This guy should totally start another show, “Live lessons with Billy Thatcher”.

Oh Billy. You're so Billy. And super major bonus points if someone retroactively figures out who he's based on. >:D

@Arcblade @Jamsterbuggy: Bobby Fischer doesn't sing nearly enough for that. Though... Billy doesn't either. yet. **files this comment under MorphE musical and stores in the back recesses of the mind**

Billy has some inspirations from a fair number of chess players both real and fictional. I try to learn a lot from the real people that play at Billy's level. Though my pals over there are referring to Mr. Freddie Trumper of Chess, who is really very much a Fischer inspired character anyway. But as for media visible ones, Fischer and Carlsen are both inspirations for me.

Though Carlsen is an incredibly diplomatic and charismatic guy and I think Billy doesn't have half his social grace. I keep myself informed on a lot of chess players to try to make a believable one.

First frame, you've got "Billy's" starting the sentence instead of "Billy". "Billy's turned" doesn't work.

Well, at least she put an exclamation point at the end and furrowed her brow this time.

@burningtyger: Much appreciated, but in this case I'm totally joking. This story is way too big to be condensed into standard two-act format, unless you're going for something more akin to a Philip Glass opera, in which case.... hahahaahaha VERY NO.

In the event that future songs DO happen, I will be writing the lyrics myself with the help of my teammates - although I did enjoy the ones you wrote for the other song :D

@Shadowednavi: I may continue doing some more for fun, or as fan works. Might I also submit some tunes for your consideration, such as a battle theme?
