    Summary

    Set in a non-bending AU, Azula and Katara are emerging Pai Sho prodigies, destined to eventually battle for the title of world champion. Covering an entire decade of their lives, this is a story about how their initial rivalry grows into mutual respect and friendship, before blossoming into something much more than that. Heavily inspired by the Netflix show The Queen’s Gambit. Most of our favorite ATLA characters are Pai Sho players. Azutara is endgame, duh.

    Summary

    Penelope Featherington's father had left his family in financial and social ruin, and now it was up to Penelope to save her mother and sisters.

    Penelope and her family leave the 'ton with nothing, but return months later in reasonable fashion.

    The Bridgerton family had always had a soft spot for Penelope Featherington, and with news of her and her family's return they insist that the Featheringtons stay with the Bridgertons during this years season.

    Although, Penelope has changed. She no longer worries about typical protocols in the 'ton like being escorted by a maid. Penelope disappears at odd hours, and has money that no one knows about. She has upwards of 4 glasses of champagne or wine at dinner. She no longer views herself as a respectable lady.

    And the Bridgertons will not have it, as they do their best to protect her reputation from ruin.

    Summary

    The infamous chess prodigy, Jeon Wonwoo, won against a local player named Kwon Soonyoung. However, since the tournament, the chess board he was able to envision on the ceiling before was replaced by Soonyoung’s friendly smile and peach-tinted cheeks that greeted Wonwoo that day.

    Years went by, Wonwoo was now a grandmaster ruling the chess world. However, on the day of the finale of the biggest tournament in history, he had to play against an unexpected opponent.

    He was no other than Kwon Soonyoung, a fellow chess grandmaster who recently went by the name Hoshi. No longer a friendly smile and peach-tinted cheeks, it was all cold stares and greed to win.

    Summary

    The thing about chess (and society), Roy thinks, is that it’s an inherently sexist game. From the time he’s learnt how to move pawns and rooks, chess has always been a male-dominated world — on the streets, at the bar, in the military. The books he’s read have only ever remembered the great achievements of great men. Alekhine. Morphy. Capablanca. Not Polgar, not Menchik, and certainly not Stefanova. And even within the chessboard, it is all the same. It is all about protecting the king, even if it means ruthlessly sacrificing the queen. It is the king who gets all the glory and praise, all the applause for doing pretty much nothing.

    And the queen never gets anything in return.

    When he really thinks about it, Roy is not so sure it’s that different from real life.

    or

    Roy thinks about his favourite game and has feelings (for Riza)

    Summary

    The general details of their great rivalry are well known: how they clash in everything from playing style to general demeanor. What is far less documented is the way that Wei Wuxian always pays his greatest competitor a visit afterwards, regardless of the outcome of the match.
