Hamilton, 4 recs, Theodosia/Philip

One of my favorite things about Hamilton fandom is that it's collectively decided that in a world where EVERYONE LIVED, that Theodosia and Philip would TOTALLY have fallen in love. And I for one, am here for it.

Why This Must Be Read: This is the story that made me fall HARD for this pairing. Philip and Theodosia meet as strangers in a bookshop and flirt a little until they both realize who their fathers are. Philip manages to survive his duel and they begin a courtship via letters. But how to convince their fathers to bless their union? This is the BEST of fix-it fics. I love how sharp and fiercely intelligent Theodosia is, and how much Philip respects her mind. I adore the delightful loving chaos that is the Hamilton family (8 kids!!) and Burr's adoration of his only daughter. I love how Theo and Philip work together to bring peace between their families. Lovely lovely lovely. Highly recommended.

Mods, can I have a pairing tag?
