All right, as per managerie76’s suggestion, I am going to use frayk for all Fraser/Kowalski posts on my personal blog and on fuckyeahfraserkowalski.
………….. I don’t mean any disrespect to anyone’s personal preferences, but I just want to chime in and say..
a lot of people in the due south fandom here on tumblr (myself included) get really cringey over smushed pairing names like that and the subject of ‘frayk’ came up before and this was the general consensus:
… I’m not trying to tell you what to do, I’m just imploring you to please reconsider :..
I know tagging it with something including a forward slash is tricky if you want to search or track the tag, but perhaps we could go with ‘FraserKowalski’ or ‘FraserRayK’ without the slash…
basically anything except FrayK.. please?
I don’t take offense, no worries! I honestly just chose FrayK because it might appeal to more people, but you see, the whole point of tagging ships is to have a place where everyone knows where to go for their ship’s posts. I still can’t figure out how to include a backslash and I think it would be cumbersome for people who aren’t in the know or who might have never used a proper slash name in their lives, so it’s a shame there’s not a neat solution. The closest I can get to peace of mind is just reverting all the tags back to their original ‘fraserkowalski’, which gets the point across.
Name smushing to me is a necessary evil to communicate in fandom, but it’s not always ideal. I for one hate using ‘spirk’, thus why I’m glad ‘space husbands’ caught on so well. And oh man, there is a certain feeling one gets when you’re reblogging a photoset of Loki dying in Thor’s arms and you have to tag it ‘thorki.’
In summation, though ‘FrayK’ isn’t bothersome to myself, it is only wise to use a ship name that everyone else uses or else you’ll swimming alone on an empty sea and talking to a volleyball. I’m just grateful that ‘Frowalski’ didn’t catch on first. :)
