    Summary

    According to Forster's notes on 'Maurice', epilogues are for Tolstoy. But Forster did write an epilogue for 'Maurice', although he later scrapped it. This is another attempt to imagine a future for the novel's three central figures.

    Summary

    The Russet Room, Pendersleigh Park, Wiltshire, night of 13–14 August 1913.

    'It seems rather strange.' Words that had seemed to refer to Scudder’s plan to emigrate to the Argentine suddenly took on a new meaning, like a secret code that Maurice had failed to crack until now. Yes, it was strange – and uncanny: this inadmissable, overpowering attraction between them; Scudder suddenly in Maurice’s bed; the strange alchemy of their bodies together.

    Summary

    What?” Alec stared at him, and the hand he had still on Maurice’s arm tightened painfully. “Tell Mr Durham, are you mad?”

    Summary

    It wasn't like he doubted Alec's feelings, not truly. Sometimes, though – like now, when the whole world was already in turmoil and devotion of any kind too risky a gamble – he wasn't certain that he could be certain of anything.

    Summary

    Re-telling of the Alec/Maurice ship, all from the perspective of vivacious Alec. I feel that although he is a fully fleshed-out character, Alec remains a little mysterious despite the obviousness of his feelings which toss him headlong into his impulsive actions. I wanted to explore his inner thought process and to be honest I took this to the n'th level, stream-of-consciousness style. Sure to be full of inaccuracies and wild tangents, but for the day that's in it! There'll be heaps of chapters. Oh God will there ever.

    I just love the idea behind this, that Sherlock-the-story is part of Alec's happily-ever-after.

    Summary

    ‘“Once is enough”? Oh, is that so? Not the impression I’ve bin getting from you.’

    It’s Spring 1914, and Maurice and Alec are travelling in the Northern Italian lakes (possibly in an intended early stop on the Grand Tour). NSFW snapshot of their evolving relationship, with OC co-stars and (if it’s worked) some humorous twists.
