    Summary

    1935. The Great Depression ravages the world. Fascism threatens Europe. Millions languish in poverty and despair. The nations stand on the brink of ruin or rebirth.

    Jughead Jones hopes to become a newspaper correspondent in time for the next great war. Veronica Lodge's wealthy family battles Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Betty Cooper tries to tone down the Riverdale Register's rabid isolationism just a little bit. The Blossom family disperses striking laborers with a little help from the Pinkerton Detective Agency. And Archie Andrews still can't make a decision to save his life.

    Or the Great Depression AU no one asked for.

    Bang.
    Bang.
    Bang.

    Summary

    The year is 1934, and the Golden Age of Hollywood is in full swing. Paul McCartney is a new actor on the scene, fresh off his debut musical-comedy movie that smashed box office records and charmed the critics. His next role is in a big-budget thriller film co-starring one of Hollywood’s biggest names—a one John Lennon, infamous for his versatile acting ability and leading roles and attitude. It will come down to more than just top billing as the two verbally spar with each other (both in-character and out of it) and harass their fellow actors and crew to the point of distraction. Of course, it’s well-known that a solid way to measure a film’s success is through the chemistry of its leads…which might be less of a problem than anticipated.
