    Summary

    Outline for a sequel to the book 'Alec: A Novel', 2021, by William di Canzio, which is a sequel to 'Maurice'. My idea is there could be a trilogy of novels: 'Maurice', 'Alec', 'Clive'.

    PLOT OUTLINE ONLY. NOT RELATED TO MY OTHER MAURICE WORK.

    Summary

    And finally, Nick and James have reached England. As soon as they have gone through customs at Harwich, they are in for a lovely surprise, because Clive is there to pick them up!

    This fic is a direct sequel to the previous ones in this series. It depicts the last months of Nick's and James's tour de monde. If you found their travelogue a bit boring until now, don't despair, because now there's going to be real bad, smutty fluffstuff....Yuck!

    Summary

    In my previous fic 'If I Forget Thee' Nick gives a first hint at how he and his lover James went on a journey literally around the world.
    They officially travel as business partners and good friends, taking great care not to disclose the true nature of their relationship because homosexuality was punishable by law in most countries then. Spending time together on foreign soil has its challenges, and apart from sigthseeing, James has his own private objective to pursue.
    Interested? Have a good read then!

    Summary

    After months of absence, Clive fires up his laptop and tells us all about his 2021 holidays. There are merry gatherings, too much food is eaten and some of his loved ones resort to the Greenwood if you know what I mean.

    Summary

    After Clive, Maurice and Alec told their stories, it's Anne who now grabs a pen and some paper. Since she's an indispensable part of this series and since the original Anne is labeled 'shallow' or 'dull' by film critics, I think she deserves an experiment on her own turf.
    We will learn how she grew up and how she met Clive. It's just another love story between members of two similar and yet utterly different families. We all know that getting what you want can be far from easy. In fact, it sometimes really sucks. But a lot of fun is had on the way, especially for the readers.

    Summary

    It was at that moment that Clive saw him... dressed in a tan suit and alone.

    "Surely, Maurice would be in his mid 40s by now, he looks unchanged," he thought.

    Stunned at how remarkably similar this man was to his Maurice, Clive's hands started to tremble. His heart raced. The likeness was uncanny!

    Clive slowly walked towards the man who was dining alone and...

    Summary

    ‘Only those who get upset over losing what they believe to be rightfully theirs are truly alive. I ought not to acknowledge that. Being respectable equals being dead and I see no trouble in continuing to be in that fashion.’

    My new project is dedicated to the period of Clive's and Anne's engagement. These few months do not stand out much in the original novel and much less in fhe film. It left me to wonder how Clive truly felt about Maurice, the man he loved and who would be abandoned after the wedding. And of course, I was mighty worried about Maurice, who was about to lose everything he lived for.

    This is a gift to two fellow fanfic writers, Julie_Anne and Annethepancake whose works I absolutely adore and whose inspiring comments on my other works gave me endless joy...Thank you, merci mille fois, dankjewel, obrigada eternamente!

    Spoiler alert: Like my previous fic 'Under the Waves', this is not a fun ride with 21th-century characters living in a mess of cars and cats. However, I wanted it to be a light read with only a wee pinch of tragedy.

    Summary

    Summary

    Now that I finished this fic, I must admit it surprised me. It kind of took its own direction and I just went with it.
    Maurice and Alec and family in Malta, Clive with his family and relatives in Pendersleigh, the Chapmans in London and, above all, for they surprised me by calling in uninvited and appearing here and there, Kitty and her friend Violet. Still I managed to keep my title as all these are flashes of just a normal Christmas. And I finished by Twelfth Night, still during Christmas time.

    Summary

    It is 1933 on Clive's side of the world. Summer of 1933 was exceptionally sunny, I checked it out. Leslie, now 15, and Irene spend their summer holidays at home. Leslie is growing and forming his own mind about the world, and brings home some very unorthodox books to read. He may (or may not) explore his father's library. And what better place to read in quiet solitude and cool in the shade than the boathouse?
    Clive and Anne will have their by now usual week at Juan-les-Pins. Robert is still there. Let's see where it may take us...

    The day I began writing about Clive I should've had my head checked out! He won't let me be. Every time I finish a part of these «Clive papers» I get a good idea to carry them further...

    Summary

    Day 5
    Prompts - “In the morning it was morning and I was still alive.” Charles Bukowski/ cuddling/ grey

    This would probably fit as a prequel to «I am still alive».

    A few months after the end of the War, Clive is still far from recovered. A thunderstorm brings all the horrors back.

    Summary

    [CH. 6 and 7 up. I cleaned up some things from previous chapters in the edit.]

     

    "For love to end where it begins is far more beautiful..."

     

    In every ending there lies a beginning...

    A minute by minute fic. Merging details from the book and film I attempt to fill in some of the blanks, or ''fade-in fade-out'' moments that occur before and after certain chapters. Every bit as my mad mind would like to imagine them. Not a novel idea, but this is an exploratory endeavor. Written in 3rd person, leaning mostly towards Alec's POV. Trying my damnedest to remain faithful, but I can't resist poetic liberty, so I may stray from canon. Though some parts are far from explicit, the story will eventually progress there. I so love this pair and I hope it shows. If I have the guts, hopefully this will lead up to a post-boathouse/aftermath story.

    Summary

    Thanks for the kind request - and all the insane work it took to change the plot midway...
    How roaring were the twenties for the Durham couple? On one hand, not much actually. Clive is now an MP, lives mostly in London and misses his wife, his kids and his calm country life. Anne has the children to care for, and a house to run, and is interested in modern educational and schooling methods.
    On the other hand, though... When I researched, after being very nicely asked not to break Clive's poor heart, I found out that if I wanted a time where unconventional and open relationships were possible, the twenties were my oyster. So here it is, and much longer than I had imagined it, and to be honest, I still feel I rushed things a little.
    I'll certainly write a third part of The Clive Papers, though I don't know when. Clive is much harder to capture than those lovable boys, Maurice and Alec. Thanks a million to the ones who kept reading.

    Summary

    I started this full of doubts and with my heart full of mistrust for the main character. Though it took me only a few days to write all this, it was a long process. I now feel quite differently about Clive. And I am almost certain I will come back to him, though not just now.
