psychic: *reads my mind*

me: After the war I went back to New York
A-After the war I went back to New York
I finished up my studies and I practiced law
I practiced law, Burr worked next door
Even though we started at the very same time
Alexander Hamilton began to climb
How to account for his rise to the top?
Man, the man is
Non-stop
Gentlemen of the jury, I’m curious, bear with me
Are you aware that we’re making hist'ry?
This is the first murder trial of our brand-new nation
The liberty behind
Deliberation (Non-stop)
I intend to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt
With my assistant counsel
Co-counsel
Hamilton, sit down
Our client Levi Weeks is innocent
Call your first witness
That’s all you had to say
Okay
One more thing
Why do you assume you’re the smartest in the room?
Why do you assume you’re the smartest in the room?
Why do you assume you’re the smartest in the room?
Soon that attitude may be your doom (aww)
Why do you write like you’re running out of time?
Write day and night like you’re running out of time?
Ev'ry day you fight, like you’re running out of time
Keep on fighting
In the meantime
Non-stop
Corruption’s such an old song that we can sing along in harmony
And nowhere is it stronger than in Albany
This colony’s economy’s increasingly stalling and
Honestly, that’s why public service
Seems to be calling me (he’s just non-stop)
I practiced the law, I practic'ly perfected it
I’ve seen injustice in the world and I’ve corrected it
Now for a strong central democracy
If not, then I’ll be Socrates
Throwing verbal rocks
At these mediocrities (aww)
Hamilton, at the constitutional convention
I was chosen for the constitutional convention
There as a New York junior delegate
Now what I’m going to say may sound indelicate (aww)
Goes and proposes his own form of government (what?)
His own plan for a new form of government (what?)
Talks for six hours
The convention is listless
Bright young man
Yo, who the f is this?
Why do you always say what you believe?
Why do you always say what you believe?
Ev'ry proclamation guarantees free ammunition for your enemies
Why do you write like it’s
Going out of style?
Write day and night like it’s
Going out of style?
Ev'ry day you fight like it’s
Going out of style
Do what you do
Alexander?
Aaron Burr, sir
It’s the middle of the night
Can we confer, sir?
Is this a legal matter?
Yes, and it’s important to me
What do you need?
Burr, you’re a better lawyer than me
Okay
I know I talk too much, I’m abrasive
You’re incredible in court
You’re succinct, persuasive
My client needs a strong defense
You’re the solution
Who’s your client?
The new U.S. Constitution?
No
Hear me out
No way
A series of essays, anonymously published
Defending the document to the public
No one will read it
I disagree
And if it fails?
Burr, that’s why we need it
The constitution’s a mess
So it needs amendments
It’s full of contradictions
So is independence
We have to start somewhere
No
No way
You’re making a mistake
Good night
Hey
What are you waiting for?
What do you stall for? (what?)
We won the war
What was it all for?
Do you support this constitution?
Of course
Then defend it
And what if you’re backing the wrong horse?
Burr, we studied and we fought and we killed
For the notion of a nation we now get to build
For once in your life, take a stand with pride
I don’t understand how you stand to the side
I’ll keep all my plans
Close to my chest (wait for it, wait for it, wait)
I’ll wait here and see
Which way the wind
Will blow
I’m taking my time
Watching the
Afterbirth of a nation
Watching the tension grow
I am sailing off to London
I’m accompanied by someone
Who always pays
I have found a wealthy husband who will keep
Me in comfort for all my days
He is not a lot of fun, but there’s no one who
Can match you for turn of phrase
My Alexander
Angelica
Don’t forget to write
Look at where you are
Look at where you started
The fact that you’re alive is a miracle
Just stay alive, that would be enough
And if your wife could share a fraction of your time
If I could grant you peace of mind
Would that be enough?
Alexander joins forces with James Madison and John Jay to write a series of essays
Defending the new United States constitution
Entitled The Federalist papers
The plan was to write a total of twenty-five essays
The work divided evenly among the three men
In the end, they wrote eighty-five essays, in the span of six months
John Jay got sick after writing five
James Madison wrote twenty-nine
Hamilton wrote the other fifty-one
How do you write like you’re
Running out of time?
Write day and night like you’re
Running out of time?
Ev'ry day you fight
Like you’re
Running out of time
Like you’re
Running out of time
Are you
Running out of time?
How do you write like tomorrow won’t arrive?
How do you write like you need it to survive?
How do you write ev'ry second you’re alive?
Ev'ry second you’re alive? Ev'ry second you’re alive?
They are asking me to lead
I am doing the best I can
To get the people that I need
I’m asking you to be my right hand man
Treasury or State?
I know it’s a lot to ask
Treasury or State?
To leave behind the world you know
Sir, do you want me to run the Treasury or State department?
Treasury
Let’s go
Alexander
I have to leave
Alexander
Look around, look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now
Helpless
They are asking me to lead
Look around, isn’t this enough?
He will never be satisfied
He will never be satisfied
Satisfied
Satisfied
He will never be satisfied
Satisfied
Satisfied
History has its eyes on you
I am not throwin’ away my shot
I am not throwin’ away my shot
I am
Alexander Hamilton
I am not throwin’ away my shot

“Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience - or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.” (Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility)


Call it Patience, Call it Hope - A Bellarke Regency AU

With both parents passed away and a younger sister to support, Bellamy Blake may not have drawn the easiest lot in life. But he had a plan: Rise through the ranks of the Royal Navy, find a good husband for his sister, make Lieutenant or maybe even Captain, and keep sailing and fighting until he died at sea. What he had not planned for was suddenly inheriting a title, complete with lands and fortune.


Instead of simply trying to stay alive long enough to get Octavia settled comfortably, now he had to figure out how to run an estate, bring his sister out into society while protecting her from rakes and fortune hunters, and remember his manners around one stubborn, haughty, irresistible Lady Clarke Griffin, Daughter of the Earl of Arkton – and very soon the bane of his existence.

It is Asexual Awareness Week

Here are some tips for dealing with asexuals safely.

1) Be alert! See the asexuals before they see you. Asexuals are commonly invisible, so this can be challenging. The National Park Service recommends heat-vision goggles.

2) Avoid hiking at dawn, dusk, or twilight. Asexuals are most active at these hours on the physical plane. Grey aces and demis are especially active on moonless nights.

3) Make noises to alert asexuals to your presence. A startled asexual is a particularly likely to attack.

4) If an asexual charges you, stand your ground. Asexuals commonly break off the charge or veer away. This is called a “bluff charge.” Running will trigger a chase response.

5) Do not attempt to play dead. This is a useful tactic for escaping bisexuals, not asexuals, who may continue to maul you even if they think you are dead.

6) Distract the asexual by appealing to their interests. Asexuals are diverse and their interests vary wildly, but they often tend towards fandoms such as Sherlock and Doctor Who, queer studies and feminism, and the Internet. Try memes.

7) Feed the asexual food so that they consider you an ally. Although asexuals in popular culture are described as only eating cake, they are actually omnivorous and their diets are similar to those of their closest evolutionary relatives, the pansexuals.

Please share to keep everyone safe! Have a nice week and practice safe habits when hiking outdoors! Please visit the National Park Service’s website for more information.
