I don't know how it's possible for me to find a sequence of chess moves this amusing.

Alright, so, white is in a bad spot rn, however, black doesn't really have any mates yet. Black can make white dance around, but they can't really mate yet.

Alright, so, white is in a really bad spot rn. The bishop and knight are both protected, and white has very little development.
8. Kg5 is automatic checkmate:

1. e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 Kg3 g6 Kh4 Bh5 Kg5 Ng8#

Therefore, the king can't advance this move, (even though he'd like to), so his best move is to allow the bishop to block:

1. e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 Kg3 g6 Kh4 Bh5 d3

That way, even if 8. ... Ng8+ is played, the king is not mated:

1. e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 Kg3 g6 Kh4 Bh5 d3 Ng8 Bg5

So, 9. Bg5 leads into a split path for black:
Either 9. ... Nf6 OR 9. ... Be7

Regardless of the move, White would always reply with 10. Qd2

For sake of play, I'm gonna assume the more defensive path of 9. ... Nf6

1. e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 Kg3 g6 Kh4 Bh5 d3 Ng8 Bg5 Nf6 Qd2 Be7

reviving this:

So I did look at this position once again for a little bit, and white is in an absolutely fucked position. I honestly feel like white's best play here is attempting a break on H5, by doing 11. Be2.

1. e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 6. Kg3 g6 7. Kh4 Bh5 8. d3 Ng8 9. Bg5 Nf6 10. Qd2 Be7 Be2

After thinking about the line of play that comes from Black ignoring the threat on H5, Black should always take this because if not, Black loses a lot of mobile pieces on their kingside, for example:

e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 6. Kg3 g6 7. Kh4 Bh5 8. d3 Ng8 9. Bg5 Nf6 10. Qd2 Be7 Be2 O-O Bxh5 Nxh5 Bxe7 Qxe7+ Qg5

The above position, (with white's goal in mind), is actually winning for them. Even if the queen trade doesn't happen, white still have a very mobile queen on the kingside and can quickly mobilize their king to roughly get to the other side and win. So, Black will take that bishop.

1. e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 6. Kg3 g6 7. Kh4 Bh5 8. d3 Ng8 9. Bg5 Nf6 10. Qd2 Be7 Be2 Bxe2

Here's where the fun part of this game now begins. White has two options here:
Qxe2 or Nxe2.

Moving the queen makes the bishop, (and by extension king), under-defended, and moving the knight puts it at a disadvantageous position. In this position, I personally believe that the knight is better off moving, so we'll roll with that.

1. e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 6. Kg3 g6 7. Kh4 Bh5 8. d3 Ng8 9. Bg5 Nf6 10. Qd2 Be7 11. Be2 Bxe2 Nxe2

Obviously, the next immediate threat from white is Bh6 to Bg7, so black would want to take care of that with something like O-O, or, pin the bishop to the king, with Nfd7, which we'll actually roll with too.

1. e4 e5 2. Ke2 Nf6 3. Qe1 d5 4. Ke3 d4 5. Kf3 Bg4 6. Kg3 g6 7. Kh4 Bh5 8. d3 Ng8 9. Bg5 Nf6 10. Qd2 Be7 11. Be2 Bxe2 Nxe2 Nfd7
