Summary: Black and white was all anyone saw until they touched their soulmate. For some people, color quickly rushed into world and for others, all they ever saw was black and white. Two businessmen, who absolutely hated each other, managed to bump into each other on their way up to their office. Little did either know that their world would erupt in a staccato of color.

so we got thomas and angelica, Aaron asleep with Theo, Madison wearing the pants of the relationship, Philip having a crush on tjeffs (courtesy of @halpdevon and her anons’ ideas), Laf in a huge sweater and my favorite trope where Tjeffs and Laf are twins in modern au
sometimes I try so hard to sleep so I lay down and get so ready until I get this overwhelming sound of jon as king george in my ear screaming “HI MY NAME IS LIN-MIRANDA I KNOW YOU DONT KNOW WHO I AM BUT-”
“John!” you call from the bottom of the stairs. “Can you help me bring these upstairs?”
Your fiancé walks down to help you carry a few of the boxes upstairs. The two of you finally get the boxes upstairs and start decorating for Christmas. Once the tree is put up, you light the lights and the fireplace while John makes hot chocolate for the two of you. He smiles as he sits next to you. He hands you your mug and pulls the blanket from the back of the couch and wraps it around your shoulders. You rest your head on his shoulder and sigh contently. He runs his fingers through your hair.
You start to drift off to sleep, while John whispers in your ear. “I love you so much, baby. More than you could ever imagine. You’re my everything.”
You smile and lean up to kiss him.
He blushes. “I thought you were sleeping.”
“I thought you were adorable.”
You wake up on the couch. John is sitting under the Christmas tree with a bow on his head, patiently waiting for you to get up.
You laugh and walk over to him. You grab a bow off of one of the boxes and set it on your head, while you sit next to him.
I haven’t done much research on him, but I know that for a Philadelphian he was a pretty solid northerner. Opposed slavery, humanitarian, liked free public education (and education for woman), all around a pretty Cool Dude.
One of the last 1776ers, he also got john adams and thomas jefferson back together after the whole shunning period (it took him like 3 years and a tourist to even start to get anywhere with it!)
the only bad thing i can think of at the moment is him being kind of a shitty doctor (he highly favored bloodletting, purges, and mercury rubs even after we all started realizing they were harmful)
don’t have to separate these things with Jefferson. He can have written this incredible
document, and several incredible documents, that we all, sort of- with things
that we all believe in. And he sucks.
think those are both true, and those have to be both true. I think we really
have to stop separating them, ‘cause that’s when you get into trouble. That’s
when you stop letting people be whole people.
