YMMV: The Last Battle

  • Broken Base: To this day, many fans are sore at Lewis throwing Susan under the bus out of nowhere, and for seemingly no story purpose.
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: A fairly well-known one. Everyone died and went to Heaven, er, Narnia. But not Susan, because since she no longer believed in Narnia, she didn't join them on the journey where they all died. C.S. Lewis stated in a letter that she could get to Narnia "in her own time."
  • Ho Yay: There are many yay-inducing moments between Tirian and Jewel the Unicorn, but this one takes the cake:
    "Kiss me, Jewel," he said. "For certainly this is our last night on earth. And if ever I offended against you in any matter great or small, forgive me now."
    "Dear King," said the Unicorn, "I could almost wish you had, so that I might forgive it. Farewell. We have known great joys together. If Aslan gave me my choice I would choose no other life than the life I have had and no other death than the one we go to."
  • Word of God/Shrug of God: Susan missed the train this time, but Lewis asserted all hope wasn't lost for her, and she still has a chance to join her family later.
