    Summary

    His mother always puts tarragon in her chicken soup. He adds a bunch to his basket. Sage—he loves the velvet softness of the leaves as he rubs them and the savory smell that rises from them—rosemary because it’s nearby, thyme because it’s so small and cute, fresh oregano. It’ll be the greenest soup Lucas has ever seen. Hmm, perhaps too green. He examines the recipe, scrawled on a notecard. Only two red chilis? He’ll get a few more, for the contrast.

    An ongoing series of short vignettes depicting the gastronomical lives of Lucas and Eliott through the years. (Note: mostly G- to M-rated except for select chapters.)

    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

    I adored this book, but the ending was very hard to digest. I have decided to write my own (happy) ending, because a love like Elio’s and Oliver’s deserves a happy ending with a vengeance.
    I have added more time-related references, but kept political ones to an absolute minimum. It’s more about music, food and the feel of the era.
    You will see that at some point the characters go to San Francisco. That part is only referred to, because I have never been there so I didn’t want to write rubbish. I also decided that Vimini should live, because I love her :)
    The story is narrated, like the novel, from Elio’s POV.
    There is quite a lot of explicit sex, but it’s loving and always consensual. If you do not enjoy M/M sex, please do not read the story (or the original book).

    Aciman is a genius and I am not, so please forgive my inadequacy. It is all intended as homage to a book I loved rather than an attempt to improve on it.

    Last but not least: I have mixed the book’s and film’s references, but I have only seen the trailer as the film is not out yet. If you have seen it, please forgive the errors. I wanted to publish my story before I could be influenced by Guadagnino’s masterpiece.
    Enjoy!

    Summary

    When they are in pain, most children regress to an infantile state and instinctively, blindly, call out to their mother. Sometimes to their father.

    Dean doesn't.

    He calls for Sam.
