PAUL AND THE HOMELESS KID. PERFECT SCENE. I HOPE THIS SHOW GOES ON FOREVER.
All Those Hours Spent at Tetris Was Not Wasted

From the Nibelungenlied: Kriemhild showing Gunther’s head to Hagen (Johann Heinrich Füssli, ca. 1805)
The German epic poem Nibelungenlied portrays Etzel as a noble and generous ally, while Atli in the Volsunga Saga and the Poetic Edda (as well as Ætla in Widsith) is a cruel miser. It is the latter description which appears in J.R.R. Tolkien’s adaptation of the legend, which was published in 2009 and titled, The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun.
Read this in class and was so happy when she finally cuts off Hagen’s head. My teacher tried to tell us he was a hero but I just kept thinking He’s a bitch!
Isaac in the hospitable which again just proves my point. He is always so brave and in every fight he gets his ass handed to him. But he is just so adorable because he picks himself up and heads right back in head first.
Okay, so I’m not at all a chess player but I’m trying to decipher each piece and I’m wondering if not only the pieces themselves mean something, but also the color of the piece.
Aiden and Ethan: Pawns
Okay, so let’s start with the King (Derek). In chess, the King is the most important piece in the game. If the King is captured, it’s game over. Currently, the King is one move away from checkmate (so Derek don’t do anything stupid because you have to live). If the King lives and can have his army corner the other king (let’s assume that Nogitsune!Stiles is the opposing King), Derek wins.
Next is the pawns. The pawns act like a wall against the heavy hitters; they’re typically the first to encounter the opposing pieces. The pawns on Stiles’ board are Scott, Ethan, Aiden, and Isaac. The first three are still in commission, but Isaac’s pawn is off the board. Now, this could mean two things: a) The Nogitsune is done with Isaac and won’t be using him anymore (as much as we can hope, I think Isaac is still going to play a part in this because of the previews), or b) Isaac is going to die (Hopefully this won’t happen). So I think when the big battle goes down, Scott, Aiden, Ethan (maybe Isaac) will be the front fighters and will give everyone else time to prepare for their part in the battle. On the opposing side, the pawn is Kate. She’s dead so I’m wondering why Stiles/Nogitsune still has her on the board. But remember that Allison has been hallucinating about Kate so we need to keep that in mind because we’ve been able to pretty much understand that the Nogitsune can control multiple people, especially people who’s have doors in their mind are still open; we don’t know if Allison ever closed that door to her mind after her sacrifice so she could very well be who the Nogitsune uses as his final move.
Okay, the rooks are next. The two rooks are Deaton and Jackson. In chess, the rook is a powerful piece even though it can only move in straight lines. Deaton hasn’t made many appearances recently, but in the ones he has made, he’s given crucial advice to Scott and stopped the Nogitsune from further injuring Scott. I think Deaton will be safe in this. Jackson worries me because if he is somehow coming into play, I think he’s going to be manipulated by the Nogitsune. Jackson is strong both as a human and a werewolf, but he’s also currently living in London, so we’ll have to keep an eye on him.
Okay, lastly are the knights, which are Peter, Allison, and Chris Argent. In chess, the knights have weird patterns in which they move, making them difficult to move on the fly and also unpredictable; these pieces need preparation if they’re going to make an impact. On Peter’s side, I think his impact is going to be when (and if) he finds out who is daughter is because I think that would seriously change his outlook on a lot of things (and Peter has always been unpredictable; we all thought he was dead for good and then BOOM he’s back. Not that I’m complaining). For Allison and Chris, they’re not like most Hunters. They actually collaborate with the things they were supposed to hunt, making them unpredictable and unique, just like Knights. I’m wondering that, since they’re white pieces, if the Nogitsune is somehow planning to use them against everyone else.
Like I said, I don’t know anything about chess, but after looking up the meaning of the pieces and looking at who’s put on who, and knowing Jeff Davis, each person is put on a specific piece for a reason.
Reblog and let us know your thoughts! :)
My only problem with the board is that Stiles himself isn’t on it. He’s crazy smart and continues to saves people, why was he not on the chessboard?
What do you mean the doors stuck, try jiggling the handle.
what I love so much about this scene is how they clearly had a PLAN for this
they’ve done this shit before
The Street: A Novelby Ann Petry
THE STREET tells the poignant, often heartbreaking story of Lutie Johnson, a young black woman, and her spirited struggle to raise her son amid the violence, poverty, and racial dissonance of Harlem in the late 1940s. Originally published in 1946 and hailed by critics as a masterwork, The Street was Ann Petry’s first novel, a beloved bestseller with more than a million copies in print. Its haunting tale still resonates today. [book link]
This book is amazing and I recommend it on the final day of Black History month because it has this incredible impact on the reader.
you missed one
