    Summary

    There was a discussion of whether or not Beth would have cuts or scars from when the jar of green pills broke at Methuen. This tiny moment is my take on it.

    This story is also an exercise in projective fiction, like a fanfic Rorschach test. It isn't tagged with any specific pairing because I wanted readers to be able to see how the scene works for their favorite ship. It works a bit better for some characters than others and it could even be an OC. And I do think Beth is bi so she might have a female lover and it would still work. Feel free to change details or pronouns in your imagination and see what works best for you.

    Summary

    This story came from me asking: “What if Alice’s brand of 'crazy' from the Queen’s Gambit series was really her having psychic abilities she wasn’t able to handle? And what if Beth’s fears about going crazy like her mother are because she has the same latent psychic abilities? And then what happens if Beth visits the haunted Overlook Hotel from The Shining?” There was so much potential for psychological horror I had to write it! It very much started out as crack!fic taken seriously but then it took on a life (afterlife?) of its own. So here is Beth being haunted by her own personal ghosts as well as those that reside at the Overlook Hotel.

    If you aren't a horror fan, this is mostly psychological horror--lots of creepy atmosphere and ghosts trying to get into Beth's head. There are some disturbing images but not a huge amount of blood or violence. I hope that helps you determine if this exceeds your personal horror tolerance. I rated the story Teen. If it were a movie it would be closer to PG-13 than R I think. It's not scarier than The Shining if that helps.

    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

    A poem Beth might have written if she were the type to write poetry. It's about feelings and using alcohol to avoid feeling them. It was inspired by Beth but probably applies to a lot of people since there isn't a lot of detail.

    There is art but I haven't found a way to get it to post on this site. Eventually, I hope to get that technological glitch worked out and get the art posted as well. In the meantime, just imagine a watercolor painting of red wine spilling out of a green bottle.

    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
