    Summary

    “Why are you calling?”
    “I-”
    “If ye don’t fuckin’ tell me I’m gonna hang up.”

    ***

    In which it's autumn in the early 1970s, George is lost, and Paul's the champ who picks him up despite not knowing where he's going either. Maybe they'll find their way together, then.

    Or,
    two emotionally stunted scousers attempt to manage a small farm and bond through trial and error, sickness and health, the awful seasons that are autumn and winter, and Martha shedding enough fur to make a whole extra dog.

    Summary

    For a strange, wonderful moment, John had thought that if he pushed himself up and kissed Paul, Paul would not be horrified. Paul might stay. Paul might want him to.

    Paul is too large to balance on a might. So John squeezed his eyes shut and eventually he had fallen asleep.

    They had gone back to Liverpool and they had met Brian.

    (Summer, 1963. They've had two singles reach number one, released a record-breaking album and their tour looks set to sell-out. Returning from Spain, John's finally certain of what he wants - which would be useful if Paul wasn't behaving so strangely.)

    Summary

    Stuart comes forward with his bass held out between them. Paul looks at it and looks back at him, eyes narrowed like he’s expecting a trap.

    "Why?” he says.
    “Because you’re gonna need a bassist,” Stuart says. “And I’ve got a bass."

    Or - Liverpool, 1961. Before he leaves for Germany, Stuart and Paul talk about basses and John Lennon.

    Summary

    No one had prepared her for John.

    Maybe they could have put aside fifteen minutes in-between teaching her how to make her stitches even and her chicken cooked through – what to do if your man is also sleeping with his bassist.

    (1962; 1964; 1968. Cynthia reflects on her husband's relationship with Paul.)
