…so yeah I’m gonna be the weirdo who brings a Kingdom Hearts crossover into the Hamilton fandom.

The Schuyler Sisters would be pretty badass Keyblade Masters though, lets be real.

and I love how I tried to keep some elements of Angelica and Eliza’s normal clothes in their KH outfits, but Peggy’s just like “nah”

Clexa Fan Art Master List (Part 2)


Seeing as I’ve been dealing with a a lot of reposters these days. I’ve decided to make a master list of the Clexa art I’ve created. This will consist of multiple posts as Tumblr only allows 10 per photoset and a text post is too slow loading and I have over 20 pieces

This is purely for reference so I can point people in the right direction.


3 Parents in a Tub

a/n: the sudden influx of elams I couldn’t resist, I hope this small drabble works. HAPPY MOTHER’s DAY. THIS ONE ARE FOR THOSE ASKS, YA’LL ARE GREAT.
summary: Thomas and Angelica show off their new home to their friends with a little house warming party. Things go south when Elams are stuck in the bathroom for a long period of time. 
w/c: 2102
warning: Borth

“And Thomas and I just redid the bathroom upstairs.” Angelica beamed while Thomas also added on.

“Best bathtub we could afford and I can’t wait to break it in.” He rose his glass to that, “thanks for coming over…most of you.” Thomas’s eyes cut through the crowd of happy faces who were gathered to celebrate Angelica and Thomas’s first home together. A house warming filled with warm hearted intentions…minus the icy glare Thomas gave Alexander who was standing in the far corner of the room with a wine glass shaking in his hand.

 “Tch.” He angrily sipped the overly expensive wine, feel a small pat on his arm from his pregnant, beautiful wife. “I’m fine, Thomas is just a dickhead like usual.”

“What else is new?” John chuckled; he wasn’t any fonder of Thomas than Alexander was. He wasn’t fond of anyone that gave his husband any issues. “I still can’t believe Angelica is willing to live with him.” Alex gave John a long sigh in agreement. Neither could imagine a relationship with Thomas was ‘simple’.  

A small and light ‘ahem’ from the back of Eliza’s throats silenced both her very opinionated husbands. “Now…having your opinions is all well and good but this is my sister and she is happy.” Eliza placed a hand comfortably on her large, protruding belly. “She was happy for me when I decided to marry you two and last I checked two men are a lot more work than one.”

“Thomas is at least 4 men hiding in a pink suit.” John cackled a bit earning a swift wink from Alexander. His smile died down when he noticed his wife didn’t seem as amused as his husband. “But of course what’s important is that she is happy.”

 “For now” Alex smiled, “I mean, amen to that.” He changed his tune for the sake of his wife and her wry gaze. The party was very low key, soft jazz played in the background. Thomas hired a catering crew to serve small bites along with wine. This party was easily pricier than Alexander’s weddings to John and Eliza. Pricier than their baby shower for.. “Pip! Get your hands out of Peggy’s cleavage” Alex spotted from afar his two year old son face deep into his aunts chest. “Peggy don’t let him do that.” He mumbled walking over to her.

 Peggy giggled leaning up against her date for the evening, Lafayette keeping it within the circle, “oh why not? He wouldn’t be the first boy to do that.”

 “Because that’s messed up, Freud did not kid about kids having issues about…stuff…”

 “Did he also name the phases of development, dick and ass?” Lafayette couldn’t contain his laughter beside his date. Alex’s eyes narrowed a bit as he peeled his fluffy, freckled son off his aunt’s bosom. He whispered ‘you’ll thank me later’ to him and immediately welcomed him to John’s arms where Pip usually stayed the longest.

 “Baby!” Pip pointed at his mother from John’s arms. “Where baby?”

 Eliza smiled running her hand down the length of her stomach, “soon, Momma will go to the doctor and we’ll bring baby home very soon.” She was ecstatic Philip was excited both his future sister. The husbands were happy that they weren’t doing any more water births after Philip. It was too nerve wrecking and the clean up was…pretty horrible. “…we still haven’t decided on a name…”

 “Joana” “Alexandria” Both men offered names then glared at each other with a small smirk.

 “Oh you too…” Eliza giggled, and then felt the sound catch in her throat. She winced a bit, her fingers tense on the peak of her stomach as John cooed and babbled to their son, and Alex exchanged heated glares with the host of the home.  “I…have to use the bathroom” she muttered. 

“Oh should we get Ang—“
“Nono, I know where the bathroom is.” She smiled her face still a bit weak looking. “Thomas updated instagram 24/7 when they were remodeling the bathroom, I feel like I’ve already been here.” She giggled distracting her husbands with a small snide remark. Eliza disappeared up the stairs, waddling slowly, John and Alex watched with small looks.

“Checkin’ out your pregnant wife? Kinda weird.” A happy, deep voice graced the boys.

“Uncy!” Pip cheered immediately abandoning John’s arms for Hercules. Her gladly took the toddler and held him up high, towering over the two fathers.

“What can we do, she’s beautiful no matter what’s happening.” John beamed a bit, wrapping an arm around Alex’s shoulder.

 The party continued with more unusually small platters of food and expensive drinks. The music was mellow, really it wasn’t anything like John and Alex were use to or liked…but they made it work. John massaged small circles into Alex’s back, both flickering up at the staircase. “Its been a while…” Alex shifted his weight a bit, his eyes at the top of the stairs waiting for Eliza to come back down. “We should go check on her…” 

“Alex she’s pregnant she’s probably trying to take a dump”
“Or she’s having trouble getting up, or she’s slipped, or she’s going into labor…”

 “Ok panicky, let’s go knock and see what’s up.” John shook his head, determined to ease his tense husband they both bounded up the stairs to the master bathroom. Eliza would have taken the guest one but Angelica, knowing her sister was pregnant and sore, insisted on her using the better bathroom all day. They entered Thomas and Angelica’s shared bedroom and made a face at the hideously bright, velvet comforter and canopy set. “Tacky…” John muttered then made a beeline to the closed bathroom door.

Alex was the first to knock fast and hard, “Hon, are you ok?” There wasn’t much of a response for a while, a few soft groans then the door opened just a crack. Alex wasn’t any less put at ease, Eliza’s face was red and drenched in sweat, and she looked like she had need running while in the bathroom. “Eliza what’s wrong…”

“Let is in, Betsy.” John urged, she groaned again opening the door slowly and just enough for both men to enter and immediately close it after her.

“My water broke…” she muttered softly, both hands clutching the bottom of her stomach. “I’m getting…pains.”

“I fucking KNEW IT. Ok…ok I’ll call the hospital, we’ll get you in the car. Herc has Pip. We are doing this, ah…fuck…ok.” Alex began to ramble and started rummaging his pockets for his phone.

Eliza shot John a worried look then glanced back at Alex finding the strength between pains to speak up, “No I…please, this is Angelica’s day.” She hated taking the spotlight from her sister. She was the first to marry, the first to have a kid, not to mention her lifestyle wasn’t ‘normal’. Angelica barely had moments where it was about herself and Eliza could only imagine that must have been hard.

“Fuck, Eliza you can’t have a baby in the BATHROOM. Who cares, all this is a housewarming, call me when Thomas puts a ring on her finger and Angelica says I do to a lifetime of dealing the Purple man and his weird metrokinks” Alex snapped verbally, then snapped his head to the sound of John running a hot bath. “John what are you doing?”

“We’re having a water birth…Look, Hamhogs” he used one of the less affectionate names on Alexander as he motioned Eliza over. “She’s already going through labor and this big ass hole is 2 hours from the nearest hospital. I rather have a baby in a tub like we did before than in the car in the middle of traffic.” He snapped at the smaller man then turned to their wife. “…you ready?”

“Yes.” Eliza nodded stripping out of her dress and slowly with the help of John’s grip stepped into the tub.

“NO.” Alexander wailed and began fumbling with the phone still. “…fuck fine, let me at least tell Herc to keep Pip busy…” Alex grumbled texting Hercules that the trio was having a ‘dilemma’ in the bathroom. If he would be so kind to keep anyone from coming upstairs as well as keep Pip busy. Hercules responded promptly with a thumbs up emoji and Alex sighed. “Ok so we’re doing this.” He rolled up his dress shirt sleeves and knelt down.

They were mildly familiar with water birth, Philip was their first. It was at their home in a kiddie pool with Hercules instructing them every step in the way. John in the pool with their wife, Alex gripping her hand for dear life. And just like the first time, Alex and John were floored by Eliza’s composure. Even in the situation she was in she had a one track mind. There was a sense of complete unity between the three of them, it was enough to calm Alex’s raising worries about the birth as Eliza pushed. Her grip began to weaken and Alex began to shake with worry.

“…is there something wrong?”

“No the baby is crowning..”

“Oh so..” he made the mistake in peeking and then made a face. “A-Ah…”

“How many times are you going to make that mistake?” John chuckled, “alright now we start pushing in ten second lengths. Ok?”

“Are you sure?”

“Fairly sure, Alex.”

“Fairly isn’t exactly the kind of thing I want to hear when we’re a tub full of blood into birthing our daughter!”

“WILL YOU TOO SHUT THE FUCK UH—AHHH!” Eliza wailed and both men immediately nodded and went into a deep silence.

Downstairs the music was soft enough to allow the scream from above to reach them. Angelica immediately turned around and within the second of her turn noticed immediately who was missing and began connecting dots. “Where is Eliza?” She blinked handing her drink to Thomas, who grabbed it fluidly. He followed behind Angelica, who was slowly flanked by Peggy. “Where are the Hamiltons?” She asked again, everyone searching around.

Hercules stood by the stairs with Philip in his hands. “Uh…oh…” Philip covered his mouth as Herc tried retreating without being seen.

“Uh oh is right, lil man.” Herc turned and raced up the stairs while Angelica began scanning for Eliza and her husbands. He made it to the bathroom and opened it without thinking. “Guys, is everything all AHHH!!” He pulled Philip out and slammed the door shut, it was an image he was all too familiar with but not prepared to see, especially here and now. Now that scream was heard and from the stairs he could see Angelica’s intimating figure come up.


“Ange, great party” Mulligan leaned against the bathroom door with Philip in one arm. “I’m just…admiring the color scheme you have here.”

“Thank you.” Thomas beamed leaning over her shoulder. “I was going for an Elegant, purple Parisian—“ He was silenced by Angelica’s finger over his lips.

“My sister, her men, where are they?” Angelica crossed her arms for a second. “Are they in the bathroom?”

“Are they, I don’t know, I didn’t even know there was a bathroom here. Weird…”

“Baby soon!” Philip clapped happily, “Mama doin’ number” he held up two fingers and won a small smile from his aunt before she went back to frowning at Hercules.

“Hercules, move right this instant.” She growled, there was a stare off between them. Hercules losing every second he tried to keep her intensity. After a minute there was a knock from the otherside of the door. Hercules moved aside and allowed the door to open. There, John and Alex were covered in water, Eliza seemingly wet from the waist down with her dress back on. In one of Angelica’s thick towels they had a baby wrapped up, who was wide eye and already examining the world. “…you had a baby in the bathroom?”

“Angelica …I …I’m sorry I …”

“You had…my niece in my bathroom!!” Angelica jumped over to her and fluttered her hands over the newborn. “Oh she’s perfect, Thomas call the doctor, tell him make a house visit.” She ordered, “Hercules you were the midwife why don’t you help with clean up. Laf make a trip to the store and bring something nice for…for…” She blinked then looked at the three. “Well what are you going to call her?”

John and Alex changed small shrugs; the name had been up to Eliza to decide this time. Eyes were on the mom as Philip clung to Angelica’s leg trying to climb up his aunt to see the new baby. “I was thinking…naming her Angelica. She seems like an Angelica…”

9 Classic Movie Musicals That Could Benefit From Black Actor Remakes

The updated version of Annie starring critical darling Quvenzhané Wallis is a good start. But we can do better, Hollywood.

1. Grease

Long live Danny Zuko (John Travolta), but imagine a world where the leader of the T-Birds is played by Trey Songz? He’s got the singing chops, is starting to act, and can pull off the whole sexy bad boy you may not want to bring home to mom and dad vibe.

2. Hello Dolly!

Universal Pictures


Barbara Streisand nailed it as widower Dolly Levi in this 1969 musical, but can you picture Sanaa Lathan stepping into those fancy-schamancy shoes?

3. Jesus Christ Superstar

Universal Pictures

The film version of this musical earned two Golden Globe nominations and starred Carl Anderson and Ted Neeley as Judas and Jesus. But how about Jesse Williams taking on the role as the son of God?

4. Victor Victoria

Julie Andrews delivered an inspired performance as a woman who passes as a female impersonator in 1934 Paris. (She’s a woman pretending to be a man who is pretending to be a woman. Get it?) Why not consider redoing this film and casting breakout Orange Is the New Black actress Uzo Aduba — a trained opera singer — in the lead role? It’s not the craziest thing imaginable!

5. Funny Girl

Columbia Pictures

Atlantic Records


Once again, Streisand shines in a lead musical role, but if Hollywood should ever consider remaking this classic, which is loosely based on the career of Broadway star Fanny Brice, Janelle Monae should get a shot.

6. Grease 2

In the follow-up to the period classic (see above), Michelle Pfeiffer pulled off a pouty-lipped portrayal of Pink Ladies leader Stephanie Zinone with perfection; perhaps Rihanna can follow suit should Hollywood continue its love affair with sequels?

7. The Rocky Horror Picture Show

20th Century Fox

BBC Films


This cult classic musical comedy is ripe for a remix. How about having Oscar-nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor fill in for Tim Curry’s Dr. Frank N. Furter? Ejiofor pulled off that level of fierceness — and then some — in 2005’s Kinky Boots, where he portrayed Lola, a drag queen who forms an unlikely partnership with a shoe factory owner. Now imagine Ejiofor taking on “Sweet Transvestite.” Done.

8. Chicago

Not that we all didn’t love Renee Zellweger as Roxie Hart in the 2002 film version of this popular Broadway musical (we did!), but could British stunner Gugu Mbatha-Raw pull this off? After seeing her in Beyond the Lights, the answer is a resounding yes.

9. My Fair Lady

Audrey Hepburn as the Cockney-voiced Eliza Doolittle was masterful in the 1964 film, but in a modern world where you could combine class and race… and have it star Broadway superstar Audra McDonald in the lead role? We’d drop the mic on that too.
