    Summary

    Somewhere in New York City, early '00s.

    "[Erato] with both hands plaits wreaths of roses."
    (Ancient Greek: Ἐρατώ) was named Muse of erotic poetry and mime, and represented with a lyre. Her name means "lovely" or "beloved" from the Greek word eratos.

    Some fluff, some angst, a lot of memories. Rated explicit for smut.

    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

    Chestnut and Hazel continued. A story of Edwardian summer love and discovery on the Dorset coast, 1909, centred on Tom, a brilliant but reserved young Oxford student who has long struggled with his sexuality.


    ‘He will find you, and you him – I’m sure of it.’ Unexpected events unfolding on a night out in Weymouth have changed everything for Tom. But what next? For to find – or be found – is not to seek…
