    Summary

    "It was a strange feeling, permanently parting with all physical memory of the man that had unmasked Maurice’s heart, opened him up and set him free into a world of truth. While it was all over now, such an act of fondness could never really be forgotten."

    The first chapter in an endearing epilogue to E.M. Forster's "Maurice." I couldn't bear to part with Forster's brilliant characters when I felt their story was just beginning.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Summary

    "My suspicion had lately been growing that he disliked his job in the tunnels more than he let on, but of course I knew that pushing the subject would do more harm than good. If Alec wanted to talk then he would in his own time. Until then it was my duty to soothe him however I could."

    Summary

    "Alec was not merely a sensual, sexual being to be lusted over and taken to bed. He was a man and a boy who loved equally to be kissed and cuddled and pet and, when he would allow it, coddled with every bit of affection I could muster."

    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.
