Games of Chess

 February, 28 2006

Stories in which the game of chess plays an important part...


Although I'm rubbish at chess, it does provide a good backbone for a story. Who else should be playing Faramir?

Could it be Queen's Gambit by A.L. Milton? Faramir takes his clothes off in that one.

Yes, that was it! "Faramir takes his clothes off" - as accurate and misleading as she promised in the intro. :)
I had forgotten that she gave Dwim and yourself credit for the chess game development.

For some reason, I have this strong feeling that Faramir and Eowyn play one game of chess in the course of their marriage, and it ends with her throwing the board at him ;-D

LOL! Yes, I could definitely see that one coming. *grins*

Faramir would be all about forward thinking and careful moves, Eomer would throw everything he had at the other side - risky, but sometimes it would pay off spectacularly.

What's funny about this to me is that Isabeau once described Imrahil and Andra playing chess and they had similar methodologies, Imrahil playing like Eomer and Andra like Faramir. Another reason Imri and Eomer get along so well! Maybe they should play each other.
