Yesterday tolielikeyou and I went to see The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in theaters and it was amazing. So, in the need to babble pointlessly, I have decided to post my thoughts here on the off chance that someone will read and comment.
Okay, first off, Edmund/Caspian slash was huge and everywhere. It's as if the writers sat down and said "Peter isn't in this one, so who shall we slash Edmund with in order to gain the love of fangirls?" and then lo and behold, Ben showed up on set with Skandar and E/C was born. I have literally never shipped non canon slash without watching the movie/show more times than once, but I was sitting in the theaters just waiting for them to make out or something. It easily surpasses Peter/Caspian, in my personal opinion, though I think it'll be a LONG time before it ever passes up Peter/Edmund, who are my OTP for life. (^Icon^) I especially love how they only mentioned Susan once in this movie in regards of, what do they call it? Suspian? I don't know, something like that. Nothing against the ship itself, but I just found this wonderful.
Also, am I the only one who found the fight scene on the boat with serpent hilarious? Not because of the scene itself because, you know, death bad, pretty people good. But I loved how Lucy's running around on board, trying her best to help fight off the serpent and Caspian doesn't seem to give a flying flip. I mean I'm sure she can look after herself, being Queen Lucy the Valiant and all, but she has to only be in her early teens and I mean, come on, deadly serpent here! And what's Caspian doing? Shouting at and watching out for Edmund and trying to protect him, even though it seemed to me Edmund remembered his times as a leader well. I just find it amusing that between watching out for a young Queen Lucy or a older (though still young) King Edmund the Just he picked the latter.
And that is all I can think to write at the moment, so bye and thanks for reading!
