geoviki: (Lichtenstein - history of slash)
So I've written fic. Before you get all excited, please note it isn't Potter-fic (stop crying, [livejournal.com profile] painless_j). I don't know why I needed to write this, but I did. It's not as though there is a fandom for it. The source is the book by E.M. Forster, Maurice, also a 1987 Merchant/Ivory movie. More than any book/movie pair, I think it's best to take in both, because the book explores a lot of motivation and inner turmoil of the characters, while the movie makes it all tangible. Plus there's boykissing.

Maurice was written in 1913-14 but remained unpublished until the author's death in 1971 because of the subject matter: homosexuality. (Since canon is already gay, I can't call this story slash). Wikipedia has a plot summary, which is adequate but misses the subtleties and complexities of the original story. My story takes place post-canon.

Title: Somewhere to Begin
Author: Geoviki
Source: Maurice by E.M. Forster
Rating: G (sheesh!)
Disclaimers: I don't own or profit from this story.
Warnings: Original characters.
Author notes: Thanks and props to [livejournal.com profile] parthenia14 for beta duties. I couldn't have too many betas, or I'd quickly deplete the potential readership, which I estimate at about 4.

For [livejournal.com profile] jonem, one of the nicest guys I know on LJ, in celebration of his new job. Congratulations! You will never again pass the Cheltenham Ladies' College without thinking of me now. For good or ill.
