Hi all, I come bearing fic. It is, sadly, not new fic, but on the off chance you haven't seen it before, may I present a Problem of Susan fic, And After Darkness, Light.
Characters: Susan (unsurprisingly, it is Susan-centric), Lucy, Aslan (sort of), OCs
Words: 7222
Notes: Character death as per canon (off stage); some fairly graphic violence (in the context of a dream, but still). The fic was written in an attempt to provide a more satisfactory resolution to Susan's story without either ignoring the big problems with Lewis' handling of it in The Last Battle, or rejecting the Christian themes underlying Narnia. How well it worked is of course for the reader rather than the author to decide!

Also, congratulations, you're now the owner of our first author tag!

I note you haven't nominated a rating: could you nominate one from General / Teen+ / Mature / Explicit? I want to get a ratings tag system going so that, eventually, one can search the comm by rating as well as by character and by creator.

Awesome. Thanks, I understand that ratings are a bit of a bastard, which is why I've gone with just four categories instead of the five or six you get for movies :D

And I do intend to read this fic - it's been sitting in my to!read file until a day comes along when I want to poke my religious angst but don't think it's likely to make me miserable in the process. :)

Some days I'm out to make MYSELF miserable! I'm a bit leery of poking my religious angst since I had a bad run-in with Diane Duane, though.

I appreciate the fact that your summaries are pretty clear about what religious content I'm going to get :D. Narnia fandom can be a bit of a terrifying lottery: some days I get surprise!incest, some days I get surprise!allegory...
