Fic: ‘The Queen returned.’  
Title: The Queen returned.
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia (movie)
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During events in Prince Caspian: when Lucy sought Aslan.
Summary: Old skills, and memories, flow.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

The words fell onto the page; that’s the only way to describe how this came into being. Hopefully, it makes sense!

Arrow to bow and then she nocks it with practiced ease. Old skills flow into fingers since become used to pens and pencils. With fluid motions, the arrow is aimed while Lucy runs into the forest.

More than a sister, in the moment that the arrow fires, she is the Queen she once was. The calm that settles as a mantle is familiar; she remembers it from when she fired into the fray to protect her brothers when needed. Now, she protects Lucy while her sister flees into the forest.

Another arrow follows the first and the bow is pointed at the second horseman. Instinct had nocked another arrow; she doesn’t remember doing it. However, the arrow is halted, kept on the string when another horseman crashes through the underbrush. The bow is lowered, the arrow idle.

She realises in that moment that this will be last time she will feel so at home on Narnian soil.

that line at the end is just GUH.
That line was supposed to be about her concern for Lucy; your reaction makes me very glad I changed it now!

Oh dear, dear Susan.

Old skills flow into fingers since become used to pens and pencils.

I loved this line...it says so much in so few words!

That last line was simply perfect and really brought it home. :D

And watch me sigh in relief; that was the one line I wasn't certain about keeping in!

That last line was simply perfect and really brought it home. :D
That's really wonderful to know as I'd changed that line from one of concern about Lucy to being what it is now.
