This collection will contain a variety of themes and ideas inspired by both the books and the films. I have no loyalty to any particular pairing in Narnia, and will quite happily cross them over with whoever I please. I do, however, love the character of Susan and have often wondered about her fate, so expect ideas around that. I also like exploring the darker, more adult nature of Narnia - the bits that the kids couldn't read.
That said, my first does look into this aspect of Narnia...The White Queen
Queen Susan the Gentle portrayed by Katie McGrath. Prince Rabadash of Caloremen portrayed by Sendhil Ramamurthy.
This particular piece is inspired by the 'romance' of Susan and Rabadash in The Horse and His Boy
. Although the story is Shasta's, there is clearly a far more adult story going on in the background framing Shasta's adventures. The title is based on possible names that Susan might be given in the Arab-esque Calormen - in this case, based on the colour of her skin, but also echoing the title of the White Witch.
Let me know what you think, and if anyone has any suggestions or ideas, please feel free to offer them. Expect Katie McGrath to be portraying adult Susan a lot. Although Anna Poppelwell is wonderful, Susan of the films is not quite old enough for 'Golden Age' pieces, and Katie McGrath in her role as Morgana (and actually Princess Margaret too) has some perfect pics.
