Fic: ‘The snow fell.’  
Title: The snow fell.
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia (movie)
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During the Voyage of the Dawn Treader
Summary: It was around her.

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

Yes, I finally saw Chronicles of Narnia: the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, where this scene will be recognised from! I was trying to convey something of the magic in that scene – the beckoning book, the snow. I was also feeling my way about Lucy; she’s new, to me. All grown up! It also feels very odd, to me, to write her without Mr Tumnus somewhere nearby.

And yes, at some point, I’ll tackle Caspian.

Standing on a pedestal, the book beckoned; she could almost see fingers stretching to pull her closer. The doors closed behind her but the book beckoned.

Staring at the cover didn’t help as she struggled with the lock. A carving caught her eye above the book and she grinned as the cloud moved. Her eyes widened briefly and she blew upon the book. The letters rearranged themselves. The lock clicked open in her hands.

Warmth emanated from the book; she leaned closer to study the pages more closely. Words and pictures caught her eye as she read the names of each incantation.


Murmuring the words to herself, she gasped when a snowflake fell onto the opposite page. Another fell, then another. Her lips curved into a smile as the snow fell, carpeting the floor, the pedestal, herself with its soft caress. A wonderland formed around her but when she glanced at the book, she frowned and blew the snow away.

The pages flared until they landed once more. She didn’t notice the green mist sneaking from between the closed page.

Haven't watched Dawn Treader yet; but I remember that scene from the book so clearly; and you've captured it excellently.
