We need to talk about Susan Pevensie by dirgewithoutmusic or here A lion told her to walk away, and she did. He forbade her magic, he forbade her her own kingdom, so she made her own.Susan Pevensie did not lose faith. She found it. A short, sharp and enjoyable piece that empowers Susan rather than, as I see it, degrades and devalues her as the books appear to do. Although I accept that a perception of Susan's 'fate' is coloured by your attitude towards the heavy Christian symbolism of the books. I did read Neil Gaiman's short The Problem of Susan, and while interesting I found the ending quite disturbing and much prefer this story which is part of a series.
