└Genderswap: Amber Heard as Deanna Winchester and Katie McGrath as Castiel
The object of the game is to checkmate the opponent’s King by placing it under threat of capture which cannot be avoided.
#NOTHING MAKES ME HAPPIER THAN PEOPLE GETTING CHESS METAPHORS RIGHT #the pawn; least powerful piece on the board— but with one wild move and if you get it to the end it can become the most powerful #the bishop; amazing range but can only move on it’s color— a piece that will surprise you #the knight; the irrational piece— hardest to predict #the rook; who guards the king— a long range piece #the king; the ultimate goal— but can’t do the work itself #the queen; the most powerful piece on the board— the only piece that doesn’t emulate it in some way is the knight
(not my tags but they are so great, so I add them)
I will bet anyone $100 that Hiromu Arakawa created the whole series just to make that joke
today i ordered coffee under the name “stannis” and i shit you not the barista called out “i have a regular caramel latte for the one true king of westeros”
#I could picture this playing out like one of those saloon scenes in a western #everyone freezes #and looks at one another #and then fucking dashes to pick up the latte #stannis pushing people over like ‘this latte is mINE BY RIGHTS’ #Robb like ‘can’t everyone just get along?’ #dany screaming ‘I will take what is MINE’ with jorah’s muffled ‘khaaaaaaleesi’ in the background #Doran breaks down the door yelling ‘VENGEANCE’ #meanwhile Rickon casually walks out with the latte cause he thought it was his hot chocolate
