“I do not regret being who I am, being as open as I’ve been. And I am proud of myself for not apologizing for it. I don’t fit into any of the boxes that so many petty-minded little motherfuckers love to put me in, and I don’t really care.”

  • what she means: Do you wake up in the morning and need help to lift your head? Do you read obituaries and feel jealous of the dead? It's like living on a cliffside, not knowing when you'll dive. Do you know, do you know what it's like to die alive?

Song of Forgetting
Brian d'Arcy James, Jennifer Damiano & Jessica Phillips

*Not my audio*

Song of Forgetting - From Next to Normal on Broadway, May 17th, 2010

This rendition of this song is probably the most heart-breaking one that I’ve heard so far… It was Brian’s first day back in N2N so that’s probably why it’s particularly emotional.

Do you Think he Likes me? (Part 2)

Phillip x Reader
Word Count: 1,480
Summary: Phillip formally meets Thomas Jefferson, who’s the father of Reader, over dinner.
A/N: This was requested, and I was excited to write it, I’m just not too sure it came out how I would’ve like it to ?? It’s kind of like a second part to ‘Goodbye, Smaller Hamilton,’ which is linked in my masterlist if you wanna read that first… Anyway, I’ll let you guys go, hope you’re having a beautiful day ☀️

“What type of stuff should we talk about?” Phillip asked nervously, stuffing his hands in his coat pockets.

You rolled your eyes; “Phillip,” you sighed, “Just normal things; we talked about this, you’re going to do fine!” You repeated yourself, for what seemed to be the millionth time that day.

Your father had allowed you to invite Phillip for dinner tonight, and needless to say, Phillip was nervous. Him and your father hadn’t really… Bonded. Of course because you were a Jefferson, and he was a Hamilton didn’t help anything, but that wasn’t your fathers main problem with your courter; he was upset that Phillip asked you to lie to your dad for months, and the only reason you told him the truth was because Phillip had made you cry one day.

Phillip nodded his head, “But just to straighten everything up-he definitely doesn’t like me?” He asked, biting his lip, anxiously.

You sighed; “Yes,” you admitted, “But not because of your name-because you hurt me when he first met you. So really, all you have to do is be a gentleman, be sweet, and then you should be great!”

Phillip quirked an eyebrow at you, “Was that supposed to be a confident booster?” He asked before turning his attention to your house that the two of you were now standing in front of.

You shrugged your shoulders, “It was just the truth,” you said casually. You grabbed his hand and pulled him up your driveway; “You’re going to be fine, Phillip,” you said, trying to be reassuring. You, of course, knew that your father would be acting hostile tonight, regardless of how kind Phillip will be being. You didn’t really want to tell Phillip that, though.

“If you say so,” he replied following you to your door.

You opened it up and instantly shrugged your coat off, taking Phillip’s, too, and hanging them both up. “Dad,” you called, “We’re home!”

Your dad peeked his head out of the kitchen so he could see you, “Hello,” he said, using his intimidating voice. You rolled your eyes.

“Hi, Mr. Jefferson,” Phillip said, doing his best to come across as confident, “Phillip Hamilton,” he introduced himself, walking to your dad and extending his hand for your father to shake.

Your dad eyed the hand, suspiciously, before looking back up at Phillip; “I know who you are,” he said, his eyebrows raised.

You sighed and took Phillip’s extended hand and held it in your own; “Dad,” you sighed, “You promised.”

Your father lead the three of you into the kitchen, then into the dining room. He sighed, “Dinner is ready.”

You rolled your eyes and lifted Phillip’s hand to your lips, pressing a gently kiss to it; you hoped your were being comforting.

“He’s just trying to be intimidating,” you said quietly to him, “I promise he was fine with it earlier.”

Phillip quirked an eyebrow; “If you’re sure,” he said dubiously.

You nodded your head confidently, “I’m sure,” you grinned.

Your father sat at the head of the table, you sat beside him, and Phillip sat beside you. “So,” your father sighed, “Three months, huh?”

Instantly, you pursed your lips and shut your eyes; you knew there would be no avoiding this, though. You just had to let him run his course.

Phillip dug his teeth into his bottom lip; “Seems that way,” he replied awkwardly. “We really weren’t sure how it would be accepted… I’m sorry, Sir.”

You looked to your father, gauging his reaction; he didn’t really have one, though. He was scooping some potatoes into his plate, and offering me some. Very maturely, though, he also offered some to Phillip, making you grin.

“It’s a long time,” your dad sighed, “To be lying, I mean.”

You had to fight not to roll your eyes; “Dad, we’ve gone over this a million times, already; stop it.”

“It was just a comment,” he quickly defended himself, using his dad-voice, which was soft and DIDN’T make you feel like you’re in trouble. There was a huge difference between his dad-voice and his cabinet-voice. This quickly changed though, once he turned to look at Phillip; “How did your father take it?” He asked gruffly, taking a sip of his water.

Phillip shrugged his shoulders, and you held his hand underneath the table, “He was shocked at first, but I think he’s getting over it; my mother was overjoyed. Claims she knew it all along,” he chuckled, rubbing his thumb over the back of your hand, “I’m not sure I believe her, though.”

Your dad cocked his head and shrugged, “Mother’s are pretty smart about those types of things,” he commented.

Both you and Phillip nodded your head in agreement, but it was you who replied; “But not you?” You asked, smirking.

Scoffing, your father raised his eyebrows, “I don’t want to give away just HOW much I know,” he began, “but I definitely noticed the increased singing, dancing, and giddiness in this household for the past few months,” he smirked.

You couldn’t help but roll your eyes this time; “That’s a lie,” you stated, chuckling.

Stubbornly, your father shook his head, “Nope,” he smiled, “I never lie.”

“You’re a politician,” you laughed, “Lying is a requirement.”

Your dad continued to disagree with you; “Not lying,” he said through a mouth full of peas, “You’ve been happier,” he claimed, turning his attention from you to Phillip, “You make her happier.”

Phillip bit his bottom lip, and you felt your cheeks heat up. Before any of you could respond, though, your father continued; “Except of course, when you’re making her cry.”

You rolled your eyes.

“I don’t plan to make it a habit, Sir,” Phillip said, nervously, “I-I really do love her.”

You looked to your father to gauge his reaction, only to find him absentmindedly fiddling with his potatoes; as if not a single one of Phillips words had impacted him in any way. You had heard Phillip say this a multitude of times, but hearing him say it confidently, in front of another person, made your heart flutter even more than usual.

That’s how the rest of the dinner went; your father making offhanded comments, and backhanded compliments to Phillip, and Phillip awkwardly and apprehensively replying, afraid to push the already splitting boundary. The three of you had the unspoken, but understood knowledge that Phillip was skating on thin ice around your father, at all times, and for a number of reasons; one, your father has always been overprotective, especially being a single parent. Two, he was also upset that Phillip had asked you to lie to him for months on end. Three, he hated that Phillip had made you upset after your first argument. And four, your father hated Alexander Hamilton.

Despite all of this, your dad knew that Phillip was making you happy, and has been for the past few months. And although he was doing his best to intimidate and frighten Phillip, you knew it was only for show, and that he was slowly but surely coming to terms with everything.

Finally, at the end of the evening, you walked Phillip to the door, to say goodbye. Holding his hand, you smiled up at him, “I think he kind of likes you,” you grinned, giddily.

Phillip let out a breath of relief, “Why’d you think that?” He asked quietly, not wanting your father to overhear, “I kind of got the impression that he hates me.”

You rolled your eyes, and held both of Phillips hands in yours, “He’s only trying to frighten you,” you said, pulling on Phillips hands so that he would bend down. Once he did, you quickly looked to the kitchen to make sure your father wasn’t eavesdropping; when you seen that he was not, you gave Phillip a gentle kiss.

“You think he likes me?” Phillip asked, his lips still pressed against yours.

You smiled, pulling away from him; “He does,” you chuckled, “I promise, Phillip.”

He sighed, and leaned back down, to give you another kiss, which you accepted gratefully.

“Y/N!” You father called from the kitchen, making you flinch away from your courter; “I can’t hear any talking!”

You could feel your cheeks heat up instantly, and you could see Phillip’s turn a deep shade of pink.

“Sorry, father!” You called, grabbing Phillip’s coat and handing it to him. “We’re just saying goodbye!” You called, biting softly on your bottom lip, “Here you go,” you said to Phillip, grinning.

He took it and slipped it on, “Thank you,” he smiled, leaning down to press a small kiss on your cheek. “Can I see you again tomorrow? I want to know everything your father says about me once I’m gone.”

You chuckled and nodded your head, “Yes,” you grinned, “I can hardly wait.”

Shots (Phillip HamiltonxReader)

This is in response to a request. “I may have had a few shots” prompt with Phillip.


You felt yourself deflate as you approached your normal desk. The stark crimson red of the Phi Mega Roar jackets stood out, scalding…and there was another girl there. Not just any girl, her. Kate, your previous tormentor. She was gorgeous and flirty and currently sitting on the lap of the guy you loved, running her hand through his curls, like you longed to.

Your usual chair next to Phillip Hamilton was still open, as the girl was using his lap instead of a chair but you really couldn’t bring yourself to walk over there and be that close and hear what the two were murmuring to each other. She giggled sharply and leaned in to kiss him.

You jerked around and ran towards any seat where you didn’t have to see them. In your hurry, you stumbled tripping over your own feet, flustered by pain and jealousy. You sharply bounced off the edge of one desk and right into a pair of arms.

“Ai. Tu vas bien? Are you okay mademoiselle?” A warm voice asked.

You stood up, more flustered and brushed yourself off. You had fallen into someone’s lap when they’d turned around in their chair. Not just any someone. Georges Washington de Lafayette.

“Sorry Georges.” You said as you tried to pick up your stuff.

“It’s more than okay madamoiselle. I certainly don’t mind when when femmes belles fall into my arms. Please. Have a seat.” He said, beckoning you to the empty chair next to him. Breathing a sigh of relief you sat down next to him. There’s one problem solved.

Georges began to engage you in conversation. As you talked with him you began to forget about Kate and Phillip. It was still in the back of your mind, but it was at the back. You were almost disappointed when your teacher walked into the classroom.

You tuned him out as he droned on until he said something that caught your ears.

“So you won’t be doing a test for your midterms.”

You internally celebrated.

“You’ll be doing a mandatory partner project.” Slightly less celebration. You turned to Georges at the same time he turned to you.

“Do you want to work together?” He asked. You smiled and nodded.

“Wonderful. You are always so smart from how you speak in class, but I’ve never gotten to experience your brilliance first hand and up close. Hamilton has hogged you.” He joked.

You ignored the Lang that you felt. You usually did work with Phillip, but today you just couldn’t bear the thought of turning around and seeing him with Kate. Besides, it would be fun to branch out.

You turned around as you felt a tap on your shoulder, and saw Phillip sitting on the desk behind you.
“Hey y/n. So what theme were you thinking of for our project? I was thinking we could do something that correlates with the theme of our previous projects-”

“Phillip! I’m working with Georges on this one.”

Phillip looked surprised and confused.

“We always work together.”
“Well, yeah, but I wanted to try something different.” You said.
“Oh, um…okay then. I’ll see you later then.” Phillip said, hugging you before walking away and looking for another partner. You could smell Kate’s expensive perfume on him. You pulled away as you were reminded of being taunted because you didn’t wear expensive perfume and being called a pig and treated accordingly. You shuddered and turned back to Georges and began planning your project.
“Y/N?” You looked over at Georges, who seemed concerned.
“Let’s get started.” You said
You and Georges started on the project and by the time class was over you were feeling so lighthearted and you had laughed so much your lungs and you cheeks hurt. You were really beginning to like Georges…but you’d barely gotten any wok done.
“Okay. You are hilarious, but we’ve barely gotten anything done. How about we meet up on Wednesday afternoon to work on this?” you asked.
“Sure. I would love that. I say coffee. Oh and here’s my number.” Georges said, smiling at you.
You smiled back, and left the classroom feeling bubbly.
You tried to ignore Phillip, walking in his tight huddle with his frat brothers and soror siststers and Kate hanging all over him…
“Y/N?!” Phillip yelled, running to catch up to you. You slowed down.
“Hey, Phillip.” You said.
“Hey, I know that we usually hang out and do a movie night on Wednesday, but there’s going to be an omega party and I was wondering if we could hang out there instead.” Phillip proposed.
You looked over his shoulder and saw Kate glaring daggers at you, as though to remind you what had happened the last time you had tried to be an Omega and a promise of what would happen if you tried to associate yourself with them again.
You were glad you had an excuse.
“I’d love to, but I need to work on the project with Georges and I’m meeting up with him on Wednesday.” You told Phillip.
Things progressed much like that as time went on. The fraternity was pulling your friend away from you..and he let them. Or maybe you let them. All that you knew was that Phillip was replacing your normal hangout times with frat events, and when he invited you to them, you were heavily discouraged, so you stayed away…and began spending more time with Georges.
You grew to like him, a lot. When he asked you out on an official date, you were excited. He wasn’t Phillip, but maybe Phillip was only meant to be one of your best friends…
3 months later*****************
“Georges! Are you coming to the frat party tonight? We haven’t hung out in forever and our parents are meeting this weekend, so we may as well catch up now.” Phillip said.
“Mon ami, it almost sounds like you are forcing yourself to hang out with me.” Georges said, feigning being hurt.
Phillip just grunted in response and tried to walk away.
“Wait, mon ami. I was kidding, You aren’t seriously trying to avoid me? After all the years that we’ve been friends you’d want to just leave me like that?” Georges asked.
Phillip’s fist clenched as he turned back around.
“Well apparently that’s what happens with friendships! Ask your girlfriend!” Phillip spat, hurling the last word like it was vicious poison.
Georges merely looked confused.
“Y/N? Mon belle. No. She is so sweet and kind and amazing…What does this have to do with her?” Georges asked. Phillip’s face softened.
“Nothing. I-I’m sorry man. I’m not avoiding you. I’ll see you at the party tonight.” Phillip said.
**********************
Phillip was enjoying himself. He sat on the couch next to his childhood friend, chatting warmly. He missed that warm familiar presence of comfortable easy friendship. The friendship of his frat house came with such pressures, but…you didn’t want to hang out with him anymore. He missed you so much. Friendship here, the pressures… It didn’t feel unconditional or easy…like the pressure sitting in front of him on the coffee table. They had come by earlier with a tray of shots. Everyone in the frat or sorority had to take at least one. He had yet to take his.
He pushed those thoughts out of his head, as he tried to focus on hat his friend was saying. He was talking about his new girlfriend: y/n.
“Yes, well life has been so amazing since I’ve been with y/n.”
Phillip felt a hole in his life where you had been. He missed you so much, These few months without you, when you hadn’t been hanging out with him had made him realize how much he lov-cherished having you in his life. And how upset it made him that he had been replaced in your life.
“She is…wow. I love her so much. Even the small things like kissing her, mon dieu, it’s amazing. Her lips are so soft and taste like cherries…”
Suddenly the shots looked really appealing. Without thinking, he grabbed one and downed it in one swallow, trying to wash away the pain and jealousy and regret and twisted longing. It burned as it went down his throat, but it didn’t help.
You had replaced him. He grabbed another one. All that he had left were these “friends” who wanted him to drink. He downed another one. He so desperately wanted to taste cherry lips for himself, but instead he had to hear about it from his close friend. He reached for another.
“Phillip! Stop! What are you doing? Stop!” Georges yelled, dragging Phillip away. The alcohol kicked in fast. He began crying and giggling hysterically at the same time. Georges dragged him to a more remote location and began trying to take care of him. After about 20 minutes of failed attempts at sobering Phillip, his phone rang.
“Salut? Oui. Oui. Je suis occupe. Oui je le pense.” Georges spoke into his phone.
“Hey Phillip, I’m dropping you off at a friend’s house. My dad needs help packing. She’ll take good care of you.”
You came to your door as you heard a knock. You were a bit surprised when you opened it. Georges stood on the other side of the door, with Phillip leaning on him.
“Something happened at the party and I have an emergency with packing and I didn’t know where else to take him. Can you take care of him?” Georges asked.
“Of course,” you responded, grabbing Phillip lightly and pulling him into the small space. As soon as Georges shut the door and left Phillip hugged you, tightly and wouldn’t let go. You were unsure of what was wrong with him, though you had your suspicions. When he giggled, you smelled the alcohol on his breath, confirming your suspicions.
“Phillip, are you drunk?” you asked.
“No.” he responded unconvincingly.
You pried him off of you, sat him down on the couch, before getting him a cup of water.
“Phillip, I’ll ask you again, and don’t lie to me, because I can smell the alcohol on you, are you drunk?” you asked when you came back.
“I may have had a few shots.” Phillip said.
“What? Why?!” you asked.
“Well maybe because it’s my first few months of college and everything is awful! Finals are stressing me. My old friends have left me behind. My new friends keep pressuring me. I realize just how much I miss you and just how easily you replace me. Oh and I have to sit and listen to one of my longtime friends giving me all the gory fetails about how much he loves dating he girl I love and listen to him going on and on about the taste of your lips…so yeah. I may have had a few shots.” Phillip droned off.
“How dare you?” You responded.
“For months you’ve been dating the girl who used to bully me! You’ve been incorporating yourself into the fraternity that made my life a living hell! And I am not going off getting drunk!” you yelled.
Phillip froze for a moment, eyes widening in shock, then narrowing in anger. He got up and marched to the door.
“Phillip where are you going?” you asked.
“To kick the crap out of some people for messing with my girl!” he said.
“No. Phillip get back here.” You said, dragging Phillip back to the couch.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t know.” He said.
“I know you didn’t…Did you actually mean what you said?” you asked, timidly.
“Yeah. I love you. I’ve realized it over these past few months as you’ve been gone…Although I know it’s too late and I won’t ruin your happiness-“
“Phillip!” you cut him off.
“I need to tell you something. Georges broke up with me. He’s moving back to France and a long distance relationship wouldn’t work and we decided that we were better off just friends. We care about each other, and it was fun…but we don’t love each other.” You told him.
Phillip felt shocked. He actually remembered Georges possibly saying something like this. He’d said that his relationship had been fun and he’d enjoyed it. Phillip must have missed the part about the breakup.
“Do you want to give us a try?” Phillip asked abruptly, the alcohol still giving him courage.
“My feelings for you haven’t really changed. They never did, I guess…” you said, thinking out loud.
“So…is that a yes?” Phillip asked hopefully.
“Let’s talk about it in the morning…but I think it is.” You said. He smiled, suddenly feeling a bit more sober, and more drunk on love.

Hi! I love this blog, thank you for your hard work! I'm currently writing a story with an android bodyguard character; I know his priority would be keeping his charge safe and getting them out of dangerous situations asap, but if it comes down to fighting and his firearm isn't an option, realistically would it be better to use subdual or a more lethal martial art? ie I've been looking at Krav Maga, but would that be too 'lethal' to use?

It depends on your goals, but there is a fundamental disconnect here. An android isn’t going to be human. Krav Maga (and any other real martial art) is designed to be used by humans against other humans. Even if we’re talking about the bio-mechanical androids of Phillip K. Dick’s work, normal martial arts aren’t really that relevant. They’re designed for people of roughly human strength and endurance to deal with other humans. When you have an engineered lifeform, those assumptions go out the window.

If you’ve never watched them, I’d recommend taking a look at Blade Runner (1982), Terminator (1984), Terminator 2 (1991), and Alien (1979) (though, this is really for one scene in the entire film, so feel free to pass on this if the film isn’t your thing). (It is still, absolutely worth watching.) Strictly speaking, Terminator 2′s the only one on this list with an android serving as a bodyguard, but they should give you some ideas of how something fundamentally mechanical might fight.

Before anyone rushes to the comments, these are by no means the only examples, there’s a lot of media on the subject, but these are all readily available, and should give you some ideas. Not just how your androids fight, but also how you might want them to behave or believe.

It was the first hole, Olivia. The first breach. The first crack in a pattern of cracks, spaces between the worlds. And it’s my fault.
