    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 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

    Beth Harmon has achieved everything she ever wanted, so why wasn't she satisfied? And why couldn't she forget about a certain man in a silly hat.

    If only she could concentrate long enough to defeat her current opponent, she might have time to deal with the whirlwind of emotions wrecking havoc in her brain.

     

    My take on: Beth goes to Benny after her victory over Borgov.

    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 elencate 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.

    Summary

    Upon returning to the States, Beth finds herself seeking out the only person lingering in her mind. Now that she had exorcized Borgov from her nightmares, she could only think of Benny and hope she could repair the damage between them. Beth and Benny are reunited and both begin to realize how lonely life has been without the others. So they embark on a journey up to Georgetown, then down to Lexington and even over to Beth's old orphanage before setting their sights on an international venue where they'll face challenges, new faces, and continue to come to terms with their feelings for one another.

    Summary

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

    A one off idea involving handwriting that spiraled into something far beyond my control. Least I could do is take you guys along for the ride.

    Summary

    She’s like this: gale-force winds through a grassy plane; a shock of ice cold water sprayed through the faucet early in the morning, an entire force of nature onto herself as she whips through his life, taking whatever she wants. She’s ruthless, lawless, relentless; he’s helpless.

    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

    From your bedside table, you read the note one more time, linger horizontally a twinge longer than you expected to, and then walk to start your day. It’s sinking in that the way Jolene looks at you will never be the same. Is the ground supposed to be this unsteady?
