  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.

    Summary

    It’s not that Sasha doesn’t love what he does, and that he doesn’t look forward to coming back to work, it’s just that everything is so dramatic on Monday mornings. Burky’s on the phone when Sasha walks through the door, and turns a pleading look on Sasha that Sasha ignores as he passes straight through the reception area and into the back.

    There’s half a pot of coffee left for Sasha to avail himself of before the meeting, which means he’s not the last one to arrive, but a lot of the regular weekday crew is there before him. Sasha is finishing pouring his cup of coffee when Dr. Backstrom comes through the doors.

    “It’s Monday,” he says by way of greeting, and Sasha nods, sipping his cup of coffee. He salutes Sasha with his travel mug as he heads into the office he and Sasha share. Sasha trails after him. “One morning we’re going to come in here and he’s going to be curled up under his desk crying.”

    “If you wanna go tonight he could come with us,” Sasha says.

    “Well, I hate that idea, so no,” Backy says. “Tomorrow night.”

    “Then at least, you know, you’ll have had the day off and have lots of energy,” Sasha says.

    “What do I need lots of energy for?” Backy says.

    “I don’t know, maybe you put out on the first date, I don’t know your life,” Sasha says.

    “Oh my God, get out of here,” Backy says.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Sasha comes back for him after Nicke hears a car pulling out of the driveway, bare feet padding around the house on the flagstones.

    “Please untie me,” Nicke says, when Sasha comes to a standing stop next to him, looking down with opaque confusion all over his face.

    Sasha makes a sound that Nicke thinks is very close to relief when he sinks to his knees to do it, hands occupied with freeing Nicke’s and then staying there, holding them together between his broad, rough palms.

    “Are you okay?” Nicke asks him thickly.

    Sasha presses a kiss to Nicke’s parallel thumbs, lips hot against cold skin. “Yes. Better than okay.”

    “What did she say?”

    “She say…” Sasha pauses, seeming not to notice or care how cold it is, or that he’s kneeling on stone. “She say she’s happy I find someone exactly right kind of person for me.”

    “She doesn’t know me,” Nicke points out.

    “She saw you fight Zhenya on TV,” Sasha says, starting to smile again, just a little hint of it. Nicke is so relieved he doesn’t know what to do. “So she have some ideas.”

    Nicke thwacks him in the arm, grinning helplessly, heedless of the pain in his face.

    Summary

    “What’s going on, Matts?”
    “Maybe I just want to do something fun, I don’t know.” Auston says, defensive. “Maybe I’m being nice.”
    “Okay,” Mitch says. He doesn’t sound convinced. “And...”
    “And,” Auston winces, already regretting every decision he’s ever made, “I sort of need you to pretend to date me so I can win a bet with my sister.”

    It’s really warm, under the covers with Mitch.

    It’s quiet for a few moments, only a little awkward. Then:

    “Hey, Aus,” Mitch says. Auston turns to look at him. “If you’re the gay friend, and I’m the gay friend, who’s flying the plane?”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Canada ruined you, you probably wear flannel now.”

    “If I ever do, you can mercy kill me,” Auston promises, solemn. There’s still one of Mitch’s flannels in his closet, way at the back so it won’t contaminate any of Auston’s actual not-horrifying shirts.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “But our get together story isn’t exactly romantic.”

    “Did you come up with one?” Mikko demands. “Tell! We need to know, if he asks.”

    “He asked me out out of pity.”

    “You agreed with me that it was romantic!” Gabe protests.

    “You kissed me to shut me up.”

    “Well there has to be some way to do it,” Gabe replies, his voice a rumble in his chest that Tyson can feel.
