That's an interesting combination; maybe you're right. Please explain why the 2. Qxd7 is necessary so I more fully understand.

This variant is poor, because white is very likely to win.

After 1. Qaxf7+ Qxf7 2. Qxd7+ Bxd7 3. Rxa7 white is up the exchange rook for queen.

There are some other things to which you could add cross-references here.
One is the film Nine Queens, as a sizeable number of variants with film
connections (though usually more deliberate than this) is building up.
The
other is the variant Power Chess, alas only shown as an implementation
(/play/erf/PowerChs.html), in which Queens
replace
the Rooks, Bishops, and Knights.

There are some other things to which you could add references here. One is the film Nine Queens, particularly as film-themed variants seem to be coming into fashion again. The other is a variant, whose name escapes me, in which Queens replace the Rooks, Bishops, and Knights. Perhaps someone who can remember the name could post a comment giving it.
