Channing Tatum’s discharged Roman Centurion and Jamie Bell’s British slave are always my OTP.

I am reading CALL ME BY YOUR NAME now, I think it will be a perfect AU story for Marcus and Esca. 

The AU story can still happen in Italy. Esca’s father is British, but he owns a villa in Northern Italy. Back in 1980s, Esca’s scholar father hired local students to help him with correspondence every summer. This is how Esca met Marcus. 

Here’s the beginning of the book. I can totally see how Esca fell for Marcus in this scenario.

“Later!” The word, the voice, the attitude.

I’d never heard anyone use “later” to say goodbye before. … 

 “Later maybe.“ Polite indifference, as if he’d spotted my misplaced zeal to play up to him and was summarily pushing me away. … 

All these started the summer Marcus Oliver came into our house. They are embossed on every song that was a hit that summer, in every novel I read during and after his stay, on anything from the smell of rosemary on hot days to the frantic rattle of the cicadas in the afternoon. Smells and sounds I’d grown up with and known every year of my life until then but that had suddenly turned on me and acquired an inflection forever coloured by the events of that summer.

 Now I need a beautifully written Marcus/Esca young summer love story.
