okay so I tried to do a “Spartacus characters as Hamilton characters” post and it doesn’t quite work, partly because I’m trying to stick to characters played by actors of color (so no Gannicus-as-Lafayette even tho lbr, yes), and partly because even when the characters fit, the ships don’t, exactly, but HERE’S WHAT I’VE GOT:

Alexander Hamilton: NASIR. “I’m just like my country, I’m young, scrappy, and hungry, and I’m not throwing away my shot!”

Aaron Burr: Naevia. “Life doesn’t discriminate between the sinners and the saints, it takes and it takes and it takes, And if there’s a reason I’m still alive when so many have died, then I’m willing to wait for it.”

Angelica Schuyler: Melitta. “Nice going, Angelica, he was right, you will never be satisfied.”

George Washington: Oenomaus. “HERE COMES THE GENERAL.”

Elizabeth Schuyler: Pietros. “I saved every letter you wrote me. From the moment I read them I knew you were mine. You said you were mine. I thought you were mine.”

Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson: Castus. “I came from afar just to say bon soir, tell the king casse-toi, who’s the best? c’est moi.”/“What’d I miss?”

John Laurens/Philip Hamilton: Mira. “We will never be truly free until those in bondage have the same rights as you and me. You and I, do or die.”/“I don’t mean to brag, but dag I amaze and astonish.”

Hercules Mulligan/James Madison: Crixus. “I need no introduction, when you knock me down I get the fuck back up again.”/[“My friend, James Madison, red in the face…”]

King George: Batiatus. “You’re my favorite subject. My sweet, submissive subject. My loyal, royal subject…”

and that’s all I got. I couldn’t find a role for Barca (sadface) because it was between him and Crixus as Hercules Mulligan and it seemed wrong to not have Crixus in there. We also don’t have another woman of color to fill the Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds role, although if I were to pick from anyone in the Spartacus cast, I think I would choose Chadara.

BUT STILL, I AM HUGELY IN FAVOR OF THIS CROSSOVER. (@ceilinglemons @antiquecompass)
