Summary: Some lads stand out when they're called up.
Why: OK, so here's a question. How do the Pevensies cope with the 'real world' after their time in Narnia? We see a little bit of this in Prince Caspian, but not enough, in my opinion. This is one possible answer, based on the idea of first Peter and then Edmund ending up in the army.

Gunbunny uses outside perspective perfectly in these stories, showing just how out of place the Pevensies really are, and the ways that it simultaneously benefits them and isolates them. None of these stories is very long, and the rating doesn't go above PG-13, and yet there's something dark about them. Maybe it's the glimpse of the skills that they learned in Narnia, or maybe it's the question of why they needed those skills at all. Either way, it's a fascinating look at the way that Peter and Edmund fit back into the world, and the places where they make the world fit around them. My only regret is that we only see Susan and Lucy in the last fic; I'd really like to see more of how they're coping as well.

Summary: “You,” Edmund tells Caspian drunkenly, “are very young.”
Why: This story does a wonderful job of handling the Pevensies feelings, both on leaving Narnia and on returning to it as children once again. In particular, I really liked the perspective that the author gave on Peter because even though I understood a little of what he was feeling, at the same time I felt really annoyed with him. This look inside his head really helped me with that. Also, the interactions between all of the Pevensies were really lovely. And I'll admit, I'm a huge fan of drunk!Edmund. ;)
