As we face off, the white and black
I stand beside my twin
See sunbeams fall through patterned cracks
That lie above this den

Of diamond, sir, my heart's composed
It makes me who I am
Across that heart I keep exposed
The mark of Superman

If in the end our paths should meet
Then head o'er heels let's go
Should safeguards fail, there's no retreat
As I bring forth the snow

It's been a long time since I last posted a riddle, and since most of the people have changed I should probably explain my peculiarly.

I write riddles in such a way that they sound kind of like they're describing one thing, but are actually describing something else completely unrelated, and title them "I'm not a..." whatever the distraction thing is.

In this case, the answer has absolutely nothing to do with anything even close to a chess piece.

Hi DD, nice to see a familiar face in the riddles section. No pwnage on this one, I'm genuinely staying away from anything having to do with chess.


Spoiler for ok

I'm afraid I've never read The Snow Queen before and had to Wikipedia it to see what it's about. (So obviously it's not the answer I had in mind.) Perhaps Kay and Gerda could represent the twins in the riddle, and the shattered mirror could be the riddle's diamond in the heart. But there are other clues like the sunbeam through the cracks and Superman reference where I can't see an analogy with the story, at least based on what I could find readily.

hi plasmid..... :D
cool riddle..... :thumbsup: :D

Hi EDM, and thanks! That answer works really well for the first stanza and a half, but the Superman clue is an important one to be incorporated into the answer, and the bit about going head over heels is also a reference to an aspect of the answer.
