    Summary

    In Aciman's book, Oliver visits Elio at Christmas and announces his engagement. He also treats Elio like a stranger, refusing to touch him or even be friendly. Aciman's Elio allegedly forgives Oliver, but what if he hadn't?
    Fast forward two years: Elio is in London studying Composition and Oliver is married (no kids) and suddenly appears out of nowhere. Elio is not happy about it, which is the understatement of the century.

    This is an AU of sorts to my previous series. You don't need to have read it to enjoy this story, but some references will be lost.
    The characters I created are present here too (Jack, Pierre, etc).

    This London will be grittier and less soft-lensed, because Elio is virtually penniless and determined to refuse financial help from his parents.

    I promise a happy ending, but the course of true love will not run smooth...

    Summary

    "Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way" / Moon River, 1961
     

    New York, 1988. A divine second opportunity, told through Oliver's eyes.

    An Elio + Oliver reunion, and I imagine what Oliver's life is like.
