    Killian vs River, Take 2

    Watching through tear stained eyes as Killian's Queen took his King, River had lost the match. Game over, Killian Wins!
  3. Killian Dracel

    Killian vs River, Take 2

    The game wore on, and Killian squinted at the board as he saw an opening and just had to take it. He maneuvered his queen into position to overtake the King with his bishop right there to back her Majesty up. "Checkmate," he said, and flicked River's King over. He rose from his chair, packed away the board with the flick of his wand and leaned heavily on the table, as if to get in River's teary face. "It shouldn't be your secret," Killian hissed at him. "Everyone here as the right to know when someone has been turned into a monster." He narrowed his eyes at River, shaking his head. "You just better hope that you never miss one of your Wolfsbane potions, Mutt, because I promise you, even the threat of the smallest Azkaban cell for life will not be enough to deter me from offing you. Understand?"
  4. River Wolfe

    Killian vs River, Take 2

    River sank lower in his chair as once again, Killian managed to put his pieces into check. Looking to Killian and his 'What of it' face, River sat up straighter than usual as Killian's insult felt as if it re-opened a sealed wound. "Just because I'm a Ravenclaw doesn't mean I can't have other smarts about me." River snarled. Then, it was the moment River had dreaded; he didn't need to tell Killian that he was a werewolf because Killian had already known. "Because it's my secret." River spoke, moving his King out of check and confirming what the other had previously known. "I don't have to tell anyone if I don't want to, and the few that do know, one isn't even at the school anymore." The prefect spoke through fresh tears. Move #15
  5. Killian Dracel

    Killian vs River, Take 2

    "YEAH I TOOK YOUR BISHOP!" Killian shouted back, as his King destroyed the bishop that thought it could go toe-to-toe with his royal epicness. He made a face at River that said, 'What of it?' He looked at River and shook his head. "I don't know what you were thinking sending your Bishop into that situation all alone. I thought you were a Ravenclaw. "You know," he added conversationally, "I'm amazed that even you have been able to keep your secret this long," he muttered. "I suppose that showed just how stupid the rest of the castle is."

  6. River Wolfe

    Killian vs River, Take 2

    River's brain had to scramble as soon as Killian had put him in check if there was one thing the prefect did not know, it was how to play chess correctly, and with that, River used his brain. Within five moves of Killian calling check, the Ravenclaw put on his best 'I can look smug to' face and called out "Check" Moving his Bishop to a spot to take Killian's King. Then he froze with a severe expression stuck onto his face, did Killian know? Should River tell him? Luckily the prefect could play off the situation as Killian claimed his piece. "YOU TOOK MY BISHOP!" Move #10
  7. Killian Dracel

    Killian vs River, Take 2

    "Check," Killian said as his Knight valiantly lept into battle with a pawn and sliced it down. Killian smiled and picked up the broken pieces of River's little black pawn and dropped them off to the side unapologetic. "First blood goes to me," he noted, before picking up on what River said. "Wait, what news?" he asked, raising an eyebrow at River. "Like how you look ghastly sick in classes all the time?" Oh, yes, Killian's smile turned into a smirk. to post #10
  8. River Wolfe

    Killian vs River, Take 2

    Chess, a game that was not River's friend, but, it was something that he should be playing because sharpening one's mind was something that everyone should at least try to do. "No~ I haven't seen him," The prefect sang-sighed to the other, before moving almost every chess piece that he controlled before putting them back to their original location. "I think his dad took him out of school again," He spoke, "Or he didn't take the news well..." River tried to speak low. Move #5
  9. Killian Dracel

    Killian vs River, Take 2

    The game was starting out as slowly as one might imagine, but Killian was attempting to keep his mind sharp and be able to read people and their strategies. This was one game his mother wasn't going to let him get away with not playing. Idly, Killian drummed his fingers on the table in the Great Hall. "No Everly?" he inquired, glancing around, raising his eyebrows. to post #5
  10. River Wolfe

    Killian vs River, Take 2

    A lot was happening with the Ravenclaw; the biggest was that he was moving out of his aunt's house and in with his pen-pal who, like him, was also a werewolf. Still, maybe he should at least enjoy the last few days he had at Hogwarts and not mope, but how was he to do that? Enter: Killian Dracel. "Oh!" River spoke coming out of his daze-like appearance hearing Killian call out his unofficial nickname. "Yeah, sure, I get black."
  11. The end of the year meant that he had some free time on his hands, which meant he could actually get around to that club he should have paid more attention to. Arriving in the Great Hall, he spotted a few people with their chessboards out at the Slytherin table, and he smiled approvingly. And there was River, sitting all alone. "Murky, fancy a game?" Killian asked, sitting down and pulling out his special Slytherin board.

    The Basics

    NOTATIONS tbe
  16. Jaxon Sinclair

    Mati vs. Jaxon

    Jack watched one of his pieces smash through one of Mati's not long into the game. At least there was that. His game with Killian had dragged on quite awhile before he'd managed to take a piece at all. Tapping his fingers against the table, he surveyed the board from behind his glasses. How had he ended up in chess club again? Oh, right. Alister. That was how. He'd spent far too long trying to outplay his cousin, which really wasn't fair, all things considered. Alister could see the future. That seemed like a vast advantage over the rest of the world. Advantage enough that he'd given up sports at Hogwarts, at least, but somehow still found it in his heart to butcher Jack at chess every chance that he got. "Charms," he mused out loud. "Very high level charms, I imagine. Or runes, maybe. Your move."
  17. Mati Kildare

    Mati vs. Jaxon

    The Hufflepuff boy was practically buzzing with happiness as the game got underway. He stayed mostly quiet, though, content with the silent exchange happening on the board for a little while. There was little violence, only the shattered remains of one of his pawns had been moved off into the graveyard to heal. As he started to gain a strategy, Mati attempted to start up some small talk, "any idea how they make these boards magical? I was talking with @Radueriel Benson last year and I thought it would be cool to carve and magick a magical creatures chessboard. Puffskein pawns, dragon knights, stuff like that." He looked up from the board to study his opponents expression, hand blindly reaching for a breakfast sausage from a nearby platter.
  18. Jaxon Sinclair

    Mati vs. Jaxon

    Jack had spent an obscene amount of time at the Hufflepuff table the year before, crashing his sister's relationship with Nox Bordelon, but since then, he'd spent a majority of his mornings with the Ravenclaws, only occasionally interloping with the Hufflepuffs when @Adrina Althaus-Valerio said hello to him in the morning. It wasn't Adrina that morning, however, but Mati Kildare, a boy he'd only ever really interacted with in class. Still, they were in a club together and so it seemed impolite to say no. That, combined with the challenge that followed...well, Jack had never been one to walk away from a thrown gauntlet, so to speak. Shrugging his bag from his shoulder, the Slytherin sat down. "I think I can give you a difficult game, at the very least."
  19. "Ohayo! Sinclair!" Mati waved over-enthusiastically to @Jaxon Sinclair as he passed near the breakfast-laden Hufflepuff table. Mati had already been awake for a couple of hours and was quite excited to use the chessboard his aunt had sent him last year. It seems that there was enough interest in the game to start a club, and clubs meant friends. He slid a plate of hashbrowns and platter of scrambled eggs aside to make space before plopping down the wizarding chess set onto the table. "Care for a game? I've only really played @Radueriel Benson, think you can beat me?" He grinned a playful challenge, motioning to the seat across from him
  20. River Wolfe

    Killian vs River

    Move #10 A small smile came across River's face, he had never heard Killian give a complement before, more or less to him. A small boost in confidence over came River, of course for not too long a another one of his chess pieces had been sacrificed for the name of the game. Then something weird happened. Was Killian asking River how he was feeling? Outrage was the only thing the fourth year could as the other should already know why River was ' not as annoying as you were last year' "You should know why," River huffed, "I more or less asked the whole year to attend my parents funeral." A somber feeling now arose in River, it upset him that he had sent out more than a hundred cards with information, and only a hand full of their year even showed up. "Your go."
  21. Killian Dracel

    Example Match: Jaxon vs Killian

    "Yeah, well, you're related, so..." That clearly explained it. Killian wished he had grown up with other family that would have his back no matter what. "Honestly, I just don't care anymore? She was a pain in my arse in the beginning--still sort of is--but I'm not interested in starting something for the sake of starting something, y'know?" He watched his pieces, and there was that familiar sinking feeling in the pit of his stomach as he realized... "I'm so screwed." Damn, this board sucked. "Yeah, well, chess isn't for everyone," he murmured. And then he met Jaxon's gaze. "That does sound like it would suck, and I wouldn't even entertain the match-up," Killian laughed, and watched as his King was surrounded by Jaxon's pieces. "Bullocks. That's checkmate." Frowning, he watched as the little King dropped his sword in surrender. "Well, Jack--d'you mind if I call you Jack?--that was a really good game. Clearly, I need to practice more." He held out his fist for a solidarity bump. "Next week, we should play again."
  22. Jaxon Sinclair

    Example Match: Jaxon vs Killian

    "Not to me, she doesn't." He lifted his shoulders. There was a silent truce between Jack and Maggie. They may have bickered and occasionally poked fun at each other, but they were never intentionally malicious with each other. They had a united front. They had to. With a younger sibling like Adam Sinclair, a united front was a necessary survival strategy. Flinching, Jack watched one of his own knights slaughtered and dragged away. Casually, he ordered another piece forward. "Maggie doesn't have the patience for chess," he admitted, though he didn't add that he also doubted she had the brains for it. Killian Dracel didn't need more fuel to use in his little campaign against his sister. "I play my cousin. Ever played someone that can see the future?" He raised an eyebrow. "Because it sucks, man."
  23. Killian Dracel

    Example Match: Jaxon vs Killian

    "Well, this is embarrassing," Killian said as he observed the board. Clearly this lad had played a game or two in his day, and though Killian enjoyed it, he certainly didn't realize he was this bad. Still, even though it was losing, it was rather entertaining to watch the pieces fight. He just never expected Jaxon to have taken so many of his prominent pieces and he hadn't taken a single one. "Yeah, well," he said, absently, "she's in my year, so I can say it, too. Besides, she gives as good as she gets, wouldn't you say?" Maggie Sinclair... how did she come to be the topic of their conversation? Sighing, he looked at the board. "What the hell, mate? Are you a Chess prodigy and just didn't tell me? Do you... play your sister or something? I imagine she'd play chess. She seems to have a calculating mind."
  24. Jaxon Sinclair

    Example Match: Jaxon vs Killian

    Jack would not have put it past someone as seemingly high-strung as that Hufflepuff girl to have a whipping boy. Then again...there were other circumstances to consider. "I doubt it," he eventually said, watching his bishop smash through Killian's knight, dragging the figure off of the horse and throwing it sideways from the board in a heap of rubble. Oh, how satisfying it was to destroy things. "I mean, she ended up with that attitude for a reason, yeah? If I behaved like that, my mother would have dragged me away by the ear. Hers obviously didn't. No discipline? No whipping boy." He lifted his shoulders in a shrug. "She probably belongs in a cage with the other base primates, anyway. Flinging literal sh...never mind." The appearance of their staff sponsor silenced him quickly. Jack's face lifted, surprise in his features, and he flashed a brittle grin. "Hey, I can say that because she's my sister. I mean, you're right, but still..."
