This is amazing. I've never thought Susan's actions could be considered this way. Thought-provokingly brilliant!

I love this Susan with purpose. I hate how she was treated in the last book, and this potrayl is so refreshing and free of bitterness.

I love this. I, too, have always believed that Susan remained in the world for a purpose, and led a long and happy life surrounded by her children and grandchildren.

wow, great short

I like that, I actually like that a lot. I never enjoyed C. protrayal of Susan and the whole "not being a friend of Narnia" anymore, because she enjoyed life and had a little Phase where she enjoyed boys, fashion and the nice things in life.

Loved it! Absoloutely loved it. It's nice to finally see a story in which Susan was left behind because she still had a purpose on earth, and that she lived a worthwhile and fulfilled life and did earn the title of Susan the Gentle. Well done. I'm so pleased I found this story!

I love the usual stories about Susan - with her eventually coming back to the faith - but it's really great to see a new take on her story, too.
If you are looking for other stories in a similar vein, there was this really excellent crossover with Rise of the Guardians (don't ask me why, but it totally worked, even when it didn't make too much sense). The actual plot is totally different, but the Susan in it is very much the faithful, Gentle Queen of Narnia that you wrote here.

Amazing! Of all the possible future scenarios of Susan, I love this one the best!
| ChilliLemons chapter 1 . 7/13/2014
This is perhaps the finest oneshot in the fandom. It does such justice to Susan's character, and doesn't put down Earth in relation to Narnia. Susan truly seems like the Gentle Queen here. Wonderful characterisation. A marvelous read.

Lovely Truly a Beautiful fic

The way Susan is portrayed in The Last Battle, her accepting the human world and living in it seemed a negative thing. So thank you for this new take on Susan's life and outlook to Narnia, Aslan and moving on. I loved it.

This certainly puts a different perspective on what happened to Susan and what her life was about. Good story!
