    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

    Pure fluff. In this case, dandelion fluff. This is a what-if-they-met-as-kids story. I can't tell if it is canon-compliant or slightly AU.

    Summary

    Beth and Townes talking about sexual orientation. The title is because often people assume whatever a person's current relationship is represents their sexual orientation. But sometimes the reality is a little more complicated than that.

    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

    The Queens Circus was known throughout Europe and America for one performer, and one performer alone. Beth Harmon. The acrobat was said to sail through the air as if she was floating. She was made from the constellations that mapped the night sky. To Benny Watts, he knows there's more to the pale faced girl he sees performing every night. He knows she aches to return home, but where is her home?

    Summary

    Beth thinking about Motherhood. I wanted to write something for Mother's Day that wasn't all fluff--this is only half fluff. I came across one of my favorite quotes from when I was 19 (the last one in the story) and I wondered what Beth would make of it. This is the result.
