things that fuck me right up about hamilton

• in Aaron Burr, Sir when Burr says “fools who run their mouths off wind up dead” and then Laurens comes in
• “don’t call me son”
• literally all of History Has It’s Eyes On You and Dear Theodosia
• “my name is Phillip, I am a poet”
• in One Last Time when Washington is singing and Hamilton is talking
• “i couldn’t seem to die”
• in The Reynolds Pamphlet when you start hearing the beginning of Burn
• all of Burn but especially when she goes “you, you, you, you” and you can hear the hurt
• if you’ve ever watched the musical, the scream Eliza lets out after Phillip dies
• the “shh, i know, i know” s
• “if i could spare his life, if i could trade his life for mine, he’d be standing here right now, and you would smile, and that would be enough.”
• the “it’s quiet uptowns” during The Election Of 1800"
• “best of wives and best of women”
• “now i’m the villain in your history.”
• hamilton’s speech before he dies, and when he screams “wait!”
• all of Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story.
• “oh, can i show you what im proudest of?”
• the fact that Eliza outlived all of her siblings except for the youngest, who was 24 years younger than her.

I’d like to take this time to remember my boy Lin-Manuel Miranda.

He’s not dead, I just love remembering him.

Luckily for him, a new young DC has joined the force who has made it his mission to keep Arthur safe.

phillip hamilton things, for people who haven't or can't see the show.

-during his rap in take a break, he starts out nervous and then kid gets WAY IN TO IT, bending his knees and flexing his arms and yelling. alex hugs him and looks so proud and phillip is so pleased with himself. it’s precious.

-during reynolds pamphlet, jefferson, madison, and burr take him up front, surround him, and show him the paper. they point and say “at his own house? at his own house? damn.” out loud to him and oh my god his face, he’s shattered. you can physically see his father get taken down a peg in his eyes. I can’t even describe it. it was heartbreaking.

- I always pictured his argument with george eaker happening up close, like he pushed past a bunch of people and was up his face. but no, eaker is up on the balcony and in true hamilton fashion, phillip is making a scene and shouting at him from below. the actors in the “play” even stop to watch, and you’re like damn this really is alex’s son.

-when he’s telling his dad about the duel, alex is standing with his arms folded (and using his “dad” voice) and phillip looks so sheepish but also defiant and it reminds me so much of “meet me inside.”

-“stay alive reprise.” tore. my. heart. out. which I knew it would but jesus. no mercy. I was full on sobbing. (eliza screams at the end of it and I can’t even describe that. it’s so horrible and your breath catches in your throat and she sounds so worn down and destroyed. she’s held it together throughout all the shit alex put her through but in that moment it all comes crashing down and you can hear so much pain. It’s heartbreaking and beautiful. the acting is amazing.)
