Batmom Senses - Batmom x Batfam

A/N: This is the first of five prompts voted on for the 2.5k follower celebration!

Prompt: Can I request one where Batmom sends the batboys texts to mother them -and sometimes to mess with them by sending something like ‘No’ or ‘I know what you’re doing’ at random, not knowing it usual hits the mark and makes them wonder if she’s psychic?

Tonight’s the night, Dick’s sure of it. He had everything planned out down to the last detail and tonight was going to be perfect for both of them, he was sure of it. He was a grown man, this certainly wasn’t his first time making love to the person he loved so why did he feel so nervous?

Dick was pulled out of his thoughts when he felt his phone vibrate in his pocket. He unlocked the screen to see that he had just received a text from his mom.

‘Use protection.’ Was all it read.

How?’ He typed back. His mom had a special knack for knowing when her sons were up to know good, call it a ‘mom sense’ if you will. But even by her standards this was uncanny.

I think you know how to use protection. I’m too young to be a grandmother Richard Grayson. Use it.


“Oh yes.” Jason grinned spotting a freshly iced cake on top of the counter. He looked around the kitchen to see if anyone was around before he grabbed a fork from inside the utensil drawer. He plopped himself down on one of the kitchen island stools and pulled the cake to him. He had his fork poised in the air, ready to dig in, when his phone buzzed on the counter.

Jason sighed and dropped the fork to open up the message. It was a text from Ma reading:

Stop what you’re doing right now and ask yourself if I’d approve. If the answer is no, don’t do it.

“God damn it.” Jason groaned, tossing the fork back into the drawer and walking as far away from that cursed cake as possible. “I never get anything in this fucking family.” He grumbled.


Tim had been up for four days now. He was busy working on a case and he couldn’t pull himself away from it until he saw this through. But even he was human and needed a bit of liquid assistance to keep him going. At this point coffee wasn’t really doing the trick so he went to his back up plan.

Tim pulled out a Monster energy drink from his fridge and twisted the cap off of a Five Hour Energy. He was about ready to pour the tiny bottle into the can when his phone chirped, signaling an incoming text message.

It was a text from mom:

Timothy Jackson Drake. Bed. Now.

Tim gave one last glance to his heart-failure-in-a-can and pushed it away from him before turning on his heel and immediately walked to his bedroom. He was asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow.


“I’m going to name you Drake.” Damian said gently patting the little piglet’s head. Damian had found the poor thing caught in a storm drain and he couldn’t just leave him there. He sure as hell wasn’t going to give the piglet back to whoever had abandoned it in this situation. Damian just knew Drake would be best friends with Batcow.

Damian stopped showering the piglet with attention when he felt his phone vibrate in his belt. He pulled it out and pouted at the message.

No.

How could she possibly know? He hadn’t even asked to adopt his new friend yet!

“-Tt-” Damian frowned. “Come on Drake! She’ll change her mind when she sees you.” Damian said defiantly, swaddling the piglet in his cape to keep him safe and warm before making his way home.

Pairing: Reddie

warnings: NSFW- THESE CHARACTERS ARE 18 AND THEY DO SHIT TOGETHER OKAY? IF YOU ARE NOT MATURE ENOUGH TO HANDLE THAT DO NOT READ THIS also some fluff and swearing but what else is new

word count: 9,870

Summary:  “You know how to dance?” Eddie demands, still skeptical, and Richie is almost offended.
“Yes, actually,” he scoffs with a good natured laugh. “Is that so hard to believe?”
Eddie opens his mouth, but Richie cuts him off before he can tell his friend that yes, that’s incredibly hard to believe.
“Don’t answer that, dickhead,” Richie says as he gets up, wiping his sweaty palms onto his jeans. “C’mon, get up.” He instructs and holds out a hand to pull Eddie to his feet. “I’m teaching you.”

anonymous asked:

i havent been COMPLETELY thru your list of reddie fics so if youve already done something similar ignore this but. what about a sickfic where richie is sick? also maybe eddie just like, forgets about germs to take care of him and then ends up getting sick too and blaming richie and richies jus like, dude, were you here

i changed it a little but only the part where he blames richie and richie wonders if he was there !!! hope u like it :-)

again,,, sorry for the length?? but i cant write these short?? also again. IT IS WORTH IT 

  • so obviously eddie is TERRIFIED of germs and every time one of the losers has even a little flu he’s not gonna touch anything they touch and will stand 5 feet away from them and honestly in the end will probably just be that one friend who’s gonna say
  • “my mom said no”
  • just so that he won’t hurt his friends’ feelings even tho he really just doesn’t wanna be anywhere near them bc hey he could get it too and it could turn into something more dangerous like leper obviously
  • but then one tragic time… richie gets a flu
  • and eddie’s very torn bc he doesn’t wanna be with richie cause ???? he isn’t clean
  • but then again they were supposed to hangout
  • eddie is thinking whether he should ditch richie or not
  • “jesus i’ve been sneezin since 8am”
  • yeah eddie is not gonna go there
  • the gERMS ARE FLYING and just the thought makes him shiver
  • he’s thinking that oh well maybe tomorrow he’s gonna be ok again
  • spoiler alert: he’s not
  • so eddie suffers thru the day bc its boring at school without richie
  • they talk on the phone later that day and eddie’s like hey r u feeling any better
  • “i am nod” richie answers with a stuffed nose
  • eddie just sits on his bed with a facial expression that is nothing other than :(
  • then the day after that ,,, eddie goes to school in hopes of that maybe richie had a miracle healing last night and now he’s gonna be there
  • LMAO YOU THOUGHT EDS
  • now eddie is just gettin pissed off bc how dare his boyfriend be sick for this long
  • so again that night they speak on the phone
  • “richie jesus christ when are u gonna HEAL
  • “i am do dorry eddi-spageddi bud i am just so sig”
  • eddie is gonna turn into hulk soon from the conflict bc he REALLY misses richie
  • should i stay or i should go™
  • (nice stranger things reference)
  • ok maybe eddie is gonna give it one more day.
  • so it’s friday and richie has missed school for almost the whole WEEK
  • “wow eddie you’ve been without richie for almost the whole school week how’s that feel must be a new record huh”
  • “shut up stan”
  • don’t be mean stan
  • eddie’s heart is breakin
  • again,,, he goes home from school and calls richie immediately
  • “ARE YOU,,,,STILL…. SICK?????”
  • “yeah i— *LEPER COUGH* i ah-ah-AMh *cough*
  • eddie cringes because ???? oh my gosh he is turning into a zombie
  • “oK THATS IT”
  • eddie has had it
  • he hangs up and stomps out of the house and rides his bike to the grocery store and buys all kinds of stuff like non-caffeine tea ((bc he knows for a fact that it helps better than regular)),, some ice cream and chicken soup in a can even tho eddie thinks it’s disgusting and fights with one of the workers
  • “YOU DONT HAVE NORMAL,,, READY CHICKEN SOUP IN THE FRESH FOOD SECTION????”
  • “yeah not today”
  • my bOYFRIenD haS bEeN SiCK!! FOR A WEEk and i hAVE TO BRING HIM A CAN????”
  • eddie shakes his head in disbelief and curses the store as he walks away
  • then he finally arrives at richie’s house
  • he knocks on the door first just in case his terrible excuse of parents are home but they aren’t
  • so he leans down to grab the key from under the doormat and opens the door
  • he walks in and stiffens his upper lip as he glances around at the sight of empty beer cans and liquor bottles and there’s just the smell of old booze and cigarettes in the air
  • like it’s normal (and eddie hates that it’s normal) but richie’s SICK and he should be breathing fresh air not the literal definition of the breath of a drunken bum who’s been living in the gutter
  • this wasn’t what he was expecting bc he figured that richie’s parents would at least open the fucking window because their son is sick inside the house
  • so quickly eddie makes his way to richie’s room that is at the end of the hallway and he knocks on it softly before opening the door
  • he finds richie sitting in his bed ,,, burrito inside blankets and he’s watching something from his laptop
  • his eyes are red and his face is a lil swollen and nose also v red
  • eddie wants to cry bc he looks so bad
  • “eddi???”
  • “yes,,, eddi to the rescue” he mocks his boyfriend’s stuffy nose voice a little
  • richie is literally starstruck bc ???? EDDIE IS THERE ???? EDDIE , IS THERE , WHEN HE IS SICK ????
  • “whad de fug edz u should go befor u ged dis doo”
  • “i’ve been to school without you for a week now richard im done”
  • richie wants to cry
  • eddie is still just staring at him bc he doesn’t know how to approach him since he’s still a little disgusted at the situation this is all new for him ok but he really wants to help his bf
  • “i bought u some stuff”
  • richie starts to smile wide
  • “BUT” eddie starts
  • “before i give u any”
  • “????”
  • “you’re gonna leave this house”
  • richie looks at him like he’s crazy
  • “r u serioud eddi every pard of ma badi hurts”
  • eddie feels so bad for him
  • “you don’t even have fresh air here richie so i am serious”
  • richie can’t take the fact that his boyfriend is such a knight in shiny armor
  • eddie leaves the bag for a moment to grab richie inside his blanket burrito and pull him up.
  • “ur gonna have to get rid of this blanket tho”
  • “no:(”
  • eddie looks at him
  • “srsly richie i can’t give you a ride on my bike you’re gonna fall down and roll down the hill”
  • “:(”
  • “i will give you my blanket once we’re there”
  • richie throws his blanket down way too fast and he starts feeling nauseous
  • the bike ride isn’t very aesthetic™ for him either bc his head is spinning and all of his muscles hurt and oh my gosh he’s doing his everything not to throw up on eddie’s back rn
  • eddie’s mom isn’t home so eddie can easily sneak richie in
  • he’s not sure how he’s gonna explain him living there until he’s healthy again tho
  • but he’s not gonna worry about that now
  • (fast forward;
  • i donT CARE THAT HE’S SICK AND INFECTED MOM,, i LoVE HiM!!!!)
  • so now they go into eddie’s room ( he’s basically holding richie up )
  • and richie settles down on eddie’s bed and eddie wraps him inside a blanket and richie is just smiling at him the whole time
  • “r u comfortable”
  • “very” richie says. the blanket smells like eds and he is in eddie’s bed. ofc he’s comfortable 
  • “here’s my laptop”
  • eddie hands him his macbook and goes to the kitchen to prepare the chicken soup. in the can. which eddie still thinks is unacceptable as he heats it up
  • “here”
  • richie is about to cry bc “did you really mage me chiggen soub”
  • eddie nods with a light frown like wtf obviously that’s what you eat when you’re sick
  • “there’s also ice cream”
  • ice cream???”
  • “yeah it’s for the throat…???
  • eddie is kinda confused bc how can richie not know it helps
  • then it occurs to him that
  • richie doesn’t know, because
  • no one’s probably ever taken care of him when he’s sick????
  • i REPEAT, NO ONE’S EVER TAKEN CARE OF RICHIE TOZIER WHEN HE IS SICK
  • now eddie wants to cry
  • “scoot over”
  • he wants richie to be on the side next to the wall so he can lean his head on it if he wants to it’s more comfy  
  • with a lil trouble richie does move and eddie cuddles up next to him
  • literally cuddles
  • richie is SHOCKED
  • “are you sure u wanna do dat”
  • “100%”

  • “eat ur chicken soup and watch this movie with me now oKAY” eddie is a pissed off knight in shiny armor bc talking is just gonna exhaust richie more and he needs to get WELL
  • richie eats his soup and they watch the movie in silence,,,, glued to each other and at some point eddie realizes richie’s fallen asleep with his head resting towards eddie’s
  • eddie can’t move because he knows if he does he’s gonna wake up richie
  • but thankfully after like 15 minutes richie wakes up and he’s like “shid where am i”
  • “you’re with me”
  • he turns his gaze down at eddie and he remembers that yes,,, he is in fact with eddie and he just feels: ️️️️️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  • well the weekend goes by and eddie goes hardcore nurse on richie and literally by sunday he is already pretty healthy like his voice is back to normal and so on

I love how her hand stays on his chest, caressing, the engagement ring sparkling on her finger, while she whispers his name trying to wake him up, how relieved she is when he does. And him saying it’s you, My you, after seeing how a world without them not knowing each other, not being together looks like, he’s back to the Beckett he loves, who loves him and wants to marry him.

DCEU Dick Grayson

Here’s a list of actors that I would be 100% down if they were cast as Dick since Dick’s Titans TV show casting disappointed the hell out of me

1. Matthew Daddario

If you follow me you may know how I feel about this. He’s absolutely perfect. Just look at him?? He doesn’t have blue eyes but that can be fixed with contacts if needed. Honestly would cry if he was cast.

2. Richard Madden

Yes..Robb Stark… but LISTEN. This can work. I’m a firm believer. His name is Richard. It’s a sign.

3. Aaron Taylor Johnson

Or he could play a sick Jason Todd

4. Riz Ahmed

He’s so charming. Dick is 78% charm.

5. Joe Alwyn

Dye his hair. Done.

6. Ben Barnes

He’s maybe too old (ripe old age of 36), the second oldest on the list. But he looks the part and is a sweetheart.

7. Kit Harrington

I know I know… Second “King In The North!” on the list but Kit wouldn’t look bad at all in blue and black. I have doubts about his wit and charm, but he’s not just Jon Snow. Kit himself is a very likeable and happy man.

8. Matt Bomer

I’m just adding him because we must never forget how amazing he would be as Dick. Sadly he’s near 40, so this probably will never happen. Still. Never forget.

9. Fionn Whitehead

Fight me. Right now.

10. An unknown.

Surprise me. Seriously. As long as DCEU!Dick is charming, flirty, a dork and has dark hair I actually don’t care. Just get an actor who’s passionate and determined to do his own stunts (my boy Richard is an acrobat, do him justice). Anything less than an incredible ass would also be an injustice to the character, but if that’s what it takes for me to have a great Dick Grayson, then so be it.

Whoever it is: just give Dick the blue suit. Forget red ever existed.

  • me: *takes a deep breath*
  • me: i lo-
  • anyone who has spent five seconds around me ever: yes, you love gansey, we know, you love richard gansey so much, he's the light of your life, you love him so much, you just love gansey, we KNOW, you love gansey you fucking love gansey ok we know, we get it, YOU LOVE GANSEY. WE GET IT.
From This Far Away

|| a zimbits fic || hurt + comfort || ~2k ||

Bitty sobs in the kitchen. Messy sobs that tear out of his throat and involve his whole body in shakes and twitches. He presses his face hard into his arm to try and muffle the noise.

He needs to stop and go back to bed and to Jack, but it’s so hard when he has dreams about distance and lost time and a million complications. Dreams where he breaks apart; little flakes of confetti scattering down the sidewalk.

The kitchen light flicks on and Bitty cracks his head up, surprised. He squints against the sudden light.

Jack is silhouetted in the doorway. Seeing him brings back all Bitty’s horrible nightmares and daydreams, and the thoughts he tries his best to chase away but that are engraved right up under his ribcage and in the muscles of his hands that shake when he touches Jack’s face sometimes.

Bitty looks away from Jack and curls his legs up toward his body, hunching himself into a ball. He cries into his knees and gasps and apologises to Jack over and over for waking him.

Jack doesn’t say anything. He joins Bitty on the kitchen floor, sitting beside him with creaking knees, and wrapping his arms around Bitty to bring his torso around the curve of Bitty’s bent back.

Bitty feels Jack’s love with him in the room, and it doesn’t stop him from crying. Because love, that’s what the problem is, the big root of all his damn problems. It’s why he’s crying and why he hates crying. Because he loves Jack. So, so, so damn much.

Jack strokes his hair, the shell of his ear, his shoulder. He shushes, and rocks, and is there, dependable and warm.

“I can’t do this, Jack,” Bitty gasps out, shaking his head back and forth, back and forth against Jack’s chest.

what do you think gansey was like when he was a little kid? was he obsessive about nerdy history even then too? did he have an interest in kings before he began his quest to find a sleeping welsh one? did he stay up late under the covers with a flashlight reading about fantasy and adventure? do you think he ever got bullied by other kids, or has he always had the talent of knowing how to wear a handsome mask, knowing how to charm everyone? who was gansey before glendower??

blue is the fiery comeback you thought of five minutes too late. she wants the unattainable, is the desire to be everything everyone is not. the stars, a kiss, a difference in heights or opinions. black hair with jagged ends, dull scissors, too many elbows in the bathroom. matching eyes, matching taste; cutting, expressive, wistful. the wish you hold to every 11:11, the combat boots you almost bought.

ronan is angles and anger; mouth sharpened in a sneer, to jutting cheekbones, tensed, to a buzzed head. he is the argument you tried to avoid, all action and noise. the sound of a dress shirt whispering against a pew, the grip on a steering wheel. tall enough to knock his head on things: restaurant lamps, common sense, tall enough to be the only reason someone would look up to him. he is the sound between fourth and fifth gear, talon scars on his shoulders. molten blue eyes and careless self-possession, bruised knuckles, a switchblade of a smile.

adam is delicate. dusted in freckles, he is the day’s last few rays during dusk; tired, so tired, but still stretching for something he cannot yet reach. he is lithe, a curve to every bone. a curve to his lips, always half held back. sand dusted lashes, dustier hair, ocean eyes. something to make you sigh: rolling waves on a too-windy day, car trouble before class. he is the pride that straightens his back. oil on his hands, chapped from being washed too many times for this and the country dirt underneath his nails.

gansey is the indecisive fact. on the outside his shoulders are broad, like his mind. hands shoved through hair brown and sun-kissed, too many questions, too little sleep under his dreaming hazel eyes. sometimes these eyes are golden, sometimes unreadable, sometimes afraid. he is the perfunctory statement in a debate, breeding betrayed in the jaw, a square, in his precise features. he is the character of worn leather, the smell of gasoline, blind faith.

noah is the way sunlight catches in your rearview mirror and washes your reflection out: pale, light hair, colorless lips. he is your darkly tinted windows, but smudged. dorito fingerprints on the corner of a page. misty eyes, a fair day in the forest; blue or green or brown, something distant, laughing, witty. the glitter you never notice that is subtly everywhere, a joke muttered under his breath, the closing of a door.

kavinsky is the roar of an engine. dark greased hair, slippery tongue behind full lips around a bottle of lukewarm beer. a language you don’t speak. an empty home, a cynical remark, the feeling you get when you know you’re too late. thin from too many near misses, too many lines, too many finish lines. a finger gun to your head. eyes that smoke, darker and challenging; squealing tires, worn down gears, red lights.

—  the look in their eyes, that something to them

anonymous asked:

Any headcanons about how Aunt May and Uncle Ben would've been with Peter when he was young, before his parents left?

may and ben never planned to have kids because they genuinely didn’t want any, they’re fine to just babysit for a few hours to get their fill of cute children being wholesome. and sometimes they think they may want some, but then richard and mary have peter. and they’re so overjoyed for them, but they see how peter cries and how he keeps richard and mary up all night. how often his diaper needs changing, how completely needy children are. and they both agree they definitely don’t want kids.

Evidence on the Alexander Hamilton/ John Laurens relationship

I think the most convincing piece of evidence so far is the comparison of the famous ‘cold in my professions, warm in my friendships…’ letter and a letter Alexander Hamilton wrote to another friend, Richard Kidder Meade.(1*)

The sentiment in both letters is very similar. 'I don’t usually make friends, humanity sucks, but you’re cool.' 

However, the letter to Laurens is extremely breathy, romantic, and has a very 'young love’, sentimental feeling to it. It’s language is extremely romantic and it’s actually quite similar in tone to the love letters Hamilton wrote Eliza. 

 The letter to Meade however, is warm yet proper. He sounds a lot more like he’s writing carefully and considerately, not like the rushed, overwhelmingly romantic sentiments he’s gushing out in the John Laurens letter. 

read a more detailed post on this comparison here by revolutionary-pirate 

As well as this, in the letter Hamilton wrote asking Laurens to find him a wife, it’s very likely this was a spur of the moment, hurt response to finding out John was married. 

 JOHN NEVER TOLD HIM, I WONDER WHY? 

 He had literally just learned about John’s wife from a (2*) message passed on for John by  another friend, and I suppose, was hurt and decided to get back at John by saying he would marry. He didn’t intend to, and clarified he was joking, but he reminded John that he did desire women too and It seems a little cruel to describe your ideal female partner to the man you love, doesn’t it?

 Hamilton’s silence after John’s death is good evidence too. It’s very unusual that he would not write or speak about it unless it hurt him so indescribably.

also, the dick jokes he makes in his letters, and how a part of one letter that was certainly explicitly sexual has been CUT OUT, like physically cut out with scissors, or so I’ve heard. either that or entire letters lost/ destroyed. most likely by Eliza or the rest of Hamilton’s family.

their relationship was described as unusually romantic, not by modern historians, BY PEOPLE AT THE TIME! In a time when male friendships were much warmer. People even said Hamilton showed more affection to Laurens than he did his own wife. 

If John Laurens had been Hamilton’s only male love, I might be more inclined to think theirs was just a friendship, but he had other male ‘friends’ after Lauren’s death that were most likely much more than that aforementioned title.

One person said that Hamilton having other male loves doesn’t make him any more or less queer, and I one hundred percent agree, just that by having other examples of Hamilton’s love for men, any other evidence that would otherwise be ambiguous or inconclusive can be looked through a more definitive lens of Hamilton’s queerness and proved more readily.

(did that make sense???)

additional evidence I put in another post but am adding here anyway.

He also just was a flirty dude in general, to men and women. I know in the 1790′s there were rumors he was gay. How much of this was an attempt by Jefferson to ruin his reputation, I don’t know. Tbh, it probably was. Jefferson hasn’t realised how close to the truth he’d touched lol.

Hamilton’s own son didn’t want to publish the Hamilton/ Laurens letters in the biography he wrote of his father, because in his opinion, they were too gay.

Also, this counts for little, but as Ron Chernow says, Feminine is a word people constantly used to describe Hamilton.

John Laurens called Hamilton ‘dear boy’, he called his wife ‘dear girl’. This was an endearment he only used for Hamilton, none of his other friends or aides were given this nickname. Hamilton also called Laurens Jack or Jacky, an endearment John’s family used with him that John didn’t let anyone call him unless they were extremely close.

In answer to people’s claims that Hamilton loved Laurens but Laurens didn’t reciprocate these feelings, I would tell them they need to see things from John’s position.

He was the son of one of the wealthiest men in South Carolina. The eldest son, mind you. He went to a prestigious boarding school in Europe and was raised very religious. Obviously, he had a good deal of internalized homophobia. Comparing John’s letters to Hamilton with I don’t know, say, John’s letters to Richard Kidder Meade, or even his wife, it is obvious how much he cares for Hamilton. Its all about perspective.

Just because upon reading the letters for the first time, Laurens seems less interested, doesn’t mean that’s the case. 

There’s like a gay double standard here, if Hamilton wrote in the way John did, we might think he wasn’t interested because he was a naturally brash, flirtatious person, but Laurens was proper and restrained so a lot of the affectionate sentiments he expresses actually show a great deal of love on his part, when compared to his usual writings.

Also, we at the very least know that homosexuality didn’t bother Hamilton as much as it did many men of the time. He was firm friends with baron Von Steuben, a (*3) semi openly gay Prussian general. The same might be said about Laurens. He worked with the the baron and his aide Pierre Du Ponceau, who was the baron’s lover.

When writing his Fathers biography, John Hamilton evidently uncovered the Laurens-Hamilton correspondence and wrote at the rubric of one letter (I must not publish the whole of this). He, at the time, understood the implications the letters had better than many historians do today.

So much of their correspondence has been destroyed, why else but because of the homosexual or homeopathic relationship it would have revealed between the two men?

In conclusion, taking all this evidence and the plethora I’ve left out here, with some reasonable use of Occam’s razor, we can pretty fairly conclude that they were lovers. What other explanation is there for the sanitized portions of their letters, or for the romantic descriptions of their relationship at the time, or of their comparisons of themselves to Damon and Pythias (*4), or to Hamilton’s emotional withdrawal after Lauren’s death?

Look, you can talk about romantic male friendships of the era or wartime camaraderie all you want, but, really, to justify these explanations with the myriad of evidence we have that they were lovers, you do need to make a lot of assumptions, ignore a lot of evidence, and not take historical context into account. 

Occam’s razor people. 

The answer that requires the least mount of assumptions, ‘if’ statements and generalizations is generally the truth. In this case, that answer is that they were lovers. The only part we have to make speculation on is the contents of their destroyed correspondence. 

Even then, it is reasonable to say that lots of it was either overtly romantic (somehow even more so than the famous cold in my professions letter) or just sexual.

Seriously, Hamilton writes;

‘Do justice to the length of my nose… and don’t forget that I […]’

Literally, after making a penis joke, someone has cut out part of the letter. Ummm, what had he written to Laurens? Not hard to imagine what it might have been.

Can we please just stop trying to straight wash history? The continental army won because it was pulled together by a gay immigrant, the federalist papers were written by a bisexual man who was also a founding father, a prominent abolitionist and soldier in that era was gay, Eleanor Roosevelt was likely bisexual, there’s evidence James Buchanan was gay or asexual too. 

Look, these people’s sexualities didn’t influence their contributions, but it feels nice to be represented in history. Allow us this.


Also, Gaydar * 


*2. Got fact checked about this- thanks to the littlelionofvalleyforge!- I said before Hamilton read a letter not meant for him, this was incorrect. read this post here

*1. I apologize, in an earlier version of the post I said 'Henry Meade’ who doesn’t exist. I mixed the names of James McHenry and Richard Kidder Meade

*4. The Pythagorean ideal of male friendship, a story about loyalty and basically being willing to trust your friend with your life. Written at a time (ancient Greece) where homosexuality, homo-romanticism and homo-eroticism was less taboo than that of the 18th century. ‘Damon and Pythias’ became a kind of euphemism for two male lovers.

*3. I say semi openly gay because pretty much every soldier above the rank of Lieutenant colonel had heard the rumors or the news about the baron’s near arrest in France and Germany for his sexuality. He also never denied being gay, kinda just sneakily left the country. 

This post is subject to change, I’m constantly re wording and editing it so if you think something could be said better or is not wholly accurate, hmu.

I wrote this instead of doing chem revision ugh.


 Anyway, Lams is real, queer history rocks. You can’t convince me otherwise.

It Doesn’t Matter

Pairing: Richard x Reader

Warning: Smut!



          You were watching him onstage, entranced by how much energy he had while performing in front of everyone. Everything about him mesmerized you.

           “You’re staring,” Jared said, coming up behind you.

           You nodded, “I know.”

           “Talk to him,” Jared said simply.

           “He knows,” you shrugged, “Just won’t say he likes me too. I’m honestly not even sure of his feelings.”

           “He likes you,” Jared said, “I know he does.”

           “Well, you might want to inform him,” you said.

           Jared chuckled, “I’ll do what I can.”
