    Can we talk about Susan’s fabulous adventures after Narnia?

    (inspired by this quote)

    “There comes a point where Susan, who was the older girl, is lost to Narnia because she becomes interested in lipstick. She’s become irreligious basically because she found sex. I have a big problem with that.” – JK Rowling
