    Summary

    “I piss on the English,” the Captain sneers.

    “As you piss on Thénardier, and the Fleur-de-lis, and all those that we trade with out of necessity,” Courfeyrac acknowledges. “You are notoriously hard to appease, have I ever told you that?”

    “Yes, frequently.”

    “Well, my dear Captain, once you figure out a way to keep this crew from mutiny without compromising your conscience in the pursuit of our goals, let me know, and I shall try my very best to fulfill your dreams of selling stolen goods in a way that benefits the greater good. For now though, we have possible recruits to muster. And you need to decide whether quarter will be given.”

    a.k.a. Enjolras is a fearsome Pirate Captain and Courfeyrac is a loyal if slightly exasparated Quartermaster

    Summary

    Completely irreverent college AU. Lafayette is an overly-enthusiastic exchange student constantly vidchatting his girlfriend back in France; Laurens plays football except for when he's benched for getting too aggressive or injuring himself on the field; Hamilton, of course, is young, scrappy, and hungry, and he left the Virgin Islands on a full scholarship--not that the real details behind any of their lives come out until after many, many jokes about dicks and some poorly-advised life choices.

    More characters come and go as needed, but this is heavily Gay Trio slice of life.

    Summary

    “You see, sir, I would seek your advice on a legal matter, which I believe may be relevant to your expertise.”

    Thomas felt at once on solid ground. Washington needed a lawyer, and Thomas needed clients. A much more straightforward exchange than he’d anticipated. “Well, I’d be glad to hear the details of your case, and see what I can do for you.”

    “I would be much obliged to you, sir, thank you for your time…”

    But before Thomas could suggest they both sit down, a little boy—Christ, where had he come from?—darted out in front of Washington. “Mr. Jefferson,” he said, thrusting out his hand for Thomas to shake. “Alexander Hamilton.”

    Summary

    It's been a good two years of no chaos, raising of the dead and world ending ploys. So, the family takes a chance on having a vacation. Unfortunately, someone forgot to mention that somewhere in the manual that when all things seemed too good to be true it means someone, specifically Egyptian gods, will be messing with you.

    The sequel you all requested, the third in the 'Mummy Series'.

    Summary

    Aaron wakes up to a throbbing headache and Alexander Hamilton sprawled over his stomach. He blinks at the ceiling as his brain tries, under the weight of its massive hangover, to reconcile what exactly is happening right now. Hamilton is heavy for such a small person. He doesn't snore, but on every exhale he makes a small, chuffing sound.

    "What the fuck," Aaron says.

      Bess and Robin return to Eltham after supper leaving him more content than he’s felt all month; after his usual evening visit to his Queen – a woman of immense kindness and remarkable self-sufficiency – he returns to the Long Gallery and the portraits of his family, illuminated now in soft candlelight. There’s his first stepmother, Queen Katherine, she of the plump cheeks, pale eyes, and flaming red hair; his second stepmother, Queen Anne, dark and sleek; his elder sister, Queen Mary (as he has proclaimed her), all smiles and long lashes; his younger sister, Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Pembroke and Richmond; his wives, Howard, Parr, and Oldenburg, all in a row; his own mother, the lovely Lady Tallboys; his grandparents, King Henry and Queen Elizabeth; his nephews and baby niece; and once again his father, tall, red-haired, broad of shoulder, magnificently garbed, one hand holding a scroll on which is printed a verse from the Gospel of Mark.

      Did you truly understand what you were doing? he asks the portrait. Did you cast your wife and daughter away to punish them, or was it just the easiest way to get what you wanted?

      But the portrait doesn’t answer; it never does, damn its eyes.

    Summary

    After the Battle of the Clouds - an attempted battle that was aborted by a giant rainstorm, a few days after Brandywine and a few days before Hamilton went off on the mill-burning mission on which he was erroneously reported dead - Hamilton spent the still-stormy night lying in the corner of George Washington's room, looking, according to a visitor to HQ, "so like a cat."

    So I had to write a fic about it, of course.

    The first time Hephaistion met Alexander, he was seven years old and Alexander was six. He did not know, then, that this boy would one day be king. He only knew that he a more impressive toy than Hephaistion did, and that was not fair.

    Summary

    "Meet me inside!"

    Laurens shoots Lee, and after that...well, after that, George tries his best. Perhaps it is too little, too late. Perhaps it is just enough, just in time to change everything.

    There are a few ways this can go, and most end with Hamilton gone, back to his wife, leaving George here without counsel and much the worse for the loss. George can envision the two of them, ten years from now, war over, divided by a mountain of words unsaid and relationship limited to the barest of formal letters and well wishes from each others’ wives.

    Summary

    “It’s called cavorting with the enemy,” Scipio told his fellow envoys. “We get close to Hannibal, Antiochus becomes suspicious of him, they fall out, we defeat the lot of them and go home rich.”

    Laelius made a noncommittal noise. “You sure that’s the only reason you want to get close to Hannibal?”

    “I,” said Scipio, “have no idea what you’re talking about.”

    Scipio goes to Ephesus on a diplomatic mission, and gets more than he bargained for.

      [HANNIBAL/SCIPIO = 2nd Punic War OTP 4EVER ♥]

      “Old friend,” said Hannibal, “I do believe you are out of moves.”

      Scipio burst out laughing, too. He couldn’t help it. Every time he thought he had the measure of Hannibal, he was astonished all over again. Laelius had been right, as usual. Scipio knew—and he was sure all present could see it too—that even if he’d had no diplomatic errand to run; even if there was no threat of war, no Antiochus, no Greece; even if they lived like gods in the sorrowless spring of Hesiod’s Golden Age, he would still have chosen to be here in Ephesus, playing petteia with this one singular man.
