A Picture is Worth 1000 Words: A Multifandom Comment Fic Meme

Have you seen a hot photo at Sex is Not the Enemy and you wish there were a fic to go with it? Is there a still from your favorite series that needs a story to accompany it? Do you have a vast stockpile of pictures of outer space that would make amazing back drops for a sci-fi story? Well, this is your place! You're invited to post an interesting picture prompt in the comments and to write stories for pictures that others have left.

The rules are simple:

1. For leaving prompts: Please post only one picture per comment. The picture is the only prompt you are leaving; please do not include fandoms, characters, plot ideas, etc. If your picture is potentially triggering or not safe for work, please post a link to it and include an appropriate warning/rating in the subject line.

2. For writing fills: Please include a title, fandom, and any relevant warnings/ratings in the subject line; also include characters or pairings if they fit. Your fill may be any length, and if it is too long for one comment, feel free to use multiple comment boxes or link to a posting on your journal.

3. You may leave up to five prompts, even if you do not intend to write any fills. You may leave one additional prompt for each fill you write.

4. Multiple fills for one prompt are welcome and encouraged!

5. Any fandom, character, pairing, or genre is welcome.

Have fun and pimp this around! I will continue updating the list of fills as new stories are posted.

Lamppost (Narnia, Susan, all ages)
Lamppost
Narnia, Susan, all ages

_____


It happens nearly every time she passes a lamppost, but especially on winter nights when the snow is swirling down, and the flakes catch the light: a pang between her ribs, and then a cold, cold feeling, like she swallowed a block of ice. She pauses, closing her eyes, and waits to feel something more. Just what, she doesn’t know. It’s been so long that she can’t remember exactly how it felt the two times she was pulled out of this world and into another. And maybe that’s the problem, she thinks as she waits and waits, growing colder, growing frustrated. Maybe if she could just remember, that would be it, the thing she needs to do to find her brothers, her sister, her cousin, and her friends.

It’s stupid. Aslan told her she could never return to Narnia. The only way to cope with her disappointment had been to convince herself that it had all been a delightful, elaborate game she played as a child.

Now that she’s grown, now that her family is gone … she doesn’t know. If that place was real or fantasy. If the chill in her heart means anything. If she’s losing her mind, one lamppost at a time.

The moment never lasts for very long. She begins to attract the stares of passersby; a couple of times, people have touched her arm, startling her out of her reverie, to ask her if she’s all right.

Yes, she always says, shaking herself slightly and forcing a brittle smile to her lips. Yes, I’m fine, thank you.

And, the spell broken, Susan readjusts her purse strap and continues on her way. She’ll warm herself up with a cup of tea, she thinks, or phone up a friend. There are a million things she can do to make herself feel better, to help herself forget. This is the real world. She can feel it through the soles of her shoes, every slab of cement, every pebble. If the wind tugs at her hair or the hem of her skirt … it’s just the wind, nothing more.

Mine too, after I caught on to all the religious symbolism that had gone way over my head when I first read the book. Hope you liked! :)

Such a chilling line to sum up a chilling fic. I really hoped someone would write Narnia fic when I saw this picture, and you do it complete justice. Thank you. <3
