    Summary

    Timmy: are you REALLY texting me to pick a fight
    Armie: there's no one else
    Timmy: to what fight with? doubt it
    Armie: who knows me
    Timmy: I don't know if that’s true anymore.

     

    When they were little kids, they were the kind of inseparable that made most people assume they were brothers or perhaps cousins, the kind that made them Armie and Timmy, a single entity always. A falling out set them on different paths, crossing only in destruction until senior year when a twist of fate pulls them together once more. Having grown, the two must acknowledge the real reason they fell apart all those years ago while wondering if some wounds cut too deep to repair.

    Summary

    The one where Armie is a College football player with a massive ego. He makes a bet that he can sleep with the Dean's son.
    ~~~
    “My friend's brother used to date him for a few months last year,” Greg adds and Armie turns to face him. “Told me the kid wouldn’t even put out.” He’s grinning widely now, clearly thinking he’s picked a prime candidate. “So what do you say, Hammer? $200 bucks if you get him in bed by the end of the school year.” Armie rolls his eyes and crosses his arms.

    “By the end of the school year?” Armie questions, voice dripping with arrogance. “You really under estimate me. I could have him begging for it by the end of this season.” He reaches out to shake Greg’s hand, smirking. He shrugs, “But sure, you’re on."

    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!
