chess*

“I am still a victim of chess. It has all the beauty of art — and much more. It cannot be commercialized. Chess is much purer than art in its social position.” - Marcel Duchamp        

My pipe and chess, they work well together.     

My grandfather died exactly two years ago and my voicemail is still full of his messages telling me ‘love you’ or the typical 'chess pun of the day’; some of the are just reminders to make me eat.

He was truly the most decent, intelligent, kind man I have ever known. He is sorely missed.

For @avenger-for-ever, who requested a drunk, touchy-feely Erik…

Erik has never been much of a drinker.

Most times, alcohol is a means to an end- a form of social lubricant, and a way for him to fit in and normalise when he is on a hunt. Bars are some of the most frequently visited establishments in the world, and apparently even Nazis like a drink or two. It’s easy for Erik to blend in when he is sat at a table with a drink in his hand, and most times Erik’s target doesn’t even know he’s a threat until they hit the floor.

When Erik joins up with Charles and the CIA he assumes his drinking days are done. After all, he is only remaining with Charles for as long as it takes to catch up with Shaw, so there is really no need to assimilate.

It’s curious then that, mere days after first meeting Charles, Erik finds himself sat across from Charles at a chess table with a tumbler of whiskey in his hand.

But it doesn’t mean anything. Probably.

the first floor! it consists of

  • a main hall, for chilling, making speeches, or getting a snack
  • a dining hall, for eating meals and getting a quick drink
  • the kitchen, where food is prepared
  • a lounge room, where people can watch tv, play video games, read, or give presentations
  • a study room, mainly for those studying technology or science and medicine. it has computers, a science research machine thing, a chess table, and other types of activities

phanisqueer  asked:

Hey there!! So I've been hearing all of the Nygmobblepot fandom talking about Ed hallucinating Ozzie, and that's GREAT but where did it come from? did the Gotham writers post something or?? Thanks from someone who loves your blog ✌🏻️

There was a spoiler image released of Hallucination Oswald seemingly working with Edward while he’s about to bomb a chess tournament. 

Hope this helped!

to spite your own rules: juno steel/peter nureyev. private detective antics of every sort. 

“Alright,” Juno says sharply. He turns on Peter, who is studying a bookshelf, the very picture of innocence. He’s got an expression on his face that is probably supposed to be intellectually contemplative. “What’s your game?”

“Parcheesi,” Peter says brightly. “Sometimes chess. Poker, when I’m in the mood.”

can’t play a player juno…. but props for trying

Charles Bargue - The chess game by Irina

Charles Bargue (c. 1826/1827 – April 6, 1883) was a French painter and lithographer who devised a drawing course. He is mostly remembered for his Cours de dessin, one of the most influential classical drawing courses conceived in collaboration with Jean-Léon Gérôme.
