after_setup_theme always runs
SOLUTION: after_switch_theme does exactly what I intended here. It fires after the theme is switched TO your theme. One of the solutions mentioned below uses switch_theme. This does not have the desired results, since it only happens upon switching away from your theme.
Here is my modified code
add_action( 'after_switch_theme', 'fwp_theme_setup' );
