So anyway, while I’m feeling copacetic with putting my nonfiction text words on tumblr:
In the process of writing The Longfic, I’ve accidentally fallen in love with a number of characters I never gave much thought to before, which, you know, happens. This includes South (who, for all of the compliments I’ve gotten for how I write her, never really caught my attention until Way Ahead Way Behind and everyone else’s South Dakota Defense Squad posts), Utah (gay married with Georgia, do not EVEN fight me), and the Counselor.
(Oh my gosh, the Counselor. Oh my fucking gosh. Did you know he’s an ENTP fronting as an INFP and you can tell by how he directs and balances his priorities on the relevant axes? DO YOU KNOW HOW NEAT THAT IS. Have you thought about how straight-up intellectually brilliant he must be to juggle everything he does behind the scenes that is implied by his onscreen activities, like really thought about it in detail.)
But seriously that makes me wonder how popular the Counselor is. South is of course a fucking queen and I’ve seen a couple people who are really attached to Utah but as far as I know, there’s no unique tag for the Counselor that I can use to search for fanwork with him. While he tends to appear in certain Freelancer fics, I don’t think I’ve seen any fanart of him or anything with him as a central character (which, in the case of him not appearing centrally, is as it should be — he is by nature and inclination someone who does not make himself prominent except as required and focuses on causes rather than his inner world, unless he’s doing far more acting than we already know him to be doing). I know @epsilongrif has mentioned liking him, and it makes logical sense to me that he would have gotten fandom attention when he appeared in s6, but I’m a noob and therefore don’t actually know of any evidence that might support that.
oh, and i forgot to add when I wrote this: where the FUCK is all the director/counselor porn
THIS FANDOM CONSTITUENCY DEMANDS ANSWERS
do you think i am fucking around about the porn, tumblr? i am not even within the vicinity of fucking around.
you made a fanon ship out of”that’s the spirit, knew you had it in you” but the director and the counselor HABITUALLY PICK UP EACH OTHER’S SENTENCES
I DEMAND CONSISTENCY
