    Summary

    Irakli goes back to Batumi to do all the things that are expected of him: get married, get a proper job, do what's right by his parents.
    It should be fine, going back to how life was before.
    It isn't.
    But how does someone who's always wanted to please, who's used to drifting along without causing a fuss, find the courage to pursue what he wants?
    -
    Longfic, slow burn, eventual reunion, relationship-establishing, with a happy ending in Georgia. Because the defiance of this film still leaves me reeling and I wanted to try and imagine a future for them there.
    Shortcuts for those who want them: Irakli is back in Tbilisi from Ch. 33; Merab is around from Ch. 36; see ch. 1 for chapter-by-chapter contents.
    For snippets from chapters I haven't posted yet have a look on my tumblr under the tag 'atwd fic'.
    Massive THANKS to erinaceina my wonderful and very forgiving beta.

    Summary

    Merab and Irakli have left Georgia and moved to Holland. They are living in Amsterdam-Zuidoost, a colourful melting pot of a hundred different nationalities located between the old town of Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport. Things look good on the surface, but there is tension underneath.

    After watching the film again I was struck by the vulnerability and the love the two main characters emanate. The ending was very sad, so I decided to give these two a better future in my home country (and to all of you who know my other fics - this one does not feature any weed, I'm sorry LOL).

    Summary

    Merab meets his eye—grins—holds out the cigarette. Here, he says. We share.

    I told you, Tomer says, no lighter. No Feuerzeug.

    We pretend, Merab says.

    Tomer follows his friends to Berlin and meets a dancer.

    Summary

    Irakli learned a long time ago that life has a strange sense of irony. So he should not be surprised when a tragedy in the family offers him a second chance at happiness.
    But the real question is...will he take this chance?

    Summary

    Merab still was on this chair he slowly started to hate. Why had he placed it opposite his bed and not next to it? He needed a scheme to lure him over here. Or just – ask him plainly?

    Summary

    „If we don’t leave now, I’ll rip your clothes off you here and now.“ Merab’s voice sounded hoarse. Irakli grinned: „Meet me at my grandma’s. But wait a few minutes after I’ve left, okay?“

    Summary

    "What?"/"Nothing." is their love language no I will not be taking criticism.
    Prompt from a list of kiss prompts: 17. Tucking their hands beneath the other person’s shirt, just to watch them break the kiss and gasp in surprise at the sensation of cold/warm hands on their skin.
    This was my first go at writing them I think? Scene fill at the vineyard on the second night - post-sex clean-up and messing around fluff.

    Summary

    "Merab."
    Irakli interrupted Mary's aunt, and Merab knew that he must have blushed at the sound of his own name in that much-missed, drawling voice.
    "We've met." With effort, Irakli pulled his lips up into another grin, shook his head at something, and turned back to pouring the wine.
    "Oh, of course," Mary's aunt turned back to the serving plates. "You are both dancers, and you were both recommended by Mary - I should have guessed you'd know each other. How nice, to share a new city with a friend!"

    Merab has left the National Ensemble for a place at a London dance school. He's lodging with Mary's aunt - and owes Mary a lot of good English cigarettes for setting him up.
    To his surprise, Mary's aunt has a second lodger: Irakli is also in London, studying at the same dance school, and not, in fact, married to a girl in Batumi. He and Merab begin anew the process of figuring out what they want from each other, and what new possibilities their life in London offers.
    -
    I wanted to keep the feeling of the film as a ‘warm embrace’: this isn't a perfect world, but this fic focusses on the good things.
