A/N: In celebration of #Reneeappreciation
week. My first Angelica/Thomas fic! I want to do another that I hope I can crank
out later today. But in the meantime,
enjoy! Rated T for language (as the
entire play is).
For this piece, I imagine that Angelica and John Baker (if you want to still acknowledge him) have had a divorce. So she’s reeling from that, and has to come home and deal with what Ham has done to her sister because of Jefferson (just to add to the angst).
So, there ya go!
“MY GOD! You are the most ridiculously frustrating,
ego-centric, high-maintenance, obnoxious, pretentious man I’ve had the
honorable DISPLEASURE of meeting in my ENTIRE life!”
love you too, princess,” Jefferson said, with a smirk. He had his legs propped up on his desk,
crossed at the ankles. He was leaning
back in his spinning, rolling chair with his elbow on one of the arm rests and
his chin lightly propped on the back of his hand. Angelica stood in front of his desk,
clenching her fists at her sides in fury, and bit back a low growl.
“Ugh! You’re infuriatingly impossible! No one told you to…to goad Hamilton
his political career?”
HIS FAMILY!” she shouted, tears welling up.
Jefferson’s own eyes bucked wide.
He swung his legs down from his desk and sat
you…you knew! You knew he wouldn’t back
down from a threat and you exacerbated the situation! Did you even THINK about the
repercussions?! Of course you didn’t;
you never think about anyone but yourself!” she said, knocking some papers off
his desk. “Well if you wanted to rip
apart a loving family…MY family, then CONGRATULATIONS! You succeeded! I hope you’re proud of yourself!” She turned
and immediately made her way for the door when he stood up and made his way in
front of her, grabbing her by the arms.
Hey-hey-hey, hold on! Now that’s not
fair, Ange! Hey! Now listen, no one. Told.
Hamilton, to break his loyalty to your sister. Okay?”
shut the hell up, Jefferson,” she struggled against his hold. “I’m not an
idiot! I already chewed Hamilton out for
breaking my sister’s heart, but infidelity is not a foreign concept in this day
and age. What they DIDN’T need is for
their names to be dragged through the mud and to be scorned by society BECAUSE
of the scandal. It just inflamed everything, and THAT I blame solely on you!
You set everything in motion!”
now hang on! We didn’t know about the
affair, alright?! We just suspected pecuniary
speculation. HE told us about the affair of his own free will. HE was the one who
was so insecure that he felt the need to defend himself by exposing everything. We let it all go WAY before he did that! C’mon, do you really think I’d do anything to hurt you
doesn’t make it fucking better, Thomas!
You’ve been out to ruin his credibility since day one and you succeeded FAR
beyond your expectations! That’s why
you’ve been so smug for weeks! You didn’t
even CARE about what the speculation charge would do to his family, to MY
SISTER! MY NIECES AND NEPHEWS! And when you found out that the charge was
much WORSE, OH-HO-BOY did you rub salt in the wound! You basked in his demise! You’re a fucking asshole, and you-you’re no
better than he is!” she cried smacking his arms away.
was an ache in his chest at seeing the seething despair overtaking her. Hot tears flowing freely down her face, teeth
clenched, a vein clearly visible on her forehead, arms folded tightly against
her chest. She was crumbling before
him….he couldn’t take it.
me alone…I must tend to my sister,” she tried to move past him. It had been her in duties to try to pick up
the fragile pieces of her dear Eliza’s heart while trying, and failing, to keep
her own from shattering. But Jefferson
wrapped his arms around her from behind.
let GO of me, Jefferson! Don’t TOUCH me!”
“NO! Listen, Y-you’re right…okay? I’m an idiot.
I’m a moronic idiot and I only think about myself. …But…but that doesn’t
mean I don’t care about you.” His voice
was breathless, as if he was trying to grasp onto…something…anything. There was a pause. He turned her around again and softly pressed
her head to his chest, wrapping his other arm around her waist. She was stiff in his arms and pushed against
mean the world to me, Ange. I’d…never intentionally
hurt you, or your family. You…have to
know that, right?!” he asked. After
about a minute, he leaned back a bit and cupped her face in his palm, thumb
gently wiping away her tears. Her hands
rested lightly against his chest, drained from her attempts to push him away.
her voice was wound tight. He kissed her
sorry. I’m so sorry. This…it shouldn’t have gone this far. We just…” he sighed, “the Federalist Party
has been so…obstinate lately because of Hamilton and we haven’t been able to
get anything done. We couldn’t take it
anymore; the administration was on the verge of imploding,” he said. She frowned,
I…” he sighed and tightened his grip around her. “Politics…are…a necessary evil…” he
said. There was a beat before he heard the
tiniest of giggles escape her and she shook a bit in his arms, trying to stifle
her laughter. She buried her face in his
shirt and a small smile played at his lips.
it, Thomas. That’s not the quote and you
you would know. I wouldn’t expect anyone
who didn’t avidly dabble in Paine’s work to get it. …It’s one of the things I love most about
you,” he said.
can be empty, Jefferson.” she said. There
was a pause and he sighed, knowing she meant it in more ways than one—not only
in him showing his genuine feelings for her, but also in his supposed support
for what she stood for, what she believed in.
it sounds to me more like men just letting their petty pride and ambitions get
in the way of diplomacy.”
“…Heh. I-I don’t know…if the world is yet ready for
the powerful minds of women like you,” he said.
And she frowned at the audacity of him to allude to another topic he’d
been adamantly avoiding for months now.
doesn’t mean I won’t stop fighting for your voice, Ange. Yours and your sisters,” he said, meaning her sisterhood,
not just her family. He placed his hand on the back of her head again, tucking her smaller figure just
under his chin.
all, your opinion is the one I hold in the highest regard; and the only one I
really care about.” She tsked,
“….You’re still an asshole.”
maybe you’re not..entirely hopeless…” she said, absently fiddling with the ruffles at his neck. “I’m still furious with you.”
Sooo I just watched 7x10 (I couldn’t see it live bc of our connection…. ugh) and I have some thoughts….
-first of all: Melissa McfuckingBride oh my god. When she opened the door and saw Daryl… She deserves so much more credit for her acting than she gets..
-I am not going to lie; the episode was a bit underwhelming for me. We were promised plenty of Caryl time, and it turned out to be what, 5 minutes? Don’t get me wrong, what we got was amazing, but to me, it just feels like Gimple is afraid to make caryl happen or something? He probably thinks if he gives just enough ambigious Caryl per season, he will keep us content while also keeping the haters hooked. All while patting himself on the back for being such a genius.
-Enough negativity; Carol’s ‘shut up’ was the cutest I have ever heard?? Everything, the sobbing the relief the adorable smile… again so well acted by melissa.
-Carzekiel is ??? I am starting to believe the people shipping this are just plain trolls
-Daryl threathening Richard was very well done, and also not that ambigious! When I read the spoilers, I thought this was going to play out very lowkey, but they actually showed his reaction and stuff… nice
-These couple of caryl minutes pretty much ruined me.. i need a life
-What did norman say on TTD? Everyone seems to be angry at him. You know what, I don’t even want to know, his comments are always based on nothing anyway.
So that was it… now i can go back to thinking about if we will get something caryl on 7x16
