A promise, from me, to all writers:

If you're gonna have your characters play chess, and the way that goes is foreshadowing for the whole story? I will never pick up on it. Never gonna happen.

@Alexis not even a really dramatic shot where they sacrifice the queen?

@InspectorCaracal I mean, if you're gonna be openly shouting "EVENTS WILL BE TRANSPIRING IN A CERTAIN MANNER" at the camera, then, yes, I will assume the female lead / the spaceship / the antihero's principles is or are doomed.

And then I'll forget and be shocked an hour and a half later when she dies / it explodes / he is forced to commit a heinous act.

@Alexis @InspectorCaracal now I'm imagining a female spaceship-mind named "Anti-Heroes Have Principles Too, You Know".
