My Little Pony needs more chess related art. And I don't know a thing about chess myself. But I love Twilight and Fluttershy.

So that helps.

I haven't played chess in forever, and I'm trying to convince my dad to get me a set.

You need is a 8x8 area/board, and use objects as chess pieces
Fluttershy: Checkmate...
Twilight: Wait, what?
Fluttershy: Um, don't be mad...
Twilight: I'm not mad, just surprised...  How did...?
Fluttershy: You were trying to use the Peruvian Gambit, it's a good tactic but largely useless against experienced players...

Heyo, that's a really cute little picture you got there, one that just suits my needs. You see, I'm writing a story that can be found here: [link] and I'd like to know if I could have your permission to use this as cover art when I submit to EqD. I'll be sure to credit you and all that jazz.

Sure, go for it! Give Qdwatch a nod, too - I don't have their devart, though, unfortunately.

You can tell Twilight just spotted a winning move.

Confession: I know nothing about chess so I don't even know if this is a legal board setup. It's a modified endgame puzzle I found online - modified because overlapping pieces blend into each other and it looked messy.

I had a friend of mine go through and teach me how pieces move and what castling is, but I've never actually played a game. I am a 26-year-old computer science graduate student. Don't tell my advisor, I think they'd kick me out of the PhD program.

If it helps at all, it's Fluttershy's move. Not many people probably care, but, you know, whatever you wanna do is fine... :iconfoalfluttershyplz

Fluttershy's in check from Twi's queen.

It's fine, dude. Don't worry. Nobody cares whose turn it is, you do amazing work. I'm a chess nerd.

It's just an excuse, which really isn't an excuse. I'm a sufficient geek that I really *should* be a chess nerd too, but it just never happened for a plethora of reasons.

Thanks though ^^
