    I love stories about people finding their way back to each other - this has divorce and that slow build to reunion, what could be better!

    Summary

    In the summer of 1991, John Lennon was 17 years old and ready for the time of his life playing in his shitty metal band, chasing older girls, and flipping burgers, but the arrival of a mysterious younger boy from London would change life as he knew it.

    ...

    Twelve years later, it seemed like Paul McCartney's life had finally reached the kind of normalcy he'd always craved; he has a job as a session musician for Abbey Road Studios, he's about to marry up-and-coming TV star Jane Asher, and has the best friends in the world. Unfortunately, it seems the rearrival of an old friend from Liverpool is going to throw a wrench into all of that.

    Summary

    “When I was fifteen I was thinking, ‘If only I can get out of Liverpool and be famous and be rich, wouldn’t it be great?’ I was always thinking I was going to be a famous artist. And possibly I’d have to marry a very rich old lady, or man, to look after me while I did my art.” John Lennon, 1975

    An AU in which John pursues art (with the help of someone to look after him), Paul pursues music and the two of them meet in the middle.

    What an intense fic. Saying that it's agonizing and yet beautiful seems like it's not nearly enough.
