    Summary

    Lady Adrienne Fairfax had never gotten to know her betrothed. Lawrence Washington was a man twice her age who was arranged to marry her eldest sister, Anna. However, after Anna’s passing, she found herself being the only one who could have fulfilled the marriage contract, as she had none of her own. Anna died when Adrienne was 3. And by the time she reached 13, Lawrence was sent off to fight a war for King and Country. After that, he fell prey to the same illness that took Anna and died not long after. Her family considered this as a sign.

    Adrienne had always been stupidly ambitious, and she intended to use his naive attachment to her benefit. Now, she was not a bad person, but she frankly had goals to reach. Goals that she’d never achieve if she did not jump at all opportunities to achieve them. Unfortunately, this godforsaken winter encampment was a sacrifice she must make to maintain her influence over the over-glorified Commander-in-Chief.

    Summary

    "The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."
    Elizabeth Walker knows her place in the world, but that doesn’t mean she is happy with it.
    That doesn’t mean she is happy to be staying- to be sheltered- at her father’s estate while he deals with congress in York, and her older brother, Joseph, deals with the parties and games of Philadelphia, while she makes sure her house stays put- and out of British hands.
    And that doesn’t mean she is happy to be dragged into the war itself, after months of defeats outside Philadelphia, when finally on a cold December night, a dying soldier shows up at her door, and his commanding officer follows.
    But, deep down, a part of her is happy when it means change- change in the war, change in her life- when she is recruited by the young, passionate, and downright angry Major Benjamin Tallmadge to help revive the army’s dying supply system and keep the men staying at Valley Forge alive.
    By whatever means possible.

    Summary

    Alexander Hamilton came up from the ashes of a tragedy stricken childhood of Dickensian proportions with an all consuming desire to prove himself.

    If only he knew what was to come.

    Summary

    "Major Benjamin Tallmadge was not having a good week. . First, it had started with a game of shuffle, a British ploy involving two spies, each with contradicting stories. Then, Sackett fell prey to the plot, costing the man his life. And, while he was distracted by that, Sutherland had shot Lady Adrienne Fairfax, the pride and joy of General Washinton, while aiming for the Marquis, who was riding with her. The ring was still resisting his necessary changes to their operation, and to top it all off, none of his men were obeying his orders. That particular point was proven once again when Caleb entered his tent. The tent he had asked the Corporal to make sure no one, not even Caleb, entered for the next couple of hours so he could pretend to get work done. He sat at the desk, sure, but his focus was less on the high-piled stacks of paper and more on his Army regulation flask and its contents."

    Summary

    "This was how her days passed now, in numb silence. Headquarters was quiet now. That could have been McHenry, it could have been Lafayette, hell, it could have been George. Even Hamilton visited her, he brought her a bouquet of white roses and camellia flowers, worthiness and pity that is what they meant. The rest of the camp had moved, somehow, farther from the house, as if it had a barrier around it, forcing them back."

    Summary

    After the Lee-Laurens duel, the military family has an early Christmas dinner. Fluff and festivities ensue when the wine is flowing and mistletoe is hung, and George and Martha Washington take it all in stride.

    This fic is entirely based off of the fact that George was apparently rather affectionate towards Martha in private, and that Alexander and John would legitimately gift each other their favorite passages of literature (I’m not crying, you are).

    Summary

    How John Laurens moves from sleeping under the too-low ceilings of the garret to sharing a bed with none other than Alexander Hamilton.

    My take on the backstory behind the plaque in Washington’s Headquarters at Valley Forge that says that Laurens recorded hitting his head on the low ceilings of the garret when he woke up.
