    Summary

    I can't describe how happy I'm to be able to publish this video.
    This is my first edit in almost two years and I'm so happy to have been able to return to doing it.
    I dreamed to make an edit of these two since the end of 2020 - as most of the people as done -but I never had the chance, so I'm quite sad to have come so late: still, I had written, for now, a 13 chapter long fanfic named Cowboy Like Me on AO3 about this couple, so if you're a fan like me of B2, I hope you'll check it out✨

    Summary

    I sat down to write a Choose Your Own Adventure and I got a journal entry. This is Beth writing in her journal and reflecting on what might or might not have happened between her and Cleo.

    "When I was a little girl Mama used to sew my clothes and she’d have all these cut out pieces and I couldn’t tell what they would look like when she put them together. It’s a little like that. I have these little fragments and flashes from that night and I don’t know how they fit together."

    Summary

    For a moment they’re both silent—unsure of themselves outside the confines of chess and Beth’s kitchen—but he’s older, and more secure, and when he speaks Beth could almost imagine that he’s verging on a smile.

    She doesn’t look up to verify that.

    A Bethov fic, in which time passes and no-one moves on for good.

    Summary

    “José Capablanca was a prodigy and lived his life handed to him on a silver platter, eschewed books and formal study for food and women and booze. They say the coroner put his ego as the cause of death. Alekhine played obsessively for years and years, became World Champion and then the alcoholic that showed up to every game drunk. His dead body was found hunched over a chess board. At least Beth isn’t like them.”

    “Harry?”

    “Yeah?”

    “Shut up.”

    Summary

    He’s not there to greet her when she arrives, but from his dormitory window he can see her pull up in her taxi, a solitary figure with a swaying strut in kitten heels, head fixed forward like the bow of a ship, maroon coat fluttering like a battle flag. If she doesn’t notice the students on their bikes or at a picnic, they won’t notice her, but he’s drawn to her like a lodestone.

    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.
