Queens of Narnia

   I recently made two more Narnia graphics that I want to share with you! One is focused on Lucy, and the other on Susan. Susan's turned out different than I wanted it to, but I think I like it well enough. :D
  I'm sorry I haven't done Edmund's Comparison Post yet, they take quite awhile to write and I haven't found the time. :) I will hopefully start working on it soon, however, so that I can post it. I actually made some changes on Lucy's CP though, that I wanted to let you know about. In the CP I mentioned that the part where Lucy recites the spell to make her beautiful, and the fact that she wants to be prettier than Susan, isn't in the book. I, however, was wrong! Turns out I haven't read the book in.. uh.. ages. :) And that part actually IS in the book! I went back and corrected the post, but I wanted to let you know in this post so that you can go back and read it. In fact, I'll post the part that I changed right here:

The whole tempting business about the Green Mist and her wanting to be prettier than Susan, is not in the book. The tempting business with the Green Mist is not in the book, however, Lucy wanting to be prettier than Susan actually is! Lucy came across the spell in the Book of Spells when, like in the movie, she was releasing the Dufflepuds from the spell. In the book she didn't recite the spell later after tearing the page from the book, or enter into a dream. Even though she did not recite the spell to make her beautiful "beyond the lot of mortals.", she watches/looks at pictures in the Book of Spells that show her what it'd be like be prettier than Susan. Here's a section from the book that explains what she saw:


Lucy peered at the pictures with her face close to the page, and though they seemed crowded and muddlesome before, she found she could now see them quite clearly. The first was a picture of a girl standing at a reading-desk reading a huge book. And the girl was dressed exactly like Lucy. In the next picture Lucy (for the girl in the picture was Lucy herself) was standing up with her mouth open and a rather terrible expression on her face, chanting a recieting something. In the third picture the beauty beyond the lot of mortals had come to her. It was strange, considering how small the pictures had looked at first, the the Lucy in the pictures now seemed quite as big as the real Lucy; and they look into each other's eyes and the real Lucy looked away after a few minutes because she was dazzled by the beauty of the other Lucy; though she could still see a sort of likeness to herself in that beautiful face. And now the pictures came crowding on her thick and fast. She saw herself throned on high at a great tournament in Calormen and all the Kings of the world fought because of her beauty. After that it turned from tournaments to real wars, and all Narnia and Archenland, Telmar and Calormen, Galma and Terebinthia, were laid waste with the fury of the kings and dukes and great lords who fought for her favor. Then it changed and Lucy, still beautiful beyond the lot of mortals, was back in England. And Susan (who had always been the beauty of the family) came home from America. The Susan in the picture looked exactly like the real Susan only plainer and with a nasty expression. And Susan was jealous of the dazzling beauty of Lucy, but that didn't matter a bit because no one cared anything about Susan now.

Sorry it's so long. x) In the book Lucy never does recite the spell, though she wants to, for Aslan warns her through a picture of him growling; the picture apears right after she tells herself that she is going to recite the spell, even though she has a strong feeling she shouldn't. Anyway, that part is in the book, though some may either forget (like I did) or may not even know. :)
Hopefully that was easier than going back and finding what I changed. If you haven't read the whole post before, then I would suggest you do!
  Again, I'm sorry Edmund's CP isn't up yet, but I hope to get it written, then posted, soon!
I hope you enjoy the graphics. :) Here's a quote from the Voyage of the Dawn Treader, since that's what I have in my head right now. :D
   
                                   ------------------------------------------------------
Then her face lit up till, for a moment (but of course she didn't know it), she looked almost as beautiful as the other Lucy in the picture, and she ran forward with a little cry of delight and with her arms stretched out. For what stood in the doorway was Aslan himself , The Lion, the highest of all High Kings. And he was solid and real and warm and he let her kiss him and bury herself in his shining mane. And from the low earthquake-like sound that came from inside him, Lucy even dared to think that he was purring.

    1. You read my mind! Yes, most likely Little Women will be next. Or, depending on when I get it done, Edmund's CP.
