    Summary

    Elio closes his eyes and hisses a quiet breath out through his teeth. He thinks about how often he’s heard his own name called, shouted, moaned, whispered. About how different it sounds from the lips of someone who’s known you completely, inside and out. It’s been six years since he’s heard that voice, heard his name said that way. He wishes he’d been able to prepare.

    Summary

    Elio Perlman and Oliver Fox are immediate nemeses in their professional and personal lives, in this take on Nora Ephron’s 1998 film, You’ve Got Mail. After Elio’s mother passes away, he inherits her Upper West Side independent bookstore, a beloved haven that survived the neighborhood being overtaken by corporations, Duane Reade stores, and banks. Oliver works for his father’s company, one of the most successful internet marketplaces in the world. Neither knows that the other is his anonymous online friend that he met on Reddit years earlier. Though the two instantly clash, can they eventually find common ground to form a friendship, or perhaps something more?

    Summary

    The story is set between London and France during WW2. Elio is Jewish but Oliver isn’t, for plot reasons. There is an initial relationship between Oliver and a male OC, which I will keep short and sweet, and without which Oliver and Elio wouldn’t be able to meet.
    The story was inspired by Charlotte Gray, but many things have been changed for obvious reasons.
    There will be angst because we are in Nazi-occupied France and Elio is a Jew, but I guarantee that the boys will have their happy ending.

    The usual warnings apply: the characters are not mine, I don't own anything but my own reinvention of their story.

    Please do not repost my work on other platforms without my permission.

    Enjoy!!!!

    Summary

    There is light in everybody, but there is also a darkness. A person can take another to heaven and beyond, but they can also create a private hell.

    Summary

    “I have some news”

    Elio laughs, giddy with delight at hearing Oliver’s voice after so long.

    “Oh yeah? You’re getting claimed I suppose?”

    Instead of a returning chuckle there’s silence, and Elio feels his heart drop out through the bottom of his stomach.

    “Yeah...yeah I might be. In the spring.”


    In a D/s AU where everything is the same apart from the one thing that might make all the difference, what if Oliver didn't choose to leave Elio, but left because he had no choice?

    Summary

    "Elio. Elio Perlman."

    "Nice to meet you, Elio. I'm Oliver."

    Elio narrowed his eyes. "Just Oliver? Isn't that a bit...unprofessional?"
     
    Oliver chuckled. "If you feel uncomfortable calling me by my first name, you can of course just call me Professor...but you would be the only one in this class."

    Elio has studied at several wizarding schools in Europe already. But when his father gets a job offer from the University of Cambridge, Elio has to spend the last two years of his studies at Hogwarts. And while the school itself is ordinary at most, one art history teacher is anything but...

    Summary

    After the phonecall with Elio, Oliver is still planning on getting married. In January, something changes.

     

    “I have no intention of marrying somebody who I’m not in love with. I have no intention of marrying somebody who isn’t in love with me. I deserve better, we both do. I’m not gonna be your back-up plan.”

     

    “I never said I wasn’t in love with you,” Oliver clarified, but it only caused Jasmine to raise an eyebrow. “I’m not in love with you,” he said then, with a sad chuckle. She nodded.

    Summary

When nuclear disaster strikes a nearby power plant, Samuel welcomes two refugees into their home, a Mrs. Miriam Trent, and her sixteen-year-old son Oliver who is sick with radiation poisoning.

    Summary

    How could I have known? Known that this boy would flutter like a sparrow riding on the wings of music ready to burst open my whole world with the sensitivity of an open wound, and all of the intensity.
    -
    When Oliver enters that little jazz bar tucked deep in the underbelly of Milan, he could not have known that he had set a story in motion. A story of music, life and love. The love of a city, himself and a young pianist with the stars in his eyes.

    Summary

    “Do you remember that Bach piece you played the last time I was staying here?”, Oliver goes on, “Would you play it again?”

    Still no reaction from Elio. But as Oliver decided to walk over to him, the notes began to change into the short sequence that burned itself into his mind and he settled down one of the armchairs behind the piano. He let the familiar tones sink in and, with a smile around his face, thought back to the banter they had caused.

    “What no changes this time?” Oliver asked amused, as the notes slowly faded away.

    “I thought they drove you mad”, he said in a flat tone. “Anyways, I am neither Liszt, nor Busoni.”
