Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

This is the first time I have stood in the marketplace and shouted.....

...well, actually it isn't, but fans of Dorothy Dunnett's Lymond books (at least those of a certain age) will recognise the reviewer's puff from the back covers of the 1970s paperbacks. But this isn't about Lymond or Dunnett, it's about Torchwood and Narnia. I've been a fan of the latter since my student days (about the same as Lymond, in fact) but never really got into the former other than noting its existence as a Dr Who spin-off.

Here, though, courtesy of a friend (also from those far-off student days) on LiveJournal, we have an amazing piece of fanfic (hate the word, but there it is). Amazing in the sense of being really well-written. Amazing in the sense of being a beautiful amalgam of the two storylines. Amazing in making sense of Susan's otherwise inexplicable (except in terms of Lewis's misogyny) disawoval of Narnia. Amazing in being extremely moving.

Make up your own mind.

And locks her in a drawer. Sounds like something Captain Jack would do (even if you don't watch him).
But it's Ara Jane and even Primeval that seem too infantile for me.
