    Summary

    There were a thousand reasons Alexander Hamilton didn't belong in politics, at least that's what Aaron Burr thinks. Our Alex, would disagree.

    When Alexander got into politics, he never dreamed what it would do to him, and the people he would come to love. He never imagined the pain he could cause with a little bit of power, or the love he would come to find. The only important thing to him, is that he doesn't throw away his shot.

    In obsessing over a legacy, that might just be what he does...

    Summary

    Though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Much to the surprise of absolutely no one, madness ensues, sparks fly, blood is shed, and heroes are born.

    Summary

    President of the United States Castiel Novak is popular, charismatic, and knee-deep in campaigning for a second term. He’d be the ideal candidate if it weren’t for the fact that he hasn’t dated once while in political office. With his opponent’s relentless PR team calling him incapable of emotional commitment, Castiel’s staff decides to remedy the situation by finding their boss a fake, picture-perfect boyfriend. And when Dean Winchester enters the scene, he and Cas become America’s new favorite couple, except they’ve got a whole lot of history between them and complicated feelings to resolve.
