“It’s the oldest story in the world. One day you’re seventeen and planning for someday. And then quietly and without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And that someday is yesterday. And this is your life.”
i swear i was thinking about a real post but then i thought about Blue and Ronan and Henry playing chess like it’s heckin Calvinball just to irritate Gansey??
Henry’s flipped a rook upside-down and is calling it the stomper and says it can mash any piece that gets within a one-square radius, and he put a tinfoil crown on the king and is saying he has two queens. Blue’s fleshed out her pawns with pieces from a game of Sorry, has attached a bishop to a knight with a rubber band to make a Templar, and has declared the dog from Monopoly to be the most powerful piece on the board. Both of them are blatantly cheating but it’s irrelevant anyways because Ronan keeps encouraging Chainsaw to steal pieces, and then he takes whatever she brings him and makes random attacks against them both. They’ve already expanded to two chess boards and might need a third. (Gansey’s not actually irritated, just extremely perplexed about the point of the game)
