    Summary

    The amount of work it takes to get a bill on the congress floor is appalling, even for someone as astute and persuasive as Alexander Hamilton. He only need as handful of signatures now, unfortunately, one of those happens to be Jefferson's. Hamilton had a feeling that getting it wouldn't be easy, but he's never imagined it would lead him here.

    Summary

    NOW COMPLETE

    “If you did play chess," Ross said, "you’d remember that a pawn can become a queen. The most powerful piece on the board, Parker, remember that? But—” Ross smiled— “only if it obeys.”

    He adjusted his tie, stood, and looked down at Peter. “I’ll ask you again,” he said. “Eventually. You may feel differently after you’ve been living in a six-by-six cube without sunlight or fresh air for a few years.”

    “What pawns do,” Peter said, voice shaking slightly, “is sacrifice themselves for the greater good. I have no regrets.”

    He had a lot of regrets.

    Like, a lot. A crapton. A shitload. An overloaded dumpsterful.

    “When I visit you on the Raft,” Ross said, “you’ll be old enough to grow a beard.” The cell door clicked shut behind him.

    They're in the play!

    (They go through the requisite amount of hey, this doesn’t look like heaven, this looks like a theater!, which takes… more time than you might think, especially since they aren’t all speaking to each other.)

    Summary

    It was in another retreat, with the buzzing of flies thick about them, with his arm around Burr’s waist to hold him up, that Alexander looked up and saw the sky change colors.
