so in the vampire verse does the musical still exist? if it does how is it different? i've reread all of them like 40 times and they're so good honestly you're my fave

Aw thank you! Let’s say the musical exists because I’ve always thought that Washington would be so simultaneously flattered by the attention and praise and offended by the inaccuracies. It also seems like something Lafayette would love wholeheartedly because of how much he enjoyed the bigger, better, more amazing version of a story. 

It would definitely need to be different, but not super, super different. Like Hamilton and Burr’s arc could remain the same (Hamilton, eternally young, would need to eventually be given a way to “die” in the minds of the public). Eliza and Angelica could both still play a part in his story, but it would need to be different. Alex can never have children, and I feel like he would think it would prevent Eliza from having the large family I think she wanted, and I think he would know that a life of killing is just not suited to her. (Angelica though…)

Washington’s and Lafayette’s history would probably be the most altered. Lafayette would still be French, but if he claimed to have a proper nobility, the sort he had in real history, Versailles would catch him out as a “fraud” (even though he truly is a Marquis). So he must have to be noble in the way Baron von Steuben is, i.e., not actually at all, but people know he enjoys the title, so they indulge him because they like him so much. 

Washington’s whole life would need to be changed, that’s something I’m struggling with now. It’s a big reason why I haven’t yet taken them to the events of the Revolution. Laurens actually history would also be pretty effected by the lack of a rich father engaged in the politics of the revolution, but maybe for the musical that doesn’t matter so much, but things would have to change…

But Hamilton could still claim to come from Nevis, orphaned from a family no one cares about. 

As for the others Tallmadge could perhaps, create a similar-ish backstory to real life, sans a family. I think he could even go to Yale for a few years before the war. Benedict Arnold, I think, could also end up with a story similar enough to his actual history. And where Ben is glad not to be in the musical, Arnold is deeply offended.

It’s getting colder, and I found myself really wanting to paint Lyra, Pan and Iorek. There’s two different versions because I couldn’t decide, + quick watercolour sketches : >

Was supposed to finish this PhichiYuu doodle for tonight but the posing was not cooperating, and I kept changing it and it got more and more and MORE provocative…>.>;

Will try to finish this in time for Fri/Sat night post, and will also put up an update for Inferno around then. Art updates have been slow bc I’ve been prioritizing Inferno, should be ready to post in a week or two ^v^)b
