Relationship: Edmund x Reader, Caspian x Reader (platonic)
Author’s Note: Edmund is my absolute weakness, writing this was an absolute pleasure to.write, and I hope you enjoy it
“For Narnia.” You whisper to yourself as you leap from a window and onto the back of a Telmarine soldier. The two small daggers attached to your forearms go into his neck quickly, making it easy for you to jump to a new target.
You roar out in anger and speed up your movements when you see a minotaur fall to his death. Your particularly loud battle cry draws some attention, Prince Caspian being amongst the heads to quickly shift your way before going back to watching their attackers. Caspian though, doesn’t put all of his focus back on his assailant, he quickly does away with the guard before slashing his way to you. “Y/N, what are you doing? You have studies here, a job, they will surely not let you back in with good graces after seeing you fighting alongside me.”
His words almost make you stop completely, but the sword aiming for your throat keeps you in action, “Caspian, these people are no people of mine if they wish you dead. Who am I to not fight alongside you, when even the extinct Narnians will?" Smiling wistfully at you, Caspian places a hand gently on your shoulder.
The moment is quickly ruined when you spot a Telmarine soldier behind Caspian, and he’s cutting the chain holding up the gate. "We need to go. Caspian, you need to get your men and go!” You yell, shoving the prince towards the gate. You aren’t far behind him, your arms and legs both moving furiously as you slash at soldiers and run with speed you had never known capable from within your body.
From the corner of your eye, you spot a particularly small satyr getting attacked, so changing your course, you go to the satyr’s aid, “Go! We have to get out now!” You shout, gesturing to the minotaur holding the gate open. The man nods his thanks to you before ducking beneath the gate.
Just as you get to the gate, the minotaur falls and tears spring to your eyes, for both the poor creature, and for yourself. There are other people at the gate with you, Narnians, but none of them have your focus. Your eyes are on Caspian, who is yelling for you, trying to go back.
Shaking your head, you lift one of your blades into the air, “FOR NARNIA!” The other Narnians join in your battle cry, all of you charging once more.
You know you’re outnumbered, and out-weaponed. What you don’t know, is that the griffin above your heads is holding King Edmund. Looking down at the scene below him, Edmund spots you, and though he doesn’t even know of your name, he does know that he can not bear to leave you down there to die.
“Do you think you would be able to get her without getting hurt?” He asks his steed. The griffin squawks out a reply, diving towards you on the ground. The hybrid manages to grab to just after you receive an arrow to the upper arm. You don’t have the energy to say or do anything on the flight to wherever the Narnians are staying, so you just stay as still as possible and focus on not crying.
* * * * *
You grit your teeth harshly as you pull the arrow from your arm. After having arrived, you immediately looked for a bit of privacy to stitch yourself. “You were very brave back there. Fighting your people for us.”
Looking up, you see the boy talking to you is the same one that plucked you from the fight. “Thank you.” You smile painfully. Putting your attention to the needle in your hands, you start to sew your wound shut, “Caspian told me that you’re a son of Adam. King Edmund the Just. Is that true?” You ask, glancing at him quickly at the end of your question.
Edmund clears his throat, before answering, afraid his voice will crack or squeak when he goes to speak to you, “Yes.” Is all he can manage before crossing the floor to be standing a little closer to you. “Well, King Edmund the Just, I am forever in your debt.”
This makes the young king furrow his brow, “What? What would make you say that?” He asks you with a scoff. With a quirked eyebrow, you hold the needle in it’s place so you can look the king in his face, “You saved my life. There were tons of Narnians, fighting a hopeless battle down there, just as I was, and you saved me, the one person fighting not even born into your people. Where I am from, something like that is worthy of eternal debt.”
Watching as you finish closing up your once gaping wound, Edmund shakes his head, “Well, you’re with us now, that won’t be necessary, and just Edmund is fine.” This makes you laugh - a sound Edmund never thought he’d love so much - before breaking the stitch string with your teeth and wiping your bloody hands on the men’s trousers you’re wearing, “Well then, Just Edmund the Just King, consider it a favor, instead of a debt. If ever you need anything, let me know.”
At that moment, Edmund could think of a thousand things he wanted from you, a kiss being amongst them - a sensation very new to him - but he settled on just one for now. “I’d like to know your name.”
The prince moved forward on his horse, toward the foreboding fortress. He was only fifteen, but he had enough experience in fighting in the battle like the upcoming one that he no longer got chills. It had become familiar to both he and his stead. The aforementioned German forest horse strode up to the rote iron gates, the smell of burning and blood bringing no deterrence to him. Dismounting swiftly, the prince walked up to the gates, looking for his target. One of the guards questioned why he’d come, the later replying that he was there to see the princess. Both guards nodded to each other and let them in through a side door, pointing him down to the the princess’ court. With a nod and words of thanks, he walked on with his stead, until the side door closed. As soon as it was shut, he was going through a passage way to the court yard, sword out and eyes open. what lied before him was a poor excuse of a beast. The creature was chained with metal that burned their scales and decorated with festering wounds. Their mouth was clamped shut, wings nailed down with iron stakes. The boy would have snarled at the scene, but one look into the mud colored eyes, and the knowledge he couldnt risk loosing his composure slapped him. That could cost him. Flicking his head in one direction to him, the horse went to work getting rid of some of the restraints. The prince trotted cautiously toward the nearest wing, sword sheathed and eye contact unbroken. Careful jiggle, pull, nail one out. Good. After the repetition of this meticulous process, one wing was free, two bound legs visible. An apollogetic look and the rivets were gently twisted out, the searing metal falling to the ground.
Just as the prince goes to release the other side of the dragon, a grunt interjects and a broad sword tries to make a statement out, but is blocked and countered with a scimitar. A push, and broad sword had stepped back enough for a blow to kiss his calves, leaving him on the ground. An adjustment of the prince’s hand and the man began to choke on his own blood. Moving on from the scuffle, he started on the other side. Time raced forward and stood still all at once, anxiously watching while trying to see what happened next sooner. Soon though, booth wings were free. Then, all their legs, tail free as well. all that was left was their maw.
Giving him a boost, prince and horse began to work on the blood rusted muzzle. those bolts took the longest. The horse nickered quite comfort. The prince hummed apollogies and encouragement. One bolt dropped. Then two more. five more. After fifteen bolts dropped to the red flaked dirt, the dragon was fully unchain and unbound. The once glasses-over mud eyes began to blink into vibrant orbs of flame. A choked roar came from the dragons throat, the prince grinning merrily. The three moved toward the gates sluggishly, the prince more concerned with the state of the dragon than quickly opening up the gates. But soon they were there, the horse kicking open the gates, the prince slashing through those that appose their exit, the dragon following behind.
At the days zenith, the small group was as far as possible from the once-cage, resting.
Running a hand through his hair, the teenager approached the dragons,“so, i’m Frederick and my friend and accomplice is Mora,” he gave a slight smile and wave. Mora gave a slight nod to the dragon and went back to grazing. The later, lifted their head shakily, flicked their tough and then within a blink, a ragged boy no older than Frederick was in the dragons place. With out warning he hurtled into Frederick, hugging him as best he can. “Th-thank you. So very much. i am Marcelous, and i am forever in your debt,”
Frederick hugged back, silently swearing to protect his new charge so long as he lived.
He may not have gotten chills from battle, but he did get butterflies from certain hugs.
Well, many manga are finally being adapted into animes, and just to name a few are….Berserk, D.Gray Man, and Boku No Hero Academia. While other anime’s are getting season 2′s.
But then, there are many anime that have been announced for even more seasons and some of the many hyped ones are Attack on Titan and Uta No Prince-Sama 4. But let’s not forget the fact that a lot of anime’s were announced of getting movies this year (and hopefully are released this year as well)!

At first I wasn’t impressed with this season’s series but after watching few pilot episodes, some stuck to me :)
Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi - mystery, time travel - starts great, the animation and style are lovely as well (reminds me of AZ’s style a bit)
Dimension W - cool concept and characters, I already caught up to the manga too and I assure you, it’s gonna get even better!
Prince of Stride - is there a season without sports anime these days… I tried, I told myself no, but my weeaboo kokoro told me yes. + there are so many of my favourite seiyuus here.
Dagashi Kashi - even though I haven’t tried any of these sweets it’s still fun to watch. + they did a small Gundam parody with Zaku looking like a condom, sold.
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar - has this SAO vibe, except nobody knows how they got there, no heath bars either. Art is pretty, hope the pacing’s not too slow.
Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu - expecting loooads of feels but also humor from this one. Always good to have a more ordinary story, ex-gang member trying to work in theatre? Hell yeah!
Divine Gate - elements-weapons wielding high schoolers and Divine Gate that apparently makes wishes come true. I’ll stick to it if Akane won’t be annoying me too much. I want to know what is the deal with Aoto and what are Arthur and Loki scheming, but I have a feeling I’ll be disappointed. And there’s that 3d made looking like 2d which I despise.
Schwarzesmarken - 80′s, divided Germany - cool setting, although how did they get these mecha in 80s I have no idea… It shares elements with Muv-Luv Total Eclipse which is both exciting and worrying, hope it won’t go the harem/fanservice route like the earlier one. Total Eclipse had a stronger introduction though.
I also tried watching Oshiete! Gyaruko-chan and Ojisan to Marshamllow but these are for those who like stupid humor.
Continue watching: Gundam Iron-Blooded Orhapns, Ace of Diamonds 2, Haikyuu 2, Gintama, Gundam Thunderbolt (muted, cause jazz)
OP&ED mentions: DOES is back with another great Gintama opening ;; Dimension W, Prince of Stride and Iron-Blooded Orphans have pretty catchy songs too
Like I’ve mentioned before, I won’t be able to do my usual weekly rankings for this season (or be around a lot in general), but if anyone wants to talk about any of the shows I’m watching feel free to hit me up, I always do enjoy discussing anime :D
Haikyuu S2I’m not ready for the Seijou match ;A;
Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu Hands down my favorite new show this season.
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi (oficially titled ERASED in English, but damn is that a terrible translation and completely overlooks Kayo’s composition)
Durarara!!x2 Ketsu. I’m not ready to say goodbye to ‘bukuro ;A;
AssClass S2: I think this is the only comedy I’m following, so it’s good that it’s a great one.
Lupin III: Continuing in its full greatness from the last season. I love this Lupin series, it’s just so much fun
Akagami no Shirayuki-hime S2: This is my weekly dose of pleasant-looking fluff. Zen’s overprotectiveness is starting to wear on me a little though
Gundam; Iron Blooded Orphans: It may be this current arc we’re going through, I’m still enjoying the show and I love the characters, but it feels like its meandering a little/going nowhere
Prince of Stride: I do love and enjoy this show and its characters, it just doesn’t leave me begging for more week after week. There’s literally nothing wrong with it, it’s just a different type of dumb fluff and I couldn’t put it in the same league as Lupin or Showa Genroku
Fairy Tail: At this point it seems obvious that the anime adaptation won’t get better, period. Even when they animate the parts I love from the manga, like Aquarius’s sacrifice or the on-going Mavis story, I can barely muster any enthusiasm for it because it’s just so… dispassioned. I don’t feel any love from the people animating this. The fact that the muddy colors are obviously here to stay -I expected them to go back to a brighter scheme for Mavis’s story, but it was a hopeless dream- doesn’t help at allIt has nothing to do with having read the manga, I’ve read HQ too and that anime is at the top of my list.
Dimension W: It’s an okay show, it has just failed to grasp me and its relatively tame yet awfully forced fanservicey moments are just eeeeh. I’m honestly more hooked in its look than in the story or characters. Could drop any moment.
Ajin: So far it feels more like tryhard edgy grimdrak stuff, but at least Kai is a really likable character. The CGI looks like literal poop though. Honestly I’m just hanging on becaue the manga has received so many awards and the cover of volume 1 looks so cool.
Watching out of spite/nothing better to do
HaruChika: It’s not boring but it isn’t entertainment, it just kind of exists. Plus, the two leads are kind of insufferable in diferent ways, I find Haruta exposing people’s painful memories and vulnerable feelings to everyone is a rather awful way to recruit people for the band.
GARO: Guren no Tsuki. Same as above, not boring but not entertaining. I do like Yorinobu, he’s probably the only character I like at this point. Honoo no Kokuin must be rolling in its grave. Honestly just watching to complete it at this point.
(this gif does not represent the show itself but my feelings about it lmao. Same Alfonso, Same.)
BBK/BRNK: I did say I quite enjoyed the second episode, but as the week passed by, I realized I didn’t really care about what happened next. I’m also bitter because the first episode gave us all this backstory about MC’s cool sister and she seems to have e disappeared from existence, she’s not even in the opening, which gives me little hope about her ever coming back, and I don’t care about the cookie-cutter mini Power Rangers team. I’ll keep up with it if I can, but since it comes out in the weekend, chances are I’ll fall behind eventually.
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar: This show is just… it has some brilliantly quiet moments, like most of episode 2, and then it just has to literally shit the bed with 10 minutes-worth of gross “guys peeping on girls/guys wondering about girls without underwear/guys blaming the girls for wearing provocative clothes” and I’m jjust like… I really want to like this but the neverending sequence of Haruhiro pondering about how his female guildmates are not wearing panties was just so bloody disgusting it’s a miracle I made it to the inconsequential second half of the episode. It’s a shame because it looks gorgeous, but I’m ready to drop it if it doesn’t stop the gross bullshit.
Divine Gate: In a season flooded with Meh-diocrity, this one manages to earn the golden poop for worst dialogues and most heavyhanded story-telling. Emo Kylo Ren’s got nothing on Aoto, who puts ice cubes on his ramen because HE HAS NEVER EATEN WARM FOOD OKAY.
*must clariy that when I say I watch them when I got nothing better to do, it means I watch them in my rare off-time during work, time in which I can’t work on my dissertation, obviously
Dropped: Acive Raid, Phantom Colors Myriad World, Phantasy Star Online 2, Norn9 and Nijiiro Days, simply because they all bored me to tears and/or were stupid beyond comprehension (the first two in particular. Ugh, the limbooobs)
