    Summary

    Let’s talk about what Susan Pevensie forgets: her older brother’s face, the sound of dryads gossiping in the leaves, and occasionally her house keys.

    Susan forgets the tune of her favorite Narnian lullaby, the one Mrs. Beaver had sung to Lucy when they were still small, the one Susan had planned to sing to her own children, back when she had thought they would be there forever.

    They say Susan forgets Narnia, but she doesn’t forget all of it. She puts it aside. She forgets faces and names, tax rates and the color of her favorite court shoes. Susan never forgets the weight on her shoulders that came from that responsibility, that power, that loss. She sometimes forgets she is strong enough to carry it.

    Sometimes she remembers.

    Summary

    Can we talk about Lucy Pevensie?

    Let's talk about Lucy riding to war to defend Archenland, her hair braided back, her bow string pulled back to her cheek. Let's talk about her clear, clear eyes sighting down the arrow shaft.

    Lucy worked in the healing tents after battles. She kept her magical vial tucked in a pouch that hung over her heart and learned to bind wounds and splint limbs.

    Peter went green at healing tents the way he never did at war, but he did a walk-through anyway, after every skirmish, each pitched fight. He clasped hands and thanked them, took soldiers' letters for their sweethearts and made sure they got delivered.

    Lucy tied her hair back, rolled up her sleeves, and went to work.

    When the Pevensies tumbled back through the Wardrobe, after a decade and a half of rule, Lucy left her healing vial behind. Peter left his sword and Susan left her horn, but the space over Lucy's heart felt cold for the rest of her life.

    “Jane, you’re an astrophysicist, not a storm chaser,” said Erik Selvig, and he was wrong. She was just an astrophysicist too.
