So I went through the Leeburr tag and now I ship it (damn it). I completely blame and thank @the-great-gay-jatsby for this idea so…
• Lee is a cuddler.
• Burr isn’t. But he’ll make an exception for Lee.
• Lee’s favorite time to cuddle is during their traditional Friday movie night. It’s just him, his boyfriend, and whatever cheesy movie they decide to rent.
• It’s almost always Eat Pray Love. Though he’ll never admit it, Lee loves that movie.
• Burr knows how much Lee loves the meaning behind the movie, so he insists that they watch it constantly.
• Aaron refuses to call him “Charles” unless he really wants something.
- Ex: “No Aaron we are not taking in a cat” “But Chaaaaaarles…look at her!” “… fine. Only because she’s cute!”
• They adopt the cat. She’s a fat, fluffy, tabby cat who hates physical exercise almost as much as she hates mornings.
• Lee. Loves. That. Cat.
• You will never see Lee without that cat in his arms or worrying about where the cat is.
• Burr has the suspicion that Lee loves the cat more than he loves him. Which may or may not be true.
• Lee’s worked in the office for a while, but before that, he was a veteran. He served two terms in Afghanistan before coming home.
• He has nightmares about all the trauma he went through and all the people he couldn’t save.
•It takes Burr a while to figure it out, but immediately leaps into Protective Boyfriend Mode the first time Lee wakes up sobbing and screaming different names.
• Burr quietly asks Lee why he didn’t tell him sooner while he holds him, slowly rocking them both.
• Lee starts sobbing and Burr holds him, Lee’s head buried into Aaron’s chest.
• “I d-didn’t want you to l-leave me, Aaron. I’m s-so scared of being alone. I’ve l-lost so many people…Please don’t l-leave me too. ”
• Aaron softly kisses the top of Lee’s head. “You’re not going to lose me, Charles. I promise you I’m not leaving.”
•Lee quietly cries himself to sleep in his amazing boyfriend’s arms, and Aaron never once judges him.
•Aaron is right there next to him on the 4th of July, holding his hand whenever a firework goes off. He manages to get through the day and he couldn’t be happier about it.
• Lee is the one to propose to Aaron.
• Its small and relatively quiet, just like the couple.
• Lee uses his day off to cook a huge, romantic dinner for Aaron when he gets home. When Aaron gets home, Lee guides Aaron to the dining table, which has so much good food on it. Aaron gets so touched, he doesn’t know how to thank Lee. Lee just laughs nervously, saying “Don’t thank me just yet, darling. ” After dinner, Lee takes Aaron out onto the fire escape and they just sit out there for a while, relishing each other’s presence. Lee decides to bring out the ring right there, no kneeing, no sappy speech. Just a straightforward Will You Marry Me?
• Of course, Aaron says yes, and that’s the story of how Lee got laid that night. Did I mention that they’re both really kinky? They don’t seem like that couple, but they are. Like REALLY kinky. Just wanted to drop that small fact in, sorry.
• They get married. It’s a small ceremony in June at Jefferson’s ranch Monticello. Everyone at the office attends. George officiated the wedding, Alexander Hamilton was Burr’s best man, while John Laurens made a speech which made Lee tear up.
• They are marriage goals. Legit marriage goals.
• Lee, being the southern cutie he is, calls Burr things like “Darling” “Dollface” “Honey” with a southern drawl. Burr secretly loves it.
• They go to every Pride Parade they can. Why wouldn’t they? They’re an interracial gay couple in New York for God’s sake.
• Despite the fact that they argue over every little thing, Lee and Burr are best friends with Laurens and Hamilton.
• People are constantly hitting on one of them, to the point that they’re both very jealous.
• One of Lee’s favorite memory of jealous Aaron is when a woman stopped them in the middle of the street to flirt with Lee. Before Lee could quietly tell her he was married, Burr slipped his hand into Lee’s and said, “His gay ass is married to me, keep walking” before dragging Lee away, who was laughing hysterically. Lee never lets Burr forget about it.
• They decide to adopt a selectively mute girl named Theodosia. She’s 14 year old and the sweetest person on earth.
• Both Burr and Lee learn ASL to communicate with Theo.
• Lee is very protective of his daughter, and Aaron is having to constantly remind him she’s a human being with rights.
• You can imagine how they both reacted when Alexander and Lauren’s son Phillip knocked on their door for permission to take Theodosia to the school dance.
• After sitting the boy down for a friendly chat, they give their permission for Theo to go to the dance with Phillip.
• The day of the dance, Pip shows up promptly at 7 in a suit and tie , smiling from ear to ear. Aaron and Lee decide to give him the “If you hurt my daughter, I will make your life a living hell” speech. Needless to say, Pip got the point VERY quickly.
• All three of them were shocked when Theo came out of her room wearing a simple dark red dress and ballet flats. Phillip was the first to react, smiling even wider then before and saying , “Theo, you look beautiful” which got the biggest smile out of Theodosia.
• Both men started crying when Theo came over to hug and spoke to them for the very first time.
• “Don’t worry Dads…I’ll be fine,” in a whispery tone.
• Pip and Theo leave, holding hands and smiling at each other.
• The second they leave, Lee calls Hamilton to gossip about their children. Burr invites Hamilton and Laurens over for a few drinks, and that’s how you get 4 grown men crying their asses off while watching Marley and Me.
• All in all, Charles Lee and Aaron Burr are just a happy couple with a beautiful daughter and a really fat cat.
((Feel free to add on!! Actually, PLEASE add on, I need more Leeburr Headcannons in my life))
I’m constantly comparing pictures of Hamilton and historical accounts because it doesn’t match up to me for some reason. Hamilton was very feminine in appearance and his mannerisms as well, but when you see portraits it’s just kinda???? Who the fuck is that, the man was a ginger.
It was near the end of daycare, Alex was fighting with Thomas (as usual) and Mr. Washington was trying in vain to stop them. Vain was a word Alex taught Hercules, it sounded really important. Alex said that there were many ways to use the word “vain” but his favorite way is when you try really hard to do something but you fail. In fact, Alex and Hercules used it when writing the spy oath.
Today was a proud day for Hercules. Today was the day Peggy gra-ju-ated from spy training. He loved training Peggy, she was like a little spy sister to him, and she was going out into the real world to spy on strangers and make the world a better place. Today she was receiving her first o-ffi-shi-al a-sign -ment. Peggy was jumping up and down with excitement, the cer-ee-mo-ny was about to begin! Everybody gathered around to watch. Even Alex and T.jeff stopped fighting! That showed how much of a big deal this was. Mr. Washington breathed a sigh of relief. Then again Peggy was also jumping up and down with nervousness. Spy’s had a big re-spons-a-bil-i-ty. They needed to use the in-for-ma-shun they found to solve problems. But if you let the wrong person hear even a little of the in-for-ma-shun you found, it can create problems even bigger than the first. Peggy learned that the hard way. She cringed at the memory of when she accidently let Samuel know that Alex was going to prank Gorge. But that was then she was ready now.
