fandom history, tropes?

Call Me By Your Name is a movie directed by Luca Guadagnino, starring Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet, based on the 2007 novel by the same name by André Aciman.

Set in 1983, the movie depicts the passionate love affair between 17-year-old Franco-Italian Elio Perlman and Oliver, the 24-year-old American grad student who spends one summer in Elio's parents' house to participate in an archeological dig with Elio's father.

A sequel is in preparation, based on the novel's sequel, Find Me (2019). The director and main actors should return.[1] The sequel will be set 10 years after the events of the first installment.


The canon Oliver/Elio Perlman pairing is the fandom's main FPS focus. There is an even greater RPS presence for the Timothee Chalamet/Armie Hammer pairing, sometimes in a poly or OT3 configuration with Hammer's canon wife.

As of Sep 12, 2020, there were 1752 works tagged Timothee Chalamet/Armie Hammer on AO3's tag for the pairing and 895 works tagged Oliver/Elio Perlman (AO3 pairing tag.)
