    Summary

    When Nie Mingjue spots the freshly bloodied handkerchief Jin Guangyao accidentally drops, his first sickening conclusion is that he's just caught him in the middle of some nefarious deed--but Nie Mingjue investigates further, and instead uncovers a series of injuries across Jin Guangyao's body that tell a much more heart-wrenching tale than the one Nie Mingjue first suspected.

    Can Nie Mingjue earn back enough of Jin Guangyao's trust to get him to accept the help he so clearly needs? Can he convince Jin Guangyao... to come back to Qinghe with him?

    Summary

    Lan WangJi knew well that he had fallen in love with a stubborn man.

    It was stubbornness with which Wei Ying pursued his friendship in the Cloud Recesses all those years ago, despite constant rebuffs. It was stubbornness with which he clawed his way from the Burial Mounds the first time. And now, meeting Wei Ying in Yiling, child in his arms, he realized: it was the same stubbornness which persuaded him to go back into the Burial Mounds the second time.

    Wei Ying, his path once chosen, would never waver from it. All Lan WangJi could do then, was choose to walk beside him.

    (Never let it be said that Lan WangJi was any less stubborn than the object of his affections.)

    Summary

    Several of Hierophant’s tentacles descended from the ceiling, wrapping around the section of Rohan’s forearm where the bone had been roughly shoved out of slimy red flesh and pallid skin. 

    Noriaki gently took Rohan’s free hand in both of his, squeezing. Rohan glared, saying, “I don’t- need anyone holding… my hand. I’m not a child.”

    “I’m the one who needs my hand held,” Noriaki lied.

    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!
