    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.'

    Vera Brittain, from England’s Hour

    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.
