    Summary

    She meets her at a soda fountain in Avon-by-the-Sea, on the outskirts of Asbury Park. It's her daddy's shop and she works there in the summers. She's recently graduated, supposed to be starting at Jersey City University in the fall.

    "Liberal Arts for now, I suppose," is what she says. Chris gets all of this out of her just by saying the words, "Workin’ here long?"

    She wouldn't even know her name yet if not for the tag on her uniform that says Mary in blue letters.

    Summary

    "At the point I met Dan I didn't feel that confident. It sounds strange but him being interested in me made me feel interesting. He was a guy and he just kind of treated me like this New Yorker girl who wanted to make a record and was like, ‘Hey, let’s just see what happens.’ But he was in love with the songs."
    ~ Lana Del Rey, BBC1 Radio interview, July 7 2014

    Summary

    Slight AU wherein Bel and Freddie had a rather physically intimate good-bye before he left for his little soul searching trip and Bel finds herself twenty-eight, single, and "in trouble". However, nothing much else is different. She still has a show to produce, Hector has been late every day for six months, Freddie has a wife, ITV is trying to poach BBC talent, crime in Soho is on the rise, the US wants to put nuclear weapons in Great Britain, and everyone still dislikes Angus McCain. Needless to say, Bel's "little problem" might be the least of the trouble facing the Hour.

    Summary

    For the purpose of glorifying the biographer, this incident should never be made known; but for the fact that it happened to Orlando, and held some significance, however small, in Orlando’s life, it must be duly noted and patiently presented, whatever the biographer’s own objections.
