    Summary

    In Aciman's book, Oliver visits Elio at Christmas and announces his engagement. He also treats Elio like a stranger, refusing to touch him or even be friendly. Aciman's Elio allegedly forgives Oliver, but what if he hadn't?
    Fast forward two years: Elio is in London studying Composition and Oliver is married (no kids) and suddenly appears out of nowhere. Elio is not happy about it, which is the understatement of the century.

    This is an AU of sorts to my previous series. You don't need to have read it to enjoy this story, but some references will be lost.
    The characters I created are present here too (Jack, Pierre, etc).

    This London will be grittier and less soft-lensed, because Elio is virtually penniless and determined to refuse financial help from his parents.

    I promise a happy ending, but the course of true love will not run smooth...

    Summary

    Oliver and Elio, between chapter 2 and the epilogue of Daring to Desire You.
    Just a few snapshots of their life together.
    I have now seen the film, so there will be more references to it than in my previous work.

    Summary

    I adored this book, but the ending was very hard to digest. I have decided to write my own (happy) ending, because a love like Elio’s and Oliver’s deserves a happy ending with a vengeance.
    I have added more time-related references, but kept political ones to an absolute minimum. It’s more about music, food and the feel of the era.
    You will see that at some point the characters go to San Francisco. That part is only referred to, because I have never been there so I didn’t want to write rubbish. I also decided that Vimini should live, because I love her :)
    The story is narrated, like the novel, from Elio’s POV.
    There is quite a lot of explicit sex, but it’s loving and always consensual. If you do not enjoy M/M sex, please do not read the story (or the original book).

    Aciman is a genius and I am not, so please forgive my inadequacy. It is all intended as homage to a book I loved rather than an attempt to improve on it.

    Last but not least: I have mixed the book’s and film’s references, but I have only seen the trailer as the film is not out yet. If you have seen it, please forgive the errors. I wanted to publish my story before I could be influenced by Guadagnino’s masterpiece.
    Enjoy!
