Summary: An innocent game of chess takes an unexpected turn when the Knight
presses his own agenda against his Queen rendering her powerless. No
longer in control and completely at his mercy, she has no choice but to
submit and obey.
A new one shot that I had to write, as the idea wouldn’t leave me. It’s not what I normally write, but decided to try something new. :D

This list was created by comparison of current number of fics with data gathered for the 2015 AO3 Ship Stats. Values are only approximate, but this list gives some idea of the most popular pairings in the last 13 months (from July 2015 to August 2016).
There are 63 M/M pairings on the list, 19 F/M, 7 F/F, 5 Gen and 6 Other.
(Please note that on AO3, ‘Name & Name’ indicates platonic
relationships (Gen), while ‘Name/Name’ is used for romantic pairings.)
Of the 200 names on the list, 34 are women and 7 are characters of ambiguous gender. 49 are POC, and 15 are racially ambiguous.
For more information about the AO3 Ship Stats project, please check out this year’s post, and the accompanying FAQs. A text-only version of this data is beneath the cut.
