Yesterday Dave and I finally saw The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. (Admittedly, we were shooting for a 0930 showing, and made it there for 1615. Still, an improvement on previous attempts.)

My musings. )

On the plus side, seeing the new LWW finally shook free a not-quite-drabble that I started a couple of weeks ago--all [ profile] glammetalkitten's fault. Frozen is a gen drabble that arose from my ponderings on what long-term effects the Witch's magic would have. Um, spoilers, I suppose? *looks at flist* I'd be shocked amazed if any of you lot hadn't read the book at least once.

I have finally remembered the name of the book I wrote an essay on for my Revised Higher English, back in high school. After almost a month of searching my memories, wailing on IRC, being able to track down everyone else's childhood books except my own, and very determinedly not phoning my mother and asking her to look on the shelf by the door... I have triumphed!

The title just popped into my head, interrupting a very nice bunny for a Nightwing/Robin fic, but I'm so happy that I can forgive it that. No drum rolls necessary....
