    Summary

    This is not a metaphor. This is not an allegory. This is four kids- four full-grown adults- being told that their lives are useless, that the kingdom they built is not their legacy to hold onto. That the families they made and loved and worked for they are not allowed to keep.

    Narnia is not heaven; this is their home, which they have built and fought for and died for.

    Aslan rips them from this world, declares it anathema for them to return, and they could just let it sit, let themselves wallow in the lives they are now doomed to in the bodies they have been shoved back into-

    The legends will say that Aslan made a very foolish mistake when he banished the Pevensies from the kingdom, and they will be right. The Pevensies would have been content to rule their kingdom until the end of their lives, building an empire and bringing justice to the victims of the White Witch. They would have died heroes but not legends.

    In their quest to return to Narnia, the Pevensies learn about the possibilities of magic. Of the existence of worlds beyond Aslan’s creation. Of the lies of the great lion’s benevolence.

    They return to Narnia powerful, and godly, and very, very angry.

    Summary

    Susan has never had the greatest respect for linear time. Now, slipping through it like water through a sieve, she wonders if it hasn't just stuck around because no one's bothered to point out how ridiculous it actually is.

    Summary

    “Do you think they call it safehouse because it’s meant to keep us safe, or do you think they mean it like, the house is the safe and we’re the crown jewels?” Harley asks, running a hand over the espresso machine on the counter. It’s sleek and black, easily the most expensive thing in the house.

    “I think they call it safehouse but mean it like prison,” Floyd says, not looking up from his chart. He’s making a spreadsheet for house chores, so everyone can contribute to the group. It was only a little surprising, how quickly he went from Deadshot, the faceless assassin, to a mother hen the moment he was placed in charge of five criminals. June suspects it has something to do with the fact that he’s the only one of them who has ever been an actual parent. Maybe once those feelings start, they just never fade away. And since he can only see Zoe for one weekend a month, the rest of the Squad are acting as her surrogates.
