    Summary

    This was born as a collection of one-shots, all based after the end of the book, all written in chronological order.
    They're as canon-compliant as they can be and explore what might happen after Oliver leaves B. after his one-night stay.

    Summary

    "There are certain moments that have stuck with me, no matter how hard I try to shake them. Moments that are clearer than the rest, moments that have wormed their way into the recesses of my mind, moments that come rushing back without any warning, moments that barrel full-speed into my chest, crushing me, crippling me."

    Justin overdoses and Brian is forced to watch helplessly as yet another nightmare unfolds before his eyes.

    Summary

    "It was Oliver's third night in Italy before we had the villa to ourselves."

    This story is set during the timeline of Find Me, which I have now read. Please note that it does contain spoilers, but if you are broadly aware of how things end for Elio and Oliver in Find Me then they will not be significant ones.

    To avoid any spoilers here, a full summary is under the cut.

    Summary

    Oliver learns the piano. Because he wants to. And it’s definitely not an excuse to ask a certain pianist what he really thinks about J. S. Bach.

    (Alternatively, a gentler fix-it AU of sorts where Oliver and Elio try to be friends after the summer, and fail miserably.)

    Summary

    "Elio," Oliver called, before Elio could take more than a few steps. Elio could have collapsed with relief at the sound. Say anything, Oliver, just make this moment last a little longer. Elio turned, and for long seconds the two just stared at each other again, as if, now that he had Elio's attention, Oliver wasn't sure of what he had for a moment felt compelled to say. "There's still something here, isn't there?"

    Summer, 1988. Elio pays a visit to his friend studying at Columbia, and manages to find so much more than he'd bargained for.
