So this list is going to be fairly short since for the most part I think knowing about character's continued lives more likely than not ends up being a bit depressing. But I want to know SO BADLY about the characters I put in 1 and 4, that I decided that I would go ahead and make this list.
1. Lyra Silvertongue from His Dark Materials

When I saw this topic, I IMMEDIATELY thought of Lyra (although I think there may actually be a book on her later life?). More than any other character on this list, Lyra is the one I want to know about as an adult, because I imagine she'd be just as (if not more) fierce and amazing as an adult.
2. Susan Pevensie from The Chronicles of Narnia
Art by: loreley25
Because I HATE how it ended for her. I don't think there's a single book that makes me feel so much unfairness for a character. (Ok there probably is but I'm not going to think on that because then I'll feel angry) I mean, how must it have felt to lose your ENTIRE family in one go? Just because everyone else got to be happy doesn't mean that that wouldn't have been an absolutely shattering event for Susan. And all just because she liked lipstick.
3. Saaski from The Moorchild
Art by: ignusfatuis
Saaski felt like a total kindred spirit when I read this story (a billion times) as a kid. I'd love to know where she went after the book ends, and how much her fae nature vs. her human nuture affected her as she grows up.
4. Lirael from the Abhorsen Series
Art by: LauraTolton
Ok can we just take a moment to admire how AMAZING this work of art is??? It's GORGEOUS! (Actually, it turns out that the Abhorsen series has some of the most beautiful fan art out there - seriously to a google image search! And you should totally check out the rest of her abhorsen art, it's a treat.) And I LOVE the redesigns for the Abhorsen series (done by Sebastian Creative) and I really, really, REALLY want to buy specifically the books with those covers!! It makes me want to do a post just on Abhorsen art. Anyway. Sidetracked, this is supposed to be about characters not art! Lirael is my favourite human character of the series and I would love to see how her life has changed SPOILERS!!! after discovering a family who loves and accepts her, after losing her hand and Dog, and what it's like training/going on missions with Sabriel. Plus I want to know if any sexy times happen with Nick. (Can they? Can they pleeeeeeaaasse?)
5. Sunshine from Sunshine
Art by: ab-insula-Avalonia
Ok, I've used this fan art before, but there is a dearth of Sunshine fan art out there. I don't think there are many instances where one can describe a vampire novel as a slice of life feel, but this one definitely fits the bill. Like with all slice of life stories, there's always the sense that things continue on you just don't know in what way, so I would LOVE to know where her story goes from here.
