[It had been a couple months since Aaron Burr and John Laurens started dating. Honestly, Aaron was kind of surprised that they got together in the first place, or that they had stayed together as long as they had. This loud kid who he somehow kept running to all across campus, who kept ending up in random classes of his. (Probably it was more accurate to say that Aaron kept turning up in John's classes, actually. He was really, really serious about pre-law, but still. He found the time to take as many classes as he could. To explore different things. To keep his options open.)

John should have been the last kind of person he would get together with, but...there was something about him. His friendliness. The way he paid such close attention to Aaron. That kind of care and attention had been something he hadn't even realized he'd been missing, until John burst into his life and started giving it to him.

...Of course, there were downsides to dating an impulsive, adventurous, enthusiastic guy. He more than sometimes had really dangerous ideas. Even for dates.]

No, I agree that would be romantic. But I don't think sneaking in would be the best idea.

[So, the thing is, Cosima isn't a law student. She really has no business invading the law school library, not when she has a perfectly good library on the main campus. Except, it's midterm season and that means the place is crawling with stressed out undergrads, including some of her own students. And Cosima would rather not be interrupted by an overly eager freshman who hasn't grasped the finer points of punnet squares while she works on her proposal.

Earlier that week she'd discovered her office and apartment had too many distractions, she'd overstayed her welcome at the three closest coffee shops, and the med students had chased her out of the medical school library after she got into an argument about what qualified as being a "real doctor". She'd practically given up when she stumbled upon the law school library. It had decent lighting, wasn't too crowded, and was free of undergrads, making it the perfect study spot.

Cosima's noticed that she's not the only frequent visitor. She keeps watching on particular law student who never seems to leave. He's always there before her and he's always still there when she leaves. She's also not sure she's ever seen him leave to take a break or lose focus. It's both creepy and impressive.

She's 99% sure he's not a robot, but there's that 1% chance that he is. It's that 1% (and the fact that if she looks at another paper on the epigenetic impacts on stem cell development she will scream and get kicked out of her new favorite study spot) that inspires her to stop at his study table on her next coffee break. She sets down two cups of coffee and a stack of cookies wrapped in a napkin that she blatantly stole from a law seminar, hoping it's enough to lure him out of his study fog.]

You look like you could use a break, man.

[ It was something like mid-afternoon when Theo peered into her father's study, a small set of books under her arm and a small smile on her lips. ]

Daddy? Do you have a few minutes?

[ Look, this conversation truly should be in private, so she's making sure. ]
