    Summary

    Novigrad was no more, and this, this was a tragedy. "Just put the bodies into bags, they're identified and there's nothing for you to do here. We'll ship them off as soon as it's morning," they had told her. Darcy swallowed another lump in her throat as she signed 'Tanja Ivanovna Mirkova' on the tiny label. This was so unfair.

    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

    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.

    Summary

    Amanda is leaning against the wall, grin unfitting for the parking lot of a mental health clinic. "Pizza?"

    “So I’m just here to pay for your food?”

    Amanda grins, nudging their shoulders together. “Basically.”

    Farah rolls her eyes, but smiles nonetheless.

    -

    Farah sees a therapist. It's a strange journey, but not one she needs to take alone.
