Anonymous asked: who do you think resembles the queen on the chessboard? was there a name put to it? i don't think so. do you even think this would be important? why wasn't malia on the board at all? and who is playing the game? is it nogitsune (or whatever it really is) against stiles?
don’t you think it’s odd so much of the imagery this season has been around Go and they’re using a chess board?
Go and chess are completely different, although both are strategy, and go players look down on chess players and vice versa.
We know that the queen was unlabelled but Lydia wasn’t on the board, I don’t know if Malia was on it or not, but it makes sense for it to be one of them, but at the same time did we see the whole board and pieces did actually move from one shot to the next.
I don’t know what is important there, but something is and every meta bone in my body is screaming red herring, that it’s something to distract, to mislead.
At the moment I’m just going - okay this is here, and that is there in case it becomes important later, but at the moment it has no correlary, it doesn’t fit in.
I think that Chess and Go represent two different thing: Go illustrates the internal struggle Stiles vs Nogitsune, Chess the external or “real” fight that’s going on.
And I lthink these two images correlate in a way.
From what I know about Go, it is not about destroying the opponent but about controlling a bigger area on the board. So the Go imagery is about whether Stiles or the Nogitsune is in control over Stiles body.
The object of chess on the other hand is capturing the king and in the mean time the other pieces. You remove them from the board, you destroy or kill them, so to say. So chess represents the action in the “real world”, it’s about the external effects of the internal struggle.
King on the board…
So Derek is the King on Stiles’ chess board… The name Derek
Now I’m not sure if it means anything at all. But we know that the meanings behind names means something to Jeff… so does that have to do with why Derek is the king on the board? Who knows. But it’s an interesting coincidence… don’t you think?
