//Queen-Removed

A crimson light in the dark approaches the Fallen Queen. An offer accepted, the Fallen Queen follows the Black Bishop off the board.

The Grey Rook has gone silent, the Librarian's grief fuels her resolve.

The Spectator has seen the Black King, in town on other business. Sometimes, she would catch a hint of mist pouring from one side of his face.

The clock ticks, mist rolls in. Square by square, the board becomes harder to see.

  1. I just have to say Thage, thank you for your posts. Knowledge is power and your insights and memories are amazing.

  2. ...The board becoming harder to see...

    Well, well, well. Will we be fighting blind? Since we all have other senses that are still perfectly usable.

  3. What will be, will be. For all I know, it means I'll just have to scoot the stands closer.

  4. We have heard that those who are blind have their other senses sharpened! Indeed, sight hasn't facilitated a victory very well, has it? Even the Freak Itself has no eyes!

  5. An oddly fatalistic attitude. This one does not remember a time when you would admit so easily to defeat.

  6. Dayum shame about Redlight, him not being dead and all. But doesn't he work for Big S? Why would he take away one of his best bud's most powerful pieces?

  8. ...Hmmm... most interesting.

    @ De Bliss good question. there's a lot we still don't know about Redlight, although I think Robert proved that he's working for SM. I don't know. maybe the Fallen Queen broke free of him somehow?

  9. TSMSDB: Why would the Black King care about a few pawns?

    Thage, as usual, thank you for your insight. Though I will not miss the Fallen Queen, at least she's not axe-crazy anymore.

  10. @Jean I dunno, I thought the whole Queen and Rook and Bishop and Knight monikers goin' on here denoted power rankings.

    Like some upper-crust version of Dragon Ball Z, heh. But Goku's still training in Heaven with Kami and Mr. Popo.

  11. J.R.: This is not defeatism, at all. Simply a chronicling of events as they are.

    My favorite rhyming DJ: By no means. It is simply a means to denote the more prominent or leadership-oriented.

  12. So we have knights and bishops and rooks and even pawns on our side...

    But what really scares me is who the hell are Slendy's knights and bishops?

  13. There is but one Bishop on the Black King's side, the crimson light in the darkness.

    His Rooks and Knights are the elite, those like the Grey Rook.

  14. How are you, Thage? Are you taking care of yourself?

  15. Of course. I've been looking into a few journals that might detail the Black King's presence among the ancient Norse.

  16. The Black Bishop takes the Grey Rook, hehehehehe.

  17. I'm not sure why you're laughing. If you are who you claim to be, you know full well my position in the matter. If the Grey Rook has been taken, so be it.

    Just remember, even a Bishop can be overwhelmed when surrounded on all sides by pawns and knights.

  18. He's bothering you, Thage? I'm sorry.

    Um, I'm wondering if you're still okay with me coming and stay for a day or two. Right now I really need somewhere to go.

  19. Feel free to email me and we can finalize plans for your stay.

  20. The Grey Rook has been demoted to White Knight. Or is that a promotion?

    Also, I'm holding you to that spagbol offer.

  21. I believe you've made White Rook, my friend. And, I'd be glad to fix you and Ava a meal sometime, provided you're willing to spend a night putting up with my utter lack of social graces.
