Read "Elegant and Fine"

Here's a wonderful fanfic about Susan's relationship with Narnia, "Elegant and Fine," as bittersharp as cider apples.

It is  possible to live a whole life outside of time, and then double back to one's current life, pick up the pieces and go on.  But it's a thing best done by experts, by people who already remember other lives.  You learn how to deal with it.  Four novices?  It would've been a wonder if even one  of them had managed.  That always snagged at my attention, reading Narnia.  When I write about things like that, the results tend to be much darker, although similarly sublime.
