    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

    Townes gets an offer to write up a gay friendly (and fae friendly) vacation spot for a magazine and he and Roger go off on a beach vacation to celebrate their anniversary. Magical things happen because it is a fantasy AU with selkies (seal shapeshifters). It's a fanfic version of a sexy summer beach read. Mostly fluff, minimal angst.

    "When I read your fic it makes me think of this, like, fuzzy photograph from the '60s of a sunny beach. Just nostalgia for a time I've never even existed in." --Reader Comment

    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

    The next morning, she wakes with sunlight hitting her face, filling her with a warmth that Moscow had not provided before. Instead of waking up in a giant, solitary hotel bed, she listens to the sound of Benny's breathing keeping her company. His arm is wrapped around her waist. His fingertips slightly brush her side. His other arm is nestled between his neck and the pillow. His hair looks soft, gently draped over his eyes.

    Beth brushes it aside with one hand. “I love you” she whispers.

    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.
