Kay so I wrote a fic about this for a diff fandom but I thought it would work here as well… Au where every one in the ham musical has their own special ability. It can range from being able to control elements to advanced innovation skills.

Maria’s a potions/poisons expert (by default she’s immune to any kind of poison) and she runs a shop that sells the stuff. She needed to go away to visit her family and asks her girl friend Eliza who could control the element of water to mind the store and take care of the deliveries. One of which is someone requesting for a love potion (Eliza doesn’t agree with using it but still goes with it) she makes her way to deliver the thing but on the way she’s met with chaos courtesey of Jefferson and Hamilton who are once again getting on each other’s nerves. It was worst because they were actually using their powers against each other with Jeff telekenitically throwing items at Ham not hurt but mostly to just pisd him off (random trash) and Ham blocking them with a self generated shield while attacking with small bursts of energy that makes Thomas jump. One shock was too much and it caused Tom to bump into Eliza and for her to accidentally spill the potion all over Thomas who now under the effects of the potion is staring at Hamilton.

Eliza explains Ham freaks out and begs Liza to fix it. Thomas is flirting with Ham. Kissing his hand, lots and lots of sweet talking. He tries to hug Ham but Ham pushes him away.

Thomas keeps saying “I love you” and Alexander retorts “no you don’t,!”

Eliza calls Maria to ask for help and after laughing her ass off gives the ingredients to an antidote that works on any potion. Eliza works on the antidote while Ham is stuck with

“You’re so gorgeous”
“Stop touching my face”
“I love you so much Alexander Hamilton”
“Stop saying that!”
“But it’s true.”
“You don’t know what you’re saying”
“Yes I do.”
“Thomas”
“You make me feel things, Alexander. You make me…feel.”
“…once you get the antidote you’ll be back to normal”
“back to being a coward”
“Wait, what do you mean–?”

Eliza then appears with the antidote and after much pushing, made Jeff drink it.

Fast forward to a couple of days later, Thomas doesn’t remember anything and Alexander just wants to forget.


Maria is arranging her potions when she notices something

“Beloved?”
“Yes, my song?”
“You said you spilled the last of my love potion?”
“Yes.”
“But here’s the last love potion”
“Oh. Perhaps you had an extra one.”
“No. I’m certain that this is the last one.”
“And I’m sure I spilled it all over Jefferson’s head”
“Wait. What did your potion look like?”
“Well…just like that in the same shaped of bottle except the purple is darker.”
“darker….oh. Oh!”
“What. What is it?”
“That wasn’t a love potion”
“then what was it?”
“That was a truth serum”
“Oh. Oh! Well, damn.”

Let’s see, you started a brawl in the streets with Ned Stark and disappeared from the capital. My husband died in a tragic hunting accident. It must have been traumatic for you. My only daughter was shipped off to Dorne. We suffered through a siege. A rather short siege. A rather short siege that I didn’t expect to survive. And now I’m marrying my eldest son to a wicked little bitch from Highgarden while I’m supposed to marry her brother, a renowned pillow biter, so…

Man not allowed to sing at his grandmother's funeral because he's gay
“Anytime someone sins and then acts in the name of God, it causes scandal."
By Sarah Karlan

When 23-year-old Connor Hakes’ grandmother passed away last month, he began making plans to sing Franz Shubert’s “Ave Maria” at her funeral at an Indiana Catholic church. 

He’s been going to the church since he was a kid, including singing with the church, and he also studied vocal performance in college. But when the church’s pastor found out that Hakes was gay via an old photo of him attending a Pride celebration, he sent Hakes a letter informing him that he would not be allowed to sing at the funeral. 

The letter from Pastor Bob J. Lengerich reads, in part:

“Anytime someone sins and then acts in the name of God, it causes scandal. This is the main reason why you cannot (at this time) offer your gifts in service at St. Mary’s.”

“The Catholic Church upholds the dignity of those with same-sex attraction. At the same time, it does not permit same-sex relationships or openly advocating for them because it causes scandal.”

Hakes sang at his grandmother’s gravesite after the funeral instead. Apparently, the bishop who supervises the pastor apologized to Hakes and his family for the incident. But that won’t fix the initial rush of shame, humiliation and sheer meanness that comes from experiencing something like this. 

Door Struggles

Critters asked: How many cumulative hours has Vox Machina fought with doors on stream?

It’s impossible to say in in-game time because some of it wasn’t measured in neat 6-second rounds. We can, however, measure real life time! For this (and for fun), we decided to include some barriers and portals that functioned as doors as well. We didn’t include doors that didn’t pose a threat to Vox Machina. Updated to Episode 85.
