I love writing the Starks in modern day. I’ve noticed a running thing in a lot of people’s writing has been making Robb, Sansa, and Arya a good number of years older than Bran and Rickon because we all know how protective the three of them would be over their baby brothers.
Chessis a game of strategy, and while all pieces have an assigned value at the start, during play, strength is constantly shifting and changing, depending on the moves. But the overall outcome remains the same. The King is the central piece, the Queen is his strength and protector, and the other pieces act on their behalf, to guard and capture.
