Your Papa Hale is so much like I see him in my mind! Hot and sexy, but also... kind? I must say that he has something in his eyes. And funny is that you name him Noah :D like canon name for our John.
Anon, you have NO idea how mad I was when I heard that’s what they decided to call John. Like… not only can they not give him the name 96% of fandom wanted, but they had to give him the exact name I’d decided was perfect for Derek’s dad? What kind of insane, must-be-accidental-but-still-feels-like-a-slap-in-the-face nonsense is that??
But back on topic, I’m so happy you picture him similar to how I do <3 I have such a strong image of Papa Hale in my mind and I just love it when I find fics or headcanons that line up with my ideas of him.
