Hi, hi, hi there! So, this story follows on basically from where 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' finished, and focuses on the couple trying to start their own family. The title 'Sympathy for the Devil' is the title of one of my favorite Rolling Stones songs, and I think it suits both Alex and this story well. This story was originally much darker than this version, but I felt it was too depressing and so I toned it down a fair bit. I mentioned in my last story that I took a tiny bit of inspiration from Mick Jagger + Marianne Faithfull, but I want to point out that I was only referring to very early on in that relationship. Marianne has also completely taken over as my inspiration for Lucy, but only really during the late 60s. So anyway, on with the story, and I hope you enjoy it

PLOT: [Set after the events of the novel] Alex and Lucy are trying to be a normal couple and start their own family, yet neither of them suspect that it may not be as easy for them as they first anticipated.
