whyy stop

satisfied;

the rewrite @latinolaurens and you all have been waiting for: a ‘satisfied’ lams rewrite    

↳ written to: satisfied // original Broadway cast of Hamilton and Renee Elise Goldsberry

check out my dear theodosia rewrite?


LAURENS:
All right all right! That’s what I’m talking about!

ANGELICA:
now, everyone, give it up, for Alexander’s best man: John Laurens!

LAURENS:
a toast to the groom!
(to the groom, to the groom, to the groom)
to the bride!
(to the bride, to the bride, to the bride)

From your best friend
(John Laurens, John Laurens)
Who is always by your side
(By your side, by your side)

To our union (to the union!)
To the Revolution!
And all the hope that you inspire!

May you always, be satisfied

Rewind… Rewind… Rewind..

I remember that night I just might- rewind!
I remember that night I just might- rewind!
I remember that night - I remember that…

LAURENS:
I remember that night - I just might treasure that night for the rest of my days
I remember us soldier boys having a drink-or a few, to our coming praise

I remember that night - that night was like a dream that you can’t quite place
But, Alexander, I’ll never forget the first time I saw your face
I have never been the same
With those bright eyes, and that top notch brain
And when you said you liked me, I forgot my dang name
Set my heart a'flame, ev'ry part a'flame, this is not a game!

ALEXANDER:
You strike me, as someone who has never been satisfied

LAURENS:
I’m sure I don’t know what you mean? What do you mean?

ALEXANDER:
You’re like me, I’m never satisfied

LAURENS:
Is that right?

ALEXANDER:
I’ve never been satisfied

My name’s Alexander Hamilton

LAURENS:
I am John Laurens

What are you hoping for?

ALEXANDER:
I’m going to make my legacy, and prove myself in this war. Just you wait, just you wait…

LAURENS:
So, so, so
So this is what it feels like to feel passionate for someone at your level, what the hell is the catch?

It’s the feeling of freedom, it’s winning the fight, it’s something you get from someone you like; you see it right?

The conversation lasted two drinks- maybe three drinks
We even shared a couple flirty winks

It felt like a dream- no, it felt like a dance
It’s a bit of a posture, it’s a bit of a stance

He’s a bit of a flirt, and refuses to hide it
I asked about what he hoped for did you see his answer?
His hands started fidgeting, but he held up his stance
He’s penniless, but he’s reaching for something grand

Handsome, boy does he know it!
He’s got a lot on his mind, and he’s not afraid to show it
I want to take him far away from this place
Then I turn and see Eliza’s face, and I am

LAURENS, ANGELICA, ELIZA:
Helpless

LAURENS:
And I know he is

LAURENS, ANGELICA, ELIZA:
Helpless

LAURENS:
‘Cause her eyes, are just

LAURENS, ANGELICA, ELIZA:
Helpless

LAURENS:
And I realize, three fundamental truths at the exact same time

LAURENS:
[ his face turns grim, tears stinging the backs of his eyes ]

ALEXANDER:
John, are you alright? ….John?

NUMBER ONE!

LAURENS:
I’m a boy in a world in which my only job is to get rich!
I’m the oldest son, and I’m the one who has to lead the battalion on
And I’m the oldest, he’s the wittiest
And the gossip in New York City is insidious
And Alexander is penniless, ha! That doesn’t mean I want him any less.

ELIZA:
Elizabeth Schuyler, it’s a pleasure to meet you.

ALEXANDER:
Schuyler?

LAURENS:
[ downs another drink ]

NUMBER TWO!

LAURENS:
He’s after her ‘cause she’s a Schuyler sister
That’d elevate his status, I’d have to be naïve to set that aside, maybe that is why
I stop writing him so many letters and put his old ones aside
Nice going there, John! You know he was right: you will never be satisfied!

ELIZA:
thank you for all your service

ALEXANDER:
If it takes fighting a war for us to have meet, it will have been worth it

LAURENS:
[downing another drink, choking up] I’ll leave you to it

NUMBER THREE!

LAURENS:
I know my best friend like I know my own mind
I will never find anyone as passionate or as kind
If I tell him that I love him, he would leave her and be mine
- but he’s not mine!
I tell myself “I’m fine!”
But I am lying!

But when I fantasize at night it’s Alexander’s eyes
As I romanticize what might’ve been if I didn’t hide my true feelings

At least the dear, Eliza’s his wife
At least I keep his letters in my life

LAURENS:
[choking back a sob] 

to the groom! (To the groom, to the groom, to the groom!)
To the bride! (to the bride, to the bride, to the bride!)

From a soldier, who is always by your side!
To the union! (to the union!) To the Revolution!
And the hope that you inspire!
May you always, be satisfied.

And I know, she’ll be happy as his bride
And I know, he will never be satisfied
I will never be satisfied

I rarely join KPop Idol Group Fandoms, but this is what happens when I do…

SEVENTEEN, my current addiction. The other 9 members are still in progress, but yes I plan to do headshots of all of them. Because I like torturing myself that’s why

I really should stop, because I still have my thesis to worry about… but boys are tempting to draw

When Jim is in a fight, Bones’ jaw hurts too.

When Leo’s leg breaks during a mission, Jim walks with a limp.

When Jim has the flu, Bones has to curl up in bed with him as he’s freezing cold.

When Bones misses his daughter, Jim misses the father he never met.

When Jim is dying in the warp core, Leo can feel his blood boil, and his head throb, and his muscles ache.

When Leo gets shot in the chest on a mission, Jim swears his heart stops too.
