    Summary

    Timmy and Armie meet on Monet's berm 25 years after CMBYN to go over what life gave and took away from them.

    “Your hands are cold.” Mundane but safe start.

    “I know.” Acceptance and agreement but also some well-guarded detachment.

    “Some things never change”. I know you.

    “Only the ones that we never forget, Armie.” I remember everything, just like you.

    We are facing each other now. The curls are tame and sprinkled with salt and pepper here and there and the fine lines around his eyes lay bare some tenderness and quiet sorrow.

    “Can I?” I take his hand and breathe some hot air over his knuckles. Let me be more than a stranger, please.

    “Don’t…” A stranger can’t make me lose my sanity. Be a stranger. Please.

    Summary

    “Look… It doesn’t have to be tomorrow, or the next day, or next week, but you have to start trying soon. It’s been over a year."

    When Oliver nods and enough time has passed that she’s convinced he’s heard her well, Sadie smiles and runs a hand through her wild hair, shaking it out.

    “You need to get laid, anyway,” she says breezily after another sip.

     
    Or, Oliver was wealthy and set to go to a good university before his father found out he was gay and took everything away. Over a year later he's on his feet and saving to pay his own way through university, when he meets rich, sheltered-from-reality Elio in a bookshop. With Oliver's new anxieties and Elio's apparent fairytale view of the world, they help balance each other out over time - and uncover each other’s secrets.

    **NOT named for Charmie reasons and was never a Charmie thing - named after a song**

    Summary

    And sometimes I wonder,
     
    If we had met in a different time,

    In a different place,

    Somewhere where all the stars were aligned,

    Would we still have reached for them?

     

    AU in which Elio and Oliver meet in 2020 New York City.

    Took a lot of elements from the novel, some might not make sense if you haven't read it. Obviously Andre Aciman is a gift to this world and I don’t take credit for any of his gifts to us.

    Please leave comments they will make my day :)
