coprime: two game-obsessed, winning-obsessed nerds (ships that I ship)
Thursday, February 23rd, 2017 04:17 pm
Canon: Andromeda
Pairing: Tyr Anasazi/Seamus Harper
Canon Level: Coworkers/Antagonists

I must admit that I never watched, like, the last two seasons of Andromeda. Maybe the end of the third season as well. (2003 was a while ago.) The show had become less of an ensemble piece and more focused on Dylan Hunt and, I thought, suffered as a result. But the show had some great potential, which is one way fic can really shine. Harper is smart, sneaky, and sarcastic. He's been through a lot but keeps on truckin', and always with a smart comment on his tongue. Tyr is pragmatic, proud, and ruthless. He's lost basically everything his culture values but has survived because that's what he does. You might think Tyr would look down on Harper for being just human, but I think Tyr might see a lot of what he values--a strong will to survive, a cunning and suspicious mind, a sharp intelligence, and the ability to do what needs to be done--in Harper. If they teamed up, they would most assuredly achieve their goals, albeit with a wake of chaos trailing behind them.
