    Summary

    Tycho leans through the precariously stacked datapads on the desk to kiss Wedge where he already has his face tilted up expectantly. “Maybe I'll never get tired of saying out loud that my husband is President of the New Republic.”

    Wedge absolutely does not blush as he counters, “And mine is the Vice President. What a lucky pair.”

    Summary

    Alex loved his job, he'd always been a political junkie. He'd also always been outspoken about his opinions and it went well with being a writer to spread those ideas. The campaign season was an exciting and fascinating time to be a journalist, but Alex was assigned to follow Thomas Jefferson and to report about him. It would be great if Alex believed in the man, but he didn't. As a matter of fact, he hated his guts.

    Summary

    It is the year 2020.

    The world has been rocked by four turbulent years of US politics. A newcomer on the political scene, Washington, has managed to unite cross-party factions against the incumbent leader. Part of his radical policy includes public endorsement of his planned staff before the election comes to pass. His pick for Secretary of Treasury is the brilliant but controversial Alexander Hamilton. When Alexander discovers his citizenship is in doubt, he knows he must go to any lengths to ensure the conflict is resolved before the it is discovered and damages the campaign.

    Enter Aaron Burr. Burr is an old college friend of Alexander's: smart, reserved, and most importantly to Alexander, both single and a US citizen. He's the perfect path to citizenship... so long as no one ever discovers their marriage is a ruse.

    Most Hamilton characters appear throughout this work, but I decided not to clog the tags. The same applies to common secondary/former ships.

    Summary

    "I did seven years in the Army, Angelica,” George reminds her. “I'm married to an active serviceman, and it's not like I'm POTUS. Why do I need a damn speechwriter?”

    “Madison says you can revisit that conversation once you stop making West Wing references, or throwing insults in the vague direction of Secretary Baker’s mother.”

    "Yeah, yeah, okay…”

    "And when you stop Mulligan from making actual finger guns at the Republicans over the NRA…”

    “That's Madison's problem,” George argues, incredulous. “He and TJ are department heads, for God’s sake; are you seriously telling me neither of them are equipped to handle Mulligan?”

    “Please.” Angelica doesn't quite snort, but it's a close thing. “You know as well as I do TJ’s been encouraging him.”

    **

    Modern political AU, in which George is a congressman, Gilbert is posted overseas, and everyone knows the one really running the show is Angelica.

    Summary

    “Can I get a name for your order, sir?” Alexander asked politely, his black sharpie already beginning to press into the cup.

    The man rolled his eyes and huffed out an annoyed sigh. Like, by requesting his name, Alexander had inconvenienced him more than any person ever had. He eventually spits, “Jefferson,” and Alexander just had to cross the J before sitting the cup down.
