* It's just one of those things, like Tumnus's umbrella and Mrs. Beaver's sewing machine. Lewis wanted a warm welcoming Old Narnia and decided that should include AVeryBritishChristmas. So sue him.

***People turned into stone by the White Witch are apparently in a state of suspended animation with no awareness of the passage of time. Eustace is miserable as a dragon because he realises he's cut off from the entire human race. The Dufflepuds are still conscious and active and not deprived of the companionship of their own kind, so it's not really comparable. It's also reasonable to assume the only reason they thought they were so ugly is that their chief said so. When Lucy (who wins their respect because she 'outwitted' the magician) tells them they look very nice they happily agree. "Very nice we look. You couldn't find a handsomer lot."

* So in Prince Caspian 1000 Narnia years are 1 year in Earth time, right? So what's the timespan between Caspian and Dawn Treader? It would seem that some period of time has passed, but how long can it really have been?

** In TVOTDT, the characters state that 1 year has passed on Earth and 3 years in Narnia since PC. Remember, there is no "X years on Earth = X years in Narnia" rule. The rule is: no matter how much time you spend in Narnia, you always return to Earth at the exact moment you left; and on Earth, you never know how much time has passed in Narnia. In one Earth year, any time between 0 seconds and 1 quadrillion years could have passed in Narnia.

*** Exactly. London could actually survive Jadis. I'm pretty sure Reepicheep would conquer Europe either for the challenge or because someone made a short joke.

** We know there are edible things (gems!) deep underground in Bism, which wouldn't be inhibited from "growing" by winter conditions on the surface. Perhaps the dwarfs used to trade with the Underworld folk, whose gemstones (and underground crops, maybe?) could still grow during the frozen times.

to:

*** The Archenlanders have had 100 years to establish an extensive smuggling operation for simple food that wasn't infused with Walter White's product, thus reducing the threat the witch poses to Archenland by ensuring fewer Narnians will actively work for her due to addictive magic candy.

*** Caspian may not have thought of it at the time and was shortly thereafter too preoccupied with a war for his life, while Dr. Cornelius deemed it necessary to save Caspian's life and was shortly thereafter preoccupied with avoiding torture and possibly execution/murder for his part in Caspian's escape. It's not that they didn't care, but there were far more pressing things for them to deal with. In contrast, Aravis essentially got away scot-free and bragged about what she did.

** Might also be the result of the BBC production, which recycled actresses for the two characters. Though to be honest, they're best off getting TildaSwinton to player her anyway, because the it's evident the movies miss something without her.

** This troper thought that it might be the Dwarves. In Book 7, they refuse to follow Aslan and instead bicker amongst themselves in the darkness, which sounds like what Lewis, who wasn't overly fond of Jews, might've thought of them.

\n*** What happens to her is obviously horrible when you think about it, but to say it's "supposed to be punishment and damnation" implies the book wants us to see it as some sort of retribution for Susan's actions, which I think is a lot more dubious. For starters, her doing the "right" thing wouldn't have prevented the deaths, just meant that she was among them. More significantly, the narrative never shows the slightest interest in how the deaths might impact on Susan; she's only briefly mentioned (before anyone knows they're dead) to explain why she's not present.
