournal.com profile] angel_in_tears (two pinch-hits!)

Thank you so much, ladies! You really helped out when we were in a jam, and I appreciate it so much.

Also, I didn't get a chance to link to one of the stories from the open prompts before posting started, so here it is: Power of the Mist by [livejournal.com profile] jn208505. I'm glad you joined in the fun.

~~~~~~~~~

If you want more great Narnia fic, we're going to have another fest this year, in the winter. It's still in the planning stages, but it's going to be bigger: higher minimum word count and longer time to write. Kind of a Mini-Big Bang! It's not going to be an exchange (don't worry, we'll do that again next summer), but prompts will be accepted.

Also, we're looking for artists to be involved. Most Big Bangs include pairing up an artist with a writer, and the artist creates pieces based on the story. Now the art can be anything - illustrations, banners, collages, photo-manips, icon sets, fanvids, fanmixes - as long as it's based on the story. If you'd like to participate that way, instead of writing, or if you think you know someone who'd be interested, please tell them to join us!

And we're brainstorming some ideas about the fest right now, over in my journal. If you're interested, have some ideas or suggestions, please come and comment!

The exchange for 2011 is finally over and done with. Congratulations of a wonderful round everyone. The fics, as always, are brilliant! Under the cut you'll find the reveals/master list.

You can now post your fic wherever you see fit.

Not Children Anymore )




Original Prompt that we sent you:
What I want: I'm pretty okay with anything but it has to be limited to the characters from movies 1-3
Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: "they may have been in children's bodies, but they were no longer children." "What happened to the people the siblings left behind; their wives, husbands, children?"
What I definitely don't want in my fic: Nothing book related that can't be found by Googling it.

Title: Wanting Home
Author: [livejournal.com profile] angel_in_tears
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] voiceinahead
Rating: PG
Possible Spoilers/Warnings: All of Prince Caspian
Summary: Susan didn’t want to be back in Narnia. She wanted to be home.
Author Note Thank you to my amazing beta. TO the recipient – I’m sorry I couldn’t work on your first prompt, but I hope this one is okay!

Wanting Home )




Original prompt we sent you:
What I want: Both these are mainly in movie verse, but I've read the books too, so you can go through there also.
If the writer is okay with writing slash, I'd love to see the missing make-up scene after the fight at the well that turns everything to gold (VotDT), as in the movie-verse there's no apologies or anything really and Lucy just walks away.
But if slash is not the writer's cup of tea, I'd very much like to hear a realistic, not-too-romantic version of why Susan kissed Caspian in the end even though she knew she was leaving for good, it would go even more interesting if Susan already had a boyfriend of sorts in England and she still dallied a little with Caspian. Since Susan seems the most grown-up and nearly annoyed at being in Narnia again in "Prince Caspian", I'd like to hear what were her thoughts.
So, the writer is free to choose which is more inspiring! Thank you! ;)
Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever:
Prompts for Edmund and Caspian: my king, guilt, crush, apologies, anger, pride
Prompts for Susan and Caspian: guilt, queen, a good girl, home, real love,
What I definitely don't want in my fic: please, no established relationships unless they've been established in the books/films (excluding the idea I had about Susan already having a boyfriend ofc) and I don't really like to read overly extreme violent stuff :)

Title: Proper Narnians All

Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] philote_auctor
Rating: PG
Possible Spoilers/Warnings: None
Summary: Three comrades on the Dawn Treader prepare for the future.

Proper Narnians All )




Original Prompt that we sent you:
What I want:
Edmund. I'd love Edmund & Peter brother-fic, or Edmund taking a big brother sort of role with Eustace, or Edmund & Caspian friendship. Any setting, movie or book canon or a blend of the two is fine. I love hurt/comfort. :)
Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: Whatever, really. Here's an optional lyric, if it offers inspiration:
"And I feel stuck/Watching history repeating
Yeah, who am I?/Just a kid who knows he's needy
Let me know that You hear me/Let me know Your touch
Let me know that You love me/And let that be enough"
–"Let That Be Enough," Switchfoot
What I definitely don't want in my fic: Incest, slash, porn of any sort; mpreg, death fic.

Title: Sing Down The Stars
Author: [livejournal.com profile] snacky
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] edenfalling
Rating: Teen
Disclaimer: Characters, situations, settings, belong to C.S. Lewis/Walden Media.
Possible Spoilers/Warnings: Assume spoilers for The Silver Chair/canonical character death.
Summary: Rilian returns to Narnia, and his story begins.

Author's notes: Thanks to my betas, [livejournal.com profile] unsuitenedt and [livejournal.com profile] rthstewart for all their help. And thanks to [livejournal.com profile] edenfalling for such a great prompt! I'd had this story in mind for a long time, so when I saw it on your list of prompts, I jumped on it. Bookverse, not movieverse, as requested, although I took the liberty of giving Ramandu's Daughter a name.

Sing Down The Stars... )





Original prompt we sent you:
What I want: I would adore a The Last Battle AU in which there is NOT a train accident. Jill and Eustace get to Narnia anyhow, they and Tirian save the country without Aslan declaring Game Over, and they are now too old and must go home to England forever. They and the Pevensies grow up and get jobs. Some of them marry and have children. (I'd love this to be a Jill/Eustace story, if possible.) Susan continues to drift away, though she may be reconciled at some point as she grows older.

Then maybe twenty years later, when the Friends of Narnia are together for a reunion, the adults overhear some of their children talking about a peculiar adventure they had in a country where animals talk, and there was a Lion... :-)

Please don't feel obligated to write that! But I never liked the ending of TLB and I feel that if learning to know Aslan in Narnia was practice for knowing him in England, then we ought to see examples of how to live in mid-twentieth-century England as a good and noble person. Otherwise what is the point?

More ideas I'd love to read:

1. The first post-Winter interaction between Narnia and Archenland - the Pevensies meeting Lune, Narnians having to relearn how to deal with the surrounding human-dominated lands, etc. Friendship or tension are both fine.

2. What happened in Narnia in the years around the death of the Tree of Protection, and whether Jadis killed it or it just died of old age

3. Caspian fighting giants before VoDT, maybe using the war to help unite Telmarine Narnia with Old Narnia

4. Rillian having to prove he's himself (and not enchanted) upon his return to Narnia, possibly dealing with Miraz's son or other descendants trying to claim the throne

Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: "....for if you live you may yet have good fortune but all the dead are dead alike." Also, swords and swordfights are always welcome. :-)

What I definitely don't want in my fic: incest, the Pevensies or Caspian having sex during PC, anyone having sex during VoDT, film canon instead of book canon, any Pevensie/Caspian shipping

Title: Out of Season
Author: [livejournal.com profile] edenfalling
Recipient [livejournal.com profile] lady_songsmith
Rating: PG-13
Possible Spoilers: no plot spoilers, extensive use of background and settings from The Horse and His Boy
Warnings: background presence of slavery, discussion of and planning for something equivalent to human sacrifice
Summary: In the fourteenth year of Rishti Tisroc's reign, a demon in the shape of a beaver is captured and brought to Tashbaan. Shezan Tolkheera, high priestess of the goddess Achadith, is given the responsibility of guarding the demon until its sacrifice at the Spring Festival. Complications ensue.


Part 2

Out of Season, part 3 )




Original Prompt: What I want:
any of:
-moral/ethical dilemmas: doing the wrong thing for the right reasons
-Susan solves a major national/international problem with her wits/words
-the first time (any of) the Pevensies leave Narnia-the-country or the first time they meet someone from another country.
-a crisis at Cair Paravel told from a non-Pevensie perspective

Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever:
home, allegiance, discovery, secrecy, oath, perception

What I definitely don't want in my fic:
I don't like the preachy, convert-to-Christianity-today! tone found in a large subset of Narnia fic (no problem with religious themes; just over the top tone). I don't like the infantilization of the female characters - Lucy always a naive child whatever her age, Susan helpless and weepy, Jill confused and lost. That's about it, I think.

Rating: PG
Possible Spoilers/Warnings: If you’ve read The Magician’s Nephew, you’re good.
Summary: “Digory,” Polly says one day as Digory steadies her on her back in the water, teaching her to float. “I don’t want to marry you. I’m saying this right now so you won’t make any plans.”

Words We Don't Have )


Original prompt we sent you:
What I want: England fic! I'd like something that feels historical - tied to a specific period in history, I mean, like the 1920s (for Digory and Polly) or the Blitz or the early 1950s. I'm happy to read about any of the characters you'd like to write about, though I'm less interested in Peter and Lucy (however, if you have a good idea for fic about them, please write it!).
Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: debutante, sport, dinner jacket, hiraeth
What I definitely don't want in my fic: Incest. It's just not my thing, I'm sorry.

And for all you Torchwood fans out there (what up!), I’ve included a tiny reference. Title taken from a TS Eliot poem.

falls the shadow )



Original Prompt that we sent you:
What I want: (e.g. specific ship or character, England fic, Golden Age fic, AU, set during a ball, someone falls ill, whatever, etc.)
Any one or combination of the following
- The Golden Age (in particular: Pevensies adapting to rule & finding their niches, intrigue, relationships with other countries - friendly/armed truce/hate your guts, day-to-day life)
- Edmund being awesome (in any way, shape, or form)
- Susan and/or Lucy being awesome
- Heck, collective Pevensie awesomeness and snark is always appreciated
- anything about Cor and Aravis
- recreating Narnia in England
- teaching Caspian about Narnia & differences b/w Golden Age and PC eras
- wars!
- anything about Lilliandil
- anything about Jadis
- post-PC fallout (ANGST!)
Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: (These are totally random and can be disregarded at author's choice) fruit, grass, marble, time, stars, tea, presents, tissues
What I definitely don't want in my fic:
- sidelining Lucy or Susan
- a canon character/OC pairing
- nothing but fluff

Title: The Exhaustion of Dawn
Author: [livejournal.com profile] intrikate88
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] bedlamsbard
Rating: G
Possible Spoilers/Warnings: Spoilers only for Magician’s Nephew; warnings for general depictions of mental illness.
Summary: After coming back from the War with little more than a debilitating case of shell shock, Digory has trouble believing that the world, which seems to be falling apart around him, is anywhere he would want to stay. While staying with Polly to recuperate, he investigates the rumor of fairies that Uncle Andrew told him about, and finds more than he expected, but perhaps exactly what he hoped for.

The Exhaustion of Dawn )




Original Prompt that we sent you:
What I want: Hi! I love stories that happen outside what we actually see, so just a couple of ideas:
1. gritty crime story set during the Long Winter starring Maugrim and the Secret Police
2. Lucy and Tumnus's second meeting in LWW (bookverse or movieverse, I don't care), the one that takes place at the same time that Edmund meets the White Witch
3. so why do people join up with the White Witch, anyway? (no absolute evil, please)
4. surely other people have wandered into the greater Narnian world aside from Our Heroes. It would be really cool to see, mmm, missing people from our world (Amelia Earhart, the Roanoke colonists, and so on) end up in that world (maybe not in Narnia proper, but, you know, we've got Calormen, Archenland, Telmar, the various islands, the north...). Crossovers are fine if you feel so inclined. (Chrestomance! That would be awesome.)
5. what did Polly and Digory (and Uncle Andrew if you like) think of the Cottingley Fairies?
Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: believe, disaster, discovery, tea and cookies
What I definitely don't want in my fic: I'd prefer not to have anything very shippy with any of the canon characters. I'm fine with movieverse or bookverse, although I wasn't very fond of the VotDT movie.

Title: How Queen Susan Settled the Marsh-Wiggle Revolt
Author: [livejournal.com profile] cofax7
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] ilysia_039
Rating: All ages
Warnings: none, except for mild Marsh-Wiggle abuse
Summary: If the Marsh-Wiggles had not kidnapped Edmund while he was taking an entirely peaceful tour of the northern borders, and then sent a nonsensical demand to Cair Paravel, Susan would not now be wishing for Peter to be slogging through the midnight mud instead. 4,100 words of the Golden Age.

How Queen Susan Settled the Marsh-Wiggle Revolt )



Original prompt we sent you:
What I want: A Golden-Age story about Susan (everyone else can come along too, of course, but mostly Susan) in which she has some sort of opportunity to take more power (politically, maybe, or through magic perhaps). Writer's decision concerning the circumstances and outcome. AU or canon, both are fine.
Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: "How can I let go of this?", the North
What I definitely don't want in my fic: Caspian, gratuitous violence/sex.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] mogseltof
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] 101adela

All’s Fair in Rose Bushes and Cricket )




Original prompt we sent you:
What I want: A fic set during the Golden Age where Edmund gives Peter a massage after a stressful day or something and it turns into sex. Or (if they don't want to write slash) a hurt/comfort fic between a younger Edmund (LWWish age) and Peter- maybe Edmund is trying to deny it but Peter can see he needs comforting
Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: Anything
What I definitely don't want in my fic: beastility, bloodplay, femslash- anything else is fine =3

Summary: Lucy has an adventure

Lost and Found )






Original Prompt that we sent you:
What I want:
- Pevensies; Eustace and Jill are okay too
- Preferably in Narnia, but I'm fine with other worlds/universes. I'm a fan of AUs as well (e.g. Pevensies stay in Narnia; Susan not forgetting in TLB; etc).
- Bookverse if using canon.
- Optional -- battles, adventure, mystery, mythology, spies

Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: None

What I definitely don't want in my fic: Incest, rape, slash, romance; Spare Oom Pevensie angst about being exiled from Narnia.

Title: If You Only Walk Long Enough
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lady_songsmith
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] snitchnipped
Rating: PG-13
Possible Spoilers/Warnings: None
Summary: In which Edmund and Susan discover that Rabadash manages to be a pain even when he’s an ass.

Prompt words/objects/quotes/whatever: Edmund's sword; sehnsucht; "Enjoy the silence"; dissonance and resolution; the turrets of Cair Paravel.
What I definitely don't want in my fic: anyone "rolling their eyes" every two paragraphs or having "chocolate brown eyes". They're so overused in fic, and it makes me roll my chocolate brown eyes! Anything too AU, Lucy-centric, Susan "not a friend of Narnia," post TLB, or incest, please.
