"On the lam" or "on the run" often refers to fugitives. The Thesaurus of American Slang proclaim that lam, lamister, and "on the lam" — all referring to a hasty departure — were common in thieves' slang before the turn of the twentieth century. A "lamister", or, "lamster," is a slang term for fugitive.

The ship name of the relationship with Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens who were so obviously gay for each other.
Oh my god, Lams is canon.

Have you ever heard of Lams? They were sooo gay.

Person A: Have you read the letters?
Person B: No.
Person A: Well Lams is totally canon, in a letter that Ham wrote to John, he said, "Cold in my professions, warm in my friendships, I wish, my dear Laurens, it might be in my power by actions rather than words to convince you that I love you."
Person B: Wow, they definitely were gay.

The best ship ever. Many Hamilton fans' OTP.

It is the canon ship of Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens. It actually happened historically. Just look at their gay love letters.

Many of their letters have been censored by future historians, and many possibly destroyed. They were soooo gay.

As a hamilton fangirl, I am obbsessed.
"What's your OTP?"
"Lams all the way."
"SAMEEE!"
