Narnia Drabble: A Change of Diet
It hasn’t been a fun week – working when the Wombat is away gets to both me and the cat – but she’s home now. This drabble isn’t in celebration, it’s an expression of my grumpiness at her absence. ‘Chronicles of Narnia,’ some time during ‘Prince Caspian’, 100 words, PG13. Aslan’s not a tame lion. Warning: character death.


A Change of Diet

“Oh, Aslan, I’m so glad to see you,” Lucy said, throwing her arms around the lion’s neck.

“And I you, dear child,” Aslan replied, as she stroked his mane, “but I have grave news.”

“What is it, Aslan?”

“I’m afraid it’s particularly bad for you,” Aslan explained. “Wildebeest have become extinct in Narnia.”

“Why is that bad news for me?” Lucy asked. Then, as Aslan opened his mouth wide, she understood.

Peter stared, horrified, at Aslan gnawing on a small human thighbone. “Why?” he gasped.

“I’m not a tame lion,” Aslan replied, twitching his tail, “and I have to eat.”

Please say this was the Lucy from the BBC version...

Okay, I'll say that it was the Lucy from the BBC version. Although I might be lying, and it might really be the Disney Lucy...

Presumably Aslan always needs dessert, in either case...

I'm almost embarrassed to laugh at that one!

I was almost embarrassed to write it... but not quite.

Now I know why Shaka gets grumpy when CW is away.

Hey, I feed him!
ayinhara From: ayinhara Date: October 27th, 2009 10:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, but do you "grump" at him?

Please tell me Edmund's next? I never could stand him.

Yes, Edmund's next, and then Peter, but not Susan.

Nice one. Lucy is his favourite, after all...
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: October 27th, 2009 03:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
Tender, very rare, with absolutely no salad accompaniment.

Just a couple of tomatoes and a mushroom for garnish...

That's so wrong. :-P

But irresistible.

Works for me. That's basic strategy for deities anyway, isn't it? Accumulate worshippers then eat them if you have a surplus? Certainly works for Cthulhu...

The problem with all anthropomorphic talking animal stories is finding a food source for the carnivores. If you're going to eat someone who can discuss philosophy with you it might as well be a human as anything else.
