I remember reading a fanfic years ago about susan that tied up Susan's ending so so much better wish I could find it. It's canon as far as I'm concerned. I mean I get that CS Lewis was going for a valuing worldly stuff over eternal rewards symbolism and etc but yeah same here that ending always made me sad and angry
Yeah I get what he was going for but like…why do that to Susan? Even the kids parents were there (if I remember), why not make them one of the ones that couldnt go to heaven? They werent even characters. Hell characters who didnt even like Aslan got in! Like I appreciated that even the Atheists got into heaven (even if they werent exactly enjoying it) but then Queen Susan doesnt???
Like sure maybe she did later, but now poor freakin Susan whole family just died and shes alone.
…..although I just looked it up and saw this on the wiki “ C.S.Lewis had planned to write a book called Susan of Narnia, to reveal what became of Susan after 1949. Unfortunately, Lewis died before he could start writing. “
Well…maybe that would have fixed my issues with that ending but unfortunately we have to take the books as they are. And as they are she got a shit ending
