    My Berenice..."

    Serena is shocked when old school friend and lover Bernie Wolfe arrives at Holby. Tormented by regret and nostalgia, she digs out the old mixtape that Bernie left her all those years ago, when they separated to leave for university, full of all the old songs they used to dance to every Saturday night in their youth, and the particular memories that accompany them force Serena to confront her feelings for the ex-army medic, the first love who she never truly forgot...

    Summary

    Shortly after relocating to Los Angeles, struggling musician Lacey French signs a management contract with Robert Gold. Cut-throat and well-connected, he's just the right person to launch her career into bonafide rockstar status. But as Lacey's success quickly grows, so does the tension between them. 1980s/Music Industry AU.

    Kinda slowburn. Eventual smut. Non-linear narrative (i.e. lots of chapters that are flashbacks into each of their pasts- especially Gold’s). I'll be updating tags/ratings/trigger warnings as they come.
