    Summary

    my playlist for my beth x benny fanfic
    April 1958: Benny Watts- an ambitious chessplayer and now the youngest US Champion ever- is now waiting to come back home, after a humiliating defeat on his first participation at the Interzonal Tournament. At the thought of Vasilj Borgov's eyes, a sensation of impotence pervaded him and for the first time, Benny felted himself incapable. But he promised to himself that he will get his revenge: that he would never feel that type of impotence ever again. He will beat Borgov - and the USSR's Federation, in the same way, he did with him.
    He will tear down that wall.
    April 1968: Beth Harmon is now returning home triumphant and with the brand new title of Grand Master after her glorious winning in Moscow.
    The next move is winning the World Championships' qualifications; but before, she needs to play a match with someone that she's still too afraid to challenge: herself and her past.
    Two different people, with a different past but with the same goals and fears - two sides of the same medal.

She was made from the constellations that mapped the night sky. To Benny Watts, he knows there's more to the pale faced girl he sees performing every night. He knows she aches to return home, but where is her home?

    Summary

    Beth thinking about Motherhood. I wanted to write something for Mother's Day that wasn't all fluff--this is only half fluff. I came across one of my favorite quotes from when I was 19 (the last one in the story) and I wondered what Beth would make of it. This is the result.
