2 Works in Beth Harmon/D. L. Townes/Benny Watts
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.

Beth looked at Benny and said, “You don’t mind, do you? One time deal between us.”
