Lams fluff pretty please for my birthday tomorrow?
Yes of course! Sorry if this is late! Happy Birthday!
Moonlight shone in, stars twinkling silently by her side, winking and shining inside through the curtains. John sighed, turning on his right, feeling the cold side of the bed. Rubbing his eyes, he sat up, holding the blanket closer to his chest. Checking the time, he rubbed his eyes.
With a groan he threw his legs out, stepping forward out of his room. Silently padding down the hall he could hear the tip tapping of the keyboard. He silently cursed to himself for tiredly believing Alex when he said he’d be done by midnight.
Midnight his ass.
“Alex?” An tired ‘hmm’ was his only response as he turned into the office, seeing a shaking Alex facing his keyboard, hair pulled back into a bu, glasses sat on his nose.
“Alex baby it’s two thirty in the morning.”
“John it’s only - “His eyes widened when he checked the clock, he could have sworn it was eleven five minutes ago.
“Alex you’ve been writing for hours. You’re ahead of schedule, come back to sleep.”
“I need to finish this John…”
He stepped forward, placing his arms around the shorter man’s shoulder and kissed the top of his head. Alex’s eyes fluttered shut as he leaned back into the warmth, the shaking lessening.
“You can finish it when you’ve slept for more than five hours baby…” He kissed the top of his head, slowly taking the hair tie out and running his fingers through his hair.
“Mmmm…John I have to finish.” His whine was needy and tired, eyes barely open at this point. “Baby come on…” His kisses began running down the back of his neck, lingering a bit more as Alex melted, softer under his touch.
“Alexander come back to sleep…” John sung teasingly, making up a tune as his fingers trailed down his arms. “It’s so dark outside…”
“I know…” Alex muttered, eyes fully shut, words barely sounding like English, words begining to come out in a mix of languages. “Necesito…gotta finish mon essai…”
“You’ll finish it tomorrow baby girl…you’ll beat Jefferson and Madison.”
Alex practically purred at the pet name, smiling cheesily, “Mmmhmm…”
Grabbing by the arms, John helped him stand from the chair, picking him up, legs wrapped around his waist, face buried in John’s neck. He winced a bit at the glasses digging into his skin but ignored it, saving his work before making his way up the hall.
“Why do you write like you’re running out of time?” He sung, laying Alex down on the bed, taking his glasses off and putting them on the bedside table, “Now back in bed…”
“Hmmm, te amo…love you Johnny.”
John laughed at the pet name, crawling onto his side, pulling Alex to his chest, peppering his faces with kisses. “Love you Alexander. Best of husbands, best of men.”

- Historically and in the play, Philip died at the age of 19. He lived through 19 songs in the play (Dear Theodosia through Stay Alive [Reprise])
- In his duel with George Eacker, Philip is shot on the count of seven, which is coincidentally the number he changed the melody on during his piano lessons
- “Mom, I’m so sorry for forgetting what you taught me” - perhaps this is a reference to his piano lessons when he was younger. Eliza taught him to count. Philip believes he miscounted, he believes that it was his fault he was shot on what he thought was the count of seven.
- Hamilton died at the age of 47. Including the Laurens Interlude, there are 47 songs in the musical.
- The ensemble member who plays Philip Schuyler, who gives Hamilton his blessing to marry Eliza, also plays James Reynolds, who blackmails Hamilton for sleeping with his wife, Maria.
- The “I know my sister like I know my own mind” line is sung twice by Angelica, once in Satisfied and once in The Reynolds Pamphlet, both with very seperate connotations.
- Hamilton is the first to introduce more intricate, polysyllabic raps (My Shot) as opposed to the simple beats used by Laurens, Mulligan, and Lafayette, showing his intellectual ability and innovation.
- “Fools who run their mouths off wind up dead” is directly followed by Laurens introducing himself.
- Jefferson sings in a jazzy tune because he is quite literally a generation older, in both his ideals and age.
- Lafayette’s increasing grasp on the English language is shown when comparing his verses in Aaron Burr, Sir and Guns and Ships.
- Angelica is the first to sing “look around, look around, at how lucky we are to be alive right now”, which Eliza continues to use throughout her life.
- Angelica raps at Hamilton’s speed because she is his intellectual equal. Eliza beatboxes because she supports him.
- “When my prayers to God were met with indifference, I picked up a pen, I wrote my own deliverence”/ “I take the children to church on Sunday, I sign of the cross at the door, and I pray. That never used to happen before”. Philip’s death drove Hamilton to religion, giving him something to rely on other than his words for the first time.
- Eliza doesn’t rap because she is quite literally given the most time, she lives to be 97.
- Not only did Eliza establish the orphanage, she also helped to establish the first school in Washington Heights. Lin could have included the words “in Washington Heights” as a reference to his other musical, but decided against it.
<b>Phillip:</b> P-P...<p/><b>Alex:</b> Eliza! Eliza! He's gonna say papa!<p/><b>Eliza:</b> Come on baby!<p/><b>Phillip:</b> P-Pa...<p/><b>Alex:</b> C'mon son!<p/><b>Phillip:</b> PAY YOUR FUCKING TAXES<p/><b>Eliza:</b> ...<p/><b>Alex:</b> ...<p/><b>Alex:</b> My son!<p/><b>Eliza:</b> ALEXANDER<p/></p>
