    Summary

    (3rd chapter edited).
    John and Paul meet as kids. John presents as alpha, confused by the changes and his feelings for little, blank Paul, who only later becomes omega and joins a rock band full of alphas, pretending to be one himself. John wants to protect Paul, and maybe win his heart.

    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

    The band secured a contract from EMI; John, Paul, and George have managed to rent a flat together; and that's about as far as the list of lucky breaks goes. John and Paul are trying to navigate a world opposed to their relationship, EMI wants a new drummer, and George is inexplicably suffering from constant nightmares. It's confusing and tiring and worrying, but they don't have much of a choice except to figure it all out. It's a good thing they have each other.

    Summary

    “Just got back from London the other day.”
    “London…wow!”
    “I know, exotic isn’t it eh?” he retorted with that ubiquitous sarcasm of his.
    Light-heartedly, Paul joked back, “Still a sarcastic shit now are ye John?”
    “Naturally. And yourself?”
    “No, no – not anymore. Actually, the cheek on me seemed to fade out sometime after you left; always were a bad influence on me, Johnny.”

    ***

    Or, The Beatles never got famous because they disbanded after Pauls father found out about his love affair with John.
    After 10 years or so in London, John shows up in Liverpool; they have a drink or two, and discuss the past they'd been suppressing for so long.

    The story chiefly takes place in a pub, but later shifts to other settings, and includes many flashbacks.

    Summary

    This is an immediate continuation of "Carry that Weight", and pics up on New Years Eve/Day 1966. It begins with someone being accidentally dosed with LSD, and with Paul gleaning an insight that helps him feel stronger and more able to recover some of his sexual energy, which is pretty explicitly covered in the first three chapters. After that, the angst comes, hard and heavy, as events force the investigation into Paul's rape into a new area. John's bad judgement continues as his own PTSD goes unaddressed. The boys must head into the recording studio, and then all the touring troubles begin. 1966 is not a happy year.
