There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less. But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters, might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.
But why aren’t -friend- “ships” a thing? Like– I ship you two so hard in a totally platonic way and I just want to see you two run around on epic adventures and take over the world together–no? Just me?
Imagine an au where Ben falls for Jay instead by accident.
At first they think it’s worked on Mal until Did I Mention and he starts to spell Jay’s name instead. Mal is pissed off, Carlos is shitting one, Jay is terrified but weirdly complimented, and Evie is just loving it.
They decide just to try and make it work and all the scenes with Mal and Ben, Jay replaces Mal.
Imagine Jay singing If Only.
Carlos is super pissed bc Jaylos 5ever.
I’m having too much fun with this.
