This fic… it got out of hand. Silly me thinking this was going to be 500 or so words.
FebuWhump #15: “Run. Don’t look back.”
I have a number of fics that kind of imply Whamilton, but this one definitely is. Nothing explicit because I don’t have that level of confidence in my writing.
If you’d like to read Trouble in the Air, it’s here! A short teaser is below.
The grip on his wrist abruptly tightens. Alexander clenches his teeth to hold back a yelp. Any tighter and it would be truly painful. He flexes his fingers once, focuses back on Washington. Those dark eyes are focused on him so intently. Alexander has never felt so watched by the General. Briefly he feels something akin to a lone deer hunted by a wolf. He tests Washington’s hold, pulling to free his hand, but there’s no slack.
“Oh, my boy. I am not concerned about the enemy.”
Some strange sound comes from Washington, an odd rumbling in his throat like a growl. Alexander thinks of the wolf again. A beat later he’s let go- the General turns away, curling in on himself against a nearby tree.
“Go. Get out of here.”
There is something to Washington’s tone that tells Alexander he should obey, but he is stubborn. He stays put. “I said I won’t leave you alone.”
The General doesn’t answer. A pang of worry and… something else, trickles down Alexander’s spine. Washington seems vulnerable- something he never shows, even to him. Then comes a soft sound, a barely concealed groan.

Ever write something and you intend for it to be a drab thing and then BAM! Things go off the rails?
And, y'know, maybe oops, I created some vampire monster Washington.
POURQUOI TRUMP n'a-t-il pas AGI ? Le travail des PATRIOTES rendra sa GRA…
A few days ago on February 17, 1825, Lafayette visited the tomb of George Washington at his home at Mount Vernon, Virginia.
G.W. Parke Custis offered Lafayette “a golden ring containing some hair” of Washington.
Although eager to start his Farewell Tour of the southern and western states, Lafayette delayed his departure from the nation’s capital to honor the memory of his close friend and participate in commemorative events in recognition of the first president of the United States.
Did I just pre-order all the Hamilton funko pops?? Why yes,yes I did.

On this day in 1778, Baron von Steuben arrives at Valley Forge. His task? To better train and organize the soldiers in the American army.
In some ways, it’s a bit odd that Steuben landed in Valley Forge—of all places. He was a former Prussian officer who’d been looking for work with the British, French or Austrian armies. He’d been unsuccessful, and he found himself meeting with Silas Deane and Benjamin Franklin, the American ambassadors to France. He was told that he could go to America as a volunteer, but he’d have to earn his own pay and rank.
Steuben apparently did not take that too well! He left the meeting in disgust. But lacking other alternatives, he eventually returned and volunteered his services.
And we are all very happy that he did.
It took several months, but Steuben eventually made it to America and was able to meet with the Continental Congress. He’d brought a letter of introduction from Benjamin Franklin. That letter described him as having a “a true Zeal for our Cause, and a View of engaging in it and rendring it all the Service in his Power.” Congress sent Steuben to meet with General George Washington, then in winter camp at Valley Forge. He arrived there on February 23.
What unexpected things did he accomplish for Washington? The story continues at the link in the comments.

I bought John for the shelf several months ago, then George last week. Something didn’t seem right until I saw them next to one another…

#OTD February 23, 1825, Lafayette begins his Southern tour after having participated in celebrations honoring the memory of George Washington.
Lafayette’s son, George Washington Lafayette, assisted by postmaster general John McLean and French Engineer Simon Bernard, laid out a course throughout the western and southern regions with the intention of being in the Boston, MA vicinity by June 17, 1825, and planned the trip with enough time to allow Lafayette to lay the cornerstone of the Bunker Hill Monument.

“To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.”
Written technically as a modern reincarnation AU, but can be read as just a plain modern AU. Washette.
It’s not ideal – what is, since the damned plague ruined everything? – but George doesn’t care. He’s curled up with his partner on the couch and they’re in the middle of a horror movie marathon, just because George loves them.
Earlier, George’s friends all Zoomed to wish him a happy birthday; Patsy even had a coconut cake delivered to him. Gilbert hates coconut cake, so George can take his time eating it without worrying that it’ll vanish by tomorrow.
Now, Gilbert pushes another kernel of microwave popcorn into George’s mouth while little Danny rides his tricycle down the halls of the Overlook.
Um … happy birthday Washington? Ha!
I guess because his actual birthday seems to be today, I just wanted to write a relaxed reincarnated Wash chillin’ with his French boyfriend. In this godawful pandemic. Because I’m a monster apparently.
I’ve never actually watched The Shining all the way through, but it’s not like you can avoid absorbing its iconography :)
