A tiny bit of a behind-the-curtains peek at Saint Jude's. Of course the board of directors of a cross-continuum place of study (and residence) for characters from all kinds of different worlds involves Lord Asriel, that's pretty much his life's work. And those desk plants of his may or may not be the kind found at the PPC HQ.
Hamilton! is making a pain of himself in Sarah's classes. He has a prickly but mutually appreciative relationship with Leia ("winning was easy, governing is harder...."), sometimes gets along with Daenerys, but generally does not play well with characters from more fantastical, magical-monarchy verses. And writes very long essays detailing his arguments, but keeps losing points for appealing to some sort of "realism" arbiter or "applicability" arguments that do not fly at Saint Jude's. And here is where I pointedly do not make any jibes about Hamilton's canon of a humanist, meritocratic (and, unrelatedly, hip-hopping) US democracy being just as divorced from any "prime world" reality as any space opera these days....tralala.... good thing IRL events 2016-onwards stopped affecting GND-verse.
There's this weird unmentioned and unmentionable awareness of a hierarchy of credibility, however, at the uni, which does result in the characters from musicals canons being kept mostly separate in a building with stronger disbelief-disruption fields because why is everybody singing??? takes some serious handwave power. (Christine and Javert have book versions....)
Also, interestingly, just a throwaway term here but Altered Carbon's canon tech of Stacks and sleeves works rather neatly with this crossover type situation when it comes to situations of the same fictional character played by different actors.... (less so for the "an actor can slip between fictional roles they have played" as has also been seen a few times, and the final gag here.)
and because hell if I am going to look up all the credits and copyrights,
character list in order of appearance :
Nux from Mad Max: Fury Road (honorary Wrench Wench, where he met...)
Finn and Rey from the new Star Wars trilogy (Finn and Nux have become pretty good mates dealing with their past indoctrination-into-canon-fodder issues. With Rey, it's mechanics talk and getting starry-eyed over green growing things)
Javert from Les Misérables (currently, campus security officer)
Alexander Hamilton as portrayed by Lin-Manuel Miranda in the Hamilton musical
Lord Asriel and his snow panther daemon, from the His Dark Materials 'verse, The Golden Compass/Northern Lights movie version as played by Daniel Craig
Dennis, formerly the muddy anarcho-syndicalist Peasant from Monty Python's Holy Grail (who's nowhere near retirement - he's not an old man, he's only 37!)
and in the final panel, Daniel Craig slips into another, more ass-kicking and famous role of his.....
(also referenced: Telcontar is one of LOTR's Aragorn's aliases; and Jupiter Ascending gets fun poked at, again)

Thank you so much.
Wasn't expecting that one democratic peasant from Holy Grail to turn up, though.
Bows repeatedly Wayne's World style*
haven't seen/listened to Hamilton but this was great
I rather imagine him to be the head of the debate team.
Another amazing page! <3
Please tell me the Philosophy Department is four Australians called Bruce and a British guy named Michael (whom they call Bruce to clear up the confusion).
