    Summary

    Alex had never had an easy life. His dad walked out on them, his brother disappeared and his mum was sick.

    And then she died.

    The plan starts to crumble when he finds himself with friends, enemies-

    -and in love with his roommate.

    Summary

    Alexander was a broken mess.

    That wasn’t a new fact to anyone who knew him, which was a very small number. He was the homeless kid who spent way too much at the public library and refused to beg for money, meaning he would go for days at a time without eating. His head hung on his memories,
    his words were his only escape, and his mind seemed to be his only good element.

    So when he gets a scholarship to King’s college, he had only one goal- to get a degree and make the most out of his pathetic life.

    But he doesn’t expect to make friends, he doesn’t expect to see people he knows.

    And he certainly didn’t expect to fall in love.

    Summary

    John Laurens is a poor college drop out who works too many jobs and tried his hardest to keep him and his son, Phillip Laurens, off the streets. Phillip's mother had wanted nothing to do with Phillip, so John was the one who took the small kid in at just the age of twenty. Five years later, they were still living in New York, though money was getting tight.

    Then John met a very interesting man by the name of Alexander Hamilton.

    Note: The political beliefs expressed in this book do not directly reflect my beliefs. None of my characters are perfect people (Please don't take their mistakes out on me), and none of them are perfectly educated on everything in the world (please don't take that out on me). This book was written at a time when I was really pissed off at the world, and it SHOWS.

    Summary

    In a world where the most important thing you can do with your life is to find your given soulmate, get married and have children, John Laurens struggles with trying to stay true to himself, even if it means living outside of society, at least inside his head.
    He reads, and he thinks, and he researches, and he writes, trying to make sense of it all, trying to understand and maybe, someday, make others understand, that the world is not really as it seems. That there's no one way things have to be. That life isn't simple, it's messy and it's painful and it's right. That they're not free. That soulmates are a lie.

    AKA the super slow-burn Soulmates AU that's more revolution and reflections on freedom than actual romance. Or, also, the one that takes itself way too seriously. *includes fake history quotes and me trying too hard*

    Summary

    This story parallels the last few chapters of "I Like You a Lot" and most of "Provoke Outrage." If you haven't read them, it's still a good story on its own. Briefly, the government has been taken over by the evil President George King, and the Movement, led by Alex Hamilton, John Laurens, Angelica Schuyler, and Gil duMotier de Lafayette, is fighting to bring King down and restore the Constitution. Martha "Patty" Manning, a courier for the Movement, was engaged to Nathan Hale, and was pregnant when he was killed. With King's forces searching for her, she was smuggled out of New York to the Lafayette family castle, Chavaniac. Shortly thereafter, Danny Phoenix, John Laurens's right-hand man, was arrested on a trumped-up murder charge. Alex and the others broke him out of prison, and he too got out of New York with Lafayette's help. Now Danny and Patty find themselves in France, all contact with their friends and family cut off. Soon, though, they meet Blake Percy, his wife Maggie, and others who are helping to support the Movement from France.

    Summary

    Based on this post by @adhd-ahamilton

    Alexander Hamilton, a fast-talking New York City lawyer, is not at all excited about spending a month in the middle of nowhere, South Carolina. However, this court case might be his only way to stand up to British rule in the 21st century United Colonies of America, so he takes the case of one Henry Laurens, who is suing a British customs agent, and packs his bags. Little does he know, he's walking into a world of tragic family secrets, possible rebellions of various natures, and all the cows, bugs, and sunburns the South Carolina outdoors has to offer.

    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.

    Prequel piece to Cheaters Never Prosper, which you don't have to read first. No matter how much time goes by between updates, I promise you that I have not abandoned this piece.

    Summary

    “His Maid” but reversed. Hamilton is a slave, bought by John Laurens.

    This is totally separate from the other books in this series, it’s just a “What if?” one-shot honestly. However, the traumatic experiences that shaped who they were in the original book remains mostly the same.

    Welcome to my personal hell.
