Howdy, kiddos! Welcome to the first installment of my Jamilton series! Special thanks to @ciceroniantrash for getting me hooked on this ship. If we’re gonna drown in Jamilton Sea, at least we’re going down with this ship together. ANYWAY! General warnings for this series: suicide is a kinda major theme. It doesn’t appear in Part One, but I’d rather get that out there now so anyone who wants to avoid the series can.
Enjoy, bbys! ^.^
Why wasn’t Alexander answering his damn phone. How difficult was it to swipe and put the phone to his ear, to say hey, I’m not dead. I’m fine. Oh, and, um, by the way, I love you.
Okay, so maybe Jefferson was getting a little carried away there. But it wasn’t like Alexander to not answer. Their relationship may only have been a few months old, but Alex’s love of blabbing most definitely started in the womb.
Thomas decided to leave another (the fifth in forty-five minutes) message on Alex’s phone.
“Hey, jerk. Why the hell aren’t you picking up?” he snarked. “Seriously, though, Alexander. You’re worrying me. Call me back in five minutes or I’m busting the door to your dorm down.”
Five minutes ticked by. His phone stayed silent.
So who can blame him for stomping two houses down to the one Alex lived in, waiting for another student to exit so he could slip in, and storming up the stairs to Alex’s single suite?
Once he got there, he pounded on Alexander’s door with both his fists, screaming at the top of his lungs “ALEXANDER HAMILTON OPEN THIS DOOR UP RIGHT NOW OR SO HELP ME GOD I WILL BREAK IT DOWN!”
He fell silent, pressing his ear to the thick white door, listening for any signs of life. There was a groan and some shuffling. Thank fucking god, Jefferson thought.
Alex opened the door, his eyes red and puffy, dark hair sticking up, and his normally tan cheeks a few shades too rosy. “Wha-did-I-miss,” he murmured. He looked at his boyfriend as if he were surprised to see him there.
“Why the hell aren’t you answering your phone?” Jefferson asked, his voice losing its harsh edge after taking in his boyfriend’s appearance.
“It fell,” Alex said simply, as if it couldn’t ever be picked back up.
“Are you okay?” Jefferson wasn’t sure why he even bothered to ask. The answer was so obvious. But he liked to hear what Alex had to say, and usually Alex had a lot to say, so his sudden silence was concerning.
“Yeah, why?” he asked with a cough.
Jefferson narrowed his eyes. Without any warning, he shoved past Alexander, grabbing the smaller boy by the arm and pulling him toward his bed. He scooped him up and sat him on top of it. All Alex did was blink at him a few times.
“What the hell is wrong with you?” Jefferson muttered.
“Um?” Alex cocked his head and took in his boyfriend, then began to giggle.
“Sweet Jesus,” Jefferson sighed. He felt Alex’s head. Yup. How did he not guess sooner?
“Ha,” Alex said without smiling.
“Nothing is funny, Alex,” Jefferson admonished. “I seriously thought you were dead.”
“My phone fell,” Alex whined.
“Where?” Jefferson sighed, putting a hand to his own temple and massaging it. It was going to be a long day.
“I don’t know,” Alex shrugged.
“Ugh,” Jefferson groaned. “Where’s your thermometer?” Then he laughed. “Why the hell am I asking you? You don’t even know where your phone is.”
Alex had flopped over on his side and was staring into space, Jefferson’s words having absolutely no effect on him.
Jefferson sifted through Alex’s things, finally landing on a first aid kit that one of the Washingtons must have packed him because it was also full of things that didn’t come in a traditional first aid kit, one of those things thankfully being a thermometer.
He walked back to Alex, opened the smaller boy’s mouth, and put it in under his tongue. He waited a few minutes before pulling it out.
“Shit,” he said.
106. This was too high for him to safely cure with soup, sleep, and a watchful eye.
He looked down at his boyfriend and sighed. No wonder Alexander was so out of it. He was delirious from the fever. He sat down next to Alex and gently placed a hand on the small of his back.
“Hey, babe,” he said as calmly as he could. “We’re gonna take a little field trip.”
“Why’re we going to a field?” Alex muttered. “It’s the middle of the winter.”
“Actually, it’s, like, November?” Jefferson tried his best not to be condescending. It wasn’t an easy feat. “But anyway, we’re going on a field trip, not to a field.”
“Oh,” Alex said in a way that told Jefferson the smaller boy had comprehended zero percent of that.
“So, um, yeah.” Jefferson stuttered. “One sec,” he said.
He flitted around Alex’s room, gathering up any supplies that seemed necessary in the moment, which is how he ended up with a blanket, a few granola bars, Alex’s phone (it had been on his bed the entire time), and a poli-sci book. Why that was necessary, he wasn’t sure, but it just felt right.
He wrapped his feverish boyfriend up in the blanket and carried him bridal-style out of his dorm room and into the crisp November air. Luckily, Jefferson had parked his car in the parking lot in the middle of campus, so it wasn’t a far walk.
He gently set Alex, who was now shivering, on the hood of the car, supporting him with one arm as he unlocked the car, then loaded his boyfriend into the backseat, settling him in so he was lying down.
“Floof,” Alex said, reaching up to pat Jefferson’s bouncy curls with a giggle.
Jefferson frowned at him, not because he didn’t find him endearing, but because this was so unlike him.
He climbed into the front seat and started the car. “Okay, babe, we’re gonna get you feeling better,” he said with his Jefferson-esque confidence.
But, for once in his life, he wasn’t so sure that he meant what he said.
Not gonna lie, I’m kinda emo about Echo moving all the way on the other side of Bellamy when he steps in front of Riley. Like her effort to avoid killing Bellamy is so endearing??? WHY AM I LIKE THIS? I ALWAYS WANNA ADOPT THE ANGSTY, AGGRESSIVE, EMOTIONALLY-STUNTED WARRIOR GIRL???? Like I’m not saying I ship it, but….I wanna protect you, Echo???? You bitch who “killed” Octavia???? WTF is wrong with me???
tbh I'm kinda mad at you. I started following you when hawkeyedflame gave you a shoutout, and it's been lovely. BUT, because of you I've been shipping more and more and it's getting harder to maintain my facade of masculinity when I'm gushing over Dianakko. Gee darn it stop being so adorable over your ships >.<
Okay first of all since when did @hawkeyedflame give me a shoutout? lol! Allison have you been talking nice about me? :) I’m flattered. And second: Hahahahaha! Not gonna lie but this definitely made me cackle out loud. Oh, sweet anon I’m not even the least bit sorry about that. I will never stop being adorable about my ships, ever~! They all give me life hehehehehe!
Not gonna lie tho, I seriously low key shipped the reader and tae in the first bunny kook scenario... bc the whole prey reader rabbit/ predator tae fox dynamic + ...i just watched zootopia lmao,,,, I dunno I love reader+bunny kook but I think it would be a cute opportunity for jealous kookie
Ahaha, really?? XD that’s kinda cool, an alternative ship in one of my fics. I’ve never seen zootopia, so I can’t really relate on that front, but yeah, it’s an interesting dynamic <3 yes, jealous kookie with his tongue-in-cheek thing XD
when or if I started shipping it: I’ve never actually gotten into it, but I’ll admit that when I saw it, I could see some potential.
my thoughts: Neutral. You can have some cute stuff with it but it doesn’t really grab me. I do like the idea of Red falling for a smart girl, it’s different from seeing him constantly fawn for pretty girls in the fandom. And I like the idea of Dahlia at first thinking Red’s kinda a brute but then seeing that he’s actually pretty smart.
What makes me happy about them: You gave me that headcanon of Red liking Science puns and laughing at Dahlia’s and Dahlia just loving his smile, not gonna lie it warmed my heart :3
What makes me sad about them: Nothing really? At least it doesn’t seem like an angsty ship to me.
things done in art/fic that annoys me: Nothing I guess. There’s not much to judge on anyway.
things I look for in art/fic: Development is always nice. Also cuteness, that’s also always nice.
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: I’ve said who I ship Red with like, what, 3 times already? XD As for Dahlia, I like her single to be honest which for me is…very rare. I don’t know why, I kinda like the idea of Dahlia and Ice? I like the idea of them having like, mind games because Dahlia’s trying to get to know him more for being an alien and Ice is keeping his mouth shut since he doesn’t want to be a science experiment to her. I see a lot of mentally challenging banter.
My happily ever after for them: The thought of them being flock leaders together would be really cool, Dahlia being the brains and Red being the motivator.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity?: Judging people together.
Guess who watched the Season 6 premiere…. I DIIIID! And BOY was it good; I honestly think it’s one of the best premiers to date! So much character development, so much neigh, so much friendship, and some worldbuilding to boot! Oh man, do I have some headcanon coming up. C:< But no really I really enjoyed the premiere; the characters were of course great, especially the new ones. I’ve always been neutral to Starlight but this episode has helped me like her a little more, Flurry Heart’s so freakin’ cute, and SUNBURST OH MAN. Such a cutie. I love his personality and design. ;_;
So to celebrate the arrival of the new season here’s another pair of headshots from my Portrait Series, featuring Sunburst and Starlight Glimmer! I’m not gonna lie… I kinda ship it. :I
Once again, worked with Watercolors, a black Sharpie, and White Acrylics on mixed-media paper. Both took about 2 hours each, and so much fun to paint! My scanner kinda faded the color on Sunburst but that’s okay. :3
Feel free to ask me any questions if you have any. And I hope you guys like them! ^.^
