** while Neil Gaiman's "The Problem of Susan" isn't canon, it does bring up an excellent ''and unavoidable'' point:[[spoiler: dozens of people must have died in that train crash. Susan was related to six of them, and knew at least another two quite well (and Diggory and Polly are never mentioned to have any living relatives). Susan would have '''had''' to identify everyone except Eustace, and she probably came across his corpse at some point as well, especially if her Aunt and Uncle weren't anywhere nearby and she therefore had to identify him too... and ''how many other'' horrifically dead people did she have to look at first???]]

Added DiffLines:

** which leads to some interesting ideas about Susan's disbelief in Narnia, doesn't it? Especially when you realise that shortly after ''Prince Caspian'' she was whisked away from everyone else who she could safely talk to, and considering the Naval battles of WW2 (especially once the US joined the war, which seems to be approximately when ''Prince Caspian'' takes place, at least from the movie) she was probably stuck there for quite some time... possibly even years.

**Just like Jesus forced to flee from Herod? That in itself is a Fridge brilliance.

* Why are the wolves so loyal to the White Witch? Well, aside from being evil, they like her never ending winter because winter is a good time for real wolves unlike most other animals. The shortage of food weakens the prey, and snow slows the prey down and weakens it further, so wolves eat better in winter compared to any other time of the year. This was probably not intentional or realized by the author, but it is a explanation beyond "they're just evil."

* When Edmund meets the White Witch, he's very enthusiastic about getting some Turkish Delight from her. Remember that back in England, it's WorldWarII, so everything is rationed and luxury foodstuffs are in short supply. The Pevensies probably haven't had any of their favourite sweets for ages.
