    Summary

    “You’re young,” Alex says bluntly. “Younger than me, even, and no one thought me any good until I’d proven myself in battle. And those of us who study the sword have many more opportunities to prove ourselves publicly--you lot are all shut away in your cloister, how would anyone even know?”

    “It’s not like they thought anything of me there either until the first Trials,” Thom says, a touch bitter. “I am so tired of proving myself.”

    “I would be too,” Alex says. “I’d look for something decisive. That’s not to say you have to do what Delia says, of course.”

    “You don’t seem to doubt me,” Thom says, something odd in his voice. He knocks his shoulder against Alex’s, carefully.

    Alex means to use Thom of Trebond to further his own plans. It doesn't turn out that way at all.

    Summary

    Alexander Hamilton was that rarity of rarities—a legitimate innocent bystander—but also a journalist who had not so much “witnessed” illegal activity as “screamed in its face.”

    “Wait,” Burr said. “He live-tweeted the cops putting Seabury in cuffs?”

    (Or, the one where Alexander Hamilton is a witness in need of protection and Burr has just lost a very crucial coin toss.)
