Author's Summary:
In which the Pevensies trip, fall, and somehow end up in Torchwood. It's not Susan's fault she shot an alien that was trying to kill Jack Harkness.

(Note: this is the sixth fic in a series which, though it has its own story arc separate from those, does require some knowledge of the character of the Pevensies in those other fics so do read those first.  They're rec'd in their own post here because the two story arcs are very different)

Just as in the other fics of this series, the characterizations are fantastic and, at times, deliciously chilling.  This one doesn't highlight their competence quite like the arc before, and chooses to focus primarily on action rather than character though if you were left wanting more Susan and Lucy from fics 1-5, this one gives the girls their chance to shine.  This fic specifically is a great crossover (mainly Torchwood) that manages to keep me engaged and guessing even though I know all the canons involved.
