    Summary

    "The memory of his touch breaks her heart.

    She can still feel it; every soft caress of his fingertips, every grasping fist in her hair, every magnetic thrill of his body against hers. It was just one stolen moment, there amongst the great romances of literature. One fragment of a life that could have been."

    Cecilia remembers Robbie. A little introspective piece on love, grief, and disappointment.

    Summary

    Though, and this is where his stroking paused, there was another that had caught his attention. It was one thing to lust after a young girl, just on the cusp of becoming a woman (and how quick it would happen after he had had her). But another man. Surely, he wasn’t that much of a derelict to consider it. But he did.

    Summary

    When my high school English class studied Ian McEwan's (lovely) novel, Atonement, my teacher told us not to read ahead (for reasons that will be clear to you if you've read it or seen the film). The result of this was a small storm of crack rumours about what the mysterious plot twist was, of which a prominent one was that Briony, the creator of the story, was in fact a mermaid living in the Tallis family fountain. I was so amused by this that I promised, in the moment, to write such an alternate ending once we were finished the book. Some weeks later, in order to procrastinate on studying for my math midterm, I did do so: this is the result.

    It is written as a fifth part to the novel (which has four actual sections), and continues immediately from the final line of the novel. It is silly, cracky, and all around pretty unintelligible, but I still think it's quite nice and decided to put it up for fun. It emerged from a brain very recently steeped in exam revision, and is thus extremely specific to the text. If you have studied it, take a look to see it all inexpertly and ridiculously dismantled by me!

    Summary

    "Dearest Cecilia,
    The story can resume, our story can resume, the one I had been planning on that evening walk. I can become again the man who once crossed the Surrey park at dusk in my best suit, swaggering on the promise of life; the man who, with the clarity of passion, made love to you in the library. The story can resume. I will return. I will find you, love you, marry you, and live without shame.
    The story can resume, I will simply resume."

     

    Robbie didn't die on Bray Beach in Dunkirk and Cecilia didn't drown in the Balham tube tunnels. But they face other trials and tribulations as life moves on, learning that rekindling their old life is not as simple as just being free.

    Summary

    "When a writer is born into a family, that family is doomed." - Czesław Miłosz

    Briony Tallis's most famous novel was marketed as a true story, an attempt at atonement for a lie she told as a young girl. It took her nearly sixty years and three revisions to write.

    Above all, Briony Tallis wrote fiction and didn't care if the truth got lost in translation. What happened after the Dunkirk evacuation? Cee and Robbie begin their lives in the midst of war. Briony becomes a novelist. Life resumes.
