    Summary

    And what of Susan?

    What of the Queen, the mother, the lawyer and lover and no longer friend of Narnia?

    What heaven did she find, decades after she last saw her siblings and years after her lover died?

    She kept the faith for decades, kindled the memories of Narnia in children who never got to see it. She did not teach stories smeared in the green tint of nostalgia, though; she related facts, told stories about wars and kingdoms and diplomacy.

    What did she end up with?

    Summary

    Harry Potter meets Dean Thomas as a kid and they become best friends. One of Dean's mums, Susan, tells them fairytales about Narnia, about faith and power and cleverness. She warns them not to put their faith in thoughtless gods and old, "wise" men, to swear at the powerful and pray to no one but themselves.
    Their world changes.

    Summary

    Whenever Susan visits the Professor, she makes sure to take a trip to the room with the wardrobe.

    When she enters the room, she remembers fruitless attempts by Edmund and Lucy to return after their first expulsion from their kingdom. She remembers them returning day after day, for weeks and then months.

    She traces her fingertips along the wood of the outside of the wardrobe, but she never makes an attempt to open it. She isn’t even tempted to open the door. She doesn’t want to open the door, to see if Aslan has given her a glimpse into the world he never gave her siblings back when they needed it.

    She has more than made her peace with this world- she has fallen in love with it. She has fallen in love with the people here, her job, and her briefcase. She has no desire to return to her old kingdom, not when she has built her own here.

    -

    When Susan left Narnia, left paradise, she left one breathtaking world for another. She left the beauties of Beruna, the majesty of the Lone Islands and the grandeur of Cair Paravel, for two people who love her, a never-ending line of innocent defendants, and a small house made for three.

    (She cannot believe she made the wrong choice.)

    Summary

    “Forget” is a funny word.

    Susan does not forget Narnia, although sometimes she thinks that would be easier.

    Summary

    Susan Pevensie didn't think her life could get better: she had a job she loved, great friends, and Merlin had finally done something about them.

    Funny how a kidnapping can change everything.

    Time to get to work again.

    Summary

    But men, good ones or not, did one thing. They left her. As a result, Marion had seen so much more of the world than most women her age. Hell, she'd seen more of the world than most women alive. Her experiences were diverse, including things not right for "polite conversation." She would rather know more than be limited.

    Summary

    In this world, her family does not go out with a bang. It disappears, little by little, escaping back to the kingdom she once called home.

    Her world does not end. It just goes on.

    -

    She takes her war from the battlefield to the courtroom. She graduates law school, carefully clawing her way through every two-bit lawyer in her way. She knows how to negotiate, how to ply the response she wants out of people. She has two decades of experience over these other law students.

    Susan was known as the Marksman Queen. Is sinking her sights into humans at the defense table, aiming her words at those who claim falsehood all that different?

    She goes partying one night, dressed up in her best nylons with lipstick painted across her mouth. She is a force of nature, a Queen of this seedy college bar.

    This is not about vanity. This is about holding onto what she has left in this world, about building a Kingdom when a god cast her out of Paradise. This is about the power a dethroned Queen can hold in an imperfect world, the power Cupid can hold after she has lost her bow.

    Susan's family stays in Narnia to be better. She stays in England to make this world better.

But it's there, always in the shadows, and when her great-grandaughter goes missing, she calls on Jack to help her find a way. It's Jack who helped her find a way out of 1949, who gave her more than enough to hold on to, and who never stopped believing that families could be reunited.

    Summary

    She remembered what it was like to rule in Narnia. Gaining power in 1950s England is going to be a more complex, less straight-foward thing...
