Another Country by Jay Tryfanstone

'She had blue eyes, Susan, a blue so dark it was almost black, and skin as white as the flesh of a snowberry...' An ambiguous, dangerous tale

[Added 30/12/2005; Drama; 1000-2500; Narnian Chronicles; Characters: Jill Pole, Susan Pevensie, Eustace Scrubb, Peter Pevensie, Edmund Pevensie, Lucy Pevensie, Jewel, Puzzle]

Further Up and Further In by Kyra Cullinan

'It's he always gives us journeys.' The new Narnia, in ripples outwards from Tirian & Jewel. Lovely details and a very canonical feel

[Added 03/01/2007; Drama; 1000-2500; Narnian Chronicles; Characters: Tirian, Jewel, Lucy Pevensie, Jill Pole, Eustace Scrubb, Edmund Pevensie, Susan Pevensie, Puddleglum, Tumnus, Aslan]

To hold back the night by Heliopause

'"The... the laying bare of the land—Sire, you see the terrible deaths of your people, but we two... we've both grown up with tales and pictures of a war close to our country, from before our time, and this looks to us like," she paused, uncertain of how the phrase would sound in Narnia. "like the creation of a no-man's-land."' A clever AU of The Last Battle in which Jill & Eustace's knowledge of both our world & Narnia helps to change everything. I'd love to read more in this universe

[Added 23/05/2015; Drama; 6000-20,000; Narnian Chronicles; Characters: Jill Pole, Tirian, Eustace Scrubb, Poggin, Jewel, Farsight, Father Time, Puzzle, OCs]
