Veronica Mars [ENFP]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / the Mod

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Veronica is an effortless fountain of adaptation; when one method to solve a case fails, she switches to another, without needing much time to transition in-between. She relies on her hunches and instincts to guide her, sometimes with accurate results, and sometimes to her own determent; she tends to believe the worst in people (due to her Enneagram 6 issues). She is open to new experiences and possibilities, and tends to over-think a lot of her more personal moves. Veronica can also be somewhat impulsive, and finds it hard to settle on a single career path.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): She teems with emotion, but does not share her feelings with others easily. Veronica will sidestep emotional questions, responding with sarcasm or insults, to diffuse the tension and disguise her true feelings. She never told her dad about the rape; she doesn’t talk about it with anyone else, until she’s on her way to solving it, either. She prioritizes her emotions, for good or bad, when making decisions – and sometimes forgets to care about other people’s feelings along the way (such as dropping everything and going to help Logan out of a murder charge, despite Piz’s parents traveling a long distance to meet her). She strongly identifies with a few people, including the abused and under-represented, but isn’t afraid to turn on them when she doesn’t agree with their moral tactics; she is offended when her dad enters into a brief adulterous fling.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): Friends get favors; everyone else pays for her time. Veronica is motivated to solve cases for financial gain; she has uses and plans for that money. She believes in laying down the law. She uses observable facts, often, to entwine with her witty comebacks, in order to protect herself and generate sarcasm. Veronica tends to act on her feelings. She often bypasses her emotions and lays down “the law” – in this state, she tends to use other people to get what she wants.

Introverted Sensing (Si): What happened to Lily? The murder is old news, but Veronica cannot move past it. The subjective perceptions she formed, during those traumatic months of her life, shape all her expectations of her peers, her friends and her parents, moving forward. Each negative experience reinforces her deeply rooted insecurities and perceptions, making her unable to escape them, move forward or deal with her trauma. Her sentimentality tends to manifest less in objects, and more in returning to former relationships.

anonymous asked:

What are some of your all-time favorite LoVe chapter fics & one-shots?

Hi there! Thanks for the ask! A long whiles ago we received a similar ask and in response Kait and Suzanne put their Veronica Mars fic starter kit together. We’ve been meaning to update it for some time and this was a fantastic kick in the butt.

LOOK AT THEM!! THEY’RE SO PRETTY.

All of the fics below have already been recommended by us but they’re definitely our Logan x Veronica, “YOUR JOURNEY BEGINS HERE” kit. 

We’ve each picked one fic in a wide variety of timeline categories giving you thirteen different fics. Our individual all-time lists would be LONG, but this is a pretty good one for us merging our minds, we think. It will also likely be updated once Mr. Kiss and Tell is officially released as other fics are written which take into account both TDTL and MKAT canon details. 

PRE-SERIES FICS:

A Trace of Meaning 
Author: ghostcat3000
Rating: T
Genre: Friendship/Humor
Setting: Pre-series
Spoilers: None
Chapters: 1
Word Count: 6, 833
Status: Complete
Summary: 13 year-old Logan Echolls and 14 year-old Veronica Mars wait at the Kane Estate for their held-up sleepover hosts to show up. Pre-series canon speculation.
Notes: Veronica is one part sweetness and two parts sass. And Logan is one part “I wanna snuggle you” and two parts “I want to smack you.” If thinking this fic is canon is wrong, then we don’t want to be right.

HIs Friend, Too
Author: arbailey
Rating: T
Genre: Angst/Romance (well mostly romance, tbh)
Setting: Pre-series AU
Spoilers: 1.22, “Leave It to Beaver”
Chapters: 12
Word Count: 42, 162
Status: Complete
Summary: When Veronica catches her best friend with an ageing action star, everything falls apart.
Notes: A “what-if” that changes the course of the series. Well-written. It’s nice to see how Veronica and Logan’s friendship develops past Lilly’s transgressions.

MID-SEASON or POST-SEASON AU:

Sins of the Father
Author: Emiko74
Rating: M
Genre: Romance/Mystery
Setting: AU Season 3
Spoilers: 3.07, “Of Vice and Men”
Chapters: 13
Word Count: 44, 731
Status: Complete
Summary: As their freshman year at Hearst draws to a close, Logan and Veronica’s relationship begins to unravel. But a new mystery could bring them together again.
Notes: One of our all-time faves. Goes AU after 3.07 – so the rapist is revealed but it deviates from canon in terms of the identity. SO damn good. Better mystery than those we got in season three, in our opinion. Funny, and poignant, and super sexy too.

Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own

Genre: Romance/Adventure
Setting: Season 1 AU
Spoilers: 1.03, “Meet John Smith”

Summary: Silly Duncan stopped taking his meds. Now, one dead Fitzpatrick later, Logan and Veronica need to get him out of town. Too bad they hate each other.
Notes: Some parts are funny, some parts are angsty, and all will keep you on the edge of your seat. It has UST up the wazoo and you’ll keep reading until your eyes cross. Also has one of the hottest fakeout makeouts in the history of the trope.

FUTURE FIC AUs — WRITTEN BEFORE NEW MOVIE CANON:

Follow the MacGuffin
Author: happilyshanghaied
Rating: T, with some chapters rated M
Genre: Romance/Adventure
Setting: Future
Spoilers: All three seasons
Chapters: 40
Word Count: 204, 743
Status: Complete
Summary: After a botched FBI case sends Veronica scrambling back to Neptune, she decides to lick her wounds while working at Mars Investigations. What starts out as a simple cheating spouse case for one of the city’s most notorious residents, quickly goes awry and triggers a series of events that unravel a twisted plot leading her to the last person she’d expect to find.
Notes: Harkening back to ye olde days of seasons one and two, this fic is noir. You’ll be in awe at her wondrous exposition, and you’ll want to shake every character until all their secrets pop out. And there are a lot of secrets. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE. If you indeed manage to finish all 200, 000 and change words of this fic, there’s a sequel! Yes, that’s right, folks; this fic will leave you wanting more and you won’t be kept waiting – Red Herrings is in progress, and is currently 23 chapters and 235, 758 words so far.

Summary: Veronica and Logan find their way back to each other and solve a mystery, too.
Notes: Another perfect future fic. It’ll make you laugh, cry, and fall in love even more with the characters (especially one Logan Echolls). You just… you need to read this fic. Uses the addiction metaphor like the movie, but from Logan’s POV and makes it a little more clear.

MOVIE-VERSE FICS:

Summary: A series of one shots set in and around the Veronica Mars movie, all from Logan’s POV. These can be read independently. All of the titles are taken from song lyrics from the movie soundtrack.
Notes: What a fantastic movie-verse fic. Like the summary says, this is a series of one-shots that focus on Logan’s POV. And it’s done BRILLIANTLY. If you ever wanted to fall in love with LoVe again (see what I did there?), or if the movie’s focus on Veronica’s POV left you yearning for Logan’s take on things, this is the series for you! 

The Long Way Home

Genre: Romance/Drama

Word Count: 18, 439

Summary: “We should take the long way home.” Veronica’s POV. Snapshots that begin in the cab ride which we see in the movie through Logan’s return from deployment. 
Notes: This. Fic. THIS FIC!!!! Holy mackerel. This fic. Is that not a clear enough statement of our love for this fic? We feel like it is. First off, we’re not joking: this is close to perfection. The only reason we’re not giving it the full “perfect stamp” is because absolutelyiris is still writing and we have no doubt some of her future stories will knock us on our ass with feels. But…it’s poignant, and honest, and SEXY, and just damn good. Read it once. Take a break. Read it again, because DAMN.

MOVIE-VERSE AU FICS: 

Learning to Count on You” Series
Author: CaitlynMacKenzie (aka susanmichelin)
Pairing: Logan/Veronica
Rating: PG-13 through R
Genre: Romance/Mystery
Setting: 
Post-Movie AU
Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie
Chapters: 73 thus far
Word Count:
 255, 552
Status: In progress
Summary: The story picks up after the Veronica Mars movie. Logan is still on deployment and Veronica is working at Mars Investigations on a routine cheating spouse case, when Wallace walks into her office with terrible news. Now Veronica is drawn into a case that is very personal for her and the stakes to solve this one are extremely high. It continues with “A Closed Set” (complete) and “Espionage” (in progress) but there are other mid-story or prequel elements sprinkled throughout. 
Notes: Rich character interaction, exciting mysteries, and a pretty cute addition to the Echolls family, this series is 255,000+ words of a pretty compelling argument that a happy ending is not outside the realm of possibility for Logan x Veronica. Above all, this fic is SMART and is clearly written by an author who loves every individual character for what they bring to the Veronica Mars table.

Summary: Based on a spoiler that was leaked prior to the movie, Wallace runs into Logan while they’re both on the job. They talk, Logan gives Wallace his number to pass on to Veronica.
Notes: What do we want? Part five of “Waypoints”!!! When do we want it? NOW!!! A series of fics (right now a quartet, but we are hoping and praying for a fifth fic) that has Logan in his movie profession, Veronica in her pre-Neptune movie profession, and the two of them being so freaking adorable and wonderful and grand that we just want to punch their faces.

Summary: Logan comes home for the holidays to spend Christmas with Veronica and her family.
Notes: Veronica and Logan are in a long distance relationship, which makes the time they’re able to spend during Christmas seem incredibly crucial. The emotions and FEELINGS are just RIGHT THERE. Each person fighting to be normal, and it’s just sigh inducing to see Veronica completely in character be open about needing Logan. Also, SEXY. Sexy like, WOAH. And heartbreaking because IT’S CHRISTMAS and both Veronica and Logan want some things to be different than they are. Appearances by Wallace, Keith, and Alicia.

Notes: Not a crack!fic. Actually just an amazing fic tbh. Based on The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, though familiarity of the book isn’t necessary. Logan involuntary travels back and forth through time, visiting Veronica throughout her life. This fic manages to be sweet and angsty at the same time. It’s just perfection, honestly.

A Strange New Story Every Time

Summary: Ten years clean of Neptune living, Logan’s past finds him at an all night grocery store.
Notes: This is absolutely essential reading for the fandom. Probably one of the most popular and most recommended fics EVER, and for good reason. The characterization of Logan is perfect: he’s grown up and responsible but still witty and charming. (To quote Ryan Hansen, Veronica’s great, too.) Seriously, read this fic if you haven’t already. If you already have, read it again. It’s just that good. (We’ve probably read it twenty times between the two of us. You think we’re joking?)

Veronica Mars: Logan Echolls [ISFP]

OFFICIAL TYPING by Charity / The Mod.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Logan is an inferno of intense emotions, much of the time. His intense inner need to be true to himself means defiance against his father, regardless of the physical abuse that entails, because to do otherwise would lose his sense of self. He is angry when the proposed memorial for Lily, his girlfriend, is meant to cast her in a light different than she was; so much so that he includes scenes in the memorial video that her parents do not like. His obliviousness to how others may perceive his actions, at times, gets him into trouble (he sets up a fight ring with homeless people, which results in bad press, for example).

Extroverted Sensing (Se): He is thrill-seeking and opportunistic, accustomed to the life his wealth entails and in making the most of it. Logan is easily bored, and resorts to troublemaking behaviors in school, for his own self-amusement and to create new dynamics within the school yard. He can be rash and impulsive, sometimes resorting to physical violence to express his feelings toward others. He thinks fast on his feet, such as when he informs the public, in the midst of an apologetic interview, that his father intends to donate millions to a good cause, as a way of “showing up” his dad and getting revenge.

Introverted Intuition (Ni): His instincts are sometimes right, sometimes wrong; he doesn’t rely on them to make most of his decisions, but does trust his inner perceptions about people, however erroneous they may be. Logan has surprising insights, at times, into Veronica and his other friends; these flashes of insights, and ideas about how he wants his future to be, occasionally intrude on his daily activities and inspire him to make changes in his life or warn other people off his friends.

Extroverted Thinking (Te): He acts on his feelings, always. He has a sarcastic remark for every occasion, often based in observable behaviors and facts of life. Logan uses extreme but practical methods to protect his friends (including bringing a gun to a dangerous location, out of a fear for Veronica’s life).

Four weeks after he leaves her, Lieutenant Logan Echolls is dead. Veronica dissolves in her grief, because there’s more to their story. Far away and unknown to her, the man she loves is not gone, but lost. He wakes up in the middle of nowhere knowing one thing for certain: he needs to get back to her. *The reunion is not quite 180 days for reasons that would spoil the story

CaitlynMacKenzie, “Come Back to Me” T, Post-Movie AU.*

The first story (Come Back to Me) picks up after the Veronica Mars movie. Logan is still on deployment and Veronica is working at Mars Investigations on a routine cheating spouse case, when Wallace walks into her office with terrible news.

”Write me long letters, Veronica.” In the months after her return to Neptune, things return to whatever level of normal they can. Veronica has a case, and a new thing for communicating with Logan.

semele, “Spanning Continents,” M, Post Movie.

“In five months, you’re going to have sex with Veronica Mars,” he remembers as he lies down every night, and his fantasies go wild, but then five months turn into three, two, one, weeks, days, and suddenly Logan finds himself at an airport, and discovers that he’s absolutely terrified.

youcallitwinter, “gravity is gonna keep you tied down to this city,” T, summer after S3 through Post TDTL.

[your life in extended parenthesis] the lone neon nights and the ache of the ocean, and the fire that was starting to spark. From the love to the lightning and the lack of it.

Notes:
This is one of the wonderful fics to come out soon after the movie was released and is beautifully written.  Set up with vignettes and moments of their 180 days through to a few months after Logan returns, it features well-done characterization, angst and a lot of sweetness.  It also has some very funny quips and I found myself laughing out loud a few times while reading.  A great read.

Unexpectedly, their 180 days became slightly more than that. A case took her out of town and they’ll have to wait just a little longer. But what is a couple of extra days? Compared to everything that is them? Of course, Logan Echolls should know by now how crafty an impatient Veronica Mars can be. A Fleet Week fantasia, post-movie, inevitable AU, shameless good times.
Notes:
I don’t think I can express how perfect this fic is or do any sort of justice to it with my notes.  I felt like I was one of the young women watching them reunite as I read it – big smile plastered to my face.  It has one of the best endings to a fic that I’ve read in a long time.  I went and had to reread it just while I was writing this, it is THAT good.

Notes:
Part 2 of the Done by Only Me series, as with the first part, the reunion is near the end of the fic.  This is the companion piece to Bryrosea’s Waste of Breath fic.  It is Veronica’s POV and it is one of the most powerful fics I’ve read in a long time.  As with part one, the research that she did for this and the level of care she had for Veronica and what she went through during that time floored me.  I loved the scenes of Veronica at Stanford and there is an amazing moment when she learns of what Logan now does for a living.  I have always wanted to create art for the reunion scene from this fic because it is one of the most moving reunion depictions I have read but I’m afraid it will entirely spoil the fic for those who haven’t read it.  You will not be disappointed by this reunion. The last few lines of the fic are pure perfection (redundancy be damned).

This is another one of my favorite post movie, post 180 days fics.  It has an incredibly sweet scene when Logan and Veronica reunite as well as a poignant dinner that interrupts their reunion.  I adore Keith and Veronica’s relationship and also have a special place for Logan and Keith moments and this fic did not disappoint with that.   As with all of her fics, Macha’s characterization is flawless, her stories are filled with wonderful moments that you can feel and her Logan and Veronica interactions make me melt.

Although not quite about their reunion, this Lianne POV fic takes place the day Logan returns. It is so good and I had to recommend it as another way their reunion day could have occurred. This may be more of a family drama fic than a romance, but watching Logan and Veronica through Lianne’s eyes was something I never knew I needed.   And the moments between Veronica, Logan and Hunter are perfect.  I love how petpluto looks at the relationship of Veronica and Lianne in this as well.  She brings these characters to life so beautifully.
