    Summary

    John Laurens is the star of the basketball team. He's gotten used to the commotion surrounding his appearance; that's not what makes him nervous. What makes him nervous is what the assistant coach thinks of him. Alexander doesn't seem to be impressed by much; even when he is, he continues to push people away. He isolates himself. If John learned anything growing up, it's that nobody deserves to be alone.

    Summary

    With a few exceptions, John has never really been attracted to girls. He'd be lying, though, if he claimed it was the boy with red hair and a mouth that never stopped running that made him realize it; first, there had been the one with the high forehead and the slight Southern drawl.

    Summary

    "Your hands protect the flames
    From the wild winds around you
    Icarus is flying too close to the sun
    And Icarus's life, it has only just begun
    This is how it feels to take a fall
    Icarus is flying towards an early grave"
    - Bastille

    Based on a prompt by @Phocion on tumblr, who said "what if John and Alex were caught doing something that passed the boundaries of friendship and things led up until it reached a court martial" and I ran with the idea.

    Summary

    He is pleased to see Laurens, pleased very much to see him alive. Yet his chest also burns with an anger – fear, sorrow, confusion – having grown over the eight months of their separation which no letter helped to clarify or explain. Though he cares very deeply for his Laurens, wants him well and near, Hamilton also learned, not weeks after Laurens’ original departure south, that Laurens is in fact married.
     
    Laurens returns to headquarters from the southern campaign and Hamilton waits to find an answer about Laurens' marriage and his true feelings.
    [Part of a series but can be read as a stand alone]
