    Summary

    The Queens Circus was known throughout Europe and America for one performer, and one performer alone. Beth Harmon. The acrobat was said to sail through the air as if she was floating. 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

    Post-finale, obviously. Just a short little drabble about events, like chess in the park, another phone call between B2, et cetera. (Can be read as romantic or not, really, so I tagged both.) Borgov's barely present, but I tagged him anyhow.

    Rated G, but there's a few instances of swearing and, obviously, canon-typical references to drug and alcohol use/abuse.

    Summary

    Beth stays in Russia after her win over Borgov at the World Championships. She takes an introspective look back at her past few weeks, the relationships she's made (and damaged) along the way. She decides she needs to work things out with Benny, and there's no better place to think that through than in Moscow, away from the public eye.

    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.
