  1. Summary

    A Hamilton modern AU. Title from a well-known idiom and also this song probably.

    The overall scenario: Roles/cabinet positions are 1794-ish: Washington's fifth year in office, Burr a senator from NY, Hamilton as the Treasury Secretary, and I've kept Jefferson on as Secretary of State for fun. Angelica is the dean of Columbia Law School (with an Ed.D, so she sometimes appears as Dr. Schuyler). Everyone is a goddamn lawyer. John Laurens is alive because I said so.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    His fingers itch to touch T'Challa again, to feel the pulse throbbing solidly in his throat, close enough to hear the breath heaving loud and strong in his chest. But there is no time for sentimentality. There never is.

    "Are you gonna tell anyone?" Latts asks, with some trepidation. "Like, Trotz? Or Mac?"

    "No," Alex says. "Not Trotz or Mac."

    "Hello, my kids," Nicky's voice says calmly, and it's only by the greatest effort Alex doesn't flinch and jump like all three of the kids do. Burky actually squeaks. At some point, Nicky must have somehow got out of the car without being noticed and lurked in the shadows just to do this; Nicky's so much more of a dramatic, evil genius than anyone gives him credit for.

    Happy together, Eleanor thinks. Is Michael just fucking with her? He doesn’t have anyone else to mess with. He hasn’t exactly shown great promise in Chidi’s good person lessons.

    Or maybe he’s telling the truth. She thinks about Tahani’s smile, the way it goes straight to her gut, and wonders.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Wishes don’t do things, Nicke,” says Sasha. “But I would have come here for you... I would do it again.”

    “Thank you,” Nicke whispers.

    “It’s true,” Sasha says. “I remember home. I want it back. But when I think—if it came down to a choice.”

    Nicke feels light-headed, looking at him. “Sasha—”

    “I’m fine here,” says Sasha. “I like being here, when I’m with you.”

    “You should marry me,” Nicke blurts out. “It means nothing. I know it means nothing; but I want it, too—to be selfish this way, you know? I used to—when I came—I thought I’d died. I used to beg for a second chance at being alive.” He shuts his eyes and listens to the trees, the calm wind. Sasha rubbing his thumb over Nicke’s knuckles. He blinks his eyes open and raises his free hand to Sasha’s jaw. “I have it now,” he says. “My second chance is you.”

    “Yes,” Sasha says. Tears fall from his face and onto their hands, where Sasha grips him tightly, tight enough to hurt anybody but him. “I’ll marry you, if you want me to.”

    “I do,” says Nicke. “I don’t know if it matters.” He stares at how the moonlight maps out Sasha’s face in front of him. This second chance. “Maybe it doesn’t. I just want to make it right. I just need to make things right, for us—I just want to be happy. I want to live like a person. I want to be somebody that doesn’t just stay alive.”

    “Of course,” Sasha says. “Of course you do—you should be. There’s nothing left for us, you know.” He looks up to the sky, “Up there. I wish there was. I think—the only thing left to do now is to live.”

    “I used to think it was impossible,” Nicke says. “After I came. I thought for sure…”

    “But you did,” Sasha says. “You have.”
