to notice that Edmund's arc in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is an in some ways perfectly straightforward retelling of Kay's arc in 'The Snow Queen'. In other ways not so straightforward, and Gerda doesn't come into it at all, because Aslan, but the beginning and middle of the fairytale are spot-on.

Also Charles Wallace Murry in Wrinkle in Time feels like a similar arc. Like Kay he starts out and ends sickeningly sweet, and like Edmund his weakness is his intellectual hubris. And Meg, of course, is his Gerda.
