  • THE END

Reasons John Adams in 1776 is essentially the same character as Alexander Hamilton in Hamilton

1. They’re both short-tempered, loud-mouthed Federalist cuties

2. whose main way of dealing with problems is by yelling at them

3. they are both very smol but also 177.6% willing to fight you 

4. seriously they will fight you

5. they both enjoy dissing Jefferson via song and dance

6. …and throwing shade on new jersey

7. People would gladly pay good money to make them be quiet for five minutes

8. no but seriously

9. they’re both Very Loud and Very Done

10. but at the end of the day they’re both just super passionate about creating a country they can be proud of, and if that means also having zero chill, well…

sit down john but every “john” is piddle twiddle and resolve but each “resolve” is the lees of old virginia but each “lee” is but mr adams but each “mr adams” is yours yours yours but each “yours” is he plays the violin but each “hiii-ii” is cool cool considerate men but each “cool” is momma look sharp but each “momma” is the egg but every “chirp” is molasses to rum but every “slave” is anybody there but each “anybody” goes back to sit down john

i cant tell if im excited or scared of the hamilton fandom becoming historians if they chose to follow such an education/career path because it was bad enough when in 2007 livejournal’s 1776 musical fandom was screaming about jedams (i mean so was i) and some of the hamilton stuff ive seen is way worse so……..please recall these people were real and understand the difference between fact and fictionalized romanticized characters.
