    Summary

    "I don't love you anymore," declaimed the words that echoed in his mind restlessly, memories of what they had been and the nothing they had become to each other haunting his sleep-deprived soul like the chant of a tormented ghost. Clive did not love him anymore, repeated his brain in a lifeless, matter-of-factly tone. He had stopped loving him, so he had been told with no fear nor remorse. Since that time, Maurice had watched himself get used to his days darkening as soon as they were born, gearing himself up to welcome loneliness, death even.

    So it had been for Maurice, until a telegram calling out his name — begging, not without a nuance of forced apathy, for him to be seen again — was delivered to him like a thunder shattering the candid clouds.

    Summary

    And finally, Nick and James have reached England. As soon as they have gone through customs at Harwich, they are in for a lovely surprise, because Clive is there to pick them up!

    This fic is a direct sequel to the previous ones in this series. It depicts the last months of Nick's and James's tour de monde. If you found their travelogue a bit boring until now, don't despair, because now there's going to be real bad, smutty fluffstuff....Yuck!

    Summary

    After Clive, Maurice and Alec told their stories, it's Anne who now grabs a pen and some paper. Since she's an indispensable part of this series and since the original Anne is labeled 'shallow' or 'dull' by film critics, I think she deserves an experiment on her own turf.
    We will learn how she grew up and how she met Clive. It's just another love story between members of two similar and yet utterly different families. We all know that getting what you want can be far from easy. In fact, it sometimes really sucks. But a lot of fun is had on the way, especially for the readers.

    Summary

    ‘Only those who get upset over losing what they believe to be rightfully theirs are truly alive. I ought not to acknowledge that. Being respectable equals being dead and I see no trouble in continuing to be in that fashion.’

    My new project is dedicated to the period of Clive's and Anne's engagement. These few months do not stand out much in the original novel and much less in fhe film. It left me to wonder how Clive truly felt about Maurice, the man he loved and who would be abandoned after the wedding. And of course, I was mighty worried about Maurice, who was about to lose everything he lived for.

    This is a gift to two fellow fanfic writers, Julie_Anne and Annethepancake whose works I absolutely adore and whose inspiring comments on my other works gave me endless joy...Thank you, merci mille fois, dankjewel, obrigada eternamente!

    Spoiler alert: Like my previous fic 'Under the Waves', this is not a fun ride with 21th-century characters living in a mess of cars and cats. However, I wanted it to be a light read with only a wee pinch of tragedy.

    Summary

    [CH. 6 and 7 up. I cleaned up some things from previous chapters in the edit.]

     

    "For love to end where it begins is far more beautiful..."

     

    In every ending there lies a beginning...

    A minute by minute fic. Merging details from the book and film I attempt to fill in some of the blanks, or ''fade-in fade-out'' moments that occur before and after certain chapters. Every bit as my mad mind would like to imagine them. Not a novel idea, but this is an exploratory endeavor. Written in 3rd person, leaning mostly towards Alec's POV. Trying my damnedest to remain faithful, but I can't resist poetic liberty, so I may stray from canon. Though some parts are far from explicit, the story will eventually progress there. I so love this pair and I hope it shows. If I have the guts, hopefully this will lead up to a post-boathouse/aftermath story.
