*"After the Bombs" ends with the line "'til it all starts over again." Does "it" refer to a new wave of bombs in the short term (they'll be dancing until the attacks resume and they have to return to the bunkers), or life starting anew and rebuilding post-war? I like to think of it being the second.

** IIRC, the Queen goes on about herself a fair amount during the first song where she appears, when she's talking to ''William'', who would know who she was if anyone would. So maybe she just likes talking about herself.

**** There's a very good fanfic ([[http://archiveofourown.org/works/34910 The Sister's Bargain]], read it now!) that suggests the Queen adopted the child for her own, and Margaret's sister later came to try and reclaim the child.
