    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

    "Who knows?" Luke darted a faint smile at Ben and Rey as they stewed in silence and disbelief. "The two of you might even learn to get along. Right, Leia?"

    "Like a house on fire," the General deadpanned. "Complete with screams, flames, and people running for safety."

    "Indeed." Luke's blue eyes twinkled. "There may be no survivors."

    Love is so short, but forgetting is so long - Pablo Neruda

    Of all the places to run into his ex, it had to be at a Tesco's when he's wearing his bloody pyjamas. At three in the fucking morning.

    (A Sherlock University AU...that has some pining!John to balance out our canon pining!Sherlock)

    Summary

    It had begun innocuously enough, when Sherlock had found a scrap of paper under the armchair that had become reserved solely for John’s use. Sherlock Holmes, it read, with 221B Baker Street underneath.
