Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
Bit hard to picture Faith as Domino, but I have a feeling that it's going to be interesting to see the results of this nevertheless...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Interesting.

when you mentioned Black and White and knocking them all down, I have to admit I thought of an old Cat's Laughing song, Black Knight's Work. Very chess oriented, that one. (Between Katherine "Kitty" Pryde's love of the band back in the day and the fact of the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle being chess-themed, this kind of imagery and association's to be expected..)

I first ran into the song in another fanfic, "More Real Than Real" over at Outpost Daria. I am copy/pasting it below for amusement's sake.

~~

Jalura claps once, and the band begins to play, a rockin' little intro.


Black blood, and risky business;
High affairs that never see the sun.
Cold steel, and loaded pistols;
Someone's got to see the work gets done.

When the Black Knight moves,
You can taste the trouble in the air.
You can hear the city
Talking like it doesn't care.

Between the darkness and the light,
Somebody's will gets done tonight.
Before the Black Knight moves again,
You better not be there.


Back streets, and lonely faces;
Where you do the kind of things you do.
Black cloaks, and hidden faces;
When we gonna get a look at you?

When the Black Knight moves,
You can feel the darkness coming on.
You can hear the city
Hide itself away 'til dawn.

Between the knife edge and the skin,
Maybe you'll see the fix go in.
Before the Black Knight moves again,
You'd better be long gone.


[Long instrumental showcase for the members of the band]


No words, you keep your silence;
People talking whispers where you are.
I hear -- the sounds of violence;
Tell me, brother, where'd you get those scars?

When the Black Knight moves,
You can feel a chill across the board.
You can hear the city
Asking what he's looking for.

Between the living and the dead,
You just might see a flash of red.
Before the Black Knight moves again,
You'd better see no more.


You're a man who knows his business;
You can see the Master Plan.
When you play your own position,
You're the Instrumental Man.

When the whole world comes down crashing,
Would the high-born fall as well?
If you kick the table over,
Send the pieces all to He-e-e-e-e-ell.


[Second long instrumental showcase for the members of the band]


Dark deeds, and secret matters;
You can fix it but it doesn't last.
Bright flash; the mirror shatters:
Who's reflected in the broken glass?


When the Black Knight moves,
You can feel a hand disturb the game.
You can hear the city
Asking for the White Pawn's name.

When the Black Knight moves,
You can feel a hand disturb the game.
You can hear the city
Asking for the White Pawn's name.

Between the black squares and the white,
There's gonna be a sacrifice tonight.
Before the Black Knight moves again,
You'd better do the same.

~~

How well does that fit? *shrug* you tell me.
Personally, I think that if this Faith's anything like the canon, that little ditty's got her work cut out for her..

Oh, yeah; http://outpost-daria.com/fanfic/more_real_than_real.html (Since we now have Daria fic here, I figure providing the address for this is only fair.)
