    Summary

    Elio closes his eyes and hisses a quiet breath out through his teeth. He thinks about how often he’s heard his own name called, shouted, moaned, whispered. About how different it sounds from the lips of someone who’s known you completely, inside and out. It’s been six years since he’s heard that voice, heard his name said that way. He wishes he’d been able to prepare.

    Summary

    “Look… It doesn’t have to be tomorrow, or the next day, or next week, but you have to start trying soon. It’s been over a year."

    When Oliver nods and enough time has passed that she’s convinced he’s heard her well, Sadie smiles and runs a hand through her wild hair, shaking it out.

    “You need to get laid, anyway,” she says breezily after another sip.

     

    Or, Oliver was wealthy and set to go to a good university before his father found out he was gay and took everything away. Over a year later he's on his feet and saving to pay his own way through university, when he meets rich, sheltered Elio in a bookshop. With Oliver's new anxieties and Elio's apparent fairytale view of the world, they help balance each other out over time.

    Summary

    And sometimes I wonder,
     
    If we had met in a different time,

    In a different place,

    Somewhere where all the stars were aligned,

    Would we still have reached for them?

     

    AU in which Elio and Oliver meet in 2020 New York City.

    Took a lot of elements from the novel, some might not make sense if you haven't read it. Obviously Andre Aciman is a gift to this world and I don’t take credit for any of his gifts to us.

    Please leave comments they will make my day :)
