Somewhere In My Youth…
Summary: An Alternate Universe Fic. A bit of an experiment. Maria and Georg are in High School in Salzburg.
Rating: K+ for now, but it will go up.
Some facts that will be revealed throughout the story but you may be interested to know prior to reading:
Georg Von Trapp attends the best and most expensive high school in Austria. He is an excellent scholar and athlete, very popular with his peers, comes from a very wealthy family with 7 brothers and sisters, and is going out with the most beautiful, rich, popular girl at school, Elsa Schrader. He likes Elsa well enough; she is nice and fun and pretty, but he doesn't always understand her priorities, and he doesn't know what love is. His personality is as is in the movie, eg quiet and brooding, prefers the outdoors and a few special friends to social settings and fake company. His mother died when he was young and his father is quite hard on him, cold and demanding in the way Captain Von Trapp is to his children in the movie, so he has learnt to be hard as a result.
Maria was orphaned at age 7, when her loving parents died of a fever, and, with no other relatives, was brought up by the Convent where she went to live and attend school. After taking part in a nationwide test, she has just won a scholarship to attend the very privileged high school that Georg attends for one year. At the end of the year she may take a test to continue to the next year if she wishes, but she is planning to leave school to take her vows and become a nun in training because that is the only home she knows, and it gives her an outlet that feels like it means something important for her extraordinary capacity to love. Her personality is also as in the movie, eg scattered, joyful, defiant, honest to a fault.
Georg and Elsa are in the year above Maria. But because the school is so exclusive, the classes are very small, so they have some classes together. Georg is 17. Maria is 16.
