    Summary

    When her mother deliberately crashes their car, it ends Beth’s life as she knows it and strands her at Methuen Home. She has yet to learn of the chain of events this will set in motion. The one that will start with her introduction to the world of chess, give her a new mother, and take her far beyond the borders of Lexington.

    As she works her way towards the very centre of that world, she meets numerous other people along the way. But among weak opponents, friendships, rivalries, and hardships there is one person who sticks out from among them all. Vasily Borgov, the intimidating World Champion from the Soviet Union with a face that is much harder to read than the sixty-four squares he rules over, catches her eyes from the start and she finds it impossible to look away.

    Or, we follow Beth through canon and into the years beyond as she struggles with finding her place in the world, creating bonds with others, and substance abuse, but also finds the good things in life, such as success, friendship, and love.

    Summary

    This is a list of the many characters (canon and not) that are presented in CLM, with their characteristics and data. I decided to make it for explaining and list the various changes that I made during the course of the fic, being this a story with a lot of chapters and events.
    The descriptions will be uploaded and edited every time a new CLM chapter will be uploaded, and I will report what are spoilers from what is not.
    Like a wiki.

    This story will be even used by me to post some of my illustrations about my story🤗🤗

    Summary


    "No..."[..] she started [..]
    "[..]he's the only one that can help you (...) he's the right person. " [..]
    Beth knew that Harry was right, as most of the time. [..]
    She needed to call him; she needed to call Benny.

     

    Beth and Benny, two different faces of the same coin: two different people with their own unresolved problems, and issues.
    The first, after her victory in Moscow, have to face the consequence of her past choices, and with the pressure of the fame; while some shadows from her mother's past are returning to discombobulate her life even more.
    The second, instead, have to deal with the fact that he's not anymore the Great Champion that he was and with a wound that has been tormenting him for the last ten years.
    Two entities who seem unable to communicate with each other, yet one is indispensable to the other.
    Will these two outstanding chess players finally being able to leave the past aside and work together in view of the World Championship qualifiers?

    Summary

    “Night shifts require stamina, flexibility, commitment and the ability to pace yourself just right,” Hilton tells Beth.  He frowns.  “It’s sexier when Benny does the spiel.”

    “Is it,” Cleo says drily.

    Summary

    “You know what? Someday you might thank me for this,” Hilton calls as he leaves.

    The Boy-With-Really-Fine-Hair takes the seat next to her, where he deliberately keeps his eyes off any one person, trained instead on the chessboard, as if he can’t help himself. He enunciates carefully at his friend’s back, “Go to hell.”

    “Or not,” mutters Hilton, sauntering away with a cheerful spring in his step.

    Beth Harmon and Benny Watts have an instant connection over chess, along with spades of hatred and attraction. From their first meeting they can’t stop fighting, and it’s all very confusing.

    The "enemies with benefits" section of the Enemies-With-Benefits-to-Chess-Club-Co-Captains-to-Lovers High School Musical AU.

    Summary

    Beth's world is widening whilst Benny's seems to shrink, but what's the world to the universe within a letter?

    Summary

    1975.

     

     

     

    “Beth’s okay,” Benny says. The statement is almost too simple for the liminal space they occupy at the moment, themselves and not themselves, spending afternoons stripping away the people they are in favour of just becoming two minds, two minds and a board and a world’s wealth of chess knowledge as they strive to push Beth to her sweetest sharpest limits. It’s exhilarating and exhausting and enthralling; some days it’s awful and brutal and gruelling, and other days it’s like watching a universe being born behind Beth’s eyes, both of them half-hysterical and marvelling.

    Summary

    They’re not lovers, but they can mimic it well enough. The band starts up again and Benny places his hands on her waistline, his grasp light, while her arms twist around his shoulders. Internally, Benny laughs at the irony, at the many other times they’ve been in a similar position. But now is not the time or place for that, memories of intertwined bodies and breathy moans and clutching hands meant to stay in the past, something he only allows himself to take out at night when he’s alone, something he really should forget.
