Among the many things happening in The Year of Dan Palace, one is an incidental love double-helix.
Strand 1: Nina loves Dan loves April.
Strand 2: Andy loves Jenny wants Dan.
In a typical love triangle, each of the participants somehow knows the other two. In the case of Nina, Dan, April, Andy, and Jenny, this isn’t always the case.
Nina and April have never met.
Neither have Jenny and April.
