Reviews for the chessmaster

I really really liked this. You did a very nice job of making the chess game easy to follow for people (aka me) who are not familiar with it. The melding of the two scenes - Emma and Regina's chess game and the battle - was also pretty seamless. It was very, very good. I quite enjoyed it, even if there wasn't totally a happy ending for everyone.

This is fantastic. I love how there's this clinical cleaness to the chess game coupled with the very real pain and blood on the real battlefield. Angst always carries the chance of going too far into heartbreaking to be enjoyable, but you nailed it. This story is beautiful and heartbreaking and perfect. Thanks for writing this!
