(So I'm about to head off for work, but I feel guilty because I have yet to post any more of my request!fics today. I AM working on them, though, so they should be here soon. I feel as though there should be some more Casmund out there, thus I'm offering this sad little rant that ends with surprise!Ben/Skandar. Well, not a surprise to everyone else now that I said that (SPOILER ALERT!), but it sure as hell was a surprise to me).
At the end of VotDT everyone hugs and it's all sweet and heartbreaking, right? Well anyone else notice how when Lucy hugs Caspian, she has to launch herself at him as he stands unmovingly and it's up to him to catch her. Yet when Edmund and Caspian go in for a hug, both of them move towards each other. (Also, Edmund sort of buries his head in Caspian's shoulder, but that's another matter entirely. Well, actually, it isn't. I just don't have all the squee time I need).
And then in real life, everytime we see Skandar and Ben together Ben has his arm around Skandar. Now that's normal, but almost every single time he has his arm around Skandar's waist. With William or any other male costar, from what I've seen, he's either standing close by or has his arm slung around one of their shoulders. But with Skandar his arm is almost always around Skandar's waist. What is up with that? (I have a feeling this is one of those fantasies >>>>> real life moments).
