    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

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

    Summary

    1975.

     

     

     

    “Beth’s okay,” Benny says. The statement is almost too simple for the liminal space they occupy at the moment, themselves and not themselves, spending afternoons stripping away the people they are in favour of just becoming two minds, two minds and a board and a world’s wealth of chess knowledge as they strive to push Beth to her sweetest sharpest limits. It’s exhilarating and exhausting and enthralling; some days it’s awful and brutal and gruelling, and other days it’s like watching a universe being born behind Beth’s eyes, both of them half-hysterical and marvelling.

    Summary

    They’re not lovers, but they can mimic it well enough. The band starts up again and Benny places his hands on her waistline, his grasp light, while her arms twist around his shoulders. Internally, Benny laughs at the irony, at the many other times they’ve been in a similar position. But now is not the time or place for that, memories of intertwined bodies and breathy moans and clutching hands meant to stay in the past, something he only allows himself to take out at night when he’s alone, something he really should forget.

    Summary

    "Benny knows what the optics are-- the seasoned professional taking an attractive young ingenue under his wing, ‘teaching’ her everything he knows, it reads like a drugstore paperback. Honestly, he’s not sure who should be more insulted: him, for the implication that he would seduce a eighteen-year-old under the guise of mentoring her, or Beth, for people thinking she could be so gullibly had."
