    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 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.

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

    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.
