    Summary

    The teachers at Methuen had been rather vague in their lessons on human anatomy but Beth had accumulated a fairly big collection of Cosmopolitan and Vogue issues that taught her a thing or two about her own body. The first signs of a pregnancy were among those things.

    It would make sense, some part of her mind whispered. She and Benny had played the Las Vegas Open two months ago, and the city always made them a bit crazy.

    OR: Four months, three week, and two days before the World Chess Championship in 1972 Beth realizes that she might be pregnant.

    Summary

    “Jonny Hale.”

    He was reaching across the chessboard to shake her hand, but Beth froze. She knew that voice, it had echoed through her head with the same intensity as Benny’s laugh for the last few minutes. So, this was the face of the asshole who thought he could insult her; who laughed about her behind her back; who turned her friends against her.

    “Beth Harmon. It’s a pleasure.”

    OR: During the French Open in Marseilles Beth unfortunately meets a chess player, who is more than just a sore loser - he is a dangerous asshole as well.

    Summary

    And maybe family isn’t forever either, perhaps you can’t put a temporal dimension to it, can’t measure it by a chess clock or even a calendar year. But maybe not being alone isn’t a permanent state either. Perhaps there are people that come into your life when you need it, and are there when you need it.

    Summary

    Post-finale, obviously. Just a short little drabble about events, like chess in the park, another phone call between B2, et cetera. (Can be read as romantic or not, really, so I tagged both.) Borgov's barely present, but I tagged him anyhow.

    Rated G, but there's a few instances of swearing and, obviously, canon-typical references to drug and alcohol use/abuse.

    Summary

    It was becoming a problem, the way Beth squirmed in her seat when they played. He didn’t need to look at Beth to know that she was staring at him with that look, the one she sometimes tried to hide and sometimes just... didn’t. Angry. Hungry. Frustrated.

    Beth is horny and Benny tells her to take care of it herself.
