Admiral Hoshi

Because I can't stop procrastinating....

There's a fic I am dying to read, but don't have a whole lot of time to write, and that's the brass's relationship with Hoshi. I know Hoshi was promoted partly because RDM killed off everyone we were invested in (or sent them to rescue Hera), and the Gaeta/Hoshi relationship was an afterthought, but I have a thing for fic about the Pegasus people and yes, for Hoshi.

So, I'd love, love, LOVE to see a fic about the relationship between Hoshi and Adama/and/or/Tigh, and how that could have evolved. What made them respect Hoshi so much? Why did they think he would inspire "universal respect" but couldn't be bothered to promote him past junior lieutenant before that point? Did Hoshi take any flack from the Pegasus people for integrating well with the Galactica or not, and how did Hoshi himself feel about that? What did they think about him after the mutiny, knowing that he had been/still was in love with Gaeta (especially Tigh, who had his experiences with Ellen)?

This is one I'll probably never get around to, but I am dying to read it!!!

I think it's interesting. I will look into it.

I have to re-watch Razor and see if Noel is in it. What I remember of Narcho? He really wasn't that nice. So, I'm really rather glad the webisodes paired Felix with Louis, you know? I re-watched Pegasus and Blood on the Scales, and in both, Noel was first a jerk, and then a bitter jerk.

After the mutiny, I'm thinking that Louis Hoshi just may have been too numb to do anything but work. It's hard to feel things like Pride and Hope when you have a hard time the ship you are living in might crumble into pieces upon the conclusion of the next jump. It's difficult to care about things like one's rank, when someone might shoot you any in the back of the head out of spite.

Louis may not have participated in the Mutiny, but the Adama loyalists don't believe he didn't know about it; mutiny participants escaping the Admiral's notice, who know he overcame Felix Gaeta's plan, somehow feel that he betrayed his lover and therefore them. No, life is not a certainty for Louis Hoshi, so he just works and waits for death, not knowing when Hades is going to swallow him up again....

...Okay, feeling melodramatic. Trying to think creativlely?
