ineptshieldmaid: Susan - Not the girl you think you are (Narnia - Susan - not the girl you think )

Alright, let's kick this off with a simple question: who's your favourite woman of Narnia?

Has your preference changed since you first encountered Narnia? Have the new movies influenced your preference?

If you create fanwork, is your favourite character also the woman of whom you write/draw/create other fanworks most often?

Introduce yourselves and get chatting in the comment threads :D.


Hi, I'm Inept, and my favourite character from the Narnia books is Aravis. She's been my favourite since I was a wee squidget, listening to the cassette recordings and reading the school library's copy of The Horse and His Boy. I've always had a soft spot for women in armour, and I liked Aravis' stubborn nature, and her confidence in herself, even as that shaded into arrogance and pride.

The female character whom I write most often, though, is Susan. The new movies definitely influenced my preference here, although I usually write bookverse: I like exploring the themes of girlhood/adulthood, power and sexuality which the PC movie in particular brought out in Susan.

What about you folks?

Hi, I'm Tree. My favourite Narnian woman is probably Jill, though I've never written her. I like her guts and her stubborn sense of practicality (learning archery in case she went back to Narnia!), for smuggling her Narnian clothes home for a party, and above all for the "Whatever I do, I won't get the bowstring wet" line in The Last Battle.

I'm also very fond of Aravis and Lucy, but I think I probably identify most with Jill. (I'm not an aristocrat or good with horses, and I'm not a natural mystic, either!)

I've spent most time writing Susan, though - as a child, I never particularly liked her, because I was never a "girly" girl, but recently I've been thinking a lot more about her. I write bookverse, but I suppose, like Inept, I can thank the films for sparking my interest in her.

I'm hoping this comm will inspire me to write more fic!

I always loved Lucy, but have recently come to like Susan more as people post more thinky stuff about her.
