It's going to take me a while to get through these stories.  There are 39 of them of amazing quality.

To begin,

Fit To Be Tied, written for me, crack cross over in which, courtesy of Anansi the spider trickster, Susan romps through various fictional places dealing with a spider with a sense of humor,

The Rule of Threes Raid, also written for me, Susan is inserted into North Africa to mislead the Nazis about the upcoming invasion of the "soft underbelly of Europe" (a crossover with Rat Patron, which you don’t need to know at all), canon Narnia and my own The Stone Gryphon series

The Case of the Descending Debutante, Lucy, Edmund and Eustace, still with Harold and Alberta, post DT, invade Greece on a humanitarian mission with guest appearance by paratrooper Susan, is hilarious, amazing fun,

Chain of pearls (anklets of light) a beautiful, visual story about Eustace and faith as he visits India, and comes to see how elephants in Hinduism allows him to better understand the Lion in his own life, . Aspects of the Narnian fandom can be horribly critical of non-Christian belief systems, asserting that non-Christians have no business enjoying the Chronicles except as a path to Christian evangelization -- ironic given the popularity of the stories worldwide. For its respectful portrayal of another belief system, this story is multi-cultural gem and Eustace is the perfect voice and vehicle for it.

Dragons for xahra99 or xahra99

personal reflection )
I have really, really want to develop more of the Temeraire cross-over. So, here's a little bit, picking up after the end of Unquenchable Fire.

The wonderful Starbrow has now posted Enchantment Vast But Foolish, part 3 of the Scrubb/Pole adventure and romance. It's wonderful, with Eustace being the alluring yet oblivious man of science and Jill who has just had ENOUGH. Also rum. and odes to hips. And we meet Jill's parents and we get a wonderful look at Jamaica. And reptiles. It's wonderful and Starbrow did an amazing job. To quote her quoting me:
    In which there is a great deal of very fine rum, Jill has hips, and Eustace is an oblivious yet alluring man of science.

Pencildragon11/Oldfashionedgirl95 wrote Bedraggled As I Am, and if you've not had the chance to read it, do so and go tell her how awesome it is.

There's lots and lots of my head canon in both stories. Also, a joke has now started running about hips and Eustace Scrubb, alluring yet oblivious man of science, and the King's Poet. You can see the Twitter exchange that prompted [personal profile] metonomia to write poetry and then me to write comment fic here.

Next up, which I will post in a few days, is the first chapter of Winning His Spurs. I posted this in comments to the previous entry, but here is the preview again, Chapter 1, Return of the King
    The truck rattled and bounced on the rough road, leaving a cloud of red New Mexico dust in its wake. Peter smoothly downshifted and slowly turned down an even narrower road marked by an ox skull perched atop the fence post. Georgia had painted the skull years ago and it had become the symbol of Ghost Ranch. He and Mary had come here from the Everglades after Eustace had packed up and shipped out; Asim had finally had enough of the No Colored signs all over the American South and returned to England. So it had become just the two of them, more alone than either he or Mary had been in years, and first testing tentatively then enthusiastically embracing their new relationship. Peter felt some twinges of occasional, residual guilt, but no regrets.

Chapter 2, Thus should a knight rule himself, will follow.
