That was incredible. By far the best writing I've ever read.

Do you realize that when I first saw the title of this story I went back to my copy of MOBY to look for a chapter called "The Checkerboard?" I was almost surprised to find it wasn't there! You totally captured how he names his chapters and even the length makes it feel like a chapter from the book.

My favorite touch - thank you for putting Pip into this chapter! The way he echoes Mr. Starbuck's pleas, mocking him but (I think) feeling sorry for him, is so perfectly in character from the book. And Starbuck asking himself how different the two of them are really impressed me too!

Even if I didn't love your writing I would be so happy to see this category finally starting to fill up with excellent writing. Please keep up the good work!
