    Summary

    'Under bombs and guns, men are carried across the Channel, not only by troop-ships, but by private yachts, river tugs, harbour life-boats and coastal pleasure steamers – the ‘Saucy Sallies’ of the summer season. The rescuers are not wholly male. ‘Blast my sex!’ cries a girl who offers her private yacht, to be told that men alone are eligible. The powers-that-be turn a blind eye in her direction, and suspect that she finds her way to Dunkirk.'

    Summary

    "Anyway, we walked for a while, and I remembered how nice it is to have a sister you can count on. I'm-- we're-- excited to see you both, just so that we can have two more honorary sisters to have our backs and not force us to practice sewing on buttons."

    A study in sisterhood, between Nancy and Peggy Blackett and Susan and Titty Walker.

    Summary

    Written for the Queer Fest Prompt: Susan Pevensie; Susan didn't die when her friends and family did...not because she's no longer a friend of Narnia, but because Aslan still has plenty for her to do back on Earth--coming to terms with being lesbian, bi, trans or genderqueer, for one thing, and finding ways of helping and/or supporting people like herself in post-WWII Britain, for another.

    Summary

    An epilogue to "The Picts And The Martyrs" that explains some apparent incongruities between that book and Halotolerant's superb "On The Burning Deck". There may be a slight anachronism in that the discoveries that ethylene is synthesised by plants and is responsible for fruit ripening weren't made until 1934 and 1935 respectively whereas the P&M is generally reckoned to have taken place in 1933. However Arthur Ransome wasn't entirely consistent with his timelines either.
