    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

    And, as the weeks turned into months, Margaret’s suspicions seemed to come true. Standing in her kitchen, washing the dishes Mike had left out before he went to work, Margaret watched as Beth came home drunk day after day. She watched as Beth failed to bring out the trash, and as her front garden turned into some sort of suburban nightmare. She watched as Beltik came back, only for Beth to not open the door.

    It was a tragedy, really, only Margaret felt vindicated.

    Yes, maybe she hadn’t been allowed to go to college, and maybe Jean kept her awake even if she wanted nothing more than to drink and sleep, but at least Beth hadn’t gotten her dream life either.

    OR: Margaret watches Beth through her kitchen window.
