Fic: ‘Home at last.’  
Title: Home at last.
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia (movie)
Rating: (G)
Time Period: During events in Prince Caspian.
Summary: She is home.

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

What appealed to me about writing this story was the simple appreciation shown for the world, the land, around Lucy. How at home she seemed to be in Prince Caspian upon their return to Narnia and this was an attempt to capture that.

Fingertips trail along the leaves of a nearby bush. Hushed words are whispered to a tree. Fresh air fills her and is let go with each breath, welcomed in the next. Everywhere she turns, she swears she sees Aslan, beckoning them to follow a particular path.

Her eyes wide, she cannot believe their good fortune to have returned.

At night, she studies the stars, tracing the constellations with a finger until her eyes close and her words a faded murmur. Susan pulls the blanket over her before settling herself for the night fully. In the morning, as the sun sleepily peers over the world, she is already awake. She wraps the dew-laden blanket around her and her gaze seeks what was not seen the day previous.

A thready dirt path is hidden but she finds it, following the great lion before her. The blanket catches on a bush and is lost to the morning mist that sneaks away in the wakening sun.

“Lucy!”

She glances over her shoulder and Aslan is lost to her sight when she looks back. “Coming!” She calls and stops, in her way, to collect her fallen blanket. She is home, she feels, for the first time in a very, very long time.

I just love the joy Lucy takes in Narnia. Even when Aslan's angry at her; she still takes this great joy in being there, in Narnia. When I get around to watching Dawn Treader I fully expect to be heartbroken.

It's a very palpable joy she takes in Narnia and I'm just glad to be able to share it.
